RAGE

I don’t think I’ve ever been more enraged after a professional sporting event than I am tonight. The Sabres just went down to the New York Rangers 2-1 in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, evening the series at two. Am I mad about the reviewed no-goal in the 3rd period? NO. I’m angered over the piece of s*!t effort the Sabres exhibited over the first two and a half periods. How in the world can these players rise through the ranks to the highest levels of professional hockey and JUST. NOT. GET. IT?

1) DUMP THE PUCK IN!
2) GET TRAFFIC IN FRONT OF THE NET.
3) SHOOT THE PUCK HIGHER THAN AN INCH OFF THE FREAKING ICE!

IT’S JUST THAT SIMPLE.

If the Sabres put forth an iota of sensible play in the first two periods, they probably win this game by two goals. Instead, they CONTINUE to get cutesy at the blue line and try to make a highlight-reel pass to a streaking trailer who’s defended by three opposing players. WHAT THE FREAK ARE YOU DOING?

The no-goal in the 3rd period is wholly irrelevant. Congratulations, Ranger fans, you got even for the calls that went against you in games 2 and 3.

Coach Lindy Ruff, this is on you. If you can’t get your team to shape the eff up and play like they have a shred of intelligence, what good are you? Look at those three simple tasks again:

1) DUMP THE PUCK IN!
2) GET TRAFFIC IN FRONT OF THE NET.
3) SHOOT THE PUCK HIGHER THAN AN INCH OFF THE FREAKING ICE!

That’s how you win in the playoffs. If you can’t get that fact through to your team after 50 minutes of hockey, then how good a coach are you really? WHAT THE EFF?! If these offensive pretty-boys can’t get the job done, put them in the press box and let Mair, Peters, Kaleta and Gaustad dictate play to the opponent in the corners. You at least know you’ll get sensible, reliable play out of those type of players.

I’M MAD AS HELL AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!
