It’s Go Time!


Rangers-Senators Game 7.

Don’t really have much more to say. Win and play Washington. Lose and it’s over.

Brian Boyle (concussion) remains out; Ryan Callahan (finger) will play. Ottawa’s Zenon Konopka and Matt Carkner are questionable, but I would guess they’ll play.


Rangers’ all-time Game 7s (home teams have won all eight):

1939 — at Boston 2, Rangers 1 (OT).
1950 — at Detroit 4, Rangers 3 (2OT).
1971 — at Chicago 4, Rangers 2.
1974 — at Philadelphia 4, Rangers 3.
1992 — at Rangers 8, Devils 4.
1994 — at Rangers 2, Devils 1 (2OT).
1994 — at Rangers 3, Vancouver 2.
2009 — at Washington 2, Rangers 1.

Since the lockout, home teams are 12-12 in Game 7s. This year, 0-1, with Boston’s home loss to Washington in OT Wednesday.

  9. Just saw the Captain, ilb, during warmups.

    FYI, Konopka was out there, Carkner was not. Looks like a Matt Gilroy night.

    TONY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HARDCORE PANTLESS WONDER!!!!!!!!

  11. LIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Agree Lyova, me too. Have a good gut’s feeling about this game. But God forbid…I’ll sink myself in a bathtub of Grey Goose.

  14. Advil, water and chips and dip (cause I’m starving and have to eat everything in the house)- let’s do this!

    Also, I have an apartment in my new hometown, which just happens to be the same hometown as Cally :)

  15. boneheads- completely trapped in london rather than home for work. Is the MSG broadcast streaming ANYWHERE online?

  16. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MICKEY!! you’ll be there in time for the baby shower lol

  17. fourscoreandsevenfaceoffsago on

    From the chat:

    Henrik hasn’t had a team good enough to win in prior playoffs – but he’s had
    a team playin’ well enough to win a few rounds. Buffalo PARTLY on him; up 3-1
    on Caps PARTLY on him. He was not at his best….
    It is to laugh: “Brian Leetch was not exactly Larry R. early in his career.”
    Brian was mostly a Gandhi-guy, serene witness to the other guys’ game-winning goals early on.
    Caught you from Milwaukeee some nights with Joe B in the late, late hours, WFAN.
    You don’t ALWAYS put me to sleep. Sometimes you help my blood boil:-).
    Agree this CAN be a great building block of a season. Don’t share the general confidence
    that it WILL be. Ranger fans tend to make comparisons with FORMER Glen. Realistic Cup comps
    have to be made with a half-dozen or more wily front offices, mostly with proven track records,
    around the league. If they get goaltending, Philly’s gonna be some test the next few years.
    Knew you couldn’t go a round without a bow to the Empire State’s hues…
    Hoping great game, impartial refs, impartial announcing.
    Hoping Derek has the same oompph as the last few nights. Agree Karl has multiple good effects
    on Ranger play, and Capt Daniel comin’ back MAY not have been entirely good for Sens.

  18. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    DJ, you can always try first row sports dot eu.. but it will all probably be versus

  19. Oh, Tony is watching? YAAAAY TONY!!!

    LOL. Linda, I’ll be sure to bring a present with me

  20. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    sick of hearing the verbal diarrhea of these 3! DROP THE PUCK ALREADY DAMNIT!!!!!!!!!

  21. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    lol Mickey, bring lil baby Cally gloves with extra padding and lil baby shoes with reinforced ankle protection lol

  22. Tonight, we take whats ours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. fourscoreandsevenfaceoffsago on

    The Norris-worthy work Dan G did earlier, when
    Marc was out, set a really high bar for him. That level was SO
    good, his present work kinda looks ordinary by comparison.
    Looking forward to next year, when he might get to play saner
    minutes all season long.

  24. Blogmama Go Tony!!!! on

    Good evening all!!!!!!!!! LET’S DO THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WIN!!!!!!!!!!! LGR!!!!!!!!

  25. My final prediction of the year: Senators 9-0, Chris Neal hat trick.

    Clowns are done for the year.

  26. Come on EDDIE!!!! Believe it, and it will happen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Aaaah! Beautiful Ranger Blue – there’s no finer color in the entire spectrum!!!

  28. im a nervous nelly. lets win boys! i hope we score one quickly. my stomachs in nots and feels like an overstuffed vacuum cleaner bag and an about to explode bratwurst

  29. I can’t see any coverage yet and the game hasn’t started, but I think the players look scared and Tortorella is coaching scared.


  31. The CBC footage just showed renowned hockey fan Mike Francesa behind their reporter, walking somewhere from his front row seats, which will please many people on here.

  32. for anyone who can’t watch the game, i realized I have my old slingbox which I no longer use so I changed the password and anyone can watch. Its not HD, it might be slow, but it works on my laptop right now and its better than nothing

    oleosmirf at aol dot com is the email and the password is jackwagon

    Game seven ….BEUTY!!!!

  34. I sold my tickets to tonight’s game for two reasons:

    1. My heart couldn’t handle it
    2. I made about a $600 profit

  35. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    oleo………… are Gods gift to boneheads far and wide!!!!!!!!!!!

  36. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    i dont think i’m getting our apartment deposit back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. Olga Folkyerself on

    First goal is important. No one that has scored the first goal has ever been shut out in a game 7.

  38. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    I’ve got Kenny & Dave on the radio – they were good luck for us last game!

  39. SOOO CLOSE!! GOtta hit that open net DAMNIT!

    These idiots on NBC are saying that the message is sent that its ok to contact the goalie. HELLO! Its been sent every game for the past 100 years that you can contaqct a Rangers goalie. We’re only now responding.

  40. Boys look good, they gotta start finishing. And not let Ott use the rangers’ shot blocking to their advantage.

  41. I like what McDonagh did at the end to Michalek. Rangers need to do more of that.

  42. LOL Tiki . . .Nothing to complain about there. . Anderson was out of the net and Prust played the puck . . . if he had just gone for the hit that would be more annoying but he was playing the puck

  43. i would think a vet like girardi wouldve been calm enough to score there. maybe a nervous rookie misses that but damn, oh well, what would wedo with an easy oppurtunity? we gota do it the hard way

  44. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    a lot of experience with the officials tonight, doesnt necessarily mean GOOD

  45. What is it about Konepka that he is winning 69% of the time . .. that is unheard of as far as I know . . . .

  46. This fool Doc Emrick giving a spongebath to Neil. You both have the same amount of integrity.

  47. I tend to think Konopka’s stats are a bit inflated by the simple fact that he’s not going up against guys who are particularly good on faceoffs.

  48. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    i hope someone does NOT have to lose a limb to get a legitimate penalty called tonight

  49. iDoodie machetto: get well Tony on

    Lundqvist is fighting the puck a lot tonight. Doesn’t look good.

  50. During the regular season Richards and Dubinsky had was 51%, Anisimov 46% and Stepan 44%

    Konopka was at 58% so yeah he was better but to go up 10+ % points . . . And Richards is down by 5 . . crazy.


  52. iDoodie machetto: get well Tony on

    This is some sloppy aasen hockey. Torts is going to lose his byfuglien mind.

  53. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    That was a post, wasn’t it, ORR? Anderson didn’t see the shot at all….

  54. im watching on an online stream… game is insane so far!! on the edge of my seat! wish I was home watching on the 50″

  55. Girardi-please get a few buckets of pucks this off season and practice lifting the puck, and also putting your shots on net-
    a concerned Ranger fan

  56. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Does Cally look OK to you, Carp? He made a real weird play behind the Sens net, flipping the puck off of Anderson kinda weakly…

  57. frazzlerazzledazzle on

    does anybody have a link for a live stream??? i’m having a fit listening to the radio. i might just die if i cant see the game. some please help me!!

  58. iDoodie machetto: get well Tony on

    Notice the exaggerated waives to the bench when changing? Seems like am adjustment to help avoid too many men penalties

  59. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    i have the NBC guys, it was TPCH who said that! Freakin ValeDICtorian of ASSHAT University!

  60. iDoodie machetto: get well Tony on

    Carp, you really don’t think he’s fighting it? Hasn’t caught a puck all night

  61. Off to my pal’s house. Hopefully I’ll be back in a few hours to celebrate!

    *LETS GO RANGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*

  62. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    End of that period did not look good at all! Dave said that the Rangers were all totally gassed for the last 45 seconds..

  63. They cannot have those extended periods with the Sens dominating in the Ranger zone, as if they are on the PP. That ends in goals or penalties a lot of the time.

  64. These linesmen are taking control of the game away from the players. Stop chasing the centremen; drop the darn puck.

  65. Rangers kind of lost the plot late in the period. I don’t even remember the last shot they had.

    On the plus side, it’s still scoreless.

  66. we gotta bury some chances now. the sens owned the 2nd half of the period. gaborik, u need to earn your money

  67. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    >>>“callahan learned a lot about winning from chris drury

    That might be the most ridiculous thing that Joe has ever said…

  68. actual penalties Senatores 3 Rangers 0
    called penalties Senatores 0 Rangers 1

    illegal centerman positioning on faceoffs Senatores EVERY SINGLE ONE
    Centerman chased from faceoff circle Senatores 1? Rangers 2?

  69. What’s the line on Doodie giving up/surrendering/quitting before the
    third period starts?

  70. Czechthemout!!! on

    Good period accept for the final minute. Everyone came to play tonight. So far thy all look good even the useless twins.

    Gabby needs to bury those two chances! That’s what they pay him for .

  71. Blogmama Go Tony!!!! on

    In an interview todays, Feds said his advice for game 7s is to leave nothing in the tank, leave it all on the ice…, the team is taking that to heart apparently, and now can breathe a bit.

    Cripes, some of you would yelp if they weren’t gassed enough…..

  72. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    >>>JIMBO, i did NOT hear that from Joe

    OK, Lin – I’ve got the radio feed on here, so I did not hear it myself.

  73. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on


    my daughter wore her Ovie t shirt to work today.. poured sparkling cider in her mini Stanley Cup, and offered the sore loser Bruins fans a drink, said NOT THIS YEAR, and drank it lol. She’s not right in the head lol

  74. >>Centerman chased from faceoff circle Senatores 1? Rangers 2?

    There were more Rangers chased than that.

  75. iDoodie machetto: get well Tony on

    Knuble had incidental contact, but Thomas had an opportunity to make a save.

  76. john scott couldve scored that open net. in all fairness, maybe girardi was caught off guard. it happened kinda fast so maybe whe he got the puck he didnt notice that andersen was still behind the net. it was such a terrible decision to lay there too. what the byfug was he thinking?

  77. Stranger Nation on

    Bickel with a good shot, too bad Danny G couldn’t bury his. Made up for it with hit on Karlsson – could have knocked him into next season if he had the malice of Neil

  78. they played so well until that penalty and then they put Callahan with Richards and they predictably got stuck in the zone for the next 2 minutes

  79. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    she handed out pics to eveyrone of the Caps celebrating and wrote “HAVE A NICE DAY Love Kristin” on them.

  80. doodie:

    nah, not even the contact. just that he ends up between Thomas’ legs. that’s supposed to be an interference penalty.

  81. Stranger Nation on

    Neil is really a wuss when he sees you coming at him. If your head is down he’s real tough guy.

  82. Let’s go boys!!!! Bring the energy and the pain like in the first half of the last period.!!!

  83. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Holy Cow! The radio feed got about 30 seconds behind the TV feed starting the period! WTB!?

  84. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    New ruling from Toronto, Mickey – only Ranger wingers and d-men are allowed to take faceoffs in this game.

  85. Tpch? Isn’t that an active ingredient in weed? I only know that from reading……

  86. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on


  87. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on


  88. YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




  89. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on


  90. THATS A PEWNAELTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    COME ONE~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  91. textbook trip

    officials are off doing something more important that watch the game, evidently

  92. same line that was on the ice for most of Ottawa’s scoring chances last period btw.

  93. I’d say that, Lin, but I don’t believe in momentum.

    I think it just breaks your spirit. My will to live.


  94. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

  98. Dubinsky’s first playoff point since like April 20 of last year

    damn good time for it, too

  99. McShanny Czar on

    Saw a couple of kids in Penn Station, 1 had Jags 68 NYR on other 14 Shanny. What a disgrace…

  100. Fargin call! Neil…….I can’t wait to run you over with a golf cart!!!!! Go PK!

  101. Dunno what the story is with Callahan’s finger but he’s been phenomenal tonight

  102. They cheated us.

    Thyey cheated us.

    Even if we wind up with even PPs, it doesnt matter, they have the better PP.

    That shouldve been saved. Im disgusted with Henrik righ tnow.

    We goot cheated

  103. McShanny……Don’t know if I’d have been able to pass by without saying something :)

  104. refs aren’t wearing goalie pads tonight. that’s a soft goal no matter how you slice it.

  105. What are these NBC announcers gonna do if Karlsson actually does something? Their pants are already crusty.

  106. The Senators just committed 2 penalties on that possession

    Right now Im so angry, Im wishing death on the referees. Thats normal for me, but I hope all of you are too.

    This is disgraceful.

    We’re the home team.

  107. Tiki, tonight of all nights, please lay off Hank…..only positive energy please…..

    Btw, Cup is staying with me the whole night and watching game….. She wants her namesake!!!!

  108. Henrik’s looked off all night. Let’s get this back!

    I want to see Neil cross checked just as much as everybody else, but Del Z should know that he’s revered by officials worldwide.

  109. so, did you hear the Alfie chant? They’re doing the same countdown they do in Ottawa, then they go “Alfie sucks, Alfie sucks, Alfie sucks.” Pretty hilarious.

  110. This isnt even a game. This is a controlled event. An event controlled by a league and swayed by biased referees.

    Its as obvious as can be. Theyre no longer trying to hide their bias.

  111. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Mickey, what makes you think that losing a limb would affect the refs to call a penalty? Only if it was a Sens limb!

  112. Yeah, he’s weak…..that’s why the Sens only have one goal…I am bring driven crazy here!!!!!!!

  113. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    LaTONYA, Neil committed the first foul, but as usual, the refs just don’t see anything he does!

  114. I think that pass by Kreider surprised Richards….that was some pass….I like that Kreider can pass and shoot….really like this kid’s game…

  115. Now would be a good time for the top line to show up on the scoresheet. Or for Anderson to remember he is a journeyman.

  116. Its impossible to believe that they havent committed one single penalty this game.

    This is a sham.

    a mockery.

    A disgrace to humanity.

    I just wish some crazy fan would come out of the stands, grab a stick and decapitate Dan OHalloran like the rodent he is.

  117. I don’t know why it annoys me so, but if I don’t hear “Gonchar” for another five months that is fine by me.

  118. hanks been great, the goal was bad yes. no biggie. we have to keep up the forecheck though, we cant kep relying on him to bail us out. these pp like possessions gota stop or its sad van time

  119. ThisYearsModel on

    Will we get a power play, or will we have guys tackled the entire game with nothing called?

  120. funny how these refs all seem to have something more pressing to look at when Ottawa commits an infraction

  121. Wow. These criminals called a penalty. We wanna win, we have to capitalize on the rare opportunity these criminals give us.

  122. you kind of forget that the referees not giving the Rangers power play opportunities actually does them a favor

  123. McShanny Czar on

    No the kid with 14 nyr jersey! Not you…maybe a ref in a real league but i’m sure you wouldn’t do NHL!

  124. Yeah, youre right LLoyd. Id rather have had 0 penalties on both teams, but we knew that wasnt going to be an option, seeing as how Ott was 6th in PPs on season. I wish I could just not be so angry, but thats all there is inside of me. Hate, Disgust, Vitriol.

  125. Blogmama Go Tony!!!! on

    Carp, how you keep up with this asylum and cover game is beyond me……Carp = Monster

  126. Kreider is something special eh? best player on the ice in his 5th ever NHL game…

  127. noew hopefully the stubborn one puts him on the 2nd unit already. Nice to see Mitchell and Fedotenko no longer there…

  128. Tiki:

    I mean, I’m jumping up and down screaming like anyone else when the officials repeatedly screw the Rangers, but then that power play comes out and it’s just like, counting off 2 minutes until Ottawa gets a guy back the Rangers play better.

  129. The same way they got a PP with an opportunity to eliminate the Capitals with 2:30 yesterday on nothing is the same way they called a penalty with us up 2-0 here to get Ott back in game. These arent sports. These arent games. These arent fair. These are controlled events, affected by bias.


    after playoffs are over he wont play a single NHL game just like McIlrath! according to my source…

  131. C’mon guys —

    you know if Stralman scored a buzzer-beater, the goal would be under review, and then overturned by Toronto because the phantom game clock would’ve run out of time before the puck crossed the goal line.. And then MSG would have been an absolute HELL… By not scoring, Stralman and Anderson may have saved some lives…. ;)

  132. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    OK, boys – we want to win this next period for *Boyler* – send these bums home unhappy!

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


    Im on the edge of my seat!!!

    Pritty tense!!!

    Our boys are playin GREAT!!!


    Greatest team showing their worth!!!

    LETS DO THIS!!!!



    What are we waiting for , lets do this…Right now!!!

  134. Former Devil, John Madden, got killed by his own man. Suspension for head hot to be handed out by Shanahan?

  135. Pretty byfuglien amazing how Hagelin gets suspended less than 2 weeks ago and Kreider is all of a sudden a regular Ranger….awesome!

  136. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    And Guys, if we don’t score on the remaining PP, for God’s sake, PAY ATTENTION to the guy coming out of the penalty box!

  137. Golf is the only real sport. A gentleman’s game. Fairness and honesty, and integrity. Things that referees, umpires, commissioners wouldnt know the first thing about.

  138. ThisYearsModel on

    Michalek, the guy that has no business playing in this game has played pretty well. I guess kicking opponents pays off.

  139. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Yeah, the “phantom clock” trick, Per – another Toronto marvel of modern science….

  140. True Blue Mike (Del Zotto's Swagger) on

    Michalek looks like a man on a mission. Then again so does Kreider — or a boy on a mission.

  141. golf is an excuse for fat white men to be fat white men

    kinda feels like we’ve got enough opportunities for that already


    It’s Pizza Pizza, you Boneheads and MF’s!!

    I’m a man playing pond hockey with a bunch of nervous rich-kids. Life Couldnt be any better!

    Pizza, anyone??

  143. True Blue Mike (Del Zotto's Swagger) on

    If the Rangers win tonight I will be watching the rest of the playoffs alone in my basement due to their increased level of play under these circumstances or is it just because they were facing elimination?

  144. Blogmama Go Tony!!!! on

    4ever, he walked in the place ilb were at, and everybody at the door who saw him outside cheered when he walked in :) kinda cool……

  145. True Blue Mike (Del Zotto's Swagger) on

    Gudbranson is going to be a great player for the Panthers. The kid has some snarl.

  146. I feel an empty pit inside my stomach. An emptiness, filled with sickness, with deadly anger. I really hope we score, at least one goal and also dont allow any goals against, before the first TV timeout at the under 14.

  147. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    >>>golf is an excuse for fat white men to be fat white men

    Tiger Woods used it to get lots of women – and he’s not fat or white!

  148. True Blue Mike (Del Zotto's Swagger) on

    Google for NHL games if you need a live feed online

  149. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Calm down a bit, Tiki – we’re ahead, going into the third period – it could be a whole LOT worse!

    Now, having a couple more-goal lead would be nicer, but…

  150. Ok, Carp. LOL though. Thats like asking a prisoner to enjoy his prison cell. Im in prison, and Ive got a life sentence.

  151. Carp, a Rangers game is 60 minutes of anxiety and a great night’s sleep after they win.

  152. Tiki,
    have a couple drinks and stop screaming…Refs can’t hear you anyway, and the rest of the bloggers almost deaf.

  153. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    20 MINUTES OF MAYHEM!!!!!!!

    LETS GO RANGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  154. COME ON GUYS!!!! Please answer the bell!!!! Beat any team that stands in your way!!!!!! COME ON!!!!!

  155. 20 minutes left. Let’s do this boys!!

    More goals for the Rangers, lots of defending and Hank saves!

  156. It feels strange, but I just cant see the Rangers losing this game. I would like another goal, however. In 1994 Game 6 ECF, Debbies had a 2-0, then 2-1 lead going into 3rd period. Then #11, Messier did his thing. Alfie wears #11. His team is down 2-1 going into 3rd. I’m nervous, but confident.

    Good for Joe Michelletti — shutting up Sam asking about Giants’ draft. Who cares about football???

  157. Gregm_section403 on

    Carp, yes Gabby has been good. But there are a few times when he’s standing around. And gliding. But u r there with a better view, so i’ll defer to you.

    BTW. Great job with all you’re doing on the blog and the paper!

  158. orr- they love nascar in iowa. they built a new racetrack in my town. it brings a few vh1 type celebrities too

  159. I really want the Rangers to get a couple more goals here but I am also afraid that if they get to many goals things will get out of hand if you know what I mean . . . .

  160. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Tiki, if you were in prison, you would have a lot more to worry about that the Ranger score…chill, buddy!

  161. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    Dear Henrik,

    this is YOUR 20 minutes. Work your magic! WALLQVIST!!!

    Your Loyal Subjects (aka Rangers Fans!)

  162. Has Alfie always been this big a diver? or has the crappy officiating taught it to him?

  163. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) April 26th, 2012 at 9:02 pm
    >>>Jimbo said boob

    I did!?

    no u did jimbo!

  164. YES!!! A Pnealty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! COME ON GUYS!!!!!!! PLEASE Please please please just score a PP GOAL!!!

  165. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    OK, no more PP’s for us – we suck so bad at them and we give up scoring chances!! DECLINE!!

  166. DUBI!!!! He set up the 2nd goal, and he couldve redeemed his whole season right there. Come on DUBI!!!

  167. That was the worst power play I have ever seen. Now is not the time to be casual or pretty.

  168. We have the best goalie in the entire world. I have to believe Henrik will win us this game. I have to believe that, otherwise it just isnt a world worth living in.

  169. dubinsky holy crap man do you ever score anymore? what happened to this guy? he is such a good player in every facet BUT scoring.

  170. 16 of the past 19 shots, but still only a 1-goal lead.. Game still up for grabs. NYR must FINISH a scoring play – gosh.

  171. Terrible waste of hard and rare moments, reckless puck handling in PP. Gabby sadly lost his rifle scoop and gunpowder. Other than that Rangers are great today.

  172. “Someone please take the PP out back and shoot it.”

    It would be more apt to take it out back and pass it around a bit before seeing somebody else steal it.

  173. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Leave Alfie alone – when they did that taunt last period, he scored a goal right after it!

  174. Rangers mostly playing very well, but I still expect the Senators to score every time they enter the zone. Nice feeling.

  175. They dont need to taunt Alfie. He was a great player, and can still play real well. Taunt Neil. Cheer on the boys. Chant “Boyle”…

  176. Olga Folkyerself on

    Dear God. I don’t ask for much. Remember that new bicycle for my 10th birthday? I didn’t get it. You took Chicago away earlier.

    Let me have this.

  177. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    That’s right, Per – Alfie hasn’t been our nemesis in this series – Neil, yes, but I’d love to hear a chant for Boyler!!

  178. Defensive zone faceoffs against Konopka in a one goal game in the third period less than ten minutes left… Just ate a big Mac hamburger and a beer… Not a good combo.

  179. I’ll be here, Mama, but my heart rate is dangerously high. I will put back on in a few.. just need to calm down. I NEVER quit on this team.

  180. Carp you’re awesome but MacLean and F D R as look alikes? Cmon man you’re better than that! :)

  181. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    >>>They should show Boyle on the screen.

    Get word to the booth, Carp!!

  182. Not to be a jinx, but I’m shocked and happily surprised that these teams have played hockey and not gone all Philthy/Crybabies ….

  183. My bad- on the chat this afternoon you put fdr not TR-TR works-hopefully in about 2 minutes he’ll be calling his home golf course for tee times

    thanks to ALL for your comments and twitter!!!

    i was banned from watching the game but kept up via board/tweets
    and still had my heart pounding out of my chest

    watched the final seconds

    smile smile smile

    GO TONY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOUR CDS ARE ON THE WAY!!!!!!!

  205. Czechthemout!!! on

    Great game by everyone!!!!!! See you later andof course, Saturday!!!,


  206. and somewhere gary bettman is screaming on the phone
    at shanny for not doing enough to kneecap the Rangers

  207. holy cow, just flipped to the devils panthers games…look at all those empty seats!

  208. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    yea we went directly to the damned devils game

    at least i can have some dinner now

  209. Im crying right now. TONY!!!! TONY!!! TONY!!!! TONY!!!! Our hero!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TONY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TONY!!!! I LOVE YOU TONY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  210. Wasn’t going to say it before now, but Ottawa played a hell of a series for a team that was supposed to be the worst in the entire conference this year.

  211. >>So this is it for Sam and Joe? No more MSG broadcasting?

    I guess NBC holds the exclusive rights for the rest of the playoffs. Frankly, I won’t miss Sam and Joe.

  212. kept listening to New York boys Vampire Weekend
    with a Bruce Springsteen photo nearby.

    hmmmmm…..any other superstitions?
    oh yeah, jpg’s sister won’t let me be upstairs during the game.
    i get to watch the recorded version and as long as we win
    i can live live live with that!!

    much nuzzle love to all here (you know who you are)
    my family and lovely mrs. jpg
    for putting up with my Rangers Madness.

  213. Just like the Rangers fans take over Prudential Center when the Rangers play there, the Devils take over Florida’s building by taking all their empty seats with them.

  214. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    In New York, we have an hour postgame show – the hell with NBC, the Bastards!

  215. I’m happy to say I’m glad will be still taliking ranger hockey for another round against the craps.

  216. I wouldn’t miss Joe. Hopefully, NBC doesn’t use him some more. Expecting Darren Pang somewhere. NYR-Caps probably a Doc-Edzo-Pierre series.

  217. The Senatores cheated on every single faceoff of the entire series. Line your G*D D*MN F*CKING LEGS UP PROPERLY.

  218. I have respect for the Senators. They gave us a hell of a series. Neil led the way for the handshakes, good for him. Gabby and Kuba hugged, Alfredsson and Karlsson patted Hank on the chest. Love this sport.

  219. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    Another series against a Caps Rookie goalie! SLAY THE DEMON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  220. Must be because of the beginning of the period in Florida. Looked full at the beginning of the game.

  221. Stranger Nation on

    I think Hank was laughing just a little bit harder than Neil. Prust saying…

  222. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Just goes to show what confidence that Torts has in Kreider – having him out at the very end of the game – mucho respect!

  223. Joekuh - 13 more..GBT! on

    everyone still have their hearts? dubi, we’ll need u in round 2. bury a chance!!!

  224. Hoping for a Brodeur meltdown and tantrum in the last couple of minutes like the one against the Canes a few years ago.

  225. I think Gabby and Kuba were teammates on Minnesota’s run to the conference finals a few years back, and they’re both Czechoslovak.

    Great series of playoff hockey for the most part. Proud of NYR, but give credit to Ottawa. They gave us one hell of a fight.

  226. True Fans Bleed RW&B on


    So far so good …

    *True fans bleed rw&b April 8th, 2012 at 9:49 am*
    Ottawa is a pretty bad first round matchup. They have skill, size and some toughness.
    Don’t forget the send went 3-1 in the season series and the rangers just cannot contain spezza. Add to that Karlson, a premier blue liner, and this is far from an easy step to round 2. This one will go 6 or more…. Perhaps Not a good start towards a long run.

    *Carp April 8th, 2012 at 11:54 am*
    if they can’t beat the Senators, then they’re not beating Pittsburgh or Philly next … so I don’t know what the hell you guys are talking about.

    *True Fans Bleed RW&B April 8th, 2012 at 12:00 pm*
    You don’t think NJ or Wash can win their series? I’d bet the Conf finals matchup would be Pitt or Philly (if the Rangers can get there), and I won’t be surprised if both NJ and Wash find a way to win their series.
    I would anticipate Rangers vs. Wash round 2 while Pitt vs. Bos faceoff.

    *Carp April 8th, 2012 at 12:12 pm*
    True, Washington would have to beat Boston. I don’t see that happening. Devils could beat Florida, no doubt.

    *True Fans Bleed RW&B April 8th, 2012 at 12:31 pm*
    You’re right, caught me with the wrong matchups. Still…
    *I think Wash can give Boston a run for their money and, actually, i’ll put it here – i predict:*
    *Rangers vs. Caps* second round and
    *Pitts vs. NJ.*

  227. Didn’t some of the cliff-jumpers in Game 5 berate Tortorella for ruining Kreider’s confidence in contrast to how MacLean was going to use Mark Stone?

  228. Phew!!

    Nice win. Full credit to the Sens, they battled hard, hung in there for 7 games. I’ll take Chris Neil on my team any day, or just Konopka for face-offs..

    Now.. on to the CRAPS.. Lots of history to payback. Especially last year’s 3-0 blown lead and OT loss.

    Let the Debbies and Philthy KILL each other! Ha!

    And you know what? I like John Mitchell – just not on the pp.

  229. Blogmama Go Tony!!!! on

    True, your point? wow, you guys who find/save posts…..wish I had that much free time…..wait, I do….wtb?

  230. True Fans Bleed RW&B on

    If you remember a few key words it takes less than 2 mins to find using an efficient google search blogmama

  231. Oh HELL YEAH!!

    I’m hoping to be able to go to DC for a game.

    You know, I could feel that the Rangers were going to win this game by the way they played the game throughout. They were in the Senators face all game and when they play like that good things happen. Of course there were times when I almost jumped out of my chair, but all-in-all the Rangers played their game.

  232. Before I forget:

    “Ad the difference between me and you carp, is that if this team came out and looked great, i would be the first one to eat my words and say i was wrong about turderella, and be happy i was wrong. You,n the other hand, refuse to even acknowledge that there is a potential Ranger disaster here, and that the clueless coach “in charge” might be implicit in what is happening, or more accurately what is not happening.”

  233. LW3H —

    Yes, some of the “anti-Tortites” were blasting the coach on his use of the Kreider. Well, look at Kreider and his coach now.

    Nice win for the “Italian Dictator” (as another cliff-jumping susan fool derogatively referred to our Coach.)


  235. I don’t know how these players do it. I feel tired for them. And now another series? And then another? AND THEN ANOTHER? I’d be so tired. Maybe not when I’m paid millions.

  236. True fans bleed rw&b on

    My point is that sometimes Carp gets on and calls people’s predictions crazy… But I think mine have been pretty darn good.

    You don’t win the first annual 2010 predictions contest on pure luck afterall…. Just a whole lot, and maybe one or two logical predictions.

  237. Blogmama Go Tony!!!! on


    True, I guess LW proved your theory :)

    I am only going to be super super happy tonight!!!!!!!! mama love all around!!!!!!!

  238. Hey- Did Jason Spezza even play tonight??

    I remember Jakob Silvferberg and Matt Gilroy more.

  239. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    all i know is Nashville Yotes tomorrow at 8. I’m sure once the debils game is over, the rest will be released

  240. Orr–

    Michalek was a warrior out there. I’m impressed. Thank Messier he did not score. ;)

    Spezza on the other hand…

  241. ThisYearsModel on

    The Real Marc Staal is back. What a beast. We have a second line again with Stepan and Kreider. When Boyler returns, Johnny Malkin can rest.

  242. First time on the boards all night. My series thoughts great game plan on Karlsson, Spezza was a no show. Cally may have a broken finger play hard but weird. Kreider shift by shift making Giant strides. Staal stepped up big time tonight. Hank had a goal go off MDZ a kick in goal by shrek one or two empty netters, just willing it out of the net, we will go as far as we can. Torts says we ain’t changing in this series and he was right and ment it. Chris Neil was almost soft tonight, maybe playing with a rattled head. Best of all got 4 tix on the blue line for all away games, so we got some Ranger fans in the Verizon center. Pumped

  243. Kreider does look great. I dont remember seeing the Rangers bring up a rookie who had this much impact in games 5 games into his career. Not necessarily getting goals (Christian Dube), but positioning, play along the boards, play with and without the puck… And this is the playoffs. I do remember Leetch coming up, he looked real good, but he played ‘D’ which takes more time to learn…

    Wow to Kreider. He helped save this season.

  244. Stranger Nation on

    Loved Spezza and Alfie coasting back on Danny G’s goal – McLean must popped a blood vessel.

  245. Ottawa had a lot of give-aways, and that missed empty-netter early in the game when Andersson was flopping around behind the net — I almost popped an aneurysm.

  246. Ye, Orr, youre right. Neil was very quiet compared to the first 6 games. Especially the middle 5 games.

  247. i’ll take Parisi over Nash. Parisi is clutch, and is a leader. Nash is trying to Sidney his way out of Columbus.

  248. Kreider went from “he won’t play”, to nervous rookie, to gaining confidence, to outstanding player tonight who the coach put out there in crunch time to protect the lead.

    Quite a journey.

  249. How great was it that Staal got 26 minutes of ice time, more than Danny G…

    Would you guys agree we have Marc Staal back in full form?

    Nice triple threat of Danny G, Staal, and McDonuts! then Del Zastero, Strals, and Bicks..

  250. Orr…. Nash is still Sidney-ing a little too loudly for my taste. Parise is captain of (I’m loathe to admit) one of the more successful franchises in the (bush) league.. And Parise can handle NY… I dont know if Nash can handle NY..

    I’d rather keep Dubumsky and Erixon, too.

    Prust sayin’!

    But I’d still love to have Nash anyway – just not as much as JP’s kid.

  251. An awesome job in eliminating a very determined underdog that wouldn’t go away! Now maybe they can build on a good series that they refused to quit on! LGR!!!

  252. Parise has done absolutely nothing in Jersey. Invisible. Nash has played on an embarrassment of an organization. Can you blame the guy for wanting out? And he’s trying to get something in return for the team as well.

  253. Fishler was like “You had Hagelin there on the ice at the last shift” Torts was like “Ye, are you asking a question or making a statement?” The entire room of reporters laughed

  254. He was talking about how NYR defended their aasens off in the third, ORR, and Stan goes “Two goals from defenseman!” Torts replied “Yeah.. yeah.. that helped too” and got back on topic. The tone of his voice and his expression were priceless!

  255. Just an amazing game tonight. Nail-biting, I got to watch my 69 year old father pacing back and forth saying “I can’t take this! If Ottawa ties it I’m gonna pass out!”

    Fantastic job by the Rangers, and I’ll give kudos to Neil for standing first on the handshake line.

    Ottawa was SCARY good with the pressure at times. But Hank had what might have been one of his best games as a Ranger when it counted.

    Kreider…wow, he looks like the REAL DEAL. Good for Torts showing faith in the kid who was one of the best players on the ice tonight.

    Huge win. Now we get to exact some revenge on the Capitals for two playoff exits.

    I’m so proud of how our young players did tonight. Kredier, Hagelin, Stepan…the future is bright for the New York Rangers.

    Good night all!!! WOO-HOO!!!!!!!

  256. Woo Hoo! Amazing how the Rangers always manage to bring up a young, energetic, effective substitute each time a player goes down to injury. I don’t remember this since I started following them in the 1950s-1960s. Kreider’s play was amazing…Henrik played a Vezina worthy game and saved the day. Good team effort! And Staal seems to be finding his game again. Some great plays all the way around. Girardi is a hoot in the interview.

  257. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    so, after tonights victory, i guess it is safe to say the season was NOT a “DIBOCKLE” ;-)

  258. True Blue Mike (Del Zotto's Swagger) on

    Okay time to start talking Washington/Rangers. Carp, likelihood of Zuccarello and Boyle back in sometime during the second round? Maybe throw Eminger in for Bickell?

  259. True Blue Mike (Del Zotto's Swagger) on

    I must say I always thought Kreider was never going to be as good as everyone thought he would be but I am so glad that I was wrong

  260. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    Orr!! Is that your “Captain Hindsight” statement of the night ;-)

    i kid i kid. that statement is sooooooooooooooo true! and all those comments saying “Kreider showed nothing”… well,he sure showed a lot the last 2 games! Glad he’s here!!

  261. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Still feel the same way as a while ago, Lin!? I hope he isn’t reading the blog!!

  262. True Blue Mike (Del Zotto's Swagger) on



    That would be a great line-up. Use that 4th line against the top line and then roll the other three and ignite the offense.

  263. HageLinMcCalPruBoylahan on

    how could there NOT be contact with brodeur, his flab is all over the ice
