About Author


  1. Deadline at 3pm today and I am up early blogging when I should be working.

    Anyhoo, the Isles helped us out. 1st place seems a lock. People are fretting over facing the Sabres. I don’t see how anyone can not be happy with the home ice throughout.

  2. Third!

    Good morning to all and Thanks to the fishsticks..

    The reason the Sabres worry me is that if Miller is on his game, he neutralizes the advantage in goal we have over most teams. Also, they seemed to give us more than we could handle that last game. Hopefully that was just a bad game by us???

    Two more points tonight please….

  3. "Fragile" Frankie Merman on

    I can’t figure out if it was the Isles that played well last night or the Pens who spit the bit. Either way I’ll take it.

  4. Good morning, boneheads!

    Frankie- MAF was not playing well, they are depleted on defense, and their offense doesn’t look unstoppable at all without Letang. Also, their coach seems to have his hands full with very lazy team backchecking at the moment.

  5. nyrmessier011 on

    Voted for mac truck, though I think cally or girardi will win it. Would be cool if mac and girardi split the award like was done in the 80s one year.

  6. Sioux-per-man on

    Top 10 !!!

    Magic number is down to 5. Time to get two big points tonight and reduce the number to three.

  7. I think every single player on our team wants two cups and will remain focused on playing better in the “next” game. We’ve seen their determination all season long and don’t have to look any further than the last game where they came back to win in a convincing manner.

    Wouldn’t it be fitting if two players shared the Steven McDonald Award tonight?

    I don’t fear any particular team come PO time! Any team we play will be a battle. I believe in this team and they believe in each other. These last five games against mostly worthy opponents will show their will and focus as they begin their approach to the road that leads to the gates of Lord Stanley’s estate.


  8. Pimp, you usually have the opposing goalie scoring the game winner. I think that’s more likely than Gomez getting a hat trick.

    Let’s Go Rangers! One step closer to #1 with two points tonight.

  9. Good morning all! Whoever wins I’m sure I’ll be happy, but I can’t even begin to guess the outcome. Can’t the whole team get it? :)

  10. Manny – Would you be proud if Officer McDonald’s family saw that? Read up on the award and Officer McDonald’s situation. Climbing off of soapbox…

  11. Stranger Nation on

    The only teams that don’t scare in the post season are the teams not in the playoffs

    No worries – the big blue wrecking crew will not be denied

    Byfiglein fish sticks save their best for last with beetle Bailey to the rescue

    LaTang may be Pitts second MVP after malkinstein

  12. Oh, and for the record, it’s highly enjoyable seeing the playoff seedings unfold without the anxiety associated with drifting between 7th and 10th in the standings… Even more enjoyable hearing fans in Washington grumble about their “luck” at having to face us.

    In the C I trust,


  13. IMHO, Girardi and Callahan deserve it equally. Callahan won it twice already, I think Girardi should get it.

  14. I don’t think I’ve ever cared about a pair of Fishsticks games! Things change I guess according to the importance of the games to NYR. I think on NYR off-nights, Cablevision should loan out our announcers. Those guys for Islanders suck.

  15. Hey thanks Dudley. I appreciate you changing my life, outlook and sense of humor by reprimanding me on a blog. The joke is on the Rangers. Pimp style. You really don’t want to start a whole thing about that dude. We try to keep politics off this blog.

  16. Thanks Manny –

    First laugh of the day!

    Manny March 30th, 2012 at 8:48 am
    Pimp – I bet even Officer Steven McDonald Scores on the Rangers tonight.

  17. I hate this, but Im going to have fish sticks for lunch and give thanks by not ordering one but 2 . Tonight minuteman Dan the Man should have his picture taken with NEW YORK’S FINEST . 50 ,yes FIFTY. Lets stay with J D and then pass him by. Oh Baby !!

  18. Stranger Nation on

    The great part of this team is there are many worthy candidates for this award. Girardi, the King, Capt Cally, Boyle

    it seems every goal the Rangers are scoring these days are playoff variety – in close, banging at rebounds – the dirty goals that you have to band in during the second season.

    impressed with Dubi heading to cage more – playing with Boyle is more his style with the cycling down low and pushing to crease for jam shots.

  19. Doodie Machetto on

    Hopefully Gomez doesn’t Gomez Lundqvist like he Gomezed Miller a couple of years ago.

  20. RE Stick slashing

    I recall many moons ago as a young rink rat at the old
    ( and now long gone) New Haven
    Aren* where the old New Haven Ramblers, principal farm club of Rangers, played and we on off days would go in to clean the ice and do some shinny works on the ice,playing keep away. I mentioned this to Pete McNab a few years ago, when his dad Max McNab played for the Indianapolis Capitols farm of Detroit, and had played the Ramblers the night before, while we rink rats were playing keep away he was tooling around with a puck and blasting it at an empty cage,
    and he got close to me and I lifted his stick and glommed on the puck. All of a sudden both arms went numb. he slashed me across the forearms and took the puck back, and just gave me a dirty look. Pete laughed his head off at this story, and said yeah, that sounds like Pop, you don’t take pucks away from him EVER. It is a very painful experience.

    * This area is now a parking lot on Grove St.

  21. I’m voting for Girardi.

    And I’m really hoping who ever wins this award, awkwardly tries to shake Steven McDonald’s hand, and then more awkwardly gives him a shoulder tap when he realizes Steven can’t shake hands.

    By the way, what’s our record when Steven McDonald says something arrogant? Last year was horrible. “We win, you lose”…..two hours later, we lose. LOL!

  22. Doodie Machetto on

    Orr, maybe he pulls a Dolan and predicts a Cup, and Torts runs out and grabs the microphone to say “easy, easy”

  23. I think it is a good day (with the Habs and Gomez coming in) to discuss Ryan McDonagh. His growth and improvement this year has been nothing short of astonishing. I also think we haven’t seen all he has to offer. I think there is tremendous offensive upside to his game. He has great wheels, is a great passer and has a very good wrist shot.

    It is amazing that a 22 year old kid has become the best defenseman on our team. It will be another 4-5 years before he hits his prime. I think we will be talking about him for the next 10 to 15 years as one of the top defenseman in the league.

    Props to Slats for a theft of monumental proportions…..


  24. Avery will win Steven McDonald Extra Effort! He LITERALLY went above and beyond the call of duty! Putting on nail polish really takes a lot outta you! :)

  25. “Hey thanks Dudley. I appreciate you changing my life, outlook and sense of humor by reprimanding me on a blog. The joke is on the Rangers. Pimp style. You really don’t want to start a whole thing about that dude. We try to keep politics off this blog.”


  26. Third!

    Good morning to all and Thanks to the fishsticks..

    The reason the Sabres worry me is that if Miller is on his game, he neutralizes the advantage in goal we have over most teams. Also, they seemed to give us more than we could handle that last game. Hopefully that was just a bad game by us???

    Two more points tonight please….

    Yes, it was a terrible game by the Rangers. They can definitely beta the Sabres in a 7-game series but it won’t come down to that just yet because frankly Buffalo is coming in 7th. We’ll be facing either Ottawa and the Caps and that makes me pretty optimistic. If we face Buffalo its because they’ve started sliding in which case I’ll take them too. I just want Philly and Pitt to have a good old fashioned war of attrition in round one.

  27. My wife is disabled and in a wheelchair from the result of an accident, so yes I look for people to be respectful and not make fun of disabled people.

  28. Tino – get over it. I wasn’t making fun of McDonald because he’s in a wheelchair. I was making fun of the Rangers who could probably let a guy in a wheelchair score on them because they are so bush-league.

    Acceptance is the first step to recovery. If you would like to make fun of me for my laundry list of heart surgeries and other implanted devices to stay alive feel free. I would always be happy to assist. Remember, humor is the essence of life.

  29. Manny – Just not funny and with Pimp already owning that corner of the superstitious market, does that make you the pimps bi…. nevermind.

    Regardless, the Extra Effort award is about celebrating certain qualities on our team and a certain individual whose commitment to the city resulted in paying a large price for what he believed in.

    I’d rather focus on the amount of damage Cindy’s Tears and Hatnells Hair Weave will do to one-another in round 1…

  30. Definitely think it should be Girardi or McD but I voted for Girardi. I don’t like to vote for rookies or second year players because I think some improvement and development is more likely and expected.

    When a guy who last year was 2nd piece of a top pair becomes one of the best D guys in the league in the prime of his career and makes you not even realize that the top guy is injured for three months, I think he deserves the award.

    Can’t wait for the inspirational words from Steven…always gives me goose bumps.

  31. No worries, I’m just sensitive because she goes thru a lot, and Office McDonald is far worse off than her. I’m glad he gets honored tonight.

    Anyway, let’s hope they win tonight and get one step closer to clinching 1st.


  32. I voted for Girardi. Not our best player by any means, but our most important in terms of contributions beyond the expected level. His filling Staal’s role and playing like a #1 shutdown d-man for the first half was massive in getting us the top seed.

  33. Thanks @CCCP@ I think this is the first time you have supported me, rather than insinuated that you would hunt me down and “of” me.

    I am very pleased about the emergence of this alliance!

  34. Manny- You can trace my posts back 5 years since I moved back home to NYC, does that make my sound advice any simpler to digest or should I break out a crayon?

    Not looking for a killer internet argument, just would prefer to think our fans are smarter and more passionate than pre-teens that poke fun at the expense of someone the entire Rangers Organization chooses to celebrate.

  35. Dudley – you just won’t really convince me that I said anything about about Stevie McD. Because I didn’t.

    Anyways. I am done with this argument. Carp doesn’t need this junk clogging his blog and stopping good, quality g(j)ibberish.

  36. Manny

    me supporting you there does not mean i don’t still want to hurt you! i kid i kid! we’re cool…

    for now. :P

  37. Sorry about your wife, TINO….

    C’mon, folks, I doubt Manny had any intentions to offend Steven McDonald, or what he did, and what he means for this city….It didn’t come out right ( internet is a funny thing), and just took a wrong turn. Let’s leave it behind us.

  38. Wicky©No pears, No apples, Where's my pineapple?! on

    UMMMM, where the hell am I??

    This place seems different…

    oh well, i’ll give it a shot

    Morning ILB and all!!

    So I voted for avery, he made that extra effort doing all of that extra traveling by bus and then back and forth to the rangers!

  39. Wicky©No pears, No apples, Where's my pineapple?! on

    maybe it is better when the rangers lose, people take their frustrations out on the team not others here!

  40. Wicky©No pears, No apples, Where's my pineapple?! on

    course, I should have voted for cally and all of his excellent “BLOGGING”…LOL

  41. Manny – At least we can agree, the Rangers are better than the flyers?

    I’m sure carps not too stressed that our combined whit

  42. Wicky©No pears, No apples, Where's my pineapple?! on

    Not only is he a great shot “blogger”, he is TGE shot “BLOGGER”….(at any moment I expect a knock at my door followed by a one finger Ukrainian wave)

  43. Doodie Machetto on

    Hey Tino, I think it’s hilarious. So you are wrong. It was VERY funny.

    Miami, that may be the best joke you’ve made all season.

  44. Wicky©No pears, No apples, Where's my pineapple?! on

    wait, what is everyone upset about??

    I think manny is one of the funniest (looking) human beings out there!!

  45. Tiki XLII XLVI on

    Mama is busy playing her magic puzzles app on ipad, so her response might take awhile lol

  50. No! Don’t be sorry. Who cares about a heart condition. It makes me who I am and therefore it’s a good thing.

    Who’s Tebow!?

  51. Tiki, you will have to tell me more about that Tebow character tomorrow, his name has been used way too often on the blog….I’m sure the ladies will be thrilled. It’s OK, they can have their sangria. Well, at least one of them can :-)

  52. Wicky©No pears, No apples, Where's my pineapple?! on

    tebow isn’t worth burning brain cells over (no offence tiki)

  53. Sally!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  54. Tiki XLII XLVI on

    True, Manny. But i hope youre healthy despite it!

    Tebow is a below average nfl quarterback, a good football player, a great leader, and an even better human being!!!!!! he dedicates a lot of time to helping others and teaching others his religious beliefs, even prisoner inmates.

  55. Hambone!

    Tiki, you would know better than I … is Tebow married? I think he is … just because people are suggesting he will supplant Sanchez as the most eligible bachelor on the Jets.

  56. Tiki XLII XLVI on

    wicky, thats it. when i meet u, im gonna cut ur bickels off!!!!!!! thats a promise!!!

  57. Tiki XLII XLVI on

    so BFF, what r u gonna do about Mama? she spends time she used to spend here obsessively playing magic puzzles. i think an email is in order!!!

  58. Wicky, I am saving up every Sunday paper for the month of April for you. Go back to tearing each other up and leave me alone !!!

  59. Puzzles are peaceful and always end satisfyingly…..unlike some of the discussions here :)

  60. Careful how, ilb? I have Transposition of the Great Vessels, Type D. Two Mustard Procedures and an Enpulse DR Dual Chamber Pacemaker going strong.

  61. Tiki XLII XLVI on

    i cant believe how time flies… in less than 80 days, we will be Stanley Cup Champions!!! Has that processes w any of unyet?

  62. Doodie Machetto on

    “Puzzles are peaceful and always end satisfyingly”

    Unless you put it all together and discover that a piece is missing.

  63. Did you know Dr. Mustard was Canadian, Manny? Now we all know why you like hockey. It’s “in your heart” :-)

    You told me about the Transposition, btw…

  64. Speaking of, Doodie: Here is The Onion’s Headline for sports:

    “After one week as New York Jet Tim Tebow Gay, Homeless Crack Addict”

  65. Oh. Sorry, ilb! I tend to forget and get too public with this info!

    Now I know what that hockey-stick-like stitching on my chest is from! Silly Dr. Mustard

  66. Tiki, if Torts reads the blog, and sees your predictions, I’m afraid whatever is left will certainly be removed. *NO ANESTHESIA*

  67. Tiki XLII XLVI on

    Its not a prediction. I dont do predictions. Its just what I know in my heart to be true!!!

  68. Manny, I bookmarked it a million years ago. I remember when it happened I was laughing so hard I couldn’t breathe…

  69. Play nice!
    Off Broadway play. Acting personalities:
    Manny =prolific, talented, slightly heart injured Joker.

    Wholly speedy video find sallycrepes

  72. huge 2 games from the Islanders. A Rangers win tonight essentially gives us the #1 seed…

    Plus, i still think Washington steals the division from Florida which would make an easy series…

  75. Jesus Christ, Tino quit the whining. Manny, no need to even attempt to apologize…. having said that, can we get a “Thanks for Ryan” chant going at MS

  76. TINO and Dudley “shadow personalities” I didn’t characterize, because first, not sure how to spell their names and second, I’m afraid of retribution, if somehow, unintentionally and unknowingly brake their fragile sensitivity, which I have full respect to.
    Seriously, I’m not a judge here because personally, harden by already long life, I take offence only when I see direct *intention* to insult.

  77. oh god Dubinsky and Steven McDonald was so awkward…. i liked how the crowd booed James Dolan in the speech :)

  78. Playoffs start April 11th. But I’m assuming not every team plays on the first day. Am I right ?
    Is there a chance the Rangers start on Thursday the 12th ?

  83. Mr. Mustard, formerly Colonel Mustard, was dishonorably discharged from his rank of Colornel for war-profiteering (selling crucial parts of American military aviation systems to the enemy or elsewhere on the black market).

    ndur should have won at least 2 norris trophies…one of the greatest Dmen to wear the broadway blues

  85. Who is Ruman? Except one, who was Companion of the Prophet Muhammad, I don’t know any. Roman, maybe?

  86. iWicky "If you don't stop flapping your jaws, I'm going to knock you out on national tv" on

    I referenced him in the last game thread…along with Chris Tamer

  87. I told you what he does…above Carp. He was a war-profiteer. He was Col. now he’s just Mr. Mustard the disgraced army man.

    Mean Mister Mustard sleeps in the park
    Shaves in the dark trying to save paper
    Sleeps in a hole in the road
    Saving up to buy some clothes
    Keeps a ten-bob note up his nose
    Such a mean old man
    Such a mean old man

    His sister Pam works in a shop
    She never stops, she’s a go-getter
    Takes him out to look at the queen
    Only place that he’s ever been
    Always shouts out something obscene
    Such a dirty old man
    Dirty old man
