This is like being pissed at your younger son for getting 98s instead of 99s.

I demand consecutive shutouts without sweat being broken.

Is that so much to ask?

not sure tbh... i liked jt on the wing more than center, but he certainly did fine as a center tonight... better than boyle has been. i feel like jt's puck carry is better along the boards though.

It's an issue really. He seems to have versatility. So long as Boyle stays I think JT on the wing is okay.

It's ruining this team.

Just like Nash. His OBP is a whopping 0 and he has yet to convert a single two point conversion.

I'm sure it's been said already but:

Nash, 7 goals, all in the 3rd period.
Clutch is so overrated!

He's probably our best PKer.

If we keep this up, do you think we can get that 1st seed?

As long as health is of no concern (see how Staal does), we should be just fine.

Long way to go but cant see it happening. Bruins have 7 points more than us and also a game in hand.

I think we can take the division and get a #2 seed. Early days yet.


1 point behind Devils with 2 games in hand. 4 points behind Leafs and Sens with 2 games in hand. Keep it going boys.

No. No we can't. Eminger played excellent before his injury last season and got lots of praise from Torts on 24/7.

Only Torts knows what happened and why Eminger never got the chance to prove himself again. Until now. I'm a firm believer in Eminger, he keeps things simple and knows how to play effective hockey. He knows what he can and can't do and doesn't try to be a hero.

pretty sure we were more than 7 points off of 1st last season (maybe 11) and caught up in less games than we have left... it's doable especially with nash's play and lundqvist's contining to improve, but we'll see..






i have a questionedit: i don't suggest that it should be a fine or something, just curious as to what would make it one-- pretty sure dubi had a similar incident last year in a scrum that was next to the bench)
when hartnell (?) got checked into the bench and haley put his hands over him, is that a fine/suspendable offense? is bickel's smear?? hartnell's full out punch? any of them capable of extra punishment, or is he fair game on our bench?

Awesome, we are now 10-0-0 when leading after 3 periods.

Hank is so great in those situations. He is tied best ever in this cathegory since his first game in teh NHL. Pretty amazing.

Has Emminger been hurt the last couple of years?

I just think he skates better now then he has before.

Gaby's been pushing, has no puck luck.

Nash is an absolute superstar. Stepan and Hagelin with great games.

Hope Staal is okay.

Captain Courageous shows the way, Nash 7 goals all in the 3rd period, nothing better than beating the Filyers, love the way Haley goaded Hartnell into 10 minute misconduct and Bickel nailed him in that ugly mug....

As for the game -

I thought the Rangers played a good game. 5 on 5 they were the better team and they got contributions from up and down the lineup.

- Gaborik looked better. He was on the puck and made a very good play on that 1st Cally goal.

- Callahan, you can't say enough about this guy. He wills himself into positives for the Rangers, every shift.

- Nash, long point streak forming. The pucks had to start going in with the quality chances hes had. Money.

- Stepan - Wow. Since we were blasting him early on hes taken off. Every game he seems to be getting better, and hes starting to show some wheels now. He stepped up big time last night in Richards absence. If he plays like this every night this team can do some damage.

- Miller - asserted himself very well and continues to improve. Got off a few good shots and is showing he belongs in the NHL. 19, geeze.

- Del Zotto had a rough one.

- Guys like Powe and Halpern add a nice injection of speed and energy to the lower lines. It keeps the pace moving and their forechecking along with Boyle and Pyatt was pretty decent last night. Dont underestimate what Powe and Halpern give this team, they are finding a niche on this squad and that's great news for the Rangers.

- The Rangers need to build on this even further. The next step - get a shut out for Hank. They still can tidy a lot up defensively and if they can really get that together theyll be very tough to beat.

Hopefully Staal is alright, yikes

This is what happens when your best players all show up to play. Nash and Cally's contributions are obvious, and Hank made all the big saves. That stop on Hartnell was huge.
