Adam’s Thoughts:

  • You can’t have all the opportunities that the Rangers did on the PP and not score. It’s not a new story for the Rangers, but at such an important part of the season they need to find a way to pop one in on the PP.
  • The Rangers weren’t good enough through the first period, were better in the second and dominated the third, but it’s another night where the Rangers don’t put 60 minutes together. At this point in the season, with so much at stake, it’s hard to see why or how the Rangers didn’t bring that effort all night long.
  • There is nothing else that this team can do but get back to work and beat the Panthers on Thursday. They know they weren’t good enough tonight and they need to find out why, correct it, and be better on Thursday.
