Tortorella pre-game


Same lineup. Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal. Stu Bickel remains in the lineup, and Steve Eminger, now on the active roster and cleared to return, remains out.

Could be that some rough stuff is expected. Remember, Mike Rupp ticked off the Flyers with his Jagr Salute in the Winter Classic, and the Flys had all their knuckleheads in the lineup yesterday against New Jersey — the knuckleheads did not play in the Winter Classic.

Anyway, it can’t hurt to have Bickel in there, just in case, and to keep Eminger’s healing shoulder out of there.

But John Tortorella answered that question in a very brief presser — nobody had any questions:

  4. Gogo ogg ogg oogoo!

    If the Flyers are dumb enough to dress Shelley, Sestito and Rinaldo – they usually are – then bring it on.

  5. This team is going to get destroyed today. It’s going to be a complete display of utter-ineptitude.

    Rangers will win , I garenteee!!!

    Garauntee win night TONIGHT!!!!

  7. ZzZz NYR ZzZz© " Don't stepan the logo!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Yo Miami , Gaurentee win ….we win GAURENTEEED!!!


  8. The only thing that’s guaranteed is that, come April, this bush-league squad is going to be struggling to make it in as the 8th seed.

  9. Manny, I covered a basketball game last night. One of the players was named McCabe. I kept yelling out “Caber!” People thought I was an idiot. Maybe they weren’t wrong.

  10. Everybody was talking recently at the ASG about what a great guy Scotty Hartnell is…

    Well, he is a big piece of clarke in my book…he’s not a harmless clown like the media made him out to be…he plays on the edge and crosses the line consistently….

    At the end of the Winter Classic he was swinging his stick at Ryan McDonagh, starting all types of crap after the buzzer….idiot…

    And, Jagr shouldn’t get booed…it’s your right as a Rangers fan…but it looks moronic….

  11. Quote from yesterday by Hartnell: “First two periods, I was embarrassed to be a Philadelphia Flyer.”

    I agree with about 67% of what he said there, which is rare.

  12. Feel better, Yorktown…

    Miami- 8 seed will be a stretch come April 1st…

    I wonder how full the MSG will look this afternoon considering people are getting ready for SB tonight…

    Thanks c giacomo !!!

    Didn’t they do this in 2008, Ranger matinee on Super Bowl Sunday?

    Ahh yes, answered my own question: Rangers – Habs – 4 – 1 Rangers.

    It was a glorious day for New York indeed !!!

  15. ZzZz NYR ZzZz© " Don't stepan the logo!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Thanks NYR_Fan , I am kinda embarrassed cuz Jagr carried this team on his back and to not get his contract ext because of Joe Thorton winning MVP and then he leaves to europe and gets HAMMERED by classless Ovechkin then to ultimately sign with the Flyers this year….just leaves a sour taste in my Ranger mouth.

  16. Yea, you know the flyers are going to play there usual goonery dirty game when they dress the three stooges Shelley, Sesitito and Rinaldo. Hopefully the rangers will play smart and let those three losers take penalties. Of course that is if the refs ref a good game, if the refs are blind than it could get ugly. Hopefully no rangers get hurt in the process.

    Mikey, i’ll try to find out from spider. Homeland Security seized firstrowsports a few days ago…

  18. HageLinCalPruBoylahan on

    tomg, game is on NBCSports/Versus/OLN, owned by Comcast… so it will be pro Flyers all day. Maybe we’ll be lucky enough to have that Philthy born and bred ref from the Winter Classic too

  19. Oh, yeah, Linda! Including the SB, lol….Will you help me with the official football rules, lol?

  20. HageLinCalPruBoylahan on

    ilbzo, they don’t even have todays games up on yet… wow, if i can watch on the comp with Sam and Joe, i’ll be much happier lol

  21. morning all! Wake up at noon, NY teams beating Philly and Boston teams in the same day….today’s going to be a good one.

  22. HageLinCalPruBoylahan on

    Nice to see ya Momma and Linda!!!


  24. HageLinCalPruBoylahan on

    carp, this one has eu at the end… the feds closed down the one with tv at the end lol

  25. I strongly reccomend our boys listen to “Metallica- One” before the game….. I just did and I’m feeling like emilio estavez when he danced around the library in breakfast club… Prust sayin….

  26. Are there any streams of the game online so that I can watch it while I’m at work?

    Freaking government closing down all the streaming sites. That’s unconstitutional. It’s depriving me of the pursuit of happiness!

  27. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Craig – I think “you light up my life” sung by debi Boone should be blaring in the ranger room

  28. NYR_FAN,
    it would be hard for a ranger player to check Briere considering Briere is out of the lineup Indefinitely due to a concussion, LOL.
