QUOTES TO NOTE:

I have been in games like that when things get crazy. It is not easy for Edmonton.
We responded back. We picked it up for our teammates. We rode the adrenaline.
- Martin Biron


It’s a great feeling to score, it takes some pressure off.
And it was a really good game for our line and now we have to build off this.
It was a great two points for the team.
- Alexander Frolov


Gabs was ready to play. Even in the first period, I didn’t give him much ice time, I saw him looking at me.
He wanted to get on the ice. He's dynamic, he's our game-breaker.
- John Tortorella

Heads up: The GDT is a work in progress.

Back at it again! Continue to grind and pick up points! LGR:yo:

Blueshirt Special 11-14-2010 08:32 PM

Time to get these guys!

Vitto79 11-14-2010 08:33 PM

King scheduled back?

BrianBoyle 11-14-2010 08:34 PM

No more Mellon! Thank GOD.

Pens are struggling this year. Their defense has been sub-par, and Fleury has been...Fleury. We can win this.

Another plus; Jordan Staal isn't playing, so we won't have to hear about how the Staals are playing each other.

OMFG is their winger depth sad.

SwedishBullet62 11-14-2010 08:34 PM

Loffens back:handclap:
Let's keep up the scoring and burry those birds!

BlueShirts88 11-14-2010 08:34 PM

Lets go Rangers!!!

I hope so. I like Biron and what he's done so far but can't see the game faring well with him in net on the second end of a back to back.

BlueShirts88 11-14-2010 08:36 PM

MSG said Lundqvist would be playing

Fitzy 11-14-2010 08:38 PM

So...

Pitt obviously has two very dangerous lines in Crosby and Malkin.

I propose splitting Staal and Girardi.

Staal-Sauer
MDZ-Girardi
Gilroy-Eminger

But its debatable. Maybe switch Sauer and Eminger if playing Crosby is too much pressure for a rookie.

Florida Ranger 11-14-2010 08:39 PM

Perfect time to play these guys. We go on fire the day before and the Pens aren't, well, the Pens. Hopefully Lundqvist's a 100%

New York RKY 11-14-2010 08:41 PM

It should be a good game.

Divison games are important, even this early in the year.

Would be nice to get another win and go on a little winning streak. Winning this game could go a long way for this teams confidence.

I am looking forward to this one, and no more Igloo, so LGR!!! :handclap:

BlueshirtBlitz 11-14-2010 08:52 PM

If we win, I think we'll destroy MAF's confidence.

We have to abuse him- Crosby and Malkin make this team dangerous, but I think we can pick on Fleury's weakness so far to pull out a W.

NYRangers16 11-14-2010 08:59 PM

Fluery's had 2 good starts in a row...but I still think we can win. LGR!

ecemleafs 11-14-2010 09:07 PM

hopefully flower starts

poeman 11-14-2010 09:16 PM

great win today...Hopefully we dont let down and completely look like we folded out of the gate tomorrow.

Blatant 11-14-2010 09:22 PM

Lets go Rangers!!
Unfortunately I wont be home until the 2nd period because of lacrosse.. but lets see frolov keep going, and gabs too!

I just hope now that gabby is back dubi, cally, and AA back off a bit. We really need them to keep playing the way they have been. We all know how lethal a 2nd line that can score can be.

Wraparounds 11-14-2010 09:25 PM

The Penguin's depth really sucks. Another hard and physical game is in good order.

FromTheSide 11-14-2010 09:43 PM

So if we lose, do we blame LoFFeN? :sarcasm:

Puckface NYR* 11-14-2010 09:56 PM

matt cooke and arron asham on the second line? wtf

nyr2k2 11-14-2010 09:57 PM

LoFFen, your fourth line left wing will likely be suspended indefinitely. :sarcasm:

I kid, I kid. Let's move on from that and batter the Penguins. LGR.

Blue Line Monster 11-14-2010 09:59 PM

LGR! :yo::yo:

Just shut down Crosby and Malkin and this game's in the bag.

Seems easy enough. :sarcasm:

nyr2k2 11-14-2010 10:14 PM

Let's try to keep the Avery/main board stuff to the GDT/PGT from today's game, guys. Thanks. :)

I say so.

LoFFeN, fix your date, this isn't Europe.

Pugs35 11-14-2010 10:46 PM

I'll be there with my Tyutin jersey... haha
