It’s Go Time!


I have nothing to add. So I wanted to just make sure you guys got a blank slate for your usual game-day hilarity.

If I do get a few moments to check on any new info, I’ll update here.

My guess: Sean Avery goes back in. Not sure for whom. But there are a few candidates after that stinker vs. Ottawa.

Henrik Lundqvist, no doubt, starts again — his career high 20th consecutive start.

Scoreboard watching tonight:
Devils-Buffalo Baby Buffaloes
Lightnings-Former Whalers

  1. please explain how Kreider is NHL ready?? Sure Tortorella said he’d like to have him but he probably assumed he was dominating at the NCAA level when reports told him about his production in the beanpot and in the WJC

    Out of all Rangers NCAA and Canadian University prospects, Kreider has the fewest amount of points and fewest PPG. He is 7th on his team in scoring (6th in PPG). You dont see collegiate players jump to NHL right away from the NCAA and making an impact unless they were top scorers.

    Stepan, Toews, Kessel, those guys had over twice as many points as Kreider has now in the season before they turned pro. He needs to go back to BC and score some goals there before he comes out…

  2. Ria (the silent bonehead) on

    THANK YOU Carp!!!! hit them hars & hit them often guys LETS GO RANGERS!!!!!

  3. Sam Rosen: “Nobody loves the game more than Recchi”

    I bet Howe, Chelios and few thousand more players would beg to differ

  4. Ria (the silent bonehead) on

    Linda don’t know if you heard that they renewed fringe for another season

  5. LinCalPrustBoylahan on

    no such things as too loud ILBZOLANZA

    thanks Ria, my ex told me yesterday. he made my day

  6. >>JB… 3 freakin weeks until the next Fringe…grr

    Oh no! I haven’t watched this week’s episode yet.

  7. LinCalPrustBoylahan on

    yea, not too happy it’s 3 weeks, and there’s only 4 episodes left…even more grrrrrrr

  8. >>…they renewed fringe for another season

    That’s excellent news! What’s the word on “V” renewal/cancellation?

  9. LinCalPrustBoylahan on

    both Pedo and Joe are just creepy,make your skin crawl, leering men…. feel like you need to take several hot showers after looking at them for too long.

  10. Ok, so Boston didn’t think starting their number one goalie wasn’t necessary against us.

  11. Ria (the silent bonehead) on

    Glad to be of help dde anything else you need to learn like “cut & paste” lmao

  12. Izzy Mandlebaum on

    20th consecutive game for Lundqvist. That doesn’t seem like a positive for the Rangers. Seems to happen every year for one reason or another. I hope they clinch a playoff spot soon so he can get a little rest…

  13. This is going to be one tough match. I don’t have a good feeling about the results.

  14. LinCalPrustBoylahan on

    JBstradamus, I hate when you have those feelings cuz you’re usually correct! Hope you’re wrong today

  15. LinCalPrustBoylahan on

    ugh here comes round 2 of the storms!

    Dear Mother Nature

    Rangers fan stuck in Alabama

  16. nice avery turtled, spun campbell around and threw punches when campbell was down. very professional

  17. Someone just called my apartment and asked “Bridget?”

    I said “Do I sound like Bridget?”

    He said “Yes”


  18. Doodie Machetto on

    “Apparently Danny G is having a career year offensively

    …not so much defensively though.”

    Career year offensively for the opposing team.

  19. >>I said “Do I sound like Bridget?”
    >>He said “Yes”

    You should have replied, “This is Peggy.”

  20. Problem with blocked shots is you don’t know what would have happened otherwise, kind of like sliding to block a pass.

    See the unblocked shot by Gaborik against Montreal.

  21. This is going to be one tough match. I don’t have a good feeling about the results.

    LMAO, come’on man, “I don’t have a good feeling about the results” should be your name

  22. What is so special about “Original Six Matchup” that Sam Rosen must keep reminding us of it?

  23. LinCalPrustBoylahan on

    they’re putting chips in ice cream now ORR, i don’t see why you can’t put them in a blender with some rootbeer lol ;-)

  24. LinCalPrustBoylahan on

    dde, joe would sound hilarious going on and on about someones big body though

  25. TheMessiah94 on

    What is with MSG constantly talking about other teams players? Other teams broadcasts don’t do this. I just don’t understand the point of it.

  26. LinCalPrustBoylahan on

    look forward to the crosby injury update with about 10 minutes left to go in the game!

  27. billybleedsblue on

    Blueshirts now have 5 20-goal scorers. Nice! Anisimov is 2 away from joining the club, and then Prust has 12. hahaha. SWEEEET.

  28. Rangers played ok, but is it me, or does anyone else think that Boston is just gliding a little bi?

  29. OT.. but anyone got any restaurant recommendations in NY, for two Norwegian chicks on their first NY trip? :) Not to expensive. We’re staying close to MSG.

  30. billybleedsblue on

    ilb, I agree. Maybe they are slow to start for the matinee today… Let’s hope the Rangers can stay ahead of them!

  31. Dubinsky Haters Inc on

    Did you all see that first goal? Dubi didn’t pass, He didn’t shoot either! He just sat there on the bench!

    Trade Dubinsky!! He’s worthless!

  32. Rhode Island Ranger on

    Stuck with the NESN feed here in the Ocean State. The Bruins announcers are the most shamelessly dishonest homers I’ve ever heard. They were still bellyachin’ about a marginal missed offside call when the Rangers scored off an offensive zone faceoff a century later! Pathetic.

    The Bruins look like they’re still hungover from Thursday night’s post-Habs hooley. A couple aspirin and some cold pizza might help. LGR.

  33. I just have a feeling that Boyle is guy that keeps the room loose, but focused at the same time.

    Anyone see him do the Artie impersonation?

  34. LinCalPrustBoylahan on

    lmao ilb! that was a nice surprise on what is turning out to be a terrible saturday. Hopefully the boys pull out a win so I have something to smile aboot

  35. TheMessiah94 on

    ccc – pretty much all broadcasts interview players on other teams. I’m referring to the kind of little updates that msg constantly does about Cindy, and now Pronger.

  36. These guys complain without even knowing the rules! The NHL rules explicitly state, “However, a player is permitted accidental contact on an opponent if the act is committed as a normal windup or follow through of a shooting motion.”

    Chumps. Almost as bad as the Pens announcers… not quite…. but almost.

  37. LinCalPrustBoylahan on

    yes Mess, the ‘during the game updates on everyone else’s players’ . yawn, who the byfuglien cares lol

    although, we did have our first drury update in about a month last game lol

  38. Latona… anything except norwegian. hehe..
    Just somewhere that’s nice and New Yorkish..

  39. I feel like if they pick it up a notch, they can run away with this one. Boston is still gliding.


    I guess the bruins dont realize the rangers could be their first round matchup.

  41. Been sleeping with the game in the background. Heard that Step scored. That should have been his 20th. Meaning we have 6 guys with 20+ goals.

  42. TheMessiah94 on

    The first game I ever went to was in 1979 against the Russian national team at MSG. The Rangers lost 5-2, and there was a long “Greschner sucks” chant. I started chanting it too, and my father belted me. Lol


    Bruins much have a touch of rangeritis they score 7 goals 1 game and struggle to score the next!

  44. Original 6….Funny story…Me and Mama were out at an Indian restaurant, she was wearing an Original 6 white sweater. She leaned over to try some of the stuff I was eating. Got the stuff all over her sweater. I couldnt stop laughing, and said I wanted to smear the food on the back of her sweater over one of the team logos. She of course knew I was angling at the logo of today’s opponent.

  45. I can’t help but laugh every time I see Fedotenko’s rosy cheeks.

    Such a ridiculous call on Gaborik.

  46. I know Gabby hit the guy from behind, but… I thought there had to be actual contact with the boards for “boarding.” Not just his hands. Weak.

  47. Why can’t they say when the Rangers play the Panthers, an original 26 matchup?

  48. They need a cooler nickname for original six. Like “O-6” matchup or something

  49. LinCalPrustBoylahan "It's an ORIGINAL SIX matchup" on

    that enough was NOT to youse guys by the way!

  50. LinCalPrustBoylahan "It's an ORIGINAL SIX matchup" on

    that should have been a ‘glassing’ penalty

  51. 4generations 4 cups on

    For whomever was bitching and moaning about dubinsky falling down, somebody named Nicholas i believe? That was Dubinsky falling with somebody shadowing him and drawing a penalty. Gj being a Dubi hater.

  52. Who are the Original 6 posters on this site?

    1. Carp
    2. _________
    3. ________
    4. _________
    5. _________
    6. _________

  53. Hi Krisy! :) 4everwanker, learn the English language. virginOrrblowsky, those are my realities!

    LQ just got run intentionally.

  54. These Bruins announcers are epic CLOWNS …

    They just said “look at that late fall by Dubinksy” … WTF are they smoking?

  55. That looks like the end of Vinny for a while. Probably a torn MCL and a concussion.

  56. LinCalPrustBoylahan "It's an ORIGINAL SIX matchup" on

    damnit… get another goal before the chippiness by the bruins hurts someone

  57. TheMessiah94 on

    JB – I was supposed to see them at Red Rocks in Colorado 2 years ago, but the show was canceled due to weather. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen them.

  58. LinCalPrustBoylahan "It's an ORIGINAL SIX matchup" on

    it is so lame how these minor leauge chants have made it to the nhl.

  59. Can’t wait to see if King Henry plays the third. I bet the intermission “rest” is going to make him hurt more.

  60. >>These Bruins announcers are epic CLOWNS …

    The play-by-play guy, Jack Edwards, is a complete idiot; the other guy is not as bad.

  61. LinCalPrustBoylahan "It's an ORIGINAL SIX matchup" on

    LMFAO @ that guy inthe black jacket!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  62. Tiki you realize that Orr probably doesn’t care what you call him. He says the Knicks stuff to get you riled up.

    Orr, don’t egg him on.

  63. I know it would really kill Tony but wouldn’t it be amazing if this chat board automatically updated? That would be like…Incredible

    F5! Refresh! Ctrl + R!

  64. Newman Loves the Drake Coffee Cake. I like how “The Drake” is also a character.

  65. Tiki thinks I bash the Knicks to piss him off, but that’s not entirely the case. I’ve been bashing them ever since the trade. He just likes to think everything is aboot him.

    But, once again, I’ll be tuning into the 4th period of tonight’s game :P

  66. All this minor league crap to entertain the crowd is embarassing….probably the genius of Bettman. You should see BS that goes on down here with the Panthers. Fans are oblivious…they even have to let them know their team is on a power play. And you should see the awesome choreography from the Ice Dancers. But I guess this is like a minor league town anyway

  67. Ha ha Mannyfried.. Carp could never do that to Tony. So in his honor refresh refresh refresh!

  68. Krisy – I do NOT want to upset Tony. I was just imaging seeing the post’s update on their own. It’s a kind of Magic!

  69. That hit on Prospal can solve all our issues as to who is sitting and who is playing the test of the way.

  70. Avery busted up his hand…
    Stepan took a shot to the head…
    Hank took a shot…
    Prospal and Wolski both got wrecked…

    Here’s to hoping everyone survives the game…

  71. >>…I can’t sit through a minute of Soccer/Football…

    We need to know this because?

  72. Dubinsky Haters Inc on

    Dubi’s ice time is 14:45 after two periods. He’s not even playing HALF the game!

  73. haha. Good Point CTB – he is horrifying looking. He is like a scarecrow with a white-power haircut.

  74. >>Here’s to hoping everyone survives the game…

    Here’s hoping two huge points will make it all worth it.

  75. Mannyfried March 26th, 2011 at 2:39 pm
    Poor Fedotenko. He is like 55 right? He just looks 11.

    Dude…I’m like that!
    I look like a kid!
    People call me Doogie

  76. Staal – You’re super lucky. I think I am the same way. I usually grow a beard so my fiance thinks I look like an adult. She would hate to be “robbing the cradle” with me.

  77. CTB lol about Johnson. I promised Mama I wouldnt get into anything in her absence, and I intend to keep my word.

    Henrik is back!

  78. Vinny Prospal is the same Vinny from the Jersey Shore? Is that what you guys are telling me?

    GTL! DTF!

  79. LinCalPrustBoylahan "It's an ORIGINAL SIX matchup" on

    LETS GO RANGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2 points there for the taking!! Get another goal or two!!!

  80. I be good mon. I just be watchin’ dee Ice Hockey Mon.

    (This isn’t racist because white people from the islands have an accent too. So calm down err’body. Also the singer SNOW made it OK. He is Canadien.)

  81. LOL. Did anyone on the MSG feed catch the linesman or referee yelling “Keep your Byfuglein arms down?”

  82. TheMessiah94 on

    JB – it was rescheduled, but I couldn’t make it so I sold the ticket to a friend.

  83. ddeb – Are you talking about the Indian restaurant? I think it was chicken tikka marsale, but Im not sure. There was a lot of orange sauce, most of which ended up on Mama’s sweater :)

  84. Boston announcers just said “just let go of your stick” and you’ll get the call….Butts

  85. Mannyfried March 26th, 2011 at 2:49 pm

    Staal – “You’re super lucky. I think I am the same way. I usually grow a beard so my fiance thinks I look like an adult. She would hate to be “robbing the cradle” with me.”

    We should form a gang…

  86. LinCalPrustBoylahan "It's an ORIGINAL SIX matchup" on

    this mcdonalds filet o fish commercial SUCKS!! BRING BACK THE SINGING FISH!

  87. LinCalPrustBoylahan "It's an ORIGINAL SIX matchup" on

    ORR, mulder and scully are working on this theory

  88. LinCalPrustBoylahan "It's an ORIGINAL SIX matchup" on

    ‘gomez him’ as in smirk, or give a sarcastically tinged interview?

  89. Linda, Mulder’s too busy going to jail in Californication, haha.

    Leave it to MSG to point out how we got a goal that shouldn’t have happened. You’ll never hear that from Edwards, Brickley, or Milbury.

  90. I wonder what kind of matchup we’re having today. “Original Six Matchup”, perhaps?

  91. LinCalPrustBoylahan "It's an ORIGINAL SIX matchup" on

    thanks for clarifying that CT. i’m behind you guys, so it didnt make sense at the time lol

    maybe she IS blind Orr lol

  92. LinCalPrustBoylahan "It's an ORIGINAL SIX matchup" on

    oh……shes wearing an Avery jersey, THAT explains it

  93. Olga Folkyerself on

    Johnny Boychuk? I thought he said Johnny Paycheck…

    Take this puck and shove it?

  94. LinCalPrustBoylahan "It's an ORIGINAL SIX matchup" on

    that play just earned avery another start lol


  95. They had too many men!!

    I liking making the joke that underage girls should have “underage” or their age stamped on their foreheads. So tough to tell nowadays who’s over 17 or 18, it’s best to stay completely away if you have any doubts.

  96. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Amazing…rangers could wind up scoring 3 goals in 3 games and yet get 5 out of 6 pys… I am nervous… B’s buzzing

  97. Nice try at the EN by Feds. Feds laid down in front of a Chara slapshot, it’s just pain.

  98. LinCalPrustBoylahan "It's an ORIGINAL SIX matchup" on

    raskal to the bench… lets go boys
    this ice cream is not sitting well right now

  99. I swear, I saw the Bruins sweaters starting to morph into red and black. And I swore that they had 7 players on the ice like it always seems the Devils do in the last 5 minutes of a game.

    Yes, I called them sweaters. I do so in honor of my late grandfather, who always called the uniforms sweaters. He’s responsible for my fan-dom.

  100. LinCalPrustBoylahan "It's an ORIGINAL SIX matchup" on

    Latona, so right on that 7 men on the ice thing!!

  101. great game by Girardi, including that big hit on Lucic

    monster effort by Boyle and Stepan too. and of course Hank.

  102. Big win! Career high shutouts for HENRIK! A 1-0 shutout against …… Wow! Maybe this is Henrik’s year!

  103. LinCalPrustBoylahan "It's an ORIGINAL SIX matchup" on


  104. LinCalPrustBoylahan "It's an ORIGINAL SIX matchup" on


  105. The Jackwagon announcer just said that the rangers were able to win because the puck hit the linesman on it’s way down on the last clear. Seriously. Talk about losing without any class or dignity.

    And on another note-

  106. Wooooooooooohooooooooooooooooooooooo! A HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE two points! Never thought I’d want the Devils to win, but I hope they can top the Sabres tonight. And the Caps and Tampa, too.

  107. I swear, after looking at that picture on MSG, Im convinced Tuukka touches young children inappropriately ;)

  108. LinCalPrustBoylahan "It's an ORIGINAL SIX matchup" on

    yikes, rask has manbearpig kennedys nostrils!

    what a battle today was! Girardi played well today for sure!! wow

  109. haha, Boston found out they weren’t facing the lil’ Habs. Lucic got dumped on his arse.

  110. Gift of GAB-orik on

    HUUUUUUUUUUGE game by Hank. He’s playing lights out. Solid D effort…. Girardi was a beast tonight.

    GREAT WIN RANGERS!!!!!!!!!!!

  111. Krisy,

    A friend of mine is NYC-restaurant guru. I’m having her check out restaurants near MSG for you. I’ll post on here when I have the some results for you, so be on the lookout!

  112. Great game. only negative was the last couple PPs. the Rangers gave the Bruins momentum by playing sloppy on those last 2 PPs

  113. Hank is now tied for the 2nd most shutouts by a NYR goalie in a single season with Lorne Chabot who also had 11 in 1927-28…


  114. Keep the pressure on Carolina and Buffalo. Something tells me that Tampa will come out swinging tonight against Carolina after they just came up short last night.

  115. Rhode Island Ranger on

    If they schedule the circus just right this spring, LQ and the Rangers could move out and play all their playoff games in Boston. They wouldn’t lose a one! Hank has Hall-of-Fame numbers in Zoomtown.

    Great win and sour grapes for the Bs’ laughable announcers. LGR.

  116. Latona.. thanks so much.. If you’re on the boneheads fb you can find me there. I’m the one with all the weird letters in my name. øø)) But I’ll look here too.

  117. So how do you score 3 goals in three games and get 5 points? Answer: hire Jacques Lemaire. Oh, wait…

  118. Krisy: If you like italian food, Tony di Napoli is probably the best one ive ever been to. It’s on 43rd street right up 7th about 10 blocks from MSG (a brisk 10-15 minute walk) and take a right at 43rd. Plates are about 20-25 dollars a plate but its family style so one would probably be plenty for just 2 of you unless you are starving. I suggest calling for a reservation because the wait can get a bit crazy sometime

  119. I’ll try to help you too, Krisy. There isn’t that much of good quality places in that area, but if you are willing to walk a few blocks, I can surely help.

  120. Boyle seems like a really nice guy. someone you’d love to be friends with and go out and have a nice time with but also not get involved in some BS

  121. N.CountryNYRFan on

    Huge 2 pts today and I think OPG had his best game as a Ranger. Great defense all game. Lets hope Carolina, Buffalo, and Montreal all lose tonight.

  122. thanks ilb.. we don’t mind walking ;) Think we might be doing a lot of that during our stay.

  123. Tell them on TSN tge Rangers are in top 10 in tge league in goals scored.
    And tell all the whiners from Boston to cry me a Charles River.

  124. Doodie Machetto on

    Orr, your nick-names are usually simplistic, but Pidtophile is actually very clever

  125. I would’ve preferred not having to watch the siege in the last five minutes, but I’ll take that level of commitment and intensity from the team every time, even if they’re scoring goals at a rate Lemaire would call “a touch low”. And I thought the top-4 D and Lundqvist were outstanding.

    I find Jack Edwards to be more of a caricature than offensively unprofessional like the FSN Pittsburgh chimps, but he made a slightly sneering comment about the Rangers not being pretty to watch, as if Claude Julien teams are the 80s Oilers reincarnated, which was a bit odd.

  126. 2.76 goals for per game, 2.34 against

    and the only team in the league to not lose a game when leading after 2 periods. the only one!

  127. Mao Starks, 2-for-18, 1994 Game 7 vs Rockets on

    RANGERS!! DUBI!!! Better than E.T!! Better than the Gremlins! Better than the King and I with the late great Yul Brynner.

  128. goals for by period- first 56, second 71, third 80
    goals against- first 48, second 69, third 59

    third period team for sure…the stats don’t lie
