i really think if we win tonite this will be a short series. bruins are banged up and worn down, we can lay the hammer down early.

of course i fully expect us to come out flat and lose 3-1

We shouldn't try to out-Bruin the Bruins.

Whoa, not used to that kind of optimism on this board.

I like our chances as is, but if Nash can go Nash mode and Lundqvist can go Lundqvist mode, then I just feel better going into this than I did the Caps series.

HONOR.

TRADITION.

RESPECT.

This is what it means to be a NEW YORK RANGER.

All who wear this jersey take great responsibility and represent this city with tremendous pride.

We are a team of 1, we support one another, we work for a common goal.

We must be a team of ACTION, not reaction, be DECISIVE.

We need to DOMINATE with our SPEED, SKILL, and EXECUTION. BE EXPLOSIVE. We have to push the pace. Be RELENTLESS.

Tonight we play with EFFORT. Tonight we play with HEART. Tonight we play for NEW YORK.

THIS IS WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A RANGER!!!!!

I'm just happy to have a playoff series that isn't against the Caps

Having Clowe and Staal back would be huge right now. Unfortunately we don't know how long it will take for them to be back to 100%.

I can only think of one solution:

LGR!

I'll be continuing my tradition of not posting in GDT's when the game is on, we're 3-0 so far when I do that

Have to take advantage of that defense. No excuse to not increase our scoring with what they're icing.

I'm far more worried about Lucic's offensive abilities than his fighting/hitting/running Lundqvist.

Say Eminger and Moore are the defensemen on the ice. Lucic runs into Lundqvist. What would you have them do?

I would obviously have them look away and pretend nothing ever happened -- Sarcasm aside, you can't allow Lucic to establish himself in front of Lundqvist whether it's agressively or not. Granted this will become a problem when Boston begins to struggle against Lundqvist and the team.

Lundqvist is this teams MVP and you do everything and anything you can to enable his ability to stay in his zone.

They have a stick in their hands. Slashes across the wrists/back of the knees are sometimes more painful than a fist to the face. I know from experience. Spear him in the stomach.

You don't have to fight to get your message across.

SLAP FIGHT! Which scrub are you betting on scoring? I'll take Asham again he's my boy. Think Boyle could accomplish something, Massachusetts boy and all.

Spearing is a major penalty.

So the Bruins get at least a 3 minute PP every time they make contact with Lundqvist? Why would they ever stop?

Not expecting a win.

But I definitely think one is very possible.

I'm worried that there's not enough pressure on the team. Can we lie and tell them it's an elimination game?

This is the match up I wanted in the first round. I think we got this in 6. Watch out for Jagr he LIVES for this. No doubt he want's to leave his mark on this series.

This. I could see the NYR coming out flat, thinking with all of the injuries on the Boston D, that they can just show up and score. I hope Torts lights a fire under them before this game.

I think this is a huge game. If the Rangers can take advantage of the inexperience on the backside, the pressure is squarely on Boston. However, if Boston can get a win with half of their D missing, it will do a lot for their confidence.

Yeah right. Boyle will get punched and knocked down, then go run to the bench to text Prust that the Bruins are being mean to him.

Boyle's lunch money at the end of this series= -$25.75
