Hold Your Head Up

Looking like he was about to cry in the post game interview, Ryan  McDonagh took the weight of the Rangers overtime loss all on his shoulders. Mac Truck put the puck over the glass allowing the Capitals the powerplay opportunity. As opposed to the Rangers, the Capitals have one of the the most lethal powerplays in the league. Law of averages they would finally score.

There is something positive to be taken from this game 2 loss to the Capitals this afternoon. The Rangers were the equal of the Caps 5 on 5.  The players did there best but unfortunately their failure to score is not on the players. It’s on the coaching staff.

It’s on John Tortorella and Mike Sullivan for throwing out Brad Richards on the point on the first unit. It’s on John Tortorella for the mind boggling line juggling. It’s on John Tortorella for not putting Stepan with Nash. It’s on John Tortorella for burying Chris Kreider. Tortorella should be the one choking back the tears, not Ryan McDonagh.

The Craps have to win four games. The Rangers can come home and win the next two. Nothing is over yet. I wouldn’t be so quick to write these Rangers off. They were the equal of the Craps in almost every phase of the game today save for the powerplay. The Rangers may still prevail in spite of Tortorella and Sullivan.

Hold Your Head Up – Argent

And if it’s bad
Don’t let it get you down, you can take it
And if it hurts
Don’t let them see you cry, you can take it

Hold your head up, hold your head up
Hold your head up, hold your head high

And if they stare
Just let them burn their eyes on you moving
And if they shout
Don’t let them change a thing what you’re doing

Hold your head up, hold your head up
Hold your head up, hold your head high
