Player of the Game & The Good, The Bad, The Redden: Game #80 vs. Boston Bruins
Player of the Game & The Good, The Bad, The Redden

The RulesWhat is the poll for?

You are voting for the player of the game - the one who put forth the most effort, who put the team on his shoulders, who contributed the most.

Do not vote for the player who had the best statistical game just because he had the best statistical game.

This does not mean you should not vote for the player of who had the best statistical game, but do not vote for him just because of that fact.

Who can I vote for?

You may vote for any player who dressed for the game and played at least one shift. If the player you want to vote for is not included in the poll, select "Other" and indicate in your post who you wish to vote for. In the case that I egregiously miss the player who everyone wants to vote for in the poll, I will count the votes in the thread.

What is this "The Good, The Bad, The Redden" nonsense?

It is my twist on the title of the famous spaghetti western movie, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

Since multiple players may have outstanding games and you can only vote for one player in the poll, this affords you the opportunity to recognize multiple players, or a facet of the team, for their commendable play ("The Good"). This also affords you the opportunity to rip players, or a facet of the team, for their particularly substandard play ("The Bad"). Finally, just as "The Player of the Game" affords you the opportunity to recognize the best, this affords you the opportunity to commend the crème de la crème of the worst, who delivered an atrocious performance, or whose singular (or multiple) bad plays directly led to the the detriment of the team ("The Redden").

Alexander Frolov Memorial Trophy

The Alexander Frolov Memorial Trophy is awarded to the player who most exemplifies the qualities that Alex brought to the ice game in and game out. Most notable was his talent for wraparounds. Thusly, this award is given to the player who has the most wraparound attempts throughout the game.

The award tonight goes to The Ghost of Alex Frolov, with 1 wraparound attempt against Boston.

Quotes to Note

This team has balls. It has had balls all year long. I'm not a big love-fest guy here, but I just like how we stuck to it. We showed balls.
- John Tortorella

We were sluggish early on and Boston won a lot of races to the puck. We had some struggles as far as their quickness, but there was no panic. For such a young group, to stay within themselves is a great lesson. It is obviously a huge two points. We still control our own destiny. We will enjoy, get ready tomorrow, and get ready for Atlanta.
- John Tortorella

This is not a one guy team, it’s a collective group. That’s the way we have to play. We’re not a terribly gifted hockey club.
- John Tortorella

We came from down three, and you make it 3-3, you feel like you’ve accomplished something. Again, we were driving. When you give up three, the momentum’s kind of against you. You’re vulnerable. That shift, we went out there, after we tied it, and lost a couple of draws, and didn’t do exactly what we wanted. Then we iced it, but we got a good forecheck, and it’s 4-3.
- Brian Boyle

It gives you goose bumps. It is a feeling you can’t describe. We fought so hard. We needed these points and that part of it makes it more emotional. We want to keep ourselves in the driver’s seat. That being said, we had a couple of minutes left in the game, so we had to settle the bench down and defend against one of the best teams in the league.
- Brandon Dubinsky on the Garden

As soon as we got the first one, it changes. On the ice, in the stands, they got going and we got going.
- Henrik Lundqvist on the Garden

They are there every night doing that. I think everyone is doing a great job paying the price. We are going to need it. We are going to need guys to sacrifice their bodies. That is the way we play…we play hard. When we do that we have a much better shot to win.
- Henrik Lundqvist on shot blocking

It’s up there, for a regular season game, it’s definitely up there. When you look at the importance of the game, and the way the game was played – they were all over us in the first, and then they got the third one, and we were so far away from a win. We just kept coming closer and closer, and then the atmosphere and everything. It’s definitely up there. A great feeling.
- Henrik Lundqvist on how this game ranks

Just an hour and a half ago, they booed us! It’s great that they cheer, but holy smokes, give us the help when we’re down, you know? Nothing against them! (Laughs) It’s easy to say right now, because there are times when they have the right to express their opinion, but we’re fighting for big points right now, and this is karma.
- Vaclav Prospal on the Garden

It seemed like as we kept crawling, little by little, they got more and more intense, and they started getting excited, and it just erupted. We fed off of that, and we got the win, and that was big for us.
- Michael Sauer on the Garden

Suck it thomas!

Barbara Underhill 04-04-2011 08:57 PM

Feels good especially since my uncle is a Brooooons fan.

DrAStuart 04-04-2011 08:57 PM

Great heart...great grit...well done....

The Redden: The "fans" on the GDT who gave up after the first period...oh ye of little faith

17futurecap 04-04-2011 08:57 PM

The Good: The unreal comeback
The Bad: Me never having confidence, props to the posters who never give up.
The Redden: Me saying this in the game thread. Next goal is the game, if they go down 3-0, can't see them getting 4 ugh.

bumrusherer 04-04-2011 08:57 PM

Best regular season win in years..absolutely amazing.

Janerixon 04-04-2011 08:57 PM

Best comeback win I have seen this decade.

All I can say is Prospal!!!! He carried this team and refused to quit, eventually others followed. The Bruins let this game get away, I still can't believe this is real!

Emptyvoid 04-04-2011 08:57 PM



Never give up.

This game ALONE is what the rangers are about.

Down 3-0? Back to the grind stone then. They grind, they work, they do not give the **** up.

Rangers, you ****ing earned this win.

And to all the haters, eat CROW!

Punxrocknyc19* 04-04-2011 08:57 PM

this is why id rather play boston over the caps or flyers

rangers can come back vs them.

Anderson 04-04-2011 08:57 PM

Redden : tim "stands on his head every game" thomas
