Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
The Rangers have been shorthanded just 21 times in 10 playoff games, and just 17 times since the 7:00 mark of the second period of Game 1 in Washington. Twice in the last five matches — Game 6 against the Caps and Game 3 against the Bruins — they went entire games without being down a man.
That goes beyond discipline. That goes to a lack of initiating and responding and it goes to a fear of playing on the edge. And now they’re on a ledge.
Down 3-0, it almost impossible to see all the way up. But if the Rangers are going to go down, at least they don’t have to be so polite about it.
