Yeah, I hear you ... they do happen, but Hank has had a lot of softies this year. I hope he and the team will tighten up down the stretch and look like a real competitor.

Thanks for the recap.
Hard not to get on Hank for that goal, but I hear you, Neill.
In two games back from the All-Star break, this team does not feel like the competitor we watched sweep the west coast before the break.

Sounds like this thing oughta be on, right? The travel ban has been lifted up here in the Pioneer Valley. I heard that things were pretty mellow in the city, but it sounded like that guy had been smokin greens all morning. What's the deal? Can the Rangers piece together a win tonight?

Awesome Game Winning Goal
Great play ... D. Moore doesn't get an assist, but his effort set that up

i only caught the last few minutes of the first, but that looked kinda lazy, no?

blog spoilers again ... got my gamecenter delay ... columbus has not scored yet
in the cap era, it makes no sense to pay anybody so much money ... one player doesn't make a team ... the guys you build around should get a little more, but if you demand a lot of money, that diminishes your supporting cast
i hate the business aspect
i wish more players would go the Zuccarello route and take contracts that fit them on the team and the team under the cap
Kreider always makes the same move -- from left to right, moving to the backhand -- and it usually doesn't go in. It's nice to see a couple get through of late and i hope we'll see more, but, besides getting the puck up on the backhand, he'll have to add other moves to his repertoire.
as much as they want to tell you theirs is the definitive article on the subject, scarcely does such an article exist on any subject. it doesn't come down to a choice between that chart and the "eye test." in fact, their are quite a few more analytics that could come into play, and the aforementioned article -- while definitely worth a look -- can be further scrutinized.
... but when it comes down to it, a good argument is to be made that Staal's trade value is greater than the return on the 6-year contract that is being suggested.

Perfect start to your write, up, Neill. I love hearing the Rangers fans at other arenas.
I only caught the first period via firstrow. No gamecenter feed. Looked like the blueshirts showed up (and I don't mean the damn cops) and I'm pretty elated about the outcome.
Another big one tonight. Here's hoping we've got plenty in the tank.

Oh, and Hank was sharp last night. Most reports have been saying that Hank has been Hank, but I need more. He's let in too many softies. He's going to have to tighten up big time moving forward.

Erixon is my avatar. Mr. extra effort. The Shadow. Huge fan here. Didn't put up big numbers but man he brought a lot to the team.
Mario Lemieux must have had nightmares about Erixon. Frustrated the fuck out of him.
@4tonynoluck @Say my Name
that finish by Kreider was almost the exact same move he missed on in one of the previous couple games. Remember that? Glad to see Kreider starting to click. Let's see him on the rise right through the post-season!
That was fun. I bet it was fun on the blog last night too. I should have stopped in. I was just getting ready to put my little boy to bed. He just finished brushing his teeth when I decided to check in on the game. Brassard scored and I thought I'd just watch another minute. Next thing I know, Kreider nets one. By this time the lad is standing by me, equally as mesmerized. "Okay, bed time!" And then Nash scores. When nobody scored another minute after the Boyle goal, I put the guy to bed. I should've checked out the blog, but I was quite happy drinking beer and practicing rudiments for the rest of the night. Nice to see the Rangers didn't take the rest of the night off, even if they didn't keep the pedal to the floor. The next three games promise to be of a different flavor. It will be a timely test and I think the boys up for it, but they'll sure have their work cut out. LGR !!!!!
Happy New Year, Folks!

are there any florida fans there?
i just saw fla's pp goal
the spoilers are welcome right now
Nash is playing both ends of the ice, once again, drawing the opposition and making plays ... it'd be nice to see him finish too
it's true though... Kreider had a couple of nice chances ... it'd be nice to see him bury some more of those
i hope so. kind of a dark year for him
oh, man, hope she's okay
good goal, i guess. he played tough to keep his position in front of the net and tapped one in.
if my Mom was making Christmas dinner, we were definitely having
lingonberries ... it's been a while, but it was every year when i was a
kid ... also cloudberries and lefse
i'm glad i spoke out! looks like he heard it
it's like i'm already a minute behind and then i get:
got the gamecenter delay going
Hunwick doing a nice job keeping it in the o-zone ... he should put on a clinic for our other D
hopefully he starts finding the net just in time for the post season!
he usually misses
... actually reminded me of two-year old kind of drama
Jimmy and Kevin are gonna get so stoned tonight
let's see how it goes .....
yeah, let's do that!
@KevinMccarthy @betweentheworlds @Hotfreak
Kevin's 6'5, isn't he?
no Glass tonight ... nice
let's take care of business tonight!
i'm going to defer to AV and Co for all hockey decisions. He's a successful coach with a lot more knowledge and experience than anyone commenting here. I'll agree that some of their decisions are head-scratchers from where we're sitting, but i know that behind those decisions there are good reasons that we will never know.
Haha... i can understand the sentiment after an underwhelming showing! ...not as bad as some of the errors on the ice!
Neill, I understand you were bugged, but it was a winning streak that came to an end, not a losing streak as you state in the first sentence.
Man, Hank let in some real softies too. I'm glad I didn't stay up for this one. It was a very winnable game. I don't care about the streak much, but I do care about the standings. The Blueshirts better bring their game tomorrow night. A few of these guys are going to have to wake up!
@Say my Name @IcyCup
does that hearing take place online? Google Court?
Miller's turn for the hat trick
sometimes it's tough not to pregame when it's a later start
that's a good pic for communicating the likeness ...
get a good one
@betweentheworlds @Say my Name
maybe i'll have another sip of wine
