Diehard Rangers & BU hockey fan
Can we be positive for a moment and take small comfort in the fact that net-crashing Kreider showed up tonight, and not tentative torts Kreider? I know he has an edge with fresher legs but he really looked like a dog who broke the chain and ran through the neighborhood tonight

@Bleed_the_freak @Hockey1982@kingmessierKreider made a difference tonight
What was wrong with our battle level? I thought we were killing it on our forecheck, we forced a ton of turnovers and we were creating an abundance of quality scoring oppurtunities. Does battle level just mean total goals scored? Kreids, McD, Cally, Hags and zuk in particular all stood out to me in creating these chances. I know its been awhile since the rangers have generated so much offense where you could say that the opposing goalie "stole" the game but I felt that's what happened tonight. Bishop had our number. We're gonna roll over Detroit on Thursday if we keep this battle level up.

@JohnScibior@TheNYRBlogHe's gotta be this year's Brad Richards, right? Held out with his contract, didn't take his mental and physical conditioning seriously, not the same player.

Not getting Gryba was a mistake. The kid is a mad animal. When I went to BU hockey games he would sit in the penalty box and anyone close could here him talking to himself about who he's going to destroy when he's out. And then he did.

"Speaking of a "home ice advantage", the Garden was so quiet tonight
I'm positive I overheard a Brian Boyle and Mats Zuccarello conversation
on the bench talking about the pretty girl in the third row..."
During the Montreal Game, maloney and the announcing crew kept noting how much energy was in the building, and specifically something to the extent of, "its always been a loud plance, and perhaps its only getting louder these days". WTF. Is there any goddamn reason in the world we can't have this? We're a goddamned original six team, you go to a leafs habs hawks bruins or wings game all their buildings are loud. Its beyond sad whats happened to MSG. Dolan can take his chase bridges and luxury box's and shove em. I'd rather play in the nassau f***ing colliseum if it meant a crowd presence. Neil, you joke about hearing a conversation about the pretty girl but at one point in the game you could clearly hear a single young fan chanting let's go rangers. Its so awkward and depressing when no one else wants to join in. /rant

MSG will always be a goddamn morgue with an overhwhelming amount of people in the building being rich manhattan folk with their suit and loosened up ties drinking too much and chilling on their smartphones, seemingly wishing they were anywhere else except for the fact they need to throw up a sick instagram or tweet their experience
I gotta be honest-- I could give two s***s if cally and mcD get injured IF they help team USA bring home gold. Following team USA in 2010 was such an inspiring and thrilling experience in my life and easily some of the best hockey I ever saw. That team played with such grit and heart, with their red white and blue jerseys I almost forgot parise was a devil. Id be so disheartened to not see my favorite rangers representing team USA and making the rangers and our country proud with their undying effort and passion

@gravey94 I like your first point. For all the screwin' around torts did with kreider all year, i wonder if kreider's development ever gets to the point where hes throwin down seidenberg twice in one shift given his seemingly reserved demeanor. Could very well be that torts' managerial style gives kreider another tool in his arsenal that his career may not have otherwise had

Does anyone know where I can hear Kenny Albert's call of the goals? I love re-listening to the rangers announcer's calls of the goals from the game. Especially when I have to listen to the NBCsports unbiased announcers

As much as im pumped about tying up the series and the big win tonight, does anyone else have serious concerns about the way this team plays (aside from Nash concerns) ? I went to the game and to me it looked like they weren't playing playoff hockey the first 2 periods. They lose all the battles on the sideboards and because of this it seems they can never generate consitent pressure. Now, i will say this wasn't the case in the third period. Even with the lead they were trying to protect, they weren't as on their heels as the first two periods. But it still worries me that they don't have consistent jump as a team

we need STAALSY back. Our PP looked so much better when they took richards off the point and replaced him with staal but then he got hurt and we looked like poop again

I think your a bit too hard on the top line right now. They're getting matched up constantly by the top defensive pair because teams can throw their 3rd line defensive pair at the rest of our lineup and shut them down no problem. If we ever settle our depth issue (we need a 2nd line that doesnt put up 4th line stats like nobody's biz), we should get great production out of them. We need kreider to step it up big time cause hes the only other forward on our team that can create space and be a real game changer

I friggin HATE LeBrun on ESPN. He thinks hes so insightful and provoking by saying that the rangers are at a 'crossroads'. F*** him. The rangers are at a crossroads cause they lost to a great team whilst not having the vezina leading goalie playing and 2 of our top D men + the captain? I hate the crap ESPN NHL puts out theyre like the FOX news of hockey news

100% right about that. Ive seen Kreider play in 3 games this year against BU and the team plays to contain Kreider. BC lost alot of their top guns last year leaving Kreider as their best player

Big game tonight...on the gaborik thing, I agree hes alot more effective with his shot, but hes gotta deke sometimes to keep the goalies honest--if the scouting report was he shot every time his shot would become less potent
