Rangers @ Canucks

This will be a special game since AV will be back in his old town, and we will play against Torts. I wonder how the crowd will react.

Will not be an easy win here like in Edmonton, expecting a tough battle.

But it's huge if the Rangers win, beating Torts, more or less eliminating the Canucks, and two more important points

It's a cool place to see a game. And Vancouver is such a beautiful city. If you ever have occasion to go, you absolutely should.

On one hand, the Canucks are in shambles.

On the other hand, they're gonna go hard against AV...

They've been fighting for their playoff lives for a while now. If they are motivated by wanting to stick it to AV....

We don't have Kreider this game though. I'll venture to bet Torts is a tad relieved there.

We should call up McIlrath to take care of Torts' boys, I don't like how soft the Rangers are.

I hope the Canucks try to goon it up, maybe they'll take like 10 consecutive minutes of penalties again.

The top 14 teams with the most major penalties.

1)Toronto
2)Philly
3)Vancouver
4)Boston
5)Montreal
6)Nashville
7)Ottawa
8)Washington
9)Columbus
10)Anaheim
11)Winnipeg
12)Calgary
13)Buffalo
14)Edmonton


9 out of the top 14 "tough" teams aren't playoff teams, in a league where over 1/2 the teams make the playoffs.

#tuffness


I'll take puck possession over toughness every day of the week.

If all goes to plan, by about 1am Wednesday morning, the Rangers magic number could be 3 points

Then it's just that whole pesky home ice thing we need to worry about.

Any indications if we're going to see Carcillo on the first line again? Good win in Edmonton, but I thought that was an extremely dumb move. What does Miller have to do to earn playing time? Seemed borderline offensive to me, "we'd rather have a fourth line grinder who we got for next to nothing play on the first line than take the risk of putting you, a forward we picked in the first round who has been dominating the AHL, in the lineup anywhere." Really?

I wasn't at the computer much at all yesterday. Did I miss something? Is Miller hurt?

He's a scratch, I'm almost positive, and I agree that it's a dumb move. Miller is a solid third liner I'd say, although I really would like to see him at center.

Miller was taken out of the lineup, and third period against the flames becuase what AV conisdered defensive and offensive issues.

So my bet is that he has no confidence in the kid at present

It is. Used to live on Long Island. Have been here since '91. Best city in Canada. Mild winters too.


Expect the Canucks to goon it up at some point. Tom Sestito (a legitimate heavyweight) leads the NHL in fighting majors. Only Dylan McIlrath would be able to go up against him. We could only put out Carcillo or Dorsett, both of whom would give up considerable height, weight and reach.

Absolutely. Give him some real time to shine or wither, and then act accordingly. This in between song and dance is idiotic. The kid's being treated like a far worse performer than he is.

AV really overreacted to a horrible defensive performance. Actually, he didn't overreact, it WAS horrible, but he seems to have placed all of the blame on Miller. The rest of the team stunk too.

Ugh. Yes, let's call up the defenseman who is severely not ready for the NHL and put him in when we're in the middle of trying to make the playoffs. Great idea!

Carl Hagelin is skating with Derek Stepan and Rick Nash. (Steve Zipay)

Dan Carcillo is with Brian Boyle and Derek Dorsett.* (Steve Zipay)

Holy ****, why AV? It didn't work last time! The 4th line has been our best line for a while now, why ruin it?
