Just me ? Or was that a sick play by Chucky, on the back-pass,to keep
the play alive before he scored?

And there is no point in mothballing the tank. If we can beat the
Islanders on thurs, it's time to dismantle it and sell the parts for scrap!

He will gain mass in years to come. He will become much tougher to push around. He is not afraid to go in front of the net and in the corner. Thats what we call grit.

What would happen if Galchenyuk was a Francophone too?

Love how they (the Rangers) just started using the ''boring'' term all of a sudden. I can honestly feel the ******** in their words. Just take the L, sore losers and focus on YOUR play instead! You just got beat a team that was playing back-to-backs. The fact that they were playing ''boringly'' doesn't change the result and the standings, at the end of the day.

The ******** on the no icing before Patch's goal is hilarious.

What's the point of this post? He would then speak french. He'd still be just as valuable a member of this team as he is now. People need to stop trying to start language debate threads out of nothing.

or if he played in Toronto and was from Toronto
or playing with Vancouver and was actually from Vancouver
or drafted by New York and was actually from New York..

Err...perhaps not, but I don't mean it in a disrespectful way by any means. I'm just curious. The city and the entire fanbase is clearly, and rightly in love with this guy. How could you not be?

But...would the fanbase love him MORE if he was a Francophone?

That's all I meant.

Yeah I didn't mind cube, but I'm just surprised how much better he was than I expected

Even before his goal, I thought this was Diaz's best game this season. I'm glad he's still signed cheap next season.

That Tortorella comment... weird. That's really not how I saw that game.

I saw two top tier teams playing their ass off in the corners and in the neutral zone for every inch of ice, blocking a total of 35 shots on both teams, and with very minimal relapses in effort and in concentration - despite having one team completely gassed.

Tough, tough tight game. Goals (minus the empty netter) scored from right in front of the net. Goalies that gave nothing.

It looked disjointed, and it was almost more soccer than hockey, but damn me if it was a game of bad teams.

I find it interesting that Tortorella says two bad teams playing.. it was our 3rd game in 4 nights, 2nd of a B2B, on the road... I think we played a pretty good game considering the circumstances. The team definitely didn't have the same energy and it's to be expected.

Also, this is where having a fairly deep defense helps. I like all 6 of our D.

ArponBasu: Callahan on #Habs: "They're good in the neutral zone. They clog it up pretty well." #clog



About time one of the Rags has any class and humility. Callahan is one of the few players I like on that team for a reason.

Another strong game for Emelin. Glad he's doing better.

Desharnais has also been pretty good lately.

Cole has been really frustrating to watch. Terrible, lazy play on the Rangers' goal, then a very strong shift that leads to Pacioretty's goal.

So wasn't there a "bonus" from Prust for winning this game?

Bouillon is impressing me. I was a fan when he was here before.
But I didn't expect nearly this much from him now.

And he is not American !

PK is wearing a muzzle, a leash, and a bit and reins. He's been made to go against his instincts and natural talent. Sorry, don't like or at all.

MT will have to work like a dog to keep the team grounded and focused for that game.

The people here have been starving for an offensive superstar, in any language. Most of us feel this will be the guy. Dont matter what language he speaks. Plus this guy is very humble, just the way like their players here.
