this...production is tight, with the quick turnover and editing added to HBO's standard of production values fitting in the games closer to air night is tough

LOVED the first episode, and I'm not trying to nit pick, but I do have a few complaints:

1.) Thought they would've started with the first Rangers-Flyers game last month. They obviously had the cameras going for it as there were a ton of slow mo clips from that specific game. Was it just for the slow mo clips? Or will they maybe work a little out of order and show that game later in the series?

2.) Was a little disappointed that they only showed ONE Rangers victory, as opposed to 3 or 4 Flyers victories..not for nothing, but this team has played well all year, yet they show the Toronto and Tampa Bay losses, and only show the Buffalo win, even though the blow out against Florida was the very next night. So I wish it woulda been a lil more even in that regard.

3.) Also a little disappointed they didn't show the Broadway Hat for our one victory..yet played that really AWFUL Flyers victory song!! Is that SERIOUSLY their song for wins??

Other then those few things, it was an awesome first episode, and I can't wait for the next one!

1. Really HBO you show us scoring like two ****ing goals? No first Philly game and 2 of our 7 losses? Florida game better make next week but I doubt it.

2. Love Torts.

The preview for next week said it was on the western road trip.

I really don't care how we're portrayed, but they certainly weren't doing us any favors.

Oh, and props to HBO for showing the game against Pittsburgh and barely letting out a mention of Crosby. I rolled my eyes when they showed the Penguins walking into the stadium.

All Bryzgalov was trying to say was that we are this tiny speck in a universe so massive we can't even wrap our minds around how massive it is.

And since we are all here stuck together on this speck, we should be happy.

I agree.

But the way he explains it with his accent, is funny.

Good guy.

Yeah, I hope most people understood what he was getting at. He seems like a good, funny guy. What makes it so amusing though is how random a topic it is and how into it he is, right from when he starts off. He's so emphatic discussing it and it's so bizarre for a show about hockey.

I loved it, cant wait til next week.

And just me, or did it seem they painted it as we are struggling this year? Suprised, besides the intro-which was epic-, that they showed nothing of our game vs Flyers.

Thought they would make up for it with our game vs Buffalo, but didn't seem to happen. Wanted to see Hagelin get hyped.

Let me stop my whining, the show is/was amazing. Bryz is unintentionally hilarious.

Edit: Man I felt bad for Anisimov. We all knew when it happened, but he had zero intentions for how his celebration was percieved-miserable spelling?-. Good to see him apologize, and to later see Girardi poking fun at him at dinner.

Watch them ditch the Panthers game and go straight to the Dallas game, too.

Nah, I mean one of the things that they mention right in the beginning is that both teams are doing well. And in all fairness, we did lose two out of the three games they showed, and it's guaranteed that we'll see at least another loss on next weeks (Stars game).

i dont think they made it as big of a deal because it was only a two game skid. When the caps skid ended it was after 8 games.

Just from last year and from what I expect from HBO, I cant see that happening. But just hoping for them to show us some recognition on how well we have been playing this year.

I obviously always root for wins, but with these games against Blues and I believe Coyotes coming up, and then Devs and Isles, we must play well and win. I need to watch this show with wins.

if you notice, they showed a very few clips from that game towards the end. Richards getting stitched up, and quick shot of some play where you can make out the Panther's socks, so yeah I'm not expecting to see that. More upset that we wont see Step's amazing goal on HBO.

Dubinsky complaining about the whole thing was amazing also. I didn't know they were so in-your-face to the refs, I thought that type of stuff would give you unsportsmanlike.

Anisimov was hilarious though, seems like an extremely nerdy guy.

Agree, I guess I was just looking for something. But ever since Flyers game, I was expecting that game to get a big piece of this episode, and not just the intro.

Guess I'm in minority when it doesnt really bother me that they aren't showing our wins. I'm more interested in off the ice stuff. Locker room, training rooms, talking to coaches/players, things players get up outside of hockey (like Cally talking out his folks for a dinner haha, or the whole credit card dinner game).

They'll put more focus on the rangers/flyers matchup later on in the month instead.

I also hope they show Sauer soon. It's kind of concerning seeing Giroux go about his concussion protocol, but Sauer isn't mentioned.

What he said is absolutely correct and it's a fascinating subject matter but for me the hilarity was both his accent and the context of him bringing up such a subject matter on camera when giving an interview for a documentary about the two hockey teams.... Can't wait to see what he talks about next week.
