He interviewed Gaborik, and so far when people get interviewed by Al during the intermission, that player scores a goal.

Rangers still work too hard to score, they overpass constantly (yes, you, Johnny Malkin), could easily have scored 6 or 7 tonight. At least they were generating chances, would like to see some buried.

I thought Dubinsky and Hagelin were incredibly strong on the puck, wish they had a scoring touch.

I voted BR, Gaborik, McD.

Staal stilll looks like a shadow of last year - slow, can't handle the puck. Don't expect much this year. Bickel, though, has looked much better. Eminger needs to sit when MDZ returns.

Overall, with no Cally or MDZ, an encouraging game.
Yep. Should have been a regulation win. But maybe an emotional win like this is exactly what they need to start rolling again.

Hope so - even though it's the Isles, they always play like champs against us (I watched the Devils-Isles last night a bit, they certainly didn't have the jump they had today).

Haha awesome.

One thing that was a pretty ***** move I noticed was that Nabokov skated away right after getting involved in that scrum.

What jump did they have, they were outshot 2-1, we had A LOT of good opportunities (for example against the Bruins and Canucks we were outshot more than 2 to 1, but a lot of the opportunities were from the outside), and 2 out of their 3 goals were complete flukes. The Islanders played like world beaters plenty against us this season, but IMO not today.

They looked much faster today than yesterday, IMO they were outshot because Hagelin, Richards, Dubi, et al. kept them on their heels.

I think it has more to do with Scott being a terrible hockey player than it does the position he plays.

Rule 60.3:

Yep, the NHL rule system is flawless.

Wow. First time I've heard of that rule. I always thought that on a high stick-
No blood=2 minutes
Blood=4 minutes.
Didn't know that lying on the ice like a little ***** can get you a 4 min power play. That's a new one.

I'm surprised then that all of the penalties against Crosby aren't 4 minutes.

Scratching Scott was likely worth two pints tonight - MZA is far from the only reason, but the Rangers were 2 for 19 on the PP vs. Isles this season, 3-5 (I believe) tonight.

Was going to joke about him. Decided to hold off. Although I expect some nice dives from #87 if he plays on Thursday.

Went to the game tonight. Sat in section 315 and had a guy with a Penguins jersey two rows above me....wanted to deck him in the face But anyways, great character win tonight. Came back 3 times and then Gabby with the snipe in OT. Garden was rocking after that Hopefully this builds momentum.

Will Malkin accept possibly being #2 if Cindy Crosby plays? Sometimes those things happen - Crosby goes down, Malkin steps up. Of course, if they both play like stars, I think it will be difficult to stop them in the playoff - is Letang back yet?

Real happy to see MZA play well. Wanted him back up here awhile ago. Hope he continues to help the powerplay.

IMHO, Brian Boyle was the key to the PP working.

Only 10:40 TOI for Zuke. Deserves more after this game. Hope to see him more in 5 on 5. I thought he made a difference in PP and has a couple of outstanding passes very few on the team makes....

True, more so than MZA I believe.

But, for once the Rangers really didn't have an issue with wasting time setting up in the zone, and the passing was as crisp as we all would like to see.
