Devils at Rangers, Tuesday Feb 7

Once again, he might not have it every night, but Marty certainly has still got it. They rode him like a horse in the third period. The scary part for the rangers has to be that we beat them at their own game.

Devils would have won if the Devils didnt play Marty. Marty is mentally unable to play against Lundqvist.

i am not trying to be funny but am i the only one who thinks arguing with a rangers fan is a lost cause. when we didnt make the playoffs last year, all they did was rant and ridicule me. on the other hand, the rangers went on a 5 or 6 year stretch of not making the playoffs, but to them that was not considered to be bad :blink:

Just finished watching the game. Anyone else a little disappointed how the Devils won? Thought the Rangers got screwed. Would have liked them to have won with a clean finish. Oh well.

2 points.

Screw that, it was the right call. Volchenkov didn't get his hands on him until after Gaborik had plowed into Marty elbows high. You do wonder what's in the air when we're getting the benefit of the doubt on calls for once, I hope we're not getting set up for the kill later on :lol:

This game was a LONG time coming, considering his 6-20 record coming in. Finally a game where Marty didn't give up the killer soft goal against the Rangers.

"I tried to talk to [the referee], and he just looked away," Lundqvist said. "I'm on one foot, trying to get up, and I get pushed back in the net and I get a diving call. . . . It's embarrassing.

"They hit me probably three times before that, an elbow in the head, a couple times they ran me over, so I didn't understand that call at all, but it is what it is."

Oh boo fvcking hoo...you guys have been running Marty for five years.

I'm watching Rangers in 60 just for fun now and wow that goalie interference is completely blatant. Volchenkov is barely touching him. CORRECT call. Torts, Joe & Sam have to be kidding me. The entire organization is a diaper wearing baby. Waaaaaaah :evilcry:

Well the record indicates that but not tonight obviously. No softies, great saves, played excellent. Defense helped too.

Homers will be homers. I'm waiting to hear the arseholes on NHL Network said.

NHL tonight guy (forget who) said it was the right call, and that it's called 90 percent of the time.

He didn't get pushed at all. He was coming in at high speed with no intention of stopping, and Volchenkov was on his ass. If you watch the replay, there is no push.

Saw the replay in slow motion and Volchenkov definitely pushed Gaborik into Marty but did not drive him through Marty and I think thats what made the refs make their call. Good call.

I'm sure the Rangers will be giving back Game 2 in 2008 any time now.

He wasn't pushing him into Marty as much as he was trying to push him OFF of Marty after he made contact. Look at the overhead angle, the only part of Volchenkov's body that makes contact before Gaborik plows into Marty is the stick, and like someone said if anything the stick should have been obstructing him, not propelling him.

In addition, if that play happens in the 1st period, no one says boo. Sure looks like the right call. Maybe the Rangers should've thought about generating scoring chances on their power plays.

From the overhead angle it looks like Voch tried to hold Gaborik up and Gaborik just leaned into Marty with both arms to interfere.

I'm not saying I won't take it, and obviously everyone in the organization will. Just rather that Parise dumped the puck in and the game is over that way, and not win on a questionable call. Anyone can say it is the right call here, but they'd be lying if they weren't crying league conspiracy if it was the other way around.

Did torts forget to change his maxi pad again? That was a clear goaltender interference and the absolute right call.

That's ridiculous. Volchenkov is leaning into Gaborik all the way in and bumps him (the bump can be seen from the angle behind the forwards). Gaborik plows through Marty unnecessarily and that's why it's the right call.

Uh? You're on drugs.

If you think I'm ever going to be disappointed in a Devils win you're crazy, especially against the Rangers. The Devils could be as dirty as they want, the Rangers can get screwed (even though that didn't happen) as much as possible, and the Rangers can have whatever goalie they want in net..I'll never be disappointed in a Devils win vs. the Rags.

Again, no point in arguing the right call. Just take the win and move on. It's hard for any fan to be objective. It's a call every fan in the world agrees with if it goes for their team and one that every fan disagrees with if it goes against them.

And the neutral parties are saying was correct too.

I didn't necessarily agree with it at first, but I've seen the replay many times and I now think it was the right call.
