  1. man, i even find myself carped tonight.

    anyway, ORR!!

    i noticed that you put ‘rules’ in quotes

    is luongo still the C for canucks?
    don’t know who else….at least in past decade or two
    that was a goalie and wore the C

  2. leave it to larry brooks to put it just right with an
    extra bit of sassy thrown in

    NYP_Brooksie Larry Brooks
    Tortorella post-game lasted 16 seconds. Or about as long as Rangers had puck.

  3. i’m guessing ORR!! left
    yeah luongo has been elevated by canadian media
    to the point that he almost needs to have a shutout
    every game to satisfy them/fans

  4. it’s driving me crazy that it keeps getting reported that it was all on Bell for his pinching in the offensive zone
    as the reason for the first oiler goal
    they ignore Emminger doing nothing on the play
    in fact he was turning around to watch it go in.

    at least Prust was making some attempt at stop the pass
    and then the shot

    Rangers plummet to 11th place.

    AUUGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! I can’t stand it anymore!


    There. I said it! And I really mean it this time.

  6. Er, Czech. Maybe chill out a bit with the spelling police thing? Quoting you and putting (sic) after a word is hardly tearing you apart.

    The subsequent cheap gag wasn’t aimed at anyone.

  7. did not see the whole game or the postgame but there offense is totally inept. 2 man advantage, the yare clueless.

    are dubi, aa, and callahan on the team.

    lucky rupp committed another stupid moronic penalty. they are generating zero offense….

    stepan got to shoot the puck…………

  8. Olga Folkyerself on

    3.14? Carp! I didn’t know you were so religious…

    Philippians 3:14

    I press on toward the goal to win the prize- something, something…

  9. God, that was some heinous, lazy play. That oiler team sucked and the rangers played beneath them. For shame.
