The non-aggression on checking the puck carrier is killing me. ESPECIALLY on the PK.
Rangers breakouts are an absolute joke. Watch a youtube video guys. Jesus.
I think Nash is injured, Evrock.
Del Zaster will never learn how to defend against a 2-on-1 properly.
Lundqvist on Capitals’ intense flurry the last three minutes of the game. “You just have to make up your mind: No more goals.”
I wish he made it up sooner!
Re-Post Your Comment
This is awesome: http://rangersmultimedia.com/gifs/hagelin_stepan_tictac_goal.gif
So what’s wrong with Nash?
I was at the game and if it was clear to me that his skating/effort sucked it was surely apparent to everyone in the Caps organization that he’s not 100% or even close.
If I recall, he got a maintenance day already in this series – so he’s hurt. Any chance we get some real journalistic insight into the obvious?
Yea, Nash is clearly injured.
Hey Carp, did you see my post a day or two ago asking you to look into putting a link to the next post when you put up new posts, at least in the ones with just under a billion posts? It would make things a lot easier for the mobile version, especially those like me using their phone.
You gotta be kiddin’ me with the New Post. This is like the Gong Show.
Or late night at the Apollo.
There really isn’t a new post though.
What we do have is OT in the Blues/Kings game. GO BLUES
The new post is a lie
Wonderful evening. All is well. Boyle played a solid game, huge in the face off circle.. Nice contributions tonight. Now hank steals one in DC and we take it from there
Yea. Well said, Is This….The team was great in the face off circle. Wow. Also won the Special Teams battle again.
There is no New Post. It’s a diversion. Back to your battle stations!
What the byfuglien is a sesame?
Did anyone see Anson Carter and his partner in anchorman crime talk about the Vezina Trophy and how Bob should win because he plays on a team that doesn’t have the same depth as the Rangers? Lmao. I think Bob should win regardless but depth? C’mon, you can think of a better reason than that.
You know what confused me? Why in the world was Clowe on the ice with :40 seconds left?
Beats me. Try and open it.
Josh made the post but Carp said new post I think there is some sort of conspiracy here (S)
I made curried chick peas (with onion, jalapeno and bay leaves) tonight and when I made my whole wheat cous cous to put it over I put sesame seeds in the cous cous. It was a huge improvement.
They must’ve thought he was a good candidate to knock a craps player off the puck. Other than that? I’ve got nothin’.
Didn’t even notice it was josh Thomson, 26
Evrock – you are correct, but our D is either not that good so they back off or are told never to be beat at the blue and they are not confident in doing so.
Torts said he likes how they bend but dont break…hmmm…
Very confused. Am I in old, new or current post?
Yea…I’ve got nothing. I might want some speed in that spot to get a puck and hit the open net.
I’m guessing he just said it cuz before my long post I prefaced it remarking on Carp putting up posts by the bushel after games. Plus I think the world revolves around me as well.
Brian Boyle won 11 of 16 faceoffs and Derick Brassard won eight of nine.
Why wouldn’t it, evrock?
Stranger, they’re just a cold spell away from that bending turning into breaking.
Good point Manny
looks like Torts got the ice times for centers right this time
step: 21 mins
Bros-hard: 18 mins
Richards: 15 mins
I don’t want poke checkers on the ice with .30 seconds left. Not that there’s anything wrong with poke checkers.
Yikes. Bad goal Elliot.
Blergh, Kings. That’s so last season….
That’s all that’s ever on the ice. Poke checkers.
Cool, Drax. Thanks.
Yup, Evrock. That was BAD. Especially in OT. Ouch.
Actually Clowe isn’t a poke checker when I think about it.
I’d Bill Patrick related to Dan Patrick?
Last year my 3 favorite teams all won their divisions. This year two of them barely made the postseason and the other was so bad they couldn’t even win the draft lottery with the best chance to do so.
this post is toast
Holy crap those last 10 minutes were gut-wrenching. Lundqvist was fighting the puck all night but (just barely) found a way to keep the puck out of the net when it mattered most. Just never can be easy for this team, can it
Was Patrick Swayze a descendent of St. Patrick? Actually, Bill Patrick is a pseudonym.
The last ten minutes here have been gut wrenching, too. Any moment, as you type, NEW POST will appear.
Excuse me, can I see your credentials before I allow you to check my poke?
is hat trick the third cousin of Patrick?
Is it just me or did Anson Carter look like he just came from a Tyler Perry casting call or maybe a Don Cherry lookalike contest?
How is the nicotine patch related?
tomb, that is too clever for a hockey blog. You have to send it to The Wall Street Journal. :)
that win has me in a good mood.
I just found out my TV speaks spanish. when did it have time to learn that?
I hate the pens but I like Vokoun, what do I do, Dear Abby?
you guys know who’s impressed me the most in this series?
Moore, at 22, is worth Gabby straight up. He and McD ain’t going nowhere for a long, long time.
I have been away from the blog for a few days. What is up with that video at the top of the page? It blocks out a lot of the wiggets. Is anybody else having the same problem? Carp indicated a new thread. Is there one?
Evrock, not sure I understand the suggestion. Drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thx
That’s a funny picture. I wasn’t originally overly impressed by Moore while everyone seemed to have been high on him. But I’ve definitely noticed his confidence growing and tonight was definitely his best in a Rangers uniform. The future looks bright with him in it.
Carp, do you mean what I said about links to the new posts? I’ll hit you up manana. T’anks.
Not to overstate it, but that one end to end rush by Moore was Leetch like!
I called Moore a borderline 6th defenseman when the trade was made. Now I’m seriously thinking he’s top 4 minimum.
Oh, and then there’s this guy:
We definitely will not know the true impact of the Gabby trade till at the very least the entirety of next season.
Where would this team be without Brassard, Moore, Dorsett (to replace Prust?) Eminger getting 22 minutes, Richards 21 minutes, frantic calls to Connecticut for a minor league center?
I just saw the torts presser on NHL Network. Did he call Carp, Carpy? He’s got himself a real hockey nickname. Maybe next time it’ll be Carper.
Time to walk the dognuts.
speaking of Brassard, dude has been huge
(slightly NSFW) http://img254.imageshack.us/img254/2102/brassz.jpg
Evrock said dognuts.
Dorsett played maybe 7 minutes, bro
Carp would get all up in Oates’ grill. He said the Rangers had momentum carried over from the last game.
Dorsett is next year’s Ash. Ten years younger, similar snarl. Wore the ‘A’ out West, bro.
so he’ll play 7 minutes a game and be hurt for half the season yahoo!
Please leave a message after the drone. Get many dates
Well that was quick. I didn’t want to take the dogs out because I didn’t want to miss a goal in the det/ana OT. Thanks Anaheim!
I wonder if Holtby’s wishing he never opened his mouth
Liam McHugh just called MSG the world’s most famous ice. Is it really that bad?
It’s bad, Evrock, and it always has been bad. This time of year it’s probably worse.
pretty sure Liam McHugh couldn’t find his couch in the living room
I like that one. Only problem is that the pic wasn’t from this series. Not even this year probably, from that jersey.
That was rhetorical Lloyd. lol
does it really matter, evrock
And our beloved Brian Boyle
one more for the Boyler crowd:
Not really, but I like to go for authenticity. hehe
You should make a gif of the gaffe.
In that video of Stepan’s goal, anyone else notice how Ovie is completely coasting? Not even trying a little bit to defend
