Rangers at Hurricanes


OK. Better late than never. Here’s your game thread.

What you need to know: Redden is de-prucha’d and Gilroy is in the lineup. Up front, Boyle has the dreaded undisclosed injury — and we all know how painful that can be, depending on what undisclosed part of the body is undisclosed injured — so Ales Kotalik also gets de-prucha’d too. Lundqvist in goal.

This is a game the Rangers ought to be able to win. But if they don’t, don’t let it spoil your Winter Solstice. Or tomorrow’s Festivus Eve.

See youse during the game.

(ps, CR9, your boys are 2-0 since we went with this style header … you know, since you were keeping track of the other headers’ records).

  1. Has there been a Staal vs Staal game where they HAVEN’T shown the video of them playing as kids?

  2. Q: Will Redden hit the first Carolina players that comes near him on his first shift?

    A: Not a chance in hell.

  3. nyrguy, no, these broadcasters have an obsession with nhl players who had strong forearms as children

  4. Just so you know, Erik Cole Bobblehead Night is on Wednesday night NOT tonight. Sorry for any disappointment this might cause.

  5. I’d say- same plan: we are playing the low confidence team without #1 goalie- rubber at the net, make them take penalties. It’s not about Wade, btw, it’s all about points.

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?!?! Got me again!!

    No voros…SAD!!!

    My carped post form last thread:

    I agree wit jonny on redden.

    Quintal was atleast physical and I remember when he fought cairns when we played the fishies and then they were yelling at each other and you kinda felt one of them was going to go over the glass of the penalty box to get at the other one.

    Malakov was physical at times. I remember when he dropped horton I think from the panthers in a fight and after the game mess said, he didn’t fight a lot but that was because most guys didn’t want to fight him.

    schneider I liked when he was here, I remember him beating alfie from the sens and leaving him bloodied!

    Man we need some physical guys on the back end!!

    I hope they bury rozy in hartford or send him to omsk!!

    Time to finish work and watch the dvr’d rangers later!


  7. right there is everything that is wrong with Redden. little, non-physical Matt Cullen bodied him off the puck easily in the corner. bad

  8. Linda is a clutch baker on

    yo yo yo wassup boneheads. Redden is gonna have a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge game!

  9. good stickcheck by Rozsival on Ruutu in front of ournet to stop a chance for them, cant believe gaborik didnt jsut fire that as soon as he got it

  10. Canes are probably the worst team I’ve seen all year. they are slow and old. I mean, c’mon, Aaron Ward?? if Rangers can’t beat this slow, over the hill bunch, then demotions are justified.

  11. First period fight between Bryan McCabe and Mike Richards in the Panthers-Flyers game. Hmm, wonder what that could’ve been about…

  12. there is no such thing as an easy game in the NHL, this team is the worst in the league points wise but they are not pathetic, cam ward is a real solid goalie, staal, ruutu.. theyve had injuries.. quit the bitching about not scoring yet

  13. Where is everyone tonight?

    Orr, what strategy do you use on the PP…Overload, Shooting or Umbrella? Or do you just screw around until u score lol?

  14. This team has won three in a row I think they said. They are like the Rangers sometimes good sometimes not.

  15. Orr
    Agree with you on Dubinsky. Not sure why this guys always seems to find himself on the first line. He flat out doesn’t produce.

    I hope he proves me wrong.

  16. everyone gets all over rozsival if he loses the puck.. like he is the only guy that lost the puck that period, but never want him credit for his good plays, like the play on Ruutu and the nice intercept in the neutral zone… the last 2 weeks he has played much better hockey youre all just lookin for a scapegoat

  17. its been so often the hank let a goal in a in the same minute Gaborik score…its always gabby scorin those goals..

  18. Linda is a clutch baker on

    how long does redden get before he’s prucha’d again if he doesnt pick it up?

  19. Pretty entertaining game so far…I don’t think Carolina is playing that well so it’d be nice to see us get a regulation win tonight

  20. 69 posts through 2 periods…man what’s going on around here?? lol I guess it’s the holiday season

  21. I think Girardi has really picked up his game lately…although I think he loves the whole “lets kneel down right at the corner of the net while the guy is behind the net” play

  22. Redden almost put it in his own net, it looked like. He’s playing good enough to make Torts and Sather happy. They will find someone else to bench next game.

  23. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " I want a good team for x-mas!!! … says Greg L. on

    Yo Ranger , its Online team play , its when ya use yer character online in the community or Club . OTP is what its called. I have around 730 goals so far , sweet. Help having a legend card or yer superstar card.

    Gaborik scores again , gotta love it…even more is the amount of games he has played. He is my vote for the league MVP.

    Sather is in the house … he saw first hand what Redden is capable of doing…make huge blunders, Redden will be gone.

  24. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " I want a good team for x-mas!!! … says Greg L. on

    Oh Gaborik Oh Gaborik how lovely are your passes.

  25. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " I want a good team for x-mas!!! … says Greg L. on

    I usually do not post during the game…I need to watch the game and I hate missing goals. I may dart in the room and post Gabrik scoresssssssssssssssssss!!!! Or something like that but thats it!!

  26. Maloney is now looking at Olivia Munn and taking pictures of the computer screen with his blackberry, for the flight back. Ha. Good for you Dave, good for you!

  27. Same here Greg! But usually when I come back I have to scroll down alot to post alot and by the time I’m done intermission is over lol

  28. I am a Ranger fan through and through, but I have to say as much as I hate the Devils, I admire there Team concept,and discipline. I mean… there spanking the Pens right now.

  29. Why won’t Gabory lift the puck? This is the second time he’s tried sliding the puck on the ice.

  30. this is out of context with the game but this is hilarious. from THN.

    “Maybe we should pretend every team kicked our dog or something like that before the game – I’m an animal advocate by the way – but it seems like when teams show us up we come back the next time and play a good hard game and get the best of them.”

    – Blues right winger David Backes on getting motivated.

  31. It seems like the defense now is playing just like they did when we started 7-1. Coincidence? I think not!

  32. Ya know, looking at the schedule…it seems like it’s possible for us to win 18 in a row..

    Just kidding!!

    But the schedule is not all too difficult

  33. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " I want a good team for x-mas!!! … says Greg L. on

    We are the championssssss my friendss!!! ~~~~~~~~

  34. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " I want a good team for x-mas!!! … says Greg L. on

    People only wanna voice thier displeasures. Guys like…umm maybe I wont mention any names …but they hate when the Rangers win and love to come on here when they lose.


  35. How did I end up writing “Gabory”? i suppose that’s what happens when watching TV and posting in bed.

  36. Florida, Islanders…No reason we can’t make this a 5 game win streak…and I know it’s early, but the game against Florida is a big game considering where they sit in the standings together

  37. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " I want a good team for x-mas!!! … says Greg L. on

    See , Gaborik and Hank is ALL you need. A pumped up Prospal and a hard working Cally sure helps. Defense did fine …our team is on a RoLLL!!!!!!

    HIRE SATHER!!! Oh yeah , he already has the job , hahahaa.

  38. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " I want a good team for x-mas!!! … says Greg L. on

    Marc Staal Vs Eric Staal .

    The winner is MARC STAAL.

    Marc played a great game defensively and out scored his brother. Well done!!!

  39. Well nobody else is here so I guess I’ll go do some other stuff lol, watch I leave and everyone comes. I’ll be back later

  40. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " I want a good team for x-mas!!! … says Greg L. on

    HAHA , naw im ouuta heresky toosky!! Gotta go to a buddy palace.

    lmao! why is that so funny??? im cryin right now. i cant breathe. out of nowhere thsi guy p[ots 60th!!!!!!. owww my stomach hurts holy crap that was freakin retarted

  42. this is the funniest place on the internet. i piss my pants everytime i read this stuff. the personalities on here are awesome. we need to have a huge bonehead gathering soon.

  43. wow, even Chris Drury and Glen Sather can’t be bothered to make an appearance after a solid win.

  44. 909 u are correct. idk y but i saw a whole bunch of serious stuff bein posted and all of a sudden i see 60th!!!! stuff just craxcked me up for a minute. but yes im twisted bigtime

  45. mike, maybe you shouldnt wear pants. then you wouldnt have anything to piss in. then again, you’d have to rip up the carpets and sit on some bounty paper towels. bad images!!

  46. Hey Carp

    I think once this poll question runs its course, we try to get the first unanimous poll result! The question used would be:

    “Is Donald Brashear useless?”


  47. nyrguy- i cant be here when the games on cuz my internet is slow. so unless the games on versus i usually dont post during games until between p[eriods or after.

  48. i’m not drunk but i’m just as trippy man. i had some clutcherade earlier. its like 5 hour energy but clutchier

  49. Mike

    I’m the same way but not because of internet…I just am focused too much to take my eyes away from the tv lol I usually come back in intermission

  50. yea usually when i go take a leak or get a brew they score. almost all the time. i missed gabbys goal and staals. dubys goal i was just getting back from takin a wiz

  51. can’t u just see drury advertising clutcherade. “its good for that clutch factor that really gets you going” then he smiles and a tooth shines and u see the twinkle in his eye. then he says “ur holidays will never be ruined. 7.7 million dollar a year salary, sold separately”

  52. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " I want a good team for x-mas!!! … says Greg L. on

    ilb2001 , WAY TO GO MAN!!!! Ya took “first”…better late then never.

    Mike …don’t drink and drive…i mean drink N type …you could regret thing you sayyyyy.

    YO Ranger..well do community, my team is full of idiots , haha well not all of ’em…

  53. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " I want a good team for x-mas!!! … says Greg L. on

    My car is runnning…c-cold still out here. When I get back Mike will be PASSED OUT!!!

  54. mike, i thought u did it. Orr is potentially behind it but i think beer me and kaspar(MIA) are close 2nds. NYRGUY needs to share the love. 158!!!! MIKE

  55. i could use a clutch wrapup right about now. cant end a gamenight without it!!its tradition here now. anyway, happy holidays everyone. hope u all have a safe time and have fun. were not gonna let this 3 game winning streak brighten our holidays!!

  56. Greg, Mike doesnt pass out. he goes clutch, only to return with not as great a trip as expected. how trivial.

  57. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " I want a good team for x-mas!!! … says Greg L. on

    Mike , CCCP is usually the guy behind all that stuff. He quik on the draw. Him being “first” alot , proves that he is super quik.

  58. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " I want a good team for x-mas!!! … says Greg L. on

    Oh Taco Bell , ohh Taco Time ..how ymmmy are your burritoossss. I love mexicana amigos , dellilicious.

  59. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " I want a good team for x-mas!!! … says Greg L. on

  60. idk i thought it was cccp at firt, but then i really thought it was orr. it could be me idk. let me go to bed now. i got work tommorow. damn why?? oh wait, i took my vacation time!!! rock on!!!!!!!

  61. greg!! taco bell sound so damn good right now. i got the beer munchies man!! its all the way cross town and its probably closed but i wanna get some meximelts and double decker supremes!

  62. Speaking of Taco Bell…

    During that MLB All Star Game in SF when Ichiro hit that HR…behind the plate was a Taco Bell logo all game long and my friends and I were wasted on Soco (gross I know) and all we wanted was Taco Bell… Well we got there and it was closed…worst night of my life

  63. NYRguy, this is sacred ground reserved for the drunks and the just plain crazy’s, until someone brave enough, fast enough, clutch enough breaks up the party…. wheres drury at?

  64. i think im just gonna put on a good movie for falling asleep to. i think i’ll pop blade runner inthe dbd player. that movies weird and makes me dream of electric sheep

  65. Maybe all of the beer I had during the game is why I’m here…really weird how only the drunk have turned out tonight…

  66. Linda is a clutch baker on

    another victory, this must be our Christmas bonus for stickin with them!!! 3 in a row, and who cares if they were ugly, pretty, awesome or squeakers, a win is a win and the points still count!!!

    Grabby, i cracked up at the ’60th’ post also! Just about everyone here is freakin hilarious!

    ilb, have ya heard from Mako outside of the email he sent us last night?

  67. damn!!! guy!! that does suck. me n my friends used to get bell almost every night back in high school. its funny cuz it looks like straight up dog dung wrappedin a corn tortarlla

  68. NYRguy, not drunk. I’ve just been drinking the clutcherade lately, or the clutcheine shake. not sure which. too excited about the wins

  69. Linda is a clutch baker on


    Wonder if drury is doing some clutchsnowmobiling after the win, along with his clutchchapstick

  70. Linda, the clutch broke on his clutchmobile and his brakes are frozen. He had to whipout the clutchover card from the bank of clutchica and call a clutchi driver.

  71. Linda is a clutch baker on

    i was definitely on HS grabby, just doing a bunch of other things too…. whacha been drinkin my friend?????

  72. Linda is a clutch baker on

    lmao 909!! you guys are totally classic!

    When are the finalizing the rosters for the Olympics??

  73. Linda is a clutch baker on
