Probable lineup:




Wolski and Gilroy are prucha’d.

About Author


  1. 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?

  2. Stranger Nation on

    Just said WW has to work on some things to be more consistent. Clear as mud…

  3. Stranger Nation on

    5-3 rangers, see a high scoring affair with Artie having a good game and boyle lighting the lamp

  4. Gorton's fishsticks on

    that’s right. buttchin makes hay vs the patsy teams. expect him to run up his stats tonight

  5. 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 :)

  6. Gorton's fishsticks on

    DeePee spends most of his time on the LTIR. and I don’t mean the railroad.

  7. Go crowd! Go Carp! Go Rangers!

    Potvin’s ducks….isn’t that a down blanket stuffing?

  8. Matthias – I dont mean to be an aasen, but Im so excited at Bayern’s CL exit today! Cant stand Robben.

  9. Gabbo annoys me. Jerk plays for a bronze medal his country doesn’t even win, but cant bother to score on a breakaway.

  10. 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 :)

  11. 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.

  12. 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….:)

  13. 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.

  14. N.CountryNYRFan on

    game blacked out…sounds like i’m missing a good one. Tiki can i borrow HS?

  15. 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.

  16. Not sure I like that they are playing this as wide open as they are. Makes me nervous

  17. MickeyM – I agree. We’ll lose if we get into a run-and-gun game against these guys…Rangers have to establish the forecheck…

  18. Jlone2Bubblehead on

    Gday all.
    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.

  19. no its abouthockey neither on aatdhe, me or had a stream on 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 !!!!!!

  20. rangers don’t have luck on there side so far, should be up at least 3-0, to many post.

  21. ZzZz NYR ZzZzucco " Lets go Rangers!! "...says Greg L. on


    GO GO GO GO GO GO!!!!!!

  22. I agree. We performed just fine without God last game, why change things up. Leave him on the bench and see what happens.

  23. ZzZz NYR ZzZzucco " Lets go Rangers!! "...says Greg L. on

    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!!!

  24. 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.

  25. ZzZz NYR ZzZzucco " Lets go Rangers!! "...says Greg L. on

    YEHAWWWWWWWWWWW!!!! thats what im talking ’bout!!!!

    Yo Carp !!!

  26. Love how Sam thinks McCabe and EC are the same person, too. Cause they look SO much alike

  27. 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.

  28. 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…….

  29. 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…

  30. Sauer (Sour) has been ripping slapshots today. 3 on net by my count! I LOVE IT!!!! This kid is going to be a star….

  31. ZzZz NYR ZzZzucco " Lets go Rangers!! "...says Greg L. on

    Montoya , PA parenteau ..this old Rangers team sucks!!!

    I CAN SEE!!!!! good good game!!!!!

  32. I bet Torts will keep playing Avery. Sean already has a target on his back. That should distract the Fishsticks. How’s MSG, Carp?

  33. 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.

  34. 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.

  35. 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.

  36. but I am resigned now to the fact that I cant see it and you know what I MUST NOT SEE EVERYTHING :)


  37. BTW, Isles are so much faster in our offensive zone in every component. Means, Hallelujah to Hank!

  38. 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….

  39. 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…

  40. Faceoffs 7 of 19 in the period. wonder how good defensively they might be if they could win even 45 percent.

  41. Has Trautwig’s interview dungeon also been lost to the Garden renovations?


  42. 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.

  43. 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….

  44. 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…

  45. The Rangers haven’t exactly put consistent pressure on during 5 on 5. Let’s see what happens. They have to tighten up defensively…

  46. Noah-rury, 28 on

    So, just to be clear…we want the Thrashers and Sabres tonight, correct? Or at worst, no three point Bettman Bonus games?

  47. 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.

  48. 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.

  49. so
    once again
    a player can’t score when
    he’s a Ranger but his touch
    on another team.

  50. 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.

  51. What the heck is going on now ??????????????? 2-2

    the same f…like Bayern !!!!!!!!!!!!! i am sorry Carp :)

  52. N.CountryNYRFan on

    we need these 2 pts tonight, Buffalo or Carolina are walking away with 2 pts either way tonight.

    LET’S GO RANGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  53. Tiki,
    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?

  54. 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

  55. 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.

  56. N.CountryNYRFan on

    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.

  57. Tiki,
    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…?

  58. 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.

  59. We have to counter only with forecheck and hard work and capitalize on their frequent defensive mistakes.

  60. Cally 3-2…but i wanted to write defintely a completly different post right now :)

  61. 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.

  62. LMAO and Furious @ Gabbo for missing that open net!

    Gabbo scores!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s the laser they pay $7 million for!!!

  63. 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.

  64. >>So the Rangers bounced back from adversity. NICE!

    There’s still a third period to be played.

  65. there is a reason Montoya has been traded twice. the islanders traded for Montoya because they needed a goalie badly.

  66. just listening to the game, need to rest my eyes a little bit as I had some problems in the past…..

  67. 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

  68. who put extra go-go juice in EC’s water bottle? And can they do that before every game

  69. 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.

  70. Nice to see EC playing hard, still. If this guy keeps his confidence up, he’s going to be a weapon down the stretch.

  71. The Isles are getting cheated this game. Let’s take advantage!!! Must have a 5 on 3 score!!!!

  72. cheated, it’s about time, the rangers get cheated 80% of the time. It’s about time they get the calls.

  73. “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.

  74. YEAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BIG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MCCABE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ITS A POWER PLAY GOAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  75. 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…

  76. the Rodent isn’t going to be happy
    with the dman dropping down to
    the circles.

    someone tell Sully!!

  77. Spideraasenski

    i believe they added Staal for that second goal.

    still amazing page for every tiny little thing happening
    on the ice.

  78. 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

  79. 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.

  80. 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

  81. MAMA

    you have GOT to talk to your friend for
    the rest of the game


  82. ZzZz NYR ZzZzucco " Lets go Rangers!! "...says Greg L. on

    IM HERE Mao!!!!!


  83. 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.

  84. 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.

  85. ZzZz NYR ZzZzucco " Lets go Rangers!! "...says Greg L. on

    YO JON , ummm like we are winning the Cup dude.

  86. lmao @ hamana hamana hamana! Ive always wondered if that’s Jewish…


    Joe Micheletti is a hueso (the russian version)!

  87. Here we go. Islanders will come out swinging, they’ll take some chances.. Put them away!

  88. first pp of the night the Rangers failed to score on… don’t get to say that often

  89. 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.

  90. jpg, she’s a Red Winger…..! But I hear ya!

    I’m back….! must see stick salute!

  91. Headzo Del Headzo on

    Evenin’ ‘heads – getting on a little late tonight. Nice work by all!

    LGR! – Fry the fish sticks!!

  92. Headzo Del Headzo on

    Also was monitoring the game via Twitter – great to see the annoying Incarcerated Bob get all whiney!

  93. 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 :)

  94. 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! =)

  95. 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.

  96. Tiki – Isles, on the season, have 194 goals – their problem is defense, not offense

  97. LMAO!!! and agree! “What’s the opposite of Negative Nancy? That’s ZzZz.”

    think positive…..

  98. Headzo Del Headzo on

    Avery praising the lord there! Actually surprised he didn’t get a game misconduct for that one!

  99. still dont care about Sid Skid

    jeez oh man, Cally’s turned it up in the past period plus

  100. scoreboard alert – NJ beating Atlanta 3-2 in the third – Whalers beating Buffalo 1-0 in 2nd

  101. 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.

  102. any of you guys at the game, have you gone past those makeshift popcorn foodcourts? Is there a more foul odor than that?

  103. 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.

  104. 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?)

  105. Rangers don’t need to score on this no-name goalie. Rangers need to shut down the Isles offense.

  106. 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.

  107. That’s the Gaborik of last year, right there. But then again, these are the Islanders. 6-2.

  108. No more for Gabbo this game please… Let’s save some of goals for meaningful situations, like at 3-2 this game!

  109. 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.

  110. dshea –

    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

  111. 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…

  112. ToMG – so true – this is only the 13th game this season he has a goal in (I think 13th – maybe 14th)

  113. I’ll beg, while knowing I’ll lose here…..we wanted this win, we got it….can we not enjoy it???? I am!!!

  114. 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.

  115. Four guys with 20 plus goals now. Thought we wouldn’t have any for a long while there.

  116. LW3H- iirc, the same gut stunk up MSG a few days later. I happen to meet him that day, but luckily avoided the bug :-)

  117. I’m with ya Mama! Always great to see the Rangers beating the Islanders – gives me a chance to trash talk to my cousin! =)

  118. 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.

  119. Hi Everyone!
    Told ya earlier that we had this one! Great game-what I saw of it. Just tuned in a little while ago. LGR!!!!

  120. I suppose that answer the questions raised by all NNs before this game. Save to say, two more points in the standings.

  121. 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)

  122. dshea19,
    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.

  123. that look on Torts face says
    “I give him a byfuglien chance and this is what he does.

  124. won’t see avery on the ice again tonight, I know there is only 4 minutes left in the game.

  125. 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??

  126. Torts with multiple F- bombs. I think CCCP and I should teach him some Russian profanities. He is getting a little repetitive.

  127. 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?

  128. 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! ( :

  129. ummm….no reason for isle to freak out on Artie like
    that. talk about real life bonehead.

    i mean, real life carcillo head

  130. N.CountryNYRFan on

    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.

  131. I’m watching the game on Center Ice, so I won’t hear what Torts has to say about Avery. Bummer!

  132. WEEE!

    That was a lot closer than the score through the first 30 minutes….

    I’ll take the 2 points!

  133. 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.

  134. NJ’s not going away, JBytes – but they did just catch up to Atlanta with that win tonight.

  135. Sure does!

    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.

  136. Yep. Avery did himself a huge disservice tonight. He’ll be scratched for a few more…most definitely

  137. 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.


  138. ZzZz NYR ZzZzucco " Lets go Rangers!! "...says Greg L. on

    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!!!

  139. jpg, my Nana would shame/love yours….and couldn’t be quoted here…..:)

    Yeah Rangers!!!!!

    Julie, I’ll check in with you tomorrow… April 8/9 for a bonehead fest…..

  140. Good Rangers win. Have a great night all. You’re my Positive Pussycat, Greg! HAHAHAHAHAHA!

  141. Wow, she’s hot. LOL at “pizazz”! Aves does pretty well for himself off the ice…Just sayin…

  142. Julie, we’ll talk….meaning e-mail….

    the rest of you….LGR!!

    til tomorrow….TA!

  143. 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?

  144. ‘ God, Butt-Chin, Lungfist, and Virus’

    That sounds like the beginning of a very bad joke..

  145. ZzZz NYR ZzZzucco " Lets go Rangers!! "...says Greg L. on

    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.

  146. ZzZz NYR ZzZzucco " Lets go Rangers!! "...says Greg L. on

    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!!!!!

    GO RANGERS!!!!!

  147. ZzZz NYR ZzZzucco " Lets go Rangers!! "...says Greg L. on

    BOOOOOOOOO Bettman Bonus Points!!!! they are fer the birds!!

  148. 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!

  149. ZzZz NYR ZzZzucco " Lets go Rangers!! "...says Greg L. on

    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.

  150. odd. no quotes yet.
    don’t know if a good win has a lot
    of yapping happening
    Brooks asked Torts the wrong question
    about Avery
    and the coach went after the reporter
    kind of like
    the Monster choking Gene Wilder in
    Young Frankenstein

    “Give him a sed-a-give!”

  151. Mister Delaware on

    Avery doesn’t get credit for taking the penalty that let to Prust’s goal and sparked the team?

  152. ZzZz NYR ZzZzucco " Lets go Rangers!! "...says Greg L. on

    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.

    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.
