Game 6: Penguins at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 6.penguins
Penguins at Rangers.

 

Happy Mother’s Day!

I’ll be honest. On Wednesday I didn’t think we’d be doing “It’s Go Time!” today. Neither did most of youse.

For only the fifth time in their history, the Rangers won  a Game 5 to force a Game 6 after being down 3-1 in a playoff seires. They’ve been down 3-1 in 16 series, and the last time they forced a Game 6 was 1982 against the Islanders, which they lost. This was the first time in the last eight series in which they trailed 3-1 that the Rangers got it to Game 6.

Only once have the Rangers forced a seventh game in such a situation — in 1939 they actually trailed Boston 3-0 in the semifinals, won three in a row, then lost Game 7 in triple-0vertime.

Just in case … the Rangers have won their last four Game 7s. The Penguins are 2-6 in Game 7s.

The Rangers are also 8-2 in their last 10 elimination games. In those games, Henrik Lundqvist has a 1.38 goals-against average and a .953 save percentage.

As you know by now, Alain Vigneault rarely, if ever, changes his lineup after a victory, so expect the same 18 skaters from Game 5, meaning J.T. Miller, Daniel Carcillo, Jesper Fast, Raphael Diaz and Justin Falk are prucha’d.

The Penguins will be without defensemen Brooks Orpik (mystery injury).  Defenseman Olli Maatta (believed to be ill) did skate in warmups. Otherwise, Deryk Engelland, who hasn’t played in the playoffs (his last game was April 12) was expected to suit up.

    I have a strange feeling that Evgeny has told the rest of the flightless waddlers to show up tonight. Will the Rangers be able to pick up where they left off and shoot intelligently at Markandrayflury? Will Björnhenrik Lundqvist be perfect? My knickers are officially in a twist.

    Marc Andre Fleury Marc Andre Fleury Marc Andre Fleury Marc Andre Fleury Marc Andre Fleury Marc Andre Fleury Marc Andre Fleury Marc Andre Fleury Marc Andre Fleury Marc Andre Fleury Marc Andre Fleury Marc Andre Fleury Marc Andre Fleury Marc Andre Fleury. Getting those out of my system so the announcers don’t annoy me (or Coos) as much.

  11. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Ranger goal, his third of the game and 6th of the playoffs, number 16, Derick Brassard.

  12. Question for all of you…

    Carp, chuck norris, and Katie Strang all survive a plane crash, but only 2 get to make it out. Who makes it out?

    My guess is carp and Katie, no way carp misses out on the opportunity for quality time with Katie. Carp eliminates chuck norris in a quick fight.

  13. Norm Merton on

    Will our second and third lines pick up the Brassard line tonight? Some of them can play, right?

  14. Good evening all!!

    LGR!!!!

    Please please please pleading please please.

    Carp, address the ball. hello ball….

  15. I have a bad feeling if we win tonight, they will be emotionally spent and go out meekly in game 7

  16. wow!!! garden has no electric atmosphere. Garden sounds like a funeral broke out.

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

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

    MARTYYYYYY!!!!

  18. The ref was against the boards had no place to go, all step had to do was avoid him.

    As great as step is at avoiding physical contact, you would think he would have been able to avoid that collision.

  19. @rangersreport

    I know this is about MSL, but what a long shift for Stepan: 2 good def. plays vs. Crosby, then beat Letang to create turnover.

  20. Don’t care if they’re ugly enough to scare children or top models….as long as there are goals.

  21. iManny-O-War on

  22. Coos also Hags just scored and Pierre sounds like he just watched his dog get run over.

  23. I prefer three goal leads….but this feels pretty good.

    total domination so far.

  24. Pouliot will slice someone’s throat with his skate a la Happy Gilmore to negate the momentum!!

  25. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Pierre – “Marc Andre May have let in two bad goals, but I still want to kiss him on the mouth”

  26. SIOUXper game by MSL on

    2 SIOUXper Goals by the Boys in Blue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Ranger RULE!!!!

  27. Both calls horrible…..not allowed to clear the crease, my god what would Beck or Bueke do?

  28. Yeah, THE may have cost us the game with the missed partial break and this penalty.

  29. Both roughing calls need to
    Be let go. Let the teams freaking play.

    Remember that stop on the.

  30. I can see Richie gliding back on defense 4,000 miles away and with no picture.

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

    GOOD HITS!!!

    LETS GO LETS GO LETS GO LETS GO!!!!

    Can you feel the POWER!!!!!!
    Place is rockin tonight , proud proud proud!!!

  32. Am I allowed to criticize Boyle for another failed clear, or is his effort all that counts?

  33. SIOUXper game by MSL on

    RANGERS smell blood….. if the Rangers kill this.

    They are going to run the Penguins out of town.

  34. Norm Merton on

    Snuck away from Mothers Day eats to witness the single worst clearing attempt in hockey history, unpunished. Boyle was it?

  35. SIOUXper game by MSL on

    To all the MOTHERS on here and in our HEARTS.

    Happy Mothers DAY!!!

    To France :)

  36. ThisYearsModel on

    Nash is fine. Fleury got lucky on his last shot. Should have been a goal.

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

    Nash is our Defensive forward Manny , hes lookin Greaaaat!!!

  38. SIOUXper game by MSL on

    THE KREIDER is dialed in.

    PIMP has to be bouncing off the ceiling.

  39. Norm Merton on

    coos, you’re not going to want to hear this, but Richie went to the net to screen Hagelin’s shot. It was him, I swear.

  40. SIOUXper game by MSL on

    Only way they are going to score on us, if we score on ourselves.

  41. what a dope klein is, standing at the side of the net looking totally clueless and of course lets puck deflect off him into the net, terrible goal to give up against a team who can score, ridiculous.

  42. SIOUXper game by MSL on

    Cut him some slack TommyG

    At least he was clearing his guy in front of the next …._ _ it happens.

  43. If Fleury had two sugar cubes in his shorts, Richie would knock him through the glass into the third row.

  44. that goal off klein really pissed me off, can’t give up goals like that against the penguins, stupid Klein.

  45. Norm Merton on

    Good start — Pens got puck-luck (as did the Rangers) but they deserved a goal that period. Credit Marc Andre Fleury Marc Andre Fleury for the big save or two at 0-2.

  46. iManny-O-War on

    Yup. Without that goal it’s just hold on tight. Now we need to build on this.

    Penguins a great 2nd period team

  47. Alain Amour on

    A total team effort in the first period. Top to bottom. Bjorn to Boyle, excluding Boyle’s failing to clear the puck on the penalty kill.

    The goal was simply bad luck. No excuses. Just win.

  48. SIOUXper game by MSL on

    _I’ll be honest. On Wednesday I didn’t think we’d be doing “It’s Go Time!” today. Neither did most of youse_

    Most not ALL.

    We are winning this game.

    And GAME 7!!!

  49. SIOUXper game by MSL on

    Bottle that period up.

    And open it at the start of EVERY PERIOD!

  50. SIOUXper game by MSL on

    JR – MSG not that loud in his life?

    I guess he wasn’t there in ’94.

  51. ThisYearsModel on

    Pittsburgh MVP is Marc Joanette. Trips us on a breakaway and calls the Jokinen dive as a penalty on Kreider. It got Pittsburgh back in the game.

  52. Stranger Nation on

    Live from MSG

    Go Marty

    THE is on fire

    That Puts goal was at the end of a very bad shift by 4th line and 3rd pair – is Biyle hurt?

  53. Need to push again at the start. MAF was actually good other than Hags goal, but hopefully he is hearing voices

  54. Stranger Nation on

    Can’t have Step line on when Cindy is on the ice

    Go Ranfers!!!!

    Place was loud that period – lots to cheer about

  55. Stranger Nation on

    What’s a ranfer?

    Ha!

    6-3 final and on to Pissburg

    Flury is a flake

  56. “Pittsburgh MVP is Marc Joanette. Trips us on a breakaway and calls the Jokinen dive as a penalty on Kreider. It got Pittsburgh back in the game.”

    Agreed, ThisYears.

  57. The Oshie commercial says in small print don’t shoot pucks at people without a helmet! How”s about a cup?

  58. Did the referee’s trip remind anyone else of NYR-WSH a few years back? Dubi and Gabby on a 2-0!

  59. SIOUXper game by MSL on

    LET’S GO RANGERS!!!

    I have my bottle of Blue out…… it’s working :)

  60. SIOUXper game by MSL on

    Manny tell me you are drinking the EXACT same thing you were on game 5 :)

  61. Norm Merton on

    3-1 could be 2-2 any second. Unbelievable they can’t get this right in Toronto. Could turn the game around completely.

  62. SIOUXper game by MSL on

    *That is NOT a penalty*

    Fluery the Back flopper Flower….. what a piece a _ _ it!

  63. iManny-O-War on

    I’m so mad at these refs. 4 minutes of BS shorthandedness and 1 goal taken away

  64. iManny-O-War on

    That wasn’t Pollock right? So Joanette made those awful calls, slew footed Stepan and took a goal away from us.

  65. Norm Merton on

    Girardi playing cough-it-up from the opening whistle. Lundqvist is enormous.

  66. crosby skates through the whole team…some weak stick checks… he should be on his pants on the ice

  67. SIOUXper game by MSL on

    Rangers RULE!

    Take them to School!

    We need ONE more GOAL…… I want to keep sipping :)

  68. Norm Merton on

    McD up top, Richie on the left was looking good. So they switch it up. Dumb.

  69. iManny-O-War on

    That line is not playing well tonight. If that third line would wake up.

  70. Robby Bonfire on

    Don’t put him on the Power Play – PLEASE don’t put him on the Power Play. All he can do is score short-handed and even-strength. He can’t hit the broad side of a barn on the Power Play. PLEASE, Rangers, don’t put him on the Power Play. THANK YOU!

  71. Norm Merton on

    Gritty, oniony, take-a-hit, grinding, put-the-puck-in-with-your-teeth goal!!

  72. Stranger Nation on

    The bro is very very HARD!!!!

    Feel good for Klein getting the second helper

  73. Can’t wait for my DVD “Biggest Rangers Goals of 2013-14, Non-Brassard Edition” to arrive.

  74. ThisYearsModel on

    Brass is the man again. I was waiting for the goalie interference call.

  75. Is it too late to insert Nash in the lineup? Rangers could use his timely scoring right about now.

  76. Carp

    No way this ice is worse than Game 6 in Philly though. That’s the worst I think I’ve ever seen.

  77. I just wanna know what Nash was thinking on that epic fail.

    Klein has had a really solid game tonight. Big hits, smart plays in his own zone, gets an assist there. Too bad he scored for PIT!

  78. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Ranger goal, his 4th of the playoffs, number 16….Derick Brassard

  79. WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  80. refs really working hard for pens to win, not surprised. I think the pen owner must have some really telling stuff on bettman and the refs.

  81. Don’t like both blueliners pinching with a two goal lead, even if the forwards do cover for them.

  82. “We recognize that harping on a storyline diminishes it but … [harps on same storyline]”

  83. these refs are brutal, what else is new. Why do the rangers seem to get stuck with the worse refs in the league to call there games or are they all bad.

  84. Spear, Moore keeps his cool, Kunitz with a punch … no calls. That looks about right.

  85. Kunitz is a POS throwing punches while Moore is down.

    Where’s that Dejan hack?

  86. so Crosby is allow to spear now also and yet the ref is yelling at boyle, really? this league is such a joke, truly a joke.

  87. _Ref to Bran Bole: “DON’T YOU DARE TOUCH CROSBY!”_

    “HE’S NICE! HE’S NICE!! STOP, I LIKE HIM!!!”

  88. mean while there were blatant penalties taking by the pens and yet the rangers will be short handed, go figure.

  89. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    This may make sound like a bad person, but if the penguins dressing room exploded between periods, I’d laugh…

  90. Norm Merton on

    “Because I’m the Doc.” Love his announcing at times, but he’s well past his sell-by date. What a shill.

  91. ThisYearsModel on

    Crosby apparently thought the puck was in Boyle’s cup. That was after he tripped Girardi and slashed Henrik. Of course, he is allowed. Kunitz throws punches and there are no Pittsburgh penalties. Some things never change.

  92. Alain Amour on

    Total team effort. Top to bottom. Bjorn to Boyle. Whichever Rangers failed to clear the puck on the last Penguins power play is a humongous idiot.

    Good call to disallow the goal from Kreider. Bad call to send Kreider to the box. No excuses. Just win.

  93. leetchhalloffame on

    Crysby spears DMoore then calls Boyle an effing pu**y. Wrong the first time, right on the second.

  94. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Pierre – “I’m hoping to kiss Sid on the mouth as he comes out to start the third. While he’s in the box, I’m going to stare deep into his eyes and mouth I LOVE YOU to him”

  95. If the NHL will not deal with the dirty Crosby, the RANGERS should…He is going to seriously hurt someone…Class Act…

  96. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Pierre – “I’d live to have MAF and Sid come down on me two on one”

  97. iManny-O-War on

    Coach Klein May have an own goal but he also has two great shots from the point

  98. A power play goal to start this period would be too much to ask for as a Ranger fan! Just for once give us some breathing room and let the crowd have it’s fun……please

  99. Hahahaha Sioux!!!

    The way Milbury just looked at Tappen makes me want to take a very hot shower, or hang myself ….

  100. Stranger Nation on

    I came hoping to cheer Nash but he is a lost puppy looking for his mommy. He is out of position – need to get him and Step off pk – slow and dumber

  101. The NHL will sweep this under the rug quicker than you can say “The puck is behind Fleury”!!

  102. ThisYearsModel on

    Someone tweeted that Henrik got Crosby with his water bottle after the horn sounded. I hope so.

  103. Milbury with the googly eyes towards Tappen. It doe NOT get more creepy than that.

  104. THE Kreider factor has been huge since his return. He adds such a spark that was missing in the Flyers series…

  105. And the mouth action too….I hope she reminds him off camera that her fiancée can poke check him to eternity

  106. iManny-O-War on

    I thought we had a PK with Boyle in the box. Highest my terror:excitement ratio got

  107. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Pierre – “I would kiss coon it’s on the mouth even tho he is really ugly”

  108. SIOUXper game by MSL on

    “Critical Kill” says Pierre. He can’t help himself, but to cheer for the Penguins.

  109. Norm Merton on

    Tried but failed with set play to set up SH breakaway. Think the Pens know that play yet?

  110. Honestly, I’m pretty stunned the refs aren’t giving them freebies until atleast 3-2.

  111. I’ll regret saying this layer, but it actually miss JM. Rather him and Sam than listening to Doc’s voice break every five minutes.

  112. Wasn’t that a clean play? He didn’t touch his hands…and then Latang nicely dove

  113. Seriously, the risk of 3-2 so seriously outweighed the potential gains of 4-1 its insane. That was a non-decision.

  114. ” one of the best linesmen in the league” says easy does it instead of calling penalty …WTB!!!!!!

  115. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Pierre – “Malkinstein might have bolts in his neck, but I’d kiss him on the mouth”

  116. What happens first…Henrik gets an assist on an outlet pass or Nash scores a goal?

  117. SIOUXper game by MSL on

    Rangers win first 5 MINS. NO SCORE.

    Zucc should have had one there.

  118. Norm Merton on

    Stepan having a great game! Earlier, Richards tried to motion McD to the top — that’s clearly what the coaches want.

  119. Man, Brassard goes from waaaaaaay too close to taking one to start the shift to drawing one to end it.

    NO RICHARDS ON POINT HERE.

    NO.

    RICHARDS.

    ON.

    (THE.)

    POINT.

    HERE.

  120. What happened to Dorsett? Is he being benched? Haven’t seen him since the 1st period.

  121. leetchhalloffame on

    Good chances on this pp but at this point in game and protecting a 2 goal lead Richards should not be on backline of pp.

  122. Say, what’s that throbbing in the back of my throat?

    Oh, it’s just my heart.

  123. ThisYearsModel on

    Hank did get Crosby in the face with his water bottle as he skated off the ice,

  124. Norm Merton on

    R’s can start to clutch and grab now. Whistles should be swallowed by now.

  125. “I’m so mad that hit the post that I feel the need to hit someone in the head and risk their overall health.”

  126. My radio went out so my mom is doing play by play: “SAVE LUNDQVIST! SAVE LUNDQVIST! SAVE LUNDQVIST!”

  127. Happy happy happy happy

    Now, an early prayer for Tuesday……please please please pleading please ..

  128. “NO NO NO THAT’S THE SWING THAT I WANT TO USE I DON’T WANT HIM TO BE ON IT!!!” -my 2.5 year old at the park- Sidney Crosby

  129. SIOUXper game by MSL on

    EVERYTHING is POSSIBLE when you believe. – MSL

    DO you Believe?

    *I believe*

  130. Alain Amour on

    Game 7 on Tuesday night. Bjorn Henrik Lundqvist. Bjorn is reborn. Total team effort. Top to bottom. Bjorn to Boyle.

  131. pens look frustrated, that’s a good sign. Rangers appear to be in the pens head, game 7 here we come, Let’s Go rangers!!!

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

    RANGERS WIN RANGERS WIN RANGERS WIN!!!

  133. Say what you will, but keeping that much vaunted Penguins offence bottled up for two matches straight is no small feat. Can they do it a third time?

  134. Norm Merton on

    It’s already a successful season. Down 3-1 against a better team, got it to 3-3, so house money. Lundqvist keeping them in it with world-class goaltending.

  135. Awesome win, and I’m well chuffed, but NYR had a tremendous opportunity to win one of Games 2-4. It will be a real shame if they go out in Game 7.

  136. I just rewound and it looks like Moore got a couple nice jabs in on Letang. Twitter says that all started because Crosby crosschecked Boyle from behind at 20:00 then bolted.

  137. YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    :-)

  138. Guys we totally need to talk about offseason moves again tomorrow. Because we’ll look back and laugh when the Rangers win the Cup.

  139. Mister, I am not going to let that info and the Milbury dough boy post show ruin my mama’s happy day….

  140. ThisYearsModel on

    THE set the tone and led the way for this epic win. All hail THE. ALL HAIL THE!

  141. THE was great. Step-On was good. Nash was “good”

    The Good One has a chance to erase this whole playoff performance with a big game 7 to lead NYR to victory. Time to put on those big boy pants and glue them on.

  142. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Brassard – “I guaranteed a win and that I’d score. Game 7 will be no different. This is my time”

  143. iManny-O-War on

    It’s really true, ORR. One game and he’s a hero.

    He was very defensive today. PK and a shift with the 4th line late

  144. Like to see the Hawks lose, but how nice are those Uni’s? I say it all the time but they are niiiiice

  145. iManny-O-War on

    I’m done with Greg, Mama. He was unreasonably mean to Eric (who is my boy)

    But yea. I’m not convinced we win. At all. I’ll expect a loss and be devastated when it happens

  146. Seems highly unlikely to play a third game in a row of this intensity but you never know….

    Daydreaming of an OT win. Some major Fleury flub or Nash breakaway

  147. i avoided the padded Safe Room
    tonight
    and actually
    watched
    periods 1 and 3

    i don’t feel so much like a jinx
    but
    unless i really get myself in shape
    and my blood pressure waaaay down
    by 7 p.m. EST on Tuesday
    it’s been nice knowing y’all
    because my heart will likely burst

  148. _would you trade a game 7 win tuesday for a 1st rounder?_

    Never said I wouldn’t, babe.

  149. Doesn’t matter. No team has won the Cup needing to go seven games in two rounds before the Final. Might as well pack it in for game 7.

  150. “I was a fairly emotional cat too … so … I don’t know … I hate the guy” – Dave Maloney on Sidney Crosby

  151. Dave Maloney!!!!!!!!!!!!! If I didn’t love you already I really really love you now……just threw crybaby under the bus….

  152. ThisYearsModel on

    Do they seed the NHL draft based on playoff finish? If we win Tuesday, that means the pick we give up to Tampa will be #27 or lower?

  153. No team has won the Cup

    No team has advanced to the Finals after playing 7 games in the first two rounds.

  154. Manny, have no idea what transpired between you all…but I sure do hate when heads I like get into it. Hope it can be worked out.

    As for the boys, I guess it’s about how you gird yourself. You’re prepared for the worst and will be devastated, I know. I’m hoping for the best and well….I don’t want to jinx it…

  155. Come on. They gave us the win Friday and again today. They play the way they have the last two and who knows?

    Besides we all expected them to lose to the “elite level” pens anyway. Right?

    If they lose, it’s what we all expected. If they win, well then,

    OH BABY!!

  156. ThisYearsModel on

    Thx Mr D. Onion-filled effort tonight. Hope it helps St. Louis’ family just a little bit. They had to feel the affection of the crowd.

  157. Hanks’s interviews are just swell.

    Stats shmats

    LGR!!!

    Olga I stick salute you!

  158. SCREW THE FIRST ROUNDER!!!!!
    JUST WIN, BABY!!!!!!!

    besides, our first rounders usually suck dirty donkey hooves!!
    (no offense to THE and whoever has actually made a dent but it seems more like the rarity than the norm)

  159. iManny-O-War on

    Right! Pens 11-1 with Pollock despite Jeanette’s every effort to make it 12-0

  160. BoneHeads Rule!!!

    Game Seven Tuesday!!

    At 7:00 pm, last two games at 7:00 pm. Undefeated at 7:00 pm in this series.

    Boom, stat bomb.

  161. just read Pat Leonard’s tweet about cindy playing dumb at hitting D Moore low….
    so
    yeah, i’m gonna say it

    I think the whole clip of him shaking hands with Marty was nothing but a POS PR stunt set up for his benefit
    because
    why was the camera filming Marty right at that EXACT Moment?!?!?!

    yeah, i went there because he’s a whiny UN-Classy beeeyoooch on the ice
    who is basically coddled by pitt media and WAAAAAY too many in the Canadian media

  162. Just Pierre filming on his blackberry because I guarantee you Pierre uses a blackberry.

  163. i will give cindy credit that he did give a fan his stick on his way off the ice after period 3 of game 5

    there i said something
    nice

    nah.
    didn’t feel better about it

  164. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Pierre – “if I kissed Sid on the mouth, I’d grow hair on my balling ball head”

  165. It doesn’t get any better then this for me. This is right up there with Stanley Cup Finals games.

    The ‘pretender’ Rangers have a winner take-all game against the star studded Penguins. The same penguins that for years have thumbed their noses at the Rangers like they were so superior. Chance to send Crosby to a loss that will stick with him forever.

    The boys are rolling. Game 7 is an opportunity to shine for the Rangers. Grab It. Tackle It. Take It.

  166. Great game tonight.

    I will say that I bash Nash a lot and he’s playing pretty poorly (seemed more engaged tonight), but he is at least handling the situation respectfully.

    I defend Crosby’s talent but he really is playing like such a little punk. That spear on Moore should be a max fine. He’s going around pulling these cheap moves because he’s frustrated and it’s indefensible. Hope they beat this clown to see if he’ll actually shake hands this time.
