It’s Go Time!


Rangers-Capitals Game 5.

Ya boys aren’t at “must-win” territory yet … especially since they’ve come back from 3-2 down once already in these playoffs. I expect they will play very well tonight, good enough to win. Does that mean victory? No idea. If I had to guess: Yes.

For what it’s worth (and it’s worth nada) the Rangers have lost four consecutive Game 5s. Actually, that’s worth less than nada.

Keep your fingers crossed that we paid the electric bill and won’t have another one of those outages tonight. God forbid.


Since youse will either be feeling frisky (my boss’s word) or ready to leap off the GWB tomorrow, the doctor will be in the house with a between games Live Chat at noon. Be there. Or else.

Knowing you guys, I’m sure we can pretty much fire and trade everybody if they lose tonight … or if they win, we can start talking about whether Stu Bickel plays Game 7 against the Kings in June and if they’ll wear their white or blue jerseys at the parade.

(Headzo, still waiting for you to contact me re: your first-round predictions contest championship.

Let’s Go Tony!

    Will Avery still be getting his name on the cup?! That’s really the only question on all of our minds at the moment, Carp.

  3. From the previous thread since I was perusing the NYS DMV website and got lost…

    I don’t bite myself, eddie :P

    4ever, you may have a kiss. If you kick my moving companies assen for me and get my money back.

  4. What would the dates be of the Stanley Cup final? I have to be out of the country from June 5th to the 11th. Does that mean I’m byfugliened?

    From the last thread:

    OK, LaTonya – yeah, it’s awful – hearing all the *Fatso Love* by the hockey media is simply sickening. And that sad-sack coach of theirs is a “genius” all of a sudden – blech!!!

    I would gladly do it for you, Mickey.
    Can be scary sometimes. Speaking of movers…How about threat of total castration by poisoned lawnmover, borrowed from Carp?

  7. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Carp – any eric sightings? Tell him to keep the faith!!

  8. What’s it going to be for the refs tonight. Is the game going to be called as it should or are the refs going to wait until 6 minutes or so left in the game to give the Craps a power play in a tie game. I don’t trust the refs or the NHL so it’s a toss up.

  9. Eddie, only if I get a massage outta it!

    4ever, That will suffice. I need to get my anger out. I still want my money back though!

    Carp, YES!! Back to being a NYer!! As of yesterday. Just outside of Rochester actually. My plates and license still say Missouri, but I am back where I belong :)

    And they will NEVER mention the overtly pathetic goals that Brodeur has allowed all series, but instead they’ll open the broadcast with some debatable goals in Henrik. I want to chuck upward.

    The clowns stink-up-the-joint tonight.

    I won’t even predict the score because it’ll be so embarrassing.

    Sweet dreams.

  25. WOW!!
    i was just about to bitch that it was another bad angle shot
    and then

  26. Stralman with 3 goals this playoffs. Paging Del Zotto and Stepan to step up

  27. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Yes, that was from a long ways away – along the boards…not a great save there by The Prodigy!

  28. Ovechcants Crooked Nose on

    Am I the only one who finds the balloons in the stands incredibly distracting?

  29. 4everanger 4 Tony and Miami Pimp on

    Stral absolutely saw and knew where he wants to shoot…One gracious move: skate-shot. Beauty!

  30. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Not happening here, JBytes – must be a lot of system loading in your neighborhood…

  31. Blogmama Go Tony!!! on

    Mama is barely keeping her eyes open……we had best win tonight.

  32. He said he was happy with the way they were playing. And said they’ve been trying to put the shots on the net all series, but today they are getting a few through, Carp

  33. Thanks, Jimbo. I’m definitely ditching Dolanvision at the end of the season.

  34. ThisYearsModel on

    Torts said that the team has come out well, and that they have been getting some shots through, which was their plan.

  35. This team may have some guts, but they sure don’t have the killer instinct. Finish him!

  36. Good late hit by MDZ. Theyve committed 4 penalties in the period and only been called for 1.

  37. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Good! Hit the SOB Chimera – make him feel some pain..

  38. They’re not too tidy in the neutral zone. They don’t seem tot want to take the lead into intermission.

  39. Miami Pimp on

    How the hell did Slovakia defeat Team USA?

    Embarrassing and unacceptable.

  40. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Hanging in – if we get out of this period with a lead, I’ll be happy..

  41. You know, when you hear the crowd cheering for a guy thrown out of the face off circle or an offsides or a good clear from the D zone, you think maybe Carp romanticizes how hockey smart the old crowds were. I don’t remember my blue seat brethren being so savvy.

  42. Would be nice if they could ever get a two or three goal lead out of periods they play as well as that.

  43. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Decent, Carp – lots of shots for us, but not really a lot of “hard to stop” ones – I’ll take it, though!

  44. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    If we can keep possession of the puck that much in the next 2 periods, we should be OK – if they get it, they should be HIT! Hard!

  45. JBytes

    late on this
    but my broadcast was freezing here and there
    could be due to a major storm that passed through

  46. iDoodie machetto: get well Tony on

    Good first period. I think I saw Eric in the bathroom, but by the time I was done taking a squirt, he was gone.

  47. great period although Washington has the elite talent to score 3 goals on 10 shots

  48. lw- jr’s intuned with a big fat jibber jabber and a pink floyd laser light show

  49. 4everanger 4 Tony and Miami Pimp on

    I hope, Rangers learn already, that they need second goal PRONTO!
    Also, every time I look at SEMIN I think: how come that no one advised him how to avoid ridiculous association in spelling this way his name in English instead of spell it how it really sound in Russian – Syomin.

  50. ThisYearsModel on

    We need to stop giving stuff on the rush or we will be in trouble. All 4 of Hank’s saves were tough ones.

  51. 4ever- i agree we need 2nd an 3rd and 4th n so on. or, we could out ranger them and block our way to victory

  52. iDoodie machetto: get well Tony on

    Btw, Fetus Machetto is not here and is not watching the game at home. No Fetus jynxus

  53. 4everanger 4 Tony and Miami Pimp on

    I’ll be careful here – it’s not MUST win game, but they have to win it. Agree?

  54. Good period… not great but 100X better than last game’s 1st period. I like the fact that they are shooting regardless of where they are in the offensive zone. Just keep the pressure up and keep hitting and shooting!!!!!

  55. how i really really really really
    that the Rangers would watch and learn
    how a power play works
    by watching what other teams do

  56. ThisYearsModel on

    Callahan lookes bummed having to play with the snails Boyle and Artie.

  57. PP Redemption!!!!! come on lets do something, for the love of god, convert on this!!!

  58. “The seemingly long Mike Green minor” ??? Exactly what a fan would say. Thanks for confirming for the 1000th time Doc that youre a fan of any team facing the Rangers

  59. twice they shoot in so holtby can move the puck!?!?!?

    there’s stupid and then there’s you should be
    beaten because you’re acting so majorly stupid!!!

  60. No matter what positive things they’re responsible for, whichever coach is responsible for the power play needs to be fired.

  61. If you’re the caps why not take any necessary penalties? The rangers PP is so inept you might as well play the percentages

  62. These stupid penalties are a plague. Not everyone’s PP is terrible. Maybe that’s what they have learned to think: power plays mean nothing, so go ahead and take penalties.

  63. Carp
    please ask the players why in holy hades they
    shoot the puck into the zone
    that’s basically a turnover?

    can’t stand it!!!!

    serenity now!!

  64. I don’t have a problem with the call, but it has to be made against both teams.

  65. Ah, looking on replay, it may have been too late by DZ. 6 penalties committed by them and 2 called, 2 penalties committed by us and 2 called.

    Lundqvist looks superb tonight.

  66. LaTONYa from Miami on

    All because Staal decided not to quickly move the puck to the forward before pressure arrive. Quick decisions with the puck, please!

  67. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    So, wasted nearly half a game dominating, and now a tie score….fugg!!

  68. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    I can’t blame Hank for that one – guy gets the puck right in the slot and shoots immediately – what can he do?

  69. Glad to see them back to getting pucks towards the net.

    Wish Hags could score.

    Yeah, Gabby’s not hurt.

  70. Committed a 7th penalty a couple minutes ago. We’ll have to wait until their 9th committed penalty to get a 3rd power play.

  71. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    I guess every freakin’ game has to be a single-goal death struggle…sigh…

  72. saw that coming.

    no killer instinct.

    playing just enough to hold on

    and Hank off in Nowheresville
    moving right as puck goes left

    oh yeah,
    and brilliant lack of shooting from Richards

    well Carp
    there’s another one of your NO MOMENTUM lines in action
    Rangers couldn’t be bothered to keep up with what they did in the first friggin’ period.

    yeah, i’m p…………ed

  73. Tiki, we don’t WANT a PP right now. They are just sucking the life outta this team. I’d rather it stay 5 on 5.

  74. iDoodie machetto: get well Tony on

    So during the last game MSG had me cut one of those get loud style promos. Well they showed it tonight… And the capitals scored immediately afterwards.

  75. 4everanger 4 Tony and Miami Pimp on

    That’s exactly what I was talking about (quick second goal). One unlucky bounce in other dominated game and…Cooke!!!

  76. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Tiki, getting a PP isn’t much help to us – Prust sayin’….

  77. Too bad Rangers don’t know what to do with the puck after they’ve worked hard to retrieve it.

  78. someone please shove some oxy down my throat during this power play!!!!

    cant’ stand it anymore

  79. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Yeah, screw that chant – it isn’t original – it’s bush-league! (Sorry, Miami!)

  80. leetchhalloffame on

    2 things Rangers, no matter how much practice cannot do. Get a decent pp or have Henrik actually handle the puck semi-well. Trade the whole team.

  81. Rollin Dubious on

    Hahahahahaha..and it figures caps have best chance on our power play.

  82. Mike- From the LEDGE on

    The Caps block more shots than us and play Ranger hockey with better skilled players. This is how they beat the Bruins and this is how they will beat us. Have to face reality this team is better than us and is going to beat us

  83. well, that was another 2 minutes
    the Rangers aren’t going to get back.

    be looking at those when the caps get their make up calls
    midway through 3rd period

  84. leetchhalloffame on

    How can the Rangers really expect to win a Cup with the dreck they show on the power play?

  85. LaTONYa from Miami on

    If it were another team with this pressure, I would say that I “feel one coming.” But it’s NYR.

  86. This is an elimination game, right Mike? Since you said it was impossible for the Rangers to win a game in D.C. and all…

  87. Carp

    i’m seriously losing my mind with the idiotic Board Hockey b.s.
    sending a pass to the puck and have nobody around for a rebound.

    i’m sorry.
    i know that Torts is working with what he has and it’s worked in the regular season
    but if we’re a team “built for the playoffs” we sure don’t look like it.
    we look a lottery pick team offensively.

    it’s Hockey Logic that’s killin’ me. get in front of the net!!!

  88. LaTONYa from Miami on

    Come on, Cally! Get your head up!

    I HATE those blind passes to the front of the net.

  89. leetchhalloffame on

    Is Dublowsky ever coming back? Now there’s the scorer we need!

  90. jpg- its called, not having enough skill. for instance, look who scored our only goal. nuff said

  91. 4everanger 4 Tony and Miami Pimp on

    Rangers are playing really good, except finish(scoring). Another very strong game from AA, which I can’t say about MDZ – he is back to his bad self positioning and desisions. Also, I’m under impression, thatour catain is playing hurt.

  92. ThisYearsModel on

    Brian Boyle bleeds Ranger blue and we all love him, but he is killing the second line offensively, and the Caps goal off his stick like most pucks go.

  93. Onecupin72yearsand counting on

    ” MEEE MEEEE MEEEEE MEEEEE ” the Fat Lady is warming up folks .

  94. iDoodie machetto: get well Tony on

    Once capitals get the lead, it would behoove them to take a string of minor penalties to protect it.

  95. Miami Pimp on

    This team is just not good enough. Can’t score.

    This is obviously going to be a loss.

  96. 4everanger 4 Tony and Miami Pimp on

    Say what you want, but our boys playing better, more comprehend hockey in POs then in most regular season’s games. Could it be enough to proceed further, I don’t know, but not for the lack of efforts, that’s for sure.

  97. why can’t they put the puck on net when cycling/ can’t find an open man. Just put it on net from any angle.

  98. grabby

    i know we don’t have the same skill as caps
    that doesn’t mean that the Rangers have to play so
    awfully stupid

    power play doesn’t change.
    if we don’t have some major shooter from the point
    then work it differently.
    show something different
    try something different!!!
    same Board Hockey that’s not working!!!!

  99. iDoodie machetto: get well Tony on

    Not a good period for our boys. Good season though.

  100. why oh why can they not score goals!!? Holtby is good but not a difference maker tonight at least. I have zero confidence in just one freaking goal being scored this third period, and that’s sad.

  101. Gravy, Swedish Meatballs with Noodles and on

    This one has 6 OTs written all over it. You may miss your deadline Carp.

  102. LaTONYa from Miami on

    I thought they lost in five games last round. They’re still playing?

  103. big salary on

    Could Richards and Gaborik maybe finish once or twice?? lots of chances and no finish.

    and Boyle is not the same player since he got hurt.

  104. czechthemout!!! on

    look, Torts has done alot for this team but we are offensively challenged as it is. Why is he playing lines that have no hope of generating anything on offense? we are playing like a one line team. why is Cally playing Boyle? Cally’s offensive game is being stifled by that line. the same can be said for Stepan. I mean really? With Feds and Prust. Change the damn lines because you are making it easier for the Craps to win this game.

    Torts. stop playing prevent offense for god sakes!!!

    I wont even talk about the pathetic power play with Wayne Mitchell on it.

  105. yeah
    i think i may be heading there soon.

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

    Haglin is doing great , he’ll get a goal or someone on the top line will!!!

    Lookin good , just need to slam home a few goals and seal ths deal!!!


    lets do this!!!!

  107. E3 pimp's Angel on

    Rangers will win – I can feel it – gabby or hags with the GWG – rangers win 2-1

  108. 4everanger 4 Tony and Miami Pimp on

    In games like that what really matters – everyone’s total and extreme concentration. One stupid mistake, brain fart, technical glitch and it cost you irrevocable damage and further participation. From other hand you can’t think about it – or it create a tension and “paralyze” natural instincts. LGRTOTHEENDOFPO!

  109. czechthemout!!! on

    very disappointed with Torts tonight. he is trying to win this game with fourth and more fourth line players. too bad.

  110. PP is really hurting… that’s the worst part of their game tonight (and most nights) for Kreider sake if they can get a PP goal what a difference it would make

  111. ThisYearsModel on

    I thought Henrik had overcome the glove weakness. Based on this series, I was wrong.

  112. We’ve gotten better chances right in front of the net, and they just score on that carcillo. Sickening.

  113. how effin pathetic NON-save from Mr. Vezina
    once again
    the Rangers sure do make a nobody goalie look like an All Star

  114. here comes the panic play of just shooting the puck at the net, blind passes with no set up… depressing

  115. Ted Sheckler on

    Ugh, I don’t even wanna watch this game anymore. Third time this series the PK fails in the third. Lousy time for it to start coming up short when it’s been so damn good all year.

  116. no surprise here, NHL getting what they want, screw the NHL and Buttman, go to hell you pieces of garbage. I hope Fehr causes you to have no season next year and kills what is left of this league.

  117. Why can we not score? I know we have never been an offensive team, but seriously? This lack of goals is pathetic.

  118. Well said jpg, another non save that Im sure Henny will have an excuse for in the postgame. Maybe he was screened this time by a shadow of Jesus Christ.

  119. LaTONYa from Miami on

    I always thought the Rangers PK was somewhat overrated. For all the kills we had, the other team usually had plenty of zone time. The penalties in the third have been inexcusable though.

  120. tomg the NHL does not want the Caps to win… If anything they would prefer NYR. We are doing this alone. Not elevating shots, not making wise players, over passing, the list goes on.

  121. I’m laughing at all of right now. Just chillaxxxx. It’s not the end of the world.

  122. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    So have I, Olga – so have I- it would be nice if the team could at least get a *SHOT ON GOAL* when we have a PP, though…

    We’ve got time to tie it. These jackwagons on NBC are all in Holtby’s shorts now, about how great he is – please!

  123. 4everanger 4 Tony and Miami Pimp on

    All I want to do is to cut my tongue or fingers (see my posts above). Wish I would be wrong.

  124. Malt O'Meal on

    Toothless, demotivating powerplay vs powerplay that scores sometimes = loss

    Rangers have proven they can’t beat WSH 1-0….on the upside, if they lose the series, they can largely blame themselves because i don’t think they have lost to the better team…just the team who took advantage of the opportunities they were given when the Rangers can’t score to save their lives. Holtby could be less than OK and still winning this series. As it is, he’s been just OK. Hank has had to stand on his head every period

  125. Olga Folkyerself on

    A little cloud appears on your horizon and it’s the end of the world…

  126. Per Djoos (Stay thirsty, my friends) on

    I can’t believe this is happening. The craps one up with a new unknown goalie every year who does us in, and then is car Illinois the next season.

    Eastern finals wil be Craps-devils. What a let-down.

  127. Hank, as good as he has been, has been outplayed by Holtby. Simple as that.

    The Rangers have had an AHL like offense all season long. It’s now bitten us right on the rear end.

    I won’t be watching Wednesday. Just far too painful. This is up there with the most disappointing times I’ve had as a Rangers fan.

    It’s gonna S-U-C-K to lose to this team AGAIN!

  128. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Fatso has absolutely SUCKED in his series, and he’s up 3 games to 1 – it’s the quality of the opposition that counts sometimes!

  129. Per Djoos (Stay thirsty, my friends) on

    This sucks – now a penalty. Chance for the craps to go for the jugular.

  130. Yay! 4 penalties committed, 4 called. You sure dont miss any calls against the Rangers, refs!! Yeah!!

  131. thanks for the laugh Tiki
    much needed.

    i don’t know even know why i’m watching
    but i’m too p*ssed to even work now.

    are we allowed to actually type p*ssed?

    i think it could be the word of the day here

    and hank is still unproven. hes not that good guys.


  133. Per Djoos (Stay thirsty, my friends) on

    The absence of a decent power play has been the death knell of this team this season.

  134. Malt O'Meal on

    Cue the collapse? Yikes, it’s much more frustrating as a fan to watch them lose when the team they are playing is not better than them. But, i guess if you are able to score on your PP then you are, in fact, a better team than the Rangers.

    Still a chance but they penalties, the missed shots, the shooting into shin pads, the wild scrambles of cycling that don’t generate even a remotely dangerous scoring chance — yeah, those should probably stop

  135. Olga Folkyerself on

    Love tap on Ovechkin… HIT HIM! Feet down, elbow down and smack right into him…

  136. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    There’s still 9 minutes left – WTF is wrong with everyone!?

  137. You really would like to get Torts and Sullivan in a room and ask them just what is so difficult about figuring out a PP…because we’ve gone a couple of seasons now with an atrocious PP that is now gonna cost us a chance to get to the Conference Finals.

  138. dude,
    Hank wasn’t screened on the shot that came from almost the blue line.
    they said in today’s posts that they were going to go glove hand
    and our brilliant goalie coach
    still can’t get his brilliant goalie
    to move a few more inches out of the freekin’ paint
    and have a better glove hand.
    glad he got all that rest this year
    (helped his guitar playing, i guess)

  139. 31 shots on goal… I have never seen a team not elevate their shots!!! Need to get them off the ice!

  140. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Can’t knock that sumbeeotch Ovie off his skates – a tank…

  141. Malt O'Meal on

    9 minutes left indeed and they can do it…only need one.

    But they’ve had plenty of chances in the first 50 minutes and haven’t been able to test holtby beyond what you’d expect during warmups….if even that. But yes, they can do it…this team can do it….just need one….lets go Rangers.

  142. can’t get anything going… is this the same team that played the 1st period???

  143. Miami Pimp on

    Lol this is SO PREDICTABLE

    I’m sitting here and literally have no confidence that this team will tie. None.

  144. even though I’m feeling disappointed right now I still love this team!

  145. ThisYearsModel on

    What a crappy way to go. After all the tremendous stops Hank has made all year……………..we are losing our third game on a long shot from the point.

  146. agree CJP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Carp came up with a better idea
    a couple dozen on the board could come up with a better idea on the power play
    but they keep going with trying to smash a square peg into round hole


  147. Blogmama Go Tony!!! on

    Grabby! You keep threatening to leave, at some point the door will be locked behind you! And the plants will die!!!!! Hungry and tired … Many have to go drown sorrows at diner…I feel the need for eggs.

  148. Blaming Lundquist or even the defense for this teams problems is pure folly. Look at the scoring stats. The forwards have been anemic.

  149. Not that it would help, but we’re sure not gonna see a PP to try to tie things up. Where’s the home cookin’? Theyve missed 4 penalties at least on them, but havent missed a penalty on us.

  150. Blogmama Go Tony!!! on

    Carp, get the nets out….ledges will be full tomorrow…..unless……..

    and hank is still unproven. hes not that good guys.



  152. Their best scoring chances come when there D men pinch… why they don’t do it more often, i don’t understand. It’s what won game 6 and 7 against the Sens

  153. The forwards and the PP have simply not got the job done. Not by a longshot. And that goes for everybody.

    Braeden friggin’ Holtby.

    That’s just a complete smack in the face. Hank oughtta go to the bench and start cross-checking his teammates and coaches. “Really, guys??? I gotta get a shutout EVERY FRIGGIN GAME FOR US TO GET A CHANCE TO WIN????”

  154. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Look at how our D-Men have bailed us out – we need a forward to STEP UP NOW!!!!

  155. we need a goal..let’s put prust and micthell out there with 3 minutes left….real smart

  156. leetchhalloffame on

    Henrik should sue this team for non-support, but sad fact is he’s being outplayed in net by a neophyte rookie. This is pathetic that the Devils are moving on and the Rangers will be golfing.

  157. ThisYearsModel on

    1:55 to go, down by a goal and our line is Prust-Mitchell-Fedotenko.

  158. Per Djoos (Stay thirsty, my friends) on

    3 power plays at home and NO SHOTS — absolutely unacceptable.

  159. Hank is not to blame, I agree. Goals. The lack of goals is whats killing em

  160. we win as a team
    we lose as a team but the goalie is the last line of defense
    and when Hank has a brain fart on caps first goal
    and doesn’t move out far enough or get his glove hand up high enough
    on a puck coming from (almost) the blue line
    and he’s (supposed to be) our All Star

    and yes,
    our players don’t understand the idea of putting the puck in the opposing team’s net
    and get worse and worse each game
    amazing that they made it this far up the hockey ladder
    (of course, when they leave New York they’ll probably turn into 30 goal scorers)

  161. Per Djoos (Stay thirsty, my friends) on

    Pierre is getting all hot in the pants regarding the craps protecting a lead. In sick of NBC.

  162. Miami Pimp on




  163. But yes we need to fire Mike Sullivan… He is an ineffective coach. Especially for special teams.

  164. LaTONYa from Miami on

    Worst rule in the league is allowing players to do that. Should be delay of game.

  169. if it ends up the Kings against the Devs, It will be interesting to see what the ratings will be. I know one thing, i won’t be watching. i hope the ratings are the worse in league history.

  170. Never give up on this team, not this year. I understand the frustration of some of the posters, but c’mon!

    Broadway Brad ha done this all year!

    This actually count a a ppg!!

    See what a power play goal can do? ;)

  174. the DIFFERENCE that time

    a change in what they’ve been doing

  175. And all of a sudden, that 4 minutes seemingly meaningless PP becomes a big deal.

  176. Olga Folkyerself on

    JBytes May 7th, 2012 at 10:02 pm

    All this will mean NOTHING if they don’t score in overtime.

    There is no silver lining that you can’t put a dark cloud around, is there?

  177. 4 minute major… this has been huge and can be huge-a-mongous if they can convert in OT

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



    Rangers baby !!!!!

    Sweeeeeet , OVERTIME ON THE PP!!!

    Tiki, with your emotional state, buddy, if you would be a gladiator, I’m pretty sure you would’ve tear apart couple lions by bear hands. Down with referees!… we go!…

  180. Malt O'Meal on

    know a lot of people were down on the guy for a less than expected season but if they take anything from these playoffs – besides realizing their powerplay (yes i saw that goal and ate crow) is atrocious – it is that Richie was worth it for what he has done in clutch moments…especially in the playoffs.

  181. Per Djoos (Stay thirsty, my friends) on

    Love Cally, but Richards is sooo clutch. Nothing like a veteran!

    Henrik is King.

    Cally is captain.

    Broadway Brad is Clutch.

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

    Didn’t I say someone on the top line would score?…..MUHAHAHA !!!!


  183. I think Richards needs his own Clutchmobile… wow. I was convinced they were going to lose this game in regulation.

    Game isn’t over yet – they have GOT to find a way to score the next goal.

    Here’s where conditioning may come into play (again).

    Go Rangers!

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

    Was it just me or right before they scored was there another delayed penalty?

  185. It would be the grandest thing since Super Bowl XLVI if we scored on this 2nd part of the PP. The referees thought they’d even things out with a PP to make things look fair on the stat sheet, thought theyd be giving us a meaningless PP. Please lets stick it in the face of these worthless piles of carcillo.

  186. E3 pimp's Angel on

    If john Scott were playing – he scores the game winner – since he isn’t – gabby or hags

  187. Per Djoos (Stay thirsty, my friends) on

    When will these idiots at NBC stop talking about “Ovie buying in” to Dale Cheapshot Hunter’s system. I’m tired of it.

  188. My son is on call in the hospital, he watched a few parts of the game, here and there. But he caught the last 4 min. This is what he texted me:”I just scared a few mothers into labor”

  189. 4everanger 4 Tony and Miami Pimp on

    Now, wonderboy HOLTBY can shave off his pubic beard.

  196. Lucky. Lucky. Lucky.

    Now change the damm power play. Put some people out there who will shoot the damm puck. Get Cally away from the Boyle line. Wasting one of out top goal scoresrs playing with that line. Can Boylae or Prust handle a pass? God, they should spend half the practice time on learning to handle a pass. My pee wee team does a better job accepting a pass than Boyle or Prust. How about giving Krieder aome PP time. He knows what to do with the ouck. Sit Gabby’s ass down. All he wants to do is stick handle and lose the puck.

  204. I will say it again, that was a STUPID penalty to take by Ward. Could be a series changer for the Rangers!

  205. was that Kreider who jummped so high at the bench
    that his left leg went over the boards?

  206. Malt O'Meal on

    What was I complaining about the PP and its terribleness?

    I think Staal saw my post and was pissed.

    He sure showed me….hope he proves me wrong many more times

  210. ThisYearsModel on

    Absolutely unbelievable. So happy for Staal. That would be 2 PPG’s, right?

  211. Glad the Rangers won that game – and with a shot from the point. Too bad we don’t get to hear Edzo’s and Pierre have to talk up the Rangers. Jackholes.

    At least that’s what I assume the Caps fans are saying right now…

  228. Stranger Nation on

    Think Green had more of a ‘whiplash’ when falling back then his head hitting. Either way, great *clean* hit by Girardi on someone who has had concussion issues – shoulder to shoulder, just like you are taught. Hope Ova was watching.

  229. Never give up, Never surrender!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And tonight, the Rangers KILLED THE REFEREES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  230. Blogmama Go Tony!!!! on

    AHHHH! jpg, I may have to go play that now! Awesome!!!!! Karma!!!! (disclaimer, I love Bruce, duh, but he’s a Devils fan….we all have our faults)

  231. I think Henny owes Richards, Ward, Staal and the rest of a team a steak dinner after they bailed him out tonight!!!!!!!

  232. Orr, I was just going to say the same. Not sure that hit won’t have any impacts on Green next game

  233. Unbrlievable !!! Stole that game. Good things happen when you shoot the puck. I think Mitchell is probably the best face-off guy the Rangers have, Don’t see him lose to many.

    Wow. Would be grat to close out the series in Washington.

  234. ORR!! What Is It Good For?!?! May 7th, 2012 at 10:31 pm
    It looked like Green whacked his head against the ice when Girardi hit him. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s concussed.

    I was thinking the same thing when I saw the replay

    My personal motto-song is Tom Petty – “I Won’t Back Down” – and that should be the RANGERS fight song!!

    It’s sad how Caps fans are now resorting to racist remarks, what a difference a couple weeks make

  240. Lloyd Braun on

    Seven seconds away from the season ending, imo. Even when that double minor was called with 20 seconds, I turned to my friend and said, “there’s another slap in the face from the officials.” And within another 1:40 of game time, the Rangers were a game away from winning the series on Wednesday night.

    Unbelievable game. Unbelievable season.

  241. I’m tempted to scroll up and read some of those pathetic comments. I mean, if you’re an actual fan of a team, how do you give up on them down a goal with thirteen minutes left? Embarrassing!

    In the words of Troutface! Brutal! Just BRUTAL!

  242. Presumably, everyone who had this down as “must win” or proclaimed the series to be over in the Caps’ favour at 2-1 doesn’t need to watch Game 6 now, because the Rangers have wrapped the series up tonight?


  243. never left the bandwagon on

    they won the last 2 games vs Ott, so there is no way they were out of it. but this is a great way to top off a great season continuing.

  244. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    ORR, sometimes I get down and start taking shots at them, but in this game, I just didn’t feel that way – I felt like they still had a chance, right down until they scored the tying goal!

    But 13 minutes left!? Jeez, give me a break!

  245. Now that Lundqvist has been “bailed out” again by the dynamite offense, worth mentioning that he got a piece of the Backstrom breakaway shot that hit iron when it was 2-1?

  246. LaTONYa from Miami on

    I make my share of negative comments through the game, but I NEVER, EVER give up on this team.


  247. Tiki May 7th, 2012 at 10:00 pm
    WOW!!!! They called a meaningless penalty with 21 seconds left. Whooooopie!!!!

    Love the comments on here. What a win!!

    mama’s mama is coming into town Wednesday…..ohhhhh, she will not be happy with me…..better be a win in 60!!!!

  250. Lloyd Braun on

    Thanks to all the people who just told me the Rangers were never out of it. You guys happen to have the winning numbers for last week’s Powerball handy?

  251. I love it that they stuck it to Pierre M, who also said that the 4 minute penalty was no big deal, until he was reminded by someone that OT could happen.

  252. Was here all night, was pretty embarrassed by some of the poster here so decided not to even get involved. Shame, shame, shame. What a game though. Doesnt surprise me one bit though. So glad Staal shot that puck. That’s what I want to see from DZ who has a miserable game. Richards, as ive said all year long, worth every penny. Clutch. 6.6!! Mickey, welcome “home”.

  253. For my friend Marc Staal —

    Dan Bern’s – Tiger Woods – aka I got big balls!

    I got big balls
    Big ole balls
    Big as grapefruits
    Big as pumpkins
    Yes sir, yes sir

    They swell to the size of small dogs
    My balls are as big as small dogs

    Sigh, yeah jpg, pretty sure….he may enjoy/like us, but I’ve had sad experience with him re: Devils…..To be honest, don’t even know how much a hockey fan he is, but his heart is the swamps of Jersey…..

  255. No need to rub it in, boys…I was very upset reading some of the comments too, I just put my iPad down, couldn’t read anymore.

    LW- not only that save, but many more, including most of the shots during the first period, albeit a few of them

  256. Lloyd Braun on

    looked to me like Callahan deflected the Caps’ second goal from where I was sitting and the replays they showed. those dopes on TV say what happened?

    Don’t tread on the blogs during these games.

    Still one more to win and the way it’s been going I really wouldn’t be surprised if the series goes 7… pray it doesn’t!!!

  260. Lloyd Braun on

    so like people are actually trying to claim they were sure the Rangers would tie the game with 6.6 seconds left

    come on, guys

  261. Zomg, Sally and I could be celebrating a series win together. In Cally’s hometown. Chills just thinking about it.

  262. haven’t read all the posts so i don’t know if i’m among
    what ORR!! and ilb
    are referring to
    i get steamed and i’m letting off steam
    there are elements of the team that just drive me flippin’ bonkers!!

    i griped about the power play
    said it needed to CHANGE
    and we scored 2 goals when we did CHANGE matters.
    hope we continue that.

  263. Hagelin has become as vital to this team as anyone else. And Staal is back, even before the goal. Good signs.

  264. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Lev, he’s probably the oldest reporter (by FAR!) on the beat – maybe it’s a professional courtesy?

  265. Lloyd Braun on


    look, it was a blind hope if you expected this team to tie the game. I’d be willing to bet a large sum that the Rangers have never tied a playoff game that late before. so, while you can type, “I REALLY HOPE THEY SCORE ONE HERE” as many times as you want, there’s not a chance in hell any of these so-called mega fans really believed a goal was coming. quite easy to play the “told you so” routine after the game ends.

  266. When do reporters always ask such long-winded questions? Say your question in 7 to 10 words was what I was taught.

  267. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    *LOVED* that Girardi hit on Green!!! OK, Ovie – so, you didn’t get suspended, but “this Bud’s for you”, “Captain”!

  268. Got to love the Garden. 21 sec to go and they are as loud as they can be….Good job tonight too. Wonder if Eric survived….

  269. I refuse to read up the comments but, seriously, how can you be such a quitter to start mailing it in during a non-elimination, one goal Game 5?

  270. What an honor to have been at MSG tonight to see one of the GREAT victories in Rangers history. The Caps were unreal. The amount of shot blocking and lane clogging they did was just beyond belief. They play EXACTLY like us and that is what is making them so tough for us. So hard to get shots through. ….

    Whoever said it above deserves credit for one of the all time GREAT lines I have ever seen here:


    This train ride home on Metro north would have been such a bummer… I am flying high and just loving this night..




    RANGERS IN 6!!!!

  271. Noah-auer-uccarello-ubinsky, 29 on

    I will learn my lesson and say that the Rangers have NO MOMENTUM after this.

    What a win, you guys.

    And honestly, as one that started getting depressed late in the third, let’s not attack people for feeling down. Let’s just enjoy one of the greatest comebacks we’ve seen in a long, long time!

    Will this be forever known as “The Reverse Drury Game”?

  272. Don’t think anyone has claimed that at all, Lloyd.

    My slant on it is that, while I understand and accept the frustrated venting (do it myself, just don’t usually commit it to print), what I find a bit tiresome is what seems to be the repeated contest to be the first to predict doom and to predict the biggest doom, which comes across (intended or otherwise) as almost preferring to be proved correct than actually accepting there might be chance of a tied game (for it always starts even before the Rangers go behind) ending in the Rangers’ favour.

    Even if the Rangers don’t score with 6.6 left, as would happen 999 times out of 1000, some of the quitting and bailing would still look stupid.

  273. Lloyd

    did i think that we were going to score the tying goal?
    not really
    based on the bad power plays from earlier in the game
    but i kept the game on
    and somewhere in the back
    of my hesitant, the sky is falling
    i thought that there might be a chance

    so there, i’m a negative s.o.b.
    but somewhere somehow i have some degree of Hope

  274. Lloyd Braun on

    I don’t think it’s at all unrealistic if fans didn’t expect the Rangers to win this game when they’d in all likelihood never come back to tie a game at that stage of a playoff game in their history. Indeed, most of the building was pretty disheartened toward the end. I can buy not wanting to write off the series, but anyone who claims they knew the Rangers would pull out tonight’s game is full of crap.

  275. Looks like Ryan Suter might be playing his last game in Nashville. Morris makes it 1-0

  276. Lloyd Braun on


    totally agreed. Rangers did not look particularly good in the third and no matter what the phony optimists here will claim, Lundqvist didn’t have a great game either. I’m pretty sure the power play didn’t generate a shot and I’m not sure the Rangers really had a really good scoring chance in this entire game (including the three goals they scored). there wasn’t much to suggest a last second comeback was in the cards.

  277. Lloyd, I think it’s been said a few times already, not a single person predicted they would score with 6.6 sec, or any other time at all. LW. Just explained it perfectly. Time to let it go, for everyone’s sake.

  278. I still cant believe Henny got bailed out!!! Our team fought back to save his aasen!!!!

  279. Gravy, Swedish Meatballs with Noodles and on

    Lloyd downplaying a win and finding everything negative? Business as usual. Rangers finding was to win? Business as usual.

  280. Is there not a middle ground between “I logically believe they will tie/win” and “I must quit and trash the players”?

  281. And I cant believe the referees gave us a meaningless power play, or so they thought, and we capitalized!!!!!

  282. I love how Staal’s dad said how bad Marc’s shot is. Fitting for him to get the game winner

  283. Lloyd:

    i’ll say this much about Hank.
    seeing replays do remind me that he made a lot of MAJOR saves during
    the game
    but i am still peeeeved at the 2 goals he let in
    particularly the one he saw all the way from just inside the blue line
    (need to see laich goal again because i have no idea why Hank was moving right)

  284. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    Lloyd, why do you always attempt to pee in our beer? Can’t you enjoy ANYTHING!? Seriously.

  285. Gravy, Swedish Meatballs with Noodles and on

    Holy carcillo. Hank was screened on both goals, and I’m pretty sure I saw a deflection off the D in front on the second. He also made a ton of stops, including odd man rushed when it was 2-1.

    Some fans just can’t enjoy a win.

  286. Lloyd Braun on

    hey uh, what part of, “unbelievable win. unbelievable season” suggests that I’m “downplaying” this win?

  287. Jimbo (Win It For TONY!) on

    >>>Any other team would have won this in regulation.

    And that, folks, is the Miami Pimp! ;-D

  288. Guuuuuuuuuuuys, it’s over and done with. They won, no matter how improbable it was. So stop arguing/nitpicking and just enjoy it as a victory snatched from the jaws of defeat.


  289. Fun story for you guys. Long read, but entertaining:

    So I’m at the game with my pops, and we’re feeling pretty down. We still have hope, but you know how it is. Anyway, with 2 minutes left, we decide to wait in the concourse and just watch it on the TVs. If the Rangers didn’t pull it off, we didn’t want to sit in traffic for hours. Would have made it so much worse, so by being in the concourse, we could bolt out and beat the traffic.

    So we’re standing in the concourse watching it on the TV and more and more people start leaving. I could tell my pops is getting anxious (he drove us both in and he HATES traffic) so we walk down the escalators, and I keep checking my phone, telling him to HOLD ON, HOLD ON!

    We reach the final exit and I said JUST WAIT. IT’S NOT OVER.

    But he was not hearing it.

    So we left, and as we reach the parking garage, we hear a rumble. Then the streets of New York EXPLODE. Car horns, people cheering, the works. “THEY TIED IT” I scream to him. So I say, “LETS GO ACROSS THE STREET, THERE ARE BARS ALL OVER LETS GO!”

    He goes, “Let’s leave the city first! We have 20 minutes, we’ll leave the city and find a bar in Hoboken or Secaucus.

    So we leave. We exit the Tunnel and we keep driving and we are finding NOTHING. Overtime starts on the radio. We keep driving and I see an Outback Steakhouse. I scream to him to pull in! We pull in. We can’t find parking and park in a security spot. We run into the EMPLOYEE BACK ENTRANCE of Outback Steakhouse.

    10 seconds after we run into the restaurant, we see the game on TV, and we see the game winning goal. We both scream so loud as the restaurant looks on in utter fear and confusion.

    Let’s. Go. Rangers.

  290. This Nsh-Phx games is very entertaining. I have a very early morning, but can’t seem to be able to turn the TV off.. Mike Smith looks unreal.

  291. as far as coyotes and preds

    i’d like to see radulov score the only preds goal or goals
    tonight but ending up being one less than what coyotes score

  292. Duker, you might want to re-post that on the new thread … though there’s probably another new one coming soon.

  293. And, I’m sure its been mentioned, but great job by MDZ making sure his shot made it through. Another block there is game over.
