Capitals were great tonight IMO. Torts calling a horrible timeout and his press conference were both priceless.

As annoying as the press can be, Tortorella comes off like such a sore loser at times, and so frigging arrogant. Wow Torts, you won one damned Cup with a stacked team...I guess that makes you God's gift to coaching, and as such, no one is worthy of catching a glimpse into the mind of the hockey genius that is you. Is it too much to answer a friggin' question without being a complete dick about it once in a while?

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Wow, New York, again, in a game 7. You would of thought they had already won this series, beaten the Devils, and were gearing up to take on the western winner by the way Ranger fans are talking. The last couple of days a lot of them have been talking like the Capitals were already beaten. Typical of Ranger fans.

I couldn't tell if they stopped the presser because the media gave up or because someone else ordered it when he started to get really quarrelsome.

Well the headline itself is a question mark so it's not like a Dewey beats Truman moment, the only thing that's really bad about that is the inset, it should read 'Loss in Game 6 would send DC home for the summer'.

I think Rangers are done. Thinking about watching them last night, the post game interviews and quotes - I think this team is out of gas. I fully expect the Caps to win game 7, and I have a feeling it could be decisive.

As much as I've admired their grit all year it wouldn't shock me if you were correct and they got dominated in terms of play (though it would shock me if Lundqvist gave up a handful)...you can only go so long playing every game like it's Game 7. To a degree, the 2003 Devils did that but they also were loaded with vets who were used to playing a hundred games a year and had a couple of relatively easy series to start the playoffs. This is by far the longest most of those players on the Rangers have gone, other than Richards and Gaborik 'once', and they've played all these playoff games after going balls to the wall to overachieve and get the #1 seed.

Anything can happen in 1 game. It won't surprise me if the game is still up for grabs with 10 minutes to go.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Ludicrous. The team with a better 2nd period shot index from sticks with white tape will win.

Maybe the series against the Penguins drained you emotionally?

are you including blocked shots? I was thinking it will be the team that has the most tape-to-tape (color is immaterial here) passes while on a 5-on-3 advantage will take the game. Oh, and the team that misses the net with more shots will have a huge advantage.

Wow, New York, again, in a game 7. You would of thought they had already won this series, beaten the Devils, and were gearing up to take on the western winner by the way Ranger fans are talking.

Not this ranger fan. I am confident they will win, but certainly not looking past the caps. Not as if me looking past them will actually have any impact on the outcome.
