Game time

184

Alright Staal and all…..this ought to be an interesting evening don’t ya think? Could be chippier than the Boston game, perhaps? At any rate, I give you your clean canvas on which to paint your your wit and wisdom (see how much happier I am today than last night :) Let the game begin, and LGR!!!

P.S. After the dreaded jump, a present. Sorry, I just couldn’t help myself, but at least way you can avoid if you choose ;)

Hee hee!

  1. Laurel does not disappoint,and it was nice to read everyones stories. I’m sure someone will come on and complain about it, some people aren’t happy unless they are miserable and complaining aboot something

  2. Repost- Anyone know an online stream for the game (free, I can’t pay for the hockeystreams.com because I’m doing Center Ice during the year (i’d rather watch hockey on a big screen than my computer.) Why the NHL and Center Ice doesn’t include Pre-Season games I don’t know.

  3. holy crap, are same and joe wearing the same suit with different ties???? Looks kinda odd!

    Sally must be ecstatic, her nose picka is playing tonight!

  4. Good Evening Ladies and Gents! I was on a mini business trip….

    Well Written last couple of posts!!!

    IS everyone READY for tonight!?!?!?!?!

  5. Linda, Laurel- keep your pants on…
    CCCP is always in his bed in front of the computer, so his pants are never on anyway..

    Darn, too bad I don’t post during the game. I DVR and delay watching by 30-40 min. Too freaking nervous to wait for the intermission and commercials… I know… Does that qulalify for a crazy fan or what?

  6. wow i HOPE this is not the year of a repeat champion! i STILL can’t watch that punk being given the Cup!

  7. HAHAHAH poor bastard…. he’s a good kid and loves the game. World Class Elite… at he doesnt have hot dog lips like Cindy….

  8. i noticed that! I’ve seen him twice and they mentioned him once! too funny! And omg, i just saw 25 on the back of a jersey and thought of Karpotsev!!

    CCCP, you are a BLOG BEAST!!!!!!

    hey, not so fast linda. he wasnt firsting for awhile there and i thought he had lost his touch. i thought he shouldve been demoted. but hes back after that little slump.

  10. Chris –

    I’m lucky enough to live where I can get MSG but I use it all season long for western conference games because if there’s hockey on I’ll watch it

  11. Rozsival takes a stick penalty in every game he plays in. He’s too slow, gets beat, and takes a lazy stick penalty. Atrocious.

  12. ovechkins looks like he’s been using some pro-activ.

    mike, why would you damn olga with a hug from Sather?

  13. funny how last week they were all rippin dubi a new tushie, this week they are all kissin it!!! Where is SALLY?!

  14. that entire drama was totally unnecessary! he shouldn’t have held out, sather shouldnt have been a cheapass with his young kid, looking back, it made absolutely no sense.

  15. Thanks for the ATDHE suggestion. It was great, but it just went offline for me (like last game.) Anyone else having the same problem?

  16. THAT WAS PRETTY!…I EVEN GET THE CHILLS WHEN I HEAR THE GOAL SONG DURING THE PRESEASON

    LETS GO RANGERSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

  17. threats from the point that they never had…funny how R^2 figure into the ‘that they never had’…hmmmmmm

  18. are you kidding…lmao @ Brashear lunged and lost his balance. If he wasnt tryin out for the hand jive or dancing with the stars, he may have connected

  19. Lisin played that like. . . . well. . . . Lisin. THAT is why you get him for Korpi in a trade. Torts will have his ear for sure.

    Brash. WHY are u fighting Sugden? No win situation.

  20. Olga Folkyerself on

    That’s usually the way it goes Linda. When the Semin scores, the Johnson is already long gone…

  21. Olga Folkyerself on

    Gaborik gets #2.

    With the Washington penalty coming up, I missed an opportunity to say “Semin in the box”.

    I know it ‘s awful…

  22. You know as much as I would rather Drury be gone than Gomez. Its REFRESHING to see passing up the ice than his rush up the ice that goes either no where or a pass into other players skates. Great passing play before….

  23. now ORR, according to cheerleader Micheletti he lunged and lost his balance. I’m sure his #1 fan dave maloney will make some sorry excuse for it also!

  24. He fell on his lunge. I’m sure you’ll see him fight plenty of times and kick some ass during the season, Orr.

    Very impressed with Gabs so far

    Except for goalies, this award seems to be the kiss of death for ranger rookies. How did Norstrom win it twice?

  26. Lol, that just goes to show you the main difference between Orr and Brash*t, it’s BALLS !! Orr didn’t wait around for 5 minutes before lunging at his opponent to give him a great big hug for another 5 minutes, while rubbing the side of his head with his knuckles.

    He went in, he took a punch to throw a punch.

    Im sure Johnson would have appreciated his balls.

  27. Yeah Higgins hasnt shown much…dont really know what the big deal over him was…

    I rather see one of the kids in his place….

  28. HIGGINS can skate….he is a callahan type player-he is not going to be that flashy but he can shoot, he can score, he backchecks well, he is responsible and fairly intelligent out there on the ice….give him some time he will be a decent forward for us this year and then he will grow on u

  29. bad game by Lisin so far. he has made 2 defensive blunders already, one leading to a breakaway, and one leading to a goal

    and Brashear getting rightfully booed as he has done nothing but take bad penalties and do crap in his fight

  30. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Gaborick is in Da Houwseee !!!!… says Greg L. on

    Brashear , you go guy!!! I love Rangers hockey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

  31. Brash acquits himself.

    He shouldn’t be fighting this guy anyway. Sugden is a sick fighter that has no business in the league.

    That is probably closer to the way Brash intended his first fight to go.

  32. i’m pretty disgusted with the feed tonight also mike, but it’s still better than NHL.com, and atdhe and justintv just are not reliable.

  33. Olga Folkyerself on

    Torts goes over and gives Brashear a pat on the back, and feeds him a dog yummy…

    Good boy!

  34. I like how Torts has shed the players that werent going to stay up here quicker than Renney did, Renney was still playing 1/2-3/4 prospects at this time… Torts already has the team he wants playing how he wants this early

  35. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Atta boy , Donald !!!!… says Greg L. on

    He is our “Ovechkin” our “Crosby” our “Iginla” our “Datzuk”
    We have someone who will challenge Ov for the Rocket Richard trophy and right now….Gaborik is an eary favorite to win the Hart trophy!!!

    Gaborick ooozes talent , move over Malkin…we have a new beast in the east !!! Gabby is in da houwseeeeeeee!!!

  36. Haha, Crosby left tonights pre season game with a “groin injury”

    Hope this ruins his season, muahahaa.

    Go Rangers, nice finish to that game, and i still hate Brash*t and Kotalgeek. But i sure love Dubi Dubi Doooo !

    A Rangers win, along with my nightly fix of It’s Always Sunny In Philly”, im good to go !

  37. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Atta boy , Donald !!!!… says Greg L. on

    Kotalik does have a hard shot and he isn’t afaid to use it. With delzotto playing mon night quarterback and Gilroy playing forward…wow . Goals…can you say it…goals, and plenty of ‘em. Gaborik the great gets good goals ,gonna be groovey!!! Yo Mike , was coma-toasted to the tv . I’m here ‘ol buddy.

  38. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Atta boy , Donald !!!!… says Greg L. on

    Grachev should make the team but there is no room. Unless me made 4 lines of skilled stars and ditch Brashear,Voros,Boyle.

  39. anyone else thoroughly enjoy the fact that we have a team that didnt roll over and die (see renny hockey) when it became 2-2

  40. lmao Crazy!! so tonight we’ve determined that Crosby has hot dog lips, and a groin in Fleurys purse, and Bettmans Johnson…. ok i’ll leave That one alone..

  41. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Atta boy , Donald !!!!… says Greg L. on

    Awww shucks mikey , tanks ..I’m fine .Gaborik looks good ? Yeah , he does doen’t he . He may rival Jagr/Bure as the most highly skilled Ranger ever of all f**king time!!

  42. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Atta boy , Donald !!!!… says Greg L. on

    Whoaaa linda , cool it sister…I may have an ice pak fer ya right here.

  43. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Atta boy , Donald !!!!… says Greg L. on

    ummm , actually Gretzy wins there…guy has his jersey number retired league wide..how can anyone compete with that?

  44. glad you brought that up.I’m watching tampa up 2-0 on Edm, and Edm is not playing their usual wide open hockey. they are playing careful, hang back hockey. so Renney has already had a bad effect on them.

  45. caught a little bit of AGross twitter. nice to hear about that and also to see that the Professor got a goal. chalk one up to him and raise your glasses!

  46. Excellent game by all. Dubinsky inhis first game of the season looked pretty damn good.

    Who were all you losers who said Dubinsky didnt deserve anything over Q.O. because he hasn’t proven anything yet? HA HA Ha. You know who you are, it was only a week ago.

    I’ve played and watched hockey all of my life. That’s why I defended him.

    Gilroy impressed me tonight too. I’m pretty stoked for this season We just beat the stanley cup losers, lets go beat the winners on my bday.

    Excellent win.

  47. Does anybody know if PA, Rissmiller, and Arnason cleared waivers??

    With PA, Locke, and possibly Grachev on the top line, and Ambuhl, Byers, Arnason, Rissmiller, Sangs, Potter, Sauer, Heikkinen, and Chad Johnson … Hartford has a pretty good shot at the Calder Cup this year

  48. orr what’s with the blind hate of brashear and kotalik? brashear hurt betts, get over it…and kotalik makes our power play 10x more dangerous with his shot alone

    are they the cool people on the team to hate? how bout we try not hating on anyone for a season and see how things go…

  49. only real negative was anisimov’s demotion to the 4th line. he needs to be our 3rd line center, just gotta move prospal to the wing. and i think grachev is goin down to hartford for sure, but it will be good for him to get a lot of minutes on the 1st line. not sure where lisin will wind up once avery is back, maybe we can put drury on the 4th line and let lisin play on the top 9 (i wish!)

  50. Was at the game, everybody in the crowd stood up to see Gabby’s shortie. The man has the talent to slow the game down and it looked like it was a shootout goal

    My friend that I went with asked me the last time I remembered seeing a pay the price goal like Dubi to Higgins and I said “Jagr two years ago, Gmae
    4 vs the Pens”.

    You want to know why the Rangers will be better than the past 2 years, Gabby and Higgins goals say it all: skill and grit.
