...big time props to Rangers fans for acknowledging Boyle's efforts by giving him a huge ovation when he left the ice for the second intermission.
@thenyrblog do you have link to video of the last minute of the period? Unfortunately didn't get to see the game
Don't forget last year NYR made it MANDATORY to wear gloves with extra padding for blocking shots. Is that still a thing this year? ...I'm sure it is. craziness! Gotta love this team!!
I am extremely proud of the entire Rangers team and what they are doing to win. But during the intermission, even Dave Maloney questioned the wisdom of all of these blocked shots, especially if they result in injury, like we've seen many times the past few years.
people like Boyle and Fedoitenko (and Stralman) who aren't scoring are doing a helluva lot more things on the ice to help us win. Fans need to see that.
Playing great, call me supersticous, but im not taking my rangers hat off, since i put it on they are on a 5 game win streak...oh yeah!!!!
@thenyrblog oh it does make me proud!!
The only reason they had to make those late blocks was because Boyle went down on the initial shot by Hamonic. While swimming around on his belly, Boyle swung his stick at the puck and gave it right back to the Isles.
I love their heart and passion...BUT...they have one of the best goalies in the league. Let him earn his $$$ by making the save. Blocking shots they way they do is just going to lead to injuries like it did last year. We need these guys on the ice, not on ice. I'm proud of the way they fight and compete, but sometimes discretion is the better part of valor.
that was intense - our guys looked so beat up after the second period, it hurt just watching them skate off. So damn proud of them.
@thenyrblog ugh. i cant spell. im trying to be an obnoxious brat and i cant spell. PROUD
@thenyrblog YOU make me pround to be a rangers fan (laughing inside as i type this)
@NYRfan46 I don't mind guys like Feds, dubi, Boyle, and Prust blocking shots. I cringe when I see Cally or stepan try to block a slapshot, no reason for those guys to be doing it. Like you said like the king make the save cause sometimes trying to block a shot that might not even hit the net will cause a screen, bad deflection, or even worse an injury.
@nikkifriction Serves you right. lol
@thenyrblog you going to have a live feed for 24\/7 tomorrow?
@thenyrblog haha yeahhh yeahh
