Well we took the Rags best punch and survived...sure some luck was involved but you know what...
the rags 3rd goal was luck
the fact that blatant high stick on callahan went uncalled was luck. That still has me angry, even after the win.
so whatever, that's the way the cookie crumbles. I know what went on, Torts drilled it in them "everybody is saying you're done, tired etc" so after the initial 3-0 shock they rags played with renewed fire and intensity
WE STILL WON
we broke there fvcking hearts. You can bank on it. The rags won't play at this level again, and neither will the Devs.
How can we tame the mighty Rangers "collapse in front of the sofa and pray for dear life" strategy?
The Devils looked like absolute sh!t outplaying and outhustling the Rags for 40+ minutes. Dominating along the boards, outmuscling the rags, and having crisper breakouts and carry ins into the offensive zone as the rags gasped for air as another devils forcheck intercepted a rags clear and re started the cycle.
clearly the Devils were intimitated by the "tradition" and the garden faithful who were so boisterously loud and threw the devils off their game, the tip tapping of the blackberrys rose to a defeaning roar by the 2nd period as the devils gazed at each other bewilderingly...legendary home grown rangers from years passed such as stephane quintal, valeri kamensky, and rem murray quietly rose a glass to the brilliant effort they saw on the ice today (drop to one knee, block shot, pray puck is cleared...missed block? maybe the guy behind me got it) the torch is passed and the rangers on ice mastery continues.
Should the Devils even show up for game 2?
game 1 flyers was "oh sh!t time"
I have never been so amused after a loss. This game was a joke through and through. I hope the Rag fans think this series is over I really do...
I don't agree with Sherry Ross all that often, but the canned fighting at beginning of the games is an absolute embarrassment. It's the last Devils/Rangers game of the season, and I don't think they'd pull this crap if they meet up in the playoffs. Still, this is one of those instances where fines are necessary.
oh please Daniel, the fans LOVE this. It's a part of the game. Don't like it...go watch golf or synchronized swimming
No, I hope people keep buying the fakes. The NHL made a super scumbag money grab with this whole RBK/Edge crap. They totally jacked up the price of jerseys...the price of authentics went way up, even the price of replicas went up but the quality of replicas have gone down. You used to be able to get pretty much exactly what the players wore on the ice for a decent price, sewn on name, logo etc. Now "replicas" have the name pressed on and that garish ugly RBK box logo on the lower right of the jersey...this was done by design "oh you want the real thing with the stitching and all...$275" well you used to get almost the real thing (just no fight strap) for like $60.
So keep it up, keep buying fakes. Great value, and they look very close to the real thing. Keep putting pressure on the league and they'll be forced to lower prices to compete. That's where these desperation tactics like the one's montreal is employing come from.
