It’s Go Time!


Half an hour late.

I see Versus is actually paying a little attention to the Rangers, actually acknowledging that there is another team playing against Ovechkin, er, I mean, Washington tonight. Though it did have to show us Ovechkin getting dressed.

I trust Eddie O to not make this the Alex Ovechkin show.

Not much news lineup wise. Boogaard will play with the cold or flu or whatever it is he has. Gilroy is prucha’d.

  1. Hey, I just saw CCCP. We didn’t wrestle in the aisle, but he said we could if I wanted to.

    He’s a character as you know.

    He asked me to tell CT Blueshirt that he’s in section 325, which is right above where I’m sitting, so I’m expecting some flying beer and food at some point.

    He also asked for Laurel.

    I don’t root, but I hope they WIN ONE FOR BLOGMAMA tonight.

  2. The only thing wrong with the overtime format is the fact that it’s 4v4. Hockey was meant to be played with FIVE skaters. Want to see change in the way games are played? Award THREE points for a regulation time win.

  3. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    you’d have to ask future mrs. C3 that question. he was ever the gentleman when we met!

  4. >>lmao, i feel sorry for beninati’s wife….

    I don’t! She chose him! I feel terrible for their children, though; they didn’t have a choice.

    Who let the dogs out!!?????

    WOOF WOOF!!!

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

  17. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    dan, same places as always… or…. good luck ;-)

  18. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    LMFAO MICKEY!!!!! omg this was the perfect time for this game, the past 2 weeks have been pretty carppy!

  19. yo carp. for every time you say the rangers just puck watch in front of the net, you got to give props to boyle for putting that guy on his behind! and for scoring a goal!

  20. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    BRIAN BOYLE!!! and it’s not the weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO HAPPY!!! gotta get some skittles and cool ranch doritos for Saturday!

  21. what did I tell you about Girardi and Staal together? They have had two shifts and Lundqvist has had to make two great saves.

  22. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Ovetchicken tonight!!"..& Greg L. on

    ORR , WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE!!!! Its a hockey game dude!!!!!


    Taken out thier best Dman!!!! WTG DUBI!!!!!!

  23. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    Dubi’s adding to his early season legend… he wants to be a power forward lol

  24. The result of the fight doesn’t really matter. Dubi was sending a message.

    Let’s hope it’s received.

  25. Marc Staal looks awful. he allowed about 6 close-in shots in just a few seconds while he just stood around watching Caps players attack the net.

  26. Dublowsky took out one of their worst defensive d-men. There’s a reason he didn’t make Team Canada.

    Meaningless fight. He should be on the ice, not in the box. Unless he’s fighting OV, Semin-Slapper, or Backstrom.

  27. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    hmmmmmmmm i may have to go back to game center live next season! home or away broadcast… niiiiiiiiiiiice

  28. Since Boogaard is sick, I saw put him near Oveckin and have him sneeze on him. Repeatedly.

  29. And the penalty is on Boyle?????????????????????????????????

    What about what that guy did to Zotto??????????????????????

  30. DZ wanted no part of that. His BFF coming to his aid, gotta love it.

    Boys are feisty tonight.

  31. Alright, the crowd is chanting ass…. Come on fans, jump on the ice and charge a referee. Hurt somebody. Get your money’s worth!

  32. man!!! i’m all Carped up!!!

    been dropping comments on the last post and then noticed
    why am i the only one posting.


  33. James G – I heard about your love of McRibs. So I went out and got 5 McRibs last night and practically inhaled them in 10 minutes. Good stuff!

  34. Wow. A penalty on them.

    “The Rangers will have the advantage” says Beninass

    No, we dont have the advantage. We should be on a power play up 1-0 right now. Unfortunately, we got scrizzle screwed as usual

  35. Dubinsky just got a big ovation from his teammates upon getting out of the penalty box. I don’t have a comment on that.

  36. anyway Christensen didn’t deserve the penalty
    and Edzo Saidzo
    he’s probably in Chateau BowWow

  37. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    OMG, boudreau looks like he’s being strangled by his necktie
    someone stick a pin in him… Violet, you’re turning violet

  38. Joekuh - EC Fan Club President on

    LMAOOOO @ orr talking about the “girl” throwing underhill in the air in the wiki pic

  39. Two things I’ve learned so far,

    1-Dubi can’t fight, need to learn big time and
    2-The Caps are a very talented team, Lundvqvist needs to stand on his head if the rangers have a chance.

  40. a 5 on 3 for us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  41. Hangin in Lin- still at work been here since 5am.

    Tiki- good stuff. Had one for lunch. Getting kinda concerned though- I seem to be winded while im just sitting watching tv lol all things in moderation right?

    Missed the first 10 minutes here. What’d Dubi take the penalty for?

  42. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on


    That’s my Flavah!

  43. FLAVAAAAAAAAAH! few more goals he’ll activate a bonus in his contract and be able to buy Lin her engagement ring :P

  44. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Ovetchicken tonight!!"..& Greg L. on

    ohhh ohhh ohhh hey!!! hey!!! hey!!! hey!! hey!!!!!!!!!

  45. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    lmao James!!!!!!!!!!!! at this point he could just put a marshmallow heart on my finger!

  46. Joekuh - EC Fan Club President on

    LOL @ Henrik making the header save on that 2 on 1. Like the chippiness in this game. LMAO @ the drill sargeant psychiatrist. LOVE that commercial!

    PS Eminger. PLEASE dont go for the big hit tonight in the offensive zone. PLEASE.

  47. I couldn’t do it anymore…Beninati and Olczyk talking about handing out 10 minute penalties and the way they completely ignored the Avery penalty (BTW – what did he do???) sealed the deal for me…I grabbed the radio broadcast off the NYR website, but its a good 10 seconds off of TV. Anyone have a place to listen that might be a bit closer on sync for the TV?

  48. Joekuh - EC Fan Club President on

    Teek i think Avery gave it to the refs after that EC call. That would be my 1st guess.

  49. Easy to understand the officiating.

    OV on Caps…Caps v. Rangers…call penalties against Rangers. Repeat.

  50. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    neither do they James lol

    Brian Boyle finally learned how to use his big body! ;-)

  51. James G – The McRibs are excellent! Everything in moderation, haha!

    It’s time all of you understand the officiating in this league. Two words.


  52. Joekuh - EC Fan Club President on

    Bradley put it right into his body. Lucky save to be honest, but I’ll take it.

  53. you think one of these days
    we should make the mentioning of
    “Edzo” a drinking game.

    hear an “Edzo”
    do a shot

    winner makes it through the game
    and able to type in a full sentence, spelled correctly.

    prize. bragging rights!!

  54. Joekuh - EC Fan Club President on

    Great effort Fro to keep our last chance alive. Keep up the hard work and the goals will come.

  55. Good period. Standing up for each other. Caps are playing pretty lose in their end, got to put more pressure.

  56. damn that Due Date commercial

    all this time i was getting ready to
    see the movie for its suspense-filled
    scenario of whether husband makes it
    cross country for his wife’s birthing process.

  57. Joekuh - EC Fan Club President on

    jpg i think hendrick went knee to knee on eminger. Sauer didn’t like it. they wrestled a little bit. refs say sauer jumped in. extra 2 to him. these refs have seriously sucked tonight. Boyle 2, Refs 1. Noah-tenko, you have the officiating down right LOL

  58. The refs have called some fathom calls against the rangers this year and the one where the ranger player didn’t touch him in the corner, the cap player lost his edge and fell to the ice.

  59. Joekuh - EC Fan Club President on

    Man if the next 2 periods are as good as this one, this will be one talked about for a while. REALLY liked the physicality in the 1st.

  60. Blue Seat Horror on

    jpg, if the “Edzo” drinking game is played when PJ Maguire is there is could be lethal. Plus your full sentence, spelled correctly is unfair to greg.

  61. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Ovetchicken tonight!!"..& Greg L. on

    I like our chances guys. Im feeling perty good ’bout this game. 3 fights and more to come. Hanks Elite-ing it up again tonight. The Caps have bigger forwards but ours have more heart. We work harder . We want this win and we want it badly.

    More scoring to come by both teams!!!!

    Hang on to yer hat and tuck the little ones in bed. The game could be a “blood bath” and goals will be aplenty!!We win tonight at any cost.

  62. Blue Seat Horror on

    Ha Orr, you’re right about Boyle wanting some Soto. I liked how he mentioned working out in the gym. You could tell he wanted to add “with my shirt off.”

  63. Staal Wart

    I can point to a well officiated game.

    Rangers Devils a week ago. Rangers only got 1 penalty called against them. A fair game. Wish we had 81 more games like that.

  64. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Ovetchicken tonight!!"..& Greg L. on

    GO BONEHEADS!!!!!!!!!


    ITS ALL ‘BOUT the Rangers OLGA!!!!! You stay here girl , we’ll take good care of ya over here in Rangerland!!!!!

  65. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " In Prust we trust!!!"..& Greg L. on


    #1 BOOGAARD!!!

    #2 PRUST!!!

    #3 Avery!!!!!

  66. Joekuh - EC Fan Club President on

    speaking of bench minors, anyone remember the hawks game a couple years ago when they had about 4 5 on 3’s and renney came out on the ice screamin at the refs when they finally scored on one?

  67. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " In Prust we trust!!!"..& Greg L. on

    BOOOOOOOOO GAME 82!!!!!!! In a shoot out!!!!???? Aw come on!!!! BOOOOOOOOOO Flyers!!!!!

    GO OUR GUYS!!!!

    Rangers rule and Caps drool!!!!!

  68. I think so too, ORR, but I’m not sure… He dropped a few f- bombs right on the screen lol

  69. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " In Prust we trust!!!"..& Greg L. on

    I WANNA “dubi-kiss” Dubi!!!!! ….ohh ummm did I spout that out loud!!?? I got Cr9 there for a min. My bad.

    Go Rangersssss!!! Dubinsky could hold out for more $$ now Orr, hahahahaaha thats “our” boy Dubi!!!!!

  70. I’m not worried aboot Dublowsky anymore. I’m worried aboot Boyle. He might sign with a Canadian team to be close to that old lady who taught him how to skate, and apparently how to play hockey, and pickup women…..

    And sing songs.

  71. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " In Prust we trust!!!"..& Greg L. on

    Hahaa Linda …ah it was kinda bad huh? Too funny!!!

  72. Joekuh - EC Fan Club President on

    LOL @ greg going cr9 for a minute. whoever mentioned callahan, do it again. he finally got a shot tonight.

  73. Ovechkin is like a caveman, I swear. I’m surprised he speaks a language, instead of grunts.

    Aww, crap. BOOO.



    IVE LOST THE BET WITH GREG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  75. Joekuh - EC Fan Club President on

    ahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOGGEYMAN!!!!

  76. there’s your man on the pp point!!
    probably keeps the puck in the zone about as good as Rozy

    think one of his teammates got the puck for him?

  77. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    i am pissin my pants ! I knew he was gonna score……. it was like in slow motion! AWESOME!


    What a rip shot!!!!!!!!! BOOGALOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  79. i’m getting tired of hearing how great goalie coach Benoit Allaire
    is when Hank is still leaving too much on the short side again and again

  80. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " BOOGAARD , BOOM!!!"..& Greg L. on


    I love Boogaard.

    I love the Rangers.

    I love all youseeeeeeeeee!!!

  81. Whatever has gotten into the boys tonight, Torts needs to bottle up and give it to them before every game.

  82. Joekuh - EC Fan Club President on

    On that Boogaard goal, the D man bailed out and missed the puck BECAUSE of boogey coming for him.

  83. Tank The Season on

    That goal by Boogaard was sick. I wonder how hard he shot that puck. He needs to do that at every opportunity.

  84. greg- u deserved that big guy!!! unreal goal. big steve larmer-esque slapper!!!

    but stepan and of course frolov cant score on the subsesquent shift. frolov is almost redden like with his slow deliberate moves around teh net and hes always late to the play. get him in hartford too.

  85. I just went upstairs to make sure I’m in the right place….mrs is still there. I’m not dreaming. That was some shot too

  86. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " BOOGAARD , BOOM!!!"..& Greg L. on

    Tiki , saweeeeeeeeeet!!!

    Its all ’bout Boogaard feeling good , the Rangers feeling good.


  87. i just have that uneasy feeling like that back n forth game last year with teh caps. exciting but nervewracking

  88. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    here’s a quote from Jim of Blueshirt Banter:

    “Here is your advanced stat of the evening, courtesy of George Ays….No one shorter than 6’7″ has scored for the Rangers tonight”

  89. of course, the refs didn’t call the trip in their zone.
    don’t know which Ranger went flying.

  90. Greg with your winnings you need to pay for CCCP and I to go to games the rest of the year it’ll pay off when Boog gets his hat trick.

  91. Blue Seat Horror on

    Somebody needs to tell DelZotto that people actually study tape on how you play and that he needs to come up with a new outlet pass.

  92. so no one pays attention to man coming down the lane.
    thanks Prust
    Hank should get an assist for that rebound

  93. i’ll be back later. maybe the rangers man up i dont get it. is this torts fault? cuz they do it constantly

  94. i dont even feel the least bit good that all of you are seeing what’s going on. i feel sick that is never going to change without some impetus.

  95. Fedotenko was basically pushed into the net. And I think this goes without saying but Versus’ coverage is absolutely miserable. I love how every goal is a tally. Like they’re afraid to say the word goal.

  96. Torts TransalationL: our defense sucks, the refs are a complete joke why do we have to be on versus right now…im not in the mood for a friggin interview right now

  97. this isnt strange officiating. this is expected officiating. cheat us without making it look too obvious – some of the time, they fail on the not making it look obvious part. Tonight’s been obvious.

  98. Olga Folkyerself on

    It’s like watching a Titanic Movie. No matter what happens we’re going to end up sitting on the bottom.

  99. cr9- you are right. i cannot stand the refs teh last 2 games. it is ruining teh game for me. i dont even wanna watch it knowing they are screwing us constantly. our defense is total crap, but we scored that goal. that is utterly frustrating

  100. Joekuh - EC Fan Club President on

    I just remembered to mention, anyone notice Boyle clear the net once in the 1st? wicky, there’s your man!!!!

  101. Joekuh - EC Fan Club President on

    Ok guys, SOMEONE has to go to the front. can’t have 3 ppl behind the goal line.

  102. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    Brian,that’s because they are obsessed with being cute and using their buzzwords… lame lame lame… like TILT… another annoying buzzword for game… sigh

  103. Van Massenhoven, McCreary, Auger, Fraser, the list goes on.

    I cant watch this crap anymore. It’s too many times we get cheated and nobody on the Rangers stands up and says anything. Not Jaromir, not Drury, not Torts, not Renney, not Avery.

    Idiot Avery will talk about sloppy seconds, but not corrupt referees. Idiot Jaromir will talk about Presidents of the US and US policy, but not corrupt referees.

  104. umm, if Dubi is attempting a goatee, I would advise against it. Not only does it look awful, but it’ll take him over a year to accomplish it

  105. Joekuh - EC Fan Club President on

    lmao @ someone screaming WTFedotenko thinking it was penalty for that Ovechkin hit

  106. Good game so far, huh? I picked it up a bit into the second period.

    What happened to Emrick on Versus? No matter if you dislike him, you have to agree he’s better than Beninati, especially for a Caps game.

  107. Dublowsky reminds me of Bud Bundy. He tried to grow a beard on Married With Children, and Peggy and Kelly Bundy would always tell him to wash his face, cause he “has mud on his face”. Half assed beard.

  108. orr- u just feel it its one of those games like teh carolina game or actually like last years 5-4 loss. its almost the same game everytime we play them here. we are getting chances though which is really good. we can score, unless frolov or fedotenko shoot it. its funny, both of those guys have like 1 goal and both had goals disallowed in consecutive games. it couldve got both of them going offensively.

  109. If Versus games were weekend games I seriously would try a drinking game involving any made up buzz term to get the average fan involved in this game.

  110. Amaretto is GOOD. Really good. Combine with sour mix and yummy!

    So true, Linda. Where IS Sally btw?

  111. the 6-5 loss i mean. the one where we were up 5-3 in teh 3rd. had our usual 3rd period meltdown and hank couldnt stop a beach ball either. hope he doesnt let in any more.

  112. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    you know Sally, always busy with school. I can’t wait until she’s on winter break, spring break, and then graduation lol

  113. jpg – The cut on Avery’s nose is from a high stick the other day. A high stick and 4 minute penalty that went uncalled.

  114. Forget about violence to make a statement. I have a better idea, for when we’re not at MSG. When we’re getting cheated by referees, which is practically every game, Torts ought to just pull our players off the ice and refuse to play unless the refs act fairly. If they choose not to, Torts pulls them off the ice and forfeits. Costs the fans at the road arena their money and the excitement of seeing a game.

  115. Joekuh - EC Fan Club President on

    no no Beninati, Boogey didn’t just beat Neuvirth, he “PIERCED” him.

  116. AA was doing pretty good a shift or two ago.
    Cally and Dubi not so much
    but then again Dubi still messed up from his bout in the first period

  117. N.CountryNYRFan on

    yeah it looked like a real go first period. Glad I was able to at least see the Boogers goal.

  118. Orr, they’ve carried the team so far this season, I think they are allowed a quiet night. Plus, they are matched up against Ovechkin’s line, I wouldn’t be surprised if they were concentrating more on defense.

  119. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    Tiki, i have a feeling there’d be some big fines for that from buttman and his henchmen

  120. N.CountryNYRFan on

    from the little I saw of the first, Boyles having a great game and I loved how Sauer stuck up for his teammate

  121. Joekuh - EC Fan Club President on

    Definitely an entertaining game. We’ve gotta stop with letting them get that up the middle break though. Good play by rozi to stop it, then spring EC…..sigh, cmon EC we need something good tonight!

  122. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    it would definitely make a statement Tiki!!! i wonder if Torts has the testicular fortitude to do it!

  123. shattenkirk- i am totally with ya bud. that felt like a whole game just in that god i just want a win. a home win. fans deserve it.

  124. Joekuh - EC Fan Club President on

    I like our chances in the 3rd. Just need one good rush, and concentrate on D.

  125. N.CountryNYRFan on

    beth…being tied against the Craps ain’t too bad, LQ will need to stand on his head and not give up a softie, and Boyle needs the trick.

    Boyle or Stepan with the game winner :)

  126. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    Joekuh, they do make lots of shovel passes to get out of the neutral zone and into the offensive zone..

  127. Blue Seat Horror on

    Roszival’s still in my chateau bow-bow. He owes me 3 good plays. A goal will break even, but his play has been poor.

    Caps d is pretty bad if they have a “face full of forecheck.” Need to make the forecheck count.

    Torts is going to save Boogaard for 1 shift in the 3rd so he can store his energy and get another breakaway. With all the weight I’m surprised his stick didn’t break and pierce Neuvert.

    Good breakdown by Aaron Ward.

  128. Torts doesnt have the cojones. That’s why it’s up to our captain upon his return. Captain not Courageous. Captain Cordial. Craptain Dru!

  129. N.CountryNYRFan on

    i’ve said it before but I really like the play of Sauer, he is a solid d-man and doesn’t hurt this team at all, he knows when to be physical, when to jump up in the play and makes the smart pass

  130. ugghhh, just watched the erskine goal. hank, cant u stay up???

    beth, i think we win this. weve been getting shots and chances. we gotta get more than cycling going though. were doin well in that area but every shot neuvirth faces, he lets up a juicy rebound. gotta just blast em from anywhere really. i think either boyle gets a hatty or one of the higgins clones(frolov,feds,avery and stepan )get one. actually, avery hasnt had teh chances the other 3 have had lately, but he still needs to score. hes been kinda quiet lately

  131. They HAVE TO stay out of the box in the third. The Caps PP scares living bejeezus outta me, much like having Boogaard skating down the wing towards a wee little d-man.

  132. Wait a second…Boogart with the bug, isn’t he? It’s viral. That’s why he scored. Someone needs to tell him to kiss Frolov. On the mouth, while he is still contagious.

  133. N.CountryNYRFan on

    Larmer!!!! Where??? He was one of my favorites. Does anybody else remember he signature breakaway move?

    He would just skate straight in and rip a slapper. I remember when he did that on a penalty shot in Chicago against Eddie (the drunk) Belfour and scored it was awesome.

    I used a Larmer Sherwood5030 Featherlite stick for years.

  134. Blue Seat Horror on

    Mickey, I wouldn’t count on the Rangers staying out of the box with moustacheod villian #2 reffing.

  135. Edmonton is down 1-7? Looks like Tom Renney will soon be available to be the Rangers PR guy. He knows how to talk to the media.

  136. Blue Seat Horror on

    I think VanMoustachenhoven likes irony. If the Capitals win tonight it’s going to be because Knuble plows through Hank and knocks both goaltender and puck into the net.

  137. oh god, Buffalo on Thursday. Please to get the MSG feed. I don’t think my ears could stand Beninati and Jeanneart in back to back games.

  138. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    well Mickey, we had to hear that dude murder the National Anthem tonight, then beninobby

  139. Blue Seat Horror on

    Why does it seem like the defense is parting like the red sea tonight? Did Hank sleep with one of their wives?

  140. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    Carpy, I hope i get to go to a game that you’re at! I’d hope that the first time we met would NOT be at my wedding party lol!!!

  141. Linda, it’s a near go. Got an email back from my friend earlier today that said she’d love to have me come for a visit and the game. Just need to firm things up with her and I’ll know more.

  142. Shattenkirk, I was thinking the same thing. Told some of the writers I’m going to start calling him Christopher Frolov. Or Ales.

  143. Eureka! We just found out what Dubinsky is doing, he’s taking part in Movember. Only stealthily.

  144. you know Rozy has been pretty good for much
    of the game
    but when he makes a mistake
    boy does it come back to bite him.

    and, of course, no one paying attention
    to someone coming down the middle
    and Hank just getting pasted.

    sheesh!! it gets old.

  145. Blue Seat Horror on

    Ahem. Repost:

    Blue Seat Horror says:
    November 9, 2010 at 9:06 pm

    Roszival will cost them this game.

    I’ve never wished anyone to be injured…but I’m getting close.

  146. Blue Seat Horror on

    The best thing is that after losing the puck Roszival just sits there behind the net. And by the way he has NOT has a good game. I count at least 3 critical giveaways.

  147. what is the brilliant defensive play of
    shooting the puck into the opposing player?

    it seems to be very popular among
    Rangers players.

  148. Orr – I admit, you were right, i was wrong. i thought ruslan could be a valuable addition to the team or a trade asset. he’s neither.

  149. If saying Rozsival sucks isn’t kicking a dead horse, then what is? It will never be addressed either!

  150. Blue Seat Horror on

    Beninobby’s hitting his stride. Got a little swagger now that his Caps have a lead.

    Somebody said this before, and I agree. I feel sorry for his wife:

    Beninobby: Honey I’m feeling like a punster and I know you washed your hair last night, so how ’bout it.
    Wife: I suppose I have to.
    Beninobby: Can we-
    Wife: We’re not playing face full of forecheck ever again!

  151. It must be nice to have several scoring threats on one team. Meanwhile, Rangers fans desperately hope for a Brian Boyle hat trick.

  152. Yeah, so far a lot of which I’ve said has come true. Fedetenko sucks, as I’ve predicted, Frolov sucks, as I’ve predicted, and the savior MZA started in Hartford.

    I also said NYR would miss the playoffs, so you guys should all worry.

  153. lmao@ Joekuh. Tis a very slimmed down Sant Claus, if it is. Or maybe it’s Dasher. It IS Christmas time already.

  154. N.CountryNYRFan on

    put Booger out there his confidence has to be sky high after scoring tonight…he can do it again

  155. Callahan “got tangled up with Kimmo Timmonen”

    Uhhh, NO! He didnt get tangled up with. He got thrown head first into the boards.

  156. Olga Folkyerself on

    As the sea closes over the stern of the Titanic, you begin to realize that it couldn’t have ended any other way…

  157. Blue Seat Horror on

    Don’t know why Dubi (9-4) didn’t take the o-zone faceoff instead of Artie (2-8). Tortorella really sticks his head on the sand at the worst moments. Idiot.

  158. What happened to the team from the first two periods? They were fun, they were creating offense, they were sticking up for each other. The team from the third was like a bad trip back to the Renney years.

  159. They couldn’t generate anything 6 on 5. Not enough game breakers. Back to .500. Would love to hear what Torts is going to say.

  160. Shattenkirk Del Headzo on

    Carp – can’t take credit for Friggins by myself – it was a bonehead group effort!

    Sire Father!

  161. Tank The Season on

    Can’t get too up or too down, it’s too early.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- this team would NOT have a .500 record had Gaborik been hurt for the same span last year. We are getting goals by Dubinsky, Callahan, and Boyle which would not have happened a year ago.

    Christensen is gonna find his way off the roster and if Stepan can’t hack it with Gaborik then he should be sent down to get his confidence up.

    Rozsival is a liability.

  162. same old fu–in story.

    frolov did not clear the puck on the 3rd goal, dz and roszival do the behind the net crap and bullseye.

    frolov friigin sucks he has done zero. the guy cannot take a wrist shot.

    fedetenko cannot even get a shot on net.

    btw the officials suck like usual.. the chrostenson tripping double minor bullsh-t.

    snd the sauer extra 2 after the capital guy stuck his knee out, but listening to the announcers you would think differently.

    1 and 4 after being tied going into the 3rd.

    todd white friigin sucks… again del zotto is an idiot with his back pass crap in a tie game.

    what is so complicated about getting it out of the ZONE?????

  163. Blue Seat Horror on

    If Gilroy’s playing for DZ, can we bring up Valentenko for Roszival? #33 makes me lose MY confidence. Can only imagine what he does to the team.

  164. Why are the Rangers unable to chase down a puck? If they’re not going to chase it down, then don’t shoot it in. But they can’t carry it in either. Better offense than last year, but still not good enough.

  165. Blue Seat Horror on

    Why the hell is Roszival practically standing, STANDING BEHIND the net on the third Caps goal? He is such goat Semin.

  166. MDZ has always had shaky defensive play, but his offensive skills have been pretty weak so far this season. His breakout passes and decision making have been atrocious.

  167. And the game was lost by….Lundqvist.

    And as long as he persists in dropping to his knees before the shooter even sets his shot, they will cook his goose over his shoulder.

    It is this obstinacy in not making an effort to perfect the stand and face the shooter technique ,with the pads together, (a time honored technique by the way), he will always be a good goaltender instead of a great one.

    It is the single most outstanding flaw in his game, even worse than his tendency to give away rebounds.

    Every time I think I’ve seen an atrocious call by the refs, they out do themselves.

  168. orr

    why do you even post? you comments are moronic…sit henrik.. the erskine goal was a good shot…

    put in biron becuase obviously he is better!!!!!

    i wonder if orr is part of the love fighting crowd. boogard scored a goal on a moronic shot, he reached his quota for the 4 years. he does absolutley nothing to help the team….

    the idea that there is a roll for the boogard is ludicrous, play him against hte flyers and some other caveman team and that is it.

    so christenson is who he is a skilled woosie, frolov is slower then crap and cannot shoot, and fedetenko is a nothing…..white totally sucks he is small, and can’t skate…..

  169. Tank The Season on

    Oh and I think Frolov and Fedotenko should watch one from the press box, no reason not to give Zuccarello a callup for the next game.

    EC sucks.

  170. Shattenkirk Del Headzo on

    Fran – agreed. You’d think Benoit balls Allaire would address that first before other things.

    Sire Father!

  171. Blue Seat Horror on

    One good thing about the game being on versus…we didn’t have to hear about the disallowed goal ad nauseum.

  172. I think I’m going to leave you guys for tonight. Try not to kill each other. And the team. Just try to realize who they played, how they played and who we are missing. Someone said it- last year we would be 5 games below .500

  173. The goal by Erskine was not a good shot. It only appears that way because of the result. That goal cannot be allowed. Bottom line.

    No player in LQ’s line of sight. A guy Erskine who only has 7 career goals. Cant allow that. Not a good shot. A good result for him, though.

  174. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    you said it Mickey.

    I thought if they could keep it tied until late in the 3rd, that we’d get a fluky goal and win. I was pretty optimistic tonight after seeing the first!

    good point blue, but I’m sure Joe will be all over it on the pregame for the next game lol

  175. Stuart, you do realize that New Yorkers are known for sarcasm, right?

    And yeah, Hank should have been pulled after letting Erskine score. That wasn’t a good shot, that was just Hank being his usual self, never learning his lesson.

    LMAO! Good shot. You wouldn’t know a good shot if it raped your eye socket.

  176. N.CountryNYRFan on

    trying to think positive here, but hopefully we have a strong second half to the season if:

    1. Gaborik comes back and stays healthy
    2. Drury takes Whites or EC spoke which is a plus
    3. Prospal come back and can center Gaborik and Frolov and the line clicks
    4. defense stops sucking
    5. Henrik stops letting in a soft goal every game
    6. Aves is Aves and plays with controlled edge
    7. Torts learns to coach

    then maybe just maybe we make the playoffs

  177. Blue Seat Horror on

    I know what you mean Mickey, it’s just tough when it seems like we’re more up for the game than the team on the ice.

    I can forgive this team much quicker than last year’s team because they are trying miles harder this year. They are obviously outclassed and outcoached, but most of the players are trying their best and coming up with some good effort. Good on Boyle for the career season he’s having.

  178. Tiki- agree, stoppable shot. It didn’t lose us the game. MDZ’s pass behind the net to Roszival who was under the pressure immediately, did

  179. N.CountryNYRFan on

    what is Aaron Ward smoking he keeps saying the rangers are a very potent team. Even with Gaborik in the line up I wouldn’t call us a very potent team

  180. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    well put Blue. We kept saying we’d rather lose with ‘the kids’.. well, we’re watching that now. We’re watching our core guys become a team, watching our young guys get the experience. I like the effort, I like how, most nights, they don’t give up. Guys like Boyle and Prust, who both worked hard in the offseason to improve. Dubi coming into his own, Cally being Cally…AA maturing…the education of Stepan..and on and on. Much more optimistic this season than last. Things have a way of working out, sometimes we just have to wait a bit to see the rewards of the labor.

  181. Shattenkirk Del Headzo on

    N.CountryNYRFan says:

    “2. Drury takes Whites or EC spoke (spot?) which is a plus”

    Thiis phrase will never be uttered again on this blog!

  182. Blue Seat Horror on

    ilb, don’t forget that the Rangers just can’t bury the goals they need to be burying. Too many open shots dinged off the crossbar or wide. Need a little more grace under pressure.

    I was watching the Coyotes-Wings game last night, specifically Yandle’s goal, thinking that there was not one currently healthy player on the Rangers who wouldn’t have blown that shot.

  183. >>has Todd White played any games yet this season

    No, White hasn’t had a chance to play yet; he’s still stuck on Rice.

  184. N.CountryNYRFan on

    well at least Drury can kill on the pk and block shots. and yes i meant spot.

    Linda nice post, I agree.

  185. Blue Seat Horror on

    Here here, Linda. I wish there were even a few more kids up to replace a few of the ineffective rusty old vets, but I’ll take what I can get.

  186. I’d take Dreary over EC and/or White any day of the week. Those two are useless.


    All useless. Don’t be fooled by Booger. Clearly he must have caught some kind of scoring disease from some star player. It will wear off soon.

  187. Well said, Linda. That effort Aline will go a long way. Washington is going to seriously contend for the cup this year. Just look who we are dressing, folks. And they could’ve just win this game too. I’m willing to wait and I’m sure the wins will come. To me, this is the best sustained effort this team produced in years.

  188. Czechthemout!!!! on

    Frolov is terrible! I’ve watched his play with the Kings for some time. He has never looked this bad. He is clearly not in the shape he should be.

    EC is another terrible player. If he was any good, do you think he would be put on waivers by three teams?

    Fedetenko is another bum who got his deal and now he’s done his job. Stepan will never develop playing with these two losers.

    Blowzy is not totally at fault on that goal. Shmolov failed to clear an easy puck. Mdz made a dumb pass and blowzy just stood there, waiting for the puck to come to him.

    on a side note, I am really getting ticked off at Mdz. His home run pass crap is predictable now that opponents are just waiting for it to come to them.

    Asa team, the biggest problem they have against a team like the Caps is that they take too long to decide what todo with the puck. Torts needs to work on this fast.

  189. Blue Seat Horror on

    Well, N. Country, Drury blocks shots, yes, but I don’t think he does it very well, given how often he gets injured doing it. :-)

  190. wonder if del zotto didn’t make the team last year and spent a season in hartford, if he’d be a lil more rounded/better of a player.

  191. MZA will come up when he’s tall enough to ride this roller coaster of a mess. You know like those cardboard cutouts they have at Six Flags or some amusement park that says “you have to be this tall to ride”? Maybe he can use Avery’s stilleto heels to fool the staff.

  192. Blue Seat Horror on

    miked, not to ruin your buzz, but the trick came against the Sound Tigers…one of the few teams that are worse then the Whalepack so far…in a 7-1 game. Not saying it wasn’t a nice feat, but just saying…

  193. Something tells if MZA comes up and doesn’t score in two consecutive games, someone will call him Shmucarello and ask for his head to be sent back to Swedish league. Separately from his body.

  194. Blue and Linda, well said on both your parts. We wanted this team, this very young team that is just not as skilled as the Caps or the Pens or anyone of the other top teams in the league, and well, we’re going to have nights like this. Nights where they play their collective behinds off and come up just short. Having Gaboirk tonight might have turned the game in their favor and having him later on in the year may very well win this team games they wouldn’t win without him in the lineup. At the same time, they are going to struggle and make mistakes and I, for one, am OK with. I like that I am seeing them being a team, sticking up for each other and growing together. I like seeing ‘the young core’ that Torts has talked about endlessly come into their own as players and as leaders. The future is bright, even if it hurts a little bit when they lose a game like this.

  195. N.CountryNYRFan on

    i’m sorry its hard to hear, but Drury will make this current team better when he is healthy. I’m not saying him alone is going to turn things around.

  196. Blue Seat Horror on

    Wow, it’s not just the Rangers. Anybody see Joni Pitkanen nail the Edmonton Oiler in the mouth with the stick, leaving his jersey bloody…and not receive a penalty.

  197. LindaCalPrustBoylahan on

    Blue, the officiating gets worse every freakin season. They make it up as they go along.

  198. standard ranger crap, send down the 22 kennedy and keep white up. kennedy is lower cost and to bring him up will have to clear waivers while who the hell would want white. a small issue but just shows how the rangers are fools and make bad moves. the ood thing on all the players people seem to dislike; frolov, ec, fedetenko, white etc. the yall have 1 yr deals. next year roszival will be in his last year.

    i like the fight and toughness of this team, just not enough scoring and skill. last 90 seconds could not even get in the zone, 2 man PP scored after the first guy got on the ice. also like the age of this team…avery is not that good, and prust also. play hard etc but soft on the puck in there own zone(both give up tons of turnovers) and both cannot score.

    you need guys to score 15 goals not 5…..
