Eh, no need to be that nervous. You guys have a good chance at the playoffs, regardless of this game. I hope you make it over the Devils.

i see your point, being that since teams will be playing eachother, we have a very good shot at the playoffs, as long as there are not a plethora of 3 point games....but it doesnt sit well with me that with a loss and a WPG win we are tied in points (we would still have a game in hand)....that is not enough breathing room for me..

IMO, the NJD are done.....there are 3 spots open for 4 teams (NYI NYR OTT WPG)

either way, the win in boston was huge for us last night....gave us a little room for error...

i just wish there was a way for NYI & NYR to meet in the postseason.....prob not this year, but i think we will both be in the postseason much more often in the near future

Ill all for change when its warranted and backed up by good points. Hell, Ive actually grown more sympathetic to the "anyone but this guy" posts.

But this revisionist stuff is really out there.

You're just putting words in my mouth. Consistently is a pretty important word which you conveniently threw in there to prove your own point. But I guess that any combination of Pyatt, Asham, Powe, and Boyle are a better option for the Rangers bottom 5 offense which has 2 players accounting for 26% of the team's scoring...

Fun fact: Crosby and Kunitz are both top 5 in the league in scoring and they account for less of a percentage of Pitt's offense than Nash and Stepan do for NY.

The Penguins also have a second generational talent on their team and a consistent first line player in Neal.

They have a couple of fighters, so do we. Then you always have some Isles and Rangers fans going at it. Saturday night + drinks = very emotional atmosphere

The Isles are due for a clunker. Look for total domination by the Rangers in this tilt.

They also have 51 points combined from Sutter, Kennedy, Bennett, Adams, Vitale, Jeffrey, and Glass. That's pretty much what comprised their bottom 6 throughout the year.

The Rangers have 23 combined points from Pyatt, Boyle, Miller, Kreider, Asham, Powe, Halpern, Newbury, Ferreiro.

I'm not gonna count newly acquired guys like Morrow or Brassard.

That's not fair though - Miller, Kreider, Powe and Asham have all missed a significant amount of games. To be fair you should add Halpern.

I'm not seeing a blowout. When's the last time we gave it to the Isles? They always come at us strong.

Im certainly not superstitious by nature, but i swear that every time someone mentions shutout in the GDT, Hank gets scored on a couple of minutes later. Seemingly happens every time

To be fair, I think Capuano would beat Torts in a fight

Guy looks like a hobo, he probably fights like a hobo (and them hobos know how to fight)
