I'd like to ask AV a question or two. First, why would you break up the best line in the last three games or so in miller- hags- pouliot.  Scratch Miller instead of Boyle. Then proceed to break up the only line in the game that was doing anything at that point in pouliot-brassard-callahan. Which promptly led to the penguins second goal. Then of coarse puts them back together later. Stepan is pathetic, just thought I'd mention that as well. I'm really liking AV's in-game decisions less and less. Lets bring up a kid or two and try to spark this team. They play for the most part with no guts, grit or an edge of any kind. But of coarse with Dorsett being hurt I expect to see Asham or Powe. Useless call up.... again!

...well at least Pyatt can't play in his place.  Shame they can't get all the forwards healthy ever.

It's utterly disgusting with Sidney Crosby and jumped the best defenseman and start a fight and no Rangers will turn around and jump them even though they're losing 5 to 2 this team has no balls

The steam is soft,they let anyone just beat up on players. What gets emotions going is when players stand up for each other and then they get fired up. This team plays like women's hockey and women's hockey players are tuffer then the rangers capital P discussing
