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

Canadiens at Rangers.

 

Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.

Hope most of you make it through Game 6 tonight. As you are well aware, your team has a pretty nasty habit of losing games when leading a series. Of not playing particularly well until pushed to the brink. As you know, their last five series victories over three years have all required a win in Game 7. As you know, in the history of the Cup playoffs no teams have had to survive two seven-game series in the first two rounds and gone on to reach the finals (Los Angeles could actually do it this spring, too).

From Elias: The Rangers have won six of their last seven home games in which they had an opportunity to eliminate an opponent.

From my friend Tom Gulitti, via twitter: Henrik Lundqvist in last five non-Game 7s with chance to clinch a series: 0-5 , 5.53 GAA, .808 save%, pulled four times. … Lundqvist in Game 7s: 5-1, 1.00 GAA, .965 save%, 1 SO. Last 12 facing elimination: 10-2. 1.32 GAA,.957 save%, 2 SO. So, you know.

The Rangers will be minus John Moore, serving the first of his two-game suspension for a high hit on Dale Weise in Game 5 Tuesday. So Raphael Diaz, the ex-Canadien who was actually traded from Montreal to Vancouver this season, will play in Moore’s spot on defense. Diaz played in Games 3 and 4 vs. Pittsburgh, both of them dreadful losses.

Weise is not expected to play, though coach Michel Therrien — more garbage surrounding this series — was saying to not presume he has a concussion, despite what the Habs reportedly told the NHL Player Safety before Moore’s suspension hearing. Therrien is only saying Weise is injured. Brandon Prust returns from his two-game suspension for “interfering” with Derek Stepan’s jaw, which was broken. Alexei Emelin, who missed Game 5 with an undisclosed injury, will apparently not play.

And goalie Carey Price continued to skate while rehabbing his right knee injury, suffered on the collision with Chris Kreider in Game 1.

  1. LGR!!!

    Handshakes!

    Lets go west! As in either end of Route 66!

    Broke out the Rod Gilbert sweater tonight!

    LGR!!

  2. Hi all!

    If the game jitters wasn’t enough, the thought of listening to Emerick makes me sick too. My husband wants to listen to it with the sound on. I may have to watch in another room. ugh

  3. since game 3 the league and the refs have done there part in helping the habs get back into this series. I lost any respect for the people who run the NHL. I expect no different tonight. The refs won’t miss one call against the rangers tonight and probably will add some penalty calls against the rangers while the Canadians will still get away with there diving, tripping, hooking. How could it be any different. This is the almighty Canadians, Canada’s kings of hockey.

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

    Has Tokarski *stopped* the Rangers from taking warmups yet?

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

    Doc Emrick’s voice and vocabulary are a pox on the Hockey world.

  11. King Eddie Eddie Eddie VI on

    Solidarity.

    Everybody want to see the game on Thursday.
    Everybody want a friend.

  28. What’s the heck is Du-Gay doing running around the Rangers morning practice touching and kissing guys sticks??

  29. Let’s go boys!!!! Handshakes, building quakes, whatever it takes. ..BOYEEE!!!!

  30. Having lived in both Philadelphia and Boston, I can assure you they inverted the attractiveness of the women for that commercial.

  31. hahahahhaaa…..OK, I’m breathing, I am. I accidentally sliced my pinky so maybe I’m just losing too much blood….but I have a special helmet around it and am ready to go!!!

  33. Please please please praying please. And MSG better be hartnelling loud!!!!!! Come on blue seat blueshirts, show up those million dollar seats dressed like fans !!!

  34. Ladies, Gents, ( lifts cocktail)

    Here’s to ya! ( tilts cocktail)

    Salut! Drinks cocktail.

    Repeat

  35. Man, that looked ripe for Zucc to go on the backhand. He’s really been disappointing this series.

  36. Every time I hear tocarski I hear koharski, and schonfeld telling him to have another donut. . .

  37. Oh please…..thank heavens that was actually called properly …nice try Gionta

  38. Agreed, TYM. This isn’t a goalie you need to create the perfect chance against. Game 5’s frantic comeback should probably have proven that conclusively.

  39. awesome start so far. This Montreal team is so vulnerable in their own end.

    Just need Hank on form.

  40. Hmmm. Greg, if you mention the liquor commonly associated with russia, you’ll get moderated. That’s the weird one I know of.

  41. Greg old blueshirt….it’s a mystery…even I have been moderated a couple times lately, and I’m mama !!!

  42. ThisYearsModel on

    Not that this needs to be said, but we have all the shots and chances and one screw up and this whole thing could come crashing down.

  43. Doc screaming in delight on the Zucc hit; fails to mention that the whirling dynamo Zucc is the first back to pressure the puck

  44. “Rust does suck. The Range Rover we use for grocery shopping has a little on the passenger’s side and its humiliating. I just don’t have time to get a new one.”

  45. Really
    Even if we win
    How is this team a cup finalist
    They stink in so many stinky ways

  46. 11-3 in shots. They are withstanding our surge. We gotta get something to show for the effort. COME ON BOYS! YOU CAN DO THIS!!!

  47. I called the Prust You Suck chant….

    1 shot on goal allowed… cant complain. Now score a couple and ole oleoleoleole oleeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

  48. That was a bit too sketchy for me.

    Control

    Composure

    Try a bit more of that. Don’t play their game. C’mon.

  49. well if ur gonna commit one its the best time to when as the intermission breaks it up.

  50. Seriously … how hard do you have to get drilled in the face to bail on a rush like that. And do you really think he did? C’mon.

  51. ThisYearsModel on

    Rangers were Plekaneced again. Another colossal dive. Great period with nothing to show for it again. This is not good.

  52. iDoodie Machetto on

    Is the blog broken or is it just me?

    Also, was gionta actually hit with a stick or was he plekanecing?

  53. So far this has all the thrills and chills of a local high school championship game

  54. Rangers cooled off the last 6-7 minutes or so, but so far the Rangers are playing their game, just no lead to show for it.

    Luckily, Montreal doesn’t look threatening at all.

  55. When the good lord visited the Staal house and offered to give offensive skill to the brothers, apparently Marc took offense with the offer.

  56. Oleosmirf
    Bar to far away, maybe loading maybe not…..you know how the lie to you at airports

  57. didn’t staal shoot plekanic on that play? rubbed him with his hands and he fell like a drunk…

    nash should have held onto that puck a little longer…

  58. Even though we had a clear territorial edge,,,,, Too many turnovers and not enough take always.

  59. Yes, it must have been awfully difficult for Tokarski to not adjust his pad at all on the redirect on Kreider.

  60. iManny-O-War on

    Amen C-Dub. I’m vomiting more now after no goals came out of that early *surge*

  61. So TRUE Latona. That was not a good save on Kreider by the kid. He did nothing. The deflection went right into his pads. Can’t stand Keith and Mike!

  62. CraigWeather on

    Milbury’s such a schmuck- “Rangers didn’t score so Montreal’s taken their home ice advantage.”

  63. I’m disappointed with how little were hearing from Jessica and the other lllllllllllllaaaaaadies….

  64. I can’t believe were gonna be one of the last two tents left in that GEICO commercial

  65. Stranger Nation on

    Richards line pinned in with a momentum changing shift late in period

  66. ThisYearsModel on

    Clearly, forcing the Rangers to dump and chase severely compromises their offense.

  67. This was my fault. Took me seven minutes in to get the kids into bed and didn’t have beer.

    Should be better in the second.

  68. NYC DEP reporting record # of toilet flushes in Rangerland during the 1st Period.

  69. iManny-O-War on

    Gravy: start pounding Coronas immediately.

    How did it go with the babysitter?

  70. ThisYearsModel on

    Each time a Ranger stick gets near the feet of a Montreal player, they hit the ice. 3 times that period for Subban alone.

  71. iManny-O-War
    Gravy: start pounding -Coronas immediately.

    How did it go with- the babysitter?

    May 29th, 2014 at 8:57 PM

  72. Gravy: start pounding -Coronas immediately.
    How did it go with- the babysitter?

  73. BickelsPickle on

    Coronas? What are we standing around the corner in our WHITEbeaters? We’re classy. Manny, I hear you’re in PS/Windsor. Bierkraft and Double Windsor FTW.

  74. inthearmsofbrianboyle on

    SHG Bigfoot Stonehands within a minute.
    It most likely will happen…

  75. BP, I’m taking one for the team. Drank them during the five game winning streak. Got broken in game 3, but I’m looking for a little Mexican magic.

  76. I’m ok with no score… Zuccarello is due. He took that big hit seemed unfazed & flew length of ice for another hit.

  77. Doodie, this time I think it’s just you….I’ve been fine on both devices….

  78. even though I am only 26,I am too old for this carcillo…yeah, I said tat…

  79. Any of you watch Californication? This is a good time, in a high voice to say, motherhartneller!!!

  80. BickelsPickle on

    I think we saw this type of game before. Out play the opposing team, lose.

  81. Also, how is it possible that Carl Hagelin is stronger on his skates than 6’4″ 240lb Rick Nash? That guy falls down when someone blows on him.

  82. Dave Stubbs is an absolute embarrassing homer, his twitter feed is just sad

  83. Yea hags is a much better skater and he knows how to absorb/roll of hits better. Nash is big and falls hard.

  84. BRAN BOLE takes puck with MTL in compromised position, promptly returns it to a Hab.

  85. iManny-O-War on

    I swear it’s like Make A Wish paid for Therrien to get his dream of NHL coach.

  86. I don’t like game scenario so far. You know the rule: you don’t score when dominated… It’s just take one stupid mistake or bad bounce…

  87. On the Tarmac no wi fi on board. At least no heartburn……wheels up, score already!!!!

  88. Norm Merton on

    Dead even since I got here after Subban PP. Reading the posts, seems as though the Rangers were playing well before that.

  89. As dominant as we’ve been, we’re actually a tick behind our full season pace for shots.

  90. Carp
    or
    anyone
    can you put in a good word to France
    or
    anyone for a little help here?

    i’m not supposed to start my blood pressure
    meds
    til
    tomorrow

  91. Safe flight Hedberg…hope you land with good news, and I go to sleep with same…

  92. iManny-O-War on

    *Carp* is Ulfie negotiating with the Hurricanes while the playoffs go on a la Keenan?

  93. wow Hank in Game 7 mode!

    think the linesman might have blown an offsides there.

  94. Neither team looking forward to the pounding that the Kibgs will soon deliver

  95. “Canadiens playing inspired hockey out there. They want it.”

    What game are u watching? Canadiens have 12 SOG 36 min into the game.

  96. Rangers D getting stick happy again
    Content to slap at the puck when they could control it

  97. Norm Merton on

    Canadiens winning the scrappy part of the game at the moment, coming away with the loose pucks.

  98. _What game are u watching? Canadiens have 12 SOG 36 min into the game._

    If we reversed the teams it would be “HOW CAN YOU BE GENERATING NOTHING WITH YOUR SEASON ON THE LINE!!!”

  99. Norm Merton on

    Only since I got to the game this period are the Canadiens playing well. I assume from the shot totals it’s a new development.

  100. YESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  101. How does Pierre know all these guys schools? Will he Facebook stalk us next?

  102. As that was swinging to Boyle I was already head-screaming “just quick out front please quick out front”. He heard me because he knows I love him and care and want him to make several million for us.

  103. Note to self…go to bathroom first before you pee yourself on major goal in major game….. Mother hartneller !!!!

  104. leetchhalloffame on

    Hank should never touch the puck other than making a save. Great job Benoit Allaire.

  105. Josh, 26, just said that Brian Boyle set a playoff record for consecutive periods ending in verbal confrontation.

  106. Norm Merton on

    Win or lose, Henrik needs to go to stick-handling camp this summer. Huge hole in his otherwise superb game.

  107. I would rather have Nash than Pacioretty.

    The penalty by Richards was a great penalty to take.

  108. Torts dogs are home vomiting
    What a bunch of little biotches these Habs are. Gotta rank them right up there with Philly, just South of Pitt. Are Habs flightless birds, too?

  109. King Eddie Eddie Eddie VI on

    Great stick tap by Moore letting McDunner know he was open.

  110. Richards penalty was a great penalty! the guy got outmuscled by vanek. he stinks in the defensive zone…

  111. We are one period away from…..well you know….

    Dom Moore deserves good things

  112. Norm Merton on

    I am rooting hard for the Canadiens to fold, for all our sakes. Too much vomit on the floor as it is.

  113. iManny-O-War on

    Carp: any word on Ulf negotiations with the Hurricanes to be head coach?

  114. This stupid coach has no
    Clue of time and score. What’s with richy line who he can’t defend in last minute after goal. Put step
    Nash and a St. Louis or Boyle last minute kill period.

    Clock freaking nanagement

  115. Wahoo0000!!!! I did plredict Dmoops would have a goal…what a shift…when the 4th line scores, Rangers win!

  116. ZzZz NYR ZzZz© on

    EXCITING time to be us , Ranger fans!!!

    WE CAN PUT THE HABS AWAY

    I repeat , no I wont but I could.

    We are in for one HOLEY HELL of a third period man.

    SO lets DO THIS!!!!!!!!

  117. Richards took a necessary penalty, but the situation that led to the penalty-taking should have been avoided. Just escape the period, fool-diggers!

  118. Norm Merton on

    PK will be big. Even bigger will be the Rangers response after it ends, when the game will be 1-0 or 1-1, a dangerous score either way.

  119. I have never been disappointed by a Messin With Sasquatch commercial. The ones on the beef jerky site are hilarious too if you need an idea for a class trip or something

  120. Have this feeling These refs will even up the PP’s. lets kill this one first the see if the WWE appears.

  121. Richy should never see that shift after goal
    This late regardless play
    He made.

  122. How could we have all been so blinded by love?
    It’s obvious now that no Torts > Torts

  123. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Hags will score a shortie. I just half vomited, swallowed it, then full on vomited my half vomit.

  124. Keith Jones is right there. Mtl will be fired up in the third. Captain Obvious. Rangers have to weather the storm and keep their foot on the gas.

  125. Norm Merton on

    Richie’s line should never play. The other team scores on them every time. They must be -15 in this series by now. AV should be fired in between periods.

  126. Even if they kill this one? There will be another.

    The trick is simple: Prepare mentally for all possibilities.

  127. Well Torts never had the reigning league MVP on his team either (although MSL has been MIA tonight)

  128. Stranger Nation on

    Richie line in last 5 minutes of period is a disaster in the Dzone. If we maintain the lead in the last 5 minutes of the game I don’t want to see Bucky the Wonder Horse

  129. ThisYearsModel on

    So long as we are ahead, I expect a parade to the penalty box. I must give these 2 refs credit for not falling for all the dives tonight. Thus far, that is.

  130. 20m of pure suffering comming up soon. They never make it easy. We all need to remember to enjoy these moments. I suffer. I am amd idiot! I should enjoy. Instead I am a basket case. Lets end this here and now. LETS GO RANGERS!!!

  131. In an hour,it’s of us will either be vomiting or whistling while we clean up vomit

  132. *Ghostbusters* *II* is on!!!

    Not a chance we lose this now. Solid as solid gets guarantee.

  133. How can AV have Secretariat out there late in a period or late in a game? Gees!!!

  134. >>EXCITING time to be us , Ranger fans!!!

    Trust me, the knot I’ve had in my stomach these past two days can hardly be described as exciting.

  135. Who is the hotter chick? The girl with the Flyers shirt or the Bruins shirt?

  136. Don’t try to hold on. Win the game 3-0. Win going away. Win like you’ve been there before. Impose your will at your rink. Make it academic!

  137. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    20 minutes. Shake hands with the Habs. Take tomorrow off

    *my vomit revives dead people*

  138. TV coverage to be preempted shortly
    Torts hijacked the zamboni and is leading a low speed chase down 7th Ave

  139. Stranger Nation on

    Pig faced bruins chick v. Exotic filthy gal bouncing happily on treadmill

    go figure

  140. Honestly I will probably pause the game and then just check the blog until such a time as I can determine that the power play is over. Then I will speed through to catch up. Such is the level of my anxiety.

    This is my enjoyment?

    LGR !!!

  141. Stranger Nation on

    Pig faced bruins chick v. Exotic filthy gal bouncing happily
    do the math

  142. Pouliot strategy is to take penalties so we can kill time by throwing the puck down the ice

  143. Carp – even you have to admit that if the rangers win this game it would be a huge swing in momentum for tomorrow

  144. iDoodie Machetto on

    Oh thank god they are doing the tshirt toss. I thought they would forget!

  145. Keep cycling, keep up the tenacious forecheck in the Offensive zone! That is the way to do it!

  146. SWPLetsGONYR on

    Great shift, but Emrick creaming his jeans over Tokarski. Admit, kid’s playing a great series but enough already!

  147. Ranger-on-the-Isle on

    Great couple of shifts there…KEEP IT UP…Lets get that second one!!!

  148. Rangers doing everything right, especially the third line, wearing them down. They deserve a reward, though, and if they don’t get it, it will only take one funny hop to tie it. What a game, hockey.

  149. A fake wraparound with a trailer is going to score here. Justin O’Parski is cheating hard now.

  150. SIOUXper win TONIGHT! on

    Rangers are winning every aspect of this game.

    WHEN does the insurance GOAL come?

  151. Olga Folkyerself on

    “A fake wraparound with a trailer”

    Sounds like a blind date for greg…

  152. So many opportunities, none converted… will the Montreal push back have anything in it?

  153. SIOUXper win TONIGHT! on

    Boys we are 10 minutes from the STANLEY CUP FINALS…….

    how about that 1’st round pick now?

  154. If Sofia Vergara wasn’t with me in this dream, I’d say someone wake me up, this can’t be hsppening

  155. Subban is a pain in the neck, but man is he a strong skater. Trying to do too much, though.

  156. gregm_oldsection403 on

    So, PKS can’t skate back on D, but when he gets the puck in the offensive zone, suddenly he has legs?

    If i was a Montreal fan, i would be livid. that’s all about commitment and heart.

  157. PK’s play in the zone was strength, not wheels. He’s gassed. And on another day I question whether Suter or McD would get slammed for being gassed playing 30:00 per.

  158. Hate to see good ol’ Prust take that one. Before that, though, YOU DO NOT SHOOT WIDE on a 3 on 1 — lucky that didn’t come back at them at the other end.

  159. gregm_oldsection403 on

    At least it is conditioning for Subban, if it isn’t commitment. Granted, Subban has played harder minutes tonight, with NYR pressing the entire time.

  160. SIOUXper win TONIGHT! on

    This kid has made some HUGE saves.

    Too bad it’s not going to save his season.

  161. The NBC producers and camera crew should be ashamed of themselves. They cut away from every freaking scrum. Every one!

    LETS GO RANGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  162. When they pull, you fire at the net every chance. Take the faceoffs, don’t just tap around the boards, please.

  163. This series has been INSANE…but I am ready for a home grown stick salute and all that comes with this great win!!!!!!!!

  164. Please please please
    Please please please

    Please please please

    Please please please

  165. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  166. (See, people are going to talk S on Subban but who is the only guy waiting for the kid goalie?)

  167. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  168. Will Kypreos jump on the ice for this also?

    Are we a dynasty yet?

    Their best playoff period since 94 round 1

  169. That handshake line. Might be the thing I love about this sport more than anything else. Respecting the opposition.

  170. “OH MY GOD ITS RYAN CALLAHAN ACCEPTING THE TROPHY!!! HE’S TOUCHING IT!!! HE’S TOUCHING IT SOOOOOOO MUCH!!!”

  171. Who accepts the trophy? I waited a week to ask that question- superstition. We all accept the trophy-allright!

  172. SWPLetsGONYR on

    Unbelievable!!! One more round to go! Couldn’t be happier and more proud as a Rangers fan! Fitting that Dominic Moore gets the series clincher!

    4 wins away!!!! WHOO HOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  173. Rob in Beantown on

    I love you boneheads! This is a special night and a special team. Cherish it!

    Terror excitement ratio 0:100000000000000

  174. Papa Bear
    All is good. Milbury doubting Lundquist.

    Shut out is coming.

    May 29th, 2014 at 7:06 PM

    *i see dead people vomiting*

  175. Everybody, at some point please go on Dave Stubbs twitter site. He is a Habs beat writer. He is the biggest homer faux journalist I have ever seen! Carp should be PROUD of himself for his objectivity!

  176. Gravy

    We’re still going to look back at this conversation and laugh about how we were talking about offseason moves when the Rangers win the Cup.

    May 9th, 2014 at 2:01 PM

  177. I wouldn’t exactly say ” what a year”

    This run has been wild, but the regular season was brutal at times

  178. Yeah, I’m so bummed that the regular season was only good enough to get the Rangers to the playoffs. Ruins everything.

  179. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    I just vomited on the babysitter. But she’s too tied up to clean off.

  180. I’m still looking for my heart. I think it ended up in my stomach. I still think I’m dreaming. I don’t want to wake up. The cup final should be a good one and now that the rangers won’t be playing the Canadians I think the refereeing will be better (fair). One can hope.

  181. That was as clean game as any team can play. All three zones. In sure Carp will talk about that tomorrow. Hank didn’t have to steal it b

  182. ZzZz NYR ZzZz© on

    LETS GO RANGERS LETS GO!!!

    NO GAME SEVEN!!!!

    NO GAME SEVEN!!!!

    YEAH BABY!!!!!

    The support has been awsome on here , almost everyone believed!!! I LOVE YOU ALLLLL!!!!

  183. I just threw the babysitter down in my puddle of half vomit / half diarrhea. Now I’m going to have sex with her!!!!

  184. Give the Canadiens credit, nothing stupid from them tonight. Wonder if we’ll ever see the minor league goalie again. If not, he’s got a helluva story to tell his grandchildren. Great job by him.

  185. Now I hope the hawks win so that series can go to 7 games and than I hope the 7th game goes to 4 ot’s and they beat the crap out of each other.

  186. Carp, any way the Boneheads can see you off for your trip to Game 1 of the Finals? Just let us know and we’ll be there!!!!

  187. That was a textbook third period. Didn’t score, but had some chances. Gave up next to nothing.

  188. Great Stepan-Prust moment in the line. Tough on the cynics, great for the rest of us.

  189. Best team defensive game of the year: hats off to a AV and his coaching staff . This was our 7th game textbook defensive hockey we want the cup

  190. The Rangers played their best game of the season, offensively and defensively. Hank did very well though he did not have to do much.

  191. ZzZz NYR ZzZz© on

    ORR , I was watching CBC and they showed him alot. Glen Healy was talking him up , Calling him the Messiah , the greatest leader in all of sports. He said Messier is the greatest Ranger of all time.

  192. Canadiens overachieved in the post-season, took out a team I truly can’t stand. I’m happy to credit them — good team. (Didn’t overachieve as much as these Blueshirts, though!)

  193. You guys all rock. ..vomiting and all! Thanks for being the voice of reason carp. ..and we all speak the truth when we say we look for your game in review before any newspaper. ..

  194. Olga Folkyerself on

    STILL Hate the Habs! Happy the Rangers make the Finals, double happy they beat Montreal to do it.

    good thing we got a “moron” that is so incredibly “stupid” to replace him

    Ouch! We don’t get to this point without MSL… That’s just a fact.

  199. Here’s the next question…Sharks girl or Philly girl? Much tougher question.

  200. Really looking forward to watching these next two triple-overtime games between the Hawks and Kings.

  201. _Great Stepan-Prust moment in the line. Tough on the cynics, great for the rest of us._

    Normie, please for the non-lip readers like me, enlighten me. What was so great about it?

  202. jpg's sister on

    OMG Congrats everyone now I can go to my cousin’s wedding without looking at the score

  203. Rooting for Chicago in game six, then flip a coin. Either team tough. Either can be beaten.

  204. Also hats off to Carp (you’ve done a great job) and the great bloggers on this Ranger site. it,s a fun place to be

  205. “Mark Spector ? @SportsnetSpec
    Rangers fire coach John Tortorella:

    That is WILD!

  206. The 3rd Period was as good as the 3rd period this team had against the Islanders in 1979 game 6 2-1 victory which propelled the Blueshirts to the finals.

  207. Stranger Nation on

    MVP of series is McD, but My MVP for series – Hags; played absolutely great, does so much that doesn’t show on the stat sheet.

  208. iManny-O-War on

    Mrs. Manny: Coaches are like hair products. After a whole they lose their impact.

    Lol. My wife rules

  209. ZzZz NYR ZzZz© on

    Sorry Olga , LAK vs NYR in the finals.

    Kane looks tired and Crawford is too shaky. Seriously Gaborik has 11 goals!! Thats scary man.

    Gaborik could catch Jari Kurri’s ( reg Leach tied) record of 19 playoff goals!! Gretzky could only manage 17 . I’d be worried if I were a Chicago die hard like you. Prust sayn.

  210. iManny-O-War on

    Mrs. Manny: Coaches are like hair products. Great in the beginning. Them you get used to them. After a while they lose their impact.

    Lol. My wife rules

  211. Therrien was asked about Price prognosis now that series is over. Instead of answering the question he says “it’s tough to lose your best player so early in the series”.

  212. That the greatest save I have ever seen Hank make. It could not have come at a better time.

  213. Lev
    Lol re Mickey

    You know who else is pissed??

    Cally’s agent who has surely been fired by now ;)

  214. By the way, MAC TRUCK …. VASTLY outplayed the great Norris Trophy winner PK subban. Mac first Rangers D man to have 10 points in a series since.. ahem, Brian Leetch!

  215. Dropping by to say congrats to the long-standing, long-suffering ‘heads. I still despise 75 percent of this team, but I do feel some joy for Staal, Stepan, Kreider, Girardi and Boyle.

    With that said, I hope LA crushes them.

  216. (Alain-Kenneth’s usual name got banned for going from silly creepy to super over the top creepy. Lets hope he cleans it up.)

  217. Kinda sad going through life hoping your team loses in order to justify your position.

  218. And for those of you who have been ripping me and will rip me until they die: BITE ME

  219. (If you’d like details, email Manny and he’ll pass you through to me. But prepare to be really, really creeped out.)

  220. Take a long walk off a very short bridge, Alain. Or I’ll call the cops on you since I know exactly who you are.

  221. Hilarious moment in AV presser.

    Reporter: “Alain, if i told you in October that by the way you’d be in the SCF thisyear what would your honest reaction be?”

    AV: “In October?………..probably would have said “what are you smoking?””

    everyone laughs

  222. jpg's sister on

    I’m eating saltine crackers for my upset stomach

    SO Worth IT

    on the way to Stanley Cup

  223. CARP, AM ALREADY THINKING ABOUT READING YOUR REVIEW WITH MY MORNING CUP OF COFFEE.

    IT IS MY BIRTHDAY IN 25 MINUTES. THE BOYS GAME ME QUITE A PRESENT, HUH?

  224. I had three stars as hank, dorsett (whose play made that only goal possible), and d Moops.

    Honourable mention to Klein who was very very good again.

  225. Haha AV answering question about Marty and Dom Moore: “i think theyve found some “refuge”.. is that an English word? my French brain is working right now..”

  226. iManny-O-War on

    Here’s Make A Wish recipient Michel Therrien to speak with the media!

    (I’m not creepy despite what Doc says)

  227. Lundqvist and Richards doing a joint press conferenee. Richards has been asked one question and is looking really bored lol. Lundqvist answering question after question

  228. bull dog line on

    i read Alain’s comments like the rest of the comments, and I still do not understand the animosity towards him. he is nowhere near what Tiki was.

  229. Not the greatest looking, but depending on the next round, I may be getting a few items

  230. I was aboot to order it, Manny, but $40 for that is way too much. I think I’ll just get a group together like in “Heat” and pull off a robbery at the NHL store.

    The 1994 Cup hat is awesome. Love that hat so much. I wear it all the time!

  231. SIOUXper SHUTOUT Hen-rik!!! on

    Richie Rich needs Hank Tailors number. OMG.

    Hank looks like a GOD.

    Richie looks like it’s his first day on Wall Street :)

  232. Hey, many of us don’t appreciate Richards lack of speed and forechecking. His leadership has been great, though!

    What’s that worth?

  233. Reporter asks if Hank/Richards are worried about 6 days rest. Lundqvist says all the right things in long answer. Richards comes up and says “ummm same thing”. Presser over lol.

  234. bull dog line on

    I dont know anymore MrD. I miss the straight Ranger/ hockey talk. the personal stuff, not so much.

  235. iManny-O-War on

    I’ll join your robbery group ORR. You haven’t went to prison yet.

    But $40!?!? I’m amped and thought about it but….wow. Thanks NHL.

  236. Wicky- I do NOT need to defend my choices to anyone.

    Alain- bring it, dumbassen. I’ll dump you in the lake.

  237. Brandon Prust ?@BrandonPrust8 18s

    We should all be excited about the future of this organization. I’m honoured to be a part of it. All the best 2 the @NYRangers in the finals

    oh boy…

  238. bull dog line on

    by the way my prediction was Rangers in 6 with Nash scoring 4 goals. missed it by this much.

  239. Apologies to Carp for doing nothing to poke a certain grumpy one.

    I merely wished to express my happiness for the long suffering Boneheads. It’s people like the grumpy one and others, along with other reasons, that I no longer post here. Such a shame too since I have found a few good friends here.

    You all have your fun and keep sending those personal attacks my way. In the end, you will have to answer to an even higher power than Carp.

  240. and this was hands down the best game I’ve been at in my life

    first time all year the building has had anywhere near this kind of energy. I won’t lie – I got a bit choked up during Amirante

  241. iManny-O-War on

    That’s awesome Lloyd. Glad you got to be there and represent!

    Even Tokarski couldn’t stop you!

    20+ years for being Faithful to the Rangers!

    Rangers vs a SIOUX Captain.

    I want to be in the building when the RANGERS WIN this CUP!

    More than you could EVER imagine.

  244. Anyone want a laugh, go look at the threads leading up to AV being named as coach…hilarious

  245. What a night. Wow. Just awesome. We’re playing for the Cup!! Woooohoooo I can’t believe it.

  246. ZzZz NYR ZzZz© on

    Czechthemout!!! , Yeah the good ol Jagr ,Straka ,rosi and Malik . Ya forgot me man!!! Talk about disrespect …

    If Sather does not make that trade , MSL would be bonding with TB and maybe they would be riding MSL to the cup finals. WTG SATHER!!!!

  247. Czechthemout!!! on

    My pleasure Sioux!

    Enjoy this. As you know, Rangers fans dont get these moments often.

  248. SIOUXper SHUTOUT Hen-rik!!! on

    Too funny. NHL Network.

    Hank and Richie.

    Richie……needs help :)

  249. Mickey is an original bonehead….I missed whatever the dispute was, but please back off all. …can’t we all just celebrate and be happy….

  250. Mickey
    Not sure why you are after me but ummm have fun?

    Carp
    I thought you were on the top floor, but apparently there are offices above/higher than yours?

  251. Czechthemout!!! on

    Sorry Zzzz!

    I did not mean to. You are about as loyal as they come. Always positive, unlike me who sometimes gets nuts!

  252. Mama
    Not sure why she is pissed at me, I didn’t do Hartnell

    Czech
    Thanks and congrats to you

  253. Czech, congrats!!!

    Ok im actually considering missing that winter vacation (and my son’s future wedding) and going to a game in the SCF….

    wicky, i did! Guarantees of Torts having a better season and leading the Nucks to a Cup while Rangers miss the playoffs

  254. ZzZz NYR ZzZz© on

    Sweeeet !! Thanks Czech , you are an old school BB guy too right? loyal as they come , that also made my night !!

  255. Czechthemout!!! on

    Lev

    Pretty cool! Who could ever imagine this team would go this far?

    AV gets big kudos from me! Great coach. Lets finish this.

  256. Prust made a big mistake and it appeared when he approached Step, he was truly sorry. Still, Dorsett, night to night > Pruster.

  257. iManny-O-War on

    Why do people ask about the Prince of Whales? Seriously. We all know since the dawn of time that you don’t touch it!

  258. SIOUXper SHUTOUT Hen-rik!!! on

    Czech…. it makes it twice as sweet.

    But I was “sour” when the Rangers traded Patrick in ’94. He was the 1’st Sioux player, that could have won with the Rangers.

    I’m a HUGE Ranger fan! I wanted Patrick to be on this team in ’94. Perhaps I was pulling a little for Kristo this year :)

    I bleed blue…. I believe.

  259. iManny-O-War on

    You guys talking about blog
    Cred are hilarious. Some great people have joined this blog in the last season or two. Get over it and be a happy family. Christ

  260. ZzZz NYR ZzZz© on

    Yeah Czech , funny how one team can bring a couple strangers together . Pleasure knowing ya!!!

  261. ZzZz NYR ZzZz© on

    NEW YORK RANGERS best player besides Hank and McD……ZUCCO ZUCCO ZUCCO!!!!

  262. That being said if I sell one game to cup final I could prob make all my playoff money back.

    Were playing for cup just wow. Is this a freaking dream.

    You got to be in it to win it.

  263. ZzZz NYR ZzZz© on

    WE WANT SAM!!! WE WANT SAM!!! justttt to visit , this is Carps show now!!!

  264. SIOUXper SHUTOUT Hen-rik!!! on

    Manny, Mrs Manny, Eric, Carp – Mrs Sioux and I will fly out again, if someone could find up tickets……..

    Prust saying :)

  265. Torts to McDonuts: “Stay back son, you have no business in the offensive zone,”

  266. No joke women behind me asked my father if I was having a nervous breakdown. I really was. I watched last minute peaking from corner of my eye buried head in towel.

  267. Sioux Rangers in 6 on

    Eric – the game was a heart attack.

    I don’t blame you, but the Rangers out skated this team the whole game.

  268. Sioux Rangers in 6 on

    Z – I’m not so sure in the HOUSE of HORRORS

    Anything can happen in a game 7.

  269. ZzZz NYR ZzZz© on

    We made it to the Stanley Cup final before Chicago and LA , who woulda thunk?

  270. I have no idea what’s going to happen against either Chicago or Los Angeles (personally, I’m pulling for an original 6 SCP) but that the New York Rangers have wound up where they are when, back in October, you had nitwits calling for Vigneault’s head and crying for the halcyon days of John Tororella, Brandon Prust and Ruslan Fedotenko, you had dummies like me running Dominick Moore out of town on a rail, and when just 2 weeks ago it looked like this team was going to be headed humbly to the golf course by the Pittsburgh Penguins, is nothing short of remarkable.

  271. I am going to game 2 in LA if the kings make it…

    I am back after being banished for quite a while also.

    notice Richards did not play the last 4 or 5 minutes. he is bad in the d zone…

    diaz was fine. dorsett played well tonight also..

  272. My children will remember this day!! This one was for the fans, the true fans, not the so called.
