Ryan McDonagh was very unhappy with the penalties the Rangers took in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Tampa Bay capitalized on three of its six power-play opportunities, which was a big part of its 6-2 victory. "Our guys better figure it out quickly here and realize that stupid, selfish penalties are going to cost us against this team," McDonagh said. "They have too much skill, shooting ourselves in the foot from the very first few minutes, that is not going to give us a chance to win." The Lightning and Rangers are even at 1-1, although Tampa Bay now has the home ice advantage.
