It’s Go Time!


Me, I’m freezing my tail off at a state football semifinal double-header.

According to our buddy Andrew Gross, Lundqvist starts in goal tonight, and Derek Stepan starts at center on the No. 1 line with Marian Gaborik and Alex Frolov, where he was effective in the third period against Boston Wednesday.

That mean Erik Christensen centers the fourth line, between Sean Avery and either Derek Boogaard or Todd White. John Tortorella said it will be a game-time decision which will play and which will be prucha’d. Well, he didn’t say “prucha’d.” But you know what he means.

  7. There are a lot of similarities in Dubinsky’s style to Jagr… It’s quite amazing to see it develop… and will be interesting to see over the next couple of years exactly how far he takes his talents.

  10. haha Spiderpig. Tim Kennedy is the guy we’ll probably never see in a Rangers uniform, thanks to the decision to keep Todd AHL White lol

  11. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    miked, i guess the is that veetle thingie you dont want, eh? you need to RIOT

  12. Why are we hearing constantly about Shattenkirk???

    Is he on the Rangers???

    Who gives a Shit about Shattenkirk!

  13. johnny lost his walker on


    Delayed response…

    Breasts and thighs…Yes
    Drumsticks and wings…Not so much.

  14. They looked much better during the second part. Once they figured out they needed to play physical and stop stick checking. Stepan looked good so far with Gaborik…

  15. Blue Seat Horror on

    Ha! Carolina tied Pisstburgh in the last minute to send the game to OT! The good Jokinen tied it.

  16. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " LETS GO RANGERS!!!"...& Greg L. on

    Gaborik can start an EXPLOSION!!!! Then all holey hellz gonna break loose folks!!!

    A Goalapalooooza will be in session and we show these bums from Colorado that the Rangers mean bizness!!! A Dubinsky pass or goal could be the ticket here too!!!

    Go Rangerssssss!!!!!!

  17. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " LETS GO RANGERS!!!"...& Greg L. on

    2 pts baby!!!! We neeed points. Points. and yes , points!!

    BTW we need the 2 points folks … no and, ifs or buts.

  18. Blue Seat Horror on

    Whalepack won 5-2 tonight! 2 goals for Kolarik, 1 for Zuccarello, 1 for Redden, 1 for Soryal. Weise is back and he dropped the gloves.

  19. N.CountryNYRFan on

    just got home, game is blacked out for me tonight, anybody have any links to the game that are working.

  20. how many goals did Joe Micheletti score for the Avalanche?

    Im gonnna go with 0, for his zero personality and his zero talent.

  21. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " LETS GO RANGERS!!!"...& Greg L. on

    Boys are lookin great Mickey!!! Sit down ,have a drink and relax …cuz ya made it just in time.

  22. It was ilb…just saying that Stewart made a hell of a play, and after that mistake there wasn’t much MDZ could do to stop him…Not sure if MDZ wins that battle if he’s in position anyway…

  23. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " LETS GO RANGERS!!!"...& Greg L. on

    What a bunch of garbage , don’t worry guys …The Aves cant play defense.

  24. Tank The Season on

    We can’t get any pressure going this game.

    This team is at least a year and another infusion of top end UFA talent away from contention.

  25. DZ is playing confidently, but badly. Repeating the same mistakes over and over again. He needs to be taken off the PP for a while.

  26. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    Mako, i LOVED that growl, it was freakin hilarious

    WOW, this is pure suckage tonight so far

  27. Blue Seat Horror on

    I think it’s hilarious that Avery and Christensen are on the same line. I can see Avery setting Fredo up with bad passes that expose him to getting flattened.

  28. Blue Seat Horror on

    Must be the altitude.

    I just thought of a new incentive program. Whoever plays the worst has to sit next to Micheletti on the plane ride.

  29. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    holy shattenkirk! i’m out… got too many issues i’m dealing with to watch this mess

  30. Don’t beat yourselves up. This team is no better than last year and they didn’t make the playoffs and there probably won’t make the playoffs again unless there are some drastic changes.

  31. Del Zotto is a minus 4 tonight. Ouch.

    I wouldn;t mind him sitting a game or two when Rozy comes back.

  32. Tank The Season on

    Del Zotto is doggin’ it this season. It’s like he’s not even the same player he wa last year and even then he needed work.

  33. 1 of the worst efforts of the season so far.

    3 mega negatives. btw why did it take 35 minutes for the stute announcers to recognize how bad del zotto is playing.

    del zotto has been horrible… frolov cannot finish at all. people question why stepan is on 1st line, whjy is frolov on that line? he sucks…

    avery and prust try hard, tough, but they are journeyman.

    frolov and del zotto have been horrible in every way as well as our announcers that never say the rangers suck when they do………

  34. Blue Seat Horror on

    Once the coaches get through to young Michael and let him know everybody’s got his number and he adapts, he’ll be fine. It’s not a good season to be a defenseman unless you’re on Boston. Lotta goals scored league-wide this year, unless you’re on the Devils. Lotta blow-outs, especially if you’re on Edmonton.

    File this one under stinker

    well, if that isnt the perfect description of tonight, im not sure what is.

    we’ve even gotten 3 or 4 or 5 power plays and done nothing. cant fault the referees for this garbage performance.

  36. del zotto should change his name to home run or the gambler. btw they are both negative comments.

    he is making a ton of mistakes.

    btw stepan with numerous good passes to iron hands frolov already tonight…

    they need a pp qb and they need 1 addtl sniper…..

    bad bad effort.. boyle has looked slow also tonight, not his best game but DZ has been horrible…

    and the announcers continue with the blather…..

  37. I havent watched the game so far, but i see Del Zotto is -4. Ouch. Why is he on the 2nd pairing over a guy like Sauer? Because he’s a lefty or is it because he’s an offensive stalwart (1G 4A)?

    I’ve been saying it all season, his defensive play has gotten worse and he isnt producing offensively.

  38. Blue Seat Horror on

    Cogliano gets a game misconduct/major for boarding and Edmonton scores a shortie on the ensuing kill. 3-2 Oil.

  39. Frolov was a mistake. I understand why LA fans and the GM ran him out of town.

    Is EC hurt on that play? Soft.

  40. staal the best player on the rangers game in and game out. when he screws up you notice. dz is gambling at 1 to zip why??????

    dz needs to use his brain……..

  41. frolov does nothing while getting primo opptys. almost every game…

    he should have 8 goals the guy has 3 from a grand total of 5 feet away…

    he also is one of the many ranger culprits who instead of going for the easy clear often pass back or circle around just so the opposing team has a higher porbability oif stealing the puck and getting a good scoring oppty.

    frolov is a specialist in this are of f-ck up……….

  42. DZ seems to have bought in a bit much to his own publicity from the Rangers. He needs to be taken down a peg — he’s not actually the second coming of Bobby Orr. How about smart and simple, and worry about the Hall of Fame later? Believe it or not, this team misses Rozy.

  43. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " LETS GO RANGERS!!!"...& Greg L. on

    ugly .





    Bush league.

    Come on boys!!!!! 3rd period is comming up . Its all up to us if we wanna come out and compete. Its either gonna be an embarrassing blowout or a season starter . umm I have to admit it does not look good fir us but im still pulling for the us to do something!!!!???

  44. again because sauer keeps it simple defensively he is the 3rd best d man behind girardi and staal.

    i mean if we can see what he is doing wrong how can he not see this????

    the homerun pass is ok on occassion he tries it all the time.. The pinch, is ok against a slow team or when the probability of getting the puck is well over 50% or when you are down late in a game.. gambling down 1 to nothing in the 2nd period, WHY??????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  45. Tank The Season on

    Oh and there is absolutely, positively ZERO excuse not to call up Zuccarello to play in the next game.

  46. Blue Seat Horror on

    I don’t miss Rozy, kc. There’s nothing an injured Roszival would have done to make this better. Maybe he would have taken a few of those minus ratings away from Del Zotto, but that’s about it.

  47. Shoryuken on Glen Sather on

    Guys Frolov will play well, it just needs to be 6-2 before he does.

    What a disaster. MDZ needs a seat tomorrow night, WTB is he doing?

  48. Delzotto started playing bad at the end of last season. They were saying he was young and tired, not used to playing so many games. Well it has carried over, but he is young, but he has to play the game a lot smarter than he is right now. I think he will be the d man we all expect, but it will take time. As for now I don’t see the sence in playing him on the powerplay, he is a big part of the problem.

  49. Blue Seat Horror on

    Kern, maybe a fairly better year, but that’s not saying much. Both are liabilities at this point. Bring up Valentenko.

  50. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " LETS GO RANGERS!!!"...& Greg L. on

    Redden could be a sleeper ORR …We bring him up , juice him up on the PP and let him play the PK. His value goes up and we ship him out to Edmonton. Ala Renney Rental . Too bad the Oilers are garbage and will never ever make the playoffs again.

  51. Is this horror show over, yet? Everything turns over and goes in in this shameful porn. I’m fed up. Poor Torts.

  52. Shoryuken on Glen Sather on

    Why does it seem like our PP game plan consists of fighting for the puck along the wall for 2 minutes?

  53. onecupin70 yearsand counting on

    you guys whine like you been watching them for forty years..
    season is still early
    wait until Capt D returns

  54. Interesting stats there… head to head, the Western teams are slaughtering the Eastern teams this year

  55. Shoryuken on Glen Sather on

    Girardi must always have a wet ass jersey after the game with all the time he spends lying on the ice.

  56. Blue Seat Horror on

    Torts should play the 3rd and 4th line as much as possible and rest to top guys for tomorrow’s game.

    …and make them do a bag skate while Colorado’s 3 stars are throwing pucks to the departing audience.

  57. Funny, how in Roszy absence, new scapegoat raised – Frolov. Congrats, now at least we know who to blame for all mistakes and lack of scoring today and always. What happened to all folks favorite MDZ – for long period of time he’s playing like minor league quarterback after lobotomy, constantly? So quick to put on pedestal and even faster throw the stones.

  58. Blue Seat Horror on

    Listening to the radio. Maloney was just lauding Ryan Wilson saying how solid and hard he is. Ewww.

  59. Shoryuken on Glen Sather on

    Why are Joe and Sam so baffled by Prust being hurt? That looked painful, his neck/head snapped back.

  60. Blue Seat Horror on

    Rangers need to spend more time in the penalty box. They play better when the refs are more antagonistic.

  61. I have watched the Aves play a few times this year. They are fast , and pretty good, but not this good.

  62. Blue Seat Horror on

    Maloney just said Avery was standing up for Fredo. Is this true?

    See that Fredo. That’s what it means to be a teammate.

  63. that was a masterpiece. man todd white sucks, how did anyone pay him over 2 mill.

    delzotto sucked huge. gilroy soft on the puck if that does not improve he will never ever be anything.

    frolov is slow and sucks..

    as stated not this year but in about 3 Stepan is going to be like doug weight, he will be a star, huge hockey IQ.

    del zotto needs a lobotomy……

    so the games you give away point hurt when you are not a great team. henrik has given up softies that hurt in at lest 3 game sthis year, those points will kill…

    man I cannot wait to frolov is gone and white..

    avery stinks his fan club/ whta does he do but chirp? skates well sure cannot hit the net, ie 2nd period 2 on 1, did not even hit the net… he sucks…………

  64. I am concerned about the soft goals Hank has let in this season. He has played well but it seems that a softie is given up every time he plays…WTB?

    Good for Step. Good call Orr!

    MDZ should go to HFD to work on his game. Bring up Kundratek or V-Tank.

    I also wouldn’t mind seeing Zuccarello up here soon. We could use more talent on the wing. Froloaf is useless…

  65. Torts insisted he wasn’t upset after tonight. He sure sounded upset to me!

    Probably a minor point, but, Avery’s line goes off-side way too much. It doesn’t matter who’s on the line with him. Even last year this happened. I figure it must be him. He’s the common denominator. It kinda drives me nuts.

    Poor effort by almost everybody tonight. I don’t know why. I guess these things (unexplained inconsistancy) are to be expected. It’s all part of being a Ranger fan. Lucky us!
