Rangers at Flames tonight (9 p.m.) … pre-game notes


In case you’re wondering why I chose the photo above … Look over Derek Dorsett’s right shoulder … now look at the guy with his hand against the glass. Now look behind him at the guy in the upper corner wearing the alternate jersey, with the Fighting Sioux hat. Try and guess who that is. Hint: He brought me some Sioux-venirs (below, a giant flag and a couple of beer koozies). I also think that’s the Mrs.’ hand raised right next to him. (AP photo).

Lundqvist established two franchise records in a five-day span, becoming the Rangers’ all-time wins leader with his 302nd career victory on Mar. 18 at Ottawa (8-4, 35 saves) and the team’s all-time shutouts leader with his 50th career shutout on Mar. 22 at New Jersey (2-0, 21 saves). He registered his 300th career win with a 30-save shutout, the 49th of his career, in the Rangers 3-0 victory over Detroit on Mar. 9 at Madison Square Garden. He became the 29th goaltender in NHL history to reach the 300-win mark, and is one of six active goalies with at least 300 wins.

He has tallied the game-winning goal in each of the last two games, and three of the last five contests. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, McDonagh is the first Rangers defenseman to score the winning goal in consecutive games since Dec. 29-30, 2003 (Tom Poti). He has now tallied six goals in March, which are the most by a Rangers defenseman in one calendar month since Jan. 1998 (6 – Brian Leetch).

The Rangers won their 40th game of the season with a 4-3 overtime win over Phoenix on Monday at Madison Square Garden. The Blueshirts have won 40 or more games in seven of the last nine seasons (seven of the last eight full seasons), and 17 times in franchise history. It is the first time in franchise history the Rangers have registered seven 40-win seasons in a nine-season span. The Blueshirts are one of six teams that have reached the 40-win mark at least seven times since the 2005-06 season, along with Pittsburgh, San Jose, Detroit, Anaheim, and Nashville.

New York is in the midst of a four-game road winning streak, and has won 21 of their last 28 contests on the road. The Rangers have posted two separate six-game road winning streaks this season for the first time in franchise history. The Blueshirts are now 23-13-0 on the road this season. Their 23 road wins rank second among all NHL teams, and is one shy of the franchise record for road wins in a season.

About Author


  1. I say we all chip in, trade Tavares to Sather for Justin Falk and a 2nd rounder ( to make it legit), and then sell them back to mr. Bettman. Anyone here with spare change?

  2. I think it’s fantastic for boneheads to meet in person. It’s probably like seeing an old friend.

    Way to go with the siouxveneers.

    Carp, If you wear the hat and use the beer coozy will you too start clamoring for Kristo?

    Only kidding Sioux!

  3. Spring is here, but the warm weather has not arrived. Sounds like Calgary? Sounds like NYC? LGR! Another Daily Onion performance!

  4. Oh, and Sioux’s out jogging this morning in short sleeves and shorts…no worries, the NYC bears have not yet come out of hibernation.

  5. Former Rangers captain Ryan Callahan had two goals for the Lightning, who trail Montreal by two points for second place in the Atlantic Division.

  6. Matty"NoKreider/EvenSofter"Boy on

    So, I guess Patrick will be retiring and work exclusively at his Sports Bureau?

  7. Matty"TeamTough"Boy on

    Tonight is the type of game that could surprise us. The Flames are NO pushover. Got some size. Some Skill. Some toughness. Better than average goaltending.

    Buyer Beware!! Play hard, boys!!

    This one’s as important as beating Carolina and even Philthy, too!!!!

    LGR!!! LGR!!! LGR!!!!

  8. Matty"TeamTough"Boy on

    A win tonight and we start to separate into 2nd place in the Lesstern. Capry’s pre-season prediction.

    A loss, and it’s a conspiracy against the Rangers. It’s Bettman’s fault. It’s….it’s…… (fill in the blank)

  9. The Lightning are 6-1-4 (16 points) after the deadline with Callahan scoring. NY- 8-3-1 ( 17 points) without MSL scoring a single goal.

  10. That is completely awesome. Nice job Carp, excellent photo/shout-out, and very cool Sioux-venirs!

    Sioux, those tickets must have cost you bunch, right?

    I sat almost next to the goal judge once in row A… only to find out there was a row AA! Grr…

  11. Didn’t the Canadians already clinch a playoff spot?

    So…. Callahan > St. Louis but Rangers > Lightning ? Did I get that right, Ilb?

  12. iDoodie Machetto on

    St. Louis better start scoring some goals. He’s been less productive than our former. #26, Killer Christensen.

  13. The problem with Ryan Callahan being at 4-4-8 over 11 games with Tampa is that he wants to be paid like a guy who is offense only and he contributes in other, sometimes dangerous, facets of the game. That’s just not the type of player you invest in long term, not when a guy who might put up 15-20 more points while doing literally nothing else to contribute is available.

  14. You guys think we can pool enough money together to purchase the Islanders and then immediately shut them down?

  15. Sioux-per-man on

    LOL – Nothing like starting the day out laughing!

    It’s going to be a Sioux-per day that’s for sure!

    As for the Sioux-venirs they were a hit, with everyone that night. My thought was Carp needed something for Blog HQ, something to put next to Mr Titelist.

    As for the flag – you can’t buy them anymore. The NCAA banned them from UND. So we fly them on game day, after a win, and NEVER take them down after a Championship! The road tonight starts at 6:00pm vs Wisconsin:)

  16. _so who is in net tonight? i guess cam will get a start in one of the next two?_

    Henrik, Cam (if win tonight), Henrik, Henrik?

  17. not sure who’s in goal … not sure Talbot gets any games on this trip. He might. AV will speak after the 11:30 morning skate, which is 1:30 our time. Keep an eye on the widget ——>

  18. Sioux-per-man on

    eBay is the only place. The Sioux shop can’t sell it anymore. We use to 50 lids to chose from now ZERO.

  19. Miguel Cabrera’s contract extension, over the next 10 years, in Detroit will exceed $300M. That’s more than $30M/Year.

  20. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    If you look closely at that pic, to the of DD, wearing # 28, on the ice.. That me…Dom Moore

  21. @SNHockeyCentral Buffalo Sabres announce the team will retire the jersey of goaltender Dominik Hasek in a ceremony during the 2014-15 season.

  22. You don’t speak that way about THE Kreider!

    If anyone’s capable of typing with a broken hand, it’s THE.

    He’s capable of playing with two broken feet.

    He is the best.

  23. “Signed to a five-year, $22.5-million free-agent deal in the off-season, Lecavalier has just 15 goals and 15 points in a season that was hindered by a back injury.”

    Morons pulled a Sather.

  24. Sioux-per-man on

    Beware of the Flames tonight. Knight was picked up by the flames and they have called him up. He was Kristos partner in crime last year. I wouldn’t be surprised if he pulled a Parise on us tonight!

  25. Great catch, Carp. Sioux, you have to do a Guester that includes your trip to Manhattan. Nash in his Nashster was serendipitous.

  26. Sioux-per-man on

    Mrs Sioux has pointed out to me that we made it in about 6 of the MSG photos. And the boys at home are razzing me for not wearing my SIOUXperman Jersey.

  27. Rob in Beantown on

    True fact: Aside from being a HUGE Rangers fan, Linda Cohn played goalie for the women’s hockey team at SUNY Oswego in college.

  28. Sioux-per-man on

    Coos – I will. It’s always a Grand experience when visiting Rangerstown :)

    Yesterday highlight was Kats. Mrs Sioux just about castrated me for that New York experience :)

  29. Be careful that NYState and NYC doesn’t tax you 3/365th of your salary for the time you spend in the City.

  30. Seems like the Flames are out to *sandbag* us pretty hard:

    ?@JimCerny Flames all referencing #NYR depth, “firepower”, and extreme high praise for Lundqvist. .All say #NYR are one of best teams in NHL…

  31. Rob in Beantown on

    More sandbagging:

    New York Rangers @NYRangers
    Calgary coach Bob Hartley on the #NYR this AM: “they stuck together, no one panicked early in the year..they are one of best in the league”

    This one is looking pretty *hopeless*

  32. Rob in Beantown on

    New York Rangers @NYRangers
    #NYR Injury Update: Chris Kreider will be sidelined indefinitely following surgery on his hand today


  33. @KatieStrangESPN #NYR Rangers announce that Chris Kreider underwent surgery on his hand today. He is out indefinitely

  34. I am doing a *horrible* job of posting things on time today. Sorry. Way to teach me a lesson, Rob.

  35. Aside from hating them, shouldn’t we be rooting for the Flyers tonight? Or is home ice that important?

  36. She don’t even know my naaAAAAme

    But I think she likes me just the saaame


  37. Rob in Beantown on

    Jim Abbott played *baseball* with just one hand, why can’t The KREIDER play *hockey* with one?

  38. Yeah, I think we need to root for teams currently in or completely out of playoff position. This way, I can wait until the actual playoffs for my *heart attack*.

  39. I think I’m fine either way because I don’t think the Leaves are going to make it. Just no *3* point games.

  40. “We know we can beat them,” Mark Stall said (re: Calgary). It’s not like one of those teams where you get into their rink and almost like you don’t even know if you’re going to try to win. We’ve shown them we can go in there and win.” – NY Post, Cyrgalis

    What in hell is Staal talking about? Captain material?

  41. Rob in Beantown on

    _It’s not like one of those teams where you get into their rink and almost like you don’t even know if you’re going to try to win._


  42. iWicky "Frag Out!!!" on

    Trade material…unless he can orchestrate a deal where Eric and Jordan come here in the off season

  43. Stranger Nation on

    _almost like you don’t even know if you’re going to try to win_

    tar and feathers!! Trade the traitor!!!

  44. Stranger Nation on

    _Jim Abbott played baseball with just one hand, why can’t The KREIDER play hockey with one_

    Doesn’t Henk only play with one hand?? #noglove

  45. Stranger Nation on

    Is Pissburg catchable? team is falling like a stone down a well. Guess they do miss Malkenstein.

  46. I’m not only in minority here, but totally alone, irrationally NOT being upset with the Kreider’s absence.

  47. It seems more likely that the Stahl brothers will want out of Carolina, according to LB a few weeks back. They’re stuck with Ward’s contract and have missed the playoffs a lot.

  48. Falk has no future here. That’s decided. He sealed his fate when he refused a conditioning stint.

  49. Falk doesn’t want to play in Hartford until he gets to see his kid graduate from NYU.

  50. Is it unreasonable to think that Pitt takes a new tack and makes sure it doesn’t peak early again?

  51. iWicky "Frag Out!!!" on

    You are not alone, good player, but I’m not devastated he isn’t in the line up re ENIGMA

  52. I would rather acquire Eric and Jordan (and Jared even) than lose Marc. NYC could use the discount on Sod for Central Park.

  53. Either Staal was misquoted, can’t get his mouth to express his mind cogently, or he has a latent defeatist attitude that we can’t accept around here.

  54. Apparently Flames had a testy practice yesterday (surprisingly after putting up a big fight against Anaheim)

  55. They will all just do whatever their mom tells them. NYR brass should get in contact with Momma Staal.

  56. Eric had 31 points in his first season (year before the lockout), before scoring 100 points the following year. I wonder if Carolina fans reacted the same way some do when THE has a bad game.

  57. I hope Richie is bought out and then signs with someone in our division so that we can play a speedy 5 on 4 offense against him without needing a power play.

  58. iWicky "Frag Out!!!" on

    Lol re sod manny

    I’d absolutely include step and miller in a deal for Eric and Jordan

  59. I heard he’s deep into the Lord of the Rings trilogy. He might even have brought along the Encyclopedia of Middle Earth for reference.

  60. Franklin Kistner on

    The wife and I were in Calgary @trade deadline in 1994. Met Neal Smith in the lobby afternoon before game @ Saddledome. I am 6′ 5″ and weighed 365 then. I had a Blue Rangers jersey on (4X). I introduced myself and my wife to him and said “I just want to shake your hand.” Without missing a beat, he shook our hands and said “Thank God; I thought you were one of the guys I traded for.” We laughed all the way to the Stanley Cup. LGR!

  61. A place next to Radio City MH, ‘Lindy’s,’ that, for the cheesecake, people from all the world frequented for almost 100 years on NYC visits. Don’t know if it’s as good as it used to be.

  62. Robby Bonfire on

    The Sioux logo looks a lot more attractive than the Black Hawks or Cleveland Indians “Yahoo” logo, ever did. Quite nice, in fact.

  63. F. Monteleone in Carroll Gardens. S & S up in the Bronx. There is one on 86th. St and 15th Ave in Brooklyn. The name escapes me.

  64. cheesecake a bit oily at Mona Lisa’s. Also, the framed picture of Leonardo DiCaprio doesn’t help.

  65. Le flamme are playing hard hockey right now. With that said expect a one goal game. And a win by the good guys

  66. Rob in Beantown on

    For some reason I usually get confused when I recommend S&S and want to say “S&M Cheesecake.” _That_ might be worth the trip to the Bronx. :)

  67. A Co-Worker of mine entered a New Jersey Devils Ticket Giveaway contest when he was at a Devils game recently on something called (seriously) “Jewish Appreciation Night.”

    Since then his phone has been flooded with advertisements and vacation offers from hundreds of marketing companies.

  68. Kris Oops.

    Hope the knife goes well.

    Love the avatars of the regulars. Can now get thru a day’s
    postings in about three minutes:-).

  69. ThisYearsModel on

    Calgary will come out hard against us tonight. They have been playing pretty well. Hope the Rangers show up.

  70. @WolfPackAHL #HWP GAME NOTES: Both Danny Kristo & Oscar Lindberg have scored twice in the last three games. Kristo w/ 20 goals and Lindberg w/ 16 goals.

  71. Staal says this is a building we can win in, as opposed to others where it’s not worth trying.

  72. Suzie Chapstick on

    Careful tonight…Glencross is a Ranger killer and they have questionable goal tending…perfect recipe for Rangers to shart the bed here so let’s hope they aren’t taking this for granted….haven’t clinched yet, gotta keep going

  73. Speaking of Staal. More about his brothers to be exact. Jordan’s arrival in Carolina didn’t improve their chances to make playoffs. They haven’t. And doesn’t look like they will this year. Their cap hit is higher than NY’s. Eric’s, Jordan’s, and Semin’s combined hit is over $21M. Talk about top heavy.

  74. Latona, you’ve made your point, who cares what Manny says, bring back the frog, dammit.

  75. Nice find ORR. Watching that was bittersweet. Cally, Dubi and Prust were also on the ice. Thankfully McD and Girardi are signed for a while.

  76. I’m anxious to see how the rangers play tonight and will they win the game tonight. Before the Olympic break the rangers looked like a team that was getting it together. After the break the rangers looked like a team who was hurt by the Olympic break and came out struggling but appears there are getting back to the way they were playing right before the Olympic break. Time will tell.

  77. iWicky "Frag Out!!!" on

    I would not do anything to get rid of Stepan…

    Do I think he is way too soft?

    Do I think he will be overpaid significantly in his next contract?

    Do I think his stats gave been padded due to lack of organizational options at centre the past few years and he has had the benefit of very good linemates?

    Do I think he is overrated defencively and in general?

    Do I think he is a 1C in this league?

    Do I think this team would be better off with brassard above him on the depth chart?

    Does he disappear in physical games and the playoffs?

    Would I trade him straight up for a scrub player?

    Would I trade him in a deal that would bring back a good player?

    Do I care that he is homegrown?

    Does that clarify it for you?

  78. Bob McKenzie ? @TSNBobMcKenzie

    “@jedli: Ex-NHLer Martin Straka called it a career couple minutes ago. Had great hockey life – OLY and World champion.” A very good player.

    there will NOT be a Jagr/Straka reunion

  79. Let down written all over it. This trip will be harder then it may appear. Also do any of you really think the rangers will make it easy on us. It’s not suppose to be like that

  80. Sioux-per-man on

    Odonoghues Irish pub on 44th between 6th & 7th

    Sitting here watching Mannys college team. Down 1-0. But I’m still pulling for them. Life would be Grand if the could play in the frozen four!

    You ar all welcome to join us :)

  81. I loved Straka when he was a Ranger.

    That goal he scored in game 5 against the Baby Buffaloes was huge. Should have ended up as the game winner. Drury ruined it!

    With all the chemistry issues NYR have had these last few years, it makes you really appreciate that top line of Straka/Jagr/Nylander. Great chemistry!

  82. iWicky "Frag Out!!!" on

    I remember when steaks got rocked in the corner by gauthier (I think) of the flyers.

    I liked straka and nylander.

  83. Straka was one of my favorite Rangers. Such a versatile player who you could never really complain about. Didn’t they also call the bogus penalty on him in Game 1 against Pittsburgh the next year? Crosby slewfooted him or something and they called Straka for interference, leading to a goal and the loss.

  84. I remember something like that, Latona.

    What a horrible game that was. Trying hard to completely erase it. They blew a 3-0 lead in the game. Matt Cooke scored a goal, if I’m not mistaken.

    And Avery’s season was ended that game.

  85. That was a rough series. Hollweg ruined the epic comeback by NYR in Game 3, and then Hossa scored that Dupuis offside OT goal in Game 5. NYR really had a chance.

  86. Admiral Akbar on

    Hollweg — ugh….. Talk about a high impact player, up all of the impact being negative!

    Remember Hollweg and Chris Simon?

  87. The Kreider, Stepan, J Moore and DuClair to the Canes for Jordan and Eric.

    Book It.

  88. Looking at Straka’s stats on NHL.com, it looks like he was injured a whole lot throughout his career.

    94-95 – 6 games
    95-96 – 65 games
    96-97 – 55 games
    01-02 – 13 games
    02-03 – 60 games
    03-04 – 54 games
    07-08 – 65 games

    That’s just some. Some seasons he played 70 or more games. Rarely played a full season

    257 goals, 717 points in 954 games.

  89. iWicky "Frag Out!!!" on

    Yep. Always liked gauthier, he could hit like a freight train (obviously).

  90. iWicky "Frag Out!!!" on

    Lol, don’t think many of those posters are still here!

    If you ask manny the diver, it’s just the opposite, according to him I’m trying to trade Stepan for konopka lol ;)

    So the Rangers are on at the same time as the Fighting Sioux tonight? What ever will the boneheads do?

    With no THE playing tonight, I may have to switch to the Sioux. Me and Miami Pimp.

  93. While he has been shaky at times..recently had a really tough run, overall he has been a great defensemen for us…at least for the role is supposed to play. i’ll never understand why he gets so much grief on this board when plays much better than he gets credit for here.

    anyone feel like most of diaz’s shots from the point are actually on net whereas our d that’s been here is notorious for missing the net…badly. i think he’s played pretty well.

  94. staying on the topic of food suggestions, anyone recommend the best places for dumplings in the city? Current favorite is Prosperity Dumpling

    Kentucky vs Louisville tonight. Go cats go. Civil war in the Bluegrass state. Few years ago when they met in final four, 2 dialysis patients, one a UK fan the other Louisville, got into a brawl while awaiting treatment…

  96. Booby, agreed on Straka having the ability to play longer. I respect him for leaving the NHL when he did though. Some players have pride.

  97. Ya told me goodbye
    how was I to know
    you didn’t mean goodbye

    don’t let me go
    I was havin’ a Kreid tiiiiiimeee

  98. Lev, I think when Simmonds talks about setting a tone he means cheap-shots after the game’s been decided. :)
