I wish I could avoid the carbs, Doc. But I can’t turn down MAC N CHEESE!
Also, Doc. Did you see your picture in the Beard Contest?
The point is, ladies and gentle men, that being tied 1-1, for lack of a better word, is bush-league. Bush-league is the right word choice, bush-league works. Bush-league clarifies, cuts through and captures the essence of the situation. Bush-league, in all of its forms; bush-league in goal, on the power play, for perimeter play, for embellishment has marked the downward surge of this series. And bush-league, you mark my words, will not only take down the Rangers, but that other malfunctioning corporation called the NHL.
Luongo is the host of the NHL awards…
I clicked; I clicked. AV on ZZZQuil?

Mrs. Manny on Paulina Gretzky: “she has a great body but she looks like used goods”
Let her amass 215 points in one year, then she’ll have something to talk about.
Paulina to Dustin Johnson: “My daddy had almost 3,000 points!”
Johnson: “That’s Sooooo Yesterday!”
The idiots on Twitter blaming Hank for the loss are making me insane.
Fun fact: Wayne and Paulina have combined for the most points by a father-daughter tandem in NHL history.
Blackhawks fans might be worse than Philly fans:
I don’t blame hank, i just wish he coulda stolen a game for us when we got ahead.
I keep getting stuck in moderation:
Wayne Gretzky and my cat have combined for the most points by a human-feline tandem in NHL history
Happy Patriots’ Day!
I would gladly reuse those used goods, if Mrs FaT Guy gives me a Hall Pass
Anyways, I can’t get that link to work and post but the Blackhawks fans made T-Shirts that say:
link approved … above, Manny.
Rob and I have combined for the most uses of the word tandem by a blog tandem in blog history.
Thanks, Carp. Sorry. I just wanted people to be very, very angry at the Blackhawks fans.
not your fault, something in the coding that kicked it to spam, Manny.
Jeez, freakin neanderthals.
Blackhawks should be ordered to change their name to PozyHawks.
New AV video above. Click early and often. Please!!! :)
Accepted scientific fact now that ‘we’ cohabitated (for lack of a stronger term) with Neanderthals. Genes still running around. Play ‘Can You Spot Them?’
@PuckPodcast Two games into the playoffs and Jonathan Quick’s GAA is 7.20. His SV% is .824. Woof! Seems like a typo but it’s not.
Clicked twice, will click again. The old lady is more interesting than ‘ZZZQuil’ A. Vinegar.
Manny dissing home-bred boy? Who’s next, Matt Harvey?
Lucic, Neil, Marchand just joined “Can You Pick Out the Neanderthal” Contest.
Easy. I’m not dissing him. I was just surprised by those numbers.
:) jokey, jokey
Got the Kings advancing to the WCF. That pick is looking snazzy.
McD tired of taking sticks to the face. Somebody better retaliate soon.

Daddy: “So challenge them to a sand trap contest.”
Wakey Wakey is funny if its not referring to a guy being knocked unconscious on a potentially life altering cheapshot.
Yea. It’s funny if it’s a line from Ben Stiller’s Starsky & Hutch.
I don’t blame Hank and I have always said he’s the best we’ve had. But he had to stop that Voracek goal.
Lots of rationalizing on this board today. That was a bad loss on many levels.
CARP, do you think THE will make an appearance in this series?
Ben Stiller is not funny. Ever.
If Montreal had home ice throughout the playoffs, they could win the cup. Espo lost it last night on the Tampa radio. He said that there is “no way a Frenchman referee should be assigned to a playoff game in Montreal.” The call was disgraceful for sure. The lack of accuracy on the part of linesmen lately is a concern. They screwed up a call robbing PA Parenteau of an empty netter the other night, and Minnesota came right back and scored to make the game 3-2. Then they hosed Stamkos out of breakaway last night.
No, Miami …. It doesn’t appear he will.
Then I guess we’ll only see THE next season.
Miller for Fast.
Don’t think Miller is in the equation. It’s Fast or Carcillo. I could be wrong though.
Kreider is missed.
if it is Fast or Carcillo, give me Carcillo.
I posted this in response to Papa’s bear comment on the last thread. Thought I’d forward it on.
One of the analysts (Maloney?) said wrist shots off the rush from the Blueline with no one screening or going hard to the net for rebounds wont cut it. He’d like to see Nash use his speed, back the D in and carry the puck towards the scoring areas.
Dead on Papa Bear.
Check out the angle Nash attacks the net at. When he’s non-engagement Nash, its always to the outside post, which basically means he’s conceding that area of the ice to the defender and the goalie. So by the time he’s at the net he’s always at a bad angle and sweeps around the net or lets off a bad angle wrist shot.
When he’s engaged. He can pull off the same move Voracek did, bc with his speed and skill goalie flinch when you come right at them.
But Im telling you , I said it to my father last March, if Nash didn’t come to the Rangers willing and wanting play that way from the get-go, how are you gonna teach that to an established 29 year old star. And to expect he’s gonna play like that after these concussions, knowing his demeanor is delusional.
The team is in the middle of the playoffs, so I won’t say right now what needs to be done. But ask me when the season ends, and I’ll tell you the Rangers best course of action going forward. Ill hint at it, its being pro-active with a personnel decision.
And my opinion Carp, Nash is not the guy I want throwing bad angle shots from the boards on the blue-line. To me, he of the mindset, where he’ll just do that all day long and then say to himself, I’m doing the right thing, look at the number of shots, maybe one will go in.
The rangers need Nash with the mindset of Im going to put the puck in the net. Period.
I feel like Nash like Richards is too easily content.
I’m kind of leaning towards Carcillo at this moment…
I personally don’t see what difference Carcillo makes in this series unless you get one of those three-goal lead/linebrawls and he happens to be out there. He will slow down Richards and Hagelin even more, IMO. But he’s not a terrible player. It just hasn’t worked with him playing up a line. Same for Dorsett.
Well I would move up Dorsett. Carcillo would replace Dorsett on the 4th line.
As I said earlier, I think Fast has been fine and I don’t see a reason to pull a panic move and switch the lineup. But Carcillo is an experienced player and maybe might pop a goal in a tight checking game.
and AV might be thinking, too, that after a loss and going into Philly, just a change would be good, especially one that could cause some havoc.
JPP @ 3:31 … appreciate the words of support.
Maybe I’m not such a moron after all!
BTW, using the term “dead on” when referencing a guy my age could be a bit disconcerting, but not in this case.
Keep on Truckin, JPP.
Why is Miller even up here? If he’s not playing, he should be in the AHL. He’s a pretty important player down there. Can’t have both Fast and Miller. Send one down!
Me thinks CarBong will play a physical, banging game and possibly get Simmonds off his game and focused on chasing the car bong. Simmonds seems like the kind of guy who is waiting to erupt. He is the main guy on that squad who really can inflict damage. Schenn can be a physical player
The other supposed Flyer tough guys are who??? Hall? Read? Vorachek? Akeson? Vinny? Hartnell? Raffl? Couturier? please
Going on record to say Jay Roo is one of the cheapest players in the league and the refs let him get away with a lot of BS last game.
Nash is a wuss, but we all knew that already.
For me, the decision comes down to, who will be the most effective on the forecheck, Carcillo, Miller or Fast???
And, if its a tie, Carcillo get your skates on.
SN, when Ja Roo tried to choke out McDonuts, wouldn’t it have been nice if AV told Dorsett “it’s going to be a long series. Send the message back. Go get Ja Roo.”
It’s gonna be a lot harder to do in Philly because Berube has last change.
Should’ve happened yesterday.
Protect your superstars.
I said the night Toews got leveled by Orpick and there was no response by his mates, the Hawks will not win the Cup this year. Clean hit or dirty, his mates should have responded by at least running Crosby through the boards.
Manny 3:57. – exactly.
Good point, ORR.
I’d rather have Dubi than Nash pumping 65 foot wristers from the blue line.
Visiting this blog is mandatory for Ranger Boneheads
I’d be totally fine if Carcillo never dresses for us again. He didn’t do anything really embarrassing during his half season and that’s good enough for me.
I’m Paying Attention Papa
Atta Boy, Manny!
Mr. D, I’ll be totally fine if we win the series, regardless of who is dressed and who is not dressed.
Heck, I’d be fine with you dressing if we win the series.
Honestly, strictly from a NYR point of view, I think we’re lucky to be tied 1-1. Both games were “dogs”- Rangers can play much better (I also thought the Flyers were better than this). This may not be the worst played series of all- but its been in contention. Lets see what happens on the road- any truth to the rumor that NBC wants to move game 5 to a 9 AM start in order to insure we get a high skilled thriller in front of truly rockin’ house?
“I feel like Nash like Richards is too easily content.”
It seems to me he became content after the head shots. I’m not defending him because I think he would have to take it up a notch to reach wuss status. But when he first came to NY he was a dip your shoulder and take it to the net type forward and in the first month a really decent two way guy. Since that first concussion last year, not so much.
And Giroux needs to be dealt with for choking our boy McD. The best would be a graves like two hander to his bean but I’ll settle for sending him to the golf course of his choice while we game plan for Lumbus.
Seeing Dubi drive to the net and drawing a penalty and constantly going to high-traffic areas while Nash just hangs around the perimeter is pretty frustrating. As the analysts said on Saturday, he is a “gamer” in the playoffs. If Nash possessed Dubi’s work ethic and intensity, he would be a force in the playoffs.
Nah, Papa. You’d never hear the end of it if I did.
If there was a hypothetical forward with Nash’s skill and size and Dubinsky’s drive, I’d trade two solid forwards, a D prospect and a 1st round pick, even if that hypothetical forward got paid $7.8MM per.
I agree. I think Nash got totally rattled after getting multiple head injuries. That’s why I want to play Dorsett with him. To give him the feeling of protection.
You mean….EVANDER KANE
If Nash played like he did against Columbus in every single game, I’d take him over Dubinky hands down!
Agree, ORR. I think that makes it worse because you see what could be on a nightly basis instead of once in a while.
Exactly! Not just the way he played on the ice, but the emotion he showed on the bench. I’ve never seen him so pumped up after a win. I loved it then, but now it just pisses me off.
Pretty much why I never hustled in softball. If you do it once, they know you’re capable of it and they’ll only get madder when you don’t.
Wait. Why would they send Miller down. Did the Whale even make the playoffs?
Lol, Mr. D. Plus you get paid the same either way…
LOL. Seriously. I posted that asking if the Whale made the playoffs, which they couldn’t have with their adysmal record. At that exact moment I get a “Thanks for your support” e-mail from the Hartford Whale saying “SEE YOU OCT 18!”
Nash’s “hustle” during the Olympics and the way he was able to turn it on against Columbus are reasons why I feel attributing his long bouts of poor play and invisible ice presence during the last two years to a concussion is a stretch. He has had some really good games during sprinkled in, usually against weaker teams. Why doesn’t it affect him during those games?
He is what he is….a highly paid consistently inconsistent perimeter / rush / solo player that has great skill and size. His effort level is disappointing most nights and for a “superstar” he doesn’t seem to make any of the players his plays with better.
He had a couple of chances to “be the man” late in yesterday’s loss and he didn’t get it done.
Ok, just caught up…WOW
From the review thread…
Wtf is wrong with some of you? How in any contrived state of inebriation did zuc get voted the first star by the blog?
You guys should not be allowed to vote any more?
Are we basing his first star on how far Simmonds was dragging him up the ice while zuc clutched his leg??
Lmao, you have no business voting anymore!!
I did the same when I used to play basketball for my school years ago. I was pretty good on offense, but I didn’t like the pressure, so I intentionally missed every time so nobody would pass to me. I scored zero points that year. Last game of the season my coach told me to stay down the court so when my teammates get the ball, they can roll it down to me and I can finally score. I missed two layups with no defense around me.
I was amazing on defense though.
I thought someone here said they did make the playoffs, but looking at the schedule, I guess they missed!
They missed out by 9 points. Losers! Trade some of these guys for a 2nd round pick!
Little article in NY Times on line under Sports/hockey about Dorsett. Medicine Hat Team psychologist, Saul Miller, asks each player to consider ‘what animal would define the qualities that you want to project while on the ice?’ Dors, (of course,) said Tiger.
Anyone here interested in compiling what answer each of our 2014 Rangers would give to Miller? I’d like to read it.
Actually a taxi squad will be coming up soon … just a bunch of guys who will practice and be ready in case this run gets like ‘97.
We need THE back pronto.
Richards is a horse (too easy?)
Pullout is a donkey
Taxi squad? Some of those guys will have to live in homeless shelters in Manhattan
Zuc=blow fish (I think that’s what they are called)
:) Step, the Gentle Sasquatch.
I am not exactly sure what it is Fast does, or has done, that warrants him being in the line up. I agree with Carp that Carcillo with Richards does not work, which is why I would play Miller there. but if he is not an option, I would prefer someone who can stir it up like Carcillo, than someone who is just kind of there, like Fast.
Brass=koala bear (they hug a lot right?)
Hags: Pretty Pretty Pony
Talbot: Large baby in Kangaroo’s pouch.
Nash = Ollie the Ostrich
Zucc = Cabbage Patch Doll
Boyle a Rhino? I don’t think they fall down that easily.
Chara: Timmy the Giant Turtle
Hagelin = “Bang Bang Bang, Ricochet Rabbit”
Staal: Giant Stick Insect
I didn’t think they could turn well lol
Easy, they’re all dogs. Unless they win tomorrow, then they’re gazelles and lions.
But Nash would be a sloth.
Richards = My Little Pony
GREAT answers, class!
Hags – Tinkerbell
Love the word ‘sloth.’
It really doesn’t get enough play.
Carcillo: G.I. Joe
‘that’s not an animal.’
“The way I do it, it is.”
Ground Hog, comes out once a year.
McIlrath = 1st round bust dog
Blocked-up shower drain leaders, 2013-14 – Hags, Carcillo, Topo, Boyle.
Talk about advanced stats.
gross weight of hair removal
Hags: .00421 oz
CarProblems: .00419 oz
Topo: .00417 oz
Boyler: .00412 oz
Based on stats, Vidal Sasoon hockey blog says Hags should play with Carcillo. Elton John blog agrees, but the reasoning is obscure.
Maybe Zucc can pick it up next year.
It should be noted that Boyler’s hair was deemed heavier per strand by thickness, but not by length/volume.
Kenneth Albert & Pierre McPenis with the call for that game.
Pierre just said Columbus is “hard on”
Love Kenny he did 3 games in 3 days baseball in Detroit rangers columbus
Jackets need this one create more doubt.
These guys never won a home playoff game. They should be fired up beyond belief.
I just hope Dubi drives his stick into Crosby’s lower back upwards of thirty times tonight.
Half the crowd will be Penguin fans, as usual in CBus.
Fans not sitting down. LOL! You’d never see that at the Garden.
2-0 Jackets! Hahaha
It’s amazing the Pens won a Cup with Fleury. Amazing!
Wow this insane.
Pierre sounds a bit worried about his Pens.
BJ’s 2 Pen()s 0
LOL! What BS. Orpik doesn’t get called for an obvious board behind the net, PIT comes up the ice, and immediately gets a PP.
Columbus could be a really cool place to play if that team becomes good.
Jackets royally fugged up all those top 10 picks in the draft. Zherdev, Filitov, Voracek, Picard, Brule, Leclaire, Brassard, Klesla.
Those are a lot of busts.
Hmm, Crosby hasn’t shown up for these playoffs yet.
i like it
That shot by Skille had more velocity than anything Nash has put on Emery.
Going to find it greatly amusing if all of those rooting for Columbus now get their wish and then they bounce us from the next round.
We would have an easier time against the pens, so
Latona @ 7:24
You could say that again.
I would play Columbus 10 times out of 10 instead of the Penguins.
Haha, I love it when the Penguins struggle.
I’d rather NYR lose to Columbus than Pissburgh. That’s for sure.
Wicky – We Still want Columbus to bounce Pittsburgh
I hate the Pens.
>>I would play Columbus 10 times out of 10 instead of the Penguins.
Make that eleven times out of ten for me.
Interestingly enough, I just couldn’t bring myself to rooting for the Islanders during their series against Penguins.
Getting ahead of myself here,
but if Pens lose in first round,
Bylsma and Fluery…....
I would mind the Rangers going out in round 2 to Columbus a lot less than seeing them go out against Pittsburgh.
I hate Penguins.
I find Joy when Pittsburgh loses, and if a young team like Columbus is finding their first success in the playoffs it’s even better if it’s against the Penguins.
Pierre McPenis is definitely worried about his Penguins.
I hate penguins.
Artie Party in the penalty box
Next team that scores wins this game.
Is this thing on?
Penguins are just letting the Jackets wear themselves out; they’ll then take over with their offensive power.
Wow, interesting take from you guys.
I love my team more than I hate any team, but ok.
I hope you guys are right, about an easier match up for us against the jackets than the pens (if the jackets and rangers win).
Wild dominating the Avs but can’t beat Varlamov.
Refs are now in Penguins must win mode.
Love how Kenny said that: “Penguins handed their third power play of the period.”
NYR vs Jackets would be more fun to watch also, in my opinion.
Wow, that’s a holding penalty??
Too many men for Pittsburgh.
Counting the refs, they have eight.
Is BOB outplaying Hank?
just as long as the Rangers don’t advance past the 2nd round, that would be bad, it doesn’t matter who they lose to. don’t want to give up that 1st round pick according to some real knowledgable Ranger fans who think playoff runs happen all the time.
I can’t believe how blatently obvious Penguins ref favoritism is. Might as well just say it publicly. It’s not like they hide it one bit.
Varlamov should win the Vezina this year, but he won’t Rask will.
Neal is Bagscum.
The more you watch Dubi play, you want him back as a Ranger don’t you?
LET’S GO DUBINISIMOV!
Neal will do something dirty besides dropping the gloves. He’s the coward type.
Jackets hockey has onions.
What makes you think the Pens are a better matchup for NY than Columbus?
Neal is Bagscum.
Wicky did you shave you Mohawk for the playoff run?
NBCSN just wrote “Fluery struggling early”. I guess they’re struggling with his name.
NBCSN hit a home run having Tappen on tonight.
Jackets Hockey has Dubinsky!
Less physical and maf rounding into form.
Forgot the (s) re MAF
I guess the answer would be goaltending Olga. I don’t see Pitt as a better match up either.
Now it’s on to Chicago and let’s win there…
Keith Jones: “Neither goal should of went in.” Good grief, I’m glad I’m not learning English grammar from that guy.
I’m not buying at any price that the Rangers would be better off playing Pittsburgh than Columbus.
Jones literally could of cared less for all intensive purposes.
You know who’s a Norris worthy defenseman?
Yeah right, guy watches more hockey than I do.
Whoa, Heatly is still in the league?
LeTang had a stroke 3 months ago and he’s back playing NHL playoff hockey?
He deserves some sort of trophy, for sure.
Hahaha!!! Classic line, Carp! I’m saving that one for future use, for sure.
Playing Pittsburgh instead of Columbus are you guys drunk.
Jones is in Insentive care? What hospitell?
Does being negative all the time also affect your reading comprehension?
True Papa, still though, he’s a spectator, frequently.
Refs have money on this game.
Refs are doing their best to get Pittsburgh back into this game?
Another questionable penalty in penguins favor
Refs must think these Columbus guys are real dangerous dudes.
Penguins averaging one out of every three minutes of this game on powerplay
4 pp for pens nine for jackets. Another reason u don’t want play pens.
Slash …..break stick…..no call.
Brian Boyle update
I fear for the Jackets. Two goals won’t be enough to beat Pittsburgh.
Too many men …..no call.
Little boreale just checked in….
“What’s the score”
“Hang in there Columbus”. Clap clap clap
Raising him right
Jokinen flapping his jaw at Johnson. He’d be quiet as a mouse if the ref wasn’t between them.
Ice is tilting a bit tho. Columbus needs a gimme from MAF
less pass – more shoot
Happy Dyngus Day, Carp!
Wild swarming as if they were the Gerbils in the last minutes of the game, but can’t break through.
Is Malkin’s bionic knee acting up? He hasn’t been his typical Monster self.
Anybody see Cooke injure Barrie with a knee on knee hit. During the first period Bordeleau warned Cooke.
Someone needs to pull a Seabrook on him
Gee, you can’t even snow-shower a goalie in today’s NHL.
Wow! What pathetic officiating.
Is it me or has Crosby become less chatty on the ice ever since his jaw was shattered.
Nice freaking call are u kidding me
There goes dirty James Neal. Fuggin loser!
Neal a freaking dirtbag. Man needs a beat down.
Cheeses K. Reist! Can the refs get anymore blatantly biased?
This is a Joke, the refs should be benched!
Wild swarming as if they were the Gerbils in the last minutes of the game, but can’t break through fleeing Richard Gere’s habitrail.
April 21st, 2014 at 8:30 PM
Not sure what that means, but Happy Dyngus Day to you, Sally!!
Crosby slow to get up here….
Columbus wins this period!!!
I am rooting SO HARD for the BJs.
When you coming back to the big town?
Kenny Albert with a little TMI on Johnson / Sydney boy-love.
LOL! Can’t here Pierre over the fans chanting.
From the Dyngus Day capitol of the world.
Hmmmm, never mind.
C’mon, Jackets, you fuggers
Carp! May! Boss lady is taking me to Sandoony’s and I’m sooooo excited.
That’s horse manure
What a freakin’ Shame!
That goal is going to HURT.
.7 seconds are you kidding me?
Are u freaking kidding me
Why don’t these idiots just bury the puck in the corner and kill the time off? Instead they cough it up and then give up a goal.
Also, it’s a work trip. But we’re going to Sandoony’s!
Cool. Hope I’m in NYC that day.
Let’s Go Black Hawks!
Don’t worry, dudes. Dubinsky’s got this.
Ledge on behalf of the jackets. Empathy ledge
I don’t think I’m leaving Brooklyn in May. But then I’ll be back in October for my birthday and also for someone to take me to a Rangers game. HINT HINT.
Toews! 1-0 Good Guys
Nice save miller putz
Piece of Cooke:
That puck had eyes!
That’s why you put ‘em on net!
Brooklyn’s in NYC.
Blues vs Blackhawks is pure WAR!
Barrie is out for the game.
Brooklyn’s kinda different, IMHO. But wanna come to Sandoony USA with me & boss lady? Or to a lecture on low-intervention obstetrics? Hey, where’s ilb?
Barrie could be out for the year, if that tore his knee apart.
Cooke needs a shovel to the head, after that.
Wow Matt Cooke is back, eh?
NBC sucks when it comes to the camera.
So let me see if I have this right. We drafted Mclrath when Tarasenko was sitting there for us?
They’re lurking about, Sally!
If they knew you were here …
Sally, I like Mermaid Spa in Sea Gate and Russian Bath House (on Neck rd) a bit more than Sandoony. But a Russian bath house is a Russian bath house so you cant really go wrong. Plus the food.
FIRE SATHER! Papa
Hi Lev! Thanks I will pass those along to boss lady! Our Schvitz in Buffalo is both amazing and a little gross, so pretty much anything else will be so exciting. I’m happy to go any place where women are allowed!
Big period for jackets here
And EVERY Scout IN THE WORLD was at the WORLD JUNIOR U18 game, was McIlrath skating for Cananda – NOPE. Not even the top 6 D for Cananda.
Tarensenko tore up the ice, in the USA vs RUSSIA game. Clearly the best forward on the Ice that tournament. He should have went in the top 5. (I’m guessing they didn’t want to take another Russian – but still).
Buzzing….can penguins buzz?
Dubinskys got this someone said (Sally)
WHAT DID I TELL YOU GUYS?
Dubi over Nash anyday. Everyday!!!!!!!
That’s how you start a period! Wooo hooo!
Dubi with Cindy coasting back nice. How about it NBC?
Wow. Penguins d just isnt
Fugg, missed the goal!
Did he direct it in with his glove???
Also,someone’s observation about Malkin being invisible spot on this far
Brandon Dubinsky the puck goesinsky!!!
Seeing the replay papa I’m surprised they didn’t review it
Umberger tackled. No call.
I Hate Penguins.
Overrated d-men scoring for the Pens
Who is that Richard Martin?
Get it back Columbus!
I Hate Penguins..
Luckily they don’t play d. Hopefully they give it right back
I Hate Penguins….
It was loud in ohio.
Oh snap! Tie game!
Two goal leads are never safe in the playoffs.
Timeout?!? Coaches use them?
What are those?
This would be such a heart breaking loss
Shoot me now.
You have absolutely have to be kidding me
Hawks getting sloppy.
Jackets are done in this one.
This is legitimately horse manure
Series over. Not recovering.its been a lopsided game most of the night
BOB is overrated. Fact!
4 dead in Ohio
Bobrovsky imploded again.
Tin soldiers and the pens are coming, the jackets are finally on their own. What if you knew Bob and saw him dead on the ground?
Come on BJs! You can still do it! Everybody hate the penguins. Destroy them!
Another 2 goal lead pissed away :(
Elliotte Friedman ?@FriedgeHNIC 2m
Bobrovsky 50-plus saves in a row, then four goals on 12 shots.
Anyone have Barrie link.
Minnesota should have used Kuemper in the last two games. Maybe then the series would at least be tied
This COL-MIN is one of the best I’ve seen in a long time. Really exciting!
Guess you missed Matt Cooke’s knee on knee that knocked Tyson Barrie from the game.
Gotta score here jackets
Kenny Albert sure does bring up NYR a lot.
That was an atrocious hit by Cooke, ThisYearsModel, but it doesn’t mean the game hasn’t been a good one.
That was weak!
“Tin soldiers and the pens are coming, the jackets are finally on their own. What if you knew Bob and saw him dead on the ground?”
How can he make a save when you know? Ohio..
Next goal in the Colorado-Minnesota match will be the winner.
I didn’t pick the Jackets to get 4 tonight.
I guess I’ll have to give up my hatty. I would rather see them win.
Jackets are giving this game away!
What a stupid penalty.
Lousy penalty to take
Jackets don’t recover lose in 5.
EVERYTHING ABOUT THE PENGUINS IS HORRIBLE.
As much I’d love to see it happen, Columbus are not going to beat Pittsburgh in a seven match series.
It’s official. The two goal lead is the kiss of death. Must get three goal lead tomorrow ASAP.
Did he slash Gino in the chin? Upper arm? Or forearm?
Jackets coach looks like so many people I went to,HS with….weird
That was is going to leave a mark
Holy hell, Dubinky almost had it. What a play
That was a huge byfuglien bummer.
Nof Uckin luck.
What a move dubi all for nothing. That’s as bad as it gets.
Great effort by Dubi at the end…
Can’t believe that last chance missed
BOB shat the bed
Sally, you and boss lady are obgyns?
This MN Colorado game going to OT.
What the hell is micheletti doing in Dallas.
Bickels, boss lady is. I do everything but medical things & billing. Boss lady is uhhmazing.
Probably visiting his daughter, Eric
Fox Sports guys talking how valuable Cooke is to MN.
What a bunch of Jackwagons!
Have to see if Parise can get a goal and get the Wild into this series.
Parise vs Malone. Sioux vs Sioux.
He is a pretty valuable player, Sioux. Great on the PK. Physical. Can pop a goal in here and there. Definitely the kind of guy I’d want on my team if he wasn’t such a piece of garbage cheap shot artist.
Neiderreiter for the Wild
O’Reiley for the Avs
I agree, but if that knee shot would tear Barrie’s MCL, he should sit for the rest of the year, if he ended another players career/playoffs.
What a move by granuland
FUGG! I was going to pick Granlund. Should have stuck with my instincts!
What a goal! This kid’s gonna be a great player – reminds me of Saku Koivu.
Huge win for the Wild.
Kuemper > Universe.
What a GOAl by GRANLUND!
Goal of the playoffs so far!!!
Now lets see if Dallas can come up with big win at home. Hawks too
Back to the Parise / Oshie show!!!
Where was the roofed backhander from the slot by Dubi on the last rush…........?
Or Johanson crash the net from the right wing….....?
Tyson Barrie will miss 4-6 weeks with MCL injury
Wow! That’s such a goddamn fuggin shame. Lets see what the NHL pu$$ies do
There must be some mistake. Matt Cooke is reformed. He couldn’t possibly…
Once a piece of Cooke, always a piece of Cooke…
that Robidas injury looked really bad and painful
Hawks setting themselves up for another last minute goal against. Better get that second goal
I was afraid to say it ORR
That would be crazy if it happens again. Tree straight games. Unheard of!
how did we not trade for ott?!?
We can always overpay for him this summer.
Cause Sather is a Mo Ron.
Finally one goes our way!
Crawford finally gets the job done
Sweet Home, Chicago!
Dave Strader calls a good game.
I like Strader. Good play by play guy!
Goddamn, what a shot. 2-0 Dallas
Double 5-hole on that goal
Anson Carter talking about the Cooke knee on Barrie …”A Hockey player never goes into a hit trying to injure the other player.”
Anson, Are you for real?
Dallas Stars have The Dreaded Two Goal Lead. They’re in trouble now.
Getzlaf getting tough with the jaw protector on. LOL!
This series is NASTY! I love it!
Ducks get a PP out of that? Getzlag threw the first punch
Head scratching NHL on ice officiating.
These NHL referees are worse than those in the English Premier League.
All of the series in the West are NASTY. So different from the hockey played in the East.
To be honest Flyers-Rangers hasnt been nasty either. And that’s really good news for us.
Tough break for Robidas. He’s a classy guy.
Very lucky refs have been rushing to break up scrums in our series except when Hartnell mounted Moops and punched him with a gloved hand in the face
Tyson Barrie had been a force for Colorado the last few months. Now he is out for 2 months while Minnesota loses Matt Cooke for a game or 2. He is their only puck moving Dman. How proud the NHLPA and Wild must be to have this clown employed…..the reformed Matt Cooke.
So how did the jackets pens game end up?
It looks like an evening-out day…
eff you Matt Cooke.. nothing to do with hockey… that pisses me off
