Wolski and Gilroy are prucha’d.
Don’t have time to go back and read Tort’s pregamer. Briefly, did he explain why Wolski is sitting or did he tell the press to clutterbuck off?
Rangers win 4-2
Dublowsky, Callaman, God, and Butt-Chin Gabby score.
Just said WW has to work on some things to be more consistent. Clear as mud…
5-3 rangers, see a high scoring affair with Artie having a good game and boyle lighting the lamp
that’s right. buttchin makes hay vs the patsy teams. expect him to run up his stats tonight
Let’s get two points, boys!
Sam Rosen started his drinking early
“The defince went bbback to baksics”
Hi ilb! Orr!
LOL! DiPietro beats up Montoya. Four years later, he steals his job.
Please win tonight.
Well, to be fair, aboot eight different goalies stole his job.
Once again Carp you are doing a fantastic job with your pregame coverage as well post game reactions of players….and of course the reviews of the games even when I dont always agree :)
I would really wish we would have someone over here offering a blog about Bayern, but we dont have it as far as I know :)
I think it will be “Grabner kiss ass night” on MSG.
DeePee spends most of his time on the LTIR. and I don’t mean the railroad.
Matthias, you have to agree with me. didn’t you read the rules of service?
Crowd seems alive early on
There you go. Ping!
Hollweg needs to rip out some Martinek stitches.
Go crowd! Go Carp! Go Rangers!
Potvin’s ducks….isn’t that a down blanket stuffing?
Matthias – I dont mean to be an aasen, but Im so excited at Bayern’s CL exit today! Cant stand Robben.
How you miss wide on a breakaway! Ughh! Fuggin Butt-Chin dork!!
Wolski would have scored there.
Yep, that’s our “elite sniper”.
Keep pressing, boys…
Gabbo annoys me. Jerk plays for a bronze medal his country doesn’t even win, but cant bother to score on a breakaway.
and this is why Avery shouldnt be playing
No Carp, my english is so bad :)
but its seems to be that i dont get a good stream tonight for the game, the one i was offered was just terrible…..its just fitting tonight after the shocker from Bayern :)
There you go. Nice move, God!
That’s a 5 minute major
clean boarding call.. i think
well thats 5-10 games, 3 for hit, rest for reputation
Surprised he didn’t get five minutes.
crowd seems up tonight. Me like…..
He’s lucky he didn’t get 5
by no means was that clean
Matthias – If you need a stream, you can have my hockeystreams account for the night. Just email Carp and ask him to forward you my email address. Ill give you the username and pw.
IN PRUST I FUGGIN TRUST!
Prust with number 5!!
Prusty resiliency! 1-nil.
who do you Prust
And McMonster, too
Capuano looks like a newly-divorced security guard who’s been drinking on the job.
Listen to Don and D. Maloney on the Rangers Radio
someone called Prust as monster tonight….me bow to you….
Prust is 27? That’s OLD!
Avery should get a plus 1 for that.
PRUSTACORE!!! Shortie #5 for #8
It’s just pain.
Thanks Tiki its not necessary…..Rangers score !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Matthias, I always do…sadly, they are behind the broadcast so it’s a lot of work for a local who’s also watching and blogging….:)
I’m liking the start, minus the retarded penalty.
Fact is, Prust has more desire and urgency than Gabbo.
Carp, lol…it’s just another short-handed goal…..shrug
Raise your hand if you love it when Carp’s at a game :)
And there’s the textbook way to not play the 2 on 1 by McMonster – go to the guy with the puck leaving the pass wide open.
Both teams are flying right now.
McDonagh might have saved that goal.
Wow! A certain Swede just OD’d on Viagra.
Let us know when he’s scoring.
Just talking about the breakaway and the subsequent effort and persistence of Prust. Gaborik’s flying, but that doesn’t put goals on the scoreboard, that’s all we have him for.
game blacked out…sounds like i’m missing a good one. Tiki can i borrow HS?
Should be 3-0
um, hand…see 7:19 post
Carp – I’m glad you mentioned a defenseman who played the odd-man rush correctly on Saturday. How do you feel about McDonut on that last one?
LOL @ Mama
where can i watch online ??
Gaborik blows, like all the sather 7 mil plus a year free agents he signs. I would definitely dangle gaborik if I’m sather in the off season and see if sather can fleece another team. sather seems to do good in trades, free agents sather blows but trades, good.
N Country – Yes. It’s yours tonight.
Montoya is huge! Literally!
On AATDHE.ME, but not streaming yet. Anyone else have it, or something else?
Hand, mama…If you insist
Not sure I like that they are playing this as wide open as they are. Makes me nervous
Try this site
MickeyM – I agree. We’ll lose if we get into a run-and-gun game against these guys…Rangers have to establish the forecheck…
thanks Tiki :)
havent heard Averys name since the boarding call.. he benched? he should be for at least the rest of the period. Then set him loose on the energy line.
Fedotenko just plowed through Molson. Is there still snow on Broadway?
Jeez. Hank’s stopped too many quality chances.
run and gun isn’t the rangers style, need to settle down
Thanks Orr. It came up on my security as spam, so guess I’ll listen to the radio.
yo, fellas… DEFENSE.
He shouldn’t have even been in the game. Should have stuck with Wolski.
man in all alone behind the shutdown pair. that never happens.
no its abouthockey neither on aatdhe, me or livetv.ru..I had a stream on myp2p.eu but it was so bad, you cant watch it you would get headaches after a while….:)
but you know what gives me the opportunity to listen to Don !!!!!!
rangers don’t have luck on there side so far, should be up at least 3-0, to many post.
That 5 minute major by God earned him a spot on the bench for the rest of the period.
Isles could have 3 goals already….Hank is keeping us in this…
LOL, Carp! No never!!
GO GO GO GO GO GO!!!!!!
no, avery’s been playing.
I agree. We performed just fine without God last game, why change things up. Leave him on the bench and see what happens.
God needs to draw a penalty, at the very least. Take a punch.
Haley with the miraculous recovery.
McCabe needs a PP goal here.
YO ORR , that link dont work…least it wasnt a fake by you . BOOOOOOOOOOO cant see , canr see!!! im blind!!! noo ..I just cant see the game!!!
GO RANGERS!!! we need this , we want this!!!! This is OURS!!!
What goes around comes around, I guess.
wonder if Avery gets suspended now.
lets go PP
McCabe plays 2-on-1 correctly. where the byfuglien did he learn that?
This Hamonic bouche needs a shot to the nose!
Exactly, Carp. Haley looked like he’d never stop blinking after Avery’s hit.
From not watching Girardi! LOL!
shoot, got a cal from chicago….must take…..gonna miss some stuff
SNITCH! The guy with God is his actual name! lol
EC with a riffling snapshot…NICE!
Man, does EC have a wrister!
All he needed was a little prucha’ing to start producing. 2-0.
LMAO! The Rangers fans are totally out of sync with the goal song.
The guy was shaken up immediately following Avery’s should have been 5 minute major. Let’s not think every guy is faking an injury because he’s gets up shaken and wobbly. I say, Im glad that Haley immediately came back and that he wasn’t seriously hurt.
YEHAWWWWWWWWWWW!!!! thats what im talking ‘bout!!!!
Yo Carp !!!
YES! keep going
Cheez! Of all games not to be able to see!!!! Ugh!
Love how Sam thinks McCabe and EC are the same person, too. Cause they look SO much alike
oops did EC score
Trashers up 2-0 against Debs.
Montoya: “I couldn’t see carcillo.”
Ooo an opportunity to purchase playoff tickets. What if you don’t get them?
My Pittsburgh-supporting brother is at MSG tonight. If anyone reading this is at the game (Carp?), starting some kind of Crosby/Penguins ducks chant would be much appreciated.
Wow, Hank has been sharp as hell this period…
did you guys hear the Fishsticks chant?
Lundqvist is playing out of his skull.
Just win baby!~!!!!
When I hear the PA announcer of the Garden, I am just still remember….
Tolleson, La Greca and Cerney were the founders of nhllive years back but two third of those are gone and the show has changed during the years…....
Hank is definitely on tonight!
Is that Avery with another penalty?
In previous years it was a show for the nhlfans, now it is only a promotion show but this is a different story…lets talk Rangers…
what an imbecile…
Sauer has been putting them ON net quite a bit lately.
Avery interfered with the goalie, but someone also ripped down Avery by the neck.
Avery was tired. He had to sit down and rest. On top of Montoya
Sauer (Sour) has been ripping slapshots today. 3 on net by my count! I LOVE IT!!!! This kid is going to be a star….
So who thinks we’ll be seeing Avery next game?
Egads. Crazy stuff going on there.
Montoya , PA parenteau ..this old Rangers team sucks!!!
I CAN SEE!!!!! good good game!!!!!
Whoops, I mean “God”
LOL – JB, great minds think alike :)
WOHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! GOOD PERIOD!!!
Matthias – At least they all work for the Rangers!
He’s lucky Okpiggo pulled him down.
Retarded penalties by God.
I’d love to see Loneranger defend him, and tell us that it’s Torts’ fault he took those penalties.
I bet Torts will keep playing Avery. Sean already has a target on his back. That should distract the Fishsticks. How’s MSG, Carp?
ooo, Patty LalalalalalaaFontaine. Always liked him as a player
the rangers definitely need to tighten up on the defensive side of the rink. I think this was the first game all year that the rangers played a wide open game which isn’t there style or system.
This came up on the ATDHE.ME, clicked the following and the game was there.
Fair call by the referees. Must not be Bill McCreary in charge. We can and hopefully will improve our play over the course of the rest of this game. Henrik has been playing exceptionally the past couple games, it’d be helpful if our defense tried to help him out a bit. Ya know, keep him as fresh as can be and injury-free.
I know itsabouthockey but the stream is so bad….
>>LOL – JB, great minds think alike :)
I cheated; I read your mind, then posted.
Bwahaha! Love the quick wit!
Sadly, Gabby is such a waste. Duby is closest clone to Jagr in this team at puck possession. Never understood cold attitude toward EC, guy is great and timely…Talks mean nothing in game, talent really helps. And finally, I would gladly change Avery for Wolsky left nut.
but I am resigned now to the fact that I cant see it and you know what I MUST NOT SEE EVERYTHING :)
AND ITS JIM CERNY NOW ON THE RADIO :)
Patty is a true New York guy!
You know who scored for the Jackets?
I wish the last four letters of that name was the first four letters. Bwaha!
BTW, Isles are so much faster in our offensive zone in every component. Means, Hallelujah to Hank!
Gabby really is a waste. If his cap hit was $4 million a year, it wouldn’t be so bad. But $7 million for sporadic goal-scoring and injury prone fruitcake….
He’s not a total waste.
I still think he’s hurt.
Pat LaFontaine used to be my hero as I kid. I went to his hockey school as a Squirt, and a Pee-Wee, out in LI. I have lots of autographed stuff. Awesome dude. Damn shame how his career ended…
as a kid*
Faceoffs 7 of 19 in the period. wonder how good defensively they might be if they could win even 45 percent.
Has Trautwig’s interview dungeon also been lost to the Garden renovations?
You’re right, Orr. He may be and probably still is injured. But that’s why it was a waste of $7 million for the guy. I know you agree with that.
I just can imagine if you start slow into the season you aren´t starting with five or six goals in the first ten games and you are not fully fit and you dont get in your rhytm you loose your confidence and then you suffer through such a serious thing like a concussion
I have some sympathy for Gabby ! that he is a real shooters he showed last season..
just my opinion….
posted this on the wrong thread but you could tell right away the Rangers are gonna run away with this one
rangers came out flying, lundqvist is sharp. gonna be a laugher folks…
It’s only his second season. He had a good first year, and a second injury plagued year.
Too soon to come to a conclusion.
A third goal please!
The Rangers haven’t exactly put consistent pressure on during 5 on 5. Let’s see what happens. They have to tighten up defensively…
So, just to be clear…we want the Thrashers and Sabres tonight, correct? Or at worst, no three point Bettman Bonus games?
See….That’s what I mean….
Open man because?
Wow, awful coverage.
That’s what I ment!!!
He had a great first year, despite missing time with injury sustained due to his misplaced loyalty to Slovakia instead of to the Rangers. A leopard doesn’t change his spots. Gabby’s always going to be fragile and miss games due to injury.
Thank God for that one.
We had three guys behind the net.
Because Dubinsky collapsed too low
Isles should be leading this game by 3 goals…NYR are giving up way too much…
Glad to see that Torts talked to them about defense during the intermissiin.
Afraid, if is not to be a game changer…
Good one LW3H. Maybe they lost the Geico sponsorship for the studio suite. lol
nice hit by McD
I blame this all on #16
Get your cooke together, boys…
whoever didn’t see that coming
raise your hand.
In run’n gun game Rangers will lose to them
And PAP smears it in. That was UGLI-ER! And the Dan Girardi school of belly slide passed onto Sauer.
Our team has played like carcillo this entire game. Only a matter of time before Henrik could carry us no longer. Call a timeout, Torts, and lay into these idiots.
rangers look like theyre cruising gain. bad game so far
a player can’t score when
he’s a Ranger but his touch
on another team.
Time out. Please.
Another stupid move by the D.
Isledorks just having fun…
jeez almost another one on a 2 on 1
This team is a joke. We had a 2 goal lead on a bum team, and we’ve allowed three 2-on-1’s in the period. When you’re leading 2-0, you don’t have to play the opponents’ style of game. Yet, we did. Fools.
Can’t waste such a moments!!!
What the heck is going on now ??????????????? 2-2
the same f…like Bayern !!!!!!!!!!!!! i am sorry Carp :)
we need these 2 pts tonight, Buffalo or Carolina are walking away with 2 pts either way tonight.
LET’S GO RANGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And we haven’t even had the ritual two goals from that All-Star Comeau yet…
you’re wrong – it is NOT a bum team by any means, you like it or not.That’s why we have to be preped very seriously. ...and their offence leave our in dust, any given time, can’t you see?
Debbies – Thrashers 2-2
Torts better rip into those fugg-heads. They’re blowing this game right here.
blue jersey at home =bad karma
how do they just sit back like they won the game after 1 period in which they didnt even look good? they could be down 5 or 6-2 right now. this team is so frustrating. looks like they partied last night or something
Someone needs to destroy PAP. I’m sick of that dork!
What a move by EC!
4ever – I disagree. Isles are a bum team, if we were properly prepared defensively and executed defensively, they wouldn’t have gotten the 30,000 scoring chances that we’ve allowed them in this game. Allowed is the key word, there. We’ve given them all of their opportunities, they haven’t earned them.
I’ve been far more impressed with EC than Gabby of late…
Like I said before …
NYR = two-bit, bush-league, amateur-hour CLOWNS
The Islanders are thinking attack, attack…got to take advantage of that
D needs to stop pinching so hard
Islandorks have been beating good teams. They’re definitely not “bums”
why do our Dmen always lay down to block that 2 on 1 pass, it’s a horrible play and more times than not you get burned, all you do is play the pass and let the goalie take the shooter.
it’s just basic hockey defense. I’ve been playing it 24 years.
i have never dove on my belly to block a pass on a 2 on 1. never
This period is depressing.
Canes up 1-0
why are we skating so slow? get movin boys!
NHL play by play
we only had 4 guys on the ice
for both isles goals
does that sound right?
check out this link.
the stats are wicked crazy
first fight in the stands.
Bison Baby Buffaloes trail. Devils tied.
Was it a good one, Carp?
They are faster in skating, thinking and executing, more precise finishing and much more psychologically relax. It is medical fact. They have 4 forwards, scored more then 20, and we…?
first goal was 4-on-4.
second one doesn’t sound right.
Can’t lose this one like we did to them earlier in the year.
Nah, but the Islanders fan got tossed and the crowd serenaded him with the usual friendly comments.
Montoya looks like a pot-head.
no surprise here, rangers are consistently inconsistent. I still think this team won’t make the playoffs. I have consistently posted this now since the beginning of February.
Every time Girardi pinches in, I clench my fists!
At least we have the lead back.
There we go.
Hit an open net for once
Great, hard working shift started with AA. 3-2
Give that man the “C” already!!!!
Go ahead! Score me a goal! 3-2.
Even that goal was kinda depressing.
And Orr, I agree.
now stop the bleeding
We have to counter only with forecheck and hard work and capitalize on their frequent defensive mistakes.
Cally 3-2…but i wanted to write defintely a completly different post right now :)
LMAO @ thos two Ginger kids arguing with each other next to the penalty box
now is time for McCabe to score a power play goal.
pp for Rangers.
just what the isles want.
give ‘em shorthanded chances.
lets get our 2 goal lead back
4ever – Okay. I respect your opinion. BUT…dont we have 5 forwards near or past 20+ goals? Tiki Jay told me Gabbo, Dubi, Cally, Boyle, Anisimov are at or near 20.
I want to see McCabe goal!
guess the rest of the game will be
nothing but neutral zone
That was no save; he missed the net.
BUTT CHIN DOES IT!
THERE’S THE GABBY WE ALL KNOW AND LOVE!
Redemption Song! 4-2.
FINALLY, Gabby. jeez
Yikes, that was a nasty shot
it’s about time gaborik, still not earning that big check.
I told you Callaman and Butt-Chin would score.
Gabyyyyyy! Guess he has a wrister too
see that you stupid sob
shoot the dang puck from afar!!
NHL goaltending notsoez for Al Montoya.
its about time
That was the Gaborik shot from last year
From 1032 attempt, good efficiency!
LMAO and Furious @ Gabbo for missing that open net!
Gabbo scores!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s the laser they pay $7 million for!!!
He finally scored an important goal.
So the Rangers bounced back from adversity. NICE!
I’m glad they’re not making Montoya look like an All-Star.
hey gabby 4-2
Dubi can just kidnap the puck when he’s on his game.
nice hard work there
Evening Boneheads! Just watching Dubinsky work the puck right before Cally draws the penalty. Dubi is such a monster when he controls the puck. I think he learned that from Jagr in his first year.
Fantastic shift by Dubi and Captain Callahan
>>So the Rangers bounced back from adversity. NICE!
There’s still a third period to be played.
there is a reason Montoya has been traded twice. the islanders traded for Montoya because they needed a goalie badly.
just listening to the game, need to rest my eyes a little bit as I had some problems in the past…..
Not to take anything from our guys, but Montoya is a very average at best and no match to Hank. May be it will deside the game
who put extra go-go juice in EC’s water bottle? And can they do that before every game
Monty has given up four goals, but that doesn’t mean he’s garbage.
He’s been playing really well with the Isles.
He’s done the same with the Yotes, but lost the job at camp a few months later.
He’s still pretty young. Only 26.
lets stay perfect on the pp
Nice to see EC playing hard, still. If this guy keeps his confidence up, he’s going to be a weapon down the stretch.
This is HUGE! Octomom’s pregnant stomach HUGE!
not a 2 man advantage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Isles are getting cheated this game. Let’s take advantage!!! Must have a 5 on 3 score!!!!
need to score here, no excuses.
jpg – I don’t know what it said before, but it now says the Rangers had five guys plus the goalie on for the second goal.
dubi draws one nice
cheated, it’s about time, the rangers get cheated 80% of the time. It’s about time they get the calls.
how about shooting
NOT INTO THE GOALIE’S CHEST?!?!?!?!?
“LMAO @ those two Ginger kids arguing with each other next to the penalty box”
I wish the Sedins would quit whining to the refs everytime a call goes against the Canucks.
I asked him to!!!!!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! 5-2!
WOOHOOO! McCabe! And a 5 on 3. YESSSS
see how well that works?!!??!!?!?
YEAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BIG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MCCABE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ITS A POWER PLAY GOAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TomG, funny attempt by Garth Snow of the Islanders trying to acquire that goalie not understanding the fact that this guy just came back from CCCP to help a contending team for the Cup :)
sorry forgot the name of this guy played for the Sharks for many years…
Finally one for McCabe
Specialty teams now 4 for 4 with one more pp available.
That’s what I’m talking about.
the Rodent isn’t going to be happy
with the dman dropping down to
someone tell Sully!!
3 for 3 PP, when the last time we heard that????
sweet…the luck of the Irish..McCabe!!!!
Damn straight TOMG! About time we get the benefit of some referees gifts! Ill take it!
Matthias – Nabokov
5-2 now, that sounds really good after the shocker earlier the night :)
i believe they added Staal for that second goal.
still amazing page for every tiny little thing happening
on the ice.
where is ILB! LGR!! Where is LINDA? LGR! Where is Greg zzZZzz? LGR!
We scored five goals, and we didn’t even get any help from God.
Go Kings & Preds!
Tonight’s the night the Flames get knocked out of a playoff spot!
Mao, do you need glasses? At 26? I’ve been here all night, bro
LOL. The “goalie outfit”?? I thought he was a fan.
ive never been more happier for a player than when gabby finally got one. but why does he play like this against the crap teams? still dont like him. hes coasting this year. get rid of him slats. we dont need guys liek that if we wanna win a cup in teh near future
Holy hannah! I talk to a friend for a while and all hell breaks loose….LGR!!!
1.45 in the morning..what a luck i am off tomorrow:)
Do Islanders really have a player named Travis Hamana, hamana, hamana?
36 Travis Hamonic
Disagree, Grabachev – Gabby is not a Kovalev – he’s had a rough season. Torts style of “grind, grind, grind” just does play into Gabby’s game. He plays well against the crap teams because they’re unable to glue a big defenseman to him all night long.
*does not play into Gabby’s game – duh (“winning”)
oh hey ilbzo. didnt see ya. i didnt say good morning to ya before. well good morning and good evening! and hopefully good night after the game
see you after game..hopefully :)
you have GOT to talk to your friend for
the rest of the game
IM HERE Mao!!!!!
GO RANGERS!!!!!!!!!! GOTTA LOVE THIS GAME!!!!
totally agree with you, Grabachev. he runs up his stats vs the crap teams.
Rangers are poised for a playoff run and could pull an upset if they are healthy. Lundqvist is capable of carrying the team at least one round if there is a little bit of scoring.
Rangers finally look good in the faceoff circle tonight – 65% through 2 periods (noticeable on the PP – winning those draws leads to increased attack time) – still shocking to me that they’re only 46% on the season – that is woeful.
YO JON , ummm like we are winning the Cup dude.
lmao @ hamana hamana hamana! Ive always wondered if that’s Jewish…
Joe Micheletti is a hueso (the russian version)!
Here we go. Islanders will come out swinging, they’ll take some chances.. Put them away!
first pp of the night the Rangers failed to score on… don’t get to say that often
yea i got ya chris. i love gabby and hopes he does well. i just think he could change his game up a little and get another gear for other games when we really need a big gola in a tight game. last year he was great, kinda tailed off in teh 2nd half though. but hes so skilled i just hate that guys like cally bust their ass to get hard earned goals and gabby could be so much more effective if he had a little fire in his game. most nights he doesnt. thats all.
jpg, she’s a Red Winger…..! But I hear ya!
I’m back….! must see stick salute!
Isles goalie change? Nooooo…
How long before Konopka or Haley try something stupid?
Evenin’ ‘heads – getting on a little late tonight. Nice work by all!
LGR! – Fry the fish sticks!!
Joe Mich is congratulating someone during every game.
Greg, where you been! Miss your positive attitude!
Also was monitoring the game via Twitter – great to see the annoying Incarcerated Bob get all whiney!
Im sorry, 2 straight 30+ goal seasons for Matt Moulson? I think the “referee” doctor at this looney bin has over medicated me. Im not hearing clearly :)
See, that’s what I disagree with, Grab – I think Gabby’s got too much fire in his game for the style player he is. Guys like Cally thrive when he’s throwing his body around and battling in front. I think when Gabby does stuff like that (which I think he’s been trying to this year), he saps his energy away from his real skill – skating and finding open ice. Plus, I think he’s been a bit of a mental case this season because of the injuries. I can’t imagine that it’s easy for a guy who has a history of getting hurt to not worry about getting ANOTHER injury when he’s already missed significant time during the season. Just my thoughts, though. Glad to discuss it, though! =)
oh…yeah….not for nothing…Sweet…:)
Orr – Of course Joe is. He’s a hueso!
or not, Sam
What’s the opposite of Negative Nancy? That’s ZzZz.
Lots of Negative Nancy stuff going on when it was 2-2, wasn’t there? And some before the game.
Tiki – Isles, on the season, have 194 goals – their problem is defense, not offense
Catwalk boy is totally useless.
LMAO!!! and agree! “What’s the opposite of Negative Nancy? That’s ZzZz.”
iBob? Does he still think they’re trading Gilroy for Richards?
that’s on the guy missing during intermission
Chris – Interesting. Do they have more goals than us? That would be pretty funny.
God thought he scored :P
Say this for 16, he’s aggravated a whole cooke-load of Islanders tonight.
Avery praising the lord there! Actually surprised he didn’t get a game misconduct for that one!
Before tonight’s game, 4 less than the Rangers, Tiki
Agree, Carp. And that’s why Torts kept playing him despite the penalties.
Oh, goody, another Crosby update.
Like any of you care.
Hear me go. Crosby kiss ass moment.
our nightly crybaby report…wtb
We care, Carp. Now we know, he ain’t playing Sunday
Wouldn’t be a hockey broadcast without the Crosby crush!
Thanks Chris for the information. Very enlightening.
I hate MSG. Shut up about Cindy!! Man alive…
Rangers better score on this no-name goalie.
another terrible play by the shutdown pair.
OK, you want to make it interesting?
still dont care about Sid Skid
jeez oh man, Cally’s turned it up in the past period plus
scoreboard alert – NJ beating Atlanta 3-2 in the third – Whalers beating Buffalo 1-0 in 2nd
screw crosby, hope he comes back and somebody rattles his brain again.
And up to this moment, so far in the third period, the Rangers gave them nothing. In fact, they could’ve scored a couple themselves.
any of you guys at the game, have you gone past those makeshift popcorn foodcourts? Is there a more foul odor than that?
I will be writing in the strongest possible terms to MSG Network to express my disgust that the pointless Crosby updates keep getting in the way of the Knicks and Devils updates that I expect to see during my Rangers broadcasts.
Clear the byfuglien zone!
Carp – you do point out a lot of Staalardi’s miscues to the point where I notice them, too – do you think it’s simply a product of having the lion’s share of the ice time? I know, technically, you’re against the way they handle certain situations, which I can’t argue with, but do you think maybe we’re not giving them enough credit for the good plays they make? (then again, Joe Mich does that for us already, doesn’t he?)
Rangers don’t need to score on this no-name goalie. Rangers need to shut down the Isles offense.
Girardi is still horrendous.
Parenteau – 44 pts.
Christensen – 22 pts.
In regards to Staal and Girardi… I wonder if all the ice time they have been getting this season is starting to wear on them, that’s why they have been so loose and sloppy over the past couple of weeks.
Mothertrucker! What a shot!
Please to keep that shot the rest of the season, Gabby.
Get the hats ready!
That’s the Gaborik of last year, right there. But then again, these are the Islanders. 6-2.
No more for Gabbo this game please… Let’s save some of goals for meaningful situations, like at 3-2 this game!
Islanders slayer, lol.
Good night fishsticks!
it seems to me when Gaborik has scored this year in a game he scores several times but than disappears for weeks at a time.
Parenteau, plays 1st line minutes with Tavares
EC – missed time this year with injury, and plays a lot of 4th line minutes with non-playmakers
Don’t give P.A. too much credit
Gabby strikes again….
but why only against weak teams???
actually I think the last time he did this was against the islanders.
I don’t know about popcorn smells Carp, but I was in a bathroom full of vomit at Prudential Center earlier in the season. Can’t believe they let the guy who did it stay in the building…
You DON’T want to bump Lundqvist when Sauer is on the ice.
Incarcerated Bob getting a visit from his boyfriend about now
maybe his shoulder has finally healed…his wrister seems quicker tonight
ToMG – so true – this is only the 13th game this season he has a goal in (I think 13th – maybe 14th)
Gaborik with 2 goals?! Must be an Islander game!
>>but why only against weak teams???
Because he’s not “elite”?
That was ELITE…
I’ll beg, while knowing I’ll lose here…..we wanted this win, we got it….can we not enjoy it???? I am!!!
Im not gonna get on Gabbo for his goals tonight. The 3-2 goal was extremely important, restored our 2 goal lead. Maybe he’s ready to contribute to our playoff run. If so, Im ecstatic.
Four guys with 20 plus goals now. Thought we wouldn’t have any for a long while there.
LW3H- iirc, the same gut stunk up MSG a few days later. I happen to meet him that day, but luckily avoided the bug :-)
Can we call the opposite of a Negative Nancy, a Positive Pussycat?!
Callaman scored that third goal for NYR
hey hey hey!
I’m with ya Mama! Always great to see the Rangers beating the Islanders – gives me a chance to trash talk to my cousin! =)
So, Sauer got an assist, but not a plus? Wonderful!
ChrisOD – Granted that is true. Still, we could have kept him for less than Christensen and gotten the same or better production. P.A. has 2 more points than Gabby. THAT should never happen.
The Gabby pity party has begun in Sam and Joe’s booth.
Told ya earlier that we had this one! Great game-what I saw of it. Just tuned in a little while ago. LGR!!!!
I suppose that answer the questions raised by all NNs before this game. Save to say, two more points in the standings.
The 3-2 goal, meaning the goal that put us up 4-2.
Again, dshea – significant time missed by Gabby – P.A. is having a Prucha year – it probably won’t happen again next year – besides, he wouldn’t be producing playing on the NYR 4th line (which is where he’d be if he were on this team instead of EC)
These Knicks and Rangers promos are so incredibly lame.
Yeah, so..? Parenteau – 70 games, always 1 line with Tavares and Moulson
EC – in 51 games, sporadically, scratched, 4 line or with non-producing Gabby.
i really cant take this anymore…
Hey Tiki! How’s it going?
God back in the lineup, what does he contribute?
Three stupid penalties
that look on Torts face says
“I give him a byfuglien chance and this is what he does.
That was stupid, Avery
Julie- were you in the kitchen before :-)
Torts is having an excedrin moment.
Think Torts is upset?
intelligentness happening right there
1…2…3 strikes you’re out if you’re A-VER-YYYYY!
(to the tune of Take Me Out to the Ball Game)
What a dumb penalty by Avery…that’s why he is Tort’s carcillo-house
Julie – Good. You? Any closer to a lighter workload?
He’ll be scratched, definitely. Wolski should be back in the lineup for the Habs game.
I’m not even gonna get into what just happened…..
Anyone know whether Crosby’s injury status has changed in the last three minutes?
won’t see avery on the ice again tonight, I know there is only 4 minutes left in the game.
speaking of PA – anyone else know he played 5 games with the Blackhawks in 06-07?? When did NYR get him? Anyone? Was it part of a trade??
someones not playing next game
Torts: “MF MF MF FFF!!!!!”
I think I saw Byfuglien Mother Byfuglien come out of Torts’s mouth.
For a little while ILB! ( :
Yep, we now know who will sit in favor of WW coming back next game.
This dumbass needs to bring the models to the Garden, and that’s it!
Avery might not see the ice again this season after tonight
Torts looks like he wants to rip Avery’s head off right now
Avery should go for an early shower.
ChrisOD – It was a trade. As I look it up, a conditional seventh-rounder.
Torts with multiple F- bombs. I think CCCP and I should teach him some Russian profanities. He is getting a little repetitive.
guess avery is scratched next game?
Yeah Tiki. I think the OT is going to be over next week for us
The way Hank playing he deserved SO. Catwalk boy exceed Tort’s expectations?
Sauer should not be fighting here… =(
He needs to work on his balance
I love that Sauer takes OFF his helmet to fight.
bets on Avery sitting the rest of the game?
why don’t we ever have someone who can really
why doesn’t Nicky Fotiu show our players a thing or two?
way to get the Isles pumped Avery!
Julie – Happy for you! Just in time for hopefully the Rangers in the playoffs! :)
Sauer’s shoulderpads took quite a beating
I think PAP was a FA signing.
Here we go!
Who didn’t see this coming after the fight?
think gillies is going to come out from the press box
Eddie and Loneranger need to come in to defend God.
What are they chanting?
whats the chant???lol
What was the chant?
What are they chanting at the game?
What were they just chanting?
That’s right Tiki! I’ll be glad when it’s over. Then it will be playoff time! I won’t be able to sit and watch the games from being so nervous watching! ( :
ummm….no reason for isle to freak out on Artie like
that. talk about real life bonehead.
i mean, real life carcillo head
We ought to just bench God next game.
i have to beleive all the rough stuff is also Avery’s fault, before his dumb penalty they were dead, would have gone out quietly.
My guess = “we ate fishsticks”
Apparently “season’s over” according to Zipay.
Scoreboard alert! NJ beats Atlanta 4-2
Now the game is almost complete!
Julie – LOL! As long as you bite your nails, we’ll win!!
I’m watching the game on Center Ice, so I won’t hear what Torts has to say about Avery. Bummer!
Julie – were you cooking up some angry cookies in the kitchen before?!!
No, Tiki, I’ll be making lots of trips to the kitchen! ( :
why isn’t Torts swearing in Italian?
No angry cookies tonight Headzo! LOL
Need Buffoonalo to score two quick goals, and beat the Canes in regulation.
That was a lot closer than the score through the first 30 minutes….
I’ll take the 2 points!
Prust and Boyle rested for most of the third it seemed. i wouldn’t think they were benched but i don’t remember seeing them down the stretch. Good job by Torts.
EC had a great game…
now you know why i don’t gamble
good win needed those points
Jpg- that would be your department
Hey, “Season Over” is our thing and they used it out of context!
>>Scoreboard alert! NJ beats Atlanta 4-2
That stupid team just will not go away.
Always feel good to beat the Isles.
NJ’s not going away, JBytes – but they did just catch up to Atlanta with that win tonight.
I want some Clitsome!
Stick salute! My favorite thing….!
EC did have a good game. Played good in San Jose too.
God was pathetic, and showed exactly why he’s on the 4th line, and exactly why he doesn’t deserve more minutes.
But, I guess it’s all Torts’ fault, isn’t it???
Need Wolski back for the next game, for sure.
fug u season over peeps….
Mama! I may be coming down to the city in May! I will let you know for sure if I do.
Julie, you better! firstname.lastname@example.org
Mama – language
Yep. Avery did himself a huge disservice tonight. He’ll be scratched for a few more…most definitely
I just wrote your email down Mama. Mine is email@example.com
We’ll have to meet up for sure for some fun in the city!
i’ll have to check with Carp
if quoting my Nana
will result in a warning.
He did it to himself.
He’s lucky Torts didn’t bench him after his first dumb penalty. He gave him a chance to redeem himself, but apparently Torts never does that, yet, this is the first time he’s been scratched all season long.
Mama – you spelled wrong!
Who is Avery dating these days?
Good game tonight! Goodnight, Boneheads! Night, Mama! Night, Carp!
Positive pussycat???? Naww I just get behind my team and root root root for ‘em to win. This team ooozes team chemistry and need to get to the playoffs to make sum noise. When the NYR ’s are in the playoffs , EVERYONE takes notice. We play hard and have alot of players whom are rugged . We need to keep winning cuz if those pesty stuiped Devils can go on a winning streak as long as they have…then we should have no problem do it too!!!
Greg! Awesome post tonight! Post more often!!!
good nights guys to everybody….
jpg, my Nana would shame/love yours….and couldn’t be quoted here…..:)
Julie, I’ll check in with you tomorrow…..book April 8/9 for a bonehead fest…..
Good Rangers win. Have a great night all. You’re my Positive Pussycat, Greg! HAHAHAHAHAHA!
NYR, some Sports Illustrated model named Hilary Rhoda.
She’s cute. But, she doesn’t have any “pizazz”
OK, Mama. I hope I can make it in April for the Bonehead Fest.
Wow, she’s hot. LOL at “pizazz”! Aves does pretty well for himself off the ice…Just sayin…
Julie, we’ll talk….meaning e-mail….
the rest of you….LGR!!
He just needs to set up his teammates with model girlfriends before his contract is up.
This is a young group. I don’t know if they have the balls, or star status to go up to a model babe.
LOL! Yeah, he seriously should. Do you think he’s that type of guy? He seems to only hang out with Hank off the ice…do any of the other guys (Rangers) hang out with him?
Cam Ward is coming up with a huuuge game. Fugg!
I know the group last year was mainly God, Butt-Chin, Lungfist, and Virus.
So is Miller, Orr..
And Buffalo loses in regulation!
Luckily it was a regulation win for the Canes.
’ God, Butt-Chin, Lungfist, and Virus’
That sounds like the beginning of a very bad joke..
Tanks NYR_Fan guy . I have been working outta town and havent had the PC with me , I never miss a game but do miss chatting with all ( most) of our ever most faithfull “boneheads”!!! I may be gone but i’ll always be back!!! Plus how much can everyone take? I do come across as overly positive and can become overbearing … but never to myself. I geuss you could say im all fan of our beloved Rangers . NEW YORK Rangers ; Greatest team alive . Only true reward is the Stanley , and that my friend goes to the best team . It belongs back home.
I thought it sounded like the start of an interesting joke!
No Bettman Bonus Point for you, Carolina or you, Buffalo
Great spirit, GregL. We missed that here, bud
Amen, Greg. Well said, man!
LMAO at MickeyM and ORR! It’s a joke in itself…
Yo ORR , I just thought of something , everytime you used your trademark ” Game over season over ” saying …you will be wrong that many times and that could cancelled out any Boogy not scoring 5 goals bet!!?? Poor Boogard was hurt all season , what a SHAM!!!!! BOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
BOOOOOOOOO Bettman Bonus Points!!!! they are fer the birds!!
It’s such a shame that our last game of the season is against the Debs. Not good.
I missed you here big time, your ZzZzo-o-o-o-ming optimism.
LOL, ORR! I have tickets to that game! It should be a good one!
Four in a row. 4th place. BOOM! One point behind Sharks for division lead. Go Stars!
Go Yotes too!
It will be extremely boring. That’s for sure.
That’s a must win game. The season will go down to the wire. They’re going to need a big point streak down the stretch.
I can’t wait till everything is over with. It’s too much to take!
It’s amazing…The Debs are now over .500…Just fuggin unbelievable…
Rangers vs Devils duel it out on game 82 for the final playoff spot…...
Game goes to a shoot out!!!! OMG
Wolski scores with a roof high dandy top shelf where momma keeps her cookies!!!
Next shot …Devils miss!!!! Great save Hank!!!
Lining up is Christenson ( an expert at the shoot out , a pure pro of this art )
He skates right up a and BLAMO right left beuty!!!!! Ranger up 2 -0 !!!
Devils Partick Elias puts one home!!! OH no!!!
Zuccorellooooooooo is up and misses!!!! wtb !!??
Devils need this to tie the shoot out…...
Zack “the sniper” Parise… He skate on in a fakes a few time a BLING!!! OFF the POST!! Rangers win!!! Rangers win!!!! Rangers win erasing the memorie a few year back when they lost in gam 82 of the shoot out!!! Devils are official mathematically eliminated from playoff contention.
Buffalo only has 1 more win…
odd. no quotes yet.
don’t know if a good win has a lot
of yapping happening
Brooks asked Torts the wrong question
and the coach went after the reporter
kind of like
the Monster choking Gene Wilder in
“Give him a sed-a-give!”
LOL! Greg , that would be amazing! I hope I see it live!
ZzZz NYR ZzZzucco ,
You just draw the scenario of my 3rd heart attack.
Does anyone hate Channing Tatum as much as I do?
Can everyone please say “yes”??
YES, BIG TIME, OK?
Yes. He’s a bouche.
Thank you. I’m feeling a little better.
Avery doesn’t get credit for taking the penalty that let to Prust’s goal and sparked the team?
Lets just hope it does NOT come down to that. 4ever , the heart attack part will ultimately always be there cuz when the Ranger do make the playoffs ..its going to be a heart pounder and a nail biter all the way. Good thing is , is we have Hank ,Staal and Dubinsky. Those three will be our “horses” who will make that difference . The playoffs was so stressfull a few years back and then again the year before with Jagr. Its always stressfull and even when the Rangers walked through the playoff they always drive the Daggerr further by taking us to a game 7 in ‘94 . We always seem to be put through the ringer so this year do not expect any different . We will not go down with out a fight though. Rangers will make us proud but all of us will have pacemakers some point in time.
Oh Greg, please to NOT let that scenario happen.
actually Mickey the senario is a good one . We scored first and then NJ had to tie…all the presure was on NJ to score just for the tie. That would be the less stressfull senario just think if the Devils scored first and twice where we tied it up and it went 17 rounds where McDoughnut scores it that would be a nail biter.
