  1. I have no idea how they called that no interference, but I'll take it
  2. I just noticed Kreider doesn't have a C or an A on his jersey. He's one of the longest tenured Rangers.... Who the hell are their captains and assistants? Jesus that franchise is a joke.
  3. Mother fvcking Rangers are going to advance to the second round. Shesterkin has looked like complete garbage and they don't deserve to be moving on, but if he happens to get right and starts stopping pucks the way he was in the regular season the Rags could go even further and it'll be insufferable.
  4. I don't see them coming back in the third. Cooper also looks like a corpse of a coach. No emotion or urgency after two games in a row blowing leads. I wanted him gone three years ago when they got swept in the first round by Columbus and he got a pass after two back to back Cups which is impressive, but they were shortened seasons and he's the beneficiary of stacked teams thanks to his GMs....if you ask me.
  5. I don't really see how it was Vasi's fault....really horrible defense on that last goal. Looked like the Devils there's they allowed a pass right in the slot.
  6. Pretty funny goal. I thought Guentzel should've scored on the first chance but then he banks it off Shesterkin. Igor looked helpless after it went in.
  7. Yep. It usually does after a big kill like that, especially at home, the crowd is loud and fired up. Pittsburgh didn't seem ready to capitalize on that gift. And they really have Shesterkin a confidence boost.
  8. Nope, what a horrible PP. They looked so disinterested. That is a mistake and probably will cost them. Easy opportunity to at least get one and set the tone early. Shame on a veteran team like the Pens for taking any team lightly, especially on the road.
  9. 24 seconds into the game in Pittsburgh already has a 5 on 3 for a full 2 minutes??? LOL
  10. They just showed Shesterkin in the locker room pre-game. He doesn't look like a guy who has much confidence at all. I love it. Tonight's game is in the Garden so he has that going for him, but I expect him to struggle again tonight. I think he's rattled and fighting it.
  11. I agree. I don't know anyone that is upset about getting first overall picks after finishing last....I just don't want to pick last for 10 years in a row. To me that's a horrible consolidation and doesn't make me feel good or better about that much suckage.
  12. She sounds bland and robotic to me. Her knowledge of the game itself sounds fair enough, but for whatever reason her presentation just seems canned and forced and I can't seem to get engaged by listening to her.
  13. Dude, yes they are. Sure, you can put the past in the past, but reputations matter. I don't want to be known as the team that got good after decades of sucking and eventually got great draft pick after great draft pick, which is exactly what they're known for right now. Edit:. To clarify, Oilers management obviously isn't upset about all the firsts they had, in part because management that's in place right now isn't the management that was in place prior (since they sucked so bad and they were given pink slips), But the fans certainly care and are upset. It's all about having pride in the team you care about and support no matter what.
  14. Yeah whoops, I meant by/with Tampa, obviously lol
  15. Insane game in Tampa. Vasi probably headed to the bench at the next offensive zone faceoff.
  16. I hear you, but that's not really what I'm talking about. I don't care what anyone else thinks of our team...I care what *I* think of our team. And what I think of our team the last 10 years isn't exactly great. It's not quite on the level of the Oilers lack of success for so long, but if we don't turn it around soon we'll be in that conversation. That's all I'm saying.
  17. Well yeah, I think those two things are totally different.... they've certainly turned it around, but how long did it take? 10 years? 15? 20? I lost count. They were miserable and terrible for a LONG time. I don't want to be in that situation just for a few years of playoffs....they really haven't proven much.
  18. I'm not upset with #2 at all, I love it. BUT, I am absolutely not at all happy, and I think you have to recognize, that we've been fairly fortunate with some draft pick slots over the last 5 years or so and we really need to do something with it to avoid being compared to the Oilers. It's a pride thing.
  19. Erica Wachter getting some time on the TBS broadcast during intermission - good for her, but I really hope we don't lose her to a national broadcast like we did with Doc.
  20. Yeah, and I acknowledged that by saying he had a great season I was referring to his previous numbers. I know mfitz said he put up 20 and 23 in shortened seasons which is nice, but just his body of work as a whole for his career I didn't think was all that impressive. This season was the only season he's ever cracked 30 goals. I don't know enough about him to make a true judgment or opinion, but I'd be interested to know what else he does - Is he physical? Does he kill penalties? His faceoff % looked terrible, so we know that's out.
  21. Fiala had a great season, but I'd be cautious on over-paying for him. He's been in the league a while now even though he's still young, and his numbers just don't jump out at me as eye-popping.
  22. Lightning with a huge rebound game against the Leafs. This series looks like it may go 7.
  23. Hallelujah. I kinda figured Ruff would get to stay - this was only his what, second year? This year coming up will be the tell-all, especially if he gets to pick his own assistants. Playoffs or bust next year. Anything less would be a failure and he will be (should be) the next one gone.
  24. That's incredible. How/why did the Blues player not go bezerk? Did he do something that he knew must have warranted that chop to the back of his ankles? Because if not, that's definitely one of the dirtier players to have gone done in the last decade or two - you could severely injure someone long-term with a cheap shot like that. I'm a little surprised, since it was called a goal on the ice, but I think it was the right call to overturn it. Kaako was crossing through the crease and bumping the goalie whether he was pushed into Doumilin or not.
