It’s go time! (do I say that enough?)


So now the Rangers get the good teams — Boston, Dallas, Atlanta, Boston and the Devils in the next eight days. Uh-oh. Somebody better start scoring.

First move: Donald Brashear goes back in for Aaron Voros, who gets prucha’d. Why? Maybe there are 2.8 million reasons why. It makes less than zero sense to me, but what in holy Hell do I know?

Here is Tortorella’s morning skate press conference, in which he discusses the Brashear move.

He also said that Chad (Dos Nueve) Johnson is on his way back from Hartford, after playing two strong games over the weekend, but that Matt Zaba will be the backup tonight.

And it’s a Versus game. Oh, joy! Send in the clowns.

Here are tonight’s pregame notes. Do you guys find any use whatsoever for these, or am I just wasting time and energy linking to them?


In an unrelated item, a little while ago I linked you guys to our music blog, The Listening Room. Just thought some of you might want to vote in the latest poll there: best female singer. I think it’s a cool time to do it, because there are soooooo many unbelievable female vocalists in music today. So check it out here.

    909, sorry you missed the warning and disclaimer! I hope your eyes and brain have recovered!!!

    LETS GO RANGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    and Rick, did i finally take the lead in being carped, or is it ilb???

  4. I didn’t carp you because of the photo you linked, it was totally accidental. But … because you suggested I might have to take it down, it forced me to look at it, and I nearly went blind. I am going to have nightmares for a week.

    But our ladies probably enjoyed it.

  5. Linda, I think you got carp’d on purpose! here’s my repost answer:
    Linda, OMG!!! Hummana Hummana! If Carp takes that down, I’m putting it back up (and also bookmarking it!) Ha Orr! Hayden Panitierre that!

    You can never say it’s go time or what in holy hell too much.

    I may watch tonight with the sound turned off.

  6. I hope Chris Drury, Blueshirts pivot, uses his twig to score a marker, and that Blueliner Matt Gilroy dents twine in tonight’s tilt. And don’t take too many punitions, boys!

  7. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    Rick,I’d never think you’d carp me on purpose! I just hope sally and krisy see it lmao!!!

    ok, gotta get the mans netbook going so i can blog with the boneheads and watch my first Rangers game ON THE BIG TV IN HD!!!!!!!WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  8. to watch the game on the computer. i am also direct tv’d out of this game.

    the is free and last time it worked well give it a try…..

  9. I mentioned it in the last post, but ill say it again. Hayden Pannettiere has a great ass.

    These bikini pics of her are dynamite. How did that Russian retard boxer Klitsko or what ever the fugg his name is, get a how chick like this. He’s fugly.

    She just jumped back into my top ten. Oh baby.

    And go Rangers, i guess.

  10. I’m glad the poll is for female singers. I can’t watch a man sing a song. They start swaying and get all emotional. It’s embarrassing.

  11. Shenanigans!!!!!!!!!!!


    Hey if you guys wanna laugh… Linda & Rick I know you’ll appreciate this…

    A long time friend of my family Vinny Vella hosts a show called “Gangsters and Pranksters” Its on youtube for now but I think they are trying to get it on cable. Its absolutely hysterical

  12. I’ve been asking for days about Izzy. Chronic back issues are bad, I’ve heard.

    Linda, you might’ve taken over that dubious honor, except I never get “sorry” from Carp. Oh, well.

  13. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    lmao johnny! but some female singers are absolutely atrocious! if it wasnt for all the electronic ‘help’ their voices get, you’d think cats were being assaulted!

  14. this another 1-0 game? Seems like we play alot of those with Boston.

    Linda—thanks, didn’t read the warning either. Now I’ll be afraid to click on a link from anyone here.

    Carp-I personally don’t read them, but I can’t speak for anyone else.

    Orr-Yes she does…but nothing beats Jamie Pressley’s back in the day…man that was a killer…

  15. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    i am defintely checkin that out later Mako OMG I JUST REALIZED your name rhymes with..Jlo

  16. Orr…it’s only fair if you link Hayden’s pics…I mean, Linda got to link Grady Sizemore…

  17. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    SHEESH GUYS !!! do not click on that link, its for girls only!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i tried to protect all you he-men, but ya clicked on it anyway! READING COMPREHENSION!!!

    i love you guys!

  18. BENINATI!!!!!!!!! our evening is complete! and the chick with the hideously fake eyelashes! Versus,your home for hockey!!

    Mako,I’m just callin you sharkie from now on!

    oh carp keenan there too? what is the lovefest with this guy this year?

  19. i can finally post while watching!! the only reason i like versus. it beats the crap out of hockeystreams buffer and lag issues. gooo rangers!! dont let me down brashear!!

  20. sharkies, looks like they had a 5 year old do her makeup again. i’msure grabby aka mike, will be thinkin she’s hot lmao.

    laurel,did you ever look at the pics of my man?

  21. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Just win ,baby !!! " … says Greg L. on


  22. I’m gonna be confident here and say we win 3-2!!

    Goals by:


    WOW…Is that wishful thinking or what?

  23. MAKO, don’t even get me started on her. Perhaps she’s brilliant! But really, it’s not the Playboy channel….good grief. ORR, don’t you even repond!

  24. linda i did. he looks like he could pick u up and put u up on his back while he runs through the jungle! pounds on chest!! where my linda??!!


    LOLOLOL Linda either way … its all good with me =P

    LETS GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO RANGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



    OMG I know!! I know they put all that on to reduce the shine but WOW.

  27. I would actually rather listen to Kenny Albert and Dave Maloney and watch with the delay than listen to those boobs on Vs.

  28. Carp did anybody ask the coach what happened to getting Valliquette back on track ? Guess just another Talkerella BS story. Did Valli flip him the bird? And who cares if Brashrear stays in turtleland forever? He’s useless, just another Sather mistake along with Redden, Voros, Kotalik, and a long list of others.


    Its all go bro. Im 5 away =P

    I couldnt even move LQ into my starting line up. They activated him right at 7pm. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

  30. mike, the new chick on versus with the 8 pounds of makeup

    omg this TV is awesome!!! hockey in hd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

  31. Did the stupid Vs announcers just say this is the third season as Rangers coach for Torts? They even had the graphic say it. How dumb..


    How many scoring opportunities will Higgy get and NOT score on tonight???

  33. why does Brashear chase the outgoing D-man behind the net? Does he think he’s going to catch anyone in this league with two feet?


    And PUDDIN’ aka Huggy Bear aka Charmin aka FOSSIL was just left in the dust!!!

    Nice to hear the announcers mention the Brooks article!!!

  35. I think it’s more like bowling Beth. 10 of them in a row, and you get a perfect 300 score.

  36. Danizme –

    VS is getting REALLY ultra technical on that one…but knowing those idiots they probably don’t even realize it. This is kind of Tort’s third season. (if you get ultra technical) Last year, this year and the, like three games he coached after Muckler was fired.


    Nah Linda

    Captain “MACT” wont get a penalty. Dru – Dru a penalty!


    Important 5 on 3 Captain Lunesta is on the bench.

  39. this net book is firetruckin annoying!!!

    and imma smack cally for drurying his mouthguard!!!


    I miss Dave between the benches LOL

    OMG she’s annoying….




  43. Sloppy giveaways in their own end. This is the problem with the team, they got complacent with even the slightest bit of success and then get lazy.

  44. I’m not in the Bronx, but I’m getting horrible, garbled commentary and a woman with an orange face, so something’s wrong.

  45. 6’7″ 250 lbs and that is his shot??? he should puttin the puck thru rask into the net and thru the boards behind the net. a fulton reed shot!

  46. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    wow mike and sharkie with the mindmeld! impressive boys! its the italian in us!

  47. fairly decent period. Could have had a couple more PP goals but working against the #1 PK sure probably didn’t help

  48. Rob F –

    I also live in the bronx and I am just getting sound…the picture is frozen…I have cablevision…my sister in Rockland said it’s coming in fine there…

  49. ride that 1 goal wave to victory boys!! just need 5 more clutch blocks, 2-3 more clutch dump ins and 45 more saves from hank and we will bag our 20th win! and we get to hear coldplay!!


    LOLOL Linda

    Wonder what she looks like WITHOUT the pancake batter on her face? Nice eyes.

    MAKO is a sucker for blue yes =P

  51. Hey we’re winning!!!! It’s a start :)

    If they can actually win this game, that will be a good confidence booster.

  52. Someone must help her with her makeup, because something about her makes me think she doesn’t have a reflection.

  53. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    OH NO Rangers Pens jan 25 ooooooooon veeeeeeeeeeerrsus your home for hockey

  54. like nasty had said before, we couldve had 2 or 3 in the first with all that pp time. its just a 1 goal game. it will be a nailbiter all the way. with rask in net too. hes good this kid.

  55. Great…I have Rask and the guy I’m facing actually has Kotalik lol. At least I got a PP point from Dubi too

  56. Linda I think I’m going to that game lol and they haven’t lost to the Pens whenever I’m there (shhh…don’t tell anyone that it’s only been 1 game) haha

  57. nyrguy- i would too. u guys believe after all the pp time we still got outshot by 3? higgins hasnt had his usual 10 shots a period, in which 9 go wide. i was lookin for higy to come out and just will the puck into the net. i mean nothin else is workin for him, so i thought torts would just tell him to skate asssbackwards into rask,into the net and just force it in! force it higgy!! force it!! use the force

  58. Mike Keenan cannot speak coherently, and yet he is employed as a commentator on several networks. Has anyone in network management noticed that he can’t compose a sentence?

  59. Sorry, ilb. There, I said it.

    I must have missed something … can somebody fill me in on the origin of Capt. MACT?

    Versus makes me want to puke.

  60. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    hope i bring em some luck on thursday night!!! its time for an aves goal and I hope i get to see it!!!



    I said that the last time. I was wondering if he was on some meds or something…


    Captain “MonotoneontheAmbienIVdripChewToy” Drury


    LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!! LINDA!!!! That is hysterical!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  63. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    del zotto’s bid was blocked

    wtf, is this a corporate take over???


    OMG did you see that behind the back pass by Christensen!??!?!

  65. keenan is not a commentator. hes boring as hell, and have no idea why hes doin the intermission shows unless for comic relief. its funny but awkward watching him fumble his words around. hes nervous thats for sure. but when they ask him his opinion he just basically repeats what everyone just said. it just makes versus look more goofy than they already are


    Savard cracked him in the head when he skated through the crease…

  67. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    we said it 2 1/2 months ago and its still true today

    HANK NEEDS TO GO BILLY SMITH ON PEOPLE from now until the end of the season!



    HOLY CARP WHAT A FRIGGEN GOAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  69. That breakout pass didn’t actually go the way MDZ wanted, but we got a lucky bounce.


    Nah man that MDZ pass went RIGHT to Dubinsky and he passed it to Christensen

  71. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    they actually seem to be skating with a purpose this game. WEIRD!!!!!

  72. I’d be really interested in the cage fighting on Versus, if only they’d make the graphics a bit larger so I could read them while the play is going…

  73. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    they really need to do something about the music at the Garden! This is embarrassing!!!!!!!!!

  74. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    should i bake pillow hands some cupcakes for his bday??? with freakin vivarin in em?

  75. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    909 he must be the kobe beefburger with truffles and fries gilded in edible gold

  76. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    lmao!! puddin…if it wasnt for Fankist that’d be the funniest nickname we’ve come up with

  77. ranger909
    January 4th, 2010 at 8:22 pm
    Linda, he’s on the million dollar menu. He is the mortons steakhouse of McDonalds

    hahahaha awesome post!!! post of the week

  78. What do you know, they’re actually playing like a real hockey team so far tonight.

  79. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    shots on goal are LEVEL at 19 apiece

    we went from corporate take over to HGTV



    YOU get all the credit for that. Fankist was a combined effort.


  81. Remember how last year the Bruins seemed to just run over the Rangers at will? That team is completely different than a year ago. Rask is keeping them in the game, period.

  82. Brashear looks like he came right outa the stone age. Thats why he cant score, or stick handle. he’s got stone hands haha. bad pun!

  83. what other nicknames do you have for the players??? Funkist and puddin are golden… maybe christensen should get one now??

  84. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    brastrap has several! brastrap, puddin, charmin, pilowhands

    higgins is scooby doobie cuz he’s a stoner

    drury is the ONLY one with more names that brastrap


    Why dont the refs pick the sticks up off of the ice anymore?

  86. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    LMAO@ MIKE million dollar mcclutch!! that goes in the Bonehead Nickname hall of fame!!!!!!

  87. donny brashear, not used to this wear and tear but in the lineup cuz i got pic of torts in his underwear, it isnt fair
    no competition, man on a mission, unsurpassed ambition as my orange soda keeps fizzlin. Gimme a whopper,if glen don’t gimme that raise, i’ma sock her. cuz hes makin a mocker–y o number 87. Nah, no thanks. i only get my fatcakes from seven eleven.

  88. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    oh come on carissa, if you know ANY hockey you know thats whats called


  89. Linda, if you guys can make multiple nicknames, i can def. make the raps for him. lol.

  90. This is a beautiful game so far. I’m surprised the Rangers are making through the Bruins’ seemingly tough neutral zone trap. What a goal by Christensen! He’s gonna need a nickname if he keeps this up.


    Why isnt there ANYONE EVER on the off-wing to slam that thing home!!!!!

  92. They call me cally, come on beninati, gimme a tally
    get this team on a rally. U wanna know why i’m hot? Somethin called nature valley. healthy and delicious snack. Have you seen my six pack, such an impact. asked redden bout his jockstrap and its intact. woopsy daisy, he says that “the white powder doesnt phase me”.

  93. Brickley has spent too much time with Beninati. He just called Savard, Bergeron and Krejci the Bruins’ “straight-down-the-middle guys”. They’re called “centers”, Brick. “Centers”.

  94. spiderpig, i think we can all agree that if he keeps this up, we’re gna call him Christ. nuff said.

  95. erik christensen new nickname= the all american apple pie kid. no thats lame. it hard to come up with one for him. he hasnt done anything stupid yet. well he talks too much but still.

  96. Maybe it’s a good thing this game is on Versus. Sam is doing the Fiesta Bowl so we would’ve had to listen to Giannone

  97. Dubinsky, why are u frettin, u got somethin aginst me?
    Broken hand, doesnt matta, just as long as i’m still sallys “lil man”. take that turkey from drury, hes had too much tryptophan. If i aint on the ice ****’s gonna hit the fan. Call me out, call me names. see if i give a damn


    LOL Linda

    Its true – the kid ran his mouth over the weekend. I stood there with my mouth open at what he said LOL “Atlanta doesnt care about hockey…. NY fans are ruthless” YIKES! FIM FIM FIM!!!!

  99. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    it was soooooooo nice not having to see Pierre ‘circumsized head’ mcnugget at the winter classic! now if they could only lose Mike “toxic shoe avenger” milbury out of the mix….

  100. vladimir sobotka… everytime i hear his name it reminds me of petr svoboda from the sabres back in the day, anyone remember him from the lafontaine mogilny hawerchuk sabres days?

  101. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    mike are you on facebook?

    you gotta see the exchange me sally and my daughter were having last night.

  102. Carp

    I have a question, if Bergeron is seriously injured and will be out a few months, is Team Canada allowed to add another player to their roster to fill in for him? Or are the rosters finalized when they are announced?

  103. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    Rosters are final i think the day before the hockey tournament starts at the olympics

  104. linda i have facebook but i forgot mi password so i havent been on in almost 2 years. so i might get a new one. im still tryin to figure out what this enter button does on my keyboard. hey babs can u help me out? hey wheres greg?

  105. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    lmao Sharkie… outstanding!
    a pair of helpers on those 2 Ranger tallies! oy vey

  106. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    black and decker or craftsman

    yea, Prayers to that poor official that got his neck sliced open! i read about that the other day


    OMG if that wasnt a dive! That a CINDY style flop!

  108. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    if they want to attract the ‘casual fan’ your announcers should not be saying ‘ppg’ that is laaaaaaaaaaaame!!

  109. chocolate sobobka cake. wasnt that in a seinfeld episode where there was a hair in the cherry subobka cake and elaine lost the last chocolate sobobka cake?

  110. If only Dubi could’ve slid that over to Higgins to put it in the empty net. Oh wait…

    Beninati just called the Bruins the Eastern Conference Champions from last year. Nope, that would be the Penguins. At least there wasn’t a caption as well this time.

  111. rozys been decent tonight. everyone has been really. i mean staal had a series of bad turnovers in the”middle frame” just like in bowling!! frame,strikes,tallies,whats next, the “spare” player on the rangers?? hes a bowling freak

  112. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    LW, i’m glad i wasnt the only one questioning that!

    i swear this guy takes a thesaurus to the freakin bathroom with him

  113. hmm, just read another blog and apparently the pressbox @the garden is full of scouts tonight, possibly a trade on the way !

  114. Mike – Voros is the “spare”, right?

    And Beninati probably calls a shot wide a “gutter-ball” too. Of course, the correct terminology for that is a “Higgins”.

  115. Krisy, what blog? I didnt see anything bout it by gross. his blog of course is second to this one.


    LMAO LINDA!!!!!!!!


  117. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    lmao @ that is a “higgins”

    Krisy, THAT explains why puddin is in the lineup! He’s being showcased!

    sorry, just awoke from a daydream!

  118. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    its the mlm mindmeld! uh, did i just put myself in the middle there???

  119. Its amazing that versus can’t give their announcers anything more interesting than the stupid,mindless chatter that they fill the game with.

  120. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    yea we need to hear from langenbrunner because he’s played in this game

  121. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    holy carp thats like the 2nd time i’ve seen redden all night lmao


    LMAO “Thorton LADLES it ahead” WTF is this chef of the future!?!?!?!?

  123. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    damnit to freakinhell!!!!!!!!!!

    lol @ chef of the future!!

    spider, i’m lookin forward to saturdays game, the finacee is not!

  124. We’re 2/3 of the way to a Renney Hat Trick: A shortie against and a Too Many Men penalty. All we need now is the shootout loss.

  125. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    WTF! you guys jinxed it!!!!!!!!

    thanks rozsi for takin an hour to get outta the net

  126. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    for the Rangers 2012 has come extremely early! Good God almighty!!!!!

  127. I’m back. Sorry guys.

    Not the same post headers, I see.

    This team is full of a bunch of ************************************* losers.

    They are *********** sickening.

    Henrik plays a great game, and then cannot stop 1 of 2 *********** shots that shoudl be ************ stopped.

    This team is a *************** joke!

    We get fairly treated by the ******* referees, and give up a ******* SH goal.

    ***** SICK!

  128. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    how do you NOT hold onto a 2 goal lead for just five and a half more minutes??? what in the blue hell???!!

  129. really, i cant believe they just scored 2 friggin goals just like that!??! its not acceptable? HOW!?!? COME ON!


    Please that was Rozsi dumb @ss fault taking his sweet time getting out of the net

  131. FIRE that ******* LOSER SATHER.

    Run over Sather the way he ran this franchise into the ****** ground.

  132. About 60% of goals in our net either start or finish with a Rozsival screw up. It’s almost like the other team has another player everytime he’s on the ice…

  133. Sorry to be captain negative, but all I see is a loss in OT, with under 2 to go.


  134. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    freakin Sophia Petrillo Rozsival DiPietro hips takin an hour to get out of the net

    STONER BOY WITH A FIRETRUCKIN GOAL HOLY SHIP THE SKY IS FALLIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  135. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    i just took my eyes out and shook em really hard..

    higgins with a possible game winning goal @ MSG???

  136. Wow, what a great fakeout by Higgins for the winner! I’m glad we could get this back in regulation. How delightful! And we might see Ochocinco in goal for a start this week.



  138. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on


    SMELLS LIKE………..VICTORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  139. **** the ******* Bruins..

    The team with no ******* fans but their commentators and NBC and Versus commentators.

  140. couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn with a handful of rice, and he gets the winner. And 3 goals, that’s a firetruckin’ avalanche, ain’t it?

  141. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    lmao @ give that man a scooby snack and then rick with the give that man $4 million!!!

  142. Maybe Higgins will start scoring like normal now????? OK SORRY, I’M AN IDIOT, I KNOW… BUT WE WON! IN REGULATION! AT HOME! AGAINST A GOOD TEAM!!! WTF!?

  143. the higg-meister got us a win!! on one of the most lucky freakin goals!! but i will not argue with that one bit!! go bruins, go get your number 1 and number 2 piks in the nhl 10 draft!! omg the irony

  144. wow,cant belive we won!!! And Higgins.. LOL! Well, time to go to bed. Have fun guys, make me laugh in the morning! Good Night!

  145. overcoming adversity baby, 2010 is a new year lets take this game’s momentum into wednesday, minus the 6 minute to 2 minute mark in the 3rd

  146. Hm, they beat the B’s who beat the Flyers who beat the tar out of the Rangers…so the Rangers are better than themselves???

  147. k nyrguy, u gotta admit, i had the score right. it was 2-2 late in the 3rd. even my nostradomus skill couldnt see the divine intervention of higgins with the game winning tally

  148. Nice move Higgins. I have to say that was a pretty bad let down, two goals in just a few seconds. The second goal was a softie.

  149. I really hope they don’t go out and get wasted now and are still hungover and get killed by Dallas…

    Isn’t it terrible that’s what I think 5 minutes after a great win?

  150. Mike

    I was ready to come on here and say “WOW, that was an insane prediction” but good thing Higgins proved you wrong!

  151. ha ct!! good one. but why oh why did hank let that 2nd one by him?? it was soo weak. it was a little role reversal where our fwds bailed him out.

  152. RetireBradPark's#2 on

    There I was, feeling sorry for myself and wondering why almost no one (except Gaborik and Del Zotto)are capable of any finesse, and Christopherfreakinghiggins proves me wrong.

    Made me feel a lot better aboot that high glove side goal (what a shock) against Hank.

    I bet Andy Brickley was dying when Higgins scored. And if Beninati said “dasher” one more time, I was going to switch to “Jersey Shore”. Yes, that’s desperation.

    Good night all.

  153. Maybe Avery is saving all this energy for his game against Dallas and he will break loose lol. Maybe he didn’t wanna do anything stupid to get suspended for that game and now he can be unleashed


    WTF seriously how can you blame that second goal on LQ? Rozi was in the net bumped into him and he wasnt set for the shot….

  155. Higgins looks like he could be on Jersey Shore, give him some hair gel and he’ll fist bump all night long.

  156. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    i mostly call him Scooby Doobie, but every now and then I’ll call him Spiccoli just he always looks stoned

  157. yea i know we won but barely. my god any other game and it goes to ot and who knows what then. we are horrible in ots and shootouts. but yea nyrguy, i called it!!! higgins goal doesnt really count!! if were playin fair!!

  158. Higgins has been playing real well for a while now. He has been totally snake bit when it comes to scoreing. I don’t expect much but we can always keep hopeing he will continue. He has had so many chances the thing had to go in for him sometime.

  159. Why doesn’t Drury shoot more if he’s gonna unleash a shot like he did earlier in the game? Just put the pucks on net guys, anything can happen.

    Anyway, does anyone else agree with me about Avery? He will unleash in the Dallas game (probably with Ott) and go on a psycho-Avery tear after that. I think he is just being cautious b/c he doesn’t wanna miss this game

  160. ct- u hear about the new mtv show about guidos and guidettes or whatever the girls are called on the jersey shore. its almost liek areal world but for italian jersey kids. its soo damn stupid!! but anyway, higgins just looks like snoopy. or garfield with his half opened eyes.

  161. paulieplatypus on

    Ya think it’s possible Lundqvist let in the second goal go past him on purpose because he thought Rozsival was still stuck in the net exactly where the shot ended up?:)



    I certainly hope so. I miss the old Avery…

    it’d be great for the Real Aves to show up, but dont get in trouble cuz I’ll be disappointed if i dont get to see him Thursday!!!!!

    Congrats on the gwg Scooby Spiccoli!

    Dubi and Cally with 2 ‘helpers’ tonight, very good boys!

  164. That’s your best win of the year. This is a lesson to never get too comfy with a 2 goal lead at any point in the game. It’s one of those spring board wins. Maybe you’ll have some good things finally heading your way. This win might make the game against my devils mire interesting. I hope not.

  165. Well they played like stooges for 4 minutes and it almost cost them the game. Things are looking up.

    Time for Operation Repo. I can’t figure out if it’s real or staged.



    HOLY $**T!!!!!!!!! Wasnt she dating that little bi-troll???????? WOW that’s unbelievable!!!!!!!

  167. thats what i meant the other day about lowering our expectations with these guys. maybe if the fans lay off at the garden and let the pl,ayers play without hearing boos all the time, it will help. its always great when a guy who doesnt score, scores, and yes hes been good lately, but when you lower your expectations, you dont get so crazy when they miss or let a bad goal in. just like the mad tv comedy skit “lowered expectations”. look at dru, he made a huge block in the first and then a nice shot on goal in the 2nd. so give him a smack on his mcclutch ass and tell him hes doin a good job. lol


    nooooooooooooo I have very few LOL the Italian curse LOL

    I had a weird feeling tonight, thought we might see a clutch captain goal… and then I realized that was crazy and I’m probably coming down with the flu (which I am). Oh well. I swear I hate the “twigs” “tallies” and “helpers” ALMOST as much as I hate Joe “his 17 year old forearms are so big” Michelleti hyping up Chris Drury.

    Nice to see Higgy with a goal though, he’s one Ranger who always seems to “care” even if it can’t get him a goal… “but he deserves one” -(according to michelletti).

  170. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    yea Sharkie,they were engaged. Her mom recently took her adopted daughter away from her to give her, from what i read, a stable home. Its pretty sad.

  171. thanks larue, i was watchin the league of retarted gentlmn on amc. dumbest movie ver!! repos cool. and u ever watch ax men? good one. another good one is the jesse ventura show. its pretty new. but my fave is worlds dumbest criminals with the d list celebs makin fun of the criminals

  172. lol mike. u can slap his Mcclutch ass for everyone else. At least buy him a mCmocha from clutchbucks first.


    Hey Linda

    Did they ever release the toxicology report on Brittney Murphy? This chick was known for doing drugs & being in and out of rehab.

    When the F are this kids gonna learn not to do that garbage!!!!!!!

  174. paulieplatypus on

    Linda, about those big puppy dog Dubinsky eyes you and all the lady folk rangers fans seem to be so attracted too (Admit it!:)… If Dubi were ever to get spicolied, no way he could ever hide his blazing red eyes from the general public. Clear eye’s drops wont even work on eyes that big!

  175. damn that whole family is gargantuas. ugly ones too. linda, remeber we were talkin about rodan and gamera, well watch operation repo, they look like the 2 gargantua monsters from that movie

  176. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    paulie, not a fan of the nosepikahs looks, that’d be sassy sally! I’m a Cally girl myself, with Aves tossed in for the bad boy angle!

    Mako, i think that could be coming out this week or next. Another shame. If it’s drug related, how do they NOT learn from the young stars who’ve gone before them?

  177. hahaha sonya is like the ugliest woman spawned from the depths of hades!! she looks like the fat octopuss thing from little mermaid. ursula??? lol

  178. my ex wife loved hank. she thought prucha was cute. she always laughed at jagrs facial expressions. shes like, is this guy ever happy? he always had that ‘eff my life i wish i would play for a winning team’ look on his face. she thougt duby was a dork and she always said i look like cally cuz of our big noses

  179. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    Mako, for me, Hank is too polished! Dont get me wrong, the guy is smoking hot, but he’s too pretty for me lol!

  180. Linda : CALLY'S AN OLYMPIAN!! on

    URSULA!! mike, you’re just hilarious!!

    Prucha was adorable, with a lil bit of a mischevious look. When i get my pug, his names gonna be Prucha!

    so no torts presser after a versus game, and on the 25th we gotta deal with HOT DOG LIPS lovefest! Oy vey what announcers will we be stuck with then.


    Yeah I think this chick was on something when she picked these players

  182. linda if u ever see operation repo on court tv, u will see exactly what im talkin about. she even has a moomoo type thing on like ursula had in the mermaid. ehh and torts pressers arent fun after a win anyway!! lol. hey, ur one funny gal. great personality and good peron all around. hope u get a job again soon. im out till tommorow. night heads and head-ettes.

    larue- dont u feel a little satisfaction watchin matt get sprayed in the face and go down like a lil beeeyyotch? love his overalls he wears everyday too lol.

  183. True Fans Bleed RW&B on

    What is going on here?!
    Singles listings? LQ and NHL “hottness” discussions?

    Michelleti is really getting to some of you guys.

  184. My girlfriend loves LQ because she thinks he’s hot. I think that’s why she bought me his jersey. She loves Avery too



    Hmmmmmmmmm interesting. I never really asked for a LQ jersey and my gf bought me one for xmas & tickets to go to the game HMMMMMMMMMMMMM LOL

  186. is that the chick who did the hottest guys inhockey and it looked like a genetic mutant list for half of em? blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

  187. Anyone notice the main character in Avatar looks like Sean Avery ? I just saw it last night and my GF agreed….

  188. yes mike, i’ve seen ya and you’re good lookin! i told ya that before!

    so krisy had said earlier she read on another blog there were a lot of scouts at the game tonight. anyone have an opinion on that?



    My Morbid curiosity made me look and yes. Cindy & Frankenstein was on there plus all 4 Staal Brothers

  190. hammerhead, he was in terminator salvation also, we’ve been talkin about that since then! I still have to see avatar, but clash of the titans comes out march 26. and legion is out this month. my brother trains paul bettany, and i think he actually is an extra in the movie,he gets killed

  191. but this 2 years ago, I need another one to go along with it lol. I was thinkin a white Gaborik jersey, but may go with Cally USA now

  192. LQ is way too pretty – he is flawless in person. Too much with the hairspray and starched pocket squares…how about a flannel shirt or a tee shirt or something?

    Malkin makes Liver Lips look good (almost)

  193. what,no drury posting or uncle glennie wrap up??? hmmm and ricks been kinda quiet too. and so have cccp, ilb,and izzy… hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

  194. Nobody would happen to have 4 seats to the Penguins game on the 25th would they? LOL figure i ask before I spend money on jacked up tickets

  195. New post … and not a minute too soon. You guys get a little funky when you don’t have a loss to complain about.

  197. no, hank would NOT look right in a flannel shirt! bad vision get outta my head! he’s european, they tend to dress nice.
