St. Louis Game Time
Kevin Klein in a fish called wanda: "Oh, Oh, you English are *so* superior, aren't you? Well, would you like to know what you'd be without us, the good ol' U.S. of A. to protect you? I'll tell you. The smallest fucking province in the Russian Empire, that's what! So don't call me stupid, lady. Just thank me."... Had to throw that out there.
How do we get our hands on Backes aside from trading half of the team? The guy is a monster and hits anything that moves.... My type of player.... Blues are clearly a superior team, though we did keep up for the most part. We could not keep up with their size. Their team is ginormous. But that is how the western teams are built. Highlight of the nite was Zucc hitting Backes....love to know what was said between the two...
the "rock guitar" behind the highlights is unbelievably lame. i'd be happier just listening to the commentary.
decided to turn the islanders game on to hopefully watch them lose, holy shit their arena is LOUD compared to the garden....wat a shame
Good night all! Don't get down! Good effort against a superior team. I feel better about not blowing everything up after watching the last few weeks.
This just shows us where we need to get to to compete for a cup.
Whelp, 2nd place was nice while it lasted. By this time next week we could be back on the outside of the playoffs looking in.
About to go watch something so much better than watching these boys figure skate for 60 mins... Jersey Shore! Snooki. Love that short bitch.
If we don't beat both the devils and the isles outside I am going to be pissed. And if they can't score on fatso I may just take a break from this team for a week to put my hand through about 5 walls.
If Callahan wants more than 5 a year then thanks for your service. Enjoy bumfuck buffalo and get moulson.
@iwantgaborikIts not just Cally. This team as too many non productive players IE: Brassard, Poulit, Boyle, Hagelin to start who are suppose to support the top line sometimes. They are just not good enough
it sounds like a childs toy guitar demo song
need to finish at the bottom and get the first pick in a blue chip rookie year for that to happen
hate to say it but tavares has really turned into something nice.......yesss pitt just scored
@PacNYR44 There tickets cost like 40$
A whole lot bigger and stronger. Clearly outplayed in both creases and boards. Can't just be quick. But don't know if St. Louis did much other than out muscle us. If not for lucky first goal we prob picked up a point. Clearly a ways to go before we become a top level team
aaaaaaaaaaand.... I'm out - nite boys!
That IS a happy ending!
@KreiderisTheChosenOne Id rather just not resign him not even worth it
sometimes the other team is just better
Would love to, but dropping the two stadium games isn't beyond this group. Another chance for the Carrillo effect, but that's been MIA since the flyers game
"Maybe he is coasting not to get hurt for the Olympics, who knows"
Dude... I think we've seen a lot of that this year. A lot.
@IcyCup @Bleed_the_freak 10 hours removed from the loss, and I know you guys are right. Was just unimpressed with the Rangers level of effort. Too many guys seemed to be reaching and drifting. You're right, this isn't a loss to go nuts about, but it's one I think we could have stolen (just like Chicago) and need to steal going forward to keep a comfortable hold on a playoff spot.
5 points separate us in second, from the Caps in 7th.
Also just find myself hating the MSG Curse. Too often oppontents are more excited to be here than our own guys. Homecoming for Shatternick, after growing up in New Rochelle, scores the GWG. Probably just a coincidence, but the overall point is one of the reasons we struggle to have a good home record.
Who's Carcillo? But seriously, anything can happen. Watch them blow up for 7 or some absurd number each of those games. Win some and lose some. Blues are freaking good and the score was only 2-1
