In fact Josh we r gonna start calling u Billy Madison cause the following quote applies to most of ur comments....Mr. Madison, what you just said is the most insanely idiotic thing I have ever heard. At no point in you incoherent rambling response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. We are all now dumber for having had listened to it. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul!!
Great win and all but I still can't get over how bad Richards is! You have a 5 on 3 with 5 forwards on the ice, and the guy you pay 12 million dollars this year is not on the ice. Also the caps rookie, Wilson, played a little more than 5 minutes even strength, exactly what Richards played.. Don't even give him another year buy him out, and let Lindberg be our third line center!
Glad to be back on the blog and reading you all today ... what a game .....
I LOVE HOCKEY !!!!!
LET'S GO RANGERS !!!!!!!!!
Gotta think a little tonight for a pump up post for tomorrow....got the title...have to think about the rest
Wow just wow. I cannot believe tomorrow it is! I will have trouble sleeping tonight! Looks like more chicken for dinner, gotta get a long run in, sit on the floor, etc. this was hands down the best played game of the year. Both goalies were crazy.
What is the chance green gets suspended for game 7? Yea 0 percent chance, he's playing against the Rangers. But that was a dirty play!
Vintage Rangers Henrik needs to be perfect for rangers to win. PP gonna be the death of both them and me. Go Henrik Go Rangers
Hank has played some good games as a Ranger, but tonight he was on a different planet! His best game as a ranger! I believe! LGR!
i feel bad for duguay. even though he has a nice jacket on, he no longer has drapes in his dining room.
Wow. Unbelievable game that SHOULDN'T have been so close. I have never seen a more inept PP in my freaking life. Thank the hockey GODS for Lundqvist
so far so good but flourishing is still a bit extreme. He is the hotest ranger on offense right However a good coach would have at least 2 guys on the team that could score. Brassard only guy who seems to hit the net. And Henrik is the reason the win. They played another 3rd period Torts defense only worked today but
R U ready to agree w-me that Brassard is flourishing under Tors? BTW he got over 25-minutes of Ice time in game-5
Now u r starting on Richards? Why cause u look so stupid for saying bench Nash & he played great. Richards played about 7-minutes tnite & ur focusing on him? Meanwhile u have never seen Lindbergh play and ur saying make him the 3rd line center. I think I speak for a lot people here when I say u think out ur ass & it's guys like u who give NY fans a bad rap. Enjoy the win a win U DIDN'T THINK WOULD HAPPEN. Smarten up!!!!!
not for nothin' .....
