It’s Go Time!


Boogaard’s out injured, Eminger is a game-time decision, Gilroy comes out if Eminger is able to play. White stays in the lineup.

Same lines to start:


UPDATE: For what it’s worth, both Eminger and Gilroy are skating in warmups. Eminger looks OK. I’m guessing he will play.

By the way, Heritage (0-2) jerseys tonight.

About Author


  1. Ill even make it worth your while. If you dont watch the Jets anymore, and the Jets make it to the Super Bowl, Ill pay you $500. Seriously, and Im good for it.

  2. I suppose they’ll keep wearing those Heritage jerseys until they win one; but it won’t be tonight, I’m afraid.

  3. so what will happen tonight?

    8-0 on back to back and 1-2 in heritage jersey


    snap 5 game losing streak for Caps and go 7-1 and 0-3? We are certainly more capable of helping teams snap the losing streak.

  4. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    hockeystreams center ice feed is playing some wacky porn tune-ish kinda music. It’s really bad

  5. Come on, Orr. Please, cant you just do this for me. By watching, you’re screwing us over. The NYR starts in 18 minutes, just wait for them. I swear, $500 for a Jets Super Bowl appearance, $1000 for a Jets Super Bowl win.

    JBytes – :)

  6. Izzy Mandlebaum on

    Well, I’m certainly not going to write them off before the game starts.

    Let’s Go Rangers!

  7. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    Tiki, going to get a rating on the oatmeal coconut cranberry cookies probably tuesday. if its good, when I have the $$ i’ll make some for you and sally and send em out.

  8. i guess my russian translator didnt work so well.

    cccp and ilb – you get nothin’! you guys arent bad luck. Orr is clearly bad luck.

  9. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on


  10. Whom ever said that hockey isa relatively inexpensive sport does not have any kids playing hockey.

  11. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    are you kidding me… Beninati on NHL Network.??? If hockeystreams has our announcers, off with NHL Network lol

  12. you really are a stubborn &*#$ Orr. Seriously. Now, Im pissed at you. If we win, you’ll be off my shite list. If not…

  13. S’up gang!

    Good times, the twine-minding, dasher rounding, tilter of horrid phrases will be my host. Shoot me now, pls.

  14. did any of you see the “Flip” camera commercial with Malkin in it? When he juggles the puck on his stick then shoots it in empty net and says: “Just anazer day at ze offeese” I laughed my crosby off at that commercial.

  15. Blue Seat Horror on

    Maybe they ordered the wrong jersey stock for the alternate jersey. Instead of ordering the heritage jersey they accidentally ordered the heretic jersey. Hence the o-fer for the alts.

  16. >>800 NHL games is quite an accomplishment for someone who suffers from asthma

    Poti has asthma too? I thought he was allergic to every food on the planet.

  17. Blue Seat Horror on

    They’re getting through the Capital defense easily enough. Too bad they can’t finish.

  18. They look much better right after the PP expires. Just wait for that moment, boys, save your energy..

  19. Blue Seat Horror on

    Capitals don’t have a crease clearing defenseman either and it’s showing tonight. I guess Poti gave that role up.

  20. Aren’t you tired of hearing about them getting “good looks” on PP? Perhaps they should stop looking and start shooting?

  21. Blue Seat Horror on

    I think they send out the Sully-bot for the between periods interviews. He’s programmed with the same answers every time.

  22. I tell ya… its been awhile since we’ve seen some Dubinskisses…. will tonight be the night?

  23. Izzy Mandlebaum on

    Actually, Sather will take Prust to arbitration just to stiff him on a few $100K. Then sign Gonchar for about 6 million for 6 years.

  24. Blue Seat Horror on

    Good point ilb. You’d think they could at least come up with a few different sets of questions and answers and rotate them to make it seem a little fresher.

  25. By the way, I don’t know if you noticed, but on that goal, when Boyle arrived to help Prust, he yelled :”Two!”

  26. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    damnit i hate being so far behind youse guys grrrr!!
    Rangers gotta score on the Bill!

  27. Upon further review, GABBY!

    Still- yaaaayyyy!

    And shut the hell up, Caps color guy. You make Beninati actually listenable!

  28. Joekuh - EC Fan Club President on

    so that’s how we beat them at home…..wait for them to come in with a 5 game losing streak!

  29. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    lol Headzo!

    now my other 2 men need to get on the board!!!

    Funny how I called Prusties goal in an email to Mako!!

  30. Todd White has contributed tonight heavily too. Has he been on the ice after he won that face-off?

  31. According to Laughlin, the Rangers need to “beat off” the Caps to go above .500 on days when the Knicks have also played at home. Surely that would lead to a Semin explosion?

  32. This isn’t even the least bit satisfying to me. Why? Because the Rangers, just like every New York team, can look this good today and look horrible tomorrow. And all that boils down to is lack of coaching and lack of awareness/preparation.

  33. Yorktown Ranger on

    Why isn’t OV hitting the showers. Low hit on Cally and an instigator. Throw that piece of Carcillo out of NY.

  34. Avery gets the heat, but Dubinsky has quite a mouth himself. But he isn’t afraid of anyone — love the way Dubi takes on Ovechkin and Crosby.

  35. OV should have gotten instigator. Jumped with gloves off right onto Dubi. But can we really expect fairness? No

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

    PING!!! PANG!!! POST!!!!!


    OV , you suck!!!!!

  37. Take that Beninati and other Washington guy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You ****** dirtbags!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Suck that you pigs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  38. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    oooh laich stared at Lundqvist, i bet hank was scared


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

    RANGERSSSSSSSS we love youuuuuuuuuu!!!!!

    GO boys ,dont stop!!!

  40. You’re right Linda!

    Ya know what, I am gonna get excited. Life is too short to stay angry!

    Life is about hope!


  41. Hey… maybe Avery can do something entertaining now?? Geez I forgot he was even playing tonight!

  42. Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuub!!! haha “ovechicken” love it ;) he went right for the two-fisted face scrubbing…not sure how much that will rally his team lol

    And Staal with the best goal of the game!!!

  43. Joekuh - EC Fan Club President on

    if i see this 24/7 penguins capitals commercial i may be forced to take drastic action against my TV…

  44. The Rangers’ Russian guys need to go in the hall after the game and make Ovechkin laugh to get Boudreau angry again.

  45. Im tired of settling for Rangers’ failure. This team is good enough to win the Cup with an elite Goalie to carry us through. Who’s with me?




  46. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    seriously, why do we have to hear about Crosby during every firetruckin NEW YORK RANGERS game???? why?????????????????????? why????????????????

  47. MickeyM understands more about hockey than OV. The idiot took himself off the ice for 5 minutes down 4 goals.

  48. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    LMAO IZZY!! thats hilarious!!! glad you didnt say hope and change

    Keep busting ovenchicken in the grill!!!

    and you’re right Carpy, no fighting for Prust tonight

  49. finally got a chance to get online.

    Hank needs to Dubi those posts and crossbar when the
    2nd period is over.

    got home just in time for the 4 goals in this period.
    (for the superstitious, you can thank me later!)

    you hear the announcer say after showing the
    stupid stat about record of Rangers and Knicks when they
    play on the same day.
    said something about if the Rangers “beat off the capitals tonight…”

  50. OV took out Jagr in the Olympics.

    Well, you can imagine my distaste for him after that.

    At least Crosby’s won a Cup and Olympic gold. The highlight of OV’s career is that hit on Jagr. I hope he never wins a Cup, unless it’s with the NYR.

  51. N.CountryNYRFan on

    a saucer pass is a pass that goes airborne “like a flying saucer” and lands nice and flat on the ice, hopefully right on your teamates stick.

  52. Joekuh - EC Fan Club President on

    Winston, a saucer pass is when you put a little air under a pass, trying to get it over a stick or body part to your teammate.

  53. Shattenkirk Del Headzo on

    Winston – it’s when you elevate a pass a few inches off the ice to your target in order to avoid an opponent’s stick when it’s in the passing lane. Basically the puck will sail through the air like a flying saucer when done properly.

  54. A saucer pass is when a player elevates the puck over a defender’s stick and it lands flat on the ice for a teammate.

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


    Rangers are rocking tonighttttt!!!

    Heyy heyy heyyy Lets go Rangersss!!!!

    Passion folks!!! we believe!!!!!

  56. Shattenkirk Del Headzo on

    Linda makes nice saucer passes to her man when she’s serving dinner from the kitchen!

  57. A saucer pass is when Ovechkin puts his excrement on a saucer and passes it to Beninati to dine on, which Joe happily does :)

  58. N.CountryNYRFan on

    Hank better be making sweet love to those goal posts after the game for all those dings!

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

    A Saucer pass is when you saucer a pass …duh.

    Go RANGERS!!!!

    Yo Carp , look at us now!!!!! Were taking it to these Mustards!!!

  60. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    saucer pass is now officially in the Bonehead Lexicon!! woooo

    that and NUTROCKER from last night. Waiting for the right time for that! I think it will be when someone finally destroys knockwurst lips

  61. ovenchicken is all pouty cuz he is getting overshadowed badly by his nemesis Crosby. they are winning and his team is dropping like a rock.

  62. i’m still nervous as hel. we all know what happened last tiem we got a good lead against the caps at home. wasnt that the infamous “wont let it ruin my holiday” remark by sir spins alot??

  63. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    SIR SPINSALOT!! wow you guys are freakin ON FIRE tonight with the quips!! love it

  64. Capital punishment on

    that HBO show should be something if they are following the Craps around with mikes. lately there must be some real backbiting going on after all these losses piling up.

  65. And I fumble the pass from Linda, much like the Rangers are wont to do at times. Maybe the Dman, Shattenkirk, can pick it up for me.

  66. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    OH MAN!! i wonder if ovenchicken is Dubi’s warm up for hot dog lips on wednesday!!!!!!!

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

    Yo Orr dont be a spoil sport know you love it!!!! Just smile…thats it…ah feels good to turn that frown upside down!!!

    Now to Saucer the next comment back to you Linda …

  68. I just choked my pork chop with Sir Spins a lot.

    Outstanding, Grabby. Though painful on my end ;)

  69. N.CountryNYRFan on

    very true ilb.

    it would be nice to have him though for the games against the pens and flyers

  70. N.CountryNYRFan on

    how is it they never seem to get anybody that has played hockey to shoot the puck from center ice to win a price. I would love to see someone wind up a sick slapshot.

  71. Shattenkirk Del Headzo on

    I wonder how many how many home Islander games it would take to equal attendance at the U of M outdoor game?

    i also think when we’re still commenting here in 5 years Linda & BLogmama will be drooling over Carl Hagelin (unless Sather trades him for Redden’s son!)

  72. Shattenkirk Del Headzo on

    N country I was thinking the same thing. I’d volunteer but I’m afraid I’d get a thousand texts a day begging me to buy tix.

  73. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on


    now its Flavahs turn!!

  74. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " LETS GO RANGERS!!!"...says Greg L. on


    5th place baby!!!!

  75. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    Mako must be laughin since I called that too!!!!!! HEHE I hope he’s having fun at this game, even though his man AO was dumped by Dubi!

  76. Caps announcers are blaming the team’s bad play on the Knicks and how because of their game, they couldn’t have a morning skate.


  77. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    lol, isnt there a rink at chelsea piers? if they really wanted to skate they could have gone there

  78. LW3H

    (on the slow computer…)
    so, i wasn’t dreaming.
    (just got back from seeing Inception again so this whole offensive explosive seems like a dream)

  79. Izzy Mandlebaum on

    >>No happy ending for Semin today.

    I thought there was always semin with a happy ending….

  80. at least these announcers got it right in regards to
    Ovi wanted to fight Dubi
    whereas the NHL Network guys made it sound as if Dubi
    went of Ovi.

  81. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    jpg, the guys on NHL Network are the caps announcers, just in case you did not know

  82. And apparently the Caps announcers are mind readers… they said that Dubi didn’t want to fight. As if Dubi was afraid of Oveckin. PUH-LEASE.

  83. N.CountryNYRFan on

    i love the woodchucks commercial. about a month my wife and I were moving some things around outside prepping for winter when of course i did something to piss her off, and she grabbed a piece of wood from our wood pile and chucked it across the yard. Iyelled at her, hey you dang woodchuck stopchucking my wood and we both cracked up…lol.

  84. N.CountryNYRFan on

    i love the woodchucks commercial. about a month ago my wife and I were moving some things around outside prepping for winter when of course i did something to piss her off, and she grabbed a piece of wood from our wood pile and chucked it across the yard. Iyelled at her, hey you dang woodchuck stopchucking my wood and we both cracked up…lol.

  85. MDZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    what kind of stupid play was that in your zone!!!!!

    he needs another day of homework!!!!

  86. Maybe they are cheering Ovenchicken getting hurt because he’s on the visiting team? Gee, that might be a good reason, you asshats.

  87. Shattenkirk Del Headzo on

    I hate every froggin commercial in these MSG Broadcasts, especially the VW pen spinning one. I want to stick that twirling pen up that guy’s carcillo chute.

  88. N.CountryNYRFan on

    Headzo that pen commercial is veryannoying I agree. If i was test driving a car with that guy i would crash into a tree on purpose

  89. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " LETS GO RANGERS!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Ovechkin sat and watched our practice that one time….he desevers all the Carp he gets!!!

  90. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on





    Suck that Joe Beninati and pal! SUCK IT!

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

    WE WANT THE CUP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    WE WANT THE CUP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  92. LUNDQVIST!!!!






  93. i know the post is the goalie’s little buddy
    Hank needs to be out more and in a better
    position because those shots are getting past him.

  94. LMAO, Caps will have nightmares all year after this game. May help Bruce with his weight loss, perhaps

  95. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    lmfao @ metal leg!

    who in their right mind expected ANYTHING like this tonight????

  96. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " LETS GO RANGERS!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Gawd this place is hot hot hot!!!!

    Go Rangersssssss !!! Gotta love da gaurdennnn!!!

  97. AVERY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    BANG!!!! Throw his ass down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEAH BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

  98. These two Capitals commmentator losers:
    “They play each other 2 more times”
    Go to hell you two pieces of crap. Worry about beating your own division rivals,
    Worry about OV’s hand you ***** ******
    “The Great 8” ??? Seriously?? What has OV ever done?? He’s the White Shite!

  99. On a side note, is this yet ANOTHER game where Frolov has done absolutely nothing? Why isn’t he gone yet?

  100. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    cj just said that beninati asked if they could fast forward to the plane ride! LMAO i wish i had heard that!

  101. hendricks deserved that. he punched Sauer twice when he was down on the ice, so Aves returned the favor.

  102. N.CountryNYRFan on

    i think todd white has been jumping into the faceoff circle early just so he can take some draws and make it look like hes doing something out there

  103. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " LETS GO RANGERS!!!"...says Greg L. on

    these morons keep saying the “S” word just to jinx Hank!!!

  104. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    lmao @ there’s still time!!!

    be careful what you wish for……


  105. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    lol, why do i not find that hard to believe

    wow, the caps announcers are just horrible

  106. GREG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE WANT THE CUP! WE WANT THE CUP!!

    Beninati just used the phrase “rubs him out”

    Very fitting, as Beninati likes to rub one out to Ovechkin on a daily basis.

  107. Blue Seat Horror on

    The Great Egg pitches a goose egg tonight. And got the Shattenkirk kicked out of him. Take that ovum.

  108. Joekuh - EC Fan Club President on

    this replaces the edmonton game as the best of the year. so far. bring it on cindys!!!!

  109. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " LETS GO RANGERS!!!"...says Greg L. on

    we win we win we win we win we win!!!!!

    Shut out again Hank…holey Eliting Hank!!!!

  110. Blue Seat Horror on

    I noticed Lundqvist doesn’t throw the stick into the crowd for shutouts anymore. Somebody must have gotten hurt.

  111. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    lmao ovum!!


    and staalsie…..


  112. Beninati was just heard singing: “Patty cake, Patty cake, baker’s man, rub one out as fast as you can!” which for Beninati is a simple task

  113. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " LETS GO RANGERS!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Tiki ,Yes we do!!!!


    wese makin playoffs…we makin sum noise here!!!!

    Best Goalie in the NHL and player-kissing Dubinsky beating on OV and crybaby crosby!!!! How can ya not love dubi!!!!!

  114. they played a good one tonight. That said I think that is the worst I have ever seen the Caps play. Man do they have problems.

  115. love what Avery did. Hendricks hit Sauer twice after he was on the ice earlier, so Avery gave him those 2 back. And told him about it! Awesome job.

  116. and McPhee has been insisting all season that he is fine with those 2 young goalies and he does not need a vet goalie. hah, I doubt that bs will last much longer.

  117. And we’re still yet to hear the results of the Clutch X-rays, which have the potential to top anything that happened during the game.

  118. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " LETS GO RANGERS!!!"...says Greg L. on

    We saucer passed a few team in the standings…very interesting situation we have here. I would suggest were “buyers” hmmmm could Frolov be on the move-ov??

  119. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    wow, i know the Jets history is pretty poor, but I just saw something that, despite all the bad losses, bad teams etc, has made me embarrassed to say I’m a Jets fan. WTF was the strength and conditioning coach thinking by sticking out his knee and tripping that dude on the dolphins? REALLY??? REALLY???? that was absolutely bush league and has no business in sports. The dude should lose his job.

  120. Seeing that reminded to check out Hagelin from Linda’s earlier comment. He’s adorable, so yep, claiming him while he’s still in college. Book it :)

  121. Linda

    yeah, i knew it was the caps announcers i was suffering
    but i gotta give ’em credit for pointing out
    that ovi was going after Dubi
    and the NHL Network guys did not

  122. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    gotcha jpg, must have misread ya!!

    and the caps fans are saying ovie didnt deserve the instigator(which he did not get) because dubi started the fight LMFAO! REALLY:???

  123. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " LETS GO RANGERS!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Nice try CCCP , you never predicted anyhing haha you only said Semins name in russia and that you wanted alot of goals . Nice try ,BUSTED!!!!

    Rangers new uniforms are AWSOME!!!

  124. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " LETS GO RANGERS!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Shattenkirk …I absolutly agree with you on that!!!

    5th place , ahhhhh feels really good!!!!

  125. Damn nice commercial for the Winter Classic, starting out with the old 8mm film of guys skating outside from waaaaaay back.

  126. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    HAIL THE GOAL POSTS!!!!!!!!!!! caps must’ve hit 4 of em tonight! Whoever said Hank should make sweet love to them tonight is absolutely correct.

  127. Shattenkirk Del Headzo on

    Dave Maloney’s quote of the night: “when a guy plays better he becomes a better player”!

  128. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    i dont get the post game Headzo……….grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!

    LMAO @ Dave Maloneys John Madden moment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  129. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    unfortunately, the happy high i am on right now will go away once i walk into the gatemouth of hell tomorrow. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

    but until then


  130. Shattenkirk Del Headzo on

    Hate to burst the fun bubble here but Drury cleared by docs to play & will be in against ice chickens most likely. Well it was fun while it lasted!

  131. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on


    That, my friends, was the life being sucked out of this team by the return of Captain Lunesta.

  132. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    wait a second, he’s gonna jam the finger when he goes to put his hand in the glove, and be out until June!
