It's like a really bad M. Night Shyamalan movie.
Henrik would be good on the Penguins. I don't know why they irrationally rag on the guy. I think it's the boomerang effect for all the trash levied at Marty over the years. It's no longer a logic based discussion.

This is the ugly side of Brodeur which I simply can't stand. They've dropped a game to the Rangers. Henrik posted a clean sheet. And he has to try to be a complete ass to the press about it.

Just LOL at it. Fattie and Hank are ultra competitive have to be to be an all-world goalie.

Difference is Hank has class.

Fattie has no class.

BTW, should Avery get his skates out of Hudson?

I know it won't happen and I understand why it won't. But man it would be hilarious to see Marty and Kovalchump get irritated by Aves.

thats exactly what i thought when watching the play....kovalchuk in particular is noticeable because he probably could have stopped the play, or at the very least slow it down. flat out gave up.

Nice win Boys!!

But ya know we only won cause "da ice sucked". MSG must of made the ice blow "intentionally" cause the Rangers are scared of the Devs Skillz...

As far as fat boys comments. Could care less, but..... I guaren..fn..tee you that the inevitable slide out of the blue into a Ranger at the top of the crease from Marty is coming..

Goal will be disallowed or an interference penalty is coming... Book it.

And when he gets touched he is going to go down like hookah at a viagra convention.

Shot blocking is apparently not qn acceptable form of hockey . NJD should be concentrating on hitting NYR players in the head .
I really hope this is the strategy . Not shooting at nets and shooting at our players will result in a short series

Devils forecheck is ridiculous and very effective for them. It's a great style to play because it centers around a fast paced game and making to opposition commit turnovers...

Only thing is the Rangers are used to getting pinned in their own zone for large amounts of time so instead of taking a chance on getting the puck out, we settle in and block shots. This makes the Devils take some chances just to get a shot through and potentially turning over the puck themselves.

It's basically the waiting game, whoever is more patient will win this series.

Just read from a "NJD superfan " , apparently blocking shotsis not a smart part of Callahnans play . I guess he hasn't seen him play very much has he

The Rangers have played their two worst games in games 2s. Torts has to drill it into their heads about coming out strong in game 2. Carkner attacked Boyle and the Rangers looked lost on the 5 minute major. The Rangers went down 2-0 to the Caps on two stupid breakdowns. They battle back to tie up the game but take two stupid penalties. The Boyle offensive zone penalty and the Richards grabbing Carlson penalty.

If they want another long series,lose game 2.

Take care of business and win game 2. There is a two day break between game 2 and game 3. The Rangers will have the day off on Thursday. Return to the ice on Friday.

Win game 2.
Good post but I definitely agree with the bolded. Washington and Ottawa both tried to beat the Rangers at their own game. Didn't work. NJ is coming with something different. We'll see how it turns out. The Rangers have been playing the same way this season (with minor hiccups) for 97 games so far and they've won 60 of them. The system works and we knew all season long that it would adapt to playoff hockey. The Rangers have the ability to weather these barrages because they're willing to sacrifice themselves to block shots and anything else that gets through is stopped by Lundqvist 95% of the time. I agree that winning game 2 would be huge.

Torts: I wonder what would happen if we did that to their two whining stars over there; I wonder what would happen." = $20K fine

Marty: "Hopefully we'll be able to hurt a few guys getting one-timers in the foot or their head or something." = <crickets>

It is really a shame no one in the media is jumping on him for that clasless comment which would normally draw a fine.

Everything aside, you don't compliment the enemy during battle. After the series is over and the dust settles then you can exchange pleasantries.

A ways to go in this and a lot can happen. We really need a stronger effort in the next game. We need to win it as well. IMO the 1st period was kind of even--though New Jersey got the better chances. The 2nd period we had our spurts but New Jersey was really carrying the play. Rangers did their bend but not break routine but would definitely be better if we get a better start tomorrow.

The Devils need to realize that goals aren't going to come easy. They're not likely going to score a lot. Better defense--much better goaltender and more resilient team than what they've faced so far. The Rangers are a committed team. The Caps and Sens gave us all we could handle by playing a hard nosed not give an inch defensive style and backed that up with great goalie performances. Rangers have been through 2 wars to get to the ECF's.

Also to be fair, that DZ non-call was one of the worst of the playoffs. Would be completely homer to suggest otherwise.
Probably should have been a penalty. Would have been during regular season. But to call it one of the worst of the post season is definitely a stretch. Too many bad calls all over the place to pick out one bad call. The non hooking call on Callahan in the third period which actually stopped a scoring chance was a pretty bad non call.

Apparently we have to beat the Devils in such a manner that the mental midgets over there find acceptable. As if we were to beat them playing a different style, they wouldnt b**** and moan.

Can someone explain what the alternative to blocking shots is? Allowing a lot of shots on goal and allowing a lot of goals? Would that satisfy the masses?

Still can't get over that Kreider goal. I'm all for the blue collar work ethic/crashing the net, but boy was that a beauty. From the set up passes to the flash of the puck--it was just nice to see such a skill goal from such a young guy.

And don't even get me started on MacD, lol. Our future is looking so F*n bright and meanwhile we might steal a SC while rebuilding/growing greatly based on sheer willpower. I love it!

As someone who cheers for a lot NY teams (read: often times overpayed, underperforming divas), it's such a pleasure to cheer for these guys. The heart, the work ethic, the team work, the clutchness, the system. Very impressed.

Also, reminds me so much of the 07 Giants run. That team obviously wasn't known for flashy offense either, but won based on grit, great defense, teamwork, a few miracles etc.

Not a Rangers fan, but impressed with the turnaround in philosophy over the years. I wrote a blog post -- Not your older brother's New York Rangers -- about it.

Really intrigued about a potential LA-NYR finals. As bad as these playoffs have been with some of the bigger market teams getting knocked out, that finals has huge potential for the NHL, much more so than NJ-PHX. *shudders*
