  1. This wil be the game of motivations: desperate Philties against frosty indifferent Rangers. Add Add habitual losing attitude at home…I just hope for our guys to avoid injuries, doing something stupid.

  2. Mustn’t win?! So they can just go into the playoffs slumping and just flip a switch against Carey Price? Cmon. Beat the fn flyers and win a home came for once. Oy.

  3. Come. On! The ONLY line applying pressure is the 4th line. The rest are just floating. This is the issue I have with this year’s team and if you can’t see it, you’re blind! These games are NOT meaningless. They need them to tune up for the playoffs.

  4. From now on, I’m calling it their foreglide…. because it certainly isn’t a forCHECK. When’s the last time an opposing team’s D had to take a freaking hit???

  5. Rangers had a few good chances early and shot it right into goalie. Rangers as usual making some no name goalie look good. This game reminds me of a bunch of games rangers have played this year. They start out good but can’t score, slowly the Flyers will start coming on and score a goal and the rangers will melt into the night.

  6. Youse guys are too bummed out to root for the Rangers anymore. Take a break and root for the Harlem Globetrotters for awhile, until you get over it.

  9. It was unforgivable turn over in such a simple situation and than all five just playing pylons, hypnotized by and watching puck, moved to inevitable goal.

  10. It’s a good thing we don’t have to gave the jackets in the first round. They’ve never won a playoff round and you know what that means when it involves the Rangers.

  11. The only playoff situation I would truly fear would be playing a team that:

    1) Has never won a playoff series
    2) Is starting their unproven rookie or journeyman backup goaltender

    That would be recipe for out in 5.

  18. Pliny the Elder is ridiculous. I once paid $15 for a flight of Pliny the Younger – that was even better, but once was enough. Before my daughter was born, I was a regular at a place that had Blind Pig on tap on the regular, and Pliny the Elder more often than not.

  19. It was I who proclaimed Lindberg will turn into the next Franz Nielsen. The Golden Knights would be stupid to choose any other Ranger available.

    Thanks again, Gary Butthead.

  22. They’ve been a horrible team this year when the opposing team pulls there goalie, they cannot get the puck out of there zone, it’s mind boggling and the rangers defense still stinks, main reason they will go no where in the playoffs.

  24. They have no clue of what to do in this situation. In the past, they’ve been happy to give other teams the perimeter, clog the shooting lanes, and let Hank take care of anything in the clear. They’re not nearly the shot-blocking team they once were, Hank’s been a bit closer to…mortal…these past 2 seasons. That old strategy ain’t working.

  27. If hank gives up a rebound on that Giroux shot, it’s a flyers goal because the midtown rambler had lost his man voracek…good thing hank held on to the puck

  28. You always want to put your best foot forward, give 110%, all that mumbo jumbo. But honestly, this is a team that’s dead in the playoffs if they climb into 3rd Metro. Barring an epic collapse, they aren’t falling to 2nd wildcard. So work on your game, don’t take needless injuries, conserve some energy, and do what you need to do. We all saw how “playing every game like its your last” worked out for them in the standings last season.

  30. If actually rather be in the 3rd spot in the metro. At least we’ve beaten the team that we’d be facing in the first round.
    Everybody talks about how we want to avoid Washington, the jackets and pitt but if we can’t win the first round anyway, who cares?

  31. Here I was drinking my tea humming happily to myself about this little gem of a win – structured defense and opportunistic offense. And then the last 3 minutes happened. What the actual f***? That was the worst 3 minutes of hockey they played all year. Outplayed and outcoached. Roenick and Milbury were actually correct – sheer stupidity by Kreider, Stepan, and Smith. Jesus. But I guess a win is a win is a win….

  32. Well, they’re almost certain to play Montreal in the first round. Adjust to it, plan for it, think back to the 7 years in a row out of the playoffs, and Smile, Brother, Smile.

  33. TroutWig with the sign off..They have clinched the 7th spot in the East…sorta sounds underwhelming but in Buttman’s world with losers getting a point every time they lose It doesn’t sound as bad plus we have more points than any Atlantic Team so in reality we are in 4th right now
