  1. I wonder if AV ever uses a “Timeout” with his children when they are overly rambunctious.

  2. Yeah, E3. Can’t argue with you about the language. Generally, we’re civil to each other. I’ll pretend to sympathize when the Flyers aren’t playing well and they pretend to sympathize when we’re not playing well. Usually, there’s no trash talk.

  3. Killer Klein exploding on Raffle 2min after Raffle face washed him was the highlight of the night for me(besides the obvious)
    Horse teeth threw a little jab at Torts in the Post game, good for him.
    Pullout continues to surprise me, he can be dominate at times.

  4. One thing we do have in common, though, is a healthy love of our teams, and a healthy hatred of all things Crosby and Penguins, in general. : )

  5. MSL gave a pep talk before the game, saying NO PASSENGERS! Was he looking at his amigo, #19, and did it work? I’d say so.

  6. Crosby looks like he’s had lip reduction surgery. Maybe it’s just the camera angles. :)

  7. EddieJ: My best friend in the world hated hockey growing up. He went to UPenn and ended up LOVING the Phlyers. He’s not a traditional hockey fan or from Philly so I thought he would be cool. But at my wedding, he was my best man, he finished his speech with “RANGERS SUCK GO PHLYERS”

    tsk tsk

    Snation – I dropped a rhyme at the end of last thread…my brutha….

    Kooz – I’m Victorian in manner and a gentleman. That said, the Phyers can go Byfuglien themselves…

  9. Sioux -Hat Trick- Get in the Game on

    I miss the post game jab at Torts. Any link to that?

    MSL – No passengers! Ha!

  10. Dizzo lady interviewer to CarProblems:

    “If you could be a building, what kind of building would you be?”

    “a tenement.”

  11. Sioux: He just said that his line got to actually spend a whole season playing together to develop chemistry.

  12. “Sioux: He just said that his line got to actually spend a whole season playing together to develop chemistry.”

    Wow, he’s a dumbaasen. His line’s been together for four games.

  13. Rob in Beantown on

    My fiancee and I were doing wedding invitation stuff during the game last night (more like she was doing and I was “supporting”). Her family is from Philadelphia and are big Flyers fans. She had to call him to ask a question at one point, and while she was on the phone the 4 minute high sticking double minor happened, and he started going off about how the Flyers just got completely byfugliened over by the refs, and that all these supposed Rangers cross checks weren’t getting called the other way. She stayed on the phone with him for the two Rangers goals. I *love* beating the Flyers.

  14. I think he might have been referring to maybe the Pouliot, Brassard, Zucc line. I don’t really recall. But it was something about how Vigneault doesn’t juggle lines.

    But yea. He’s wrong about his line.

  15. Rob in Beantown on

    She had to call her dad. That’s an important part of the story that I left out.

  16. Sioux -Hat Trick- Get in the Game on

    Fast played 2 games with him :)

    or this could be what earth science is to chemistry.

  17. What’s worse to him? Stealing his daughter away from him or beating his hockey team?

  18. Reminds me of Rickey Henderson, who teammated on the Mets a few years with John Olerud, who played defense with a helmet because of a college brain aneurysm.

    They both ended up in Seattle, and Rickey asked him why he wore the helmet all game. Olerud explained it to him, and Rickey said, ‘I think I played on the Mets with a guy who had the same thing.”

  19. Sioux -Hat Trick- Get in the Game on

    Flyers, Penguins, Boston, in that order :)

    Let me count the wins!!!

    Not sure about the Wild, Wild, West. Hopefully they kill each other getting 12 wins.

  20. Sioux -Hat Trick- Get in the Game on

    Great Story Rob.

    She didn’t throw in one #Lets Go Rangers :)

  21. Manny-
    My best friend in the world grew up a Ranger fan like me and switched to the Devils when they came into existence. He’s still my best friend though. Ugh!

  22. Kiner told it. He always gave you the inside stories others were afraid to touch publicly. RIP.

  23. Rob in Beantown on

    I’ve pretty much converted her to a Rangers fan since the Rangers are the only team we ever watch, though she’s being kind of cheeky with me during this series in a funny way. But she was giving it back to her dad saying the rules are the rules.

    BTW, Hagelin should have been number one star for actually *bleeding* when we needed him too.

  24. Good point. Hagelin bleeding was a huge game changer.

    That’s *BRUTAL* EddieJ

    Amazing, Coos.

  25. Only a matter of time before some players start carrying little “blood capsules” they can pop in their mouths at the appropriate moment.

  26. Rob in Beantown on

    I made her a Rangers fan and a Giants fan. I think *that’s* what kills her dad.

  27. Rob in Beantown on

    coos, I always wonder why they don’t do it WWE style and carry a small razer to cut themselves with.

  28. I know, I thought it was a little weird when it was obvious Hagelin was bleeding and the cheers grew louder. Yay, our guy’s bleeding!!

  29. A favorite Henderson quote:

    “Rickey doesn’t like it when Rickey’s limo is late!”

  30. Carp: If I’m a hockey player I pre-cut parts of my face. At least thin up the skin a bit. Then take a lot of blood thinners. Being able to bleed is a skill that can be acquired. It’s not such an intangible.

  31. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Rob – great story. Good luck with your insane future father in law.

    Chemistry is about the here and now. The half-life of the Rocket’s line is all that matters.

    Fryers Brow.

  32. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Manny – good point. Bleeding on demand is important in the playoffs. Fake blood capsules should be in every Ranger’s mouth…

  33. True: Dizzo lady interviewer to Zucc:

    “What one thing would you change about yourself if you could change just one thing?”

    Topo: “I’d be six foot five.”

  34. If Chara makes a smaller player chit himself, do the refs have the obligation to check the shorts and declare 4 minutes if proof is found?

  35. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Reporter – if you could be a color, what it be?

    JR – “both a cat and a dog”

  36. Fake blood capsules is a GREAT call. They will look extra real and congealed because of the low temperature on the ice.

    Good thinking!

  37. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Congealed is a great word.

    JR – “sometimes I Congeal and sometimes I can’t”

  38. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Kooz – I didn’t see your blood capsules post until just now…great minds……

  39. Coach to Richie late in Game 7: “Go out there, take a stick for the team and pop a capsule.”

  40. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    I agree…

    On another note, can anyone explain to me how that tool Carton has his job? That guy is a complete moron.

  41. I’m treading very lightly here at work. I don’t work in the same office as my boss and most of my team who are in the Philly area and are die hard fans of everything Philly, so I try to not talk about the Rangers, Giants or any other NY team. They ribbed me about the Yankees, but the Phillies suck worse, so they haven’t said anything this year. It’s going to be hard not to say anything if this is a short series in the NYR favor :)

  42. E3, he must be screwing some bigwig in the office. Carton is such a tool. You can see the contempt on Boomers face during most of their conversations. Heck, you can hear it in his voice. I always felt on Friday’s Boomer is probably thinking…Thank God it’s Friday and the last show of the week, so I can go work with the other morons at CBS :)

  43. Bet Boomer’s making more moolah than he ever dreamed of when he played QB. Ironies.

  44. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Kooz – Steve ; but still. Putting up with that bald cockroach every morning has to be a nightmare….

  45. Maybe not about that, ilb, but probably about something else.. :)

    Enjoy your weekend.

  46. Sure, ilb is enjoying his weekend, while the rest of us scurry around trying in vain to put food on the table.

  47. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    If I didnt eat food, I wouldn’t be able to drop monster Rinaldos into the can every morning.

  48. Stranger Nation on

    Rangers got a gift last night with second minor on Hags penalty. Thought you needed blood on the ice to get 4 mins. If they call this series tight, it will be a huge boost for us.

  49. Stranger, the rule book says this:

    “60.3 Double-minor Penalty – When a player carries or holds any part of his stick above the shoulders of the opponent so that injury results, the Referee shall assess a double-minor penalty for all contact that causes an injury, whether accidental or careless, in the opinion of the Referee.”

    Might not have bled, but if there was a mark of sorts, they still have the ability to call a double minor.

  50. Eddie x 3

    I just got diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Isn’t that what led into
    “I Know You Rider?” Or am I mistaken?


    Thought you were very perceptive about Moore. Some really shaky moments in the first half of the game. And I could not believe the effort and urgency that #19 put forth from his first shift. It was like Bob Nevin turned into Ryan Hollweg.

  51. Rob and Laura right down the boulevard. Bonnie Meadow Rd! Actually, I think it was Carl Reiner’s true address. New Rochelle, (Scarsdale P.O.) Where the hell am I?

  52. Richie has lost his legs. Not his fault, but fact. Still has the shot if left alone.

  53. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Stemmer – bummer on your illness…but I just planted some china cat sunflowers that grew into I know you rider…..but the fire on the mountain won’t be good for my Scarlett Begonias…

  54. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Snation – Blood on the Tracks is a 5 minute major – especially since the flyers got all Tangled up in Blue

  55. Good evening all! Good gracious, what is the woman in the gif doing to that seat!!!

    Still, um, flying high from yesterday. My Boston cousin is getting nervous…hee hee hee. Go Wings!!! For now at least.

    All this talking about whine is making me thirsty….

  56. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Before the game, The Rangers should skate down the golden road to unlimited devotion…

  57. Hello heads. What a great day to be a ranger fan. Hope tonight gives us nothing but double OT for all teams.

    Can’t wait for Sunday but will savor the good vibes all day Saturday.

    To a man, I thought they all showed up to play. Richie and MSL had great games, I thought Klein was very good and I loved his edge.

    Let’s just keep it up and take out the trash and by the trash of course I mean the flyers.

  58. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    I’ve got a rumble in my stomach – mind be time to pinch another Rinaldo before the wings game…

  59. Quenneville had already apologized for the gesture. “It was a bush-league move on my part,” he said earlier in the day.

  60. Way too much intestinal and other bodily functions going on here…..ORR, come on man…..ewwwwww.

  61. It’s way too much money in comparison to the fines levied against Neal and Hartnell, for sure. NHL would prefer Hartnell to eliminate someone’s reproductive potential rather than having Quenneville remind everybody of his.

  62. Olga Folkyerself on

    Middleton for Hodge

    Ferguson deserves a seat in Hell, right between Stalin and Hitler.

  63. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Olga – one more game in saint Louie and it’s on to Chicago and let’s win there…

  64. Datsyuk is something else. Just fended off three Bruins and maintained control of the puck, setting up a nice chance.

  65. ORR, TB also have Connolly. If he pans out too (I haven’t heard much about him), that’s some serious forward talent.

  66. Admiral Akbar on

    I’ve got a strange brew of Rinaldo and Cooke in my large intestine, making its way distally towards the porcelain throne via peristaltic motion.

  67. iManny-O-War on

    Me (to Mrs. Manny): “You ok, dear? You look concerned.”

    Mrs. Manny: “Yea. I’m just concerned about my playoff bracket.”


    We have destroyed the innocence of my wife.

  68. Stranger Nation on

    Latona – understand rule but usually need red chicklets on the ice to get the double. We’ll take it but need refs to call it tight all series or more blood will flow

  69. Gudas wanted no part of Prust after Prust sent Gudas’shielded helmet flying. Not much of a fight, all in all. Gudas should have received the extra two for interference. Took a while for Prust to drop the leather.

  70. Scott Hartnell ?@Hartsy19 8m

    A New Yorker told me to beat the Rangers !!! A great ending to a great day!!! #flyers #ClutchTime

    that “New Yorker” is definitely from Nassau county

  71. Lucic just speared a wing in the onions made them red. Habs going home up 2-0……pretty good team there

  72. Wasn’t there a rumor Ray Bourque faked some blood in the playoffs, maybe his rookie year?

  73. No lev I don’t.

    Habs are a better team. Lightning overachieved all year. Most of there rookies are hitting a wall.

    I love cally but he’s not the guy scoring a big goal. This could be over real quick.

  74. Olga Folkyerself on

    Lev, I hate Montreal. Sympathy for Tampa won’t extend beyond this series.

  75. ThisYearsModel on

    Watching the game on NESN. Apparently, no Bruin has ever committed a true penalty.

  76. I don’t believe results diff first 2 games with bishop. Lindback played well in defeat allowing 5 last game.

  77. 39-15 outshot in game 1. Lindback made some real big saves in game 1. Tampa overachieved .

  78. It’s a good thing this isn’t a Rangers game….my stomach is in mini knots watching Wings….come on!!! Take Rask to task already!!!

  79. Ha, I was thinking the same thing about Oshie….hey, good for him.

    Seee, don’t disagree, but holy hartnell…..

    Now there is a commercial worth watching…for the star :). This game makes me need an Advil, or Hank…

  80. Carp, can we maybe get a non-Rangers but other games night kinda go time thread for other game chats? Prust asking…..and forgive the grammar

  81. Colby Armstrong ?@armdog 1m

    Wow. The magic man snakes the puck up between his legs like video game then enters the zone on a Sunday stroll and rips it back across #nbd

  82. I just sent my Boston cousin this message …

    In the immortal words of Better Midler, you are the wind beneath my Wings.

    Phew…one day off til the madness continues. I love this time of year…

  83. iWicky "Frag Out!!!" on

    So you grab your own frank and beans and the nhl gets you for $25k, but you target someone’s head and it only costs you $5k…???

    Does this seem logical to anyone???

    I mean you can head shot 5 dudes or grab your own crotch once…wtf?

  84. All Seguin has to do is not get an assist and I have the revere hat trick for Sioux’s league!

  85. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Mama – you need to drop a Rinaldo it seems…,

    One down, three to go, and the rangers are going to the finals

  86. Reverse hat trick, that is. Been talking about Slats Revere around here too often, I guess.

  87. Chara, Loocheek, and Marchand take their blankets and retire to the totem pole for the evening. Who’s on top?

  88. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Watching the Bruins lose is wonderful. Wings beat them and our path to the finals opens wide…

  89. James van Riemsdyk ?@JVReemer21 32m

    Datsyuk just took the saying “you can’t make a bad pass to a good player” to a whole new level

    Logan Couture ?@Logancouture 32m

    Mr. @Datsyuk13 you are filthy. That’s all

    Kyle Turris ?@kyleturris 17m

    Wow #13

  90. Shows you how much players respect Datsyuk, Lev. I bet nobody would have tweeted such things about Crosby if he scored a goal like that.

  91. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Latona – the boys in the bath houses would have tweeted gleefully had sausage lips scored like that…

  92. Nothing like hot juicy *Rinaldo* to start the day off.

    Looking forward to my coffee at 8:30 and my *Rinaldo* at 8:45.

    It’s like clockwork, could set your watch by my 8:45.

  93. Admiral Akbar on

    I’ll be dropping a nice Rinaldo in peace in about 6 hours when I get up for work tomorrow.

  94. Miami Playoff Pimp on


    whoever posted that gets it.

  95. Miami Playoff Pimp on

    Second, you’ll love this.

    I have a friend and she told me that her Flyers buddy told her that “the refs stole Game 1 from the Flyers”


  96. ThisYearsModel on

    You check your package, and get a $25,000 fine from the league. You spear someone else’s package, and you don’t even get a penalty. What a classy league.

  97. Mrs. Quenneville: “Sweetcakes, there’s 25 thousand missing from our checking account. What’s that all about?”

  98. Admiral Akbar on


    ‘Twas I who proclaimed in a former post The Superiority of The Kreider over the highly talented, yet humanly flawed Pavel Datsuik!
