–        Henrik Lundqvist on getting the shutout … “I mean, I’m really happy we won.  That means so much to me to win every game here and it’s so important to me and to the group.  But on Monday it’s not going to mean anything.  You have to start over and earn that respect again, and hopefully you say the same thing after that game.”

  1. did not. walked away from them. I’m sure it was because of the story about his father and his father’s big mouth.

  2. Braunschweiger on

    This is the tweet from May 17th

    Tom Gulitti ?@TGfireandice
    Then, Parise did 10 minutes of a media conference call today. He’s a guy who gets it win or lose.

    Today he didn’t talk to the media. His father did say he likes Torts, guess he likes his pressers too ;-)

  3. His dad probably should have waited for the stanley cup playoffs to end before commenting

  4. Czechthemout!!! on

    Jorek

    I would say about 35-40% Rangers fans. I will tell you this. We didn’t have much to cheer about for the first two periods because we played like dog doody. But we were certainly heard from in the third. My daughters both were hoarse after the game. That was cool. A lot of chanting by Ranger fans on the way out of the arena. Best one was “we own the rock” a lot of very happy fans. Everyone was high fiveing each other. A lot of cool memories for my kids on their first playoff game.

  5. that comment about “a guy who gets it win or lose” was yesterday or the day before … today he snubbed them.

    I have never condoned snubbing in my administration.

  6. Carp, the ever-brilliant Chico said that the snub was because there were other guys on the team that could say what he could say and that he didn’t want the stupid article about his dad’s comment’s distracting the team.

  7. Presumably Parise will get more credit for being unavailable than had he showed and given one word answers to questions he didn’t like, right?

  8. Czechthemout!!! on

    Daneyko wishes it was only 15%. I wll also tell you that so much of the noise from the fans there is so contrived it’s awfull. Nothing spontaneous at all from the stupid Devil fans. They even resorted to using the Navy personel at te game as a way to transition from honoring them to a cheer for the Devils. I found that disgusting. Another funny moment was when they showed Jon Bon Jovi at te game as if he was some Devil fan. Like 5 seconds after they showed him, his kids got up in their Rangers jersey’s so they immediately cut off the shot from the big screen.

  9. LOL, Czech!!

    Sadly, MSG has the stupid “now get up on your feet and…” that I heard playing today, and the “make some noise” chants emanating from the scoreboard. That stuff sucks but it goes on everywhere nowadays. It’s needed where the fans don’t get the game. At MSG, I think it actually stops people from cheering. You never know when that crapola is going to cut off a fan-started chant.

  10. Attention: if you’re handy with a scalpel or even a carving knife, the Flyers would like to speak to you.

  11. >>Daneyko wishes it was only 15%.

    He should have watched to see how many people jumped off their seats when the Rangers scored those three big goals. Rangers fans own The Pebble!

  12. Makes sense that there will be Ranger fans at the Rock. Not a big surprise. Is it funny? Yeah sure. Let’s move on to the Cup please.

  13. “THE CARP ADMINISTRATION”

    Can I be attorney general?

    Or do I just have to keep slinging soup?

  14. Gotta say these pbrs taste good. Marty can have his circus saves. Henrik can bring it home. Next game looms large

  15. onecupin72yearsandcounting on

    I wonder how many years ,I mean games , Prust will get.. for his elbow..

  16. bull dog line on

    at least 1, probably 2. enter John Scott. nah Bickel will move to forward.

  17. That Liam McHugh is such a jerk. In the middle of the game his tweets begin to infer a hearing with Shanny is coming

  18. who is Liam McHugh . . . . . I mean I think he is right Prust will probably be suspended for that hit

  19. Zuccarello may be ready to get in the lineup if Prust is suspended.

    Also, Chris Kreider will be the forward equivalent of Ryan McDonagh for years to come.

  20. if he gets more than 1 game, it is a joke because Hanzal got only 1 game for a very dangerous dirty boarding hit from behind on Brown that could have broken his neck.

  21. I say Prust gets a game, but deserves more. If he does get more can we please not have the bs comparisons. It was a cheapshot plain and simple. I agree that Bickel reenters the lineup and plays forward. Unless of course MZA is ready which is doubtful. Same for Duby.

  22. Joekuh - 6 more.....GBTaMP! on

    if hags got a suspension for his elbow, of course prust is getting one too. newbury for game 4?

  23. I am sorry. I disagree. Volchenkov wasn’t hurt. Isn’t that a key factor for Shenanigan’s decisions? I am surprised this is even being discussed as there have been so many other hits like this.

    Despite what DB said (“headhunting”), Volchenkov (btw, he was the guy that was hit), called it no big deal and said he thought he changed position or something like that. Really, I find it hard to believe.

  24. Here is a Debbies fan game thread comment today from the Hockey’s future boards:

    I really dont even know what im watching right now…where is the team that dominated the Philadelphia Flyers?

    ARE THESE CLOWNS SERIOUS???

    they are now playing a team with GREAT D-Men and a WORLD CLASS goalie!

  25. Paul in sunrise on

    I was hoping for the center ice stick salute at the end of this one by the rangers.

  26. ANF: That is a direct quote from the Devils game thread from the hockeys future board!

    If you want to put a smile on your face; go to adam rotters SNY Rangers blog and watch the Girardi goal and the Kreider goal.

    WATCH HOW MANY RANGERS FANS JUMP UP IN CELEBRATION AT MSG WEST!

    LOL!!!

  27. Thisyearsmodel on

    Don’t know if that was an intentional rope a dope strategy for the first 2 periods. The 3rd period looked like a different team out there.

  28. bull dog line on

    did not agree with the group here that felt Torts was overplaying some guys during the season. I have to admit though, the Rangers do seem a bit tired in this series. Hank has stolen 2 games.

  29. bull dog line on

    and that Kreider (practice only) contract looks great. maybe next season they will let him play in the games.

  30. Part of why I say Prust should be suspended is because if someone did that to a Ranger I would want them suspended. He was without a doubt aiming his elbow for the head.

  31. This team is so lucky. These no-talent clowns will fall off the precipice soon enough.

    Bush-league will rear its head come Monday.

  32. bull dog line on

    based on what they have been suspending guys for in the playoffs, Prust will get a game.

  33. liam mchugh is actually a guy i was very friendly with in college my first two years. he was a junior at univ of buffalo when i was freshman. he grew up in herricks and loved basketball football and he was a great soccer player. i ended up leaving my frat house but he was in the same one as me. he didnt know hockey from a hole in the wall.

  34. Chezchthemouth, geez I know you were there but can you get any more negative? You have been watching these guys all yr. Right?

  35. orr
    no head movements back then. he def knows his sports and real nice guy. could drink with anyone for such a small guy. he started with espn magazine i never thought he would make it to NBC

  36. In the Carp administration even though I’m a fairly new Bonehead I’d apply for the Secretary of Education spot

  37. Thisyearsmodel on

    BTW, loved the Let’s go bankrupt chant. Did you hear that one Carp?

  38. onecupin72yearsandcounting on

    Chico and Cangilosi looked like they were dying on the wrap up show..
    true homers.

  39. Nick Kypreos ?@RealKyper
    #SNPlayoffs Confirmed #Rangers Brandon Prust will be have a hearing tomorrow morning with #NHL regarding his elbow on #Devils Volchenkov

  40. boxcareddiehospodar on

    How about kavapuke’s hearing on the elbow to mcdonagh’s face???????

  41. I really wish Shanahan would come out and say “Look, we missed a few calls earlier in the playoffs but there will be zero tolerance going forward”. Would make it so much easier to ignore all of the “why Prust but not _______” complaints.

  42. boxcareddiehospodar on

    Is everyone serious about Prust getting a suspension?

    Was that shot worse than any of the other garbage in this series?

  43. Yes Box car because it was aimed at his head, he hit him with his elbow in the back of the head. . And like I said before if someone did that to a Ranger I would want them suspended.

  44. Of course it was worse. A flipped up, in no way incidental, elbow to the head. From behind. Clarkson does that to Staal and we’re all, rightfully, losing our minds.

  45. Hope we get this thing done come Wednesday night. I leave on the 31st to Israel, want to get at least 2 games in while im still here. What time would a finals game in LA start? 8pm Ny time?

  46. And I don’t think Prust is dirty. His entire job is to hit guys and rile things up and I can’t remember him taking a shot like this. A dirty play doesn’t make a dirty player, but it shouldn’t be ignored either.

  47. boxcareddiehospodar on

    Jorek,

    no devil has aimed for a ranger head?

    when parise ran over del zotto’s in the 3rd period that was not a head shot?

    Kovlapuke’s elbow to McDonagh’s face not a suspendable offense?

    This is hockey and there have been hits just as questionable as Prust’s and nothing has been done.

  48. I will admit that Prust got the elbow a bit high but if he gets a game for that I’m going to lose all respect for Shanny–which will really upset me; I like Shanny a lot.

    Let’s go Rangers. Remind the Devils why the NHL is going to take ownership of their pre-school franchise.

  49. Some hits have hit heads. No other hit was so obviously intended to hit the head. Do you really believe Prust flashed the elbow to get Volchenkov’s shoulder blade and it just slipped high? C’mon. If you’re unbiased you have more credibility later.

  50. Yeah . . .boxcare true . . here’s the thing . . . they don’t play for the team I root for. . . I mean as a kid I remember being told to mind my own business. . . well in sports the team I root for is my business. I don’t think Prust is a dirty player, like Mister said, I can’t think of a hit like this before. But it happened now and its not the way I want the Rangers to play. It’s not the hockey I want to watch. . . support . . . .root for. . . we are here talking about the game and more specifically the Rangers. Well in doing so we are gonna talk about Prust. The other team wants to play dirty and their fans don’t mind well thats them but its not me at all.

    I’m not going to play the comparison game. .. yeah I think the league is messed up and unfair at times. . . but if the Rangers commit a penalty or make a dirty hit then I have no problem with a fair punishment.

  51. boxcareddiehospodar on

    Mister D,

    Is Kovalpuke’s elbow to McDonagh’s face a suspendable hit?

  52. boxcareddiehospodar on

    Jorek,

    nice response.

    the key phrase is fair punishment.

    There has not been fair punishment this entire playoff series.

    That is why I am dead set against anything happening to Prust.

  53. The penalty he took? No. No more than McDonagh retaliating high was. Completely dissimilar plays.

  54. “That is why I am dead set against anything happening to Prust.”

    So what happens if Clarkson goes for another flying elbow, like he did against Dubinsky, but connects? Your precedent has been set at “because its been allowed before, it should keep being allowed”. Head shots should be called every single time. If one or two or ten get missed, it doesn’t mean the next one should get excused too.

  55. boxcareddiehospodar on

    Mister D,

    Was anything done to Clarkson even though he missed?

    Was there intent to injure?

    I bet if he connected no suspension from the nhl.

    Let’s stop saying to suspend every ranger when they create an infraction but let everyone else go.

    PS Volchenko deserves whatever he gets!!

  56. Clarkson wasn’t suspended, but he should have been. As dirty of a play as you can possibly make.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDbKYkpbZ-U

    Hit is at 0:50.

    And this is my point: Any player, Ranger or opponent, should be suspended for these types of hits whether or not you succeed in really blowing up someone’s brain.

  57. Boxcar the NHL is screwed up I won’t argue that . . . and in these playoffs they have been super screwed up. . . . .that doesn’t erase the fact that Prust hit him on purpose in the back of the head with his elbow . . .and if that had happened to a Ranger I would want that player suspended one game seems fair to me.

  58. boxcareddiehospodar on

    Mister D,

    agree with you.

    If the entire playoff series was run like that I would have no problem with suspending Prust.

    however the rangers have been on the short side of every decision by shanahan.

    Watch the hit kovlapuke’s does on McDonagh at about 11 minutes of the first period.

    Leaps and goes to plant an elbow in McDonaghs face.

    Call everything fair and I have no issue.

    Also how long is going to take the refs to realize the devils interfere on every cross ice pass to kovlapuke on the pp.

  59. boxcareddiehospodar on

    Jorek,

    agree 100%.

    If the playoffs were called fair then correct.

    However the playoffs have been lopsided and the rangers are on the short end of every call.

    the devils run blatant interference the entire game and it is allowed.

  60. Czechthemout!!! on

    Hedberg

    I am not being negative. And yes I watch the games. In fact, I watch all the games. I also try to be realistic in my opinion of what I watch. The fact of the matter is that they played like dog crap for almost two periods and if not for Hank and to a lesser extent McD, they would have been blown out by the end of the second. It funny, I am sitting in a section which was probably 2/3 Rangers fans and I hear everyone say the same thing about how awfull they played the first two periods. So I wasn’t alone in my option. You need to take those red white and blue glasses off every now and then. But it’s cool if you don’t. I get it. You can think what you like. Their is no requirement that says you need to be objective. And despite the fact that I post stuff you don’t want to read, I can assure you that I screamed guts out for them today because I am very hoarse right now.

  61. Czechthemout!!! on

    I don’t think Prust’s hit is ant worse than Clarkson’s. That sais, I bet Prust gets a game because that is just how things go for us with the NHL. Of course if Prust is James Neal or Shea Webber, he gets nothing.

  62. You know, when I first saw it, I thought (and still think) that Prust didn’t intend to do that. Volchenkov spun out of the hit and that was the result, and I think they both made comments to that effect.

    But, he still connected with an elbow to the back of the head, and he should be suspended.

  63. Ok, who’s the one that was quoting Independence Day recently?? Cause the movie’s on AMC right now.

  64. Doodie needs to check in with another of his brilliant prognostications. He had the series
    ending in 6 for NJ, with the Devils not losing another home game —- and even wrote a post-
    mortem on the season based on that scenario.

    Don’t get me wrong: It’s okay to be wrong. I make a habit of it. But it’s not okay to be so
    wrong so effing often while slagging others on this board for far less idiotic postings.

  65. “I don’t think Prust’s hit is ant worse than Clarkson’s.”

    I don’t either. I think that’s about as obvious as you can get with measured intent to injure, but he wasn’t punished and that’s stupid. That was closer to a 10 game hit than a 0 game hit.

  66. Man, if the Rangers could win the next two that would be so nice. Even if he does not score a single goal the entire playoffs–getting Dubi back will be a huge boost for this team. If Prust gets tagged for a game or two, who goes in? Bickle or Eminger as a forward? MZA (If he’s ready)?

    Also, is it just me or has Bruce Driver been invisible for the Devils?

  67. Czechthemout!!! on

    Rangers west

    JT Miller. Why not.mhe can’t do worse than Rupp. And I know he will play better than Eminger or Bickel at forward.

  68. When the hell did you want them to have a hearing? Monday morning? Jesus christ stop whining and take the rangers cap off and look at things objectively.

  69. The earlier the hearing the better anyways. Allows the team to know who will replace him and gets the player to practice with the team.

  70. leetchhalloffame on

    Lev – Just sayin’ equal or worse has been done to Ranger players in these playoffs and nothing has happened. See Neil & Ovechkin, to name just a couple. Eat some carcillo.

  71. So, I continue to be confused. In watching the replay, the hit was high, at the head, but it was not hard. I am sure Volchenkov felt the elbow or a high hit so he went down like a sack o’ potatoes…..

    However, from what we have seen all playoffs:

    1. did he leave his feet? no
    2. was he tracking him? no
    3. was it along the boards? no
    4. is he a repeat offender? if chris neal isn’t, he isn’t
    5. was the player injured? no

    If there is even a hint of consistency in the ‘rules’ and the ‘rulings’ in this mockery of a ‘wheel of justice’ league, there is no suspension. It blows me away that in the other conference final series, Phoenix did so many things in the 2nd game including:

    1. Doan — boarding (no suspension)
    2. Smith — hard slash to back of leg of Dustin Brown (no hearing/no penalty)
    3. Derek Morris — hard boarding (no suspension/hearing)
    4. Havlat — suspension, 1 game.

    Watch Prust’s hit in slow mo. It was high, at the head, definitely. Was it hard? no.

    I would love to hear Carps take.

  72. So, didn’t see from anyone else, but Mr. Carp said we would lose game 2. We di
    Mr. Carp said we would have a much better game in game 3. The implication was we would win. It wasn’t easy, but we did.

    Ok, Carp, what’s the call for game 4?

  73. Matty, it makes 0 difference how “hard” the hit was. Just like Giroux’s hit, he was targeting the head. Exactly the kind of thing the NHL said it’s trying to get rid of. All those hits you mentioned are not comparable to this. Neither is the Neil elbow.

  74. Dock Emerick is to hockey as Michael Kay is to baseball: embarrassing and unnecessary.

  75. 48.1 Illegal Check to the Head – A hit resulting in contact with an opponent’s head where the head is targeted and the principal point of contact is not permitted. However, in determining whether such a hit should have been permitted, the circumstances of the hit, including whether the opponent put himself in a vulnerable position immediately prior to or simultaneously with the hit or the head contact on an otherwise legal body check was avoidable, can be considered.

  76. I believe Carp did say it would be 2-2 after 4 and Game 5 would determine the winner of the series.

  77. It will be one game. If it’s anything more i now think it’s wrong. Based on the Giroux precedent it has to be one game and no one should have any problem with it if they take their Rangers cap off for a second.

  78. Ye that makes most sense Manny. Unless of course MZA or Duby can play. Doubtful. Bickel has more experience playing forward than Bickel so most likely it will be Eminger on D.

  79. it must kill dubi that he isn’t playing. I wonder how players feel about players that barely play getting the cup? I know they’re a key piece to the team – but there must be that moment where they’re like “UH, gee, THANKS FOR THOSE 3 MINS BIC”

    dubi would be killin it right now.

  80. It would probably kill the team if Avery got his name on the cup. Dubinsky on the other hand certainly not. He played all year for this team (not very effective on the scoresheet lol), but he’s as much a part of this team as anyone.

  81. Do you guys see Kreider as having the potential to be our Ovechkin(with more defense)? I mean, you can clearly see his explosiveness, puck possession prowess and finish. He has already proven in a short time to be more of a force than Gaborik, in terms of brute force and being a complete player. 40-50 goals anyone? Just a bit premature, heh.

  82. It’s been like 15 games. Lets relax a bit with comparing him to Ovechkin/Crosby/Malkin. He’s got a lot of work to do, especially on defense and away from the puck.

  83. That’s not to say he doesnt have the potential. He has certainly showed he has. He needs to work on his interview skills though!!

  84. Was lucky enough to find the game at a bar in Jerusalem despite the fact that the champions league final was on too.

    Question: who has been better giguere in 03 or hank in 12?

  85. I apologize Lev, I get a little excited sometimes(that’s what she said). But anyhoo, if the Kings weren’t nuking everything in their path, I’d probably say that we should definitely take home the cup this year, especially since Pittsburgh, Detroit and Philly are out. But their play has me flat out scared…Quick vs. Lundqvist would be sick, but perhaps that’s what’ll have to happen in order for Lundqvist to slay his playoff daemons. Then all the “Quick is better” asswipes would finally shut their mouths, even though I don’t see Quick’s name on the Hart or Vezina ballots, Prust sayin…

  86. No need to apologize to me 2leetch2!! Quick vs Lundqvist would be epic. If both are on their game, and after the year that both of them had why wouldnt they be, it will make for one hell of a series.

  87. oleo glad you got to see the game and hope you are enjoying birthright. Any idea what bar in Jerusalem you saw the game at? Im relocating to Israel for 3 months in 12 days and will be living near Jerusalem. Would love to watch the game with some Israelis rather than at home alone.

  88. Richards hit the post at a key time and almost got us a nice goal once again, aside from a little disappearing act lately, you can’t say enough about his clutchness this year. Unlike Bryzgalov(I score on myself in the biggest game of the year), I believe that Richie will tell you that he actually DOES get paid in the playoffs…

  89. High Desert Roberto on

    today was the start of an epic lundqvist shutout streak that will reach into game 2 of the finals

  90. In closing, Lev : Kreider has weak interview skills, bwahahahaha, which standards are you using ? Pray tell, Lev. Any suggestions ? Do you work for a PR firm? What do you suggest for Chris? A little more arrogance, perhaps a smattering of cockiness, or – let’s see – pointing out his statistics ? Did you notice, on a slim chance, some weak interviewer skills ? Well, do not answer any of the above questions, just go to Middle East and relax.

  91. Lawdy

    Where on earth would this team be without the magic goaltender?

    My word, he really turned this entire game around for them in that third period..some of those saves bordered on the miraculous, and gave his skaters the heart and guts to go forth and win decisively.

  92. @ JOREK : You seem to be obssessed with Mr.Prust and his actions on the ice, totally out of proportions with any other players on any team currently in action. I suspect, in your case, a “holier than thou” posture, i.e. “if a Ranger player were similarly victimized” etc. , aren’t you in fact a Devils fan posting here ?
