4/29/71...remember it well. Sort of. I was a freshman at Syracuse and it was the night that Utica Club introduced Maximus Super (high alcohol content) Beer on campus. And I drank quite a bit of it.
The last thing I remeber is me hanging my head out of the 7th floor dorm window, blowing my gut and telling anyone within earshot I wasn't going to the bathroom because the Rangers game was in overtime. And I didn't.
If this game were taking place a year ago I have no doubt I would be in the same situation.
This might sound crazy but I'd send Bickel out to start OT 3. He's got energy on top of energy compared to everyone else on the ice.
In that LA Kings game way back in the day where they came back from 5-0 to beat the Oliers, the OT winner was scored by a guy who was riding the pine all night. Came off the bench and was the only one who had legs.
This game is crazy. Balanced play from both sides. For once, the refs are letting the players play the game and not being biased, making garbage call after garbage call. So many missed opportunities by both teams.
Cally is playing like a man possessed. Lundqvist is hanging in there with another strong game. Fedotenko and Gaborik are both playing very well... just doesn't have goals to show for it yet.
This is going to be huge for the team that wins the game. Big series momentum swing. Hope the Rangers pull this one out...
Yes, the Rangers have no offense.
Yes, agreed, a known fact.
Still, they are OUTplaying the Capitals. They did for the 2nd overtime, pretty much all the time.
They will score, win, and make it all worthwhile. Stop making it seem like Washington is better.
They are not better. They are actually reeling right now. Go back to fact one, which is that the Rangers cannot score.
Agreed, if I had no emotional investment, I would have turned off this game a period ago. This is "dead puck" era bad.
Btw, the Rangers and Caps are both trapping in case you were wondering. Both teams are waiting for that first mistake.
If you think this is boring than its pretty sad and pathetic. This is great hockey. Two teams who dont want to lose. Stall and Mcd playing like absolute warriors with Hank. You really see every little detail of a player in these game and builds teams. Go watch a shootout or Philly Pitt with no D.
