Just Forfeit


Just when you think they can’t possibly sink any lower, the skating dead men that are the Rangers do giving up three goals to the Coyotes in a humiliating first which saw the anti-Rangers skate circles around them. Of course, two more first goals for players named Mikkel Boedker and Sami Lepisto. Outshot 10-4 with odd-man rush after odd-man rush featuring Tinmen falling down. Outplayed severely. Hell. A pee wee team could muster a better effort.

I get that Henrik’s sick and Ocho Cinco’s in but come on. That was so sad. Shane Doan got it started surprising the poor backup thru the wickets off a turnover. Just 46 seconds later, Boedker finished off a great play by vet Robert Lang who record his 700th NHL point. Less than seven minutes later, Lepisto had all day to fire a pea by a screened Johnson for his first goal in 61 career games.

There just aren’t enough words for how uncompetitive they are right now. Everyone needs to go including the coach who’s lost the team. I want them to keep losing because that’s the only prayer we got of the miracle. While our sadsack bunch give nothing, you got the reverse in the Hurricanes who just went ahead of the best team in the league and now doubled their lead in 26 seconds with hardworking Matt Cullen scoring. Think we couldn’t use him now? Another great move by The Genius who believes we’re “still in it!!!!!!” In what?!?!?!?!?!! La La Land? And he probably also believes in the tooth fairy.

Watch Paul Maurice’s guys get back in the race while the Boo-shirts continue to embarrass the logo. Next time, Just Forfeit!
