Well, whaddaya know. The B's are up 2-0, all hope is bleeding out of MSG and Hagelin tosses one towards net, Tukka falls on his tuchas the puck rolls in and the Rangers get a new set of legs. A PP goal (finally!!!) in the 3rd to tie it back up an OT win (finally!!!) and it ain't over yet. Renewed optimism!

Wings looking scary good right now.....

Coach Quennville for the Blackhawks is getting outcoached in their series. He panicked last night and changed up all the lines. The result .. Kane, Hossa, Toews and Sharp had a combined total of 4 shots on goal and they had two power plays with no shots on goal. They have had quite a few shots hit the crossbar in this series, no reason to panic. If they go down it should be with lines that got them this far.

Thanks to the miracle of Facebook an old friend I haven't seen in 18 years out of the blue offered me a free ticket to last night's game. It was my 4th time in 20 years of attending playoff games that I saw the Rangers win in OT and I have plenty of losses under my belt too. The feeling of sudden victory never grows old. The Rangers are still quite unlikely to win 3 in a row and even winning tomorrow will be difficult. But they showed me something last night and I am proud of my team. Incredible that the tying goal came on the power play late in the third. Bet the Bruins fans weren't expecting that.

I can promise you two things:

1. Rask will never, ever fall down like that again.
2. Chara will never, ever give up the puck behind his own net like that again.

No trying to take anything away from the Rangers, but without two plays the Bruins are home resting up for Pit/Ott winner and the Rangers are making tee times (okay, I guess I am trying to take something away from the Rangers ). Now time for the Bs to finish the job at home tomorrow.

I was thinking that no team can be held in check THAT long on the PP and so I was fully expecting a PPG from the Rangers every time the Bs got sent to the box.

And how about the slap shot of young Torey Krug, man o man has he got a cannon on the end of his stick!!

Thanks to the western semifinals each getting extended to 7 games, the Bs and Pens will have a week off between playoff games, assuming the rumored Saturday start is true. Some rest is good, but a week off is almost too much. I know both teams have to deal with it, but it still make me uneasy. The Pens offense if en fuego (an eye-popping ave of 4.2 goals per game in the playoffs) and I just don't like the idea of Rask having so much downtime before facing that onslaught.

At least there are a couple of game 7's this week to enjoy.

Yep, w/Mem Day wknd & NYR in the rear view mirror, we turn our attention to sum-sum-summertime & Pittsburg -- it's a good thing they play in an igloo down there, if the weather reports for later this week are true
good point, too much time off is counterproductive -- in meantime, will Wings lose grip on Bhawks -- btw no sign of James/CanadianMule lately & hoping all's good -- & the Shahks -- no-mattawott, if we beat Pitt it'll pale in comparison to the finals:

*eitha San Jose Joe & the Beach Sharks -- or the Wings --
I'd like to see the Wings get it done
but, if that same royalty box shown at top of page from start of abbreviated season, is so-populated Game 7 in Chi -- & their fans -- & the fact they Shouldn't lose since they had the best reg-season record...
overall gotta give it to the Hawks -- Wings w/the heart, Hawks w/the head

if its true, a week off is too much rest. eastern finals should start thursday at the latest hopefully. Hawks pulled it off last night----nice 3rd period comeback. Even though they beat my Rangers, I am pulling for Boston. Pens are a team that everyone hates starting with whining Sydney. With all the guys they bought and the way those drafts have shaped up over the years, how can anyone like this team. Its like rooting for the Colts in football. They get Peyton and when it all explodes on them and they get number one pick, Andrew Luck is sitting there. A no brainer. Wow Luck last year and a no name tackle this year. Some teams have all the luck!!!! GO BRUINS!!!!

Milan Lucic referred the Pens the Miami Heat of the NHL, which is probably a good analogy as well.

The Rolling Stones are in town and they're getting ready for the game tomorrow ...



The work crew at the United Center is busy this week ... Stones tonight, Hawks tomorrow, Stones Friday night, if the Hawks win they will have another home game before the next Stones concert on Monday.

Pens finally found a goalie that can stop some pucks in the post season. Without the switch to Vokoun they may not have gotten past the Islanders. Another Rangers fan here that'll be rooting hard for the B's. Hope they splatter some Penguins along the way. One in particular.

Great, thanks for posting that -- we saw it first here!
Yep a pretty big wknd it's going to be in Boston
I think we can take them -- as you said about the NYR series, expect a tight, low scoring series -- as always, goaltending will loom large -- I'd call Tuukka our MVP...

i didnt see tortorella canning coming. however i think rangers need some changes and torts was terrible to the media as well as some of his players. he never allowed kreider to develop and continued to stick with richards all year long including on the power play until it was too late. I dont think lundquest likes him and the rangers need to resign lundquest although i cannot see him ever wanting to leave NY as long as he plays in the NHL. It will be very interesting to see who they bring in. Mark Messier has been very absent from the organization-you never see him attend a game or hear about him. I just dont get it. I always thought he would be a part of Rangers management in some aspect.

Honestly, I would have been surprised if Tortorella hadn't been fired. I saw the wheels coming off of this bus early in the shortened season when Torts forced Marion Gaborik to play left wing. Really? This guy has been consistently filling the net with pucks for you on the right and you shift him to a position he's never played before? When Gaborik failed miserably Torts kept him there and seemed to take a sick sinister satisfaction in his failure.

His handling of Kreider? Nuff said about that.

Letting you're players get smacked around and ordering them to stand down? I can understand wanting to keep his players out of the penalty box but there comes a time when turning the other cheek becomes counter-productive....and embarrassing.

Never fixed the power play, and consistently stuck with a formula that wasn't working. From a guy who's a noted "power play specialist".

Instructing Rick Nash to be more defensive. WTF?

Curious to know if something went down between Torts and Dan Girardi. #5 crashed and burned in the Boston series.

Benching Richards in the Boston series had to be one of the toughest decisions Torts has ever had to make. They won a Cup together in TB and had a solid father/son relationship. The fact that 19 was benched falls squarely on his own shoulders. He failed to play and stay in game shape during the lockout and that ultimately was his downfall. I give Torts a lot of credit for making that hard decision, even if it came too late. Question is, what do the Rangers do with him now? Use an amnesty buyout or hope a full training camp and pre-season return him back to the player he was? My hope is that they keep him and he can return to form. My concern is, and we've seen this happen to many players when they hit their 30's, is that one day they hit the ice and their hands are gone, never to return to the high level of play that defined their career.

This team has way too much talent to have squeaked into a playoff position, struggle against an inferior Caps team and get embarrased by the Bruins. If not for Lundqvist, the Rangers never would have made the playoffs, never would have beaten the Caps, or made the Bruins series seem as close as it was, which it wasn't.

Rumor is the nail in the coffin was the fact that during game 5 against the B's, Torts "declined" an in game interview by Pierre McGuirre. Word is McGuirre was told to "fuk off". Honestly, I don't blame Torts one bit for that. I can't remember if it was game 2 or 3, but it was during one of these stupid in game interviews the distraction caused Torts to miss a line change assignment. Torts quickly turned away from the interview, but it was too late. The matchup was missed and the Bruins scored. Torts was incensed. Righly so.

Had to laugh out loud at Mike Milbury during the 1st intermission of Hawks/Wings tonight. Claimed Tortorella's ultimate downfall was the tone of his many "rants". Kind of like the pot calling the kettle black, eh Mike? A$$hole.

Turned on game 7 midway through the 3rd period...it is a good thing the Hawks got the OT win because Chicago may have burned if the Wings won after that atrocious call that disallowed the go ahead goal with time running out.

Rooting hard for an all O6 final.

Messier is a special assistant to Sather at this point. He has stated he has no interest in coaching and I take him at his word. My personal pick would be Islander assistant coach Doug Weight.
