2011 Playoffs


Free consultation viagra John Greenleaf Whittier wrote, free consultation viagra “For of all sad words of tongue or pen, free consultation viagra the saddest are these: ‘It might have been!’” There will be time in the coming days and weeks to discuss the postmortem on the New York Rangers season and to look ahead to next year. Free consultation viagra However, free consultation viagra now is the time to reflect back on the Blueshirts who let a golden opportunity slip through their fingers against the Washington Capitals.

Free consultation viagra “We had some opportunities we needed to grab and we didn’t. Free consultation viagra We had a couple of chances to get some wins in Game 1 or Game 4, free consultation viagra” Henrik Lundqvist explained to Rick Carpiniello of the Journal News. Free consultation viagra “You can’t expect to win every night, free consultation viagra but when you have that chance, free consultation viagra that opportunity, free consultation viagra you have to grab it. Free consultation viagra We didn’t do it. Free consultation viagra That’s not good enough.

Free consultation viagra The New York Rangers had enough chances in this series that their Game 5 loss could have been a precursor to being in the position to win the series at Madison Square Garden on Monday night.

Free consultation viagra Unfortunately, free consultation viagra the Rangers could not hold a lead late in Game 1 and then, free consultation viagra for the first time all season, free consultation viagra fail to hold a lead going into the third period of Game 4.

Free consultation viagra “I thought the most important thing of the series was in the first four games, free consultation viagra we have a lead (in three of them) in the third period, free consultation viagra and we come out with one win, free consultation viagra Rangers Coach John Tortorella told Carpiniello. Free consultation viagra “And there’s not many opportunities, free consultation viagra against a team we’re playing against, free consultation viagra when you have them there, free consultation viagra just to get it done one time. Free consultation viagra So I thought that was a very key situation within the series.”

Free consultation viagra For the first time in the series, free consultation viagra it appeared that the Rangers suffered from a carryover effect from the previous game. Free consultation viagra While the Blueshirts came out strong on their first shift, free consultation viagra the Capitals took over the tempo of the game and never looked back. Free consultation viagra The Rangers never seemed to get back off their heels until they fell behind by two goals.

Free consultation viagra The biggest problem is that the Rangers best line was the The Pest Line of Sean Avery, free consultation viagra Brian Boyle and Brandon Prust. Free consultation viagra All three are solid support players, free consultation viagra but they can’t be your best offensive players in a deciding game – and in Game 5 – they were.

Free consultation viagra When you look back at this series, free consultation viagra the easiest way to dissect it is to realize that Washington’s most talented player, free consultation viagra Alexander Ovechkin, free consultation viagra dominated the Rangers most talented offensive player, free consultation viagra Marian Gaborik.

Free consultation viagra The Rangers had to constantly account for Ovechkin for every second he was on the ice. Free consultation viagra The Capitals did not have the same concern when Gaborik, free consultation viagra or any other Ranger forward, free consultation viagra was on the ice. Free consultation viagra With Washington not having to worry about one specific player, free consultation viagra it was easier for them to carry out their defensive system and stay within the framework of that game plan.

Free consultation viagra It seemed that every Capitals rush and shot put the Rangers into a “life and death” shift on defense while every Rangers rush and shot attempt was a “day in the park” for the Capitals defense.

Free consultation viagra Prior to the game Boyle told NBC, free consultation viagra “We need to make it a little harder on them – get shots to the net, free consultation viagra some traffic [in front of the net and] second and third shot opportunities. Free consultation viagra We can’t be one shot and back out of the zone again.”

Free consultation viagra As it turns out for the Rangers, free consultation viagra this was far too often the case in the series, free consultation viagra never mind just Game 5.

Free consultation viagra The deeper into the playoffs the Capitals get, free consultation viagra the more interesting it will be to see how their new defensive style of play holds up against a team with more offensive weapons than the Rangers.

Free consultation viagra The Rangers might have been able to overcome all of their offensive shortcomings as compared to the Capitals if their power play showed any semblance of life. Free consultation viagra The reality was the Rangers power play proved to be their biggest detriment. Free consultation viagra They managed just one power play goal in 21 chances against the Capitals and finished the season going 2-46 in their last 14 games – playoffs included.

Free consultation viagra Given how well The Pest Line was playing in Game 5, free consultation viagra perhaps Torts should have kept them together on the power play rather than put Boyle between Brandon Dubinsky and Gaborik.

Free consultation viagra It is that pathetic power play that makes some of the strange calls/non-calls seem irrelevant, free consultation viagra but I need to vent so here goes.

Free consultation viagra All series long the officials were letting both teams get away with a lot of physical play after the whistle with no penalties being called. Free consultation viagra However, free consultation viagra as a result of the scrum following the Capitals first goal, free consultation viagra one of the referees decides to go and call a bench minor penalty against the Blueshirts.

Free consultation viagra With about eight and a half minutes to go in the third period, free consultation viagra Boyle had a partial break but was slashed on the stick but no penalty was called – even though there was one called against Avery in the third period of Game 4 which eventually led to the Caps tying goal.

Free consultation viagra Not too long after that, free consultation viagra Jason Chimera banged into Lundqvist while The King was in the crease and no calla was made – even though Boyle was called for two goalie interference penalties in Game 4.

Free consultation viagra Again, free consultation viagra given the Rangers anemic power play, free consultation viagra those two calls were not going to make a difference but they do make you go “Hmm”.

Free consultation viagra While the Rangers sorely missed the inspiration and perspiration that Ryan Callahan brings to the lineup, free consultation viagra to point to his loss as the reason the Rangers lost this series is not fair to the Capitals. Free consultation viagra Besides, free consultation viagra the Pittsburgh Penguins have survived and thrived without Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. Free consultation viagra

Free consultation viagra You have to wonder if the Blueshirts might have shown too much respect for the Capitals offense. Free consultation viagra The Rangers concentrated so much of their effort into stopping Washington that they were never able to generate enough “easy offense” such as breakaways and/or odd-man rushes.

Free consultation viagra In 1994, free consultation viagra we all agreed that “This One Will Last a Lifetime”. Free consultation viagra Unfortunately, free consultation viagra it is going to have last at least one more year. Free consultation viagra However, free consultation viagra for the first time in a long time things appear to be going in the right direction for the Rangers.

Free consultation viagra “We’re still in a process. Free consultation viagra So we just keep on going. Free consultation viagra We try to get better. Free consultation viagra I think there’s areas on our team where we need to get better. Free consultation viagra So we continue to build, free consultation viagra” Tortorella said to Carpiniello.

Free consultation viagra Well, free consultation viagra at least I have the New York Mets.

Free consultation viagra Damn, free consultation viagra I am screwed.

Pfizer viagra 50 mg New York Rangers meet the Los Angeles Kings. Pfizer viagra 50 mg One night after the Kings blew a 4-0 lead in a 6-5 overtime loss to the San Jose Sharks, pfizer viagra 50 mg the Blueshirts picked the wrong time to blow their first third period lead in 30 chances.

Pfizer viagra 50 mg The game might not have gone the way that Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau designed it, pfizer viagra 50 mg but his plan to shift the focus away from his players and on to him paid off in spades.

Pfizer viagra 50 mg The Rangers have been Team Adversity all season, pfizer viagra 50 mg including having to win their final game of the season and then hoping that Tampa Bay would defeat Carolina. Pfizer viagra 50 mg Now down three games to one, pfizer viagra 50 mg the Rangers face the ultimate must-win game on Saturday afternoon in what should be a raucous Verizon Center. Pfizer viagra 50 mg The Rangers have more than one more hill to climb this time, pfizer viagra 50 mg but Brian Boyle appeared to have the right attitude following last night’s devastating loss.

Pfizer viagra 50 mg “I’m not looking for three in a row. Pfizer viagra 50 mg We’re looking for one. Pfizer viagra 50 mg We just want to win Game 5, pfizer viagra 50 mg” Boyle told Rick Carpiniello of the Journal News. Pfizer viagra 50 mg “Tonight will be tough to be positive. Pfizer viagra 50 mg We’re going to dwell on it, pfizer viagra 50 mg and I think that’s part of it. Pfizer viagra 50 mg If you’re not a little upset about what happened there’s something wrong with you.”

Pfizer viagra 50 mg Carpiniello spelled out the height of the hill the Rangers have to climb.

Pfizer viagra 50 mg Here’s the bad news. Pfizer viagra 50 mg Teams trailing 3-1 have won 23 of 240 series in history (9.6 percent). Pfizer viagra 50 mg Here’s the good news: Twenty-one of those have happened since 1987, pfizer viagra 50 mg including twice last year. Pfizer viagra 50 mg And the Capitals did it to the Rangers in 2009, pfizer viagra 50 mg and had it done to them by Montreal in 2010, pfizer viagra 50 mg and have been involved in six (2-4) of those 23 comebacks.

Pfizer viagra 50 mg So what was it that caused Game 4 to turn 180 degrees away from the Rangers? Was it overconfidence on the part of the Blueshirts? Was it their youth surfacing for the first time in the series? Was it the Capitals rising to the challenge of desperation?

Pfizer viagra 50 mg The answer contains a combination of all three, pfizer viagra 50 mg but a big part of the blame has to go to the anemic Rangers power play which went 0-7 last night. Pfizer viagra 50 mg Just one power play goal in Games 1 and 4 and it is the Rangers heading back to Washington with a chance to end the series.

Pfizer viagra 50 mg The power play has become the NHL’s version of football’s prevent defense – the only thing it is preventing is the Rangers from winning. Pfizer viagra 50 mg Not only are the Rangers not generating much offense on the power play, pfizer viagra 50 mg but it continues to suck the life out of any momentum the team has built up.

Pfizer viagra 50 mg For the first time in this series the Rangers played a passive third period and it cost dearly as momentum swung Washington’s way in the final period of regulation with the Rangers having no answer to the Capitals onslaught.

Pfizer viagra 50 mg “We talked about all the things we wanted to do, pfizer viagra 50 mg about jumping and being on our toes and playing in their zone, pfizer viagra 50 mg but we didn’t do any of it, pfizer viagra 50 mg” Chris Drury explained to Larry Brooks of the NY Post. Pfizer viagra 50 mg “It was almost like we were in a situation we might not have been comfortable with and went, pfizer viagra 50 mg ‘Oh, pfizer viagra 50 mg bleep, pfizer viagra 50 mg what do we do now?’

Pfizer viagra 50 mg “And we got a little tight, pfizer viagra 50 mg” he said. Pfizer viagra 50 mg “At least that’s what I think happened. Pfizer viagra 50 mg We never really could make the play or put the couple of shifts together to get it back.”

Pfizer viagra 50 mg The third period was to the Rangers what the second period was to the Capitals. Pfizer viagra 50 mg Everything that went right suddenly went wrong. Pfizer viagra 50 mg The only difference is that the Rangers struck quickly to extend their lead to 3-0 while Washington methodically turned the game in their favor with three goals in just over 12 minutes.

Pfizer viagra 50 mg As the third period progressed, pfizer viagra 50 mg all I could think about was the movie “The Replacements”. Pfizer viagra 50 mg In it Gene Hackman is coaching a bunch of replacement football players who were unable to execute because of their own fears. Pfizer viagra 50 mg Hackman asks his players what they are afraid of. Pfizer viagra 50 mg After some dopey answer, pfizer viagra 50 mg Keanu Reeves hits on the point that Hackman’s character wanted to make.

Pfizer viagra 50 mg Reeves’s character relates that he is afraid of “quicksand” and offers up the following explanation.

Pfizer viagra 50 mg “You’re playing, pfizer viagra 50 mg and you think everything’s going fine, pfizer viagra 50 mg but then one thing goes wrong … and another … and another … and you try to fight back, pfizer viagra 50 mg but the harder you fight, pfizer viagra 50 mg the deeper you sink … until you can’t move … you can’t breathe … because you’re in over your head. Pfizer viagra 50 mg Like quicksand.”

Pfizer viagra 50 mg That line from the movie perfectly describes the New York Rangers in the third period of Game 4. Pfizer viagra 50 mg The harder they tried to free themselves from the Capitals “quicksand”, pfizer viagra 50 mg the depper they sank in it.

Pfizer viagra 50 mg You got the feeling that once Washington tied the game at 12:07; Game 4 instantly went into overtime mode with the next goal being the winner even if it were in regulation time. Pfizer viagra 50 mg It is in those types of situations where Washington’s skill level trumps the Rangers. Pfizer viagra 50 mg You knew it was going to take some sort of fluky goal to win the game for the Blueshirts. Pfizer viagra 50 mg In the end, pfizer viagra 50 mg it was the Capitals who scored the fluky goal.

Pfizer viagra 50 mg On the plus side, pfizer viagra 50 mg two Ranger free agents to be stepped up their play and definitely earned contracts for next season. Pfizer viagra 50 mg Ruslan Fedotenko has drawn much praise from Coach John Tortorella for his style of play and his potential to bring to the lineup the same attributes that Ryan Callahan brings to the table. Pfizer viagra 50 mg His contributions on the second and third goals were as important as goal scorers Marian Gaborik and Brandon Dubinsky.

Pfizer viagra 50 mg Matt Gilroy stepped up his play offensively and defensively and showed a physical side to his play early in the game. Pfizer viagra 50 mg I am not sure if the Rangers will be able to fit him into the salary cap or how his return could affect Michael Del Zotto, pfizer viagra 50 mg but Gilroy elevated his game in the biggest game of his NHL career.

Pfizer viagra 50 mg Of course what can you say about Henrik Lundqvist? His glove save on Alexander Ovechkin about midway through the first overtime was the only reason the game even went to double overtime – despite battling cramps in the overtime periods.

Pfizer viagra 50 mg As they approach Game 5, pfizer viagra 50 mg the Rangers just need to reflect back to the last couple of weeks and how they responded when faced with big games – the back-to-back wins against Boston and Philadelphia, pfizer viagra 50 mg the Game 82 victory against New Jersey and Sunday afternoon’s playoff win against Washington.

Pfizer viagra 50 mg The Blueshirts should not put Game 4 behind them. Pfizer viagra 50 mg Rather, pfizer viagra 50 mg they should embrace it as an example of what good they can accomplish when they are on their game and it should serve as an example of what can go wrong when they deviate from their game plan.

Viagra effects on the penis Prior to appearing on HBO’s “24/&” show leading up to the 2011 NHL Winter Classic the only “acting” experience Washington Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau’s resume contained was as an extra in the movie Slap Shot. Viagra effects on the penis Boudreau portrayed a member of the Hyannisport Presidents (green sweater #7).

Viagra effects on the penis With some extra time in between Game 3 and 4, viagra effects on the penis Boudreau returned to his “24/7” roots as he channeled his inner Rex Ryan. Viagra effects on the penis Much like the Jets coach, viagra effects on the penis Boudreau took to the air to act crazy – as a fox.

Viagra effects on the penis Dan Steinberg of The Washington Post offered up the following transcript of Boudreau’s interview with Washington radio station 105.9.

Viagra effects on the penis “Well, viagra effects on the penis the one thing, viagra effects on the penis its reputation is far better than the actual building, viagra effects on the penis” Boudreau said. Viagra effects on the penis “I mean, viagra effects on the penis it’s nothing. Viagra effects on the penis The locker rooms are horrible. Viagra effects on the penis The benches are horrible. Viagra effects on the penis There’s no room for anything. Viagra effects on the penis But the reputation of being in Madison Square Garden is what makes it famous. Viagra effects on the penis Also, viagra effects on the penis our building’s a lot louder, viagra effects on the penis too. Viagra effects on the penis So I mean, viagra effects on the penis they can say what they want, viagra effects on the penis but it’s not that loud in there.”

Viagra effects on the penis Madison Square Garden is the oldest building in the NHL and very well may be a dump, viagra effects on the penis but it is our dump – the same way Shea Stadium was to New York Mets fans.

Viagra effects on the penis His building is also the place where they have to rely on some guy blowing on a plastic horn in order to make noise. Viagra effects on the penis In addition, viagra effects on the penis I seem to remember seeing Caps fans dump water and ice on the Rangers bench and coaches. Viagra effects on the penis Bruce had better watch out because that liquid that might be spilled on him on Wednesday night might not be water.

Viagra effects on the penis You have to give Boudreau credit for shifting the focus off his team and on to himself – much like Ryan did for his Jets.

Viagra effects on the penis You have to remember that the Capitals have lost their last two playoff series after holding two game leads. Viagra effects on the penis After coming from behind to defeat the Rangers in 2009, viagra effects on the penis Washington won the first two games against Pittsburgh only to lose to the Penguins in seven games.

Viagra effects on the penis Last year, viagra effects on the penis the President Trophy winning Capitals could not close out Montreal as the eighth seeded Canadiens roared back to win in seven games after trailing three-games-to-one.

Viagra effects on the penis It is a point that Tarik El-Bashir of The Washington Post addressed.

Viagra effects on the penis “One doesn’t need to be a pessimist to see troubling parallels between what’s happened over the past 80 minutes and what transpired last April, viagra effects on the penis when Washington let a 3-1 series lead slip away and fell to Montreal in Game 7.”

Viagra effects on the penis In addition to shifting the focus off his team, viagra effects on the penis Boudreau continued deflecting by complaining about the officiating – a time-honored tradition among coaches in all sports.

Viagra effects on the penis Steinberg offered up the following diatribe from the Boudreau interview.

Viagra effects on the penis “During the playoffs you have a supervisor at every game, viagra effects on the penis so if you have a complaint or something that you want to lodge, viagra effects on the penis you talk to the supervisor and then he’ll talk to the referees and he’ll talk to the powers that be, viagra effects on the penis” Boudreau explained. Viagra effects on the penis “But the trick about that is it’s usually closing the door and the horse has left the barn, viagra effects on the penis it’s an over-and-done fact, viagra effects on the penis because the referees are different every game in the first series. Viagra effects on the penis .?.?.”

Viagra effects on the penis “So what they do is they can warn the other guys that this is what the other team’s talking about and look out for it, viagra effects on the penis but that’s pretty well what you can do. Viagra effects on the penis I mean, viagra effects on the penis the refs are very serious about this too, viagra effects on the penis this is their playoffs too, viagra effects on the penis their Stanley Cup, viagra effects on the penis so they don’t want to make any mistakes. Viagra effects on the penis But it happens.”

Viagra effects on the penis For his credit, viagra effects on the penis Rangers coach John Tortorella took the high road when asked about Boudreau’s comments during an interview with Michael Kay of ESPN 1050 radio in New York.

Viagra effects on the penis “We haven’t really thought too much about locker rooms, viagra effects on the penis how loud it is, viagra effects on the penis” Larry Brooks of the NY Post wrote. Viagra effects on the penis “I’m not even sure what he’s trying to say there.

Viagra effects on the penis “We’re just concerned with trying to be the best we can be and play the right way. Viagra effects on the penis Now, viagra effects on the penis I will say the fans gave us a tremendous lift last night. Viagra effects on the penis “I’m hoping that we can get off to a good start and continue on our way. Viagra effects on the penis That’s our concentration. Viagra effects on the penis Nothing else around us is going to (deter) us from our focus, viagra effects on the penis and that’s our next game.”

Viagra effects on the penis In addition to his general whining, viagra effects on the penis er complaining, viagra effects on the penis Boudreau vented about the rough treatment goalie Michal Neuvirth received from the Blueshirts in Game 3 and he called for the NHL to review what the Caps coach called a Marc Staal head shot to Mike Green as Alexander Ovechkin tied the game in the second period.

Viagra effects on the penis If you look back at the first three games, viagra effects on the penis Tortorella is correct when he said the Rangers could just as easily be ahead 2-1 in the series. Viagra effects on the penis A defensive breakdown cost them a chance to win Game 1 1-0 and a two-minute stretch in Game 2 cost the Rangers dearly.

Viagra effects on the penis The Blueshirts ability to stay within striking distance is not one that is lost on the Capitals – hence Boudreau’s attempt to shift the focus.

Viagra effects on the penis “The mood at the team’s Arlington practice facility was businesslike Monday. Viagra effects on the penis High-minute players stayed off the ice and those who spoke to reporters did so in calm, viagra effects on the penis measured tones, viagra effects on the penis” El-Bashir wrote.

Viagra effects on the penis “But it was still impossible to escape the feeling that the Capitals are at a crossroads in their postseason journey.”

Viagra effects on the penis Washington’s Brooks Laich confirmed El-Bashir’s opinion when he told the writer that the fourth game “is really going to swing the series. Viagra effects on the penis We could take a stranglehold on it, viagra effects on the penis or it could be a very long series.”

Viagra effects on the penis Given their past history, viagra effects on the penis the last thing the Capitals want is a long series because they have lost their last three Game 7 playoff matchups.

Cialis sales Forget everything that has been written about the magic of playoff beards because the Rangers are basking in “the Power of the Moustache” thanks to Brandon Dubinsky’s bank shot that propelled the Rangers to their Game 3 victory. Cialis sales

Cialis sales The only way that goal could have been more amazing was if The Moustache called the banks off Karl Alzner’s back and Alexander Ovechkin’s stick.

Cialis sales The Rangers victory on Sunday sets up a critical Game 4 on Wednesday. Cialis sales While it still might be too early for a “must-win” game, cialis sales it is not too early for a “really-need-to-win” game. Cialis sales The last thing the Rangers want to do is head back to the Verizon Center facing elimination. Cialis sales However, cialis sales the Capitals might be feeling even more pressure to win on Wednesday.

Cialis sales A Game 4 loss could cause flashbacks for the Capitals. Cialis sales After coming off a three- games-to-one deficit to defeat the Rangers in 2009, cialis sales Washington proceeded to blow a two-games-to-none lead against the Pittsburgh Penguins as they lost in seven games.

Cialis sales In 2010, cialis sales Washington frittered away a three-games-to-one lead as the Montreal Canadiens came back to win in seven games.

Cialis sales Lost in all of the talk of the Rangers perseverance in Game 3 was a pair of game-saving defensive plays. Cialis sales With about seven minutes left in the second period, cialis sales Marcus Johansson’s scoring opportunity after a Rangers power play was thwarted by a Dan Girardi shot block.

Cialis sales The second huge defensive play came six and half minutes into the third period when Ruslan Fedotenko’s diving backcheck broke up a Capitals’ two-on-one with Ovechkin and John Carlson.

Cialis sales Another unsung play was made by Marc Staal on the Rangers second goal. Cialis sales His ability to get his point shot over a sliding Matt Bradley, cialis sales and on goal, cialis sales was the key to Vinny Prospal’s rebound goal.

Cialis sales Even Erik Christensen and Brian Boyle deserve credit on the Rangers first goal as the Blueshirts finally got some traffic in front of Michal Neuvirth and the Rangers had a player get a shot on net.

Cialis sales Speaking of Boyle, cialis sales you have to love his work as the center on the “Pest Line” with Sean Avery and Brandon Prust. Cialis sales They are the reverse “Bash Brothers” from the old Disney Ducks movies. Cialis sales I say reverse because it is the Rangers smaller guys who are the physical players as opposed to the bigger guys in the movies.

Cialis sales The Rangers definitely made a more concerted effort to crowd Neuvirth in an attempt to solve the young netminder. Cialis sales

Cialis sales “Every scrum in front of our net, cialis sales they were hitting our goalie, cialis sales” Caps Coach Bruce Boudreau told Tracee Hamilton of The Washington Post. Cialis sales “They [the officials] kept warning them not to do it, cialis sales did nothing about it, cialis sales so they kept doing it.”

Cialis sales So what was the difference in Game 3 as opposed to the first two games?

Cialis sales “We scored some goals. Cialis sales I don’t think we did much different. Cialis sales I thought we got to the blue a little better today, cialis sales” Coach John Tortorella admitted in the post-game press conference. Cialis sales “Again, cialis sales it’s a tight-checking game. Cialis sales The chances are hard to come by both teams. Cialis sales We found a way to score a goal, cialis sales a couple of goals here. Cialis sales There’s no magic potion. Cialis sales We played the same way we want to play. Cialis sales We just scored three, cialis sales they scored two.”

Cialis sales As the Rangers look forward to Game 4, cialis sales they are going to need to continue crowding Neuvirth while finding a way to hit the net when they have open shots. Cialis sales

Cialis sales One interesting point during the game was made by Ed Olczyk who kept hammering home the point how Neuvirth was extremely reluctant to come out of his net to play the Rangers dump-ins. Cialis sales The Blueshirts might want to use that to their advantage by getting the puck in deep and going to work on the Capitals defense with an aggressive forecheck.

Cialis sales The defense is going to have continue being more active in the offense, cialis sales but it is a Catch-22 situation because the blueliners have to be careful to pick their spots and the forward have to be ready to cover the defensive zone if needed.

Cialis sales Speaking of Catch-22 situations, cialis sales the Caps first goal came as a result of the Rangers losing track of Ovechkin. Cialis sales The second goal came as Girardi focused in on Ovechkin to the point that Staal was left in front to defend three Caps.

Cialis sales Part of the way the Rangers can increase their offensive output is to be quicker in their transition game so that they can overcome the Capitals defensive system.

Cialis sales Obviously, cialis sales if the referees are going to start clamping down and handing out more penalties, cialis sales the Rangers must be careful during the post-whistle scrums. Cialis sales Far too often the referees will call the retaliation as opposed to the initiation.

Cialis sales While Boudreau and some of his players lamented the number of calls that went against the Capitals, cialis sales forward Matt Hendricks managed to put it all in perspective while issuing a warning for both teams as they head to Game 4 on Wednesday night.

Cialis sales “A lot of them, cialis sales obviously, cialis sales we were guilty, cialis sales” Hendricks said to Katie Carrera of The Washington Post. Cialis sales ”We’ve just gotta really watch our sticks there. Cialis sales They’re calling them a little tight now in the playoffs, cialis sales as everyone’s heard around the league we’ve just got to be a little more disciplined.”

Cialis sales Staying out the penalty box is one thing, cialis sales but the Rangers power play has to find a way to have an impact on this series. Cialis sales The problem is that the Blueshirts inability to score with the man advantage is heightened by their inability to generate any consistent offense on the power play – something which saps the energy out of the Garden and stalls any Rangers momentum.

Cialis sales In addition to getting more traffic in front of Neuvirth, cialis sales and finding a way to get more shots on net, cialis sales the Rangers have to get more movement on their power play – both in terms of passing the puck and player movement.

Cialis sales On the Rangers first five-on-three power play, cialis sales the Rangers spent the time looking to set up one perfect shot. Cialis sales The problem is that by standing around, cialis sales the Blueshirts made it easier for the Capitals to defend. Cialis sales Puck movement plus player movement equals more open shooting lanes.

Cialis sales I guess it is time to once again address the 800-pound gorilla in the rink known as the War room in Toronto. Cialis sales The NHL made the correct call on the goal that was disallowed at the end of the second period. Cialis sales However, cialis sales in this day and age, cialis sales why doesn’t the league get the “official game clock” synched up with the clock in the arena and synched up with the network’s clock.

Cialis sales The biggest problem was that it took NBC an hour before they ever showed the NHL’s overhead camera shot with the official clock inserted. Cialis sales You can bet that the MSG Network would have had that shot up as soon as possible during the second intermission instead of waiting until late in third period.

Cialis sales While I am speaking of MSG, cialis sales it is incomprehensible how they failed to show the Rangers post-game show immediately after Game 3. Cialis sales All we got was an abbreviated version before shuttling hockey out of the way for the New York Knicks pre-game show.

Cialis sales I understand that Cablevision and MSG see the Knicks as THE team; however, cialis sales did we need to see the Knicks pre-game show, cialis sales Game 1 of the Knicks-Celtics series, cialis sales and the Knicks post-game show on BOTH MSG and MSG+.

Cialis sales Why didn’t the network simply show the full Rangers post-game show live on MSG+ while showing the Knicks on MSG? I know there are some cable subscribers that do not get MSG+, cialis sales but it still makes no sense not to show it on MSG+ anyway. Cialis sales

Cialis sales Heck, cialis sales if Cablevision, cialis sales the Dolans and MSG were so adamant to show the Knicks on two channels (not to mention the fact the game was also on TNT with Marv Albert doing play-by-play), cialis sales then why not just show the post-game show on MSG2?

Cialis sales What purpose does it serve to have the Knicks on two channels?

Cialis sales How can Ranger fans expect the Metropolitan area newspapers and media outlets give their team any respect when the Rangers own network and corporate bosses will not show them any respect?

Buy pfizer viagra in canada The old sports adage states that a team is not in trouble into the playoffs until they lose a home game. Buy pfizer viagra in canada Well, buy pfizer viagra in canada that my best the case for some teams, buy pfizer viagra in canada but given the New York Rangers struggles at Madison Square Garden, buy pfizer viagra in canada the Blueshirts might be in for some trouble come Sunday afternoon – especially if they can’t do better than one goal in almost seven periods of hockey.

Buy pfizer viagra in canada In Game 1 it was a pair of Alexanders that did in the Rangers. Buy pfizer viagra in canada In Game 2, buy pfizer viagra in canada it was a fateful 117 seconds that spelled the end to the Rangers hope of stealing a game at the Verizon Center.

Buy pfizer viagra in canada I don’t know if it is reality or just a figment of my imagination, buy pfizer viagra in canada but it always seems that whenever the wheels come off the Rangers it happens in the second period. Buy pfizer viagra in canada It could be somewhat understandable given that the Rangers have the long way to make player changes – a crucial element to their game plan in order to get Marc Staal and Dan Girardi out against Alexander Ovechkin. Buy pfizer viagra in canada However, buy pfizer viagra in canada that was not the case in Game 2.

Buy pfizer viagra in canada I don’t know what Bruce Boudreau told his team during the first intermission, buy pfizer viagra in canada but it sure had the same effect as Knute Rockne’s “Win one for the Gipper” speech.

Buy pfizer viagra in canada The Rangers ratcheted up their physical play and forecheck and those improvements helped power a more productive offense with 13 shots. Buy pfizer viagra in canada The main problem is that they did not get nearly enough traffic in front of Michal Neuvirth.

Buy pfizer viagra in canada The second period started with the two teams each pulling a 180 degree turn in style and efficiency. Buy pfizer viagra in canada Everything the Rangers did right in the first period, buy pfizer viagra in canada they did wrong in the second period. Buy pfizer viagra in canada The Caps quick start rocked the Blueshirts back on their heels as Washington started to dictate the tempo.

Buy pfizer viagra in canada To me, buy pfizer viagra in canada the real sticking point is that the Rangers never managed to match Washington’s intensity level in the second period.

Buy pfizer viagra in canada During the third period, buy pfizer viagra in canada Sam Rosen and Joe Micheletti lamented the loss of Ryan Callahan by saying it was his type of game. Buy pfizer viagra in canada While it is apparent that Brandon Dubinsky looks lost without Cally, buy pfizer viagra in canada the Rangers problems go beyond just one player as the rest of the team has not been able to step up in his absence during these first two games.

Buy pfizer viagra in canada When the Capitals needed a goal to tie Game 1, buy pfizer viagra in canada their best player stepped up and found a way to knot the game. Buy pfizer viagra in canada Sadly, buy pfizer viagra in canada the Rangers best offensive player, buy pfizer viagra in canada Marian Gaborik, buy pfizer viagra in canada has had offensive chances but still has no goals in his last 11 games.

Buy pfizer viagra in canada Quite frankly, buy pfizer viagra in canada no one threw the Pittsburgh Penguins a pit party when they lost Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. Buy pfizer viagra in canada Instead, buy pfizer viagra in canada the Pens found a way to hold on to the fourth spot in the Eastern Conference and managed to find a way to win Game 1 against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Buy pfizer viagra in canada As the series comes north to the Garden, buy pfizer viagra in canada the Rangers have to start finding ways to win. Buy pfizer viagra in canada Of course, buy pfizer viagra in canada that is easier said than done when your offense has gone missing yet again.

Buy pfizer viagra in canada Micheletti made it a point to keep saying that Henrik Lundqvist was in Washington’s head. Buy pfizer viagra in canada That might be true, buy pfizer viagra in canada but it is becoming apparent that Neuvirth is playing mind games with the Rangers’ heads as well.

Buy pfizer viagra in canada You have to admit that the Washington Capitals are the team the New York Rangers want to be. Buy pfizer viagra in canada The Capitals’ mid-season turnaround transformed a run-and-gin team into one that concentrates on their defensive responsibilities and then capitalizes (pun intended) on their offensive chances. Buy pfizer viagra in canada In addition to having more firepower the Rangers, buy pfizer viagra in canada it is their ability to bury their chances that has made the difference in this series.

Buy pfizer viagra in canada While Jason Arnott is a veteran with 31 playoff goals, buy pfizer viagra in canada no one is ever going to mistake Jason Chimera for a sniper.

Buy pfizer viagra in canada Hmm, buy pfizer viagra in canada I am noticing a pattern here. Buy pfizer viagra in canada In Game 1 it was two Alexanders that did in the Rangers. Buy pfizer viagra in canada In Game 2, buy pfizer viagra in canada it was two Jasons. Buy pfizer viagra in canada I suppose it will be either a pair of Matts (Bradley and Hendricks) or, buy pfizer viagra in canada God forbid, buy pfizer viagra in canada a pair of Johns (Carlson and Erskine) that spell doom on Sunday.

Buy pfizer viagra in canada I am not sure what lineup changes, buy pfizer viagra in canada if any, buy pfizer viagra in canada Coach John Tortorella will make for Game 3. Buy pfizer viagra in canada He did not seem to enthusiastic with the idea of Mats Zuccarello seeing much ice time in the playoffs at this point.

Buy pfizer viagra in canada Torts expressed concern to Andrew Gross of NorthJersey.com as to “whether he can handle the size and the overall consistency of playoff hockey, buy pfizer viagra in canada I’m not sure.”

Buy pfizer viagra in canada However, buy pfizer viagra in canada given the Rangers inability to score, buy pfizer viagra in canada a later comment by the coach might leave a glimmer of hope for Zuccarello.

Buy pfizer viagra in canada “It’s still an open book for him as to where he sits as a National Hockey Leaguer. Buy pfizer viagra in canada He sees the ice. Buy pfizer viagra in canada He makes some plays that some players don’t see, buy pfizer viagra in canada” Tortorella admitted.

Buy pfizer viagra in canada While there will be some question as to what could be done with the forwards, buy pfizer viagra in canada there is one lineup change that definitely needs to be made. Buy pfizer viagra in canada Bryan McCabe is giving the Rangers nothing on offense – especially on the power play – and has become more of a liability on defense. Buy pfizer viagra in canada It is time for former Capital Steve Eminger to see playing time and add a little grit on the blue line.

Buy pfizer viagra in canada The Rangers must approach Game 3 as a “must-win” game along the same lines as the final game of the season against the New Jersey Devils. Buy pfizer viagra in canada Perhaps the result of the first two games in general, buy pfizer viagra in canada and Game 2 specifically, buy pfizer viagra in canada might have been different if they entered the game thinking it was a “must-win” scenario.

Buy pfizer viagra in canada During Friday morning’s press conference, buy pfizer viagra in canada Tortorella offered up the following answer to a question from Larry Brooks of the NY Post in reference to whether the Rangers had their backs against the wall.

Buy pfizer viagra in canada “I never think our backs are against the wall, buy pfizer viagra in canada” was the coach’s response. Buy pfizer viagra in canada According to a transcript from Newsday’s Steve Zipay, buy pfizer viagra in canada Brooks and Tortorella engaged in yet another round in their ongoing verbal jousting.
Kind of makes you wonder how the post game press conference will turn out.

Viagra money order Whether you are a fan of hockey or night, viagra money order there is one universal truth that sports fans have to agree upon – there is nothing more exciting than overtime playoff hockey. Viagra money order That is, viagra money order unless your team is involved. Viagra money order In that case, viagra money order overtime is torture – especially if your team loses.

Viagra money order Once again Team Adversity (aka the New York Rangers) will get another chance on Friday to show if they can bounce back off the campus. Viagra money order While the Capitals have the momentum coming out of Game 1, viagra money order the old adage is that momentum only lasts as long as the next day’s pitcher – or in this case – the next day’s game.

Viagra money order “I think playoff series are surges, viagra money order going against you, viagra money order going with you, viagra money order” Coach John Tortorella told Steve Zipay of Newsday before the game. Viagra money order “You get a win under your belt, viagra money order you have a surge going with you. Viagra money order It changes quickly. Viagra money order That’s very important in succeeding in these types of series, viagra money order how you handle surges. Viagra money order There’s a lot of different things come out of a win and a loss.”

Viagra money order If the Rangers are going to pull even in this series, viagra money order they are going to have to adjust their game plan a bit. Viagra money order The Blueshirts can’t afford to play most of the game in their zone like they did in Game 1. Viagra money order They are going to have to find a way to get a meaningful forecheck going against the Capitals.

Viagra money order In addition, viagra money order the Rangers need to get more traffic in front of Michal Neuvirth. Viagra money order It was no coincidence that Brian Boyle was lurking in front of Neuvirth when Matt Gilroy opened the scoring.

Viagra money order More importantly, viagra money order they have to correct the ice balance problem that plagued them on both Capitals goals. Viagra money order On the first goal, viagra money order and we will discuss that a little later, viagra money order Marc Staal crossed over from his left d-man position and collided with Daniel Girardi. Viagra money order As a result, viagra money order the Rangers were left scrambling around in their own end as they allowed Alexander Ovechkin to bang home the rebound. Viagra money order Looking back, viagra money order the ice balance problems started on the Rangers passive forecheck where they had two players in deep around the crease. Viagra money order The two players in deep like that left a lot of room through the middle of the ice and set the stage for the Staal crossover.

Viagra money order On the game-winning goal, viagra money order the Rangers got caught out of position as the forwards flew out of the zone as Chris Drury (who would eventually fly the zone as well) and Staal both were unable to clear the puck.

Viagra money order The most interesting point of the game was the way both teams opened up their play at the start of overtime after playing close to the vest for 60 minutes. Viagra money order It is not very often that teams turn to a pond hockey style of play in overtime. Viagra money order It is something to file away for future use in this series.

Viagra money order The Capitals transformation into a defensive team is remarkable considering it was done on the fly during the season. Viagra money order However, viagra money order when you take a look at their team, viagra money order it goes against the nature of their team. Viagra money order The start of overtime shows that Washington still has that tendency to play wide open – something that still might come back to bite them in the end before the final script is written on this series.

Viagra money order The point to consider from last night was the Caps defense that good or were the Rangers more content to sit back and counterpunch? No one expected the Rangers to be the Flying Frenchmen, viagra money order but they were far too passive in their approach to the game.

Viagra money order I guess now is a good time to address the 800-pound gorilla in the rink – the Capitals first goal. Viagra money order Much to their credit, viagra money order the Rangers were pretty much playing down the call, viagra money order or rather, viagra money order non-call from referee Brian Pochmara.

Viagra money order “We’re not going to whine about it, viagra money order” Tortorella offered after the game.

Viagra money order The Rangers really have no choice because the last thing they need to is start criticizing official or the war room in Toronto. Viagra money order However, viagra money order it is not going stop fans from wondering what happened.

Viagra money order To me, viagra money order it looked like Pochmara was ready to blow the whistle before the puck went in the net. Viagra money order Pochmara seems to be undecided as to whether or not to blow his whistle. Viagra money order Then amid the Capitals celebration, viagra money order Pochmara does not point to the net. Viagra money order Instead, viagra money order he throws his hands up in the air signifying that the play has been whistled dead, viagra money order as opposed to a goal being scored. Viagra money order It is one of those calls that change from referee to referee – appoint not lost on Henrik Lundqvist.

Viagra money order “It’s underneath me and I think the whistle’s going to come, viagra money order so I move, viagra money order and it just crossed the line, viagra money order” The King explained to Zipay. Viagra money order “Sometimes they’re real fast on blowing the whistle, viagra money order but it is what it is. Viagra money order I’m kind of stuck in that position, viagra money order you hope for a whistle or someone to come and clear the puck . Viagra money order . Viagra money order . Viagra money order I felt like we were playing really well right after our goal.”

Viagra money order Interestingly enough, viagra money order Pochmara’s refereeing partner Dan O’Halloran factored into a similar play three years ago – call that also went against the Blueshirts.

Viagra money order In Game 2 against Pittsburgh, viagra money order the Rangers were trailing the Penguins 1-0 when Martin Straka’s apparent game-tying goal was waived off on a quick whistle courtesy of O’Halloran.

Viagra money order While I am on a whining rant about the officials, viagra money order I do give them credit that O’Halloran and Pochmara let the two teams play and let them get some of their frustration out during post-whistle scrums. Viagra money order However, viagra money order I do have one bone to pick with one call and one non-call.

Viagra money order It was bizarre that Mats Zuccarello gets called for a boarding penalty, viagra money order especially when you consider that no Capital player ever hit the board. Viagra money order However, viagra money order the referees somehow missed John Erskine’s boarding/head shot against Erik Christensen moments earlier.

Viagra money order With both teams focusing on their defensive games, viagra money order this series is the classic case of the unstoppable force versus the immovable object. Viagra money order The winner will be the team that blinks last. Viagra money order In Game 1, viagra money order the Rangers were the team that blinked first.

Cialis iop The hardest game to win in sports is the deciding game in any playoff series. Cialis iop Just ask the 2008/2009 New York Rangers who held a commanding three-games-to-one lead against Washington before watching the Capitals rise up off the ice to win Game 7.

Cialis iop This year marks the sixth time the Rangers and Capitals have faced off in the playoffs – with the Capitals holding a three series to two lead. Cialis iop The first playoff showdown was in the Patrick Division Finals (aka Second Round) in 1986 as the Blueshirts overcame an 8-1 loss in Game 2 to win the series in six games.

Cialis iop I bring up the 1985/1986 Rangers because this year’s team is very similar to that one that beat Washington. Cialis iop The 1986 team did not feature a big scorer during the regular season as rookie Mike Ridley paced the team with 65 points (22 goals – which was second to Bob Brooke’s 24).

Cialis iop That team featured six players who scored 20 or more goals – including veteran Pierre LaRouche who has 20 in 18 games after being loaned out to the AHL’s Hershey Bears for 32 games as Coach Ted Sator favored a defensive style.

Cialis iop The Rangers, cialis iop who would eventually lose the Eastern Conference Finals to Patrick Roy and the Montreal Canadiens in five games, cialis iop were lead by nine players who were 24 or younger with three years or less NHL experience: Mike Allison, cialis iop Brooke, cialis iop Jan Erixon, cialis iop Kelly Miller, cialis iop James Patrick, cialis iop Ridley, cialis iop Tomas Sandstrom and John Vanbiesbrouck.

Cialis iop Some fans believe the Rangers are playing with “house money” given that they were thisclose away from missing the playoffs. Cialis iop Fortunately, cialis iop the Rangers are not going to take this stance.

Cialis iop “I expect to win, cialis iop and that’s the expectation of our team, cialis iop” Brandon Prust commented to Larry Brooks of the NY Post. Cialis iop “I believe we have the character, cialis iop confidence and work ethic throughout our lineup to take care of our business in this series against a very good team. Cialis iop

Cialis iop “To everybody else we’re underdogs, cialis iop but we go in there thinking we can handle any team in the NHL, cialis iop because we’ve proved that during the season.”

Cialis iop The Rangers-Capitals series shapes up as a chance for redemption. Cialis iop The Rangers, cialis iop as a team, cialis iop have a chance to redeem themselves for allowing a three-games-to-one series lead slip through their fingers when they lost to the Capitals in 2009. Cialis iop

Cialis iop Veterans Chris Drury and Marian Gaborik also have a chance to redeem themselves on a personal level. Cialis iop

Cialis iop For Drury, cialis iop the 2010/2011 season was a wash due to a myriad of injuries, cialis iop but his inspiration paid off in his first game back when he scored to tie up the Devils game. Cialis iop While Drury can’t replace Ryan Callahan’s offense or the bulldog-like attitude he brings, cialis iop the captain does bring the ability to play defense/kill penalties and, cialis iop most importantly, cialis iop adds another faceoff option to go along with Brandon Dubinsky.

Cialis iop Gaborik has also labored with injuries this season, cialis iop and it is possible that he is not completely recovered from his shoulder, cialis iop groin and concussion injuries that cost him 20 games this season. Cialis iop However, cialis iop since NHL teams treat injuries like the plans for the Normandy invasion, cialis iop we may never know “the rest of the story” as Paul Harvey would say. Cialis iop

Cialis iop While Gaborik’s offense has taken a hit as the Rangers have had to grind out more games, cialis iop his ability to get off quick shots must be taken advantage of – in other words – Gaborik has to think and look shot every time his the offensive zone. Cialis iop If he does, cialis iop he could pull a “LaRouche” who scored 8 goals and 9 assists in 16 playoff games.

Cialis iop Everyone is pretty much in agreement as to what the Rangers have to do to win this series. Cialis iop It is a given that that Henrik Lundqvist (11-6-2 versus Washingon) has to play like The King in order for the offensively-challenged Rangers to win. Cialis iop Given their struggles offensively, cialis iop the Blueshirts must win the battle of the special teams. Cialis iop Keeping Alexander Ovechkin off the core sheet (only two assists in the four regular season games) is also a must.

Cialis iop The Rangers won the season series from the Capitals winning three of four (including one in a shootout). Cialis iop Captain Chris Drury realizes that the playoffs are an entirely different story than the regular season.

Cialis iop “I’ve been on teams that have done well in the series and lost in the playoffs, cialis iop and vice versa, cialis iop” Drury related to reporters on a conference call. Cialis iop “To me, cialis iop it’s a whole new season and something we can learn from, cialis iop having played against them and had success in the year. Cialis iop Ultimately, cialis iop it is a totally different season, cialis iop different animal, cialis iop and the last few weeks we know they’ve done different things to have success. Cialis iop We’re going to have to be ready, cialis iop no matter what happened in the regular season.”

Cialis iop However, cialis iop the games most people remember are the 7-0 shellacking the Rangers put on Washington on December 12 and the 6-0 dismantling of the Capitals in Washington on February 25. Cialis iop Both of those games will go a long way in determining the winner of this series.

Cialis iop Following the December loss, cialis iop the Capitals realized that they had to address their problems in the defensive zone. Cialis iop As a result, cialis iop Coach Bruce Boudreau changed the team’s focus from its trademark offensive nature to one that centered on keeping the puck out of the net – a most daunting in-season task.

Cialis iop “It was a dramatic change, cialis iop” Capitals GM McPhee told Barry Svrluga of The Washington Post. Cialis iop “And changing systems in the middle of the season is dangerous, cialis iop because if it doesn’t work, cialis iop you have players who are confused. Cialis iop Your system of play has to become ingrained. Cialis iop It has to become second nature. Cialis iop You can’t go on the ice thinking about a system because then the game’s going to be going by you.”

Cialis iop The changed seemed to work in the interim as the Capitals pulled out of a nosedive and posted a 6-1-3 record in their next 10 games.

Cialis iop The February loss also had a profound effect on Washington. Cialis iop It was the last game that Mike Green played after suffering a concussion on a hit from Derek Stepan. Cialis iop Green returns to the Caps lineup for the first time in the series opener.

Cialis iop That loss also forced GM McPhee to start looking for help for his team as he reeled in Jason Arnott and Dennis Wideman before the NHL trade deadline. Cialis iop Wideman helped fill in for Green and Tom Poti who has been out of the lineup since late January with a lower body injury. Cialis iop Wideman, cialis iop who had 10 goals on the year (9PPG) is out of the lineup and is listed as week-to-week due to a leg hematoma and compartment syndrome.

Cialis iop That 6-0 loss is also significant because Michal Neuvirth, cialis iop who is making the Game 1 start, cialis iop was in goal for that game. Cialis iop To be fair, cialis iop he was in goal for Washington’s lone win a 5-3 victory on November 9 that is remembered for being the game when Derek Boogaard scored his first goal in 234 games.

Cialis iop In the end, cialis iop that 6-0 loss was the springboard for the furious rush Washington put on to close the season as they went 16-2-1 in their final 19 games.

Cialis iop Inevitably, cialis iop this series is going to come down to how well the Rangers execute their game plan and the team remembering, cialis iop with apologies to Herb Brooks, cialis iop that they are not talented enough to win on talent alone. Cialis iop The Rangers must live up to their Larry Brooks nickname of “Black-and-Blueshirts”. Cialis iop When the Rangers play their game to perfection, cialis iop they are a hard team to beat. Cialis iop Their 21-16-3 record against playoff teams and their gritty win against Philadelphia and Boston in back-to-back games show what the team can accomplish. Cialis iop However, cialis iop when they are off their game, cialis iop then you are faced with clunkers like the Senators, cialis iop Islanders and Thrashers games.

Cialis iop One telling stat is both teams ability to put games away when they hold the lead after two periods. Cialis iop The Rangers were 29 for 29 when entering the third period with a lead and the Capitals were 29-0-3. Cialis iop One of those shootout losses was to the Rangers with Martin Biron in goal.

Cialis iop Granted the Rangers task would be a little bit easier if Callahan were healthy and in the lineup, cialis iop but you might as well wish for a return of a vintage Mark Messier and Brian Leetch as well. Cialis iop However, cialis iop the one thing we have learned about this Rangers team is that they have a remarkable capacity to stare adversity in it face and use it as a rallying point – which is a great asset come the playoffs when teams seem to face adversity during every shift.

Cialis iop It is the Rangers ability to confront and overcome adversity that should lead them to a hard-fought win in seven games. Cialis iop The Blueshirts will get a huge break with a couple of extra days off during the series in which they can rest the bumps and bruises that are sure to come.
