Five For Howling
I haven't reacted like that over a hockey game since game 3 last year, and only because I WAS AT GAME 3.
W-O-W What a finish. I watched it and immediately shot it down as late. my god...
@thenyrblog ive got a brain freeze, rupp in, who is out?
@gsk1994 AA (illness)
@thenyrblog just added up (a while before I counted to 42). Illness? Or no public announcement of scratch after gunslinging?
@thenyrblog what's with the persistent torts hate from ranger fans?. Annoying more than anything
@ch1088 I think the hate is obviously from the very vocal Avery supporters baffled as to why Torts refuses to play him.
@thenyrblog I get that but he isn't that great. This is the best team we've seen in a while. Ppl should just shut up and enjoy.
@thenyrblog is Avery still scratched?
