  1. John Forslund on the call. I guess Tripp Tracy could not make it so we get Pierre McGuire instead.

  2. BTW……Who names their kid “Tripp” anyway? Is it a shortened version of “Tripper?” Darryl Cartrip?

  3. I would give Stall a green light to shoot at the net from anywhere. He’s sure to hit some ankles and heels. Maybe someone could put a Kia logo on karlsonn’s skate? I keed, I keed or do I.

  5. I didn’t expect this to be easy and I expected Ottawa to come out harder. But I didn’t expect the Rangers to look so flat after their opening.

  6. I already saw Kreider pull up once on a great opportunity to hit a guy as he released the puck. He looked like he was going to do it then reached his hand out to brace himself against the guy and hit the brakes. That guy sucks in using the tools he’s got available.

  7. Funny how atrocious play by Smith and Skjei in their own end almost leads to a goal for us. Kinda like when players yell at the stupid guy on the blackjack table and then don’t thank him when they pull a 21 three hands later

  9. Once again there’s Stepan w the chance for a point blank shot on the pp and opts for a pass to a man who’s getting covered

  10. Sorry but there’s no need for that pass. Stop looking for the open man when YOU ARE the open man. Especially in prime real estate on the PP

  13. Quickie is Fast’s nickname on his team, I think. I can’t even remember the chain of things that led to his being “Couch” here. There are more than a few stale nicknames on this site: Machine, Hated, Doritos… it’s what makes this the best worst site on the interwebs. I can never keep them straight.

  14. Ottawa with much more life this game, a few sustained forechecks in P1. Score is about right, I’d say, but it would be lovely to consummate this delightful opportunity, which looked good up to the Step overpass.

    Like

  15. Fast was named “Couch” for a good portion of this season by a large swath of the citizenry of Bonehead Nation. The implication was Fast was a soft player. Also, same people could not understand AV’s favoring of Fast.

    Amazing how the tune has changed now.

  22. Hayes is still the only Ranger that hasn’t come to play a single game in the postseason. Kreider had shown up in one game. Stepan has shown up in this series regardless of how he’s playing….which is sucky.

  25. I don’t want Karlsson too hurt to play. I want him hurt just enough so he can still play but at an incredibly diminished level so they don’t put in a serviceable guy. Plus a lot of the offense runs through him so it makes our strategy easier. If someone else comes in were got to reconfigure. I like it just how it is.

  42. So Karlsson is hurting, Brass has been invisibie, Anderson has a 4.00 GAA over the last 3 games, AV’s adjustments paying dividents, Boucher’s haven’t plus the Sens 1-3-1 hasn’t done much of anything BUT…NBC thinks that Ottawa made a statement in the third period to set the tone for Saturday?

  43. Michael, the chants usually last an unfortunately short amount of time. They take a while to get loud. Henrik chants used to last three times as long and if you can easily hear the Potvin sucks whistle during a playoff game, that’s not necessarily a good thing. It’s even worse when there’s a half-assed response to it.

  48. I am loving these Rangers. Awesome D, terrific offense, solid goaltending, and everyone contributing. And as the stepmom of a Tanner Glass style player who spent most of his 10 year pro career in the AHL, I am positively thrilled for #15. Glass played great tonight and deserved his star and his interview with Pierre.

  49. Another HUGE win!

    Great to see guys standing up for eachother. I don’t trust Burrows or Phaneuf. Expecting some thing ugly in game 5 from one or both of them.

    Dion Phaneuf- 4 more years @$7M. Ouch!
    (Karlsson only makes $6.5 million.)

    I had Lindberg, Nash and Nash, but it was all about the team effort. Good for Holden scoring an impressive goal and gaining more confidence.

    He’s going to need a pay-cut and maybe only 1 year.

  52. That’s two straight games where they dominated the Senators. Let’s hope they can keep it up on the road.

    During the game I was trying to think of who I would pick for the 3 stars. I couldn’t pick just 3 because it seemed that everybody contributed.

    I don’t think the Senators are going to try to rough up the Rangers in game 5 like Montreal tried to do. It’s not really their character. If you make them do something they’re not comfortable doing, then they’ll implode.

    After seeing the all the cross checking, slashing, boarding stuff that didn’t get calls during the playoffs I got a chuckle with the Methot penalty against Zucc. It was really not much of anything. During the year people were saying the Rangers needed a sandpaper guy. I think Zucc tries to get under the skin of the opponents. He’s not as nasty as a guy like Marshand, but he can be a pain in the assen.
