Rangers 3 Canucks 1: I Think I'm Numb

I think this sums up how I feel about the Canucks:

"DNumb" By Nirvana.


I'm not like them
But I can pretend
The sun is gone
But I have a light
The day is done
But I'm having fun
I think I'm dnumb
Or maybe just happy

Think I'm just happy [x3]

My heart is broke
But I have some glue
Help me inhale
And mend it with you
We'll float around
And hang out on clouds
Then we'll come down
And have a hangover

Have a hangover [x3]

Skin the sun
Fall asleep
Wish away
The soul is cheap
Lesson learned
Wish me luck
Soothe the burn
Wake me up

I'm not like them
But I can pretend
The sun is gone
But I have a light
My day is done
But I'm having fun
I think I'm dnumb
Maybe just happy

Think I'm just happy [x3]

I think I'm dnumb [x12]

Oh right, there was a game on tonight. How to sum this one up....

PREGAME:

FIRST PERIOD

Kesler!

Lundqvist!

Kesler!

Lundqvist!

Carcillo scores! 1-0 Rangers. Hey ref, Eddie Lack had that puck covered. Next time blow the f*cking whistle!

Kesler!

Lundqvist!

Higgins!

Lundqvist!

Martin St. Louis beats Tom Sestito in a battle for the puck along the boards. Tommy trips Marty. Idiot!

Oh no! Edler's stick breaks blocking a shot! "Hey Kes! Give me your stick!" Bing bang Benoit Pouliot scores! It's a power play goal! 2-0 Rangers.

Oh my god! Zack Kassian is broken in half! Stop the damned match!

SECOND PERIOD

More Kesler!

Lundqvist!

Kasssquatch sighting.

Kesler scores! Nice pass by Daniel Sedin there. Kesler points at Dank after scoring, then shoves Dominic Moore aside. Love it. 2-1! I smell a comeback, but then again, the only player going tonight is Kesler.

Pouliot!

Lack!

Pouliot!

Lack!

THIRD PERIOD

More Kesler!

Lundqvist!

Woo! FINALLY A POWERPLAY!

Huh, way to piss that power play away with shitty execution (plus 3 blocks by Dan Girardi, I think)

Oh wait! Another power play! Surely we can tie it up now! Look out Phoenix! We're coming through the back door, bitches!

Sweet mother of pearl! It's a 2 on 1 for the Rangers shorthanded and Alex Edler is the only guy back to face Rick Nash and St. Louis! What's the worst that could happen? 3-1 Rangers. St. Louis' first goal as a Ranger. We love giving out the prizes don't we? Right Wayne Gretzky?

A bit more Kesler... I think he's trying to impress the Rangers brass.

Shawn Matthias!

Lundqvist!

Shawn Matthias!

Lundqvist!

Oooo...Burrows appears to have wrecked Ryan McDonagh's shoulder....so much for the buddy-buddy with Alain Vigneault. Burrows tossed.

Here's the play:

Game over!

The Canucks had 35 shots? What? As I'm sure you have noticed in a multitude of Canucks games this season: that was the quietest 35 shots I've ever seen!

The Rangers blocked shots like they were playing for Tortorella. How ironic. Or was it?

"We should have won this game, but it doesn't matter right now. We've been on the wrong side of these games throughout the season and it's frustrating. It's not a good-looking power play and throughout the season it hasn't won us a lot of games and that's been a big problem."

Thanks for that insight, Dank. And YOU have been a big part of the reason it sucks.

BOXSCORE
