It’s go time!


You all know what’s at stake. No need to add anything. A point keeps a lot of stuff alive. Two makes it more realistic. Zero makes it a dreadful situation.

Same lineup. Avery, Boyle injured; Lisin, Gilroy and Weise prucha’d. Lundqvist in goal, but who knows for how long.

See youse during the game.

  1. Izzy!!! I’ve been worried!

    Staal, PHEW!!! Oh I’m so thankful she’s alive, and that you got her fixed and kept her. Shite, what a story! I bet you’ll always check your car from now on (like I check my closets and terrace, but those are other stories).
    Yeah, that sound will haunt you, but Natty lives!!! Good girl!!

    OK, off to watch game….later. LGR!

  2. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    I’m getting the TSN feed right now. They are saying the Rangers have no firepower! HOW DARE THEY lol!!!

  3. Izzy Mandlebaum on

    Went to the Buffalo game last night. Long ride up. Longer ride back. Lunqvist was ordinary, it didn’t shock me too much that he was pulled. Redden stinks worse in person. By the start of the third, all I had left to do was watch the Phi-Tor out of town score. No luck there either. Only consolation is that Dolan didn’t get any of my money.

    Let’s Go Rangers. It’s down to must games now…

  4. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    oy!!!!!!!!! looking forward to yelling out

  5. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    omg this commercial is searing my corneas!!!!!!! “someone is fully marinated”

  6. Sally, Izzy went to Buffalo for the game and didn’t tell you. I am appalled.

    Izzy, I think that’s the most you’ve said here in one post all season :)

  7. off to the bar for pool league. this basketball crap had better be over! LET’S GO RANGERS!!!!!


    btw does the camera on versus seem “higher up” to anyone else? maybe it’s just me..

  9. Izzy Mandlebaum on

    Izzy, I think that’s the most you’ve said here in one post all season :)

    When you’ve said “Mandlebaum” usually you’ve said all that needs to be said.

  10. haha no problem linda. center ice didn’t have the game showing so that either means NHL network has it or Versus.

    I actually love when Versus carries it because that means I get it in HD. Center Ice always says they have HD, but no. Never.

    Sweet fight.

  11. Carp, I know you’re a golfer…who do you want to win the Masters this weekend?

    The good natured person in me wants Mickelson or Els but the golfer in me really wants Tiger to win. Thoughts?

  12. staalsy had a great chance to make it 2-0. but hes filled his quota for the season. dont need him getting anymore of a raise.

  13. Duker, I would love to see Els win a big one. It’s been a long time for him, and he’s a good guy who’s been through a lot.

  14. I heard Potvin’s work’s part time at an oyster processing plant- just for some fun money.

    I think it’s ‘Potvin Shucks’

  15. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    man hijacked the computer but i kicked him off to say

  16. Nostril-Dumboos couldn’t even finish…what happened to him? Good thing Fankist was there to put it in.

  17. Boys, please no stupid penalties. I’d like another goal soon, but the leafs’ are so ridiculously chippy…I’ll be shocked if we don’t win (please win!)

    Carp, i’m with you. Els or Lefty, but ANYONE but Woods.

  18. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    lmao Rick, only if i’m watching them on the computer! Duker mentioned versus, so he asked if he could jump on the computer



  19. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    i looooooooooooooooooooooove watchin them on my big freakin TV!!!! its awesome!

  20. Slow down boys, don’t overuse your rollover minutes. Nah, screw that. YEAAAAHHHH!

  21. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    Duker, I’m gonna change the channel just to make sure i’m not dreaming!

    TR, poor gustavsson lol

  22. Nice pass by Roszi – JOki was deep in the defensive end so it wasn’t like he was cherry picking
    Vinny nice follow up

    HOLY Christensen!

  23. It must be time for the Brian Burke angry face by now. So nice of the Leafs to not play any defensemen in this game.

  24. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    lmao @ the brian burke angry face. is that like the manning face that bill simmons talks about?

  25. Great move by AA! PP. Toronto is gliding and looked overmatched. Pull the goalie, Wilson :))

  26. It must be good to be a Bruins fan this year (with apologies to CR9) – you can want your team to sneak into the playoffs and at the same time tank for a top-3 draft pick. No dilemma there.

  27. All these too many men penalties…anything to do with only having two coaches behind the bench or just down to brainless players?

  28. plus I can watch the first period again since I missed it.

    damn we do that too many men a lot. has to do with discipline and coaching

  29. miked

    That’s what i mean… Joe M has been camping all season long under Drury’s nutz…someone should tell Joe that it was really nice out today…he should just come out from under there already.

  30. Nothing to do with two coaches. The head coach usually calls the forward lines. A second coach is usually in charge of the D. That is a discipline issue.


  32. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    lol bitt, we had fun with that earlier. I guess it doesnt bother him lol ;-)

  33. Oh, Grabby, yes we do! and your priorities are byfuglien’d. If she’s not a Ranger fan, Sally and I are gonna take to the woodshed buddy!

    sigh, if only we had last night’s points. But I’m staying positive!!!

  34. Izzy Mandlebaum on

    CCCP- Joe M has been camping all season long under Drury’s nutz…

    Look up- See Dru?

  35. Grabby, I am hurt. deeply hurt. TR, I’ll let you stand up for Hil.

    ORR! You should know better when I’m in the house!

  36. Hello My Wonderful Blog Family!

    Linda, I just got in and will reply to you soon.

    WOW I just caught some of the highlights. I know TO is a dreadful team, but only when their butts are on the line they come out with this fire.

    FANKIST BABY!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. Great first period. Need to keep it up, don’t give ’em any life.

    For those who care, 1-1 Mets/Fish in the 3rd.

  38. they look good, but the opponent is weak. and I am not even worried about Fri.

    it is Sunday that I think will be the game where the pushback will be intense. that will determine the season. and if Henrik can’t outplay 3rd stringer Brian Boucher, well then they won’t deserve a spot.

  39. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    BRO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yes!!!!!

    trust me, take your time replying to that epic novella!

    our boy FANKIST, and FIM X2

  40. Sniff. You can pick Sally, but you ignored me! Bwaaaaaa!

    Lord, I love intermission on a good night! So much fun….blogmamah….mama is happy!

    be back….

  41. dshea – I’m inclined to blame the players too, but didn’t Pelino and Pearn take the forwards and D-men respectively (might have got that the wrong way round) under Renney?

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

    Hey Mako , how it gowanggg !!! Mike’s got two chicks fighting over him in blog world with another gal in the real world comming over after the game. Geeze some guys have it all!!!

  43. Well I see that RR doesnt accept Cyrillic. That was supposed to say COMRADES!!!

    GREG! How are ya buddy! I miss ya! HAHAHAHAH That’s great! Better than two guys fighting over him ;)

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

    Hope his hockey team los….oh wait , Go Rangersss!!!

    Go Mike!!!! ( Grabby)


  45. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    wait, i thought sally and cccp… i mean, they played spin the bottle last year and kissed!

  46. Girardi IS a durable guy. How many players can spend most of their games on their knees and still skate after?

  47. pierre!!! u stupid bastage!!! did anybody hear him say how hank isnt as good as he used to be?? i wanna smack him hard!!! right in his peewee head

  48. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    well grabby, Pierre is half the woman he used to be, and this week is his woman week

  49. sallys mine!!! keep ya russian hands off!!!! cccp!! wow. deja vu!! i said that to u like a year ago!! the exact same thing. strange

  50. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    i dont know grabby, i think they had their moment before you claimed her lol

  51. Come on, lay off Pierre a little. He has to spend most weekends being in close proximity to Milbury – must be some stupidity by osmosis going on there.

  52. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    whoa bro. don’t go there!!!!! lol knucklehead!! hold on a sec, he’d probably think you’re hot too!!!

  53. gabby is definitely off his game lately. hes reminding me of zherdev from late last season and playoffs. not as lazy, but his timing is off and his game isnt there right now

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

    Women love his “rage” , iowa country boy good looks ( so I was told) ..his honesty and openess. Hes a caring , loving guy . Strong and bold. He a good catch for any young lady.

  55. I think Torts should sit Cristensen for the rest of the game. If he gets a hattrick, I’m afraid Sather will offer him a 5 year, $5.5 mil per contract.

  56. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    i was looking for a tie for Torts yesterday in express. too nice. I think i’ll go to goodwill or Ross for one!

  57. All right, Dubi! I’ll take the penalty for him standing up for Gabby.

    Roughing the Finger. Heh, oh Sam.

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

    Mike , Maybe Cr9 would like yer butt too but the idea of yer butt makes me wanna puke. TMI dude, TMI.

    WOW , Prust is better then Avery!!!!

  59. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    Torts looked absolutely INSANE there!!! Anthony Perkins Tortarella!

  60. Linda.. since we are missing Aves.. Heres “almost” Aves in glasses. :)

  61. GRABBY

    If he at least gave him a beat down, then that would be fine, but he did nothing, in fact he wanted to take him down. So, what’s the point.

    If they would have scored on that PP, then it’s a whole new game.

    I don’t care if it’s Dubi, Aves, Prust, or anyone.

  62. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    hot guys with buddy holly type glasses, why is this a trend? lol

    thanks for the pic Krisy!!

  63. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    lmao Nor! the possibility of a hat trick is messing with his mind! Just give him some Mr. T cereal between periods and he’ll be fine!

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

    Go Rangers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GO GO GO GO GOOOOOO!!! Keep it up. I Love itttttt!!!

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

    How can ya not love seeing our boys in blue . Beutiful Jerseys. Awsome design , nice blue color ….very sexy.

    I see Cr9 and his love for the players but im in love with the jersey and logo .What made Jagr look so good was that he was wearing our Blue . I know ladies look better in our Jersey. Ima sucker for a lady in a Rangers Jersey!!! Maybe thats why Momma liked Avery , seeing him in a Rangers Jersey? Sally’s like for Dubinsky…in a Rangers Jersey (draft time)she saw him. Cr9 for Hank , Hank modeling in his Jersey.

    The Jersey hasn’t change much at all. Thats because ya don’t mess with good thing. Dam we look good!!!!

  66. You can pick your friends, you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your friends nose.

  67. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    “Hank modeling his jersey” that just sounds dirty!

    LMAO @ finger gets right in his face

  68. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    lmao LW! again, i didnt see it

    HEY MAKO, now that you’ve come back to the grid, does that mean i get Torts Pressers again????

  69. HockeymanRangers on

  72. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    HOCKEYMAN!!! you KNOW the boneheads keep this blog alive all summer long! was a huge help for me last summer

  73. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

  74. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    there has to be a hockey player with the last name of FEELEY somewhere!

  75. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    Tonights cameo by Mako,brought to you by

    io digital cable

  76. Orr, with an actual fiddle. As in Fiddler on the Roof.

    Which come to think of, the fiddler in that show serves no purpose.

  77. Sorry, Linda. Was watching the game during the intermission and know there are some Mets fans around these parts.

    Oh darn, Leaves score :(

  78. watch gabby get another empty netter. cmon gabby i wanna see a wist shot actually go in on a goalie this time!!! you are becoming a non factor!

  97. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    they did it for Tony! again, good luck tomorrow!! we’ll all be thinking about ya

  98. Sather's WrapUp on

    Hello Ranger Fans! It’s good to be back again! Oh, I didn’t go to Buffalo, too much snow up there. I went to Florida to scout for the playoffs. Yes, I know both Florida teams are out already, but Dolan doesn’t.

    Remember that story last time about the Rangers Road Tour van being stuck at the Mexican Border full of marijuana? Well, I guess the word got out somehow. All game long the fans were yelling “the Pot Van’s Stuck!” I wonder how they found out?

    (singing) “If I were a Rich Man” There’s Dolan’s ringtone. Hey Big guy! We did it Again! Another Sellout! Now you can buy that Bullet Proof Glass for your Limo. Didn’t I tell you that we will make the playoffs? I’ve never lied to you before, as far as you know. No… what DID Keenan say? (click) Keenan’s got a BIG MOUTH!!!!

    And now, A Fairy Tale (CR- down boy!) The Little Red Glennie
    All right you guys! ! Who’s been using my phone?
    “Not I” said the Muck!
    “Not I” said the Mess!
    “Not I” said the Keenan!
    “Not I” said the Torts!

    Who’s been sitting in my chair?
    “Keenan” said the Muck!
    “Muck” said the Mess!
    “Torts” said the Keenan!
    “Messier” said the Torts!

    Who wants to be GM for next year?
    “I will,” said the Muck!
    “I will,” said the Mess!
    “I will,” said the Keenan!
    “I will,” said the Torts.

    “Oh no, you won’t, you little twerps” said the Little Red Glennie. “I drafted the players, I built the team, I took it to the playoffs, and I suckered Dolan out of a huge salary, all by myself. I shall now be GM for life.”

    So the Muck, the Mess the Keenan and the Torts all stood and watched as the Little Red Glennie ran the team into the ground. As he was laughing at them, one of them said, “OK, for life it is then…” pulled out a gun and shot him, and all the others swore it was a suicide. And the Ranger Fans cheered “Fire Sather” never again.

    Hmmm… I don’t remember The Little Red Hen ending like that.
    Uncle Glennie

  99. Not to get ahead of ourselves here, but maybe we can do the Second Annual Paul Mara Playoff Beard Contest on Zetterburger if Carp can’t do it here?

    What says yous boneheads?


    Sorry, I just love a good happy win, no matter what. Duker and you guys who can’t see salute, that’s too bad. I get chills every time!

    Sally, to win again you’d need a real one this time.

  101. Sam and Al keep saying they have to beat philly twice in regulation, they only have to win one in regulation and the other can be in OT or shootout

  102. Uncle Glennie, thank heavens your back…..p’ing my pants…can you do one based on Little Rabbit FuFu? That would be awesome!

  103. Mama, What do you mean “a real one this time”???

    If I put it together on Zetterburger I wouldn’t enter myself tho.

  104. yea sally that was grabbys!!! haha i am the ranger psychic!!! hmmm, wait… im gettinga vision. ok,yes. yes. oh my. uh oh. ok good!!!! nooooooooooo. guys, i have to tell u what i saw. youre not gonna believe it. duby breaks his finger after tripping and landing in jokinens nostril. his hand goes about 3 feet in and he breaks his pointer. now hes only gonna be able to pick 1 booger a game!!!

  105. Leetch has improved a LOT since early in the season. He’s now better than Keenan as an analyst.

  106. Sally, mea culpa. je suis tres stupide! (thought I’d international us again….wicky?) Grow away Sally and all, grow away….I still like the tie contest better. (no offense to zetter…)

  107. the Rangers will win Friday, and on Sunday the ________________will _____________.

    tune in Sunday to find out. the suspense is building.

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

    ORR , the bet was you cant talk about Megan fox or say her name untill her next movie comes out. Like if she ever has a new movie , or the day you first see it, not bootleged either , on video dvd ,leagaly.

  109. Dang, missed the Dubi pick. But not so sad really :)

    Great night Staal and all….still stomach knotted for weekend.

    LGR and tomorrow all! Carp, zzzzz. sorry.

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

    MMMMMMM ddebened , yummy!!! I love yer way of celebrating!!!! I want 2 plz :)

  111. “Leetch has improved a LOT since early in the season. He’s now better than Keenan as an analyst.”
    I bet you he is now probably better than Redden too as a d-man.

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

    Yeah but they are NOT Megan the “fox” Fox. Settle for ima…(bear with me on this one) …imatations. Second or third best , sloppy seconds. No Megan fox , not one word. Ill be talking about her ALL the time!!!!

  113. Ok that’ll be:
    1 Pure Fruit Bar for CR9
    4,5,6 .. make it a dozen Screwballs
    A Colonel Crunch for Captain Clutch
    A pair of Super Twins for Linda and Mako
    what else we need

  114. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    lmao the slimer guy from ghostbusters for sally, with a #17 carved in it!

  115. ilb, That’s a suckers bet. We KNOW he’s better than Redden. Can you just imagine Leetchie and MDZ manning the points on the PP, with Leetchie mentoring him all season long. It would be phenomenal.

  116. Ha! some ladies are wickying! nite blogettes! nite blogmen! night carp…..can”t wait to read your post-game post and have you at game Friday! That will be clutch!

  117. Seems like Torts has stumbled on some decent lines here at the end.
    I like what I’ve seen from Prust lately, but can he keep it up? Anisimov definitely looks stronger, more comfortable. DZ…same thing. Who’s this Erixon guy? is that Jan’s son?
    Could be better next year.

  118. LOL, Staal.. The problem is this Ericsson guy will likely be changing his grandkids diapers next year

  119. Linda says GO PRUST!!!! on

    LMAO YOU stole the words right outta my fingers ilb!!!

    funny thing is, you don’t hear his name much, so you KNOW the guys doing his job!!!

    OMG when did the Yankees sign the big guy from head of the class?????

  120. Fox is like a powerful rare drug, but chicks like Ashley Green, Miranda Kerr, etc. are all cocaine, meth, acid, crack, etc. I’ll be able to get my high from those chicks until then.

    Don’t get ahead of yourself though. It’s far from over. All the Flowers need are two OT losses.

  121. Balk? That was a balk? OK, I’ll take it cause it tied up the score, but that was a McCreary-esque bad call.

  122. Good for Tkachuk. He’s been a warrior for a very long time. Enjoy the fishing, Keith.

  123. Can we have like 5 more prusts?
    Prust, prust,prust, puts em to the dust, clean up after he undresses you cuz diapers are a must. In calgary he was a bust, but in NY its all bout the cash cash money. I’m as aggressive as the bee without honey. Without hating the person, its hard to make the raps funny. PEACE

  124. Nice win tonight for the Rangers!!!

    Did not watch the game, watched the Yankees. When I watch one team, I do not watch the other (superstition thing)

    And watched the umpiring led by Joe West and Angel Hernandez with the HP umpire Paul Schreiber cheating us all game!!

    It never gets old for these guys.

    You’d think after a while, they may want to umpire the game fairly. But that is not the case.

  125. at the game tonight.

    live in calif. but back to visit colleges for one of my kids.

    very good game, the rangers dominated the first big time.

    prust does look like a good player for an enforcer..

    drury looked good tonight, no joke. hit the post, did not skate like an old man. obviously friday is the most important game of the year……

    making the playoffs would only cost them a spot or 2 in the draft…

  126. How many times did I need to be mentioned on here????


    Dont worry Grabby, I save myself for the hot athletes, not hot guys like U!

    I’ll take that fruit bar, ddebened, along with Avery’s ice cream cone.

    Greg, yes, the jersey has a lot to do with the hotness. Jaromir’s derriere (sp?) was especially hot with the red white and blue. He was man with all the right curves!!!!!

  127. I must show my passion for your generosity supporting those individuals that need guidance on this issue. Your real dedication to getting the solution all around appeared to be incredibly insightful and has specifically permitted ladies just like me to achieve their ambitions. Your entire important guideline implies a great deal a person like me and further more to my mates. Best wishes; from everyone of us.
