Ha ha, talk about the luck of the Irish. On St. Patrick's Day, a line consisting of guys with the last names Avery, Cullen and Callahan score 5 goals and 9 points!
Now it's party time.
And did anyone else hear the Garden crowd chant something when Malik went back to get the puck at one point in the game? I think it was toward the end of the 2nd period, and I thought I heard something like "Malik you suck!" I thought it was pretty funny if that's what they were saying.
Whats a bit funny is that Lundqvist are looking extremely hungry in the net, especially after we had blown it away.
Yes, he wants the SO. For a goalie its probably a good thing, but I've followed Lundqvist closely now since he where drafted, I've never seen anyone so concerned about his stats, its really obvious at times. He is from the video-game era!
I love him just as much though!
Actually, (surprise) I find that to be a good thing. He's a competitor and he's always finding a challenge in every situation.
With the goaltending we have now I wouldn't be surprised if we caught up to Tampa soon. Just need more offensive performances like tonight
I've been waiting for Tampa to drop, though they had a 6 game road trip with some tough opponents, but came away from that one 3-3. They now got Caps away and then got 7 of their next 9 away. They will be really hard to catch.
Yeah me too, for a goalie it don't matter much. At times if he lets in allot of goals on few shots, he seems to maybe have a hard time letting it go, and that might be a bit negative.
But when he is playing well, its great.
Though its kind of funny, when you see him get pumped when he smelled the SO in the 2nd.
Yeah, everyone's cheering on the team, except for Lundqvist, who's more focused than ever. "SO, SO, SO..."
By the way, I guess I have to totally neglect the team and drink my skull off my bones a little bit more often. I come home totally wasted and find this team has scored more goals in one game than it took them on average for 4 games in the last stretch.
Allow me to express a silent WTH?! First, I didn't dare to check the score because I thought they had fluked as usual in some awkward manner. Boy I'm glad I was wrong. Frigging 7-0?! It feels like twilight zone.
If Dunham is in the net for NYI for a few more games we will have a decent shot to get the 7th spot, Pittsburg are only 4 pts behind NJD, with the tiebreaker.
I would defenitly not mind playing Pittsburg in the PO's. Crosby is a monster, but they are really unexperienced and teams like that often struggles a few years in the PO's.
First things first there's alot of hockey to be played between now and gm 1. although I agree Pitt will be inexperienced in the P.O; I don't want anyhing to do w/ them if we're so fortunate to make it.
The New York Rangers keep their playoff hopes alive with a huge 7-0 win over the Boston Bruins on Saturday night.
The Rangers, who are without the likes of Brendan Shanahan, Marian Hossa, and Karel Rachunek, used some unlikely scorers in their win over Boston. Matt Cullen who has not registered a point in his last three games scored two power-play goals 32 seconds apart and added a helper in the victory. Cullen has been producing on and off throughout the season. Ryan Callahan also added some unexpected points with two goals of his own. These were his first points of his career.
I wish we had Marian Hossa.
The Boston Bruins can't seem to solve Henrik Lunqvist as the Rangers goalie stays hot.
After Saturday's win, Lundqvist now has a 6-0-0 career record against the Bruins and in his last nine games has a record of 5-1-3. He is continuing to play an integral part in the Rangers' playoff run as the team keeps moving up in the East. This was Lundqvist's fourth shutout of the year as he faced 30 Boston shots.
