Game 4: Rangers vs. Caps-Eastern Conference Semis
Let's try to keep it civil, folks.

BigDaddyNYR 05-05-2012 02:26 PM

Referee stink.....more then ever.

And Del Zotto...come one man!! You were horrible today.

Moosehead777 05-05-2012 02:26 PM

Typical NBC bias. I couldn't believe it when Olczyk said that...

Man this team never can never give any breathing room can they. This might be going to 7 games also. I really think they have to win the next game though.

Ih8theislanders 05-05-2012 02:27 PM

Bottom line is even though we had a very off game, we could've easily won. I'm still very confident in this series. And we split our away games. Win Monday and end their season in their own house.

How can you like Arsensal and Liverpool???
I am what I am. lol!

we want cup 05-05-2012 02:27 PM

Refs better have been celebrating Cinco de Mayo early, because there's no other excuse for that piss poor officiating.

I'm NOT saying the officiating is the sole reason we lost the game, and I am not one who usually complains about the refs or blames losses on them, but I have to say, that was complete and utter garbage. Garbage.

And my biggest issue comes down to the Hagelin call. Not only did a near identical play go uncalled when Boyle had his stick chopped barely a minute earlier, but it is CLEAR that the ref has NO intention of blowing that whistle until Gaborik looks like he might get an opportunity out of it/the fans react. Hey refs: you make the calls, not the fans. Hey refs: the call is made based upon the ACTION, not the RESULT. If Gaborik doesn't look like he might have an opportunity coming up and the fans don't raise their whiny voices, that call doesn't happen. And the outcome? It costs us the ****ing game. THAT is the definition of bad officiating. The refs put their power to call the game in the power of the uneducated mass of fans watching the game (I say uneducated, not as an insult to Washington fans, but because when you're in a building full of 18,000 fans, the MASS of them ARE uneducated regarding the rules). That call would have been let go if the refs had called it based upon the ACTION and not the RESULT. Which is not even to say that it wasn't necessarily a slash, but to say that, based on the rest of the game (including the non-call on Boyle 60 seconds before) that is a penalty is complete BS.

I honestly thought, despite that we didn't play an excellent game, that we would have had the momentum going into those final 5 minutes. That horrendous call is a complete game changer and it was the ONE and ONLY time this entire playoffs that I lost my cool and totally lost it while watching the game (I'm sorry TV remote; I promise I will rebuild you with superglue/replace you). I will watch all manner of hockey in the playoffs. I will live with borderline calls. I will watch dirty players go uncalled for penalties. I WILL NOT watch the refs decide the outcome of the game, and regardless of whether we DESERVED to win based on our performance through 55 minutes, we didn't deserve to LOSE based on that call. You just can't make that call with 5 minutes left in a tied playoff game. If we deserved to lose, than let us lose the WAY we deserved to, in OT, by being outplayed. Don't let a call like that (essentially made by the fans) determine the outcome of a game this important.

I rarely can say that I am LIVID after a game, but I am absolutely ****ing SEETHING right now.

Edit: This all without mentioning Knubles BLATANT delay of game and the many other "discrepancies" that went ignored in this game. At one point Emrick said, regarding a non-icing, something along the lines of "just one of many mysteries regarding todays calls". ****ing AMEN. It's a joke how inconsistent officiating is in this league, and I NEVER say things like that. In fact, I usually laugh when I see other posters going on about it, but today is just un-stomachable.

Moreover, the Caps play a little bit of a dirty style and we don't. I'm not claiming we're a 100% clean team; in the NHL there is no such thing. But we don't play with the edgy, dirty, chippy style that virtually all of our opponents do. And you know what? That's honorable and all, because those teams do whatever it takes to win and we play #therightway, but ****, I would love to see someone absolutely destroy Hendricks or Carlson if it would send a ****ing message. Ovechkin getting 2 doesn't bother me so much, but he would be sitting a game if his name wasn't Ovie. Today I am truly furious with the officiating in this league.

Edit: And YES!!! Del Zotto you sucked so bad I want to disown you right now. How many times do you need to have your shot blocked? 6? 7?

varanger94 05-05-2012 02:27 PM

You don't mind losing on an even playing field, but this is more blatant than the Winter Classic.

GWOW 05-05-2012 02:27 PM

Rookie mistakes my Hagelin and Kreider, 2 bad goals by Hank and clutch performances from the Caps three stars is why they lost today.

I keep telling myself that if they win the Cup, it will be games like today that will make it sweeter.

The Rangers love making us sweat it out.

NYR Sting 05-05-2012 02:27 PM

For the record, I think we got screwed. The Hagelin penalty, the no-call on the Callahan trip, and the no-call on the delay of game. I don't believe in NHL agendas, I just think the refs blow.

ImIdaho 05-05-2012 02:28 PM

Rangers need to better position themselves when they are near the crease.

And I think it's high time we start doing what the Caps have been doing since the Bruins series: Barrel-Rolls into Neckbeard!

poeman 05-05-2012 02:28 PM

**** this garbage...Can we just destroy the Capitals??

Come on

DMPD 05-05-2012 02:29 PM

Kreider showing he was a rookie.

Del Zotto was horrible. Stralman was pretty mediocre.

Officiating... joke.

All-in-all this was game two all over except the Rangers played worse.


I Eat Crow 05-05-2012 02:29 PM

Us against the world

TimeParadox* 05-05-2012 02:29 PM

can't find the Blues game. Heeeeeeelllppppppppp!

....k the Kentucky derby and NBC.

Rangers Fail 05-05-2012 02:29 PM

**** that bandwagon fanbase, and their idiotic Air Horn and their pathetic goal horn. Step on their throats in Game 5, and then finish them off on their own ice in front of their stupid fans.

Click 05-05-2012 02:29 PM

I called it after the end of 1st period:



The fix is on. NHL won't allow the Rangers to take 2 out of 2 games in Washington, and basically end the series with a 3-1 lead. Refs will get worse and worse as the game progresses.

Moosehead777 05-05-2012 02:29 PM

and whats funny is ..on the replay on nbc when knuble knocks puck over the glass you see the ref looking right at him...its classic cause the angle of the shot shows it clearly...wtf....hahahahaha

NHL stat page has him at 4 tonight, but there must have been at least 6.

He had a brutal game.

Bob Richards 05-05-2012 02:29 PM

When are we going to have our miracle plays? Those Chris Drury 7 seconds left, Ron Francis on Mike Richter goals? And to think that all these other fans have the audacity to call us the luckiest team in the league.

Placid 05-05-2012 02:30 PM

Not happy with the officials.. but not much we can do about that.. So.. now its best of 3. Still believe the Rangers will win this.
