NEWS & NOTES





QUOTES TO NOTE

It felt like it was a world record for whistles and icings. That slow crawl. Sometimes, games like that, they’re just sitting on you.
There’s going to be turnovers. We created a lot but we also gave them some. But we did enough to win the game.
- Marc Staal


It was a tough game, there was a lot of whistles and it felt slow, there wasn’t much flow to it. I think when you are playing a road style that’s a good thing.
For us, we stuck with it and showed a lot of character and didn’t make too many mistakes.
- Rick Nash


It was a grind. It was a hard game to get momentum flow. That’s a lot of faceoffs. That’s a lot of time changing lines.
You’re not getting a whole lot of rhythm in the game so guys have to stay focused and I thought for the most part, we played pretty solid in the 1st and 3rd.
We were able to spend some quality time in their end.
- Alain Vigneault

Let's Go Rangers!!! Important game tonight.. should be alot of fun :)

Fitzy 01-12-2014 10:34 AM

This game has enormous playoff implications; the definition of a 4 pointer.

Giacomin 01-12-2014 10:44 AM

The Rangers got screwed by the refs in the 2-1 loss when they played the Flyers in the beginning of the season so it is time to get those 2 points back!

Blue Blooded 01-12-2014 10:54 AM

Flyers have the best PK in the league if you look at the underlying numbers, so we need to beat them 5v5. In fact they have the third best PK since the lockout!

silverfish 01-12-2014 10:54 AM

Another test for this squad. Flyers have been hot of late. Let's see if this team can keep it going at home.

Vitto79 01-12-2014 11:24 AM

Downie scratched so Roseville in? Think we see carcillo do first scrap

Massive playoff implications, both teams have been playing well, winner has a chance to take 2nd in the division.

Time for Cally's annual multi-goal game against Philly?

Predictionball: No production from that third line. It only works well on the PP.

All hopes lie with Nash

Blueshirt Special 01-12-2014 11:55 AM

Time for some selective urgency!

Glennsoe 01-12-2014 11:56 AM

Keep Simmonds away from the front of our goal and we have a chance..

A chance? We're not fielding a bunch of 1 legged invalids. They should have more than a chance. Should be an even game with a nasty bite. Wouldn't be surprised to see there be a few scraps tonight.

Carcillo is the only one that would fight so he will have at least 2.

Boyle? D. Moore? Cally? Possibly Kreider?

Has been a while but Girardi has dropped them when someone's agitated him enough. J Moore?

Could be a game where there is a lot of agitation.

aufheben 01-12-2014 12:34 PM

Wreck these jawns.

KingP 01-12-2014 12:35 PM

pumped up for this one

Krampus 01-12-2014 12:42 PM

Yeah, this could be a physical game.

Which also means that our special teams are gonna need to be good.

And Zucc needs to be on full agitator mode, because this Philly team has a bunch of guys he can easily goad into taking stupid penalties

When has Dom Moore ever fought. And no to Boyle fighting to kill the Rangers momentum.

Boyle can fight, but he has to take his skates off first.

Cally's playing too well to spend 5 min in the box. As usual, I expect he'll drop 'em if it comes to it, but I'd prefer to have him on the ice.

CK should be drawing penalties, not taking them. Once again, if he'll throw with Phaneuf, we know he's not exactly afraid of fighting.

J. Moore is someone I might expect to get his physical on tonight.

We don't need to send anyone out looking for fights. But we can't be afraid to find one.

FLNYR 01-12-2014 01:25 PM

Someone smash Simmond's face in please

PromNite 01-12-2014 01:39 PM

I wonder why the main board thread was locked. Too early maybe?

Anyway, LGR.

Callagraves 01-12-2014 01:43 PM

I know it could never, never happen, but I'd be really happy if we acquired Simmonds somehow. He's exactly what a team like this needs. Hard nosed 2 way forward with a knack for the net, in the vein of Dubinsky.

You can't succeed with just one of those on your team.

noupf 01-12-2014 01:43 PM

I've been very critical of this team all season......even after beating the hawks and going 7-3 in out last 10 games. This game, in my opinion is the ultimate measuring stick on whether the turn around will flourish or sink straight to the bottom of the sea. With Phillys great PK and our sub par 5 on 5 play......I don't have much faith in a victory tonight. If the turn around is real.....hank and company can beat philly. If either hank or the team is off by a step ( and there should be zero reason for them to be off even a slight bit tonight... ), this team will continue to hover around .500 all season long and continue to disappoint.

Fully agree. He would have been the shot of adrenaline that this team sorely needed. When philly was tanking early on, that would have been the time to try and pluck him away from philly. Once they started the up swing.......he became almost untouchable.
