    We will be OK. We have regrouped all season long after a tough loss.

    Yeah, some of the "suggestions" are pretty entertaining, considering we're still up 2-1 in the series. I'm a big Neil fan, but I think he's played one game in two months, so I question exactly how effective he would be. Boro could give us a bit more physicality, but I don't think he'll be ready to come back in game 4.

    No reason to panic...Ottawa was flat, Anderson wasn't good, and the Rangers were great....it was the perfect storm.

    I was hoping for a split in NY. This was to be expected. Now they just have to get it together for the next one.

    Exactly. People just overreact after a loss...it happened in the Boston series too when we lost game 5. It's pretty rare to sweep a series, and I'd think we'd all agree that we're pretty evenly matched with the Rangers.

    Rebounding after a tough loss and all is fine. What is troubling is that Andy let in 5 the game before and, while you can't blame the loss on him, and it's true that he kept it close early on, it's also correct to say that this wasn't exactly a good bounce back game for him, which we all expected.

    Similarly for the team as a while, G2 wasn't good at all, aside from Pageau's heroics. So that's two poor games in a row for both the goalie and the team. And to top it all off they were all over Karlsson with early/late hits, stray elbows, sticks, everything -- and he was a -3 on the game, so I'm guessing this abuse will continue.

    When the score was 4-0 and then 4-1 and they were getting nowhere in the 3rd, why didn't someone do a little tap-dance on Zuccarello for elbowing Karlsson in the head? Why didn't someone wipe that smile off Zibanejad's face? He's their friend? He slashed Karlsson every chance he had. No friends here.

    No, we don't need Neil. Nor Kelly or Boro -- too slow. But if all we get is Pyatt in for Wingles (who actually played well, except for the lack of offense) and Wideman in for Harpur is that going to be enough? I doubt it. As much as I'd like to see White come in for his size/speed if we don't get another 12-15 skaters to give a damn it won't be enough.

    Wideman would come in for Claesson if he is.

    Harpur came in when Wideman came out. They are both righties. Also Harpur struggled last night.

    Not true. Claesson came in when Wideman came out.

    I think in an ideal world, Guy would like to put the Boro/Wideman pairing back in for Claesson/Harpur, but I doubt Boro is ready to go.

    Any word on the Smith or Bobby injuries?

    They think Ryan will be fine, not so good on Smith and definitely not Boro yet.
