Well, I don't think it has worked. The guy is the best goalie that has ever played the game, and I'm a diehard Rangers fan. The other poster was correct, its as much about respect as it is mocking.

My heart would settle for a 6 game series, so we don't have to stress, but 7 will be fine I guess.

We were severely outplayed during the first 2 periods and I really thought we didn't have anything left in the tank after the 1st two series... I was wrong.

Hank kept us alive and we finally showed up during the 3rd. That was a dominant period of hockey from our club.

Only one game though but I definitely liked what I saw in the 3rd. Good start.

The way the Rangers dominated the 3rd period, you can see who wanted it more... that's what it comes down to when you play so many games... how much desire you still have after so many games.

I saw a very hungry Rangers team in the 3rd, like they were saving their legs for the race in the 3rd and came out of the gates flying... I think the puck was in the Devils zone at least 75% of the time that period.

Got my question answered by Pierre on ESPN...

Link: http://espn.go.com/sportsnation/chat/_/id/43830/nhl-with-pierre-lebrun

My question:

Stan (Brooklyn, NY)

I don't understand why you believe the Rangers will not beat the Devils. The match-ups are fairly close in every facet, but the fact that the Rangers have persevered while not playing their best hockey should give an indication to just how much heart this team has. Do you not buy heart/determination as a valid hockey reason for a team to progress forward?

Pierre LeBrun (2:22 PM)

If I picked the Rangers, Devils fans would be all over me as well.Folks, flip a coin in that series, both teams could easily win, both teams are evenly matched. I'm asked to make a pick, I made a pick. I don't care who wins, I'm not a ''fan."

That had to a been an amazing experience. If I didn't live near Seattle, WA and closer to NY I would go to watch the devils play at the rock. And the Yankees at their stadium. I bet the feel you got from the crowd was amazing! Out of all my favorite teams the seahawks are the only teams home stadium I have been to and when you got 60-80k cheering its so crazy.

Anyways good win for you guys. I hope my Devils can even this series up and go back to the Rock with home ice advantage.

Why are you so sure they will score a lot?

The Rangers gave up the 3rd fewest goals in the league. Stopped Ottawa, a high-scoring team, and Washington, who only had 6 fewer goals than your Devils.

Several of our D-Men are playing at the top of their game right now, and Henrik is continuing to be the dominant force he was all season.

Although its possible you guys could shut us out for 4 games in a row, i would say the chances of that would be as good as say.... The Seahawks winning the superbowl. So you see its just not that good.

We all know this will get tighter and tighter as the series goes on. Game 1 could have went either way with both goalies coming up big.. Big one tonight.. Parise, Ilva, Elias etc will get their points during the series, Richards, Gabby, Cally will get theirs as well.

Id like to hear the full audio on what was said. I dont think any athlete would publicly state that he hopes a player gets hurt playing the game. I did hear when the asked him about shot blocking he did say Im the last person to ask considering all the talk about the success we had with the trap. I would think his words were taken out of context considering when Flyer fans were booing Zidlicky getting injured in game 5 and the comments made from teammates and such after it, to go out after the next game and make comments saying to injure them.

“I think they’re a lot more in our shooting lanes for our (defensemen), so we’ve just got to find ways to try to expose them a little more. We’ve done it in the regular season. We’ve got to try to get it done. Right now, they’re hot. They’re blocking pucks. Hopefully we’ll be able to hurt a few guys hitting one-timers off their foot and their head or something. Right now, they’re paying the price to win and that’s what playoff hockey is all about.”

There you go.

Thumper 88
05-16-2012, 05:17 PM
Umm... I see his point, but I really don't think he wishes anyone any harm. It sounds like he's trying to scare them of the possibility of it happening. But yeah he shouldnt of said it like that. He should of said "when they block shot they could get really hurt" or something along those lines.

ShadyOne
05-16-2012, 05:44 PM
And if you guys do shut us out 4 in a row. Bet on the seahawks this year!! LOL

Wasn't even going to bother, but since you brought this up again...

You initially responded to a post talking about how the Devils may get frustrated if the Rangers continue to block a lot of shots, and then have to figure out a way to first get shots through, and then how to beat a hot Henrik, with "LOL, they will score goals". To which I talked about why it would be possible they wouldn't score a lot of them..

Never said they wouldn't score "A" goal. Noone would actually think a team would get shut out 4 games in a row. You responded, as if you were confident the Devils would figure it out, crack the D, and put a lot of pucks in the net. Teams didn't do it much on us during the regular season, and still aren't doing it now.

Would seem to me there is a reason the opposition continues to talk about how they need to figure out a way to get shots through, and how they are going to figure out a way to put pressure on Henrik.

I expect the series to be tight all-around, but if a team was going to have a big offensive showing, I'd think it would be us lighting up Marty, not the other way around. That isn't to say I guarantee the Rangers to win..(although I think they will :))

bsi
05-16-2012, 07:58 PM
Pumped...can't believe the devs are loading up the top line, I don't know why they'd do that especially with us having last change. All that's going to ensure is that McDonagh and Girardi are always on against both Parise and Kovalchuk. Maybe it'll work out for them but really it seems like something you'd do on home ice instead of away. I wouldn't be surprised to see Fedotenko Boyle and Anisimov against that tonight.

Not hanks fault tonight either. We couldn't get the puck out of our zone for minutes at a time. Eventually those shots from the point are gonna get deflected and find the net.

Tonights game was depressing. :cry:

It was a good game to watch. Devils came out strong in the 1st, you guys answered in the 2nd with 2 goals, devils tied it up before the 3rd. And devils came out strong in the 3rd got the lead, you guys had momentum with a pp. It was exciting

bsi
05-17-2012, 10:17 AM
Torts benched Gaborik because he didn't get the puck out on the second goal when he had the chance to. But in all fairness nobody on this team except for Kreider was getting the puck out, and sadly the newest guy on the team was the only one that could figure out that you could flip it over NJ's D. I personally think our D is physically tired, there's times when they just don't seem to have the power to shoot the puck out. Bickel is pretty much useless, I'd like to see Eminger back in the lineup as a guy who would be fresh and maybe take some minutes from our top 4. As well it would be nice if MZA and Dubinsky were back, some fresh legs would be a welcome addition to the forward lines too. This team is showing that it's played in two 7 game series, I don't know what the cure could be but some added players or using our bench more might be necessary.

J4KOP99
05-17-2012, 02:20 PM
On NJ's 2nd and 3rd goal, there was about 3 or 4 guys each time that could have cleared the puck out... How Gaborik gets blamed for all of that is beyond me.

Clearing the puck out has been a major concern for me since the Ottawa series. We have consistently given up these possessions to the opposition where they control the puck for minutes at a time. They are even-strength possessions but we still can't seem to stop them. Shot after shot after shot and we have to work twice as hard to block them or to get the puck out.

Whenever we have the puck in the offensive zone, it's usually one shot or one missed shot and then we lose possession. We rarely are able to put on consistent pressure like our opponents have been able to do in the first 3 rounds.

Well the flyers have no defense and they're goal tending is either incredible but more often than not horrendous. Secondly we just looked like we had no effort for a lot of that game at least it did from my seats although sometimes its tough to tell from in the arena as well as it is on tv.

That game was horrible to watch... I am sick and tired of watching the Rangers 'clear' it by pitching it back to the defense of the Devils so the Devils can regroup...

It was minutes at a time where I had to watch the Devils sit in our zone practically not bothered while our defense runs ragged around in circles... finally gets the puck only to give it to them before clearing it... it's so frustrating to watch...

Only thing positive was the PP looked better but that isn't saying much when your last 15 PP's went along the lines of, "get in zone, watch puck leave zone, get in zone, watch puck leave zone, final seconds of PP take a poor shot"...

Also, I said put Kreider on the PP and look at the dividends that paid off. We really really need to do a better job in the defensive end... that wasn't a game that they should've lost the way they did... it was a sloppy game by the Rangers, one of the worst I have seen in a while.

Yup...we looked really tired. Played about 10 minutes of that game. I love that Mcdonagh and Girardi are playing well but they're both gonna be out of the playoffs if they keep logging the ice time they have been all playoffs. I'm ok with Torts as a coach in general but I really didn't like seeing our 42 goal scorer sitting on the bench in a 3-2 game. When they showed Gaborik sitting on the bench he was visably frustrated. Our team lacks scoring at the best of time and to have him sitting there at that point in the game made no sense at all.

BTW Dubinsky skated yesterday, not a practice but he was on the ice, shooting the puck around, so he is getting closer. Not sure who gets pulled out for him when he finally does get back, which by the looks of things isn't really soon but I think Mitchell has played well enough to stay, Fedotenko is Tort's boy and Rupp has been good when he's been on the ice too. We could use his physicality and ability to get in on the forecheck though.

If Prust is out for the next game it's going to be Bickel at forward or him on D and Eminger up front. Either way they both won't get a tremendous amount of ice time. The only way I see one of them not going in is if Dubi is ready to go which isn't likely. And for those talking about Zuccarelo he's been wearing a non-contact jersey in practice so he's not ready unless all the beat writers are playing games.

NEW YORK -- Brandon Dubinsky, who hasn't played since Game 7 of the conference quarterfinals, was on the ice Sunday for the Rangers' optional practice at Madison Square Garden.

It's the second time Dubinsky has practiced since injuring his ankle and first time he wasn't wearing a non-contact jersey.

"It's nice to be back with the guys," said Dubinsky, who offered no timeline for his return. "It's nice to shoot some pucks on a goalie. It just feels good to be around and actually get a chance to jump on the ice."

If Rangers' forward Brandon Prust is suspended for his hit to the head of Anton Volchenkov in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Saturday, coach John Tortorella isn't sure what that will do to his lineup for Game 4 Monday night.

"I don't know what I'm going to do with the lineup," Tortorella said. "I don't think he should be suspended. So I really haven't gone that far, because I don't think he should be."

I really don't like Bickel in the forward position, I mean he's a defenseman and he rarely plays, so really is Torts gonna play him? All it's gonna do is playout out our 3 other lines. I realiIze that Deveaux made a bonehead play when he threw out that elbow but I think he'd be a better option, or even Newbury if Torts was worried about another bad penalty. I know the fans all love stu, but he's too slow for this series.

****ing pathetic. Hank can't bail us out every game... It is sad to see the lack of effort that we have shown tonight. You can't give away games like this in the playoffs.

Fedotenko will be in the top 6 because he scored a meaningless goal, next game.

Ya, that drives me banana's. With Dubi due back soon I was actually hoping, not realistically, that Feds would be the one sitting as I thought Mitchell has earned his keep on the 4th line with his faceoffs and forecheck but since Fedotenko and Torts are bum buddies he won't be sitting, especially with this goal.

Also, we didn't deserve to be in this game, much like we didn't deserve to be in most of these games, something has to change, we need to be more aggressive and stop dumping it around the boards, a cross corner dump works better or a soft dump on Brodeur. When we dump it in like that it's like giving NJ an extra player on the ice as brodeur is the best all time goalie puck handler. Also, while there were questionable calls and non calls, I noticed a few that weren't called on new york too, we can't blame the refs for the fact that we sat on our ***** for 2 periods. I hope Dubinsky is ready, if nothing else he's fresh and might add some legs.

We NEED Dubi back, as bad as that sounds based off this regular season. Kid is a key player for us.

We can't win Game 4s...everyone knows this. We will win Game 5 at home, lose Game 6 in Jersey, and will close out the Devils in Game 7 in heart-wrenching fashion...what else did you guys expect?

It's gone from a best of 7 to a best of 3, and I can honestly say that I'm pretty worried about the outcome of this series. With the exceptions of a few periods, we have been outplayed and outhustled by NJD for the majority of the time. The puck always seems to be in our end.

Don't know if that foolishness from Rupp at the end of last night's game will be a positive spark for us... starting to look more like desperation than anything else.

Hoping the MSG faithful can get these guys motivated tomorrow night for 60 minutes of hockey..... instead of 20!

Also hope Kovy takes a slapshot in the nuts for his spear to Cally

Let's go Rangers

I'm worried but we know this team will come out harder, like they did in game 1 of this series and 3rd period of game 3.

We will be stronger than ever with Prust and Dubinsky back!

This team was built around the work ethic of Cally and Dubi, they are the face of our identity. Having Dubi out of the lineup wasn't as noticeable until we lost Prust, we'll be a better team when the two of them are back.

And we will win with them back in the lineup for games 5 and 6.

DUBY wont be back for game 5, MZA probably not either.

DUby is a huge loss, physical presence with skill

Did you read a confirmation of this? All I've heard was that Dubi's status for game 5 is not known yet.

Dubinsky most certainly will be back, I guarantee it.
