Never want to here a rags fan complain about a non call ever again. that was some fvcking despicable officiating and led to a goal for the rags. absolutley ridiculous

 

It was terrible. There's no disputing that. That is officiating. You can watch 9 out of 10 games and they always miss stick infractions as opposed to hooking and holding even when there isn't. That said, they probably still would've found a way to win. The Coyotes are brutal. The penalty on Smith was a joke.

The A-Rod circus showed early. As usual, the Yankees are upset. They're such hypocrites. They need him and don't want to pay him $61 million just to walk away. As usual, the Alex comeback is weird and will always be because of how embarrassing he is. But it is what it is. It'll be interesting to follow.

The Caps win again. Ovechkin scores another. Up to 37. They have dominated the Pens taking the first 3 games. Holtby has allowed 1 goal. And the Pens lost their cool. An unpenalized Ovechkin slash on Letang resulted in the Pens losing discipline. Isles rebound with a win at Carolina. No surprise.

2011-12 wasn't a fluke because there is no such thing. Even if the Devils beat us, it was due to having a deeper roster. Lamoriello also made two good moves picking up Carter off waivers. He was huge in that series. And Bernier was another nice move. It was your fourth line along with Henrique and Brodeur that won that series. Give credit where it's due.

lol the Rangers are not lucky, when are people going to stop with this meme?  They went to the Finals last year, the Conference Finals three years ago and are a legit contender again this year.  

 

On this board, come on. Haha. In all seriousness, that game drove me nuts. I actually left for the gym after that awful Boyle turnover. I just couldn't take it. But I knew it wasn't over and they tied it by the time I got to the gym. Made for a fun recap.

 

Rangers win wild one over Islanders

 

7', I don't see how you can say they're old. St. Louis is a dinosaur. Outside of him, it's mostly a young nucleus featuring McDonagh, Staal, Stepan, Brassard, Nash, Kreider, Zuccarello, Hayes and Hagelin. Only two guys are old. St. Louis and Boyle. That said, they can't win unless Lundqvist comes back. Talbot is a fine backup but he's been victimized upstairs. One thing I admire is his resiliency. He made the biggest save of the game stoning Nielsen down 2-0. If he doesn't, the floodgates open. The Islanders are legit. But their inexperience along with Halak are question marks. They also aren't great defensively.

 

There's only one team I rank over the rest. Montreal. They're gonna be awfully tough if Price keeps this up.
