Henrik Lundqvist’s homecoming, against brother Joel. The game is on MSG Network at 1 p.m.
NHL.com’s Dan Rosen previews the game from Sweden, with the probable lineup.
Let’s do this!
How’s the big family, Olga? Haven’t seen them for a while..
I thought Torts would spread the jam a little
It’s a game vs a team of Europansies on ice measured in the metric system. Minimal jam required.
The family is still hibernating until the regular season starts. They’ll be around soon, poking a few badgers cages… :)
I, on the other hand, have come out early, seen my shadow and there will be at least six more weeks of Sather…
This game is in Fromunda? don’t they make cheese there?
..oops, my bad!
Christian Backman is their star D-man.
I, on the other hand, have come out early, seen my shadow and there will be at least six more lifetimes of Sather…
Link to the game from a Swedish site:
six more lifetimes of Sather?
Let’s Go Black Hawks!!!!
Not quite what you had in mind when Sam Rosen said “And this one will last a lifetime” was it?
LET’S GO RANGERS!!
Does he think he’s better than us?
CTB- I think that’s the new Ranger’s Curse. The only question is “Who’s lifetime?”
I turned my mother in law into a hockey fan! She lives in Florida and roots for Panthers! They will be my second team this year :)
Here we go!
just got off the phone with the Swedish family. huge ovation for Lundqvist.
I was watching my mother in law drive a car, and SHE turned into a driveway….
Lundqvist has a brother? Stojl also has a brother! Did you guys know that?? Actually, 3 brothers! Stall, Stawl, and Staul!
Hank wearing an “A”!! Nice! I like that!
“A” for Awesome?
Now it’s Go Time!!!
Lundqvist wearing the Ä...
Wow, he us really BIG there!
No, go and shut out your old team..
All right, drop the puck!
Ha, heard the perfectly timed “Let’s Go Rangers!” during the anthem, just like at the Garden. That fan wins.
Frolunda Indians? What tribe?
Isn’t Laurel at this game?
I have audio and no video….
When will MSG stop annoying viewers with this twitter nonsense?
but did you see how respectful the crowd was during the anthem? Singing along to their own anthem and not screaming like wild idiots during American one?
That on-ice advertising is awful. I hope the NHL doesn’t get any ideas…
nice gesture by avery—->
There were Indians in Sweden? Oy, vey…
excellent point re anthems
Were you guys complaining about all the adverts on NHL rinks?
game in english with decent quality
was that Laurel’s head just now? LOL
Nice pass, Del Z
Who peed in the face off circle?
thanks, i’ll give it a shot
“Ramirent” must mean “pee stain”
Avery shoots wide. That’s a new one :P
Nice passing. Newb 1-0
Wow, what a lead pass.
Newbury will be whaled after this match. 1-nil.
Lol. Goal Song!
My bum is on the Swedish! Swedish!
I’m sticking with the Swede feed. When are Google getting onto real-time audio translation?
I am liking the large ice rink…
we got the wrong Lundqvist
Wow! Lundqvist allows a goal. This guy’s elite?? Pff!
avery mitchell weise…pack line pt2??
FHC fan goal song: Oy oy oy!! LOL
Banana Splits, Bob Marley, Frolunda
Boom Boom will confirm that Sweden is full of Indians.
Judging by how his head is disproportionately large compared to the rest of his body, I think “Ramirent” is Swedish for “Bobby Holik”.
thanks Doodie for the link
(for us out of towners)
can Hank play the puck anywhere behind the net and worry about being called for a penalty?
0 for the game on the PP…trade something.
Rangers have a guy named Stupid Pickle on their team??
Thanks for link guys, even if it’s in Swedish. Nice picture.
Rupp just got muscled off the puck by a Europansy
nice hit by bickel earlier
They just went: “hurrdy fuurdy murdy feella…tight box”
Man, they might as well have sent the Whale to play tonight.
who is this mcilrath kid, looks pretty good
Wider rink = more room for Avery to shoot wide
This game’s kid of boring. I want NHL hockey, not this semi-Europansy carpola.
Oh yes, Gary Roberts. He sure helped MDZ last year. I’m sure Wolski will be fine.
Oops who was that that got felled by the red line monster?
CTB, the rink could be a giant net and Avery would still put it wide.
the link i clicked on from Doodie
is the msg broadcast
Is the main camera always on the penalty box side in NHL rinks? Just looks odd being the other way round in this game.
someone needs to dry the rink on high and shrink it a bit, it is too big
Can anyone get Shanabanned in these Europansy games, or is it out of his jurisdiction?
wicky “nice gesture by avery—->”
I don’t see anything, what did he do?
I thought Euro clocks started at 0 & went to 20 minutes.
How many odd man rushes has Florunda given up?
JimCerny Jim Cerny
after emotional Hank went back to blueline for anthems, Sean Avery skated over to his friend and patted him on back
30 minutes ago
LOL! McIlrath bullying Lundqvist
McIlrath and not as good Lundqvist with some pushing and shoving. And McIlrath gets sent off.
atta boy mcilrath
Prust just took out the goalie LOLLLL
atta boy prustie
boy these games on the big ice are a lot less interesting.
LOL! They miss the interference on Prust, but they sure as hell don’t miss Prust tripping the goalie.
McIlrath is a bully!
umm, apparently these refs forgot it is hockey not figure sakting
Every time they say “Jo-el” I feel like they are saying “Jor-El” and I think how it’s not fair for Superman’s father to play against us.
smart move by frolunda goalie
made it look like Prust ran into him
but it is better than baseball or basketball on any sized rink
“hurrdy furrdeh booda treema crease-clearing defenseman greema burder furrdeh Cam Fowler…”
McIlrath, at the moment, looks better than Erixon and MDZ.
don’t get the interference call on prust. That should be interference on the goalie. These must be NHL refs, stupid call as usual.
Good point on the main camera being always on the penalty box side. It does look wierd from this side…
anyone have a link for a working feed?
From day one my opinion of Delzotto wasn’t very good and nothing has changed my view. Delzotto isn’t good on defense, makes stupid passes, don’t see this guy ever being a decent nhl player.
It’s in swedish
i know a female named
she lets me call her Jor-el
Dan, here ya go
Mikael Renberg in the studio. Ulf Samuelsson coaching another team.
That’s Renberg with the manly looking blonde woman broadcaster?
boy these games on the big ice are a lot less interesting.
Have you seen any of the KHL games? Those teams are flying over there on big ice! It’s just this game that looks slow and boring.
The manly looking blonde is either Eric Lindros or John LeClair.
You sure it’s not Karl Dykhuis?
Legion of Doom.
“McIlrath, at the moment, looks better than Erixon and MDZ.”
I think Erixon has looked the best.
Legion of Broom in the final.
how are you?
plan on sending on you some links
w/ my concert photos using the canon 60d
Ramirent is looking like a good option for top line LW. Think he might be playing right D this period though, thanks to Torts’ incessant line switching.
i try to be a nice husband
and offer to help my wife
set up for an event tonight
and she said
what was i thinking?!?!?!?
(i guess i thought she’s say, “no”)
see you aasens in a bit
i’ll keep up via twitter
i’d like to see those photos, too! i love photography! email me your photos if you can and i’ll email you my website with my own photos :)
The Swedes must have been studying the Rangers PP too much.
Ramirent is what it would look like if EA Sports broadcast games.
Perry Pearn is Swedish?
jpg – I’m here, send away.
I’m planning on shooting the “new” Grateful Dead next week
Backman just embarrassed Boyle.
Bourque can really skate.
why wouldn’t they have an agreement to play 5 on 3 to the game end just for training.
That’s what we want to see from MDZ. 2-1.
Another nice passing.
I guess Mikey likey the extra room on the ice!
Great pass from MZA.
PK = OK
My boss called me into his office and the Rangers scored. Someone describe the goal to me.
Del Z shot the puck, and it went in, Doodie!
Sounds like it’s “Timmy” Erixon in Swedopansyland.
WOW! Thanks Orr! It’s like I was there!
What was that, “Potvin ducks” in Swedish?
Who scored the second goal?
MZA makes a good pivot in the far right corner and feeds it to the slow. MDZ guns it past blocker side. Whooo
I AM SCORE!
this is the best erixon has looked IMHO so far this preseason, but I agree with capt ILB, mcilrath looks the best in this game
Del Z feels free. Simple game!
Ugh! EC scores. Dammit!
Okay – anyone else flabbergasted by the MSG “Seekers of the Cup” commercial?
EC with his “why can’t he do that more often” goal of the month.
MZA having a good game.
Wick, the only problem is, we’re playing amateurs. Which is why I don’t like that we’re playing these Euro teams.
good first pass by bickel
OUCH! This is why Christensen is so frustrating. The guy has tons of talent, but he’s too much of an enigma. 3-1.
Zuc is shining on the big ice…
Geez, why can’t he do it more often? Third primary assist for MZA. All three are beautiful passes.
Christensen looks like Joe Sakic for about one second every three weeks.
So, what’s the injury report on Step-ON?
can we please send the punching bag weise back to ct
Every time I hear “Frolunda”, I think they’re saying “For Linda”.
Then EC plays like Sakic after his snowblower accident.
Avery introduces himself to new goalie Magnus Brodeursson.
Did Avery lose a couple of chicklets?
player in the penalty box was drinking water out of the cup! LOL
Those Europansies and their etiquette!
LOL! Funny injury.
Who was the hockey player who’s season ended after he slipped on chocolate milk spilled by his kid? Haha! So funny!
Avery is going to say that someone called him a fargin icehole in that scrum.
Why can’t the refs let them play? WTB?
Again, sorry to harass, but the fantasy league has a few open spots, and the draft is tomorrow afternoon, so come on in and join. League ID 55940 password rangers
Hope everybody is enjoying the game. Will it be replayed again on MSG later?
Replaying it at 8, Spider.
Oh, Goody. Ranger Power Play coming up…
They should tell Frolunda players to not tuck their jerseys inside their pants. Their names cannot be seen.
Did Stepan really get hurt???
Hannes Hyvönen sighting!
that euro hockey is terrible. this is supposedly one of their better teams, and a Ranger team with most of its stars out are easily outskating and outclassing them
and those big rinks are stupid. they just slow everything down and make for less body contact and more trapping and circling and more standing and watching and positioning instead of hustling and hitting and working.
and the ads are a pathetic joke. every inch of everything is plastered with ads. and that annoying times square like electronic ad ticker just off the side boards is ridiculous.
Someone should tell Hagelin that Elvis Presley is dead.
They give Renberg and Erica Lindrosson pretty much the whole 15 minutes between periods. Shame we don’t get so much exposure to Trautwig.
Never really understood why North Americans see it as sacrilege to adorn uniforms and playing surfaces with any advertising at all, but seem accepting of native sports with thousands of stoppages purely for the purpose of cramming in more commercials on TV.
LOL! Avery not returning because of a cut lip. How unmanly!
So, where is Averypansy?
He broke a nail.
Cut lip fo Avery is as serious an injury as a broken catching hand would be for Hank.
Actually, I like the larger ice surface. The Rangers power play looks less awful per square foot…
Amaizing how easily Rangers go to the panic mode..
I’m just wondering if letters Rangers is a bad spell for PP. No matter what they try, year after year, any possible personnel and generation change, and it still stinks.
MDZ try too hard…and I think in vain.
MZA may be our second best passer after Richards.
I know Erixon is just a kid, and new to North American hockey, but he should have known to slide across the crease and take the body on that goal.
not one of Prust’s better games today
Did I see an Italian flag in MZA mouth?
LOL! McIlroy, Joe?
Hellberg. A good John Housman name.
THAT WAS BEAUTY!!!!
Wow, even Fran would be impressed with their passing today. Rupper!
Was that McIlrath that got burned on that pinch?
Great shift for Hagelin.
USA 2 Europansyland 0
Not sure, CTB. All I know that anyone who tried to look wrong at Hank got dumped, or pushed, or harassed by McIlrath.
Something tells me Gaborik is playing on Sunday.
the one earlier in the game when the guy came out of the penalty box and got a breakaway, it was Bickel who got caught napping.
Boring game. The season can’t start soon enough!
They weren’t bad at all, but I kind of expected much more individually from Bourke and Hagelin on the open ice today in terms of speed and puck handling.
Oh, and I feel Avery’s pain, because I know, that nothing is more important to him than his own face and appearance on Vogue and at first row along catwalk. But I’m sure, that he is not going to let this exhibition’s europancied, unpunished, friendly toothbrush hit, spoil his famous grin in interviews.
MZA, on the other hand, felt very solid, confident and like at home on the wider ice and justified totally his own earlier statement that his is more of the playmaking guy, than scorer and love it.
Hattrick in a desert!
what Stepan injury are you guys babbling about?
he wasn’t in the lineup today so he couldnt have gotten hurt during the game…
I couldn’t find anything anywhere about his assumed injury and didnt see it in games he played. I believe he is just firmly made the team and other “uncertain” players was given opportunity to being seen and prove themselves. That’s it.(I hope).
Hello! Am i alone here? I feel, like totally in a desert and need some lunch points and a drink. BTW, watermelon dessert is good in a desert (no any racial overtones here) after dissent hockey game, where nobody is throwing watermelon rind down on ice to prevent a goal or to stir controversy.
I am 99% sure that i am ready for the NHL season to start!
OK, see you in a playoffs!
Let the quest for Shamwows begin!
i’m 99% sure i emailed you links where you can see my photos.
if others here want to see
(it’s concert photography ORR!! so relax!)
let me know and i’ll post the link here as well.
refresh, refresh, refresh !!!
