Don't judge the Rangers by the scores of their two losses to the Bruins.
According to coach John Tortorella, New York played much better in the Game 2 blowout than in its overtime defeat in the series opener.
The bottom line is this: for the second consecutive series, the Rangers have dug an 0-2 hole on the road and will need to rebound quickly at Madison Square Garden.
Game 3 is Tuesday night.
• Ducks defenseman Francois Beauchemin underwent reconstructive surgery on a ligament in his right knee. The Ducks announced that Beauchemin hopes to return in time for the start of next season.
• The Sabres re-signed fourth-line forward John Scott to a one-year contract. Listed at 6-foot-8 and 270 pounds, Scott had no points and 69 penalty minutes in 34 games last season.

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
