It’s Go Time! … Game 7: Rangers at Capitals


So, last “It’s Go Time!” of the season? Or just the second of three games in four nights?

The winner tonight takes on the Boston-Toronto Game 7 winner, probably starting Wednesday. It would be on the road if it’s the Rangers, right here in D.C. if it’s the Capitals.

By the way, told ya they’d win Game 6.

Game 7.caps
Rangers at Capitals.
Second Must Win of the season. Ya boys have won three of the last four games in this series, losing only on the fluky OT goal in Game 5. Probably doesn’t feel that way to most of you.

In case you’re one of those fans who actually, you know, works while you’re at work, here’s the latest: Marc Staal skated but will not play. Ryane Clowe and Darroll Powe (both with likely their second concussions of the season) didn’t even make the trip.

Looks like the same lineup, then. Henrik Lundqvist in goal (um, yeah) coming off two tremendous individual efforts.

Alex Ovechkin’s four-game point drought is the longest of his career, BTW.


Don’t forget to vote for the Three Rangers Stars on the left, and to follow me on Twitter: @RangersReport (I imagine Josh, 26, will be chiming in from his couch, too).

If ya boys win, we will try to cobble together a Live Chat before Game 1. If not, we will definitely do a post-mortem Live Chat in the next few days. That would be fun.

  1. Good luck everybody. Win, lose or draw, I love you guys, love this blog and love this team.

    LET’S GO RANGERS!!!!!!

  2. refs: Dan O’Rourke and Chris Rooney, coupla fine Italian kids.

    Rangers’ record with them: What’s the difference?

  3. Sinking Like An Evrock on

    I’m only worried about one thing with regard to this game but it affects a lot of what could happen. That’s the home crowd. You can’t tell me that the Ranger crowd last night didn’t help some of the calls along including the fact that the Craps didn’t have a single power play. The fans at the Garden in the last way also seemed to somehow will the Rangers to hold on to that lead. Of course I wasn’t there (according to Google Maps I was 1225 miles and 18 hours and 28 minutes away)
    I posted my thoughts and observations about the last game but not many people saw it because Carp had put up a new post (of course). At least it was the review of last game and not some more interviews in 2 or 3 posts (just playin’, Carp). I just figured if people read it they’d have some more things to look for in this game so I’m going to repost it after I add this one.

  4. Hope the Craps are still in whine mode…looking for payback on Dorsett and making early mistakes.

  5. Sinking Like An Evrock on

    REPOST (Sorry, forgot to preface that this was a rather long post):

    My Thoughts and Observations on Game 6:

    1. Matthew Perrault gets hurt and the refs blow the whistle while the Rangers have a 3 on 2. McGuire defended the refs decision but as far as I’m concerned that was a horrible decision. He wasn’t prone on the ice so the whistle should’ve been blown when the Craps had possession of the puck. Period.

    2. A lot of the Craps momentum wasn’t earned it was given to them by the Rangers. First of all after every unsuccessful power play (basically all of them…more on that later) the Craps gain some momentum from holding the Rangers off the board. Another way the Rangers give the Craps momentum is by backing off the point men and treating the Craps possession in our zone like it’s a pp. It doesn’t make any sense ever to treat even-strength like a pp especially when that team arguably has the best pp in the league.

    3. This team still has way too much trouble clearing the zone but this game the Rangers showed that they’re making progress They looked much better clearing the puck from in front of the net and keeping rebounds down. They usually have the bad habit of trying to corral the puck in front of Lundqvist but in this game they just walked the puck to the boards. That’s smart defense.

    4. Anybody else see the “Because It’s The Cup” commercial that featured a dub step remix of the banjo from Deliverance? As if hockey doesn’t have enough trouble just holding the spot of the 4th major sports league already.

    5. At the beginning of the 3rd a Craps offside wasn’t called until a Ranger player got hit by the offsides player and the ensuing faceoff was just outside the Rangers zone when it should’ve been deep in the Craps zone. There’s no way the linesman didn’t yell offside and/or directly tell the Craps player to get onside, that’s an intentional offside. I’ve seen a player get penalized for doing that.

    6. I know the Rangers stink on the pp but the Refs were pretty horrible in this one. Entirely inconsistent. They got a couple of Craps calls because they somehow only saw the Craps retaliation. In the 3rd Ribero was a couple strides from a 2 on 1 with Fehr and afterwards Fehr blatantly two-handed pushed Lundqvist in the face. He didn’t attempt to get out of the way or stop and he went out of his way to make that hit. Not only a non-call but the announcers didn’t even acknowledge it even when the replay was shown.

    7. Did they change the rule on what’s considered a penalty worthy of a double-minor call in this year’s playoffs? Green’s high stick on Dorsett should’ve been a double. Period. Not to mention the trip by ribero on his way to the bench.

    8. Not only did Richards not chip in offensively, but we finally got a one-timer after always settling the puck before shooting and who saved it….Holtby? Nope, it was Richards.

    9. Hagelin made a dipsy-doodle move and although his shot was weak it looked better than anything Nash has done in a looooong time. Although, in his defense, this was easily Nash’s best game…even if that’s not saying much.

    10. McGuire’s usually a moron but he said one thing tonight that was pretty funny even if he probably didn’t even realize it at the time. On the Green high-stick he said “(the Craps) keep saying ‘keep diving, keep diving”and Dorsett’s saying ‘how can I dive I’ve got blood coming out of my mouth. What kind of pool do you think I’m diving in?”

    11a. The PP. Although it’s all been said before it still never changes. If the player with the puck skates near you…MOVE! Stop bunching up on the boards. The puck was cleared numerous times because of it. STOP PLAYING 3 MEN HIGH ON THE BLUELINE! GET SOMEONE IN FRONT AND SCREEN THE DAMN GOALIE. I haven’t touted Avery in a really long time, but he was the last Ranger player that spent almost the entire time he was out on the pp parked In front of the goalie. Just ask Fatso how much goalies live that.

    11b. The usual McGuire: “John Tortorella’s gotta be just perplexed why there’s just so much ineptness on this power play. It’s just a bizarre thing.” Give me a break. The Rangers power play has looked exactly the same as the first game of the season. Either they’re not listening to Tortorella or they are and they’re too afraid to play another way. Either way Torts is involved with the “ineptness” of the pp. The only people perplexed are the fans.

    12. The Rangers didn’t make Holtby look amazing this game. If it wasn’t for him we would’ve ran away with this one. On the other end the Rangers finally won a game with Lundqvist standing on his head. It’s about time.

  6. me, too, oleo. Actually a nice guy, but a terrible, overmatched ref who always got big games. Like Terry Gregson.

  7. Maple Leaf Square is really, really cool. How does Canada not have more hockey teams!?

    @MapleLeafs: Check out the reaction from Maple Leaf Square when Cody Franson tied the game #TMLtalk

  8. Anson Carter would like to see Ovechkin break out tonight. What a freegin loser.

  9. i love u all too. win or lose, i will be here rockin and rollin with all of you.

    Dirk: Jack, I was thinking about my name, y’know?
    Jack Horner: Yeah?
    Dirk: I was wondering if you had any ideas.
    Jack Horner: I’ve got a few, but you tell me
    Dirk: Well, my idea was, y’know, I want a name I want it so it can cut glass, y’know, razor sharp.
    Jack Horner: Tell me.
    Dirk: When I close my eyes, I see this thing, a sign, I see this name in bright blue neon lights with a purple outline. And this name is so bright and so sharp that the sign – it just blows up because the name is so powerful… It says, “Dirk Diggler.”

  10. chris rooney and dan o rourke worekd game 3 and game 7 last years vs caps

    rangers 2-0.

    good omen

    that said i am going to puke

  11. Sinking Like An Evrock on

    Not quite as big as I was hoping for. Hopefully I won’t have a lot of time to learn some html before the next Rangers game.

  12. Evrock, Based on the length of your fine posts I’m a little concerned about breaking bread with you.

    I like to order my own lunch!

    Carp, the picture, call home or where ever. I had a vision!

  13. Vibin Eric. Mrs. Manny just asked me to please not puke and then said to use the toilet if I need to puke.

  14. BroadwayBlueshirt11 on

    Let’s do this! Been on edge since i woke up… LET’S GO RANGERS!!!

  15. What’s the chances they get us a few goals early here to let is coast through this one???

  16. Stranger Nation on

    Thought line of Pie-hat, Boyle, Dorset played well and kept Craps top line stuck in their own zone playing D.

    Prediction -Nash has strained Right Groin. Watch end of shifts and in 3rd Period – can barely push off right skate

  17. Sorry guys, but this team is cooked like a hot potato.

    These two-bit clowns are going to stink-up the joint like you’ve never seen.

    Caps 9-0, Ovech-trick.

  18. this one goes out to my buddies lestat and louis(eddie n cooz)
    ” we can make this thing better, we can always be better! i’ll keep tryin if u keep tryin! “(does a roundhouse kick to the air and high fivin chest rockwell)

  19. how bout we all dedicate this ‘go time’ to brandon prust. we all know we wouldve swept this series if darth sather wouldve kept him here

  20. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" Game 7 Heaven!!!"...says Greg L. on


    Internet , Cable , Phone all out all day…Cable company is screwed BUT ….BAM 6pm it is WORKING!!!!!!



    Lets gog ogg og go gogogog!!!


  21. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" Game 7 Heaven!!!"...says Greg L. on

    I was soooooooo mad 5 minutes ago!!!!




    HEYYYY mommaa , Pappaa , Mikey in ia ….everyone!!!!


  22. *Staal Wart* on

    how these players can do this after they did that last night is just unbelievable.

  23. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" Game 7 Heaven!!!"...says Greg L. on

    I can’t believe Nash is ALWAYS falling down!!! GET UP!!!

  24. caps look very dangerous. gotta cash in on oppurtunities rangers. we have the better goalie. lets prove it tonight!

  25. I never played ice hockey so not too familiar with the equipment. Isnt the equipment certified by nhl as acceptable or not? And how ovechkin can tie down his jersey with the car seat?

  26. Why do they have to focus on the biggest asshats in the NHL Game Center ad?

  27. Norm Merton on

    Ovechkin out of control, refs doing nothing. He won’t stop until they do. Preposterous.

  28. OK, for my birthday all I want is to take Chicken’s car seat and shave his hartnelling face with it.

  29. >>engblom’s a frakkin dweeb

    Tell me about it! The guy tries to explain everything; he tries too hard to sound smart.

  30. I haven’t really seen a problem with either hit from Ovechkin. I really think he hit McBust from the side, thus the cut on the side of the head.

  31. Ovechkin was already called for his 1 minor of the series when he nearly killed Stepan…dirty piece of crap…Don’t hold your breath on the next one…

  32. Czechthemout!!! on

    Classic hit from behind yet no call on Ovechkin.

    We are getting pounded out there. We need to answer.

  33. Caps pounding our D hoping to win a war of attrition. … Not so much.

  34. Someone please unload a hit on Ovie. He deserves it even more now that he messed with McD! Weird thing is with all of Ovie’s über padding he just skates away. No conscience or after effects it seems…


  35. An absolute DEL ZASTER leads to an odd man rush that leads to an Asham goal. Great terrible play del Zaster



  37. Norm Merton on

    Asham with one huge goal after another. Mystified that he’s stuck at 4 minutes a game, but whatever works!

  38. Seriously, that Del Zaster play going way too deep without support was awful. Really worked out in the end.

  39. Dear Hank,

    I know it must get tiring always having to stand on your head, but for all that is good in the world, stand there tall tonight my friend!!!!!!!


  40. Kreider and Del Zaster completely blowing it leads to a goal. IS that some odd kind of lesson for us?

  41. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" Game 7 Heaven!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Seems like Brassard and Zucco are on a diferent level then Nash? Is Nash really that hurt or outta shape…

  42. this is like a continous pp for the caps. wow. the caps are on another level right now. we need to get the puck in their end for awhile. just to give hank a rest. jesus. at least i’m innebriated

  43. Amen, eric. Very crucial to contain the Caps for the last few minutes here. Need to keep a lead and kill momentum (in game).

  44. Norm Merton on

    Which will Torto respond to, the big Kreider mistake in zone or the big assist at the other end? Either way, more Asham please. More goals per minute than any Ranger.

  45. Why is Asham a clown? Because you didnt like him when he was on the other 4 Atlantic teams? Same reason you didnt like Haley last year? Asham has top 5 quality shot on the team.

  46. Sioux-per-man 11.0 on

    Manny How about that drop pass by Kreider. Using his speed creating space for Asham?

    We need more of this!!!!

  47. Bye stuart. Guys, if your comment doesn’t go up because of a blocked word, figure it out and don’t try to use that word again. Not that complicated.

  48. Manny, yup. Callahan has done that a lot recently as well. And Holtby did it as well. It’s really disgusting. Oh and Dorsett in like Game 3.

  49. Ovechkin circles like a shark, disregarding all but the opportunity to paste our DMen.

  50. Norm Merton on

    At least three great chances for Green that period, none in. Fate with the Rangers?

  51. What the byfuglien Carp? I don’t hartnelling get…why can’t folks figure out we run clean hartnelling shop here. Such bullcarcillo !!!

  52. memo to danny g drive the puck out you putz.

    geez i might not make it to 3rd period

  53. Nothing worse than having a lead and then hitting two consecutive tee shots in the water…

  54. Ovechkin circles like a shark waiting to move in for the kill, disregarding all rules, seeking out McDonugh with every turn, while refs sheepishly allow his wilding to continue unfettered.

  55. Sioux-per-man 11.0 on

    Carp did we get outplayed this period? But win it on the scoreboard?

    Caps are more physical than the Rangers.

  56. Gregm_oldsection403 on

    The news can’t be good with Staal. If he can’t see well enough, he can’t play. Too dangerous.

  57. I will give him credit, LW. We have our own Ribeiro in Brassard. Centerman. Underachieves. Dives. Whines. Primadonna, etc.

  58. Cross Check @ 8:51.. hopefully yes, while on the handshake line, as we’re wishing him a nice summer in Russia.

  59. jagrforgovernor on

    in the words of Staalwart:

    “I.N.S.A.N.E.” first period.

    Can’t believe Assman is outscoring Noash.


  60. RangerSwegian on

    Ok. Would be nice to see some of that forechecking from last night after the ice-bag break.

  61. Gravy, Just Gravy on

    Great 1st period. Weathered the storm and scored a goal. A break this PP got split up (I hope). Is Ovechkin more teflon than Neil?

  62. The Kreider still channeling Meriwether Lewis in seeking the Northwest Passage.

  63. Kenny Albert was saying that Hank told him at practice that Asham has one of the best shots on the team…

  64. kreider has exactly same amount of points as nash. in his 15 seconds of ice time this series. wake up nash!!

  65. Manny

    I will give him credit, LW. We have our own Ribeiro in Brassard. Centerman. Underachieves. Dives. Whines. Primadonna, etc.
    May 13th, 2013 at 8:54 PM

    serious comment? Because Callahan whines to the refs as much as anyone. When did Brassard whine? Oh and Brassard’s been the 2nd best player after Henrik.

  66. Norm Merton on

    42 seconds to kill — could be huge now that we know only the painfully obvious will be called. Can’t get over how dumb that was by Asham.

  67. Good play by Kreider on the goal still, but why didn’t he drive the net after making the drop pass? He curled off towards nowhere in particular.

  68. Sioux-per-man 11.0 on

    1’st 20 mins Ranger on track with 1 goal.

    Hank on track with shutout!!!

    Carp keeping us all “in the fold”!!!

    So far so GOOD!!!

    Eric give me some love 1.0!!!

  69. LMAO at that tweet about the Bruins plane…was it an upper or lower fuselage injury….brilliant!

  70. Yep absolutely Holtby has to stop that. It’s a great shot which Asham has used several times but it was from way outside. If that was Hank Id be in tears. Not a traditional soft goal but one that has to be stopped

  71. Norm Merton on

    Nice period by Richards — saved a goal, got a free plus one from Asham. Looking good with low minutes.

  72. It was insane. I guess if Pimp was describing it the Rangers would be


  73. Im notva fashionista or snything but please What’s up with duguay always wearing red? At least wear some other flamboyant outfit of any other color just not craps red!

  74. Eddie, if you are there. What did Maloney say about the hit on McD by Ovechkin???

  75. Norm Merton on

    Ovi may get suspended for that hit on McD regardless of the refs trying to set the let-it-rip tone. That was awful.

  76. Cross Check Charlie on

    Rangers have to quit just dumping the puck out of the zone to center as the first option. More than once a player had room to carry the puck out and instead dumped it out and gave possession to the Caps.

  77. Why no coconuts on the announcers, studio analysts to call the Ovie hit what it is, viscous, dirty, attempt to injure.

  78. Did you see that coach Kaszynski, I mean, Keenan took a job in Russia. How will MSG Network make up for the loss of all that superb analysis?

  79. Too bad leech and Maloney couldn’t take over the broadcast … They get to the point. Joe Sam and the rest need to be tuned out

  80. Norm Merton on

    I remember Bob Nevin scoring a big one against the Leaves in the playoffs. Wonder if that memory is accurate…

  81. ORR, one can only hope….

    Come on Carp, Toronto’s not that far away, a grand city, and a new experience for you? Plus….Sally is only two hours away!

  82. Eric, if Caps lose tonight, Ovie may get suspended. If they advance, probably not.

  83. Blogmama was it too much about duguay’s outfit? Usually I find them mildly entertaining. Not so much lately

  84. ava- one time i wore a red shirt at a bar on long island when the yankees blew a 3-0 series lead to the red sox and got hassled by 2 off duty nyc cops all night! me and my friend proceeded to have them come outside and setle it. proceeded to whoop their asens, and then told them, were bloods piggies!! true story.

  85. MDZ!!!

    Ava, I go back and forth with him. On the one hand, I admire his ability to take the carcillo he gets and say WTB…on the other hand, sometimes it’s just ridiculous….

  86. Charging and boarding removed from the rule book for tonight’s game, as per Buttman.

  87. Great play by Pyatt to keep in, great shot by Dorsett, great pass by Moore to take Fehr out of the play and GREAT positioning by Eyeliner Taylor Pyatt!

  88. jagrforgovernor on

    lol@cap arena music after ranger goals.

    Sounds like story time at the library.

  89. del zasterrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    lets goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  90. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" Game 7 Heaven!!!"...says Greg L. on


    PURE DOMINATION baby!!!!!

  91. Norm Merton on

    Brassard! Just when it looked like nobody could pass through the stunned Caps pylons. The killer instinct!

  92. Wow. 3-0! can brethe a little now.

    @Grabby. Great story Glad you whooped some assen. It used to be red socks logo merchandise would get a Real NY reaction… It is a friendlier city now…

  93. Another point where I screamed “SHOOT DEL ZASTER YOU CANNOT GET TRAPPED DEEP AGAIN!”

  94. easy with this richy asham kreider line right now.

    them defending is a nightmare

  95. Another stupid Richards drop pass leaving Kreider to play defense. GET THE PUCK DEEP BUCKY

  96. Kenny Albert Rules! on

    Love it Carp.

    now Del Zaster? Is this the apocalypse?

    Great line!!

  97. Olga Folkyerself on

    What in Holy Hell?
    Rangers ahead 3-0
    Leafs ahead 4-2
    Lions laying down with sheep

  98. And the Maple Leaves beating Boston in Boston, coming back from down 3-1. Kessel with 4 goals and 2 assists in the series. Seguin with zero points. Burke is probably taking all of the credit,

  99. jagrforgovernor just got tasered. keep it up, jackwagons. You really want to be flushed in a Game 7?

  100. Sioux-per-man 13.0 on

    Thank You Thank You Thank You!

    Win by 3, preserve the shut out for Hank.

    Role 4 lines. Watch Kreider and Nash get a goal!!!

  101. Matty"Monster Nash"Boy on

    Nash must have gotten a cortisone shot. He’s looking a bit like what we saw earlier in the season.

  102. Sioux-per-man 13.0 on

    Doodie if you’re out there buddy. I want 3.0 or you’re not a Ranger Fan.

    C’Mon Man!

  103. It is too too sweet that all my “favorite” teams are getting beat in game 7s at home

  104. Popping in to see if this place was still here after goals from asham, pyatt, and the del zaster…. Feels like the apocalypse

  105. Caps have been diving since this one started… Disgraceful… Hockey gods don’t like that stuff

  106. Is This Real? on

    easy Doodie Rangers have been known to give up 3 goal leads, you should know better than any of us

  107. Sioux-per-man 13.0 on

    Zucc the little man is going to get a goal playing loose and fast :)

  108. Nash is playing fine … don’t know why he loses his balance so much, and obviously he has a hand/wrist issue.

  109. I think it’s pretty obvious that the caps have no legs tonight. This back to back is huge for us

  110. Carp, he keeps doing this stupid spin/back to the goal move and has been for the past few games. Last I checked, it’s damn near impossible to score with your back to the goal. You think he’s just trying to protect the wrist?

  111. Sioux-per-man 13.0 on

    Frattin > Boston

    The difference.

    The top Fighting Sioux player 2 years ago, plays for the Leafs.

  112. Wish they could slow it down but when they try to be slow in getting out of their zone the rangers usually lose e puck… Then bad things happen.

  113. Gravy, Just Gravy on

    Holtby letting pucks squeeze through him on a regular basis. Hank has been a solid wall.

  114. That was a hell of a defensive play by Boyle who looks like he’s going to get jumped again.

  115. I think kessel’s lack of heart is the reason why the leaves gave up two in the last two minutes

  116. Norm Merton on

    Rangers need to hold on and for Leaves to steal this one in OT. Reimer is destroyed.

  117. Sioux-per-man 13.0 on

    Manny Hags makes every line better.

    I’m thinking he’s out there to spark Richards.

  118. Gravy, Just Gravy on

    This Boyle-Pyatt-Dorsett line doing a great 2011-12 Rangers impersonation.

  119. Admiral Akbar on

    They have blown 3-0 leads to the Craps in the playoffs before.

    I don’t see it happening tonight, however.

  120. Norm Merton on

    Really impressed by Dorsett tonight. Pulling up a bit on his checks but finishing them, staying out of the box. Great credit to Torto.

  121. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" Game 7 Heaven!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Solid period , too bad Toronto can’t say the same …CRAZY GAME IN BOSTON!! I’d thought they stuck a fork in them , guess not.

    Our team…Hank hates to let in goals.

  122. Gravy, Just Gravy on

    I’m gonna qualify this by saying a Caps goal will freak everyone out, but after all the 1 goal games, who’d have thought game 7 would have been the least heart-attack inducing to watch (so far)?

  123. So far so good. We are winning and my heart is getting a real workout. We need a solid 20 of penalty free hockey! Discipline boys!

  124. Seriously has there even been back to back shutouts in Games 6 and 7?

    Also Dorsett quickly making good on his reputation of being fan favorite

  125. Yea. Dorsett is quickly becoming a fan favorite (as we said when we got him in that trade everybody but a few of us hated).

  126. Sioux-per-man 13.0 on

    Dood’s/Manny/Boneheads defense wins Championships!

    No Penalties.

    Defend the Shutout!

    Hank Deserves It!!!

  127. “Took Dorsett a little time, but he’s good.”

    Yup, he’s coming around…very likeable

  128. Gravy, Just Gravy on

    Who hated that trade Manny? I think we were all saying what a stroke of genius it was.

  129. Admiral Akbar on

    Manny – I actually liked the Gaborik trade when it happened. And I like Gaborik. I though the Rangers got some depth. I had no idea it would be this much depth!

  130. I don’t know what’s more shocking, us being up 3-0 after two or Toronto blowing a 3 goal lead in what 7 minutes.

    The Leaves are such a perfect matchup for us too. Gotta take of business here first of course

  131. Kudos to the second and third line players for giving us the lead. Nash is hurting, just watch him skate. No power at all to this ultimate power forward. He also seems to fall down from time to time without anyone hitting him. My guess is a groin issue. But he is gutting it out.

  132. Admiral – I liked the trade a lot. I thought it was a really good move. Definitely solved our issues and got some real chips, Love Moore, Love Dorsett.

  133. Guys a little help please besides Lundqvist who is nominated for vezina this yr?

  134. Gravy, Just Gravy on

    I won’t say I hated it, but I didn’t understand it. I didn’t really know much about the three dudes we got back. Now, I understand it.

  135. Survive with first five minutes without conceding, then on to the next five, and so on…

  136. John Moore was a diamond in the rough. Skating ability of McBust and offensive potential of Del Zaster.

  137. Matty"Monster Nash"Boy on

    Guys, I just hit the trifecta!! Asham, Delzotto, and Pyatt!!

    It paid $589,023.23 to win!!!!

  138. Sioux-per-man 13.0 on

    Manny – Love Brassard!!!

    Don’t forget he’s our point leader in the Playoffs!!!

  139. Sather has been looking at Brassard for years. They always liked him and I’m sure Moore was high on their draft board, given how much they value skating

  140. Rob in Beantown on

    Next goal is huge. Holtby looks like he’ll give up more if we keep shooting

  141. Sioux-per-man 13.0 on

    Papa HaHaHa who’s Latona? She was a troll!

    Not a real ranger fan!

  142. Matty"Monster Nash"Boy on

    I didn’t like the trade, Manny. And I was wrong. I am happy to admit it!!

  143. Norm Merton on

    Hated it, but so far so good. All three looking good at key times, looks as though they may keep it up.

  144. I suggest you go back to the thread when they made that trade, Gravy. Slats was pretty much on top of the WBM (c).

  145. I am withholding judgment on Brassard until the doldrums of a regular season. Want to see how his attitude holds up.

    But right now it’s all about HOLDING THIS LEAD

  146. Matty"Monster Nash"Boy on

    It would be really cool if Toronto won. That would totally destroy the B’s for years, getting this close.

  147. Rob in Beantown on

    Sather is a genius. Rangers are 10x better with the new guys than with Gaborik

  148. Cross Check Charlie on

    Don’t go into a shell to early and for Pete’s sake stay out of the penalty box.

  149. Important to note that NOTHING has been sorted out in the long run with the trade. I could still be wrong and WBM could still be right.

  150. I am with Manny on Brass. Withhold judgement. Gotta see what he can do over 80 games and playoffs. But, still an impressive last few months. Vibin’.

  151. Sioux-per-man 13.0 on

    Dood’s the sum of the parts are more to this TEAM! Than the sparkle of the star. The trade was win/win for both teams.

  152. leafs too much speed and great pp

    bruins big and physical playoff tested

    take your pick



  153. Matty"Monster Nash"Boy on

    If you want to see the import of having a booming point shot, just watch what the B’s do because of Chara’s shot. It’d be nice to have anyone that could shoot like that.

    Next year.

  154. Gravy, Just Gravy on

    Have to be realistic…even if they hold on here, not sure how far they can go if Nash is truly hurt. Can’t ask Hank for a shutout every night.

  155. you know what I like? Hank is not fooling around, playing with the puck. He catches iy: he keeps it. Team is not great on faceoffs, but at least the coach can choose his faceoff man. And they aren’t scrambling around in their own zone becasue they cannot play the puck after Hank keeps it alive.

  156. If the Caps really want to change the *momentum* of this game, they need to put the Rangers on the PP quickly and often.

  157. I have too much Rangers stuff going on and game…..someone tell me Boston is out?

  158. Matty"Monster Nash"Boy on

    You tell ’em Slatsko!! He was probably fishing when Mess and Gord took over his desk and decided to clean up some of his many mistakes. “Glen, here’s what you’re doing”.



  160. Ovie looks like a snorting bull who got rebuffed by the cow….

    Cally!!!!! game over! Craps season over!

  161. Sioux-per-man 13.0 on


    Boneheads we have struck Alaska GOLD!!!!

    Doodie at 10.0

  162. Sioux-per-man 13.0 on

    Manny – so much easier on the heart :)

    I’m not going to lie, I like these types of games so much better than the heart attacks!!!

  163. lets get through this and worry about boston tom

    prob open wednesday no arena issues

  164. Matty"Monster Nash"Boy on

    Hey, for Toronto, this was a great learning experience. But, it must absolutely suck.

  165. Carp, sorry for joining late but I’m 7 pages deep in a term paper at the moment. I’m in utter disbelief here. Is this not the most complete game they’ve played since ’12? Granted Holtby has a big part in helping the offense look this good.

  166. Very very respectful handshake line there in Boston. More even than usual. A little too much love for Phaneuf but it was a great series. Lucic almost tapped him in the bickels instead of on the chest.

  167. Wich do not need birch to keep the team together Joe! They were doing just fine without

  168. Admiral Akbar on

    Craps have mailed it in. Jackwagons.

    Car seat should be more concerned with scoring than hitting.

    Protect the shutout for Hank!

  169. Gregm_oldsection403 on

    Is it just my connection, or is this site suddenly really slow (refresh takes forever)????

  170. Admiral Akbar on

    I love those craps with their hangin heads!


    Anyone hear from the mothman?

  171. This next series is going to be the death of me….I shake my fist at you you stupid stupid Leaves!

  172. Is This Real? on

    yeah it’s a good night. hopefully mrs. is this real will feel like expressing her love orally

  173. Matty"Monster Nash"Boy on

    ANybody in their wildest dreams think we win 5-0 tonight? Stand up and be accounted for!

    Not I.

  174. Olga Folkyerself on

    Anyone hear from the mothman?

    He’s outside talking his daughter off the ledge.

  175. Kreider .hitting like he wants to play in the Boston series in front off the home town.

  176. Gregm_oldsection403 on

    Carp, you probably noticed this already, but the site is super slow. I think we broke it. It’s like Ulf slow.


  178. Ovechkin decides to start serving his suspension time during the third period!

  179. He doesn’t do it often enough but Kreider delivers the most thunderous hits on the rangers. Not this year but he eventually will be a very complete player.

  180. This would have been a perfect night if the Leaves hadn’t fallen off the tree…

  181. BroadwayBlueshirt11 on

    Going to be a fun day at work later this week when I watch the “Rock the Red” banners come down…

  182. How bad is Clowes’s injury? Another concussion? Any Chance he gets resigned?

  183. #1 Lundqvist
    #2 Del Zotto
    #3 Nash

    Brassard also great. Once again, go up and down the line-up, can’t find anyone who didn’t make an important contribution.

  184. Admiral Akbar on

    Salmon Joe: “maybe they get Powe back next series, what a lift that will be.”

  185. No Goal, but best PP of the series! check jaspers rink the caps board. Caps fans are suicidal! To the victor go the spoils!

  186. Anyone know when Was the last time we beat an original 6 team in a playoff round????

  187. If I paid a small fortune to see this game, i’d stay till the handshakes regardless of who I was rooting for.

  188. There will be talk of Clowe and Staal, but who goes out from this good, balanced line-up? Asham? Eminger? Kreider? Nice problems now.

  189. I love you guys!

    Congrats everybody. CELEBRATE LIKE CRAZY.


  190. Love the Backstrom commercial post loss.

    Richards 4-0 in Game 7’s.

    Nash 4-7 in Playoff games.

  191. Sioux-per-man 13.0 on

    Manny – I’m not going to lie. Mama wanted me to shave my beard. She went to bed at the 30 minute mark.Ha.

    How could the same woman put me in MSG TWICE, and want me to shave my beard.


  192. >>Anyone know when Was the last time we beat an original 6 team in a
    >>playoff round????

    Montreal, circa 1996?

  193. Mothman’s wings were pulled off and he’s now being fried under a magnifying glass….

  194. You have to be proud of this group. I had my doubts during the season. But, they have certainly shown us what they are made of in this series…

    Love Torts!!

  195. Stranger Nation on

    Love that Dorsett – really banged and controlled puck in zone, better than Judas Prust

  196. Really impressed with what they were able to do after going down 2-0. Back to back shutouts to clinch a series. Fantastic.

  197. Matty"Monster Nash"Boy on

    Congratulations to everyone here in this room. You guys are all great fans and deserve an unexpected lopsided 7th game away victory.

    Good for the team we all love. A very complete game. Sixty minutes of hockey. Nice time of year to do it!!!!

    LGR!! LGR!!! LGR!!!


  199. Will be interesting to see how the coach with the grinding, defensive style who played his top D-men into the ground to get through a seven game series fares against Tortorella and the Rangers.

  200. My favorite stat so far: only two Rangers +0 for the game, McD and Girardi, who were great on D. Perfect.

  201. Who all said we would lose? Hahahahahhahhahaaaaaaaa

    Farging Leaves…..but that’s gotta hurt

  202. had rangers in 7, check, wings in 7, check, hawks in 5, check, Leafs screwed me big time, had them in 7, blew a 4-1 lead with 6 minutes left, pathetic, Chicago cubs of hockey.

  203. Somebody (McDonagh, Girardi, Callahan, Richards) better take Brassard aside and tell him we don’t dive here as a New York Ranger. Have to stop that garbage.

  204. Matty"Monster Nash"Boy on

    Hank singlehandedly WILLED this series to change directions. It’s only a quarter final round, but man, you have to give him so much credit. Losing the first two games away. Him giving up one, if not two goals in game 2 that were questionable. Then he puts on his game face, and these last 4 games have been just sensational.

    He is called The King.

  205. Stranger Nation on

    Nanny – you got to get off your man-hate for Bros-hard/Brassballs.
    Richards is going to tell him? I would laugh in the stiff’s face and rip the A off his chest

  206. Evening all,

    Yep. Another game where they absolutely quit on the coach.

    Congratulations to the Rangers for a great comeback. First-ever Game 7 win on the road.

    And how ’bout a standing Ovechkin for #8, who registered a measly one goal in seven games. Outscored by Arron Asham. Outplayed by McMonster.

    Back to back blankings for The King.

    And just the other day, Mad Dog Russo said LQ is “slightly overrated.” Not so much.

  207. Onecupin73yearsandcounting on

    Ovetchkin’s hits backfired… now he can practice his hole in one with his gal pal

  208. Credit to Ovi — one of those hits was too much, and lucky McD is OK, but 13 hits! At least the guy tried to lead. Looked like a lot of respect for him in the handshakes, can understand why his peers picked him in the final 3. Hate him, though.

  209. Stranger Nation on

    Really like the boyle/dorset/pie-hat line as a true playoff banger line!

  210. Matty"Monster Nash"Boy on

    How cool for MacD to get the hat. Broken up face. Holding Ovechcrap to nothing. Wow. Warrior

  211. I had Leafs in 7 too. OOPS.

    As Sioux asked before, for the next round I think the Leafs are a hell matchup for the Rangers. Much happier (but still horrified) with the Bruins. Raks has given up a lot of goals and their defense is very injured.

  212. Wow, McDonuts with the hat; looks like Brando after his dockside disagreement with Johnny Friendly.

  213. Stranger Nation on

    Key to game – no PPs to slow momentum. Once we stayed out of the box, we took control of series.

  214. Matty"Monster Nash"Boy on

    Norm, I hear you. He did only play for half a year. Crosby was out a lot, too.

    Hate to say it, I don’t know Chicago’s two stars weren’t selected, but Tavares ‘deserves’ the Hart. Whether or not he wins is another story.

  215. i think manny and I only ones who feel for rangers the better matchup was bruins. physical not great pp most games in bost 2-1 over years .

    leafs had too much speed better pp and rangers playing in canada always an issue

  216. Delzotto is the toughest guy in the league

    We seemed to get every bounce tonight and we played the perfect defensive game…too bad this masterpiece wasn’t reserved for game 7 of the finals…instead we get to watch Lou Cheech steamroll his way around the ice for 2 weeks. I’d love to see Kreider line him up and send him to Pahk the cah

  217. Yea, eric. Leafs are hell for us. JVR in the crease with no clearing D-Man. Lupul is a murderous nutcase. Phaneuf has already retired one of our boys. I know their goaltending isn’t great but Kessel, Kadri and Lupul with JVR hanging out basically in the cage would destroy us.

    Facing Boston finally means a PP that isn’t murderous.

  218. Matty"Monster Nash"Boy on

    Manny, great pic of MacD.

    That’s one of the reasons I love this sport. He gets up, dusts himself off, and plays 10 minutes later. Amazing.

    Show me a baseball or basketball player that isnt out for 2 freaking weeks from that????

  219. Gravy, Just Gravy on

    On one hand, it’s nice that they’re playing a different team. On the other, I hope they play the other same team from last year in the next round.

  220. Someone’s Post: There will be talk of Clowe and Staal, but who goes out from this good, balanced line-up? Asham?

    Eminger? Kreider? Nice problems now.

    Right, Eminger will keep Staal out of the lineup. Jees!

  221. 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.

  222. should be a hell of a series with the Bruins. So many different potential headlines.

    Also if we never plays the Caps in the playoffs again it will be too soon.

  223. I wonder if Gaborik’s post-surgery wonky groin or Nash’s pre-surgery wonky groin feels worse….

  224. Sioux-per-man 15.0 on

    eric – take the time to get an avitar.

    Or I’m not reading you anymore.

    Seriously. My doubts are telling me you are not a REAL BONEHEAD!

  225. Love Eminger’s toughness, grit, but he is a defensive car wreck waiting to happen.

  226. Thanks all you guys for making all this great stuff that much better. Really enjoy the stories,and the humor RANGERS in five!!!!

  227. Sioux-per-man 15.0 on

    Carp – you were wrong picking against the team you wanted to win :(

  228. With realignment, we can look forward to an increased chance of playing the Caps every year in the playoffs.

  229. I think eric is literally the only person that NOT having an avatar works BETTER than HAVING an avatar. It totally fits his style.

  230. Sioux-per-man 15.0 on

    Manny – Can’t wait to get to New York!!!

    It’s your town. you will have to show me around.

    Best Irish pub is……

  231. IBleedRangersBlue on

    Im so glad the rangers didnt sign Nash at the deadline, we didnt need him, we won the series anyway…wait…what? hes on the team? oh! well LETS GO RANGERS!!!!

  232. While I was extremely bummed after Game 5 and intended to be busy on Mother’s Day…I had to watch Game 6 and was rewarded with seeing Hank give a shutout performance for the ages.

    Now, after tonight, I’m just speechless. I heard Mike Richter on the radio when I got out of work and he was asked point blank “Is Hank better than you were?” and Richter immediately said “For certain, he’s better”

    This performance tonight was stunning. I have no words, only incredible admiration and love for a team that showed unbelievable heart.

    And Hank looks better than ever. Back to back shutouts in Game 6 and 7? Are you kidding me???

    Amazing. Just amazing.

    Bring on Boston.

    Oh, and keep Richards on the 4th line. LOL

  233. Sioux-per-man 15.0 on

    No BEERS for Eric until he finds an avitar!

    Doodie – I’ll buy that guy a beer…… and a steak :)

  234. I voted for Richards, Coos. For his locker room presence. 4-0 in Game 7’s lifetime. You can’t coach that. It’s like Rupper!

    (I usually vote for guys that have 0 votes. Communism)

  235. Stranger Nation on

    Given the recent concussion issues with this team, I hope McD doesn’t wake up with a bad headache tomorrow. that bruise was already purple.
    Ovi was dirty with the hits and the stick all night.

  236. Best Irish pubs are in New England. But we can get Irish beers anywhere, Sioux. What we can do is hit up JFK and take a flight to Dublin for the best Guinness in the WORLD.

  237. LOL…Asham has a GIANT mole on hhis face…You’d think he have that thing removed no?

  238. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" Game 7 Heaven!!!"...says Greg L. on



  239. Stranger: I think Ovechkin might actually have an intent to injure but I really didn’t have a problem with his hits there. None of them were illegal.

  240. Matty"Monster Nash"Boy on

    What’s Geico going to do with all those Backstrom commercials now????

    had to juggle a bunch of things during the game
    and now i’m trying to relax and enjoy
    Congrats to Hank for another
    and an effort that got
    stronger by everyone else
    as the game moved forward

  242. Matty"Monster Nash"Boy on

    Ovie saying Hank is the best goalie in the league!!!

    Fine, but you are STILL not the best forward in this league and you, sir, are a moron.

  243. YouveGotGold on

    What are the odds the NHL announces the start time of Game 1 before the drop of the puck for Game 1?

  244. Buttman, after Ranger victory, re-institutes rule book. Boarding and Charging once again violations of fair play subject to penalty. Decision to once again modify rule book will be revisted if and when Rangers play Pittsburg in ECF.

  245. eric
    gary is conferring with mario and cindy
    about when the Rangers/bruins schedule?
    they’re considering
    7 games in 5 days type of thing

  246. Ovi’s reckless hit on McD was dangerous and was boarding. On the other hand, he always steps up with the Press Corps win or lose. I’ll take him.

  247. Papa
    i don’t want it go that
    would rather play sens
    and be pleased that

  248. Duguay, with no fashion sense, wearing striped shirt with dotted tie. He’s a poseur. Maybe borrowed the tie in that he probably doesn’t own one. Nothing wrong with that.

    Gravy, for all the naysayers, Boyle had in incredible series. Call it what you want, and he is NOT perfect, but his size, his face offs, PK, AND his poise, he helped this team a lot. Does he make mistakes? Yes, he does. They all do. But, he was a good sized factor in the win.

  282. Torts to Sather: “I told them to forget everything and just go out there and have fun. Am I brilliant, or what?”

  283. Eddie – Brassard is special. I agree with brutha. I was thick in the head. You are right…

    Brassard has proven all his critics wrong…

  284. Gravy, Just Gravy on

    e3, I find it ironic, and supersonic, and hooked on phonics that you have anointed Bro’s Hard as the chosen one after you gave up on Gaborik so quickly.

    Boyle played much better as series went on. Think he was also helped by having Dorset around to take care of biz should the need arise.

  286. And Zuccarello is special too…hard not to see that…

    What a brilliant series for both Brass and Zucc!!

  287. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" Game 7 Heaven!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Eddie three 3 , Brassard fakes the shot..or does he?…BAM!!!

    IN the net!!!

    Brassard alone is better then Gaborik.

    Zucco is our best player. Next to our defense.

    Matty, Boyle has opened the eyes of the blind haters…he may get off the WBM(c) some day.

  289. Eddie – Just because I want to see Brassard succeed next season before I put him in the Hall of Fame, does that make me an enemy or hater of Brassard?

    My bruthas – brassard is sweeter than sugar with the puck – he reminds me of TGO – obviously an over the top comment – but that cat will be a great great player and he LOVES the big stage.

  291. What a game. The perfect antidote for all the naysayers (you know who you are) who didn’t think the boys could get it done! And the favorite whipping boys had huge games, including MDZ, Nash, and Boyle. And the Kreider. Sure he had that bonehead play when he skated right by Green, but then he comes back with that nice pass to Asham, and later laid out Hendricks (if I remember correctly) with a big hit. And we finally won a Game 7 on the road. This was a great first series and there’s no reason this team can’t go far.

  292. Call them crazy (and they are) but check out who of our boys wears no face shield. That’s tough.

  293. Stranger Nation on

    NYR – yes it does. We require absolute unadulterated love on bros-hard. Unrequited, no questions asked, for eternity.

    My brutha – he is showing me what he can do when it matters – the playoffs. The regular season is only to get you to the post season. As torts says “the playoffs is where you make your legacy”

    While I realize the blog format and features are not Carp’s doing…this format has become one big pain in the arse. I had Carp on video coming at me like it was Groundhog Day

  296. >>brassard is sweeter than sugar with the puck – he reminds me of TGO

    For what he brings so far, I would have traded Gaborik for him, straight up.
