NEW YORK RANGERS POST-GAME NOTES
November 27, 2010 – New York Rangers 2, Nashville Predators 1 SO (Game No. 25, Away No. 13)

* The Rangers defeated the Nashville Predators, 2-1, in the shootout tonight at Bridgestone Arena to improve to 14-10-1 overall, including a 9-4-0 mark on the road.  New York has now won four of their last five games.  Tonight’s contest marks the first time this season the Blueshirts participated in a shootout.
* Henrik Lundqvist made 29 saves through regulation and overtime, and stopped all three shots he faced in the shootout to improve to 9-8-1 overall with a 7-4-0 mark on the road.  Lundqvist has now posted a career record of 31-21 with a .753 save percentage in the shootout.

    wow, talk about a game they had no right to win!! i pissed off about 10 guys sitting behind me, thank God my man is a bodybuilder!!! WOOOOOOOOOOO

    a Prust fight and a Cally goal, 2 outta 3 aint bad!!
    Epik Christenfail, lmfao
    I yelled out boneheads after Cally scored!!

    Met Mickey and hung out with her and her friend for a bit after the game. HILARIOUS! Added to the surprising outcome of the game. Shea Weber is a beast. The TooToo train is frakkin annoying beyond all measure, and the guy is a showboat.

    Hank was pretty solid tonight. I usually don’t scream for him, but on the 3rd Preds shooter, I’m screaming at the top of my lungs HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANK! He saves it, me and the man stand up, I do my victory jig and scream like some psychotic lunatic!!! Look at the man and say, they had NO bizniz winning this game! LMAO VICTORY IS OURS!!!

    NYR, the arena is great, i love it. 17,113 in attendance, and there was a Lets Go Rangers chant went up a few times!!!

    ok, i’ll catch you guys tomorrow!!!!

  4. Who wants to start an over/ under for how many PP’s pens get on Monday?

    I say 6 and I’ll go with under as rangers will be cautious and boogaard probably won’t play. Rangers will get 2 PP’s and score on both.

    Rangers win 3-2.

    Book it.

  5. We deserved to win that game. And we probably should have won the game along the lines of 4-2. If our guys had better ability to finish. And no Gabby tonight either. Thanks Henrik!

    Glad the Rangers won for the 2 ladies of Lohud!

  6. What drove me nuts was the consistency with which almost the entire team continued passing or handing over the puck to these people. One after another, they’d collect the puck and then hand it over. It was maddening to watch. Yes, they were saved by LQ and by
    Callahan,,with a small helping from EC. (and for all who hate him)…isn’t it better to have him with the team, than against the team? He ain’t champagne..but he ain’t back alley rum either.)
