Come on, dude is ripped. And the redder the cheeks, the better he plays. If I had to pick one animal that resembled Feds the most, it's...

Most NYR players claim Feds is the strongest guy on the team.

As far as the house dyanamic..for now, we're going to watch the series together in the same room. And yes, I do have the couch and pillows ready to go..but if we stick to these rules, we should get through this..hopefully!

Derek Stepan would almost be more fitting given the name, but Kenny would have to drop an F bomb in there in order to make it match up syllable wise:

STEPAN! STEPAN! STEPAN! DEREK ******* STEPAN!!

They're doing ticket giveaways by the Garden at 5pm if anyone's interested. Saw it on the Rangers FB page.

No; there wont be. I could explain exactly why that mathematically cant and wont happen this series, but I'm guessing it would be a waste of time.

I have a different take on it. As a slave to math, that means it's probably more likely that it can now be broken and some team will do it. You're not likely to flip a coin 100 times and get 100 heads.

It's probably just an outlier fluke anyway. There are tons of teams that have gone 7 games in R1 and 6 games in R2 or 6 games in R1 and 7 games in R2 that HAVE won the cup. Are we REALLY to believe that that one extra game is SO rough that it prevents you from winning a Championship? Highly doubtful. I really wouldn't worry about that were I a Rangers fan.

Teams that have an old martybrodeur in net never win anything, so pick which stat works for you. I'm looking at 1 for 39 and fatso goes down again.

They don't let pudgy heavily French-Canadien accented people over the GW. The toll is too much.

The Devils players are kinda taught to hate NYC. Lou doesn't allow them to live in the city. So Fatso's been under this regime for a LONG time.

...off topic-but Mothers Day has to be a very awkward holiday in Fatty's household.

Do you have a source on that? Not saying you're wrong, I've just never heard that before and would be interested. Wouldnt shock me entirely as all the Devils live relatively close to the arena, and its been like that as far as I can remember, but I've never heard of a "ban" so to speak.

So many people in the media choosing the Devils in 6. Man, I hope this ends up being a short series for the Rangers just to prove these "experts" wrong. It took Jersey 7 games and OT in Games 6 and 7 to avoid losing to ....the Florida Panthers. Then they beat a Flyers team that was emotionally drained after beating the NHL's pet team. The Rangers handled the Flyers all year long.

Don't forget that Games 3 and 4 of this series won't be your typical road games for the Rangers with its proximity to NYC. We will win this series, underdog or not.

I've seen it mentioned on your board before. But I can't find a link to it, but it's probably been mentioned on Devils beat writers' blogs and whatnot. Although its such a small piece of info that it probably doesn't circulate.

....Now go away. You smell.

I think you're misinterpreting regression to the mean. If you were to flip 100 heads, the next toss is still 50/50, tails is not more likely because its due.

The fact that its happened 38 times in a row, means that there's likely something more to it. How much of that is fatigue, I don't know. There are other factors. A stronger team is more likely to eliminate their first two opponents before the 7th game.

Of course its not impossible, but the amount games the Rangers have played is a hurdle.
