You CANNOT go with Vally...this game is too important for us...If Torts was going Valley in one of these games, he would of done it against BOS, not CAR.

Henke has to go tmrw...if he's really a top goalie in the league, he should play both back-to-back games, especially since the second is against a team right with us in the standings in a heated playoff race. This is where Henrik has to show that he can be a Brodeur or a Luongo or a Nabakov.

we're not fighting for a playoff spot with boston ......we are fighting carolina though....so even though every game is very important at this time....the canes game is bigger

I'd say there were more than some. That was the most opposing fans I've seen at the Garden this year. Obviously it wasn't like it was at the Coliseum on Thursday, but there was a large number throughout the arena. And it was certainly more Bruins fans than I've ever seen here - funny since this is the first season in a while that they've been really good

Nevertheless, it was great to see them get sent home with a loss.

Since we traded Malik and Bδckman MSG have been like a church on a saturday...

On Antropov, I am not dissapointed wtih his play, but he isn't creating much if any offense or room for himself. He isn't that type of player. If he gets a opening, he handles the puck really well in small areas, he can pass and rip it. He opens up ice for his linemates with his size. But we are short on guys who will create thoose openings. Gomez and Zherdev basically. Thats a fundamental flaw we have. Due to Torts involving the D's more, we get allot more chances from misstakes made defensivly by the other team, while also natrually giving up a few more chances -- like on Kobashews (sp) goal. But at this stage thats certainly worth dooing. But looking down the line what should happend to this team during the offeseason I think thats the worst flaw this team have.

Also, Derek Morris is good. He is a very solid D who just is talented. I've seen allot of PHX fans ***** about the return they got for him, and now I kind of get what they are talking about. Its always very hard for a new D to come to a new team., but Morris is getting the job done. I wouldn't mind seeing him with Marc Staal later in the season.

Are you European? Just in case, you can't comapare sports events in the U.S. to those in Europe. No matter if it's soccer, hockey or whatever, you have almost in every game a crowd or at least a group of people chanting, cheering, clapping and drumming all game long. You will never find anything like that in the U.S., it's just a different mentality.

The Bruins got lucky at the end, not us, dont get it twisted. We were the better team and we made our chances.
Goaltending makes the difference IN RESULT. That's all.
We got different result yesterday because of it, while showing the same effort and outplaying the opponent in many games we failed to win prior. Not an excuse, just an explanation and also warning to those over hyped.

Is it me or do Boston fans just never cease to whine. All of them complaining about Fernandez that they would have won if Thomas was there. Then they bring out the "we're in first and you are hardly in the playoffs." Accept it, you lost. Get over it.

I don't think it is a different mentality. It is different way of getting drank. In US people drink beer at the sport event. They have to buy that beer at MSG or wherever. Europeans drink hard liqueurs they carry in their pockets to the event. I think the economical hardship made MSG folks more sober and therefore quieter, since they can't afford as much boose at MSG for awhile.

But the crowd has to be on its toes ... one of those times, there may be a real assassin at the game.
That was hilarious

I think this is a basic flaw for the vast majority of the teams in the league. There aren't *that* many players in the league who actually create those openings, like you said. There are lots of good players, but not necessarily a lot of players who legitimately create lots of openings and chances for others. Most teams only have a few such players on their team (like the Rangers).

The real flaw is that the players the Rangers do have that you're talking about, they aren't top tier players.

not really. at least in germany soccer fans only drink beer to games. beer and soccer, that just belongs together here
and it's not like everybody doing these chants is drunk. it really is just a different "fan culture". in soccer every big club has organized supporters, a special part of the arena where those are seated, etc...

Ah, drink a few good beers with 9% ABV and you'll be ready to go . The fact is that a lot of people go to games without drinking at all (imagine that)!! Also people in NA are too uptight to just let go and have fun without liquor. It's a lose-lose situation. They won't do it unless everyone else is.

We truly need some people in MSG with Drums and stuff getting people to chant along. You always find that kind of stuff in Europe. I've never seen some dude in MSG with a drum getting people to chant.

That would be a malt liqueur. Good point, nevertheless

Chill...

You must not know much about beer my friend. Go find a good Belgian beer or a good American microbrew.


to name a few

Nope buddy ;-) OK, there are some people getting drunk in the stands, but that's a minority. It actually is a different mentality, they way people see sports and "their" club and I don't think you could adopt that to the U.S., so some guys with drums wouldn't change it. I think, you just have to be at some games in Europe to understand what's going on, just like you have to attend some NHL matches as a European to understand.

BTW, the game on NBC sucked, as usual.

-Didn't show Avery taking the ice when the team came out and the ovation he received.

-They cutaway just as Avery's name was being announced on his assist, which was another huge ovation. They came back from commercial just to show the end of the ovation and Avery putting his face in a towel, visibly emotional.

-Didn't show the 3 stars of the game, I'm guessing Avery was one of them.

I hate when games are not on MSG.
