It’s Go Time!


And here’s what I know about the backup goalie:

Tom Fenton of Purchase, who works at Manhattanville college and is an assistant hockey coach at the school, found himself as an NHL goalie Thursday night.

Or, at least, a backup goalie.

Phoenix goalie Ilya Bryzgalov became ill during the day leading up to the before the Coyotes’ game against the Rangers, and it was too late for Phoenix to recall a goalie from its minor-league team in San Antonio.

So Coyotes GM Don Maloney — the former Rangers player and executive, and local resident — got on the phone to try to find a goalie in the New York area. 

“We were scrambling,” Maloney said.

He found a few possibilities, but one didn’t have his equipment, another was headed out of town. Sean Burke, the team’s goalie coach and former NHL goalie, could not be signed to an amateur tryout deal since he had been a pro.

So Maloney spoke with one of his scouts, former Rye Country Day and Iona College coach Frank Effinger, who got in touch with Fenton, the head of team operations and community relations at Manhattanvile who played goalie at American International College, and signed him to an standard amateur tryout contract, which consists of not much more than per diem.

And kept his fingers crossed all night that nothing happened to starter Jason LaBarbera.

  1. From previous thread:

    Larry, that’s just how strong my opinion is. I think comparing somebody else to Gretzky is like comparing Jim Thome to Babe Ruth.

    CT, sorry, I didn’t make it out to warmups because I was working on this backup goalie story.

  2. Cally's Broken Hand Del Headzo on

    I think the ‘yotes back up goalie plays in my men’s league!

    I’m sure Sather will trade Kreider & MZA for him…

  3. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    HIYA Headzo and Tiki!! and Izzy and Ria,and our esteemed host with the most Carpy!!!

  4. Blue Seat Horror on

    Evening all.

    The worst the Rangers can do is take out LaBarbara, given that this team is so keen on making rookies look good and boosting the confidence of cinderella opponents.

    My favorite parts of 24/7: Seeing the Rangers inspire such a reaction out of the opposing team’s coach and seeing Crosby get mauled by Weber from Buffalo and looking like he pooped his diaper.

    Hopefully we get good Good Marty tonight.

    Let’s Go Rangers!

  5. Larry Sacharuk on

    Bobby Orr = Jim Thome where #99 = Babe Ruth. Wow. I appreciate all you do on this blog, but that is about as insane as it gets.

    The more you press your case, the more you reduce it to silliness. Not Willie Mays, or Joe D, or Ty Cobb. No, Bobby Orr = Jim Thome.

    Let it go, Carp, quit while you’re at least not threatening the possibility of embarrassing yourself!

  6. Cally's Broken Hand Del Headzo on

    Poor Carp – he’s gonna have a slobbering drunk of a Bonehead pestering him all night now! Send him over to Uncle Larry!

  7. tr-808 – I know you’re reading this. I and many others wish you would post more often. Your insights are missed.

  8. Larry – Let’s not personally attack Carp, please. I dont think he was actually comparing Thome to Orr. I think it was an exaggeration. Hyperbole, ever heard of it?

  9. The reason I said Jim Thome was a reference to an SI story this summer, in which it was written, in the history of baseball if you needed a home run to win a game, there are only a hanful of players you’d take ahead of Jim Thome.

    And I could think of a couple of handfuls in the game right now, probably more than a handful in the division in which Thome played.

  10. Wow, Carp. That is an absolutely absurd statement to make re: Thome. Absurd.

    Linda Linda Linda!!!! Ay Ay Ay!!!! Hip Hip Hooray!!!

    Sorry about Cally :(

  11. Larry Sacharuk on

    Relax you guys, Carp can well handle himself, as he just proved. No offense intended. But sacrilege is sacrilege! ;>

  12. Blue Seat Horror on

    What’s never explained in that Bud Light commercial is that Schremplicating means getting signed to the Islanders and being forced to play on a line with Robby Schremp.

  13. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    i wonder, if Sather had to sign Tom Fenton, what his signing bonus would have been ;-)

  14. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    lmao i just saw that goal.. my statement was about the penalty!!! oy i have being in the south lol

  15. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    i think they like making us wait until the 3rd……..more theatrics that way Spider

  16. So Joe Micheletti is busy and more interested in talking about a former Ranger, Korpikoski?

    And how he’s filled out and big he’s become? Hey Joe, did you beg to how big “little Korpikoski” is and ride your frehley on it?

  17. Now we have Henrik on his game, and Biron is throwing up a stinker. If I hear Korpikoski one more time, Im going to jump through the TV screen and strangle Michelshitti!

    lol Linda

  18. At the end of the day, I can see why a lot of people see it as you do Carp. I just think some other people on the blog think it’s a foregone conclusion that he’s better, just because he’s “the great one” and has all the records. There’s a lot more to it than that. And reasonable hockey fans can disagree about it without being on drugs or something, lol. That was basically my point.

    Maybe all the Rangers’ forwards will fall ill while I’m at a game and they’ll need to call me up! HAHA

  19. The Heterodox Economist on

    Wow, once again no one has the gumption to come to Avery’s defense while he’s being double-teamed? The Rangers-defense can at the least reciprocate for the way Avery cleared the crease like they never do (referring to the Asham incident last night). This just isn’t right, hockey is supposed to be a team sport.

  20. ZzZz NYR ZzZzrury " Msg blues !!! "...says Greg L. on

    BOOOOOOOOOOOO What a bunch of garbage!!!!

    We can’t be spotting teams a 2 goal lead!!!!!??

    Aw Come on you laxadasical puds!!!! Get a move on!!!! Lets go !!! Lets Go!!


  21. I love Sam Rosen. Glad to hear him stick up for the Yankees and say it was Cliff Lee’s loss.

    On the other hand, Joe Michelshitti is clearly a Red Sox fan. Loser is laughing at us. I wish Sam would jack Joe right in the face during the next commercial break.

  22. Cally's Broken Hand Del Headzo on

    Agreed – baseball freaks quit creepin’ on this blogs. Hey there’s Mariano!

  23. Izzy Mandlebaum on

    It’s Gretzky. You can look it up…. Is this the 5 minute argument? Or were you thinking of taking a course?

  24. Orr – STFU. The Yankees are the best organization in the world. They deserve to be spoken about. On Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins, and Patriots broadcasts, they all talk about all of their teams. And their fans love it. And Lee did not choose against NY b/c fans spit on his wife.


  25. I hate to say it. Gaborik is a giant waste. When he’s actually healthy, he cant create for himself. He needs others to create for him. He cant dominate a game by himself or carry a team on his back. He’s not Jaromir. Id rather have a 38 year old Jaromir than Gaborik.

  26. LW – Contrary to Carp’s opinion, that was not funny at all. Rather hurtful, to be honest. If the 2001 Yankees had any other relievers, he probably wouldnt have blown that save.

  27. N.CountryNYRFan on

    Danny G 3 game point streak, only 48 games until he ties Gretzky’s record. Let the comparison’s begin.

  28. >>I hate to say it. Gaborik is a giant waste. When he’s actually healthy, he cant create for himself.

    Hahahah! Little by little, you guys are beginning to see things through my eyes.

  29. actually, if he hadn’t made the throwing error he wouldn’t have blown that save, and if he hadn’t made such a great pitch on the GW bloop hit.

  30. The Heterodox Economist on

    IMO Gaborik needs someone who will fight for the puck in the corners of the offensive zone and feed him the puck. I don’t think Fedotenko can do that in the long-run. And Tort’s grinding, shot-blocking American system may not be compatible with Gaborik’s game.

    And I do hate the fact that Gabbo refuses to chase the puck once it’s been dumped, but he is still the #1 legitimate scorer NYR has so I suppose he’s exempt. I do hope Dubinsky can take over that spot in the long-run.

  31. How was LW’s comment not funny? I guess you’re just a bitter Yankees fan. I’m so sorry they couldn’t win a fourth in a row. WAHHHH!

  32. JBytes – I always try to remain positive about our players. Im just getting tired of seeing his mamby pamby ass do nothing. For $7.5 million a year, he ought to be able create for himself. But then again, we have Drury for the same or thereabouts.

  33. Grabbywaffles(sir spins alot)-URY on

    why cant gabby fight in teh corners himself? he needs to do something besides wait for other players to do something. hes not engaged the way he should be

  34. I’m glad Biron actually leaves the net when the Rangers have the puck in their zone on a delayed penalty. How often are they gonna put it in their own net?

  35. Joekuh-rury-mire on

    I do like Frolov being more aggressive for the puck tho. But ur right Carp, gotta at least hit the net. BUT, we get another chance!

  36. The Heterodox Economist on

    And Cally, stay out until completely healthy! I fear for longevity of your career everyday because of your enormous heart-and-soul. To me, you’re by far the hardest working player in the entire NHL. Now get some rest!

  37. Blue Seat Horror on

    I think I’m lost. I thought this was a HOCKEY blog. Take it over to the Yankme blog folks.

  38. LW – Now that was funny. Jokes about Mariano are unwarranted :)

    If the 2001 Yankees had 9 Ted Williams, they would have been swept :)

  39. Grabbywaffles(sir spins alot)-URY on

    carp- frolov had a good chance to shoot earlier and did some spin a whatever to nowhere., he sucks and cannot wait for vinny to come take his spot back

  40. Spiderpig – Hey, shut it! You got that? It was one of the worst days of my life; I remember crying in bed for weeks after that. And I still have nightmares about it weekly.

  41. I still don’t feel sorry for you. 1998-Yankees win World Series, 1999-Yankees win World Series, 2000-Yankees win World Series, 2001-Yankees win AL. While it would have been a great story for the city of New York, they lost.

  42. The Heterodox Economist on

    @Grabbywaffles(sir spins alot)-URY,

    Theoretically, he should be able to but it’s just not part of his game. And you know elite scorers will always get that privilege, this is why the ‘taxi squad’ must do what they do to stay in the line-up, no? Even those taxi-squad guys were considered skilled players at one point their careers but had to adjust their game to stay in the big-leagues.

  43. I don’t see how you can possibly say it’s a foregone conclusion when so many other great hockey guys have said otherwise. How could it both be a foregone conclusion and be disputed by such knowledgeable people?

    I do agree that it’s a foregone conclusion that neither of us are changing out minds on this one, so I understand if you don’t wanna keep going back and forth, I just like a good debate.

  44. Gaborik is not skilled enough to create opportunities for himself.

    Gaborik is not strong/tough enough to fight through checks to make room for himself on the ice.

  45. Blue Seat Horror on

    Not a horrible period. It’s just too bad Biron showed up to the game 5 minutes after everyone else.

    Hopefully they can get it back and then some in the 2nd. Unfortunately they got their power play goal for the game.

  46. Agreed JBytes with 7:45

    Pipe it down, Spider. Ill let you get away with those comments because you’re likely a Mets fan. :) It would have been really special for New York at that time, and the devastating way in which we “lost” was and will always be incomprehensible

  47. Grabbywaffles(sir spins alot)-URY on

    jbytes, i had a whole post saying exactly what u just said. well said. gabby is not half the player he was last year. i cant believe how sloppy he is sometimes with the puck

  48. Grabbywaffles(sir spins alot)-URY on

    i want a win tonight. they gotta beat this team. were the new york effin rangers! what the hell is phoenix anyway? a mythical bird that dies, and then a coyote. a scavenging dog. we better win!

  49. Grabbywaffles(sir spins alot)-URY on

    if we lose this, i will hate biron!!!!! bring back valley! j/k. he was worse. wheres linda? and sallywaffles??

  50. Grabbywaffles(sir spins alot)-URY on

    sally posted a vid of pigface jokinen staring wildly at a waffle floating around teh screen and then she wrote, heart you waffles. well i heart you too sallywaffles!

  51. Blue Seat Horror on

    Friggins slinking back to obscurity. He literally killed that entry into the zone with another stupid spin-o-rama.

  52. im not exactly sure what that stooge is doing with his spin-o-ramas. is he trying to make highlight reels or help his team win?

  53. Blue Seat Horror on

    I’d rather they play Gilroy as a 7th D than have White in the line-up. Gilroy has done nothing to deserve his trip to Pruchaville.

  54. Blue Seat Horror on

    Quick whistle there on the delayed penalty. Coyotes didn’t have possession of the puck.

    Come on Cower Play.

  55. I know the animal lovers here will like this… I got a Christmas card today with the most adorable lab puppy on the front in a santa hat. The card was from my Dad and my puppy.

  56. It’s amazing that White is even still on the team with that cap hit. I thought he would have to go when Drury came back, but I guess we will have to wait for Prospal and Cally.

  57. The Rangers will hopefully make your day even better :)

    Biron has settled down quite nicely.

    Well, now we’re down 3-1. That wasn’t Biron’s fault.

  58. You know what I just realized about that last PP for the Rangers. They have guys playing the point who weren’t born until 1990. Kinda stunning when you think about it.

    BOOOO. Wake up guys!

  59. Izzy Mandlebaum on

    Hanzel must have been shocked to be all alone in front with the puck, and not even Biron in his way…

  60. ZzZz NYR ZzZzrury " Msg blues !!! "...says Greg L. on

    Im gonna puke all over Fro-uplov!!!



  61. I dont think Gabby is interested in showing up. I think he’s interested only in picking up his paycheck

  62. ZzZz NYR ZzZzrury " Msg blues !!! "...says Greg L. on

    Who care anyhoo , we are winning this game …enuff said!!!


  63. Blue Seat Horror on

    It was a nice move by Friggins but he forgot to take his Viagra (couldn’t get it up).

  64. That Hyundai commercial with the disaffected hipsters lip syncing to Christmas music is easily the worst of all Christmas commercials.

  65. >>…Gabby…I think he’s interested only in picking up his paycheck

    Nah, he needs someone to do that for him too.

  66. Grabbywaffles(sir spins alot)-URY on

    rangers dont look tired. they look sloppy. they got a little confident with beating the pens and caps. thats all. avery doesnt score, so he might as well fight again. cmon guys. boyle u suck tonight. i think hes tired, along with his linemates, as they actually have worked hard lately. gabby and froloaf have no excuse. get a goal already. and drury too. he is gonna get 5 goals all rest of teh season. cant believe we had to lose cally and dru is replacing him. talk about all heart and effort to captain tylenol pm

  67. Linda is all-powerful, all-knowing!

    They just said Gabby got hit in the back. Maybe the NYR ought to hit him on the wallet, he may play harder!

  68. Ok, so is Gilroy considered one of the “kids” that Torts keep talking about? I guess not.

  69. Grabbywaffles(sir spins alot)-URY on

    greg, dont jinx us man!!! you said boogey will score 5. he wont get another till the apocalypse!! but i love your spirit

  70. Blue Seat Horror on

    “Coyotes have done a good job keeping the crowd out of the game.”

    Ha ha Sam. The opening face-off usually does that.

  71. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    why are they pimpin mike keenan???

    And wow, these guys better show some energy in the 3rd, the crowd is quiet, they seem blaaaaah.. CALLY COME BACK!!!!!!!!!

  72. Grabbywaffles(sir spins alot)-URY on

    i am gonna sit teh rest of this one out boys n girls. i know whats comin. see ya all next time. btw, bonehead fest is in may? im comin in february. i wanna meet some of youse at warrens.

  73. The Rangers should try to sign Stahl’s brother…Gunnar Stahl, #9 of Team Iceland. Great player…

  74. lol Linda did you see in the Post where Torts said “he’s got guts as big as a building”-now that’s Clutch!

  75. ZzZz NYR ZzZzust " In Prust We Trust!!! "...says Greg L. on


    Good teams always find a way to win.

    Us Folks are a Good team. We will come back again and hand these bums a loss at the hands of the New York Rangers .

    he’s stuck being interviewed by Troutnut

    Come on Phoenix…ya gotta do better then that!!??? You think ya taking this game…hahahaha we’ll see you scum bumz!!!

  80. This is one incredibly dumb commercial for the Winter Classic. It’s like they didn’t even try.

  81. Blue Seat Horror on

    Plan for the 3rd: If you feel like you want to do a spin-o-rama, shoot. If you think you can make one more pass, shoot.

  82. Btw, Stahl is known for being one of the best players ever to compete in the Junior Goodwill Games.

  83. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    tomorrow is Pee Wee Judas’ birthday
    saturday is Flavah’s birthday

    PeeWee scores tonight, Flavah on saturday

  84. Today our best play worse and our worse play best, but our best worse are worse than our worse best, therefore we are losing.

  85. Fine then, Tiki, I’ll eat it all myself :p

    The Maloney brothers look nothing alike, imo.

    Third period- COME ON GUYS!!

  86. Is it me or Gabby looks kind of desintersted for time to time, always emotionless or something…Just asking.

  87. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    sam the kid knew he would NOT be getting into the game. AL is not that clever, nor funny

  88. I love Portman! Ive been meaning to watch star trek and star wars, xfiles, but i never get around to it.

  89. I dont mean to be so hard on Gabby. I just hope he starts excelling and winning us games against tough competition.

  90. Gaborik is supposed to be their best player and he really hasn’t been for most of this year…even when he has played, numbers don’t tell the whole story…he needs to wake up…

  91. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    wonder if the shoulder is an issue, he did bang it on the post on that goal he scored right after he came back.

  92. Looks like Rangers are emotionally tired, drained, and slow in everything from skating to making decisions. Yeah, miracles doesn’t happened routinely, like every game…

  93. good point Lin, I do remember him being uncomfortable after that…hoping it’s just a slump, because we really him to turn it up…

  94. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    well, i hope he gets out of it soon because we need him to score!!! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

  95. ZzZz NYR ZzZzust " In Prust We Trust!!! "...says Greg L. on

    Time to warm up the “clutch mobile”

    Need that Drury Clutch goal …right about now!!!!!!


    Tired smired , we need the win baby!!!!!

  96. [Why do I always think of the Peter Gabriel song “I Go Swimming” whenever I watch the Rangers defend their goal?]

  97. ZzZz NYR ZzZzust " In Prust We Trust!!! "...says Greg L. on

    It reminds me of my childhood. but Maloney sure blows away those doofuses Sam and Joe. cant MSG find anyone with talent for those positions?

  100. >>lol until saturday jb eh? LOL

  101. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    that’s why we luv ya JB lol

  102. Blue Seat Horror on

    Alright. I’ll take it point by point against a western team. Let’s get one more out of this game.

  103. ZzZz NYR ZzZzust " In Prust We Trust!!! "...says Greg L. on

  104. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    this was their big week to show us who they are……

    game 3, we have 5 points, with the possibility of getting the 6th. I’d say this has been a pretty successful week for OUR NEW YORK RANGERS so far.

  105. Linda CalPrustBoylahan on

    lmfao JB… Greg Morris, Derrick MOrris, Morris the Cat, Chuck Norris………..tis all the same lol

  108. Blue Seat Horror on

    If Drury wasn’t playing they would have lost that game. He won the most important faceoff of the game.

  109. thanks for entertaining me tonight guys!

    I’ve only been a fan since 96 but this is the best Rangers team I’ve seen. granted I watched the 94 Rangers, but Gretzky want on the team yet.

    I told you we’d come back in the third. these guys have heart.

    I love it

  110. ZzZz NYR ZzZzust " In Prust We Trust!!! "...says Greg L. on

    I knew it , I knew it!!!!! aw come on we all saw it. The 3rd period was gonna be ours and all we had to do was come out and get it. We are a 5th place team and climbing!!! We are never outta it. We get tired ,we get a little laxy but in the end we get the job done. Straight up. This is New Ranger hockey and some of ya dont really understand but this team wants to win. This team wants to play playoff hockey. This team is ours and it is like NO OTHER . We will not stop untill someone stops us or we stop ourselves.

  111. This is one of the best Ranger teams we’ve had since when we had Jagr, Shanahan, Straka, and Nylander.

  112. Sather's Wrapup on

    Hello Rangers Fans! Here we are in Phoenix for tonight’s game with the Yotes. It’s a little weird though, it’s close to game time and the lights aren’t even on. Muck! Run down and see where the team is. I couldn’t have traded them all, did I?

    Well, we got it all straightened out. It was Muckler’s fault. He said he had the schedule upside down. I’ll just watch the game on MSG and report from here. Damn, MSG is blacked out here, too. That Dolan hates everybody! Hey Muck! While we’re stuck out here, find out where TONY from AZ lives and we’ll go toilet paper his house. Happy Holidays, Tony! (80 Degrees my Assen!)

    (Singing) “By the time I get to Phoenix she’ll be rising…” New ringtone, I better get this… Hello? Oh, it’s you, Maloney, That Fenton kid looks good sitting on the bench, doesn’t he? What do you want for him? Never mind, I’ll make him an offer over the summer. What do you want for Derek Morris? I did? When? For who? You mean I get Morris if I take Kalinin, Prucha and Dawes back too? Then I’ll give you White, Redden and Valiquette.

    Did you see Keenan’s new Camouflage Suit? I think it’s for hiding in the weeds, waiting for Torts to get fired…

    Carpy! You better put a lid on that zoo blog of yours. You’ve got people over there comparing The Great One to Orr, for cryin’ out loud! Orr stinks! He couldn’t score for beans. He was a fair tough guy, but that’s all. I knew that when tried to trade Orr and no one offered me a Gretzky for him. I couldn’t get anything for 5 Colton Orr’s.

    What’s that Mess? BOBBY Orr?! Oh. Never mind, Carpy.

    I hear it’s a win in OT. Lord Sather is still the Master. Maloney, the apprentice

  118. Blue Seat Horror on

    I didn’t mind Gaborik on a line with Dubinsky and Anisimov. At least he won’t have to carry the puck and can get himself into position.

    Kind of like Drury and Stepan together. Captain and future captain. Kind of like the passing of the clutch torch.

    Hammerhead- I love that name. My Uncle used to always yell at us, “You Hammerheads!” Brings back memories (and neuroses).

    Ha Orr. I think he was and Joe was waiting for the defibulator guy to get there again. I was waiting for either of them to have a “Howie Rose Moment.”

  121. Blue Seat Horror on

    No, no calzone. I think Stepan has some true clutch years ahead of him.

    Weird to see Prust without a black eye or facial stitches. He’s not playin

  122. Blue Seat Horror on

    No, no calzone. I think Stepan has some true clutch years ahead of him.

    Weird to see Prust without a black eye or facial stitches. He’s not playing hard enough.

    Ha Ha. On they have links to videos. One of them says “Crosby uses his hands for more than scoring.” I know they’re doing this 24/7 all access thing, but that’s just too much information.

  126. >>Hammerhead- I love that name. My Uncle used to always yell at us, “You Hammerheads!”

    I love the song “Hammerheads” by Shriekback.

  128. What is the deal with EC The freak does a good thing and doesnt come out for his 3rd star and throw the puck? This kid is a head case, probably sits in his dark apartment screaming MOTHER BLOOD MOTHER BLOOD

  129. well
    that was a nice turnaround to my day!!!

    things were going well until i got another bloody nose
    and ended up at urgent care and missed the first period
    (good thing!)

    kind of calm (a.k.a. light-headed) for 2nd and 3rd
    so i got to enjoy without getting too involved.

    nice move by Eric.
