FIRE OLGA LETS GO!!!!
Oh Can A Duh
Let’s get it on
Coos once upon a time we had a guy that could score, won every fight and every face off. He was captain too. Name eludes me at the moment

Don Vito Girardi.
Fredo “AV” Core lay own
Art Rooney Reffing tonight
Great job E3 !!!👌
The Captain. Number 11. Mark Mess E. Eh
‘Once, there was a way to get back home.
Once, there was a way to get back home.
Sleep, pretty darling, do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby…’
Ein Klein stuck with Shay
AV’s gym is soft.
Refs swallowing whistles in Montreal…weird…
McD with a soft retaliation.
One thing I can say about this team – unlike the Knicks, all the millionaires show up every night.
Nash in pre-season form skates right by puck
Gentleman complainers – start your engines!
some weird lines
Last night, our resident tough guy, #20, was crosschecked twice by a 5’8 midget, then @20 grabbed onto him and took an extra facewash for his troubles. Very encouraging.
AV on Shea Weber: “he’s no Yesper Fast!”
He shoots 🔫 SCORES …BOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Brady SHea on again for another goal… should we cheer yet?
That all began with the crap Grabner pass.
Put Hank in? Fire AV? Trade Raanta? Where’s ButterCup?
Rick Nash, for reasons perhaps beyond his control, has squandered a potential Hall of Fame career, and become little more than a talented afterthought. Sorry, Rickster, just callin’ it as I see it.
It is coming back!!
odds this gets overturned
1,00,000,000,000 to 1
Shaw affected that, but homerism should prevail.
wow – pigs flying over Montreal
Shaw leaned and over reacted
AHAHA I love the reaction. No sarcasm. The Habs fans should be the gold standard for emotion in NHL arenas.
Lets do this!!!!!
Dumbest rule ever adopted: Off side challenge. They take a speed game and turn it into a turtle event.
Raanta’s good again
Can’t believe we got that call in Montreal
The right call. Surprised they called it, though. Grabner relieved.
Norm – actually Klein started that mess by not keeping it in the zone
Let them eat cake!
FG – here ya go
Who can name the posters who were scrambling to delete their whines when the ref made the announcement?
The goal doesn’t count … but Klein and Skjei? Woof.
Here it comes…
Radulov with a slew foot on step goes on called
After that goal taken away, not likely NYR gets another call all game
I want our coach to watch Weber and Emelin shut his team down all night and then explain how defensemen don’t need to be shut down guys in front of their own net. Just skating passing puck movers..Who take tripping penalties..
I still like that call!
Klein, as he sharpens his goatee, looks more and more like a Devil. Traide him to NJ.
More Al Sue Port
I’m at the Panthers game and got a buzz that the Hads scored. I was like “here we go again with the early goals”. Next time I checked the app for something else, the avoid showed and the 1 for the Hads changed to a 0 right before my eyes! Woohoo!
Terrifible pass, e3. Klein couldn’t have kept it in, though he might have backed out and controlled it.
Norm – he who hesitates is lost. Klein hesitated.
VC making some nice plays away from puck and with it.
He who masturbates is boss.
Habs can scramble in their Dzone as well…
The fan’s aren’t saying Zuuuc, Sam they’re booing. This is Montreal
Good forecheck, bad luck for The on the preceding 2 on 1.
Kooz said pulling chain
Klein has regressed this season no doubt; needs to find the next gear.
Clendening looking like a hockey player on the bench. Nice patch job by Rammer
Both at fault, e3. I’m citing the first offender.
Can’t Salmon Joe just say Shaw is a POS
SN, I wonder how much of the deKlein in his game may be linked to an injury. Well documented that our coach will play veterans he trusts even if they’re hurt
Yup, Pirri really sucks on the PP.
that was fast, I mean, quick, I mean, Puree
Moderation again with the lemon juice!
It’s a Power Play Goal!
Klein and Shay are looking Bueno
Finaly, he justified his presence.
Damn now we’ll keep him!
Shaw is indeed an overrated POS.
It’s a shame that God gave such a rocket of a shot to a guy with so little hockey talent otherwise..
Pirri did something AGAIN. Shot was a little soft, though.
JG – I think so, never got into gear from the beginning.
Puree is 9th of NYR forwards in PP pts/60 so there is that…
eddie, now that you made Sergeant, can you get me out of moderation?
Purée needs some spice
High hard one
That was a rocket
If only 13, 36, 21, and some of the others would tee it up the way Pirri does, he could go away and they would be better players. But, no, it’s much more important to force “wish” passes.
Kooz – I know nothing
McD deserves a partner. So underrated.
If there is some chemistry, it is between THE and Zuk, as strange as it is.
that shot had eyes
Ricardo – FACT
Agree Carp but Pirri probably has best shot on team…him or Zibanijad
Pirri must be one of those “power play specialists” 9 of his 15 are with the man advantage.
Our lineup is polite to a fault. Not only are they kind to the opposition, they insist on letting the other guy on their line score.
Who got a high hard one?
Checking in late, who’s the poor schmuck who got skjelitis tonight?
Who made the wish pass to Pirri? 🙂
Price looked like he was afraid of Kreider on that Pirri goal 🙂
E3 is a paper tiger. Totally controlled by Doodie. Embarrassing.
Ok, thanks…I’m assuming when I go back and read later Klein will be really bad…no coincidence of course
I think Emelin was better than this guy Yemelin.
he was pretty brutal on the disallowed goal, Wick.
wick they were on the the goal against, which was wiped out
Casino Night!!! Yahtzee!!!
Emelin was too theatrical.
Nice dish by Petry
what the hell is Miller doing? Should have given a beat down to that punk
LikeLiked by 2 people
where the F are the Refs on that play?
He Shaw done got one, fo shaw
Cheap shot a lot like Proust on Stephan
who moves sower on pp, zucc or step?
What’s going on with Rangers here????
Bull crap ffs
get Zucc off PP- doing nothing out there
It’s unbelievable!!! Not even tried.
Miller is too soft.
I want to love him but aren’t there surprisingly long stretches of time where Zucc does absolutely nothing
What’s with all these teams (including us) back-passing on the rush? Suddenly everyone is doing this.
5 min major ..Lets no byfuglin this up!!!
coos, the PP drop-pass breakout is two years old, man!
Between periods, Gorton hands AV a handwritten note that says : Read this aloud at conclusion of tonight’s contest: “I thought we showed some effort and had some good looks.”
Matteau has a problem speaking English. Where is he from, Paris?
New two year- old break-out play? Ingenious!
Everyone’s in the toilet. Man, you guys are sooooo predictable.
Seriously, coos, where have you been, or are you talking about something else?
I’m not in the toilet. I’m in Albany…oh wait, yes I guess I am in the toulet
It’s called a Can
Valiquette reminds me of a tall blond broad.
Shaw stat line: 5:06, 1 shot; 22 Penalty minutes, 1 goal disallowed.
Good first game back from injury?
That’s how Sam Spade would describe him.
Better than being a broad tall blonde
Henk in goal??
What’s wrong with Auntie?
Oh f me
So much for getting healthy
No look shorty coming, 45 seconds in, complete with stare down of D
Rangers scrambling to find a backup goalie.
Couch on the bench. Or is it bench on the couch?
Step is statuesque on the PP
It’s Montreal. Every third pedestrian has goalie experience
Hank is now the kevorka
Someone call Father Marrin
FG 8:14 nailed it
Lance et compte!
I yoosed to think it was Ulfie who forgot how to coach. Guess not.
Don’t pass there, Shoot!
At least we now have more hits than giveaways. Or is that only bc of the exchange rate?
Rangers doing everything but scoring. Some truly awesome misses.
finally – butch with nice pass out of zone to Nash
What the Heck happened to Raanta? All I see is what you’ve posted about it.
He earned that one!
Maybe Raanta got traded between in jngs
should count – haze was not in crease/blue area
It’s coming back…
These challenges are the pits, the pits I tell ya!
We ARE getting both goal calls!
Loving Hank’s usual one goal-one shot stats though.
Price was way out of crease – should count – crazy game
Haze pulled Price from net with his skate
AV: “I thought we had some awesome misses.”
Let them play!
Let’s them play!
Nobody is better at drawing goaltender interference than price. Nobody.
Amazing they’re looking at this one. Price is never getting back for that one, though he did interfere with Hayes a little!
Hank doesn’t waste much time before he makes his presence felt…
I hate all these incompetent refs, but let them do their jobs and live with it. No replays!
Kenny Albert called it right. He said it happened outside of crease.
Refs didn’t want to get booed twice. Gutsy!
refs will need police escort out of arena
Like I said … Bingo!
Montreal coach looks like Rodney Dangerfield.
Hank will give Canada a gift here to soothe their achy breaky hearts
Panthers up 3-2 on the bj’s.
What happened to Raants?
Good goal thanks to Nash. But I think that those 5 min of PP was more crucial, b/c if Rangers could score second, it would be a great hit for Hab’s psyche and they are really vulnerably psychologically, which was shown when as a pretty good team, they lost few games with by the terrible scores.
This is a joke
Can we just put the house goaltender in?
Shea on the ice again…
Plenty of time…
Klein in never-never land
This Lundqvist guy ain’t good no more.
Steinbrenner just fired Hanks hair
What a sad situation. Klein is still looking around for a red uniform to kiss.
Two alone in the slot not the best defensive maneuver.
Does he habe a no-trade? Leave him exposed?
Scratch the last question mark. That wasn’t a question but a statement. And I didn’t even see the goal.
He got a No-Good. No need to expose him any more than he did all week.
Lundqvist isn’t changing my mine that he is starting to show his age but the rangers defenceman are brutal.
Brooks typing a boozy doozy as we speak
Jay Tea can score when not playing with Fast…
Some “great” defense by Weber on that one. Imagine if it was Subban? There would be pitchforks and torches outside of the dressing room
Give miller a molson
Nice by Hayes at both ends! Pass was a bit soft.
I like this Shady Bray guy. He’s good
Papa John’s goal
Two HOF goalies going through rough patches of late.
Rangers desperately need 2 goals difference for insurance. Can’t relay on this goalie anymore. De ja vue with Hank – come to replace Raanta , let two quick in – game over…
You call the Tet Offensive a “rough patch?”
Who ever thought that this team’s weak link would be hank?
Btw, while we all complain about Lundqvist, Price has allowed at least 3 goals in 7 of his last 8 starts.
Wasn’t a cabbage patch.
Sorry. Forgot I was on a delay. Still though wicked shortie.
Hans fans, who care about their hockey ten times more than we do, are stringing themselves up all over Montreal over Price.
I’m the pass-happiest guy on this blog, but that was ridiculous.
And McD bailed out by sliding partner.
Hitting Zucc makes you feel tough?
Donuts just beyond belief with THAT recovery. Wow.
Weber/Subban gratuitous comments? Why?
Lundqvist would getting murdered here, not just wounded, if he’d let in the goals Price has tonight.
Nothing to do with their quality as players, just treatment by coach, fans, and media.
I think our offense is about to go on a tear before the break
Wow, Buchnevich is some player.
NAsher in beast mode.
Nash had time to stop it and pass it in. Almost a great tip but unnecessary.
The real problem with our D is Klein’s totally unexpected steep decline in performance in comparison of the last season, McD’s unexplainable flops in the too few games and solid playing Staal absence. Skjei is not as big problem as it painted here by some, he is a rookie in process, has an upside and could be only better. Girardi, objectively, IS better this season (compare to horror story of last). Clandening is just a temporary cork in this bottle, sometimes leaking patch on the boat body…
Some years, a great offense is out best defense
…and, of course, here is Lundqvist problem…
I agree with 4ever’s take on the defense.
Please, please, Rangers don’t ruin such a good night, where Isles, Pens, Jackets are loosing…
Games in Montreal are fun to watch. The crowd there cares about hockey. Most arenas have been priced out of real hockey fans.
Would official scorer give lundquist the win or a save?
Raanta started, he wets the win.
Which win is that, now?
Hanks stick was off the ice again
Well, he wasn’t screened on that one.
Definition of “softie” before and “no more saves” on breaks
I been yellin about this overrated goalie for a while now. Time to trade him.
Follicle stealing defeat from the jaws of victory
Send him to hartford
Le House of Horrors
Pow, pow, pow. Rangers totally in control of this period until they weren’t. What a collapse!
Rangers have no business losing this game. This is bullsht
Hanka Hanka Hanka !
That one should be challenged. Couldn’t even changed goalie…Was such a winnable game.
3 goals in a minute and 3….
Thank god I’m at the Panthers game.
is the house goaltender available?
Worst thing is we don’t know what’s up with Raanta. We are stuck with shampoo boy
This is just stupid already
There’s obviously something wrong with the guy
Mystery injury him until it’s fixed
If Raanta can olay
We got Shampoo boy for 4 more years.
If Raanta is out for any period, the Rangers are slipping mightily.
Complete defensive breakdown all over the ice. Lundqvist shares the blame, to be sure, but with about 12 teammates. Terrible effort.
All Started with unnecessary icing and face-off loss
Honestly why people still get worked up over this group is perplexing. Their not bad enough miss playoffs and not good enough to win. Stuck in middle of no where with this core. We’ve seen enough series wins over last few years. Without a title who gives a crap
Lmao. They score.
Remember it was Lundqvist who was in net for the 5-0 breakdown loss against the Hads.
This is like a New Year’s Day alumni game
Doesn’t matter, it’s over with shampoo boy in net.
Maybe they steal a point back, maybe they don’t. Still the worst minute of the year. Guys are going to be cringing in the video room.
Go Panthers! Ugh
To the question: Without a title, who gives a crap? I do. I’m a Rangers fan.
Last year it was Girardi. This year it’s Lundqvist.
Shampoo boy thought he’d have the night off.
I just threw up in my mouth a little…
Back nine of his career.
2 goal leads blown in games 1 and 2 vs kings
Shutout game 5 and 7 vs Tampa at home.
Take those to your grave.
Norm, for two goals, yes. But the others? Yuck. Especially the Emelin one.
Klein to Silesian mines, Buchnevich back to Siberia, Hank to Hartford, AV – on guillotine.
Eric – your kids are gonna be really F’ed up
The Rangers would be better off with a shooter tutor in the net. Rants better heal quickly.
If raanta doesn’t get hurt, we would’ve won by now.
I hear ya but what will matter is April not January in Montreal.
They have zero shot staying in metro bracket
Isn’t that what you want – getting out of the metro bracket?
4-3 Panthers final here in Sunrise at least.
Radylov would have been a good pick-up,
I don’t think it matters where the rangers end up in the top 8, there one and done and if Raanta is out for a length of time they might fall out of the top 8.
Yes it is . 4th in metro is the spot.
I look at long term success it starts their.
How many times has the puck jumped over Mcdonagh’s stick tonight?
Hard to play a worse game than this. Three leads given back, the third spectacularly so. Mirror time.
Admiral Akbar ,
What happened with your post before? Speechless with so many bleeps?
I wouldn’t argue with that
Playing in Atlantic gives them shot.
No way survive metro 2 rounds.
I don’t understand?
It’s a trap!
For this game though complete meltdown.
Band of sorrows.
Probably better in the long term that they don’t score and fool themselves into thinking they didn’t completely crap the bed. That said, score!
Hanka 9 goals in less than 5 periods of play.
That game was sheet
Never mind, Admiral… Nothing important compare to this terrible lost.
Not impressed with Montreal.
I’m not wasting my time on post game comments and excuses.
Look at the good news–great win for the Habs.
well, it looks like Lundqvist is going to get his wish and play a lot of games going forward, hold on boys, this could get dicey.
I like this euphemism – “Hank try to find his game”, instead of – he just sucks…
Gonna take another six-pack to kill the taste of this game. Better get started…
So we get 4 on Price and lose because shampoo boy can’t hold the fort for 2 periods. Ugh.
.850 save percentage
“Hank try to find his game”? Just look in the net.
the troll is out – the laughs are on him
This is almost as sickening as the 5-0 blown lead…. Hanka in goal for that one too.
Eric why do you keep saying 4th in metro. it’s almost 50/50 whether 4th or 5th crosses over. It’s not at all certain that metro team will have best record
And just think…….4 more years at $8.5 Million.
Hey. If Hanka can’t turn it around by the end of next season , he can Ben light out… right?
Tough loss. It’s just a game, i am going to let it ruin my weekend.
I will say it again this is the Hank we get for the rest of his contract. Good D bad D makes no difference! Hank finding his game not happening! This team is in deeplace trouble!
Why were Pirri and Clendenning on the ice with a minute to go? No Nash, miller, Hayes, or Buchnevich?
Would Henk waive his no move/trade?
I think they had a shift prior to that… I could be wrong tho
Odds this will happen again?
AV genius! We need a back stop!
Just caught up with dvr’d game…ouch!
Those face offs….just saying.
8.5 mil per…just saying.
I voted hated, no Doritos, and gnash…in no particular order
On two goals by mtl who ever was Klein’s D partner left him high and dry in front of the net in no mans land while they were no where to be found behind the net covering no one
Hated, no Doritos, gnash.
Who are three guys who were on the bench with Hank pulled.
That’s a rough one. Lundqvist going through the toughest stretch of his career this season. I’ve been hard on him but some of you guys…Jesus..Watch, with Raanta out and no one to keep him “well rested” he’s going to start playing his best hockey of the year. “Without Raanta we’re going to fall out of contention”? Cmon guys.
This was a game that at the least garnered one point
Hank seems mentally not there
Mcd not plsying his usual plsy either. What is going on? All focus?
I also have to speculate that av will now make miller a healthy scratch for standing up for a teammate.
Oh I’m with you
Big difference between JT Miller and McIlrath
One was waived and nobody grabbed him. That would not be the case with Miller
The capitals will run away with east and be 1 seed. Montreal won’t have Better record therefore 4th in metro
Wick, is this movie “John Wick” about you?
I thought Purple was the best player in the game tonight, along with Hated and Good One (in no particular order). And in addition to the relief goalkeeper, the captain wasn’t very good at all, IMO. And 76-8 were a disaster.
in summary, AV was a bad coach tonight, and McDonagh was a bad captain.
From larrys weekly article. Even though I respect his career (probably more than most) I think Larry can take probably out of his narrative
“In the course of conversation the other day, Dan Girardi mentioned off-hand he never had won the Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award. Somehow, that seems impossible. Because there sure aren’t many who have come down Broadway the past decade or two who have put their bodies on the line and who personify the meaning of extra effort more than the alternate captain.
And if Girardi doesn’t win it this time in the fans’ vote — and let’s be realistic, he probably won’t — a lifetime achievement award, maybe?
January guys stop with gloom and doom…Hank looks pissed and will turn it around….think it’s time to give Graves a look
Hankie better get his head outta his azz. I am waiting for that reassuring popping sound. This was a winnable game but for 1 minute 2 seconds.
I was in no way, shape, or form comparing those two. Not sure why you are so hung up on mcilrath.
It might be 😉
There are so many games I (thankfully) haven’t watched this year. Way far above norm.
So I guess the comeback in Columbus is now a wash, eh?
Why do the Rangers stop skating on a power play? Is AV telling them that if they draw a penalty, they can use it as a two minute break? They stand around and play “Keepaway” with the puck, almost as if they are killing a penalty, not trying to score on it. Maybe that’s why AV never calls timeout. He probably tells the players,”You don’t need a time out- you can rest during our power plays”. Very frustrating to watch. That five minute major was especially tough to watch.
