Avery wasnt one of the 'three stars' and two Thrashers were along with Lundqvist. What a joke of an organization...

Well Hedberg deserved the top star, because if it weren't for him the Thrashers wouldn't have been in the game at all. He made some exceptional saves all game long. Kovalchuk as the third star is pretty pathetic though. Not that it really matters in the scheme of things, but Avery was deserving as well as Tyutin who quietly has 4 assists in the series.

Overall, I really like what I see. Lundqvist has been fantastic, the Rangers' D has really limited scoring chances (0 turnovers in the first 2 periods) and the PK has been very effective. The PP still remains a bit of a concern and they continue to be outplayed physically. I read somewhere that their gameplan was to absorb the hits to keep the action going, hoping that the Thrashers overcommit which could lead to odd man rushes. I think it worked to a degree in the first game, but I really feel that they need to take the body more and hit back. I hate seeing my team getting tossed around, especially when guys like Kovalchuk and Sutton were clearly running guys late in the game. Colton Orr hasn't contributed much of anything and it would be a mistake on Renney's part to scratch Hollweg for a third straight game. But other than that, it's hard to complain right now.

The attending media determine the 3 stars of the game...it has nothing to do with either organization that is playing.

You are talking the atlanta media. They support their teams down there especially a team fro ma sport that they probably know very little about.

Game three will be wild. If this was 15 yrs ago you know there would be a bench clearing brawl.

I'm guessing Hollweg wont be a healthy scratch again...

Nice that the Rangers are the only eastern team up 2-0. They need to be smart, keep everyone healthy, unsuspended :? , and concentrate on finishing off this team while all the other series go 6 or 7 games.

A sweep now could give them a leg up for the rest of the playoffs.

More like 25-30 years. Bench clearing brawls were pretty much done in the ealry 90's. Especially for games like yesterday's. Took a bit more of a hit on someone to clear the benches.

Now in the 70's all it took was crossing the center line during warm-ups.

Not true. While the bench clearing brawl started to die out in the '90's, it wasn't until the NHL put extremely stiff fines and suspensions for the first guy coming off the bench that stopped the BCBs.

This is also more than a hit on someone. Atla is trying to prove a point in the series. They have come out and tried to mix it up, bully and instigate. If the Rangers get a big lead look for it to get very ugly.

Not the attending media, but the local attending media determine the 3 stars. And in all fairness, I think they realized that the fans might have rioted if Avery was given the first star like he should have been...
