This game might probably be a do or die for not only the situation looking at the standings but also the dynamics of who we are playing...

Call your heart doctors during and after this one.

Lundqvist says he's under orders not to speak about injury....

Sounds so reassuring....

Dear Rangers. Please MAN UP and protect your King tonight!

By protect I mean

a. shield him from direct bodily harm

b. score some goals on the other team

Is Gillies in for the Islanders? I'm worried about what stupidity they might pull if the game gets ugly.

Look at the headlines on the right. Even ESPN New York thinks it's a Ranger home game

Move prospal down to the line of avery and either EC or Zucca and there you go. Prospal has been USELESS on the 1st line and cant keep up with the play anymore. Constantly late getting into the zone, never there on the forecheck and ALWAYS looks to pass bc he cant shoot.
I agree Prospal cant skate he isn't that effective even strength anymore. Wolski is an offensive player we need to score goals, I would give him a shot playing Stepan & Gaborik. Christensen was awful last night he should be sitting.

Seriously. This is the one team I'd want Boogaard to play, just to break Gillie's face if he thinks he's a tough guy.

I really really REALLY hope he's benched.

Wolski has been pretty invisible and his intensity level is not what it should be when his team is fighting for a playoff spot. I have no issues with him sitting.

The most disturbing thing is that he was a healthy scratch a few weeks ago and it didn't wake him up. It's easy to see why this is his 3rd team in the past year and a half.

agree give wolski some frekin ice time with gaborik. torts plays favorites with vinny prospal its just wrong. and wolski gets benched over christenson thats horible. wolski has played well defensively in the 5 min a game he gets which is what torts wants and gets benched WTF.

Not sure where the Prospal-hate is coming from...in terms of points/game he's tied for third on the team with Dubi with 0.71 ... yeah, he's not what he was...but he's not nearly the drag on the team people are making out to be ...

AHL transactions have Rangers recalling G Cam Talbot from Hartford.

Something to do with Hank's injury, maybe?

Thought Prospal was the best player behind Hank last night. He had his legs with him on the back check

Gillies didn't even score goals in entire seasons in the ECHL and barely recorded anything in the MetJHL.

It kills me that that pitiful excuse for a hockey player is somehow in the NHL. He is worse at the game itself than Boogaard is.

I believe he was talking about the great Russian Artist, Konopkin Vadim.
