I’m going to be honest and tell everyone I missed the game yesterday. I usually work my life around Rangers games but sometimes I just can’t and this was one of those times. So I’m not commenting on the game itself, just my take from what I heard afterwards.
First of all, I have no idea if fans are blaming Ryan McDonagh but they shouldn’t be. I hate that penalty, I hate when any player takes it, and I’m one of the first to yell at them for it. That said, it’s not his fault the Rangers are no longer able to kill a penalty nor could score a goal (something that honestly isn’t his job) during the first 67 minutes of the game. And hearing how he was afterwards, sorry I’m not blaming him.
Nor am I blaming Tortorella.
