Was practice Optional?
What a play!!!!! What a finish!!!!!!!
Does AV use his timeouts in practice?
I wonder if AV ever uses a “Timeout” with his children when they are overly rambunctious.
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.
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.
eddie3X complaining about language, yuk yuk. :)
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. : )
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.
Crosby looks like he’s had lip reduction surgery. Maybe it’s just the camera angles. :)
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”
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…
Didn’t know the Philthies would have any fans at Penn. Penn State, okay.
Crosby will be going with added Botox for game 2
Crosby is storing the rest of his lips in Pierre’s Gluteus.
I miss the post game jab at Torts. Any link to that?
MSL – No passengers! Ha!
Here’s a FUN .GIF of Pierre: http://img.gawkerassets.com/img/18s4dzfxxayk8gif/k-bigpic.gif
Dizzo lady interviewer to CarProblems:
“If you could be a building, what kind of building would you be?”
Sioux: He just said that his line got to actually spend a whole season playing together to develop chemistry.
Richie’s idea of chemistry is mixing tanning solution with Ultra-Brite.
“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.
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.
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.
She had to call her dad. That’s an important part of the story that I left out.
Wow, Rob. That’s an amazingly gratifying story.
Fast played 2 games with him :)
or this could be what earth science is to chemistry.
What’s worse to him? Stealing his daughter away from him or beating his hockey team?
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.”
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.
Great Story Rob.
She didn’t throw in one #Lets Go Rangers :)
Is that real, Coos? That story is amazing.
Rob – is your fiancé a Flyers Fan :(
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!
Kiner told it. He always gave you the inside stories others were afraid to touch publicly. RIP.
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.
Good point. Hagelin bleeding was a huge game changer.
That’s BRUTAL EddieJ
Only a matter of time before some players start carrying little “blood capsules” they can pop in their mouths at the appropriate moment.
I made her a Rangers fan and a Giants fan. I think that’s what kills her dad.
coos, I always wonder why they don’t do it WWE style and carry a small razer to cut themselves with.
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!!
A favorite Henderson quote:
“Rickey doesn’t like it when Rickey’s limo is late!”
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.
lol, Manny. He ALWAYS referred to himself in the third person.
The scarier part of that McGuirre GIF is the woman in the Hawks jersey on the right.
LOL. Great find, Carp
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.
Half-life is best discussed in the context of Benzo-Diazepams.
Manny – good point. Bleeding on demand is important in the playoffs. Fake blood capsules should be in every Ranger’s mouth…
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.”
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?
Vulgar! I hardly know myself.
Reporter – if you could be a color, what it be?
JR – “both a cat and a dog”
Fake blood capsules is a GREAT call. They will look extra real and congealed because of the low temperature on the ice.
Congealed is a great word.
JR – “sometimes I Congeal and sometimes I can’t”
Italy’s Olympic top three DMen: Scungeel, Gabbagol, and Brezoot.
Kooz – I didn’t see your blood capsules post until just now…great minds…...
Ireland’s top 3: Guinness, Jameson, and Bushmills.
Russia’s leading scorer: Ivanovich Yousonovich.
eddie – I’m surprised someone didn’t already do it. Maybe someone has. :)
Coach to Richie late in Game 7: “Go out there, take a stick for the team and pop a capsule.”
On another note, can anyone explain to me how that tool Carton has his job? That guy is a complete moron.
Stop whining, Manny.
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 :)
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 :)
Bet Boomer’s making more moolah than he ever dreamed of when he played QB. Ironies.
Kooz – Steve ; but still. Putting up with that bald cockroach every morning has to be a nightmare….
I was pretty sure Hagelin had his tooth knocked out. Am I wrong, Carp?
Carton embodies two of the worst traits….arrogance and stupidity.
Hags is still pretty even if he’s missing a molar or two…
Maybe not about that, ilb, but probably about something else.. :)
Enjoy your weekend.
Sure, ilb is enjoying his weekend, while the rest of us scurry around trying in vain to put food on the table.
I wasn’t whining!
If I didnt eat food, I wouldn’t be able to drop monster Rinaldos into the can every morning.
Even if I could find food, where would I get a table to put it on?
Stop whining about not whining!
Carton grew up (if you can call it that) in my neighborhood.
Coos is a New Ro boy!
Hags barely had a bloody lip. All teeth still in.
Kooz – did you know Laura Petrie? She was hot!!!
I didn’t realize the Wings are 3-1 against the Bruins. They definitely have a chance against these guys.
Habs win tonight book it
I don’t know that he actually lost a tooth, ilb. I’ll ask Josh, 26, who interviewed him.
Seems like Bolts wont be getting Bishop anytime soon. Maybe late in the series. Big problem!
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.
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.
pretty sure he bled.
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.
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?
Richie has lost his legs. Not his fault, but fact. Still has the shot if left alone.
Stop whining about not whining, Manny.
Stop whining about Manny whining that he’s not whining!
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…
Snation – Blood on the Tracks is a 5 minute major – especially since the flyers got all Tangled up in Blue
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….
You know why? You forgot to Help on the Way>Slipknot them flowers first!
Red wings 2
This Spanish lady came to me and laid on me this rose…
In the mood for a threesome with Bertha > Cassidy
It’s only been one game but I’ve already had enough of these Philadelphia beat writers :-)
In the morning dew, I saw a wharf rat.
Before the game, The Rangers should skate down the golden road to unlimited devotion…
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.
On Good Friday, I have the Blues for Allah..
AV is the Estimated Prophet.
I’ve got a rumble in my stomach – mind be time to pinch another Rinaldo before the wings game…
Quenneville fined $25,000 for “inappropriate conduct” by the league.
Quenneville had already apologized for the gesture. “It was a bush-league move on my part,” he said earlier in the day.
Way too much money
Way too much intestinal and other bodily functions going on here…..ORR, come on man…..ewwwwww.
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.
Middleton for Hodge
Let’s go Wings!
Ferguson deserves a seat in Hell, right between Stalin and Hitler.
Olga – one more game in saint Louie and it’s on to Chicago and let’s win there…
Orr – Rene definitely has a weird vibe…
Pierre & Claude Julien wearing matching suits. How sick and disgusting cute!
Let’s Go Hawks! That was a good first game, now they need a win.
Pierre is Claude’s mini me.
Bruins have Corey Potter & Chad Johnson. Tasting NYR’s sloppy seconds.
Datsyuk is something else. Just fended off three Bruins and maintained control of the puck, setting up a nice chance.
Anybody catch the Gudas/Prust fight? I was watching B’s/Wings
Prust knocked gudas into next week
Non ranger games I got picture in picture going
PK Subban arguing with alternate assistant coach
Gotta wait for hockeyfights to post that fight!
If that Drouin kid is any good, he’ll be a great addition to this team next year. 3rd overall pick
LOL! Rangers fan at this Bolts/Habs game. Probably more.
damn do they miss ben bishop
You know who Tampa misses? I’ll give you a hint, he’s a French Canadian Saint!
ORR, TB also have Connolly. If he pans out too (I haven’t heard much about him), that’s some serious forward talent.
Habs sharks final
That kid Connolly played 68 games in 11-12. Had 4 goals, 15 points. He hasn’t played much since. Only a couple of games.
Tampa could have drafted Jeff Skinner. Blew it!
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.
Or they could have drafted McIlrath :)
Dekeysek holding the nose….sweet.
cmon wings…... shooting wide all night
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.
You married well Manny
Nice to hear Prust is still in good form….but gotta watch Wings and pray
I out kicked my coverage according to Carp, momma.
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
Mrs manny equals greatness
Wings giving bruins fits.
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.
““You ok, dear? You look concerned.””
That guy Franzen is a Mule!
I got Mono twice, now I got stereo.
She loves you too, Eric.
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
Lucic just speared a wing in the onions made them red. Habs going home up 2-0…...pretty good team there
anyone else feel for Callahan and Tampa? (s)
Wasn’t there a rumor Ray Bourque faked some blood in the playoffs, maybe his rookie year?
well TBL sucks…
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.
If you are not wearing Ranger blue, you are part of an invading army.
Lev, I hate Montreal. Sympathy for Tampa won’t extend beyond this series.
That Milan Lucic continues to ooze class.
Saint Looey 1 game, 2 points
Cally 2 games, 0 points
Watching the game on NESN. Apparently, no Bruin has ever committed a true penalty.
Habs gong home up 2-0.
Cally one day closer to buffalo.
Ike goes to Pirates. Who’d we get?
Down 3-0 Tampa goalie change.
I don’t believe results diff first 2 games with bishop. Lindback played well in defeat allowing 5 last game.
This will be Cally’s last playoff run for a while if he signs in Buffalo.
Bye, bye, Tampa! It’s game over/season over
more like a playoff crawl.
wonder if it would be different with Bishop?
It would definitely be different with Bishop in net. They could have won game one, at least.
39-15 outshot in game 1. Lindback made some real big saves in game 1. Tampa overachieved .
Why do I get the feeling this Wings/Bruins game will go to quadruple OT?
Teddy Bear scores!
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!!!
Why the hartnell I am I hearing about Hartnell during this game ….
Though I hope this goes seven and every game goes to OT.
I see Oshie is cashing in on his Olympic success. I’d rather see Oshie commercials than that ugly robot OvechCANT and Backstrom.
Hank doing commercials just what we need
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…
Hank says fast a whole lot in that commercial.
Manny, did you get my e-mail ?
Wings need to win this. They’ve been good
A Malkinstein commercial would be a hoot…
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
Wings game is uber exciting
WHAT A GOAL!
Dat-zook is a magician
What a shot
Sick puck drag!!!
My intestines finally unclenched…..wow!!
damnit i missed the goal—but YUSSS
Datsyuk is good but he’s no Stepan… :)
cmon 1 more min
Schwings players standing on bench watching game… Cool
Don’t ice it pav
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
Datsyuk is pretty good.
Datsooook is no THE KRIEDER.
chara: I CAN SEE FROM UP HERE
SUCK IT BRUINS
Wow! What a win by the Wings. Big win!
They. Deserved this. Had to win this with as good as game they played
Keep having fun!
Butch goring Waldkn. How these two morons get assigned this ducks series.
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…
Butch Goring? You have to be byfuglien kidding me.
Skeletor! Gotta try to limit the amount of times that mug is on camera.
Indeed….ok, time for me to call it a niters here…later all, TA!
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?
All Seguin has to do is not get an assist and I have the revere hat trick for Sioux’s league!
Damn bruins cost me a Hattie
Mama – you need to drop a Rinaldo it seems…,
One down, three to go, and the rangers are going to the finals
Wicky said frank and beans; then
Wicky said crotch
Wicky said head
I just took a rinaldo. It had some seeds in it. I used some nice smelling baby wipes after.
Holy crap, that’s a scary picture of Butch Goring
Ed Koch used to grab his crotch and say, “How’m I doin’?”
Reverse hat trick, that is. Been talking about Slats Revere around here too often, I guess.
What channel is the Vancouver game?
Did Goring just call Maroon a “big tree?”
Chara, Loocheek, and Marchand take their blankets and retire to the totem pole for the evening. Who’s on top?
Watching the Bruins lose is wonderful. Wings beat them and our path to the finals opens wide…
Except for that one pesky team from north of the border, E3.
Hope we play Montreal. Prust can protect Boyler.
Nice spear to the balls by Perry
Goring: “Undisciplinary style of play”
What’s with all the spearings lately?
Goring said he speared him in the “gut area”. I knew Goring was some kind of alien. Only an alien would have balls attached to his stomach!
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
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.
Latona – the boys in the bath houses would have tweeted gleefully had sausage lips scored like that…
Daley doesn’t like Perry!
Daley really doesn’t like perry
Bad turnover by Cole
Latona – yup….
I wish Datsyuk was 10 years younger so he’d be the fact of the NHL.
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.
Goring says that Lindholm is a fan of the Red Wing “Lidster”
He must be before my time!
Can’t deal with Butch Goring on this Anaheim-Dallas game.
I’ll be dropping a nice Rinaldo in peace in about 6 hours when I get up for work tomorrow.
Wonder if Captain Cally gave his ‘Bolts the “no passengers” speech?
First off, DAMN RIGHT THAT DAYTSUK IS NO THE KREIDER!
whoever posted that gets it.
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”
LOLOLOLOLOLOL … WHAT AN ABSOLUTELY MORON-CLOWN
Flyers fans are tools
no joke JR just said that Subban is an ex Vezina trophy winner
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.
Mrs. Quenneville: “Sweetcakes, there’s 25 thousand missing from our checking account. What’s that all about?”
‘Twas I who proclaimed in a former post The Superiority of The Kreider over the highly talented, yet humanly flawed Pavel Datsuik!
