OT: Rangers vs. Sabres

Great series. Every game has been hugely entertaining, and tonight's game five has been no exception.

The game was scorless until Straka scored at 16:43 into the 3rd. Then Drury ties the game in dramatic fashion at 19:52! Now they're heading into OT with the series 2-2.

God I miss playoff hockey!

What a game. In the last few minutes of the 3rd period, with the Rangers up 1-0, I was thinking about starting a post like this to ask what happened to the mighty Sabres and why the Rangers held a 3-2 series lead... then Chris "Clutch" Drury tied it with only 7 seconds remaining! Then, Afinogenov scored shortly into OT.

The Rangers were this close to having the chance to eliminate the Sabres in the next game, an elimination that would've been one of the most amazing upsets in recent memory. Now, though, the Sabres have the chance to wrap the series up, as it should be... but, boy, that was close. What a game.

I was a little dissapointed when Afinogenov scored that goal. I was hoping to see another OT marathon. Still a great game though.

I predict the Rangers will tie the series in NY and send it back to Buffalo for game 7.

Nylander DID score in that game 5. But Buffalo got a very marginal goalie interference call. Miller actually made the contact happen.

I think that the Rangers are done. I doubt that they'll have the concentration after this completely deflating experience. Then again, them winning wouldn't surprise me nearly as much as the thought of them almost winning tonight's game, so I'm used to being wrong about this series.

With such great goaltending in that game, I was very disappointed with that OT goal. I too was making a bag of popcorn anticipating a nice dual OT session.

LOL. Call it even for Briere's tying goal in game 4.

Okay. But what about the "kicking motion" goal that was disallowed?

Since you were so quick to point out the marginal goalie interference penalty, surely you remember the absurd "holding" call on Campbell that lead to Shanahan's PP winner in game 4.

I agree with you that it should be a goal, however I have seen other goals like this disallowed this season. So, even though I disagree with it, under the current NHL interpretation of the "distinct kicking motion" rule, it was not a goal.

  • Kicking motion = no goal. Even if that kicking motion is to attempt to stop your own fwd progress straight into the goalie.
  • Briere's "goal" = inconclusive. Was it over the line? Maybe. Probably. But there was no camera angle showing it over the line. No goal. Until the NHL implements sensors in the puck and inside the goal posts, we'll have to rely on the TO war room and their bank of video cameras. They're right about 99% of the time.
  • Last night's Nylander goal = NO GOAL. Miller was in the crease, gets knocked out of position by a Ranger who was not pushed into the crease while a shot passes him by. No goal.
Ranger fans are unbelieveable. The main boards are full of Ranger-avatar'd homers talking about what a playoff warriror Avery is and how they are getting jobbed in this series.

I think it's great for the NHL to have 2nd round playoff hockey in NYC. But the better team is ahead 3-2 and should close out next game. It has been a great series. A little on the slow side at times though. And it feels like Buffalo has a howitzer sitting on the table right beside them that they are reluctant to use... Respect to the Rangers for making it a series. But when did hockey fans become so myopic that the referees were to blame for nearly every single goal and loss? It's an epidemic this year...

Great third period. Buffalo goes on to win the game 5-4.

After what happened in the regular season, this upcoming series between Ottawa and Buffalo looks like it could be interesting.
