2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs: SCH open thread May 24

The Rangers and Lightning are tied 2-2 in the Eastern Conference Final. Who will win Game 5 and be one win away from reaching the Stanley Cup Final? Here's your place to discuss all the action. The Tampa Bay Lightning will look to bounce back from a 5-1 loss in Game 4 when they visit the New York Rangers for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final on Sunday at Madison Square Garden. Henrik Lundqvist made 38 saves, and Rick Nash scored twice to lift the New York Rangers to win Friday. The loss for Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop was his first time he has allowed five goals in back-to-back...

New York Rangers Pregame: Rangers vs Lightning, Game 5

Miller on the first line, Zuke is day-to-day, and the Rangers are looking to put themselves within five wins of winning the Stanley Cup tonight at the Garden. It's Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final, and its just under two hours away. J.T. Miller is going to be with Derick Brassard and Rick Nash on the Rangers' first line because Alain Vigneault believes in him. "Every player has a role and a directive, something he's supposed to do," Vigneault said. "In J.T.'s case, he's a skilled, physical forward that is tough to handle in 1-on-1 situations.. The reason I moved him up is because I...

Nash, St. Louis goals relieve Rangers

By Tom Gulitti After Rick Nash finally awoke from his long playoff scoring nightmare Friday, you’d have thought the Rangers left wing would have enjoyed a night of pleasant dreams and peaceful sleep. “No, I didn’t, actually,” Nash said Saturday before the Blueshirts flew to New York following their 5-1 Game 4 win over Tampa Bay the previous evening. “It’s really strange. I was having great sleeps and then [Friday] night I couldn’t sleep. It was weird.” Maybe Nash being restless and unsatisfied after his two-goal, three-point night is a positive sign for the Rangers and bad...

Goals from Rick Nash, Martin St. Louis exactly what Rangers needed

Momentum usually is an illusion deep in the Stanley Cup playoffs, when every team is good and no one can predict the bounces of a vulcanized rubber moon pie.

Rangers vs. Lightning Recap: Rangers Blowout Lightning, Send Series Back to New York Tied

The New York Rangers blew out the Tampa Bay Lightning tonight by a score of 5-1 after a huge performance from their key players. It definitely wasn't pretty at times, but the New York Rangers found a way and defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 4 by a final score of 5-1. This win was also fairly new territory for the Rangers as their key players such as Rick Nash and Martin St. Louis stepped up massively tonight. After all of the hate Nash has taken, he put up two goals tonight, and suddenly everyone is signing a different tune about Nash. The funny thing is though, Nash hasn't changed...

Leonard: Henrik Lundqvist looks nothing like King in Game 3

Winning when Rick Nash disappears is difficult. Winning with Henrik Lundqvist playing the way he did in Game 3 is impossible.

Vigneault knows he needs more from Nash, others

The chorus demanding more goal production from Rangers left wing Rick Nash seems to grow every day. Nash, in the midst of a fourth disappointing playoff run in terms of goal production - and third now with the Rangers - has two goals in the Rangers’ 14 playoff games after setting a career-high with 42 in the regular season. That leaves Nash with seven goals in 55 career playoff games and six in 51 since joining the Rangers. NBC analyst Keith Jones, a former player, opined during the Game 2 telecast that Nash is “getting smaller as the playoffs are going along” and that “he’s not...

Nash hopes Game 6 goal starts a streak

Rick Nash scored a clutch, third-period goal in the Rangers’ 4-3 win in Sunday night’s Game 6 at the Verizon Center, sparking hope more goals might follow for the streaky left wing. Nash scored a career-high 42 goals in the regular season but has just two goals in 11 games this postseason, only five in 48 playoff games in his three seasons with the Rangers and just seven goals in 52 career postseason games. “Yeah, I hope it does,” Nash said. “I hope I can help the team any way I can. I’m supposed to score goals so hopefully they go in.” But Nash, who has provided strong...

There Are Bigger problems Than Rick Nash

Rick Nash is getting all the heat. Too bad he doesn't deserve it. You know the feeling when you're watching a horror movie and you know exactly what's going to happen? *Guy who happens to be alone in a creepy house hears a noise in the basement* That guy: You know, I traveled to this isolated location by myself, there's no cell reception and I'm about 10 miles from the next closest person who could possibly come help me. But that noise is really interesting so I should go check it out. You know what happens. He goes into the basement, finds something crazy and then he dies. It happens...
