Rangers vs. Senators Game 1 Round 2 Recap 4/27/2017

The Rangers lose game 1 against the Senators.

In the first period the Senators came out strong, as they had over 20 shots on Henrik. Although there were many opportunities for Ottawa to score, the first goal didn’t happen until the second when McDonagh put us on the boards on the power play. The game continued to be back and forth until the Senators were about to tie the game with a power play goal of their own. The senators were able to score a goal from a terrible angel to take the lead late in the 3rd. Despite a 6 on 4 in the end the Rangers couldn’t tie the game.

I don’t know what this team needs to do to realize it’s the playoffs. Sometimes they look effortless in certain situations. I’m not sure why the Rangers continue to look clueless on the power play. A lot of key guys have gone missing this postseason. Slacking off like that is not going to cut it. The only Ranger who doesn’t need to step it up is Henrik. He continues to be amazing. Henrik doesn’t deserve to lose a game like that. We need more effort then that boys, much more. Let’s wake up on Saturday!
