Quitting on your team and being a fake fan are one and the same. And both deserve nothing but contempt.
You either have an extremely enlightened personality or you haven't been a rangers fan for that long.

You'll have to forgive my skepticism. One season cannot undo what nearly three decades of suck has does to my psyche. Keep in mind some of us are also Mets and Jets fans.

Having my mindset being blasted by angry rage and then galiant triumph in a matter of 5 minutes is doing a number. I can't see any sleep tonight.

No, I give Prospal the most credit. Too many times we see pucks pass through golden, ripe, crease territory and nobody with the smarts to get there and actually do the deed.

Prospal gets marks for understanding how goals are scored.

If we win, and Carolina loses against Detroit.

Also can i propose something to the mods. I saw on the bruins board they have stickied a thread for streams. I would love if we did something similar because literally 100 posts in our gdt were simply asking for streams and it was quite consistent throughout the game.

Then you should have more faith in the Rangers. After all, they have won more recently/consistently than the Mets.

agree the whole line played well. and I have been saying for a while wolski has been playing hard especially on defense. He does deserve more ice time give the guy some minutes and he will create chances he is the second most pure talent on the team and his play defensively is much improved.

overall good win rangers
at times i did see the boyle line get caught out of position but played well late.

Staal - Girardi
Eminger - Sauer
McDonagh - McCabe
I'm pretty sure Callahan was on with Dubi. I mean, he did make the sick feed for the tying goal. Cally was also out there with him when he blocked that big slapshot.

Still no word on Callahan's injury?

But, that's not carrying the team, IMO. Again, credit him for making a smart play, but, it wasn't a "Herculean, carry the team" effort.

Yeah, if Carolina loses in regulation tomorrow night then we just need a point on Thursday to clinch. If they lose in OT then we can clinch with a win.

Torts double-shifted Cally in place of Gaborik on that one.

Only couple? I dont smoke inside the house but if I did I would've had a packet. That was nerve wrecking.
