Did someone say important?

FIFTEEN. That's the total number of shots the Rangers have gotten on Tuukka Rask through two periods in the "biggest game of the season versus Boston. In a game they trail 1-zip after turning immortal Andrew Ference into Gretzky, that included a four-minute power play that had Zdeno Chara off for an errant stick on countryman Marian Gaborik. How many shots do you think they got? Zero.

Embarrassing. Humiliating. Disgraceful. Lackluster. Passionless. Pointless. That's how to describe the joke Ranger hockey has become. Olli Jokinen. You were acquired to boost our offense. Not to demonstrate why you're on your fourth team in less than two years. That penalty was exactly what Pierre McGuire termed, "Selfish." At least Chris Higgins tried.

In a game where Henrik Lundqvist has given you every chance stoning Daniel Paille on a penalty shot, they've come up with nothing. Why is it going to change in the third? This is what they are.
