Henrik Lundqvist once again dominates the shootout, grabbing his 4th win in as many tries
by stopping Travis Zajac of the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night.



...and tonight, Jed Ortmeyer
will be back on his home ice
for the first time this season.
Stand up and cheer!!

Wow, nice early GDT. Way to be on top of it!!!

The rangers should pull this one out and keep the streak going, which is what makes me a little nervous. i would like to see them dominate this hurt philly's team in similar fashion as we did with washington and jersey.

Come out storming boys!!!!

wonder if Malik is in the lineup? i think it couldnt be that bad a thing to have kaspar sit a game, though, not sure it should be for malik.

This game should be an intresting one, the Flyers have played well of late beating the Hurricanes,Lighting, and the Islanders all while having Esche back in net. But as of last game Foresberg was hurt so who knows what the team will look like with him out. I found this quote from the Flyers head coach intresting
Quote:
"The last time we lost Peter, we stepped off a cliff," Flyers coach John Stevens said.
(http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/preview;...gid=2007010413 ). So it will be intresting to see how the Rangers play these guys, if they come out like they have been these past two games I can see them comming away with the 2pts, but if they take them lightly this thing could go badly for them. I will predict a Ranger win tonight seeing that Foresberg is out and they will have a bunch of rookies in the line up, but it will be a hard fought game like always. LETS GO RANGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He is supposed to be in the line up according to the Post:

Marek Malik will return to the lineup tonight after missing seven games with a groin strain. . . .

Definate scratches for tonight:
Colton Orr (NHL Suspension)

Probable scratches for tonight:
Jarkko Immonen (Send him to Hartford!)
Thomas Pck or Darius Kasperaitis (Malik returns)

Hopefully I see my 3rd entertaining game of the year...and this is nothing like NJ. Been at the 2 best home games so hopefully this is 3. Henrik in net...I guess with no call ups...the forwards stay the same and Malik has to move in...ugh. Pock out I guess

Yeah Pock screwed up, but i think he should play

Dont know what youre watching. Pock hits the net on average better than almost every defender the Rangers have. and its a quick wrister instead of a blast that flys all the way back out to center ice.

I think Pock played a pretty good game with the exception of a the weak penalty and a couple of mishaps. Yes it was called, and it hurt the team at the time. BUT ....

I think Pock brings a new dimension to the table that helps the team MOVE.

He skates hard for the most part when he heads up ice, and on a few occasions led the rush with authority, and also crept in a few times (alot of the defensman are ive seen Roszival, Rachunek and Ward a few time in the last 5 games).

I think this pressure going forward from the back end really helps the offensive movement and timing of the forwards. When the Rangers are losing they are going offsides, not retrieving dump-ins and become out of sync with the passes, and a big part of that is the lack of the defense moving forward (Malik, Ward) into the neutral zone quickly enough.

Malik is slow of foot, but he makes up for it with good head man passes, which is one of the reasons Renney likes him so much. Pock can pass and skate which is a threat because it backs the defense of the other team in and gives guys like Jagr more room to manuever , specifically directly inside the blueline. How many times have you seen Jagr cut off by a defenseman (or backchecking forward) within the 10 feet "no mans land" around the blue line?

Having a d-man that can do that is valuable, but i think its more valuable to this particular team because of all the skill... especially that top line. I thought some of the best hockey the Rangers played in that game vs. the Devils was the top line with Pock involved in one of the d-pairs.

There are little things Pock does, angles he takes and arrives at - that i really took notice to. I think if Renney gives him more time he will be a benefit to the team.

im sure we covered this somewhere else, but i wasnt around yesterday - i went down to AC for a Poker tourney.

I don't believe it's as involved as the one he was wearing the last time we played you guys. Actually, I'm on a self imposed ban from watching, but last I saw he had on a half shield.

Here's hoping for a hard fought, injury-free game. Enjoy!!!

Looks for sure like Lundqvist tonight and maybe beyond.

Quote:
In fact, coach Tom Renney said he would ride Lundqvist for the next two games (against Philly and Montreal) --and possibly further because of the accomodating schedule.
Quote:
On the injury front, Fedor Tyutin (swollen ankle), Michael Rozsival (hip flexor/sore back) and Matt Cullen (rest) didn't practice, but should dress against the Flyers.
Quote:
Marek Malik, his groin strain healed, practiced and will play against the Flyers, Renney said. No word on who might sit. "It's not purgatory," he said, but indicated that Kasparaitis (14 straight) could use a breather and Pock might rotate in and out if everyone's healthy.

yes, he took a bad penalty that allowed the Devils to tie the game. But how many stupid penalites do the Rangers take. It's been a common theme, even with Malik.

And your saying he never hits the net. I hope you're being sarcastic.

Nonetheless, i will be there tonite. GO rangers!

Oh and not to be picky, awesome job on the GDT HockeyNYC. I'm all for you bringing 'em out if we keep winning . Rangers have 17 loses tho, not 7...although that would be something lol.

Pock has been playing well, he is a rookie... He covered for Rosival a number of times last game...

Yeah he took a stupid Penalty but everybody does... He is good on Penalty kill and can take it from coast to Coast
