LoLuongo gets pulled on his birthday.

Edit: Announcers were wrong, tomorrow is his birthday. Close enough.

I don't get what Milbury did wrong here. He said Crosby was playing like a punk and should be hit. Is hitting Crosby against the rules now? Should players pull up when they go to hit him, after he runs around playing like an ***hole?
He poked fun about his state of concussions. That crossed the line IMO. Remember this is the same idiot who went into the stands to beat up a fan with a shoe, let that sink in for a moment.

Yeah he's the perfect player for a 2nd-3rd line. Just competes and gives it his all every single shift. The man couldn't buy a goal here for the Rangers, which is unfortunate because I thought he could've been a core piece for the Rangers going forward.

Oh well, can't complain too much since we do have McDonagh.

When did he poke fun of concussions? When he said that he came back from his 35th? I don't really see that as very serious. It's hyperbole, nothing more than a rhetorical device to emphasize the fact that Crosby shouldn't be doing the kind of punk*** nonsense he's always involved himself in.

Agree to disagree, I suppose.

If Nucks lose in regulation, all we need is a win to clinch the Presidents Trophy.

If we didn't have a good chance of playing them I would be inclined to go over to the Sabres board and congratulate them on the victory they pulled out tonight. If they wind up making the playoffs that's a game everyone in Buffalo will remember.

GO DUCKS!!!

4-4 in Vancouver. Wow that goal song sucks. The 2010-11 Islander goal song is better than whatever the hell that was.

Exactly. I'm happy for Chris. Some crazy hockey Zeus god above was pulling the marionnette strings and toying with everybody.

"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference."

Chris just wasn't meant to turn on the red light with any regularity for NYR.

It's funny because when I was in Montreal a few years ago a lot of people were bashing Higgins. They said he was out of shape and didn't give his all.

He was a pretty good player for Montreal for a few years and sometimes it takes a few teams later for a guy to find his groove again. Good for him that he's found a home in Vancouver. He was tough to watch here, but whatever, he came with McD and brought the Rangers Prust. That's a double win.

It seems like Higgins only does decent on a Canadian team.

Why are you giving the Canucks this many chances? They score like a billionaire in a *****house.

Higgins looked as bad offensively as I've seen any player look for us. Now 'Nucks fans say that he MAKES their second line. WTF?

It looks pretty clear here that Vancouver is a lot better than Anaheim.

Anaheim is a team getting older. Missed their big chance, wonder how things go for them going forward. I bet they trade some pieces.
I have no idea what their farm or picks look like, my remark is off the cuff looking at their present roster.

Go Ducks!! Calling Selanne.

Hiller just keeps letting that far-side wide open. What a terrible showing in the SO by Hiller.

I don't think that the President's Trophy is in the cards. Anaheim was one team that I thought could upset them. They were up 4-2 and choked away the lead. ****ing shootout. I hate it with the passion of a thousand burning suns. No way they lose either one of their last two. **** Anaheim!
