Game 5: Rangers at Penguins … It’s Go Time!

604

Game 5.penguins
Rangers at Penguins.

 

Ya boys are on the brink of elimination. They have been down 3-1 in a series 16 times in their history and have never come to win.

In the history of Stanley Cup best-of-sevens, 21 teams have come back from 3-1 to win a series, including Los Angeles, which became the fourth team to come back from 3-0 when it beat San Jose in the first round last week. That’s 21 out of 231. So it’s possible, at best.

Last year the Rangers  were down 3-0 to Boston, won Game 4 at home, then went quietly in Game 5. In 2011 they were down 3-1 to Washington, then went quietly in Game 5.

Martin St. Louis, whose mother, France, died suddenly on Thursday, returned from Montreal today and will play in Game 5.

Derek Dorsett and John Moore return to the lineup, replacing Daniel Carcillo and Raphael Diaz.

Rick Nash, as you know, has one goal in 23 playoff games as a Ranger.

    Rubbing my fingers across this fresh new post. So smooth, soft and cottony.

  2. Norm Merton on

    Tough on Carcillo, but a good call, I think. Will be interesting to see if a chastised (or dinged) Dorsett finds that edge between hard-nosed and disciplined.

  3. Good evening all!

    Please please plead plead please…..

    Thoughts go out to to the other good Marty.

    It ain’t over til the last horn sounds all…..LGR!!!!

  7. Okay, let’s get this over with, shall we? NO, I don’t want any anaesthesia; it’s only pain; I can handle it.

  8. On behalf of the Blogfather, don’t forget, the Report is open all year round…..

  9. So I take it this must have been the reason for MSL aging 15 years since his trade to the Rangers?

    completely new team along with your 63 year old mother in really bad shape could do that to ya.

  10. Pierre really should be one of the last anything on earth to comment about people’s looks…..

  11. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" We Love MSL!!!"...says Greg L. on

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

    LETS GO LETS GO LETS GO RANGERS!!!!

    Thanks Wickyyyyyyy : )

    Blogmomma TONIGHT is our night!!! We will get this done!!!

  12. Alain Amour on

    Will Bjorn show up when his team needs him?

    Will Nash contribute to the score sheet when his team needs him?

  13. Blogmama, will the Report have “It’s Go Time” World Cup matches in Brazil this June?

  14. Atta boy, Eric. Me too but I think we’ve had this conversation before.

    Let’s just dominate the dojo tonight.

  15. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" We Love MSL!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Yeah Matty but we could make a little wager on tonight game…: )

    RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANGERS are in da HOUWSSSEEEE!!!

  16. Carp, I may have lost my magic powers, but I will always remain mama….:)

  17. First 5 mins could tell if we have any fight. If hemmed in early may get ugly.

  18. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" We Love MSL!!!"...says Greg L. on

    MOMMA MOMMA MOMMA is in da HOUWSSSEEE too!!!!

    LETS GO LETS GO LETS GO!!

    I love games that matter and this one …REALLY matters!!!!

  19. JBytes, you’ll have to talk to dad about that :) He may be too busy having meetings with Mr. T…..

  20. Condolences to St. Louis- that said, I didn’t think he’d let his season end on the low point that was game four for him. Hope he has a good one tonight. Sorry, I’m just too good a handicapper to be fooled into thinking this series isn’t WAY over-

  21. Some really good chances early for us…though that stupid pass by Richie earlier could’ve been disaster.

  22. Looking better than last game so far…….fingers crossed

    Please pleading please please please

  23. Enough with chances can this loser by accident have it go in. Will he ever score

  24. The Rangers Script: buzz for opening ten minutes; have nothing to show for it; give up one; fade to black.

  25. Norm Merton on

    D rotating in very aggressively. Gotta try something new so that’s good, but as always it’s the finishing that’s missing. Great start, no work product, and hard to see how they can sustain this energy. TV timeouts will help.

  26. iManny-O-War on

    I just want everyone to know that I’m on the verge of an emotional meltdown. I’m not necessarily responsible for my actions tonight.

  27. rangersreport

    Lost faceoff, puck right out. That’s how most PPs have started … since January.

  28. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" We Love MSL!!!"...says Greg L. on

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

    THE

    ROOF

    IS

    OFF!!!!!

    RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANGERS!!!!

    THE!!!!

  29. Norm Merton on

    THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE THE !!

    Thanks for the softie Mark Andrew Flower!

  30. @rangersreport

    Rangers 1-1 when they score PPG in the playoffs. Hard to believe that’s happened in just three games now.

  31. Am I asking a lot to get Boyle a freaking break. Another guy who never gets a break

  32. “Rangers 1-1 when they score PPG in the playoffs. Hard to believe that’s happened in just three games now.”

    Indeed – I can’t believe they even scored in three!

  33. iManny-O-War on

    Highlight reel.

    Idiot Pierre calls it the “brilliance of Crosby”

  34. Norm Merton on

    Lundqvist can’t be excellent — he has to be perfect. And with nothing to do this period, he comes up huge on his first dangerous shot.

  35. @rangersreport

    Staal’s having another rough night … of course, 87 and 71 can make you look bad.

  36. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" We Love MSL!!!"...says Greg L. on

    so far so good so good so far so good so far to good

  37. ThisYearsModel on

    They are playing a very good period. Should be up by 3 though. 1 goal won’t win this game but it is a good start. But every time Malkin and Crosby are on the ice it is a heart attack. I think we don’t hit them because we can’t catch them.

  38. “Crosby is way better but Malkin is waaaaaaay more scary.”

    For a long time, I considered Kovalchuk winding up for a slap shot to be the scariest sight in the league.

  39. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" We Love MSL!!!"...says Greg L. on

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

    BRASSARD BABY!!!!

  40. Norm Merton on

    Penguins looking bad. But, you know, for once the Rangers are making them look bad.

  41. @rangersreport

    Pouliot continues to be the Rangers’ best forward in the playoffs. Brassard the best center. Zuccarello best playmaker.

  42. Is it fair to ask where all this desperation was in plenty of other games this postseason? Not complaining though!

  43. I have no choice but to accept it, but I don’t like The Dreaded Two Goal Lead.

  44. Norm Merton on

    Brass wants to keep playing in NY! Either that or he made a good play and scored.

  45. It was only a matter of time until Stupid Pooo did something like that after scoring the goal…

  46. Gregm-section403 on

    Pooylliot takes his 1 stupid penalty per game. Hopefully it is the only one tonight.

  47. Alain Amour on

    Total team effort through one period. That is the Bjorn that I seek.

    No excuses. Just win. Two more periods.

  48. Matty"Rangersin5!!"Boy on

    Well, I am PROUD of these guys!!! Great period!!!!

    Keep it up!!!!

  49. What have they done with the NY Rangers? Who are these players disguising themselves as the NY rangers.

  50. This team, the one with seventeen shots in the first, the one we haven’t seen since the first period of game one. This team should have taken games two and three.

    This team, is a team I could root for.

  51. was I hearing things or was Staal being booed every time he touched the puck?

  52. BickelsPickle on

    #THEKRIEDERISFREE#THEKRIEDERISFREE#THEKRIEDERISFREE#THEKRIEDERISFREE#THEKRIEDERISFREE#THEKRIEDERISFREE#THEKRIEDERISFREE#THEKRIEDERISFREE#THEKRIEDERISFREE#THEKRIEDERISFREE#THEKRIEDERISFREE#THEKRIEDERISFREE#THEKRIEDERISFREE#THEKRIEDERISFREE

  53. _Pouliot continues to be the Rangers’ best forward in the playoffs. Brassard the best center. Zuccarello best playmaker._

    and all three of them make less money put together than Nash. Incredible…

  54. Do you guys miss the Audi MSG 150, the fastest 150 seconds in the National Hockey League (and the NBA)?

  55. BickelsPickle on

    Assuming McD has a SLAP tear, a nice little coristone shot mixed with a do-or-die urgency will do the trick.

  56. Alain Amour on

    I viewed the video of Staal’s two “attacks” and there was no intent on either. That is hockey.

  57. ThisYearsModel on

    Excellent period. Pittsburgh has not begun to bring it yet though. I think we need 4 goals to win this game.

  58. BickelsPickle on

    I do miss the Audi MSG 150, the fastest 150 seconds in the National Hockey League

  59. iManny-O-War on

    Carp: I was trying to figure out who is creepier: Bill Pidtophile it the Sloeman’s Shield guy.

  60. SeeeDubbb

    thank you! and thanks to everyone else who wished a happy birthday to me on the previous thread!

    Also, and you guy probably forgot, is National Vince A Day!

    Europansy unite!

  61. Carp you said he THE can’t keep his left hand on the stick…..right hand :) goal

  62. Carp, no.

    As for where this team was and now is I agree….but I’ll take what I can get when I get it….as a friend of mind always says, a lot of hockey left….

  63. Norm Merton on

    Like a good fielder in a terrible hitting slump, Nash has been great on the PK. Not good enough, but a valuable contribution nevertheless.

  64. Vince A Day? That means somebody like Malkin or Stralman or Hagelin has to score, no? Some pansy.

  65. Good to see them not completely collapsing and playing a solid game so far…different team today…

  66. That French euro canadian pansy Brassard’s scored already… he celebrates Vince A Day in style!

  67. Alain Amour on

    Two Rangers bump into each other in front of the net, then leave Malkin alone and Bjorn hanging out to dry.

  68. Ice completely tilted again. Long change periods kill this team.

    Safe to say Girardi been equally as bad as Mac who’s injured

  69. I find it incredible that Pouliot can take a stupid penalty, changing the momentum of the game, but then makes a terrific play later on to change things.

    Great play by Pouliot on the boards to get the puck to Zucc

  70. Norm Merton on

    Thanks God for Fleury! The Rangers had put in 5 tons of energy for 2 goals, and the Penguins had merely told Evgeny to score. 3-1 is deserved, and it’s time to get Fleury pulled.

  71. Ooh, I thought McGuire was going to say “too many blacks on the ice.”

  72. If they had overturned the correct call, I imagine the NBC/NHL conspiracy theorists would have been out.

  73. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" We Love MSL!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Capt Brassard…sounds goood Carp.

  74. Norm Merton on

    This Power Play is the envy of the NHL. Fleury is not the envy of the NHL. Pull him?

  75. hopefully the rangers score 7 tonight and fluery loses whatever confidence he might have had built up in this series and the rangers get this series to a game 7.

  76. What a great play by Stralman to cause that too many men penalty. Head up, saw the guy hop off early and fired a pass.

    Hope they hold onto this.

  77. Norm Merton on

    So perhaps McD was not as much hurt as slumping. That would be welcome news indeed!

  78. Olga Folkyerself on

    Where did the white towels go? NOW is the time for Pitt fans to surrender.

  79. Hahaha… Sorry to open an old wound, but who didn’t want the Hobbit again??? :)

  80. The only way the Rangers can win this series is if Flower returns. Have to keep scoring this period, get in his head and maybe force a goalie change.

  81. Just like last year, Nash tries the same 3 or 4 weak moves everytime he has a scoring chance and they never work…

    Why can’t he just get to a dirty area and wait for a pass from MSL?

  82. SIOUXper game by MSL on

    Manny a shot of Johnny Walker Blue for every Ranger score!

    Who’s next :)

  83. Norm Merton on

    Really want to see a replay of that. Looked like 2 minutes for defending to the naked eye.

  84. Just think: if Derek Claude Rains Stepan, Nash, and St. Louis could get some kind of game going where the Rangers would be?

  85. Staal with a pretty good shot on Crosby again, Crosby goes back at Brassard, NBC missed the whole bloody thing.

  86. SIOUXper game by MSL on

    4 shots of Blue!

    I finally found something that works :)

    I love this GAME!!!!

  87. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" We Love MSL!!!"...says Greg L. on

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

    Thats the way to defend a lead!!! WTG Staalsie and BOYLE!!!!

    We have heart , grit and passion!!!! The Rangers are in da HOUWWWWWWSEEEE!!!!

  88. Cheap shot on Klein by Niskenin End of period Pitt sportswriters probably missed it

  89. Got Cindy n Gino frustrated, we are boarder line phillyish with the lumber tonight. Did Staal hit Cindy high again at the end of 2?

  90. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" We Love MSL!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Staal sure did smack Crosby pritty hard there but Meathead Malkin came to his aid and gave Staal a good wack .

  91. Alain Amour on

    Total team effort through two periods. Terrific response following the Malkin goal.

    No excuses. Just win. One more period.

  92. Oh you know it just killed Milbury and Jones to say those favorable things about the Rangers.

  93. Brassard gave Cindy a good one across his ankle and Staal hit him high, just lovely, then Cindy gave a cross check to Brassard

  94. so the refs are going to try there hardest to give the pens power plays to make this a game?

  95. SIOUXper game by MSL on

    PIMPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP

    Gotta Love that THE Kreider replay.

    WoW!

    The dive, the rebound, the GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!

  96. ThisYearsModel on

    Have to admit…….Frankenstein is having quite a game.

    Of course, we are all being trolled again getting our hopes up, but I am happy to see them show guts and togetherness like this.

  97. Great effort by Bran Bole, but if he didn’t screw up one (and I think it was two) clears, it wouldn’t have been necessary.

  98. Klein can fight and hit…..I just think he has a real long fuse, maybe it got lit there at the end. Would like to see some ugly out of him in the 3rd

  99. Carp, there is a reason I call it the No Brain Cabal….and yet, the brainless cabals has sports locked up through eternity …sigh

  100. iManny-O-War on

    Jesus. Some of you will never appreciate anything. Boyle is one of a kind man. Heart and soul.

    You don’t just find any guy willing to take pucks off of any part of his body while busting it and sprinting for a full 1:40.

  101. Memo get pucks deep no odd man rushes. Stay out of box and then I need to talk with wife about going Mother’s Day(however according to Greg she cheats on me and my kids hate me)

  102. Love Boyle. He had two chances to get it out before making that fantastic block. Yuuge block!

  103. Boyle is so freakin necessary…and easy to sign. It’s a no brainer.

    *In* *my* *opinion*

  104. @rangersreport

    Does anybody still believe that momentum from game to game exists in the Stanley Cup playoffs? It doesn’t.

  105. Manny, what’s your ISSUE? I clearly said it was a great effort by Bran Bole, but did he not fail to clear the puck twice? Why are you attacking everyone today?

  106. NBC really missed some good nasty stuff at the end of that period.

    .Drinking Norwegian LInie aquavit booze I brought back from last trip. Reminds me of pumpernickel bread.

  107. NYR….oh, that brought me back to my trip with the Wegians…though we had homemade corn muffins with outr shots :)

  108. How about a nice shutdown period like the Pens have been doing to us the last three games?

  109. SIOUXper game by MSL on

    Jesus, Mary, & Joseph ….. my family is making me leave to house to eat out.

    Stick a fork in my eye!

  110. Norm Merton on

    The only momentum you can hope for is Flurry feeding himself a slump.

  111. Olga Folkyerself on

    Momentum certainly can affect the next game. It is just not the ONLY factor to affect a hockey game. Otherwise you wouldn’t need a seven game series. One would do.

  112. Carp maybe not momentum, but doubt and pressure the longer you don’t eliminate a team. Like Sharks and Kings?

  113. If crybaby weren’t a hockey ” star” he’d be begging for coins on 7th ave

  114. Olga Folkyerself on

    Unfortunately, momentum is not measurable like so many grams per cubic meter.

  115. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" We Love MSL!!!"...says Greg L. on

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

    GREAT GAME!!!!! DOMINATION!!!

  116. Olga Folkyerself on

    There are no BIG momentums and LITTLE momentums, there are just momentums.

  117. Carp, do you think it matters how the Rangers finish this game off? Say we give up another goal or 2, but still win. Does that translate to the next game? Or on the other hand, say we play shutdown D and we win having only given up 1 goal. Do you think it makes any difference?

  118. Alain Amour on

    Either put pucks on net or get the puck deep. Don’t shoot i wide and around the boards leading to Penguins breaks.

  119. Norm Merton on

    Don’t need goals. Need boring, responsible close-out hockey. Dump, chase with one, neutral zone turnover, dump… three guys back all the time.

  120. Norm Merton on

    Nice, safe 4×3. Time more important than a goal here, and a shorty would be a disaster.

  121. Carp I agree with you. But thinking of that extreme example. Think there’s a carryover effect in game 7 when you were up 3-0?

  122. Is Doc falling asleep, or are Lundqvist’s saves not as cool as MAF’s when they’re winning?

  123. I think JR is doing my closed captioning. Just saw “Dooinic Moors” on the screen.

  124. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" We Love MSL!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Nash just can’t buy a goal . Poor guy has laid eggs galore. Good news , we don’t need his goals but we need his defense. We’ll talk about the cost later. GO RAAAAAAAAAAANGERS!!!!

  125. iManny-O-War on

    Um. Sorry Pierre but J. Moops has been in two NHL fights and has handily won both.

  126. Olga Folkyerself on

    then why have only five ever won Game 7 after coming back from 0-3?

    Because it’s not easy to do?

  127. unfortunately the rangers are stuck with nick rash. Why would another team want him?

  128. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" We Love MSL!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Crosby is getting a BEATDOWN , hacked , wacked , slashed , hit , poked,pushed and slammed!!!!

  129. Finalllyyyyy

    See you Sunday night.

    Memo to rangers don’t go on road only to lose this at home. Force a 7th.

    Can we play game 6 in pitt

  130. Sioux… You can just sent me a case of stogies.

    Great win and Norm – I sure didn’t mind Dorsett after all

  131. Olga Folkyerself on

    The Dolans get to make a few more millions on Sunday.

    That extends Sather for a few more years.

  132. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" We Love MSL!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Dominic Moore huggin St,Louis after the game there really makes a guy choke up . Dominic losing his wife last year.

  133. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    Give the Broadway Hat to St. Louis and let’s play extra hard on Mother’s Day!

  134. Norm Merton on

    AV the 4th star — picked the right line-up, got McD. going. Changed things up very well.

  135. if the rangers can some how get this series to a game 7, I like the rangers chances.

  136. Olga Folkyerself on

    Give the Broadway Hat to St. Louis and let’s play extra hard on Mother’s Day!

    I better not see any momentum!

  137. Norm Merton on

    I would have picked Miller over Dorsett, Dudley. Somehow I suspect my phone’s never going to ring on one of these NHL coaching vacancies.

  138. That team, the one that played a darn good hockey game. I like a lot.

    Good game plan, good execution and a sprinkle of Fluery.

    We Got A Game Six, People!

  139. gotta believe on

    As much as I can’t stand Crosby that was classy to offer St. Louis condolences in person before game..i give him that

  140. “As much as I can’t stand Crosby that was classy to offer St. Louis condolences in person before game..i give him that”

    Slowly making up for snubbing Lidstrom in the handshake line.

  141. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" We Love MSL!!!"...says Greg L. on

    I voted:

    Brassard

    St.louis

    Boyle

  142. Norm Merton on

    However this series turns out now, at least they can look back at tonight and say they had some stones when it counted. And that so-called third line is one smooth operating unit.

  143. bull dog line on

    poor Eric, they didn’t put him out of his misery. and MrD must be getting worried about that 1st round pick again.

  144. iManny-O-War on

    What a shift that results in a goal by the Wild. Wow. Perfect hockey

  145. bull dog line on

    and that weak ass Garden crowd better be at the top of there game sunday.

  146. I’m trying to figure out a scenario where Nash can come up with a big goal.

    We’ve experienced a couple of different scenarios in the playoffs and he still has zero goals and is not dominating in the least bit.

  147. I thought John G handled the MSL interview very well. Didnt push him and got some quotes for the writers as well.

  148. iManny-O-War on

    I missed the interview. Is there a post game occurring? Who got the hat?

  149. iManny-O-War on

    Quenneville looks like a tank commander that got caught on fire during the battle.

  150. John G was perfect there with MSL, he is a class act. I’m partial friend of mine, great guy.

  151. iManny-O-War on

    @AGrossRecord: AV won’t say this is “first time we’ve really seen McDonagh in the playoffs” but “that’s the way he can play. *He’s not hurt* .”

  152. Stranger Nation on

    AV using mind control on McD
    “repeat after me…you are not hurt, you are not hurt”

  153. @PLeonardNYDN

    Brassard on MSL: “At the airport, we knew he had to go, but I’ll bet you if we could have gone, the whole team would have gone with him.”

  154. Hey…I’d like to welcome back all of you who jumped the ship last few days… Welcome back, losers :)

  155. AV: “McD is not hurt”

    Oh oh…he isn’t hurt, coach says…cyber hockey gurus were wrong! Damn… ;)

  156. Stranger, I tried to find that “waiting for Columbus post again but couldn’t. Any idea when it was?

  157. iManny-O-War on

    Yes. France beat Canada in a Shootout. Guess who Canada’s
    Coach is!?

    Peter The Bore

    Worst Shootout record ever

  158. On the momentum convo. How about yankees and red sox in ’04?

    i know the point carp is making though. Momentum is something that is a short-term thing. You have to be in motion to gain momentum. So if the game ends, so does momentum. Cant be at a stop and hold on to momentum. Thats the physics of it, but it applies to the game as well.

    So yes, but.

    Heres how its works. People’s performance can build and carry over thoughout. Thats something that can string game to game, etc etc. A lot of times what we refer to as momentum is a team or a guy going on a roll or going into a funk. And that can carry over longer stretches. Doubt or Belief that is something that builds, that carries over.

    I loved the way this game played out and the way the team played. Saw things from the penguins that Ive been looking for.

    Although we may not agree with it, I think AV purposely made that comment about mac, having a feeling mac might be the type of player who would up his level. It looked like his shoulder healed overnight, he played with no hesitancy.

  159. Evening all,

    So really, the continuous talk about this team not being tough enough.

    Really?

    Toughness can be displayed in many ways, as it was tonight with the team rallying around MSL for a convincing victory facing elimination on the road.

    Tells you a lot about the character and leadership in their room.

    And bash Nash all you want. Doesn’t matter. There was something bigger going on tonight.

  160. I thought they were gassed. Cool game, 4 hockey hugs w/ my kid because the goals came early.

    “Again, daddy?!?”

    “Yes, honey. Derick did it again. It was as E3 said it would be and it was beautiful.”

  161. Well, I don’t know what happened or if he’s hurt or not but he looked a lot more like McD tonight. A dramatic change, really. Wonder why?
    Do you think being called out by the coach did that? If so AV should start every presser by saying McDonough sucks.

  162. (First sentence meant to be the concession about my earlier concession. I might have held out 20% hope for tonight if that.)

  163. iManny-O-War on

    McDonagh also looked good in Game 7 against Philly

    That’s awesome, Doc. That’s the stuff to live for

  164. iManny-O-War on

    McDonagh was not able to play for long enough that we know he has an injury.

    See Dubb – not sure where or when it was. think it was around the Lumbus game when Nash proved he can play like he had a pair if he cares enough

  166. Manny, wife bought me a bottle of JURA 10yr for bday last week…gotta save it for Sunday, never had it? Any good?

    I haven’t NYR56. You will have to be our taste buds and opinion so to speak…

  168. Coos, would have liked McD’s game tonight. Maybe he went to a hotel bar in London?

  169. jpp, if it was momentum in Yankees-Red Sox, how come that never happened before or since?

    Yankees pitchers got clobbered from Game 1 in that series, and their hitters couldn’t out-hit their poor pitching.

    Hawks are playing too loose for my taste. They’re relying on Crawford too much.

    You’re giving “momentum” too much credit. There ARE other factors in any sporting contest. Doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist…

  173. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" We Love MSL!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Hey…I’d like to welcome back all of you who jumped the ship last few days… Welcome back, losers :)

    —————————————————

    whoa talk about rubbin it in birthday boy!!!!!! YEAH!!!

    Carp too , 5 games , hmmmmmphht Just think the guy watches our team all year and only says 1 game?

    Yeah CCCP last thread I sang ya happybday!!!

  174. Team showed more emotion tonight than they have all season. They have to keep those emotions in check again on Mother’s Day.

    Zucc and Kreider were both very, very good. McDonagh broke through and played amazing despite something still wrong with him (even if the coach doesn’t admit it)

    Brassard impressed me tonight with his game and comments after.

    That tweet about Brass being the first NYR since Graves with 2 GWG in a playoff series….WOW!

  175. Im more asking what your opinions on it? If you think that may have been a case where their was momentum..

    I dont remember it well enough to say. But its one of the series that come to mind
