It’s Go Time!


Rangers-Flys for the first time this season, at the Arena That Changes Names Every Five Minutes (why can’t debris fall on their heads?). Not much more needs to be said.

Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal (against Sergei Bobrovsky, 6-2-0, 2.39).

Derek Boogaard back in (duh). Todd White and Matt Gilroy are prucha’d. Evgeny Grachev gets his first taste of the rivalry, as does Derek Stepan among others.

Speaking of which, we’ve got a new poll down the right side.


Our buddy Andrew Gross reports that Chris Drury’s re-broken finger was, indeed, broken in the same spot, and that the captain believes it was re-broken because it was in a weakened state. So much for that coincidence that he broke the same finger in a different spot.

He also reports that Carcillo is skating on a fourth line with ex-Rangers Shelley and Betts. Wonder if Prust might make an appearance on a line with Boogaard — because Carcillo won’t go near Boogaard, but Shelley will.


Two unrelated items:

1) Isn’t it nice to not be getting phone calls from all those full-of-carcillo politicians?

2) R.I.P. Sparky Anderson.

    RIP Sparky

    LMAO Carpy… “in a weakened state”, all i could think of was Ferris Bueller!

    Hope Fozzy and LW have a great time at the game!

  2. Keenan said it right” It’s not learning moment at all!!!”

    Since Indians where tying razor clams to their feet, inventing the great game of hockey, there has NEVER been a moment of confusion over whether or not a guy should jump in and fight for the star player.


  3. Are youse watching the pregame? For some reason Boogart seems to skate with much more confidence during the pregame skating

  4. In fairness, Girardi has been GREAT this season, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he jumps Carcillo at some point to redeem himself from last year. . . . .Darren McCarty style!!!

  5. Gift of GAB-orik on

    Watching the warmups… Carcillo yapping at Avery… Boogie came over and introduced himself with a shoulder…. him and Carcillo had words. Could be interesting.

    Also as an aside… Gross had a link to the 5 fights between Boogie and Shelley. Suffice it to say Shelley has not fared well. Boogie pretty much owns him.

  6. Gift of GAB-orik on

    I wonder if we’ll see a Dubinsky-Richards flare up? Avery/Hartnell?

    i’m getting pumped…. LET’S GO RANGERSSSSSSSSSSS

  7. cwgatti- I’m sure Girardi knows it was a mistake. I wouldn’t be surprised if he tries to redeem himself tonight. He can throw them, btw

  8. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Time to BOOGIE !!"...& Greg L. on

    Time to shine , ready to get our “groove on”. Lets get this party started!!!!

    This game is personal.

    Ive waited 6 long months for t his game.

    payback time.

  9. “there has NEVER been a moment of confusion over whether or not a guy should jump in and fight for the star player”

    When you’re team is battling for a playoff spot, and they need points, and they’re down by a goal in that game, then the confusion is understandable.

    Like I’ve said in the past. Gabby deserved that beat down. He was a complete idiot for putting himself in that position. We needed him to play the game, and score goals, not sit in the box, and let agitators get to him, which he did. He was pretty much useless for that game, for most of the end of the season.

  10. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Time to BOOGIE !!"...& Greg L. on

    Gaborik was not an idiot. He stuck up for HIS OWN self and that my friend is couragous. He did NOT back down , wont be..pushed around…stand his ground.

  11. Perhaps, Girardi didn’t jump to our superstar’s rescue because he sees himself as a superstar needing of protection as well?

  12. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Time to BOOGIE !!"...& Greg L. on

    Any goon who fight a star guy (Gaborik) has ZERO class. Hense the name acting like Carsillyo.

  13. Gabby *IS* an idiot. He was our only goal scorer, and he sat in the box because he was getting pushed around. He’s a dope.

    Carcillo not only kicked the sh*t out of him, but he did his job by getting him off the ice.

    Didn’t we get shut out in that game too? Epic fail on his part.

  14. within the first 5 minutes of the game Staal will be knocked off the puck behind the net and Hank will have to bail him out with a big save.

  15. I don’t think Dublowsky is going to do anything. He’s going to yell and talk tough, but he’ll just play, which is what he should do.

    And I agree, Greg. But, I’d still take Carcillo on NYR. He does his job well, and he’s a tough ugly bastard.

  16. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Time to BOOGIE !!"...& Greg L. on

    Yeah as a scorer he was dumb but he was no idiot. He stuck up for himself…He got into it during the heat of the moment. ORR , Thats passion and determinating. Gaborik is no pussy( wussy) and he fought him. Last I heard the IDIOT carsillo had his hand all cut up…whos really the idiot?

  17. Girardi knew he made a mistake … and don’t forget he jumped Hartnell after a big hit at the Garden later in the season.

  18. >>…He stuck up for himself…

    As he should! Superstar or not, when another man threatens you physically, you stand up for yourself and defend yourself. You’ll earn more respect that way.

  19. Czechthemout!!!! on

    Girardi has won me over,and I was really down on him last year for his cowardly action. I think we need to move on on this issue.

    We have to expect that the Flyer goons will try some kind of dirty hit or cheap shot on a guy like AA or Stepan. This team unlike the others over the past several seasons will take care of business don’t forget about Prust as well.

  20. MickeyM is thrilled that Political season is over! on


    FIGHT numero uno of the night!

    Let’s kick some Flyer behind tonight.

  21. Boogieman hit too much helmet for his fist’s liking.

    I love that bell sound at the beginning of that fight.

  22. I’ll tell you, I don’t remember ever seeing Shelley that timid and careful during the fight

  23. That wasn’t a penalty. The flyer guy turns around and flings Casllahan head first towards the boards. I don’t get it.

  24. >>are sam and joe paid for each time they mention boomer and carton?

    Unreal! I’ll never watch/listen because of that constant nagging.

  25. MickeyM is thrilled that Political season is over! on

    Avery has been exceptionally good behind the net this year.

    So, Cally gets boarded, essentially- no call. Staal hits Zherdev and is called for hitting from behind? WTB, refs?!

  26. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    suspect officiating in a Rangers flyers game??? I never thought I’d see the day….

  27. most of the games this year have been like this, it appears Bettmen has the officials attention.

  28. MickeyM is thrilled that Political season is over! on

    Blair Betts sighting.

    Settle down, Boogaard. We got a PP.

  29. mao_del_zedongo on


  30. Blue Seat Horror on

    Moronic pass by slowzival. Stevie Wonder could have seen Giroux standing in the passing lane.

  31. MickeyM is thrilled that Political season is over! on

    Flyers are dangerous shorthanded. I thought they learned this lesson last year when Richards scored twice on them 5 on3 on one game.

  32. it took me 10 min to find the station on this piece of carcillo radio that Im stuck with!

  33. mao_del_zedongo on

    I love this version of the Rangers…they play passionately, they finish checks…they are cohesive…this is a great tempo game…Frolov is waking up too…strong on the puck…we finally have a team with fire!! GOD BLESS THE RANGERS AND THE BONEHEADS BLOG!! And may we all be blessed with DUBI-Kisses!

  34. N.CountryNYRFan on

    So far the refs have missed 4 non calls against the Rangers its such BS. Decent fight by Booger. I hate these dirtbag flyers…GO Rangers.

  35. N.CountryNYRFan on

    Hard fought first period. Its always hard to play against the flyers and the refs. At least we have a pp to start the second.

  36. mao_del_zedongo on

    EC’s best period to date…Boyle skating with confidence…i missed the fight tho….Humphrey Boogard win?

  37. MickeyM is thrilled that Political season is over! on

    Decent first period, but more offense would be in order.

    Undercard of Prust v Carcillo in the second, perhaps.

  38. I missed the whole period. reading through the comments it doesn’t seem like we are putting much offensive pressure.

    I want to see the fights!

  39. Boogs gotta learn to take the opponents helmet off before unleashing those bombs or he won’t have a hand left at the end of the year.

  40. Shelley is a good fighter but when the guy your fighting is allot bigger and longer arms you pretty much get pounded to the ice which happened in this fight.

  41. Dubi Dubi Du! 1-nil.

    I always say they shouldn’t let a penalised team change its penalty killers. We’d see a lot more power play goals.

  42. headache — check
    sinus pressure — check

    confused by the day due to lack of
    sleep and working 3 jobs this week
    that deals with stuff for today, tomorrow and
    two weeks from now — check

    Rangers power play goal — i guess things are alright

  43. mao_del_zedongo on

    Dubi really a top notch third liner now on most teams…(tongue firmly in cheek)…those calling him 3rd liner should admonish themselves with no ice cream for a week!

  44. mao_del_zedongo on

    orr, dubi’s responsiblity is the point…how can he be at both places?…callie was already low

  45. for anyone who watches other teams play…
    i don’t recall as many other teams watching the puck as
    much as we do.


  46. Not as good as Hossa, or Hossa not as good as Grach?

    Mao, even so, he should be aware of all players on the ice, and has to cover up for the d-man. You can’t leave a guy like that completely alone.

  47. MickeyM is thrilled that Political season is over! on

    That was only a bruised elbow for Uncle Daddy? The way he was acting, I thought he’d been shot.

  48. mao_del_zedongo on

    jpg, i think the rangers have been playing very good positionally after the second game debacle. They have many players strong on the puck…best board work in years….they do look a bit timid at times, and then they overcome that with hustle.

  49. jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeezus!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    he can’t score a single byfuglien thing with us
    and he gets Hank to look like an AHL goalie!!!!!!!!!!!!

  50. i have a Dream request as well

    that the refs aren’t biassed against us
    and that we play a little better tonight.

  51. When you have a coach telling you that you that your team is a 1-0 or 2-1 team and your job is to kill penalties and not score, well you tend not to score.

  52. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Time to BOOGIE !!"...& Greg L. on

    OMG Blair Betts is killing us!!!????


  53. N.CountryNYRFan on

    does that count as a shot in fantasy leagues

    …ahhhh…the cuese of former rangers scoring on us

  54. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Time to BOOGIE !!"...& Greg L. on

    OMG Zherdev now!!!????


    Firetruck you son of a Mustards!!!


    GO GO GO GO GO GO !!!

    Time out!@!!!???

  55. Doodie Machetto on

    Sick one-timer by Lundqvist, up and over the goaltender’s shoulder. Why can’t that one count for us?

  56. I figured I’d tune into some MLS playoff action and Red Bulls are already down 1-0 after just 10 minutes. Must be a theme here for NY teams tonight.

  57. N.CountryNYRFan on

    do we turn the 3rd period into a fight fest and beat the Carcillo out of Carcillo…I vote yes

  58. MickeyM is thrilled that Political season is over! on

    They stopped hitting, that’s part of the problem. That and the lack of shots on net. Among other things.

  59. what is it about players that leave our team
    and then have a chip on their shoulder when they
    play us.

    you would think that they’d be happy playing for
    an organization that’s more conducive to winning
    and they have a better chance at playing.

    look at Z and Betts (and Orr)….completely different
    players once they left Rangers


  60. Czechthemout!!!! on

    This has been probably the worst period of the season. They seem brain dead tonight.
    AA does not seem right. I think hismankle is not good.

  61. Olga Folkyerself on

    It’s because Sather screws ’em so bad that they love to stick it to him every time they play the Rangers. And, the turnover rate for Slats is so high that there are a ton of those guys out there.

  62. jpg

    Perfect example was Kovalev. He TORE it up after he left the Rangers and played with the Pens / Jagr / Straka.

  63. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Time to BOOGIE !!"...& Greg L. on

    Flyers make me sick but My love for the Rangers …smothers any hate I have. Our team will come back , we have heart. Our goalie let in some weak ones so we are down but were not out. Betts and Zherdev were good Rangers in my eyes so why wouldnt they wanna play strong against us? We beat the ChuMps and now were gonna beat the goons who played the ChUmps. 6o minutes . It takes a full game to resolve this out come . Our chance is comming up. Third period baby!!!! LETS GO RANGERS!!!!

  64. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Time to BOOGIE !!"...& Greg L. on

    LETS GO RANGERS!!! Zherdev and betts scored and we are down by two measley goals Mikey. This Flyer team is playing hot as of late so who cares if they out played us in the second period. Time for the 3rd folks. Watch what our boys have in store. oy oy oy oy oy oy!!!!


  65. Delzotto give one away and Hank puts one in his own net. It won’t be much fun in the dressing room. Frolov is out there gliding around like it’s a Sunday skate. Where was the defence on the first goal? There was nobody within fifteen feet of Richards when he scored. This will be a test for them. They haven’t really played very well after the goals.

  66. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Time to BOOGIE !!"...& Greg L. on

    Delzotto cost us a goal on that one play on Betts goal . I hope Torts doesnt get to spazzy on him. Give the kid a break.

  67. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Time to BOOGIE !!"...& Greg L. on

    Teams are already cluing in on Frolov’s wrap-arounds. The guy is getting creamed cuz he acting like a 1 trick pony.

  68. guys, we cannot win all the time with this lineup. just not gonna and the hustl and grit and shot blockin and all that is great, but u need some talent and gabby will bring that and prospal and drury will add soem offense too. and leadership. lol. we dont really need much more of that when ya got christensen leading the way. and frlov. i havent watched, just got up, but has grachev played? hes going to score soon eventually right? oh i just saw the zherdev goal. or did lq really score that? thats some pathetic carcillo right there. how do make those unbelievable saves like he does, then lets those in? its like the 3rd or 4th horrible goal since the season started.

  69. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Time to BOOGIE !!"...& Greg L. on

    Carsillio should get his toews stepan with Sharp skates ORR.

  70. yea ive had enough of dz too orr. if hes not scoring, hes really useless it seems. a liability worse than rozy at this point. should give him a seat like he did with stepan for a game or so. somebody please inform him that the homerun pass isnt working. its got like a 1 outta 10 conversion rate. i thought he brought the puck up good last year. does he not trust himself with the puck? which is why hes losing it alot.

  71. MickeyM is thrilled that Political season is over! on

    Led with the elbow and left his feet. That SHOULD be a penalty, but won’t be.

    Stupid firetrucking carcillo piece of carcillo.

  72. in-byfuglien-believable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    the guy elbows him in the face
    jumps off his feet
    and nothing

    this game is bush league
    this league is bush league

  73. N.CountryNYRFan on

    i don’t care about two points tonight or suspensions…somebody has to take Carcillo out

  74. MickeyM is thrilled that Political season is over! on

    OK, I vote someone pounds a Flyer into dust. That’s all I want right now.

  75. mao_del_zedongo on

    Time to beat up flyers now…old time hockey style..send out the 4th line every other shift b4 the 5min mark

  76. MickeyM is thrilled that Political season is over! on

    Biron time? Might not be a bad idea.

    Prust wants someone bad.

  77. MickeyM is thrilled that Political season is over! on

    Ya know, I’ll take a trade off of a loss tonight if they beat the Devs tomorrow.

  78. i cant watch this isjust too boring. nice fight prust. wheres all our 1st liners like boyle and fedotenko tonight?

  79. Olga Folkyerself on

    Boogard! Leave Shelley alone! Start hitting some of those other guys.

    Shelley will have to come to you…

  80. MickeyM is thrilled that Political season is over! on

    How inventive of a chant. Jeez.

    Sweet move by Dubi, if only he could finish that off.

  81. Olga Folkyerself on

    ilb- why bother with Shelley anyway. Hit Richards, Carter, Carcillo. Even Bob. If Shelley won’t stick up for HIS guys, then Boogie can just keep hitting.

  82. frolov is going nowhere unless hes getting traded for a low pick or something. he is being outplayed by eveeryone. hell, gabby is not even playing and first game back he’ll probably equal frolovs goal total. frolov is what the kings fans liek to call “froloaf” hes way worse than zherdev. zherdev at least could skate and get a nice shot off. and he doesnt even need to shoot it to score. he could just pass it to hank, and boom!

  83. Grab- yep probably lucky for a pick for him

    He is flying under the radar because The Dubi-Amnisimov-Cally line is playing so good

  84. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Time to BOOGIE !!"...& Greg L. on


    we won both fights!!!

    YEAH BABY!!!!

  85. orr, im guessing christensen got a shot? is that sick wrister something? or what? what? ohhh u said what!! ok. huh?

  86. You cannot win games with shot blocking alone. I say call up Stepan from Hartford. Oh wait… Never miiiind!

  87. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Time to BOOGIE !!"...& Greg L. on

    I was named Rangers GM today!!! Online LNHL xboxlive .


    Lets fight and be happy!!!!

  88. MickeyM is thrilled that Political season is over! on

    A goalie interference call in the Rangers favor? Shocking!

  89. why the hell doesn’t Hank show some of that anger
    on wellwood?
    who gives a crap?
    hit him with you gd stick!!!!!!!
    what a frehley ass night
    was afraid of this
    should have went to the movies

  90. grachevs a bigtime scorere!! get him on the ice! get christensen off!! lol. wheres all the duby haters now????????? huh? where are ya? im coin for ya!!

  91. I agree, Jpg. Hank must have mistakenly confused his balls with Swedish meatballs and ate them.

    He needs to grow a pair and deal with the players himself. Clearly his own teammates wont stick up for him.

  92. hank let kopecky put his butt right in his face the other night. hank barely even moved his head. he nver pushes anybody outta the way. i dont know why but obviously staal n girardi werent gonna do anything, and how long has it been like this? you would think allaire would tell hank,(like he really needs to be told) to clear his damn crease. just a shove, anything.

  93. terrible terrible effort. sam rosen has zero clue.

    the del zotto 2nd goal was a horrible play. about the 3rd freebie he has given up so far this year. he needs to use his brain.

    the zherdev goal was all henriks fault totally.

    the boogard penalty on the slash was laughable for the ridiculousness of the officials.

    rangers did jack tonight…

  94. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Time to BOOGIE !!"...& Greg L. on

    Grachev is one of my favorites , I want him to score almost as much as I want Boogaard to score!!!

    GO RANGERSSSS!!! Its gonna take a miricle on Manhatten , it just too bad were in PHILTHY FILLY. Its only 1 game guys. We lost cuz our former players had a beef to settle tonight.

  95. Not one of Henrik’s best games, but still. Rangers took too many penalties, so they stopped doing anything. They should have just accepted the penalties and taken a few Flyers with them. Way too tentative. And Staal has not had a big game this season — Prospal can take his “A” back.

  96. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Time to BOOGIE !!"...& Greg L. on

    …another Frolov wrap-around …repeat…ect…and so on…

  97. christenson best forward for the rangers that is not saying much.

    the delzotto gift, the henrik gift, horrible effort.

    let fedetenko get cheap shotted by the thug carcillo.

  98. N.CountryNYRFan on

    what a bad game, bad officiatting, bad defense (MDZ, Staal), Avery invisible, and the Rangers somehow still look like a bunch of wuss’s even when then win two fights.

    Pathetic, why do we let teams take liberties with hitting our star players then we only go after there goons…start taking on their btter players that will send a bigger message.

  99. Roszival was actually hitting and crosschecking a few Flyers, yet the meek Girardi and Staal were constantly on the ice, as well as Del Zotto with his long passes to no one. Carp was right — Girardi and Staal are not good together. And it doesn’t matter how many penalties, it was lousy defense that lost this game.

  100. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Time to BOOGIE !!"...& Greg L. on

    We lost , all is still good . We wake up and prepare for the Devils. Its a long season so we just have to be ready for the next challenge.

  101. N.CountryNYRFan on

    with gabby out you would think Frolov and Fedentenko would step it up but NOOOO….they suck

  102. Carcillo got off easy. Those punches probably didn’t even give him an itch. He should have been jumped from behind and had his head pounded on the ice, like High School girls do these days.

    They’re all afraid of him. This team is scared.

    And this game proves that Booger’s can’t stop anything from happening. Embarrassing!

  103. N.CountryNYRFan on

    pathetic…this team just made me sick tonight and our coach needs to start coaching how can he keep MDZ out there all night making horrible plays

  104. Philly went to the finals last year. we didn’t even make the playoffs. we are still improving.

    I’m not too bummed out, but we did get thoroughly outplayed tonight.

  105. N.CountryNYRFan on

    i think Hank needs a new goalie coach, what is Billy Smith up too or Ron Hextall, he needs to toughen up

  106. N.CountryNYRFan on

    Carcillo should be suspended…but the Rangers needed to take care of things in the moment and take a cheap shot back

  107. N.CountryNYRFan on

    to me this is our worst lose this season….we looked liked a bunch of chumps…truly sickening

  108. Could it be that Keenan is the only MSG employee that is not a schill?

    or is he gonna get fired for not going to see Dolan’s band?

  109. N.CountryNYRFan on

    did you guys here what the refs answer was to Fedentenko about the non-call, he told Fedentenko he shouldn’t have ducked…..WTF!!!!! Thats like saying you shouldn’t be facing the boards so you won’t get boarded or you shouldn’t have been skating so you wouldn’t have gotten tripped…unbeleivable…that ref should be fired….no ref bias….bs

  110. whoever said this was less than fun, i watched about 3 minutes and i was bored to death. this is the flyers. our rival. these rival games are played with equal or less intensity than against any other team. did cally get hurt? or was the top line benched or something. why was boogaard out so much? im just going off your comments, but cally wouldve gotten some chances i would bet. hey greg, frolov did a wraparound??? man that guy is sneaky!! his repertoire is chock full of sweet dekes and shots. and he is smart employing that skating method. it suckers the opponent into adjusting their gameplan when he comes in all gary teh snail like. it throws them off. theres just too many weapons this guy has. he has so many but hes obviously saving them for the annual ranger playoff push. but greg, i have a feeling boogaard will not get 5 goals. he’ll still probably end up with more than frolov though. its funny when the rookie who only scored in 1 game still has more goals than the vet sniper.

  111. Shanahan knew how to talk to the refs — do Callahan and Staal ever do that? Drury certainly rarely does. Maybe Torts won’t let them.
    Remember playing Philly in 06 when Rucinsky counted off the score to Brashear in the penalty box? Rucinsky and Kasparaitis would take penalties to make a point. At least Orr and Hollweg tried — Boogard is a glider. No emotion at all tonight.

  112. N.CountryNYRFan on

    i’m sorry i still can’t get over that non-call and the refs response…what a fuggin shame

  113. Normally I would say it’s best for the Rangers to rise above the Flyers level of play, but they should’ve run Bobrovsky. I’m so tired of watching teams in the Atlantic run Hank. Enough. They need to start doling out some cheap shots against teams like the Flyers. Make them think twice about taking liberties with the goalie.

    Boogard did what he was paid to do tonight, which is beat the Carcillo out of the next toughest guy in the league. I’m fine with that scrap. Prust was our MVP tonight, though. Black eye and all. Go Rangers, get em next time.

  114. N.CountryNYRFan on

    can i change my answer to the poll question, Carp??

    I now HATE the Flyers more than the Devils!

  115. this is what happens when you have too many top 6 players all fighting for teh minutes. 2nd liners like boyle get thrown on the 3rd in favor of 1st liners like frolov. and when ya put elite snipers like fedotenko and christensen out there, its gonna teal time away from role players and 3rd liner grinders like gaborik. with all this talent gabby cant even get a spot on teh roster. what to do. but its a good problem to have. if prust gets on a scoring slump, you can always throw boogaard out there to put one in and get things rollin.

  116. NYR never has the balls to pull off something like that.

    Dublowsky and Boyle keep talking aboot how they would stick up for their teammates and gladly take the penalty doing so. HA! Where were they? They must not give two sh*t’s aboot Fedetenko.

    I bet the league wont even take a look at that hit. It’s a hit to the head, and he left his feet, so that should be an automatic suspension and/or fine.

    If it were up to me, I’d hang Carcillo with Hartnells hair, If they haven’t burned it yet

  117. It’s comical how bad Boogaard is at skating. His attempted hit on Meszaros with 3:00 minutes left was pathetic, he looked like a peewee skating there. He shows about as much emotion on the ice as he did for that build a bear segment they did with him.

  118. no offense, but wtf is boogaard doing at a build a bear segment anyway? i dont care if he shows no emotion at something like that. i dont care if he even speaks.ever. just hurt one of those cheese eatin philthy flyer bassturds!!

  119. N.CountryNYRFan on

    also where was our teams reaction to that cheap shot shove by Timmonen on Cally sending him into the boards head first, if you noticed Cally wasn’t his self after that…another great non-call

  120. Torts was reasonable. Liked that he said other players besides Prust should step up. And he wasn’t complaining about penalties, but about bad play.
    Staal and Girardi are old enough and well-paid enough now to take some responsibility for their poor play. They should be the first two to step it up.

  121. I knew the tough talk was all BS as soon as Cally was pushed into boards by Timmonen. Blah, blah, blah. Boogard makes me wanna cry. He is that ineffective.

    yeah really, Cally our leader of late gets shellacked and nobody gets back at Timmon…it’s just sad.

    This team has made me very upset tonight…I thought they would stick up for themselves/each other more this year…tonight was very disappointing.

    We better come out like wild beasts tommorrow against the Devils tommorrow and next time we play the Flyers we should just take runs at Carter, Bob, and Richards.

    yeah where is the fear the Boogeyman was supposed to strike in our opponents to help prevent cheap shots against us…what a waste of money…horrible…what a joke.

    ok i think i am done ranting tonight. Goodnight all and hopefully we’ll see a different team tommorrow and then we’ll all be in love with them again.

  126. sometimes Del Z thinks that #4 on his back means he is Bobby Orr. he sometimes tries to do too much with the puck. I agree with Torts when he benched him. it should not be longterm or anything like that. but he needs to learn now in his second season that he cannot skate thru men like kids in junior hockey.

    that goal was a backbreaker. it gave the flyers the lead, the momentum, and demoralized the Rangers
