sigh...well looks like it's going to be a game 7 at MSG

Yep. As soon as Ottawa got some momentum, the league called down a directive to start calling everything so the Rangers aren't knocked out. What a joke the officials have been in this game.

It's not so much the call, which was awful, but the situation. You have a tie game, and you're giving a team a 4 on 3 into a 5 on 3 with an offensive zone start. You're basically giving them a goal, it's a 2 minute shooting gallery in a long change period. Does that warrant giving them a goal? :lol:

Uh oh, frontier justice towards Neil?

We should have done some of that with Avery years ago, or that pos Rinaldo this year.

No way the league was going to allow the Rangers to lose this game. Not after their golden boys got knocked out yesterday.

And yet the Ranger fans think the league hates them, go figure :lol:

To be fair, Neil probably should have been suspended for taking out Boyle if they were going to suspend Hagelin (a first-time offender) for taking out Alfie, but hey Shanny must have missed the suspension target on his dartboard.

You people are really hilarious sometimes with what you think you see w/NYR...


That's because you underestimate them and the factors of luck and opportunity. I'm still sticking to my opinion that if the rangers win this series they go on to play for the cup. special teams and goaltending win playoff series. lundqvist is the best goaltender in the east. you really think Brodeur, holtby, bryz and the theodore are going to steal games on lundqvists level? come on....

ottawa may be territorial dominating the nyr and outplaying them 60/40 but they wont see that result of that on the losing end of the handshake line. the nyr could have won this series already as they really only sh!t the bed in one game.

watching the devils vs the panthers and you tell me the devils will last more then 4 vs them. you all better hope the capitals win.

hold the phone! 3-2

and there goes lundqvist after the ref like the crybaby he is. of course he won't get a penalty in the same way richter didn't get a penalty for his game 7 tirade in 94

Wow, kinda slippery move by Neil. I think that one's getting overturned.


it shouldn't. he waved at the puck with his stick but completely missed. lundqvist put it in himself!

Even though he wasn't looking at it, he reached back with his skate and kicked at it, just like Ron Artest's no-look elbow. Why was he reaching back with his skate there?

I guess he must have missed it with the kick...Sam and Micheletti go into shock :lol:

And so what? they win the cup? Their first since 94 - it would suck but would some of you slit your wrists?
I just don't get the preoccupation - it must be engrained since birth.

If the league has an "conspiracy line ups" - surely it must be for its 2 most failing franchise PHX vs. FLA

funny, you have no problem calling people out then and you respond with a condescending attitude. maybe all the way out there in la you wont feel the effects of it but you can bet if the nyr win the cup and with the uncertainty following the devils it'll do major damage. you think theres no one in the seats now? watch the nyr win the cup, parise leave and brodeur leave...oh and that pesky bankruptcy situation and ownership.

That's easy for you to say from 3,000 miles away from the closest Ranger fan/media. I hate it when the out of area fans chatise us for hating the Rangers so much. Come back to the area and your perspective on things may change.
