I'm looking for big things from Prospal, Fedotenko, and Drury.

I think if you're in NC you're probably technically in Caps country. Do you get comcast sportsnet? If you do, then that's what the game will probably be on.

On this monumental occasion I search my memories for the appropriate words that would rise and meet the emotional event about to take place in our lives. I am secure enough in my masculinity to admit that when these words came to me, my eyes watered and it choked me up a bit…… I want to share them with all of you………..

My-my-my-my (U can't touch this) music hits me so hard
Makes me say,"oh my lord thank you for blessing me…..

Stop! Hammer time!

This of course was accompanied by my MC Hammer dance……

I think the Rangers have a better chance than many are giving them credit for. It is true that they score less goals than many teams, but the -way- they score the goals is important. In the playoffs hard work and tenacity often count for more than they did in the regular season, the "pretty" goals are harder to come by. So a team used to playing a blue-collar type of game combined with some skill may have a better chance, such as the Rangers.

The Capitals seem built more for the regular season than the playoffs. I wouldn't be too surprised if the Rangers took this series.

WhatIfSports.com predicts a seven-game playoff win for the Rangers followed by a seven-game loss.

The sports-prediction website says the eighth-seeded Rangers have a 60 percent chance to upset the top-seeded Capitals in the first round and forecasts a seven-game victory.

It has the Flyers defeating the Rangers in seven games in the second round, giving the Blueshirts a 19 percent chance at a second straight upset.

Nah, I have Time Warner Cable. It was nice to be able to watch the Canes vs Tampa the other day on FSN Carolina. I'm wondering if

a) the game will be on Versus for me

or

b) do I need to order "NHL centre ice race to the cup" package and if I do, will the Rangers game even be on there since it's technically a "national" broadcast on Versus?

7:30 tomorrow can't come fast enough. It's only been a season but it's been way too long without playoff hockey. Makes me think about how we all survived without it during the dark era.

I like how all the analysts are saying that we will lose because the Caps are a much more defensive team now. Um, that goes in our favor soooooo much!! The teams we can't match up against are the quick, highly offensive teams. We would lose to the Lightning or the Canadiens in the playoffs. If the Caps play like that we'll have trouble, but if they play a tight game then we're golden.

I love being the underdog. We're gonna win in 6 and all the analysts will be utterly shocked

Been waiting for this game for too long already. Last season's bad taste in my mouth is finally gone that we made it this season. Time for young players to make names for themselves and show that this is a team to look out for.

Can't wait to see Anisimov, McDonagh, Sauer, Stepan, and Prust play in games like this. I also want to see if someone like Wolski can step up and become a force we need to get far in the playoffs. Oh, and that Gaborik guy has to show up a little bit more. Hank needs to be Hank and we'll be up one game to none and panic will set in in the Nation's Capital.

The Rangers and Capitals faceoff in the first round for the second time in three years, we break down the lineup updates, statistics and past history.

As a Ranger fan, I hope I kept it straight down the middle. In any event thanks for reading.

Ah, right, forgot about the Canes. I was thinking about baseball with the Orioles and Nationals.

Wow playoff hockey...

The Rangers had some great success against this team in the regular season, and I think anyone counting us out in an easy series for the Caps has another thing coming.

If the Rangers play we all know how they can this is going to be a good long, fun run.

Let's grind them down for 60 minutes and steal a win here in game one on the road.

LETS GO RANGERS

I think if we can weather the storm in the first 5-10 mins we can settle in and win. If they get a goal or two they'll have all the momentum and we'll be in trouble.

Our lord Brian Boyle will lead the Rangers to victory by overpowering soft Caps defensemen.

Holtby has a promising future. But I guess Capitals will use Neuvirth against NYR. And Lunqvist is a better goalie. Thats why NYR will win.

I can't find the game on my FiOS guide. Anyone else having this issue? Knicks listed on MSG 1 amd 2. Tennis on MSG Plus 1 and 2.

Need to know exactly which channel to record as I'll be at work when the game starts.
