A post-Memorial Day edition … which means it’s a day later than normal!
“Kiss my a– if you want to run something different,” said Torts. “It’s not about blaming that guy, and I don’t want anyone to pile on.”
“We’ll meet (Wednesday), practice, and we’re going to try to win a game,” Tortorella said. “That’s all you can do. Down 3-0, it’s a very tough situation, but I have full faith in our athletes. They will be ready to play another game.”
The Boston Bruins enter Madison Square Garden with a 2-0 series lead over the New York Rangers, but know that can change in a New York minute.
Facing an 0-2 hole against the Bruins, one key factor for the Rangers is the play — and health — of goalie Henrik Lundqvist.
The Blueshirts aren’t about to go down against the Bruins without a fight as their series heads to Madison Square Garden.
Henrik Lundqvist is the best goalie in the world. If he doesn’t start playing like it, though, this series is over.
What to expect when the Bruins and Rangers take the ice for their Eastern Conference semifinal matchup.
The NHL playoffs are off to a heart-pounding start with a record 17 games going to overtime in the first round.
There is one key explanation, above all others, for why the Rangers are heading to the Eastern Conference semifinals. “Henrik Lundqvist,” Capitals forward Troy Brouwer said. “Plain and simple.”
Home-ice advantage has held up for six games between Washington and New York. The Rangers hope to snap the trend in Monday’s do-or-die series finale.
Nobody collapses in the postseason quite like the Capitals. 1985. 1987. 1992. 1995. 1996. 2003. 2009. 2010. All series that Washington led either 2-0 or 3-1 — and went on to lose.
