Sharks will win Game 7 tonight; Rangers host clinic


… Well, I think the Sharks will win. I kind of hope they will. Even though I think Detroit is awesome to watch and so full of character players. Even though I don’t really have a dog in this fight.

But I want to be proven right. Remember at the beginning of the playoffs when I went on and on about how there’s no momentum carryover from one game to the next in the playoffs? Well this would certainly be proof of that, wouldn’t it? If the Sharks win Game 7, it can’t be argued that momentum carries over from one game to the next in a series. It just can’t.


Another part of me wants San Jose to finally get the gorilla off its back and realize some playoff success, and I think the Sharks and Canucks would make one hell of a Bestern Conference Final. On the other hand, so would Detroit-Vancouver.

Ah, I don’t care. All I hope is that Game 7 is even remotely as entertaining as was Game 6.


This from the Rangers:

  1. Wow – where are all the boneheads this morning?? Hey, Carp! Getting out to hit the little white ball at all this weekend?

  2. And This One Will Last A Lifetime on

    I am rooting for the Sharks, but the Red Wings look too good. I would not bet money on this game.

    When my youngest kid was young, he played in a roller hockey tourney on the USS Intrepid. It was around 1999 or 2000 or 2001 (before 09/11). There were 5 young Ranger prospects there and they all signed his hat. Three of them were Lundmark, Brendl, and Blackburn (I think) and I would have to find the hat and be able to read the signatures or see if my son remembers the other names. Anyway, your posting reminded of that.

  3. And This One Will Last A Lifetime on

    Oh, and all those Ranger prospects that were there that year, were suppposed to absolutley great

  4. JR called out Patrick Marleau the other day, calling him gutless. A tad dramatic and pretty harsh terms I agree, but get this: In 13 game 6 PO matches Marleau has played in over his career for the Sharks he’s managed but one measily assist.

    Talk about coming up small in big games. Geeesh….

  5. Stranger Nation on

    Please Red Wings win this game so we can watch the artist continue his work. That and Heatley is a punk arse. #55 on Detroit is a monster in this series – great hits and timely goals.

  6. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Detroit wins this and what could stop them from winning the Cup? MOMENTUM.

    Just kidding. But I do hope they win!

  7. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Wow – Somebody better photoshop him out of that team photo!

  8. not that i really care who wins but tonight i will be rooting for wings for 2 reasons.

    1. would love to see another 0-3 comeback.

    2. the better story in hockey is the sharks blowing this and having another playoff failure. guys like thornton and marleau who have been under criticism the last few years if they lose tonight it may be time to blow it up in san jose. much like the caps losing the better story tom is the sharks losing.

    3. also dont think for one second NBC is hoping wings get through. they want a wings bruins cup final in the worst way. could you imagine a tampa san jose final. we on rangers report may be the only ones tuning in

  9. bye bye Frolov…you now join the honorary list of players “Thanks, but we hardly knew ya”

    say hello to Higgins and Kotalik…if you ever see them.

  10. the top 2 lines in hockey next year.

    1. getzlef perry ryan
    2. crosby neal and jagr.

    i hope jagr doesnt go there

  11. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Are the Rangers going to sign any of those kids from the Youth Clinic? Let’s get in early on some of them.

  12. too bad he suffered such a bad injury… no one knows how much he could’ve contribute down the stretch and playoffs.

    I didn’t see any lack of effort from this Euro pansy and he would have been a definite upgrade over EC in PO’s

  13. He was never a liability on the ice but I don’t think he was a good fit with this group, his effort was questionable at times…I totally understand why LA fans ran the guy out of town….

    Wonder if he’ll keep trying the “wrap-around fail move” in Russia?

  14. Doodie

    quite the apposite… they have plenty of it now

    i remember those days when stores were practically empty and you had to bribe the sales woman to sell you food from “under the counter” as we used to call it. Yup… you had to pay a sales person money for her to sell you food that she is supposed to sell in the first place and not hide it so she can make extra money.

    And we had to know the schedule when fresh bread was being delivered and we ran to the store to buy the bread before it went “under the counter”

    The good old Soviet way of doing business!

    CCCP – sounds like Capitalism in its purest form!

  16. One of the most dynamic CCCP skaters I recall years ago was a guy named Zvelod ?? Bobrov, and he was like a dynamo on the ice. No one could keep up with him. Terrific scorer, and I do believe he was the fastest skater I’ve seen to date. Never heard any more about him. the next guy who impressed me mightily was named Kharlamov, and he was a one man gang some years later, but he also passed from the scene. These were really top drawer skaters and no one in hockey today including Ovechkin, could touch them.

  17. Doodie Machetto on

    fran, if you like good skaters, keep an eye on Darren Helm of the Red Wings tonight. He is faster with the puck than most players are without.

  18. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Capitalism the Soviet way!

    (I like the way it sounds too)

  19. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Sally! Straight Soldier! The Burly Beard Winner!

    Hip hop – Hooray!

    Hip hop – Hooray!

  20. Yessss, the sharks won. Sucks for all you Detroit fans. East coast gets way too much attention. Its always about east coast hockey, but now at least the west coast will get the attention it deserves.
