It’s Go Time!


Same lineup as the 2-0 win over the Fish … er, Islanders.

Lundqvist starts in goal; White and Gilroy are the pruchas.

Probable lines:

Frolov-Anisimov -Boogaard

  1. I just met Bonehead beth and her man. Nice, nice people. And I hope to see mama here tonight, if she ever stops trying to get a closeup of No. 16.

  2. Thanks for chatting with us Carp! I forge to tell you to keep up the good work and thank whoever at Journal News who’s keeping this blog alive for us!

  3. Hey gang!

    Sunday afternoon games are great, imo. Got stuff done earlier, now sitting down to watch the game, and will have time afterwards to do more stuff, like writing Christmas cards.

  4. I’m so sick of Dolan and the NHL not playing nicely. We never get an MSG HD feed for these games. Ever. I thought that was supposed to change this year, but I guess not? Of course, I see the Pens games are in HD all the time…

  5. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    lol ORR

    OMG joey tight face and john giagnome!! this should be a fun time in Rangerland tonight!

  6. Hate the say this, but I’d bet that Kovalev scores for the Sens. He ALWAYS scores against the Rangers.

  7. >>Only bad thing about Sunday afternoon games… Giannone doing play by play. Ugh.

    I really do not like that guy, with his constant “on ice” nonsense.

  8. Heritage Jerseys are still vey snazzy. Would LOVE one for Christmas, but there isn’t a chance in heck I would ask for one.

  9. I don’t have a good feeling for this one. Rangers lost the last time they wore the Heritage jersey.

  10. >>Terrible start.

    As long as they do not cough up any goals, there’s plenty of time to right the ship.

  11. >>it’s quiet here tonight. and i mean on the blog, not the arena.

    Rangers don’t show up to play; Boneheads don’t show up to post. Fair enough!

  12. Never underestimate the ability of the Rangers to make any bottom-dweller to look like the next Stanley Cup champion.

  13. Maybe the decided to keep the ice untouched on the other side? You know, for the second period?

  14. Blue Seat Horror on

    They must be listening to Gianone’s call on the bench because it’s putting me to sleep too. He just doesn’t have a good voice for play-by-play.

  15. Considering that Rangers are playing “dump and chase”, how funny is that Chase ad on the glass?

  16. JBytes – hahahahah… If that’s an intentional ad placement on their part, it’s quite brilliant.

  17. Blue Seat Horror on

    Rangers have looked shorthanded all period. Wonder if they agreed to play with one skater tied behind their back…

  18. Blue Seat Horror on

    OK good. They made it through their period off without giving up a goal. Now they can start playing.

  19. I hope they have the earplugs, because I don’t think they will have the same hearing after Torts “talks” to them during the intermissionn

  20. I think it’s all tactical. Ottawa officially played 4 periods in two days. The Rangers- none! Now they’re ready to bring it!

  21. N.CountryNYRFan on

    Lets Go Rangers we need a strong 2nd period. We just gave Ottawa a handicap of one period.

  22. N.CountryNYRFan on

    does the Heritage jersey for the 85th anniversary mean the players play like they are 85??

    I always tune into Rangers broadcasts to hear about the other team continuously, Joe.

  24. That same failure to keep the puck in on the power play is what did Kotalik in last season. Let’s hope the same thing doesn’t happen to Stepan.

  25. We’re so bush-league, it’s not even funny … this is complete mickey-mouse, amateur-hour stuff from the girls

  26. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on


  27. It’s funny, I had just been thinking, at least we’ve got a better chance of scoring while short-handed than on the PP.

  28. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    Hey guys, I just heard from Fozzy:

    Thank you Linda! I just tried to post on RR but for some reason could not. I put the message on Boneheads FB page. Please let everyone know how much I appreciate the sentiments! I am trying to sort everything out…kind of overwhelming. But we are getting through. This funeral is going to be like none other! Thank you so much for your prayers/thoughts! It really means alot! ?


    I know you’d want to know, if you hadn’t heard from her yourselves.

  29. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on


    # JBytes December 5th, 2010 at 6:15 pm

    Prust needs two more to catch Kovalchuk.

  30. Leclaire has such great legs.

    Such big and strong legs.

    Such long and limber legs.

    Such sweet and tasty legs…

  31. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    Fozzy posted on the Boneheads FB page. For those of you not on FB, this is her message:

    I was unable to post on RR for some reason….
    Hi Everyone,
    My revolving door has finally quieted briefly and I just had a chance to read all of the touching & heartfelt posts from yesterday. Thank you Carp, Mama and all of my Bonehead friends! I feel fortunate to “know” each and everyone of you and to have such a wonde…rful Ranger “family” here and on FB! Tom’s death was a result of complications following surgery so it was sudden and unexpected. It was a shock to all of us–he was only 47. We had nearly 25 wonderful years together, shared alot including our love for the Rangers and I’m so glad we were both lucky enough to meet so many of you this past May at Warren 77. Tom’s funeral will have lots of Ranger touches including the officiant wearing a Rangers jersey for the service! Please hug your loved ones a little tighter tonight!
    I won’t be able to stay on long as I have more company coming over but I will say…Let’s go Rangers!

  32. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    oh yay a drury update.


  33. The refs will never give a penalty shot for a D-man shoving (rather than hooking or tripping) a player from behind on a breakaway. As we learned in the playoffs when Girardi did the same to Malkin.

  34. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    ilbzo, she is one freakin mentally strong woman. wow, i am just amazed by her.

  35. “The Rangers have been without their captain for all but 9 minutes and 11 seconds this season.”

    But what a 9 minutes and 11 seconds it was.

  36. Bad aftertaste…We were just lucky so far, don’t know for how long. MDZ is scary, awfully bad today. Let’s cross fingers and anything else – in miracle we trust. What’s going on with officiating this season?

  37. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    LW, he did all the little things in that time. ;-)

    wow,that is some attire Dave is sporting tonight

  38. Oh, makin’ my mind slow
    That’s why I don’t f**k with the big four, oh
    Bro, I got ta’ maintain
    ‘Cause a captain like me is goin’ insane

    Insane in the Membrane
    (Insane in da brain)


  39. ZzZz Fozzy ZzZz "We OTTAwa beat 'em!!!"...says Greg L. on

    GO Rangersssssss!!!!!!!!!!

    go go go go 3RD PERIOD!!!!!

  40. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    at kohls they give you a pack of gum and some butterscotch candies with every purchase from the collection

  41. These guys really need to work on odd-man rushes. They’ve had several three-on-ones in this game and not a single one has led to a good scoring chance.

  42. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    lmao you took the words outta my fingers mickey

    lmao @ the penalty killers are tired… and they clear it out!!!

  43. >>This top line isn’t looking as good as they did against the worst team in the league.

    And this Ottawa team isn’t even “elite”.

  44. ZzZz Fozzy ZzZz "We OTTAwa beat 'em!!!"...says Greg L. on

    powerplay !!!!!!!!aLRIGHT ALRIGHT!!!

    Gimme gimme some lovin!!

  45. Fedotenko denied on the Frolov specialty. I find that very amusing.

    Can they actually score a PP goal?! Questions will be answered. maybe…

  46. ZzZz Fozzy ZzZz "We OTTAwa beat 'em!!!"...says Greg L. on

    I really dont get why Frosoft is so bad…..?

  47. ZzZz Fozzy ZzZz "We OTTAwa beat 'em!!!"...says Greg L. on

    No Orr , Rangers win in overtime and we all cheer on the blog!!!! Callahan scores the GM winner.

  48. Blue Seat Horror on

    What are you complaining about Orr, they had an odd-man rush and the puck actually got on net. I call that a victory. :)

  49. ZzZz Fozzy ZzZz "We OTTAwa beat 'em!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Know what Frolov needs? a contract extension!


    Frolov needs a phone call from Higgins to discuss life as a sucking Ranger.

  50. Blue Seat Horror on

    I’m sorry. I could have sworn Gianone just said Torts was double-shifting Friggins. Whaaaa?

  51. ZzZz Fozzy ZzZz "We OTTAwa beat 'em!!!"...says Greg L. on

    B B B B

    Bigbadbrianboyle , the guys a beast . He Prust and Christensen are better then Frogoof.

    Go Rangerssss !!!!

    Come on Cally in ot!!!

  52. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    i seem to remember, in preseason… someone mentioned Boyles nickname this seasonshould be “soft giant”. Not so soft now eh lol

  53. ZzZz Fozzy ZzZz "We OTTAwa beat 'em!!!"...says Greg L. on

    im gonna PUKE…pull the goalie..ok pull the goalie and lets tie this fiasco up.

    Pull Hank , lets go boys…For firetruck sakes!!

  54. “All Europeans can play soccer” – Joe M

    that’s not a nice thing to say…

    it’s like saying “All Italians like to eat Spaghetti”

    Yes…I am European and i sure can play soccer…but i am not Italian but i like Spaghetti! Now what, Joe?

  55. ZzZz Fozzy ZzZz "We OTTAwa beat 'em!!!"...says Greg L. on

    LETS GOOOOOOOOOOO tie baby come tie this up!!!!!

  56. haha Kelly hat trick.

    Why were the Rangers so bad at the beginning today? No matter, Leclaire was great in the second half of the game.

  57. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    well orr, you called a hat trick, althought for a different player. you predicted pretty much this entire game

  58. This game has to be worse than the Avs and Bolts game. At least those teams were talented and playing well. The Sens have been awful this year. No excuse to lose this one.

  59. I told you we’d give up a goal in the final two minutes, and an empty net goal.

    Fear my predictions.

    My next prediction, Torts will break something, and his wife will kick him out for the night, and he’ll crash at Sully’s place, and noticed a guy sneak out of his house that looks like Giannone.

  60. ZzZz Fozzy ZzZz "We OTTAwa beat 'em!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Hey , this loss sucks froloaf bailzz but I love this team and screw this finish.

    We come back hard , I feel for the guys who went to the game. Leaving this game would be such an empty feeling. Other things can be worse so we “buck up” and move on. Oh btw Ottawa got lucky tonight.

  61. Love Callahan, but he should not be on the first power play or when the goalie is pulled. He is not, nor has he ever been, that kind of offensive player, despite the fact that Torts loves him.

  62. Blah. Not how I wanted to start the week. No way to redeem themselves until Thursday either. UGGGGH

  63. ZzZz Fozzy ZzZz "We OTTAwa beat 'em!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Ottaawa got luckkkkyyyy tonight. They lucked out,punked out…pulled a Philthy Philly .

    We could have been better . Were a 5th place team and losing sucks BIGTIME.

    we lost , but ….Oh btw ORR , so what ,you were kinda right BUT I say we kick azz next game cuz we are pizzeds!!! we have the next one What does you preditions say..?

  64. Blue Seat Horror on

    They should have tried to play Ottawa yesterday so they could make it a back-to-back-to-back.

  65. No, Zz, love your ever going optimism, but it have nothing to do with luck. Rangers were overplayed, over skate, and overworked, over coached, over smart and as a result over scored by Ottawa from the very beginning. You saw the difference in the mood on a game first 2 minutes. Damn. It was our last legitimate chance to win, before really tough games to come. No excuse.

  66. ZzZz Fozzy ZzZz " Heartbreaking loss!!!"...says Greg L. on

    4ever , with Hank in net …the game was ours to lose. I agree that we were outplayed earlier on but I really believed we were gonna win this game.

    CCCP , 0 – 7 what the byfuglin do I have to do to turn this sunking ship!!!????? Im embarassed. I dunno how this thing work but its making me look like a loser and that email is not there!!???? I need a tradeeeeeeeee!!!

  67. If they want to make a run at it this season, they’ll deal for Brad Richards ASAP.

    However, I stand by my belief that the Rangers are a season away from contention, maybe 2. Signing Richards in the offseason makes sense.

  68. Frolov is complete crap. Waive him already and let him go to Russia where he really wants to be. He’s not a bad guy at all it just ain’t workin’ out for him and he’s too slow and doesn’t shoot.
