Man, i am Happy!! :D na na na na, hey hey, goodbye Craps! Ludnqvist is simply the best in the world. Back-to-back shutouts in game 6-7, unbelievable. Congrats to the players and all you fellow fans! Let's get those Bruins. LGR!!
Found two transplanted "yankee" Ranger fans to watch the game in Greenville, NC. We all grew up in NJ. One guy came in full Ranger gear with a Ranger goalie mask. The other brought his Gretzky doll for good luck. We made a pact to watch every game together after tonight. I made my dog piss on the floor for the second straight night after Callahan's goal. GREAT NIGHT!
we won that game because of Hank, and that steal and goal by Cally in the third. Destroyed any hope of a Caps comeback.
Only bad thing is that now we loose our home announcers. Almost prefer to turn off the sound than listen to Emrik. Eddie O is good but... Oh well - very happy to get another round!
@Medvjed004 Going to be a war!
@NYRfanInNC poor dog
Thank goodness we don't have to hear about that for about 50 weeks. But then the caps will be favored in round one of the playoffs and the world will forgets that Holtby SUCKS and start pumping his tires again.
@AnnoyingJoe ice burn
@IcyCup2 Hank 4th goalie in NHL history to win game 6 and 7 via shutout...
@jmacwilli My guess would be Thur since both teams played tonight
None of our goals were that soft, though. Asham's was probably the easiest save, and at the time it seemed like I an awesome snipe
@cb1 hey! go study ur gtts ML conversions
@IcyCup2 Could happen. He looked good tonight. Chara is going to be his new girlfriend though. Will not be easy for him.
@craig_atherton No! its ur playoff beard.
@greggray24 you can just feel emrik's disdain for the rangers.
@NYRfanInNC better get used to it...
@GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG Ha ha. yeah....sort of like hanging with you guys:)
@greggray24 yup. talking about irrelevant shit while the rangers are making good plays. he's a real shitbird.
