It’s Go Time!

Rangers-Senators Game 1.

Here we go.

The Rangers go with the same lineup they’ve been using, which means Chris Kreider is prucha’d for the first time in his career, along with John Scott and Jeff Woywitka.

Henrik Lundqvist in goal (duh) against Craig Anderson. Ottawa’s Chris Neil is expected to return from an undisclosed injury.

The good news: Josh Thomson, 26, is here with me. We’re both going to be tweeting our little piggies off  ——–>

    Carp
    I saw a clip of the lockerroom on the pregame and and the locker to cally’s left had a sweater with a 7 on it (could have been dubi or mcdonut obviously) but if it was rupp that would make a lot of sense too IMHO!

  15. Rhode Island Ranger on

    Carp:

    Your relentless repetition has convinced me: NHL teams NEVER develop momentum in a playoff series. And any (or every) player and coach that claims they do is lying or deluded.

  16. Please, no more 2 goals against in a first 5 minutes on home ice. I’m begging you, not gonna survive it … Am I asking too much?

  17. Are we talking “momentum” again? It’s been a while…..I guess it’s playoffs

  18. I think Richards is going to chuck so much wood there’s going to be saw dust all over the ice!

    Wooooooooo Hooooooo!

  19. Rhode Island Ranger on

    LW:

    The players have an awful lot to do with it, but I fear you might be right.

  20. Melrose picked the Rangers cause he’s loves Torts press conferences.

    LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!

  32. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    Carp, i have a special pic to send you.. it may not be until tomorrow though lol

  33. Really? Get rid of the stupid player twitter garbage….DG has enough to worry about!

  34. I don’t get why trips always occur behind the net. You should know if the player’s gone or not!

  35. Boyle with his kind of not really beard, more of a goatee thingy is, um…..really , um, nice!

  36. Why do players always take slap shots when they’re in a similar situation to Prust? I feel like it gives the defender more time to position his stick.

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

    ALRIGHT GUYS !!! WE blocked shot all year long and we HIT , we HIT , we HIT EVERY MUTHA WE SAW!!!! Lets hit these guys and pound ‘em our way !!!

  52. iWicky "Rupp yours" on

    Sam STFU about baseball!!!!

    Loved joe telling him just not thinking about baseball right now

  53. Thats a penalty!!!!!!!!!!! They took down Richards from behind after he lost the puck. Come on!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We’re the best team in the god damn league!! Give us some fairness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  54. Joekuh - playoffs.........you wanna tallk PLAYOFFS???? on

    good job not giving up a end of period goal. gotta start the 2nd just like we started the 1st.

  55. Well, they look like they are ready…Torts was right after all. I think that was his *STRATEGY*

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

    Thats our boys!!! We are playing a perty good Ottawa team , Hank is saving shot after shot and we are playing like we usually do…looks like were playing for something don’t it?

    LOVE IT!!!

    CALLY !!! CALLY!!! We got Cally this playoffs!!!! Last year we did ok…BUT CALLY IS BACK!!!!

  57. Hi Carp!
    Just letting you know.. there will be Norwegian chocolate as a prize in the beard contest! ;)

    Hi mama! Miss you! Wish I was there! Tell Tony I’ll see him in June!!!

  58. iWicky "Rupp yours" on

    Girardi let up on Philips and he shouldn’t have, loved the scrums by our boys on the pk.

    Bitz got 2 games and weber got zippo?? Are you fugging kidding me?!

    Cally=captain
    Jagr=joke of a captain

  59. Yeah!!!/Uh-Oh on

    Especially early, they cleared the zone much more crisply
    than they had been the last coupla months.
    Hank looks nothing like December/January Hank.
    Fightin’ it a little bit…

  60. ThisYearsModel on

    Someone needs to plant Neil before he hurts somebody. Also, the ref supervisor needs to introduce the referees to holding calls. The Sens are holding us all over the rink.

  61. Neil has gotten away with multiple trips and what looked a board on Anisimov. Got no problem with putting the whistles away if it means the Rangers get the same latitude

  62. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    no worries bud! i gotta look into this slingbox thing, wonder if my parents in NY would leave an extra tv on for me during hockey season set to MSG LOL

  63. Pretty solid period. They need to relax a bit in their own zone.. look a little nervous.

  64. We need to stay awake in our zone and keep up the pressure. Love the playoffs but my stomach is in knots. These games bring out the IBS in me.

  65. WOW!!! This must be a great game to watch for a non fan. Lots of action on both sides of the ice. Keep up the pressure boyz!!! LETS GO RANGERS!!!

  66. Carp, seriously I don’t know how you do what you do…..I’m watching, blogging here, texting and e-mailing…..my head is about to spin off my neck…..if I also had to write about this game I’d be fired or jump off a bridge..

  67. HENRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GET UP CROWD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  68. They look shaky in their zone. Gahhhhhh!

    I think they’ve looked good in the other zones though.

  69. Stranger Nation on

    Good TO Tortles. Team is not playing smart, having a lot of trouble clearing zone.

  70. LMAO Carp!!!!! No, they surely are not……and you’re not even on a ledge, much less a bridge…:)

  71. Yeah!!!/Uh-Oh on

    halfway thru 2nd, Hank looks a little more steady,
    and he sure needed to be….

  72. ThisYearsModel on

    Time to get it in gear and play in their end. They have dominated this game since the second half of the first period.

  73. Good timeout!!!!

    We got our legs back!!

    We’re firing!!!!!!!!!!!

    Its only a matter of time before a Rangers bullseye!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  74. Yeah I agree Lundqvist is sharper now. Rest of the team had been poor up until that shift

  75. Lots of hartnells being tossed around where I am…and I have contributed none, I swear!

  76. Thats not a penatly!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    BULLSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    3rd penalty on us, only 1 on them. I guess we’re the 8 seed.

  77. Good job fans. Chant AAsens!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thats a penalty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Theyre chgeatying us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  78. Whether or not that should have been icing, they need to STOP chucking the puck down the ice. It’s ridiculous.

  79. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  80. YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  81. Stranger Nation on

    I guess the Norris Trophy is an offensive award after watching Karlson D on Gabby’s goal.

  82. Yeah!!!/Uh-Oh on

    I rarely get into energetic criticism of the refs –
    but that last four minutes before Gabby’s GREAT
    goal was awesomely inept…

  83. YEAH!~!~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11]
    PENALTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    COME ON GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    FINISH!!!!!!!!!!!!! FINISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  84. Rangers West on

    If anybody knows of a free online site to stream the game that would be great. All I have is NHL center ice. All the games will be blocked out.

    RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANGERS!!!!!!

    Lets go gog go gog go go gogogo!!!

    LETS GO RANGERS!!!!

    LETS GO RANGERS!!!

    LETS GO RANGERSS!!!

  88. How fitting was it to have RANGE AND R AND S follow the USA chant. Stupidity on top of stupidity.

    We’re getting this to 1,000 comments, right? At 520+ right now.

  89. Rangers were being handled from the latter stages of the first all the way up until Tortorella called that time out. And thanks to that move, Rangers will play Saturday night up 1-0.

    Give Tortorella the Broadway hat tonight

  90. What a lucky team. These no-talent clowns should be DOWN 3-0. I can’t believe how fortunate we are that Anderson opened up his legs and that that amateur-hour, two-bit player “Gaborik” actually shot the puck. I still say that we should trade him for a bag of pucks.

    If we don’t play THE KREIDER, we are screwed.

  91. Good couple of days to be in STL. Blues game 1 at Scottrade tonite, Cards home opener is tomorrow.

  92. Miami, it doesn’t look like promised “PO special”. C’mon, you can do better…

  93. Rangers Report ? @rangersreport
    Westlake QB John D’Onofrio will play football at Ithaca College.

    Huh?

  94. It’s playoffs, Lloyd. You don’t expect Ottawa, with all their fire power, to be quiet all game. Of course they pressured. The bottom line, the Rangers didn’t give up much, and Hank was solid. That’s the way it goes, you pressure and can’t score, it’ll go back in your net. Gotta love the timeout, though. He was calming them down, essentially, probably reminding what kept them all year long. Back to business.

  95. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    gee i wonder why the nydailynews.com and nypost.com are not running a
    breaking news scroll with the score of the game

  96. Hey,Miami, forget about south of the boarder’s teams, go north, to Eskimo lacrosse team for comparison. Like, can’t score on mink coat for Eskimo girl…, or something.

  97. Of course I can do better.

    And anyone can do better than this mockery of a “team” you guys follow so passionately. Just watch these county-fair carnies pull of the “impossible” and give up 4 goals in the next 20 minutes to deflate all your hopes and dreams.

    Sure, you may read my posts and say “this guy is off his rocker”. Even if I was ON my rocker, I’d play better than these fools. Lundqvist has a shutout merely a courtesy of the Senators either missing the net or shooting right at his 1-pack. The minute those fools figure out that they should shoot glove or stick side or at the gaping five-hole, this series is 4-and-done.

    Enjoy the third period collapse.

  98. WHy are these fools doing Potvin sucks chants??? Inspire your team you idiots. CHeer, make noise, you fools!!!!

  99. Meanwhile, already the whole flock of the Grey Gooses flying from my Kramer’s coffee table towards my mouth with every goal, PP and PK. So far, so good and ice is excellent…and future is bright!

  100. YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    RICHARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    FINISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    BOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    HAGELIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    You want3ed to know how theyd come out, ILBZO?!?!?! YOU GOT YOUR ANSWER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LOUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    AND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    CLEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  101. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    BPlus!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pope!!!!!!!!!!!!! Chompers!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Chicklet!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!

  102. Am I totally crazy, or did they add a guitar solo to the end of the goal song this season?

  103. As a neutral observer, I don’t really see the big deal with the U-S-A chant.

    OK, there’ll be some idiots who do it because they really think it’s some sign of superiority over Canadians, but it’s mostly just a non-serious US team versus Canadian team thing, right? Doesn’t mean people don’t know the Rangers have non-American players.

  104. That’s the key to this series. Pound their defense. Gonchar got exposed, Filigno couldn’t hold on to the puck. 4-0. Kuba and Gonchar will be their targets.

  105. They’re playing a perfect game so far… All the talk from the experts was how inexperienced this team is for the play offs… So far proven wrong.

  106. Stranger Nation on

    Hags may outweigh Karlsson – man he is good though with the puck. In his own zone, eh, not so much

  107. People tried to vote Jessica off on Idol! America is full of idiots. But we already knew this. Video at 11.

    Now back to the Rangers!

  108. Theyve got no room to breathe. They cant get through the neutral zone!!! Theyre suffocated!!!

  109. Their defense hasn’t done anything spectacular, but it’s been very steady. MDZ looks well, Stralman- ditto. And Bickel, who looked a bit shaky at the beginning, has settled nicely. Good signs.

  110. AA is very noticeable on ice at this game – good sign. He will score rather sooner than later, I’m sure. Hope, when Senators will realize they don’t have a good goalie and vulnerable D (even with so offensive minded Carlson and old fart Gonchar)it will be too late…

  111. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    did that stat just say thomas has 7 saves at the end of the 2nd… lmfao

  112. Dumb Dubi was so dumb that he decided to give the puck away at the blue line, which led to a goal.

  113. Is it me or does the MSG broadcast make the Garden sound quiet compared to the NBC broadcasts last night

  114. Maybe I was too greedy thinking shutout for Hank…gott burn his aasen that it was a Swede that scored on him.

  115. Can’t overstate how key that time out was. Rangers were totally on their heels with a 1 goal. Immediately after the time out, the Rangers arguably had their two best shifts of the game. Shortly after that, Gaborik scored that back breaker.

  116. Guys, its about the win. Get the W. All that matters. Rather Sens get a goal in this game and be shutout by Henrik next game. The goal should make Henrik angry.

  117. I know, I know.

    ORR, been meaning to tell you that your linked website is f’in awesome!!!!!!!!!!!

  118. For me, it was the time out that was key…let me say that again here in a little bit

  119. Does anyone still want to play against Maltby? He is shutting down Boston at the moment.

  120. ThisYearsModel on

    Good effort. Run this puppy out and laugh at Chris Neil when he comes out of the box.

  121. Agree, it turned into a turning point. But it wasn’t strategic. It was a no-brainer because the guys on the ice were gassed and had iced the puck.

    And they got pinned another time after that timeout, and just before Gaborik lugged it out to start the 2-0 goal.

  122. iDoodie machetto on

    CarP, I’m in the section right in front of the press box. I’m also drunk, and very, very wrong about the outcome of this game.

  123. iWicky "Rupp yours" on

    Speaking of alfredsson, anyone else remember when Schneider bloodied him in a fight when he was with the rangers?

  124. Yup – totally agree. I’d be louder than half the crowd myself with a sixer in me (trust me, my voice carries and my whistle is loud and shrill).

    That’s the most disappointing part of the game….the crowd should make me jealous I’m not there.

    Rather, it’s making me glad I don’t have to take the train back to Stamford!

  125. N.CountryNYRFan on

    C’mon guys don’t give them any confidence.

    Let’s Go Finish Strong!!!!!

  126. I do like that ending. A little reminder what may happen if they let the pedal off the floor

  127. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    SMELLS LIKE……………..

    VICTORY!@

  128. Good work boys. Just tighten it up in the 3rd period next game and we’ll be super-fine….

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

    GOOD GAME , Greaaaaat show by our guys!!!

    RANGERS WIN!! RANGERS win!!! RANGERS WIN!!!

    ok ok , now on to game two… Might have to put in Biron to rest Hank a bit. HAHAHAHAHA!!!

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

    Good effort all around. Showed why we were in first all year long. Rangers win and its no fluke.

  131. Night guys! Im dead tired. We needed a big win, and it took a lot out of me. See youse tomorrow! 1 down…

  132. can you imagine the panic in Boston if the Bruins get shutout by a noname goalie? can you imagine the hysteria here?

  133. N.CountryNYRFan on

    this was a good win, first game jitters are gone now and Anderson is beatable on Garden ice. I thought Cally was gonna knock Gilroy into the 10th row of seats with that hit.

  134. I don’t care about shutout in a PO, but too bad this 2 goals gives Sens feeling they can score (and rather quickly) on Hank and Rangers.

  135. Yeah Lin. Just enough unless you want to bake me one more for the parade through the Canyon of Heros. :)

  136. sorry, guys. those two late goals mean absolute nothing, either in this game or for Saturday night.

    as I said a week ago, Rangers will win this series easily.

  137. Carp, are you surprised at the outcome? i.e. sounded like you thought the Rangers may lose the 1st one

  138. That could potentially be the best or worst thing to happen to the Rangers in this series, ORR.

  139. I love it when he does that, Mickey! So funny! I always laugh every time I hear that happen to someone. That’s what I miss most aboot High School. I was surrounded by it!

    That never happened to me though. How does it still happen to Emrick? Weird.

  140. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    lmao Mickey!!

    Did you hear Sam when Richards scored!? it sounded like he was wobbling on a tight rope!

  141. the supposed content/language requirements here are so laughably arbitrary I’d almost think Gary Bettman signed off on them

  142. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    bwahahahah ORR!!!

    by the way, have you tried any of the Ben & Jerry’s frozen greek yogurts yet?

  143. I hope Craps win tonight, just to get into Bruins heads.

    Can you imagine if Pens lose, Bruins lose and NJD lose? Not that the Rangers could coast into the Stanley Cup Finals but would make life alot easier for them and for us.

  144. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    gotta love Torts!

    Orr, i recommend the raspberry, it was really good

    Kreider gets in next week…

    too bad Greek Orthodox Easter will have taken place before his debut

  145. Jobi-Wan Kenobi on

    Did Torts just say Kreider will get ice time? I heard him say they were gonna get someone on the ice but couldn’t hear e question so I don’t know who he was talking about

  146. JimboWoodside on

    Well, he stopped everything else that was thrown at him, but that wasn’t a very good goal he gave up.

  147. How do the rangers think they’ll win this series if they give up two goals in the third. Ottawa has this one in the bag. Here’s to next season.

  148. So far so good. Really liked Gaborik’s game. He’s played a great all around game. Game two Saturday. Let’s keep rolling!

  149. was on my way back from MSG so didn’t see press conference. what was Tortorella bitching about?

  150. if i hears him right he said that the sens rolled 4 lines, he didnt and said im not going to discuss why. mitchell had 5 mins of ice. rupp had 4.

  151. was a bit surprised by that. don’t recall seeing Bickel much after that asinine penalty and even Prust only played handful of minutes. that said, I don’t think there’s much value in playing Mike Rupp under optimum circumstances and considering he had about 12 minutes worth of penalties there wasn’t really any room for him.

  152. I think those 12 minutes worth of penalties were pretty valuable, Lloyd. He kept Neil off the ice, a trade I’d take any day.

  153. Rhode Island Ranger on

    Torts used the forbidden m-word (shhh… “momentum”).

    What next? UFOs, chupacabras, Mitchell goals?

  154. Stranger Nation on

    4 mins too many for Rupp, Mitchell was no where

    Put the ‘second coming’ in the flipping next game so he can get his mojo going!

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

    WAY TO GO BOYS!!!!!

    RANGERS WON RANGERS WON RANGERS WON!!!

  156. like, if you’re only going to play Mitchell 4:59 you might as well use Krieder, but I somehow doubt Tortorella’s going to change anything after tonight’s performance.

  157. i actually didnt see Mitchell on the ice at all today. Rupp was noticeable… Mitchell keeps this up and Kreider WILL see ice time.

  158. iWicky "Rupp yours" on

    I thought torts ice time and he will play comments were in response to a question about brich

    What an awesome game! I was up in 306 — did anyone hear the “SIT DOWN YELLOW!” chant? OMG THAT WAS HILARIOUS. I’m still kind of hurting from laughing so hard!

    TONY FROM AZ if you read this, please do you have an email address you could post on here so I can contact you for those pics you took? That would be awesome. If not, I will make some kind of disposable email addy for myself at some point soon… I will try to check back here when I can, or just continuously hound you for the shots. Nice to put the face with the name, btw!

    I’ve been really busy with work, which is not such a bad thing, AND I was lucky enough to be able to go to the game tonight. What a great time!

    I wish I could have gone out after the game, but I have been burning the candle at both ends and need to finish the week strong. I should be rested by Saturday night’s game :D although I am not going to that one :(

    Latona, thanks buddy, I hadn’t been to a game in soooooooo long… really, in a really really really long time. Oh man, I had such a blast. I need to advance my career so I can afford season tickets, lol. That will be the driving force behind my motivation lol.

    Ok, off to bed :/

    G’night!

  162. There are people on the nhl.com site talking about Carkner changing the series for the Sens. Is Crack making a comeback?

  163. Carkner may be a bad mamber-jamber but does anybody believe he’ll intimidate this team?
