Bruce Boudreau pre-game

86

Bruce Boudreau:

On the first goal, first period:

“It probably is really important but we’ve been able to come back if they get it, and I’ve seen them come back, too. It’s nice to set the tone, but at the same time, if it’s in the first period, there’s a lot of game to play.”

On his young players having improved, like the Rangers’ young players, in their first series in 2009:

“Well, they had to, because we lost the first two games. So I assume that they improved pretty much. We won the last three; we were down 3-1. So you gain that, ‘it doesn’t scare you to play anymore’ attitude. I’m sure they’re the same way right now.”

On whetherr Neuvirth will be effected by this arena:

“I doubt it. I mean, he’s just a pretty calm guy. He’s got a great demeanor for a goaltender. And, I don’t think it can be much louder than our building. So I think it’ll be interesting.”

On Green being back for the playoffs:

“Well, he’s quite a competitor, and I’m happy for him because he was probably the most upset player, out of a lot of upset players last year. And for him to not get a chance to play in this I think would have been really upsetting to him. So I’m glad to see he’s back, glad to see he’s contributing, and glad to see he’s playing well. “

    NYDNRangers Jesse Spector
    37-24-4 in, 7-9-1 out, plus 2 playoff losses. RT @bogey4040: Jesse: what is the Rangers record with and without Eminger in?

    Torts=jack wagon (on personel issues and equal accountability)

    torts=jack adams (on press conferences and tie selection)

  4. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    I agree with carp who is agreeing with dde

  5. Just found out, puck drop is actually 3:21 today. Thanks to NBC.

    Also had a couple of nice chats with ex-NYRs Eddie Olczyk and Pat (Little Ball of Hate) Verbeek. He was bitching about the McDonagh penalty and some of the pansification stuff.

  6. Edzo? TLBOH would spent 50% of his ice time in the penalty box these days….New NNL…

  7. Carp- I was also referring to fair weather boneheads that ‘sold their tickets’ not coming back.

  8. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    Love, absolutely LOVE the little ball of hate!!

    I’m here ILB!!!

  9. billybleedsblue on

    PAT VERBEEK! DRESS HIM UP! hahaha, I loved seeing that guy as a Ranger! He is of course right about the McDonagh penalty. You take away that play and you’re castrating any teams Defense. What a weak call.

    LET’S GO RANGERS!!!!!

  10. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    Sorry, its my fault. I said something bad about mr incredible mr perfect the greatest coach of all time torts and everyone is boycotting!!

  11. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    ILB
    I will of course be leaving once go time hits to make sure our boys win today!!

  12. eddie eddie eddie on

    why would anyone sell their tix to THIS game…makes no sense….eric said 7th and 8th between 33rd and 34th is rocking tho…

  13. I know, wicky…Whatever it takes.

    i hope that penalty doesn’t discourage McD from doing it again. I hope Torts made that clear….

  14. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    I agree with carp agreeing with dde

  15. eddie eddie eddie on

    lets hope we get some byfuglien calls and bounces today…PLEASE HOCKEY GODS

  16. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    ILB
    torts=clown shoes

    he probably told mcdonut we only stick check on D, eminger never understood that so he doesn’t play.

  17. eddie eddie eddie on

    to whom are they selling their tix to?…PLEASE OTHER RANGER FANS…not to craps fans

  18. 3:21 (12:21 where I live) cannot come soon enough!!

    In the words of NY Jet Bart Scott: “CAN’T WAIT!!”

    Let’s Go Boys!!!

  19. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    1321hrs here…..LGR!!

    TIKI!!!

  20. Stranger Nation on

    Tried getting tix – very $$$ today – almost had a pair of center greens for $130/ticket but scalper/fan bogeyed the deal.

    Rather have Em in. If Torts does not make any changes and they do not put pressure on and look like we are constantly skating up ice, one wonders if his lack of flexibility this time of year works against them. It’s not Bobby Orr and Bobby Hull for that matter waiting to be put in, having 7 D with Gilly on the wing makes sense right now. One definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

    Forever positive – LGR!!!!

    3-2 NYR – GWG – Stepan

  21. dde

    At least those who sold their tickets to the game won’t show up at MSG after a loss to bitch about how they knew all year that the team stunk and are glad to be proved right.

    Probably not the same on here…

  22. Adorer of Blogmama on

    Hey! Im okay, I’ll be even better after our Rangers turn this into a series today with a win and get into the head of Neuvirth in the process.

  23. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    LW
    how about a LGS!! at the end of that last post!

  24. Don’t start making withdrawals on your emotional investment, people.

    LET’S GO RANGERS!!!

    HEAVE HO!!

  25. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    does lebron james laugh remind anyone else of judge smails laugh on caddy shack?

  26. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    dde
    I think it is safe to say all that are here right now are adamant and die hard fans (true blue if you will)

  27. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    where the hell is orr, grabby, mickey, sally, morg, linda, mama, greg, bubblehead, bull dog, oleo, josh, jane

  28. eddie eddie eddie on

    finish your checks, get pucks on net, drive to the net, and move those feet…..keep it simple

  29. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    NYDNRangers Jesse Spector
    Maybe that’s why warmups haven’t started yet. RT @8kpower: does torts even know what the lines are?

    LMFAO!!

  30. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    I just never went to bed last night

  31. ilb Carp says 3:21 puck drop NBC they should have something, not the same as MSG though

  32. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    Thought this was sort of funny, but at the same time not really..

    Highly touted New York prospect Carl Hagelin made his AHL debut Saturday night and in true Rangers/Whale fashion, took a hooking penalty on his very first shift.

  33. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    Mama
    how many laurels are you going for today??

  34. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    dde
    torts will probably match up gabby EC prospal against that line

  35. I also heard that if this game goes OT and Knicks radio broadcast is coming up, Rangers get kicked over to 970 a.m. Can you imagine?

  36. Adorer of Blogmama on

    I’m all in for today’s game, Mama. I’m wearing my heart on my sleeve, and I expect victory.

    Repost:

    I hope Avery scores 2 goals today and then, after the game, whisks our extraordinary Mama off her feet, thus scoring the hat trick. :)

  37. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    carp
    now that really is ridiculous

  38. Everybody ready for game time??
    Welcome back Tiki! Glad to have you back. We missed you. ( :

  39. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    dde
    ummm with that matchup…how bout….NO!!

    The “brilliant” was for the mama/laurels comment

  40. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    hey mickey

    and if it is go time….later for the sake of our win today!!

  41. I don’t have a good feeling about this one. This is our next to last match of the season.

  42. Well you cannot deny the reasoning of a very important man’ (whose name I have forgotten)..evidently wasn’t important enough…
    made the sage observation that “after all, everybody’s got to be somewhere”……………….now you’ve got to admit, THAT is profound.

    I say this in a plea for understanding and brotherly love to our subdued (but great…in their own realm) players who are oft the butt of sneers and downright disgust..EC, the captain, Avery, the Wooski, to mention a few…..I submit that all of these people belong Somewhere, and now McCabe has joined the class.

    And no submitting the names of various Mets to the group…please.
