Yep, also setting up a possible Winter Classic in NY in a few years as well. Two rivals, original six teams, boston and ny.........

B's fan here. See that I'm stepping into a minefield of sorts, but anyhow:

First of all, I hope McDonagh is ok. We can debate the hit and the degree of intent until we're blue in the face, but at the end of the day the most important thing is that a player's life and career not be damaged.

Second of all, I thought yesterday, up until that incident, was a fantastic game, tight and hard-fought. For a regular season game, it was downright epic. Lots to admire in the Rangers team.

I see that some of you are wanting to take the B's down a notch or two (or maybe more). That's fine. Truth is, they're vulnerable and flawed like every other team, so if you want to put them down, you have plenty of ammunition. Just realize that the two teams are quite similar in many ways, and that at a certain point, diminishing the quality of a rival you just barely beat ends up diminishing your own.

Here's to more great games, and to McD's health.

I think people are just tired of hearing Bruins, Bruins, Bruins all the time when there are plenty of other good teams in the league, like the Rangers, Canucks, Blackhawks and Wings. I think some of it also has to do with the lack of respect the Rangers have been getting from the media despite that they have been 1st/2nd in the east for a while now. All the media continues to say is that they are playing above their heads and when they have to play a superpower like Boston they will come back down to earth.

Yup, I hear you, that's understandable.

I don't know what media you're seeing but most of the things I've seen have said the Rangers are legit. It's not stupid to say though "Let's see how you fare in the playoffs". They are unproven, it's a fact. People can be skeptical of the Ranger's success so far. If anything though most of the "playing above their heads" comments I've seen have been from other people on HF.

I don't understand all the seething hate for Boston, maybe it's because a lot of you guys are Yankee/Jet fans? I'm a Met/Giant fan so I don't really care about Boston teams. I think for the most part they play a respectable game and they're pretty much how I want the Rangers to be. Sure, they have players that have done stupid things but which team doesn't? Krejci and Bergeron are class act players. After McDonagh was hit Krejci went over to him to see if he was okay. It was just a very unfortunate and stupid play and I don't think Ference is a villian here.

It was a great game though and it's a shame that the biggest thing being talked about on HF is the hit on McDonagh. Hope the next game is injury free and just as exciting!

In comparison to the Bruins though? The fact that the media reported this as a statement game for the Rangers shows that they think the Rangers aren't for real. If the Rangers are for real they shouldn't need a statement game and if they had lost that game I am sure they would have dropped a bit in the rankings.

I heard that the Bruins announcer said that the Rangers did an intentional offside at the end of the game. Agree or disagree?

What do you mean by this? On the play that lead to the goal?

It was Del Zotto when he was trying to keep the puck in, and no, it wasn't intentional. Bruins announcers are such clowns.

I'll tell you this much. Boston media has tons of respect for the Rangers. Our NESN crew for example, gush about what worthy rivals the Rangers are, how you play the game the right way, and how it wouldn't be surprising at all to see you in the ECF. At the Bruins board, I think you'll see the same sentiment. We may be a little defensive around suspension-related stuff, but we recognize good hockey when we see it.

Well, the Bruins just came off a Stanley Cup win and were dominating teams, albeit not top teams (other than Philly ). This is also the first season that we've really been playing like a contender so it's not really surprising. We do what they did in the playoffs and we'll get it too.

great win by the rangers yesterday. it was such a great game to watch except for a few of the dirty plays by boston by the likes of marchand and ference. im now convinced marchand is a dirty player and reminds me of matt cooke, he also needs the cooke treatment receieved for his issues. boston came at as hard all game long, we stood in there and made our plays when we had too. its really evident we need another top 6 forward in here to help our pp. something has to be done. we may win a game like that but we wont win a 2nd or 3rd round vs the bostons,philly,pittsburgh's (if healthy). even though it was a game winner its bad that we were pretty much on the power play for all of overtime and almost came away short. but great win and great day, now heres to the giants winning the nfc championship today to cap off an amazing weekend for NYC. its great that these 2 teams share the same blue.

How about this media that ranks the Rangers down a spot to 4th even after that big win.
