I got my..

the Captain's Back t-shirt ready to go - of course, it's going to look funny in my suit, but who gives a hoot.

Here's my 2 cents:


This is the Rangers' first game against Edmonton this season. ... Henrik Lundqvist is to start in goal for the Rangers.

Jagr makes tonight an extra special night with a hatty after Messier passes on the "C" to #68; Gretzky's Yotes down the Sabres putting the Rangers back in 4th place in the East.

I personally hate these nights...

whether it's the Yankees, or the Rangers, it seems as though every time there's an extensive ceremony before a game, more times than not, they lose. It's like Yankees Old Timers games; they seem to always lose on that day. Gretzky retires, Jagr scores the game winner in OT. Richter, they lose, etc.

If this game doesn't go to an exciting shootout finish i'll be shocked.

The good news, hopefully, is that most of this roster has very little direct emotional tie to Messier and won't be processing real heavily on that level. The positive spin might be that, if they don't lose too much will and edge standing around waiting for the puck drop on a night where the hockey game is undeniably the #2 attraction, they'll be energized and uplifted by the intensity of the crowd reaction and, not unlike what happened when Keenan visualized for the '93-94 team what it can mean to win a championship, perhaps they'll have it brought home in a huge and even more direct way what it can mean to play like a champion in Manhattan.

What time does the ceremony begin and at what time do they drop the puck?

Based on Richter night I can only assume we wont see hockey until at least 745 if not 800pm...

Need to win this one. I hate it when they have a night for someone and they lose.
Mess brought us the cup--with the help of Leetch, Richter, Graves etal. The least we can do here is win the friggin' game.

That was an embarrassment, when we retired Richter's number. We went down 2-0, then took the 3-2 lead and blew it to lose in regulation 4-3. Oy vey.

I remember Dunham having one of his worst games, I think he only faced like 20 shots.

hopefully a big crowd that's loud and rowdy from the messier dealy will get the team pumped to go out there and take a quick lead and carry the play tonight

Thankfully Hank is in net.

I predict this will be a high scoring game though, 5-3 Win for Rangers.

i think the rangers showed against the flames that they can handle speed, as long as they don't have their heads up their arses. the oilers don't scare me a lot as a team unless you start letting them have their way...just play hard and don't be stupid and they can win it

This one's gonna be all kinds of fun....

BTW, NHL CENTER ICE is going to start airing MSG at 6 pm ET, and finish at about 10:30, through HNNY. So we will be able to watch the pregame show, and remember, NHL CENTER ICE has a FREE PREVIEW this week.

It's going to be quite the ceremony to watch, but there's still a hockey game to be played and we need 2 points tonight.

Here's hoping Sykora makes another impact and the Rangers win.
