First off, I did watch the Canada VS Norway game, but it really wasn’t worth talking about. Canada outplayed a far inferior team. Norway tried hard, but just did not have the skill to match up with the far more talented Canadian club.

Getting back to the game at hand, the Rangers, once again, came out flat against a vastly inferior team. Granted, on paper the Devils do look good, but let’s face it, their record is awful, and their goaltending has been putrid. Brodeur made some great saves tonight, but he also gave up a weak goal which ended up being the difference in the game (plus an empty netter). It’s tough to single anyone out tonight, the entire team just looked kinda flat. Unable to deal with the Devils pressure game, and unable to get the puck cleanly out of their zone for long stretches. The 3rd period was much better as the Rangers played lock down defense, but it’s tough to argue with such a huge shot differential. Henrik had to make several saves at point blank range, and the Devils missed at least 3 wide open nets (Arnott twice, and Tedenby once). The Rangers had a few chances themselves where Brodeur was outstanding, but not enough to overshadow a fairly lackluster performance during the first 2 periods.

We were lucky to get out of the swamp with 2 points. I’ll take it, but if we play like this against the Bolts, they will run us out of the building.

That’s all, I’ve got nothing more to add.
