It will be another ugly goal like Hayes'. They need to drive the net. Fleury will crack

That would have negated his entire mediocre season!!!
Nash is getting pissed. My pick for GWg. He will take over a shift before this game ends
And a warm glass of milk
He'll come on if this goes to OT
Man...msl can't even dump it in...
It hit him in the logo...fwap fwap fwap....
Just cracked open another Dales Pale Ale tall boy. Red white and Blue, I think this one will do the trick...
Every series that goes longer is good news

I don't know how NBC pulled it off, but the icing on the Pierre McGuire cake is this play by play guy who seems to have the wrong stat sheet. At one point I think he said mcdonagh was out with a broken arm, then said Keith Yandle is still looking for his first point of the post season and is -6. ...and then Pierre went back to talking about the Penguins....
Good job G, stopping your own shot...

What's he doing on the ice this late in the game?
You didn't mention the Penguins...or where the sidewalk went to college

Any chance torts is in the area for a locker room ass chewing.
Easily our worst period in a while, but only down 1-0 and honestly Pitt didn't have many quality chances. But these boys need to wake up. It looks like November out there. Can these guys really not psych themselves up to take a lead in a series??
So I'm over here watching the Pens feed with Pierre on NBCSN...
While I'm sure they know they don't want to be playing defense for 20 minutes, I'm just not sure they're have the system to be aggressive with a 1 goal lead. He ranger play best when they're defenseman join the rush. But could you imagine the backlash if the Penns score on an odd man rush because mcD or Staal left their spot?? It would be WW3.
You could see them trying to maintain possession down low, but no one wants to be the guys who blew his back checking assignment because he got caught in deep.

You know that riff got a direct deposit this morning for protecting Sid. Wouldn't want your prized possession getting hurt in a skirmish.
@HJB91 At this point I know I shouldn't be surprised, but I still am. The constant ass kissing that the NHL and NBC gives the Penguins is just mind boggling. I'm not even sure Pierre McGuire gets a paycheck; I think he just steals a mic, shows up between the benches with and then proceeds to drool all over the Penguins. The way NHL and NBC are covering this, you'd think the Penguins were the President Cup Winning, defending EC Champion, President's Trophy winning team in this series.

Once again, Pierre calling the game as if the Pens are winning

Pretty sure Pierre is the one doling out favors
Perry just got my vote
So...where did they find this hockey player wearing #15?? I mean, he's not lighting the world on fire, but he is getting shots on net, playing defense, receiving passes and not turning it over. It's like he's been playing possum for 2 years. Maybe being back in Pitt motivated him? Maybe AV told him that as soon as we're trailing in this series Sheppard is getting a shot?
Has Perry shown up in the playoffs for Anaheim?
Average is a huge improvement for him
I almost brought up plus minus, but my fingers got tired. Glass has a career -5 in those 39 games. Amazingly all 5 were with Vancouver. Pitt knew the risk of playing him in important moments (ie the playoffs)

Traveling to a Ranger game has always been a fun adventure for my wife and I. Although some teams are trying to crack down on the fun...
5 days, 7 hours ago on Conversation @ http://nyrangersblog.com/2015-articles/rangers-fans-best-chance-to-catch-playoff-game-is-on-the-road.html
Tanner Glass has 1 goal, 0 assist in 39 career playoff games, average TOI of 7:36.
James Sheppard has 7 points in 26 games, average TOI of 11:03, including 2 goals and 4 assists in 7 games last year.
Who do you think Dom Moore would prefer to play with?
Hell, at this point I'd take Sheppard over Fast, just to give our 4th line some fresh blood.

On multiple occasions last night AV either chose, or had no choice but to, deploy the 4th line after we scored a goal or on offensive zone face offs, both utterly killing momentum.
The fact that Pitt was able to get Crosby into favorable match ups as the away team, is partially, maybe totally, driven by these numbers and the fact that our 4th line is so unreliable to generate offense or play defense. Shepard is a point per game in the playoffs and needs to be in for game 3. Our 4th line will get eaten alive in Pitt if simply plays to give Crosby favorable match ups to start draws.
I'm dumbfounded that were even having this conversation, that AV can't take off his blinders and put the best roster on the ice.

Did you see Kunitz almost hug the refs? He almost blew their cover!!

Everyone else just see Pierre go back into the dressing room with the pens? BJ time!!
We all said that when he scored in that blow out in Montreal last year...look how that turned out
Nash adds another useless playoff goal to hit stat sheet
In the Rangers defense we've spent almost 1/3 of the game on the pp
Playing like he's not interested
This apparently just a playoff thing...squeezing too hard. Regular season he taps in Zuccs pp feed. Playoffs it his his stick while he's not watching. Unreal..this guy is just snake bit
At this point Pitt really doesn't have any reason to not take penalties...
Go easy, we didn't sign him for his D. He's here to fix our PP
5th time will be the charm...
Completely agree. It's actually terrible for the game that so many top picks are wasting away in Edmonton. Imagine if you distributed that talent around the league? Lots of small markets would love a face for their franchise. Instead Edmonton is on their 4th do-over
I still can't believe a guy with the last name strombolopolus got this far without being told to change his name....
@MIngles Buy gamecenter next year, worth every penny. Although when games start at 4 pm for you, that might be an issue too.

@4tonynoluck @SteveFalcon I can't believe I'm going to do this, but Pierre agreed that it was a penalty. His commentary was basically "what is this guy (downie) doing? How dumb can you be to take a penalty like that at this point in the game?" Pierre actually went on to say the Pens should scratch Downie in game 2, which makes sense, because he clearly calls the games as if he got the Pens GM job last summer.
@wherewasi Boyle drove me nuts last night. He was an absolute disaster on the PP in the first period, trying to stick handle between all 4 penguins more than once. And then, I believe on the same shift, circled back into his own zone, got chased, coughed up the puck, which led to a Pitt short-handed opportunity.
I'd love to say that when Klein is healthy Boyle should have to battle Hundwick for the #6 spot, but I know that won't happen.
Miller played well. Hayes looked nervous. Needs to get over that quickly.

Rangers are going to need to find another gear if they want to keep this short. That kind of effort in game 2 probably won't be a win
I feel like a few guys are trying to figure out "how much energy can I conserve this series?"
Pierre honestly thinks the Pens are winning right now
