First let me say Happy Mothers Day for everyone.


Well I am glad the game is on at night, instead of in the afternoon. I am sure that would interfere with a lot of Mothers Day Plans.


Like I said, it ain't over till it's over and the Fat Lady sings, and NEVER, SAY NEVER. I know a lot including myself were looking for the Rangers to Blow the Caps away at MSG. But you know what Ranger Fans, we got them, right where we want them. The way we beat them, tying the game with only minutes left, and the Caps were sure they were going to be celebrating on MSG ice and then Kreider ruins their plans and their celebration and he put a scare in them and Holtby, then we go into OT, and the Caps again think they are going to celebrate on MSG ice, and Bingo the Rangers Capt. puts it right up their A$$.


And believe me, winning the way we did has demoralized them more then a 7 to 1 loss. With a Big Blow out they would just say, we had a bad game. But now the scare and the curse of the Rangers is in their heads and minds all day today and until Face off on Sunday. We got em where we want them Ranger Fans. Trust me. :headbang:


The pressure is all on the Caps and the Rangers will rise to the occasion. :hockey: See you back at MSG OV, All Series big mouth, all series. :headbang: :hockey:


LETS GO RANGERS! LETS F ING DO THIS

Chris Kreider scores twice as Rangers hold off Capitals, 4-3, to force Game 7

RANGERS 4, CAPITALS 3


WASHINGTON - It took until there were 101 seconds left in the Rangers' season on Friday for Chris Kreider to score the team's first goal of the game, a tying tally that forced overtime where the Rangers earned themselves at least one more game.


Kreider didn't wait nearly as long in Sunday's Game 6 to help stave off elimination yet again, scoring 40 seconds in and again on the power play with 0.3 seconds left in the first to jumpstart the Rangers in their 4-3 win at Verizon Center. The Rangers held off a third-period Capitals rally to tie the second-round series 3-3 and will play Game 7 on Wednesday at MSG, where they will attempt to replicate their comeback from down 3-1 against Pittsburgh in the same round last year.


The four goals were the most this postseason for the Rangers, who are 13-3 in elimination games since the start of the 2012 postseason. They're 1-17 all time in series once trailing 3-1, and NHL teams are 27-for-270 all-time in 3-1 comeback bids.

Kreider, who has five goals in the playoffs, sucked the life out of the building with his early goal. He raced into the neutral zone to pick up a loose puck at the red line and then fought off Matt Niskanen while protecting the puck with one arm. He skated his way into the slot, spun to get his back toward net, was able to get his left hand back on the stick and backhanded a shot by Braden Holtby (24 saves) stick-side for the early 1-0 lead.


With 3.4 seconds left in the first, Troy Brouwer took a penalty when he ripped Carl Hagelin's helmet off. Derek Stepan won an offensive-zone faceoff against Nicklas Backstrom and Derick Brassard's point shot appeared to take a deflection before Holtby made the save. The rebound hit off of Capitals defenseman John Carlson's right skate and went through Holtby's legs, and Kreider was in front of the crease to score on a wide-open net.

Henrik Lundqvist (42 saves) kept the Capitals off the board at 13:57 of the first, denying Jason Chimera near the left post with his right pad and sliding all the way across to stuff Brouwer with the right pad again. Brouwer then threw a backhand from behind the net toward the crease which Lundqvist caught with his stick hand to stop play.


The Capitals offered an immediate response, scoring just 28 seconds into the second period. Joel Ward's shot from above the right circle was deflected in the slot by Evgeny Kuznetsov's stick before Lundqvist made the save. He left a rebound just to his right where Chimera cleaned up for his third goal of the playoffs. Ward was pulled off the top line by Barry Trotz in the middle of the first after a hot Rangers start.


After Martin St. Louis missed the net on a Brassard feed, St. Louis passed from the right corner to Nash into the right circle. Nash hesitated on first touch and skated left to round Holtby and score. Boyle's point shot came after James Sheppard backhanded the puck out from behind the net.

Kuznetsov scored at 7:40 of the third to cut the lead to 4-2. Ward scored off a Chimera rebound where Brassard couldn't clear the puck, igniting the Verizon Center crowd into a deafening roar which lasted throughout a Washington barrage for the remainder of the game, including a late six-on-four after a Sheppard delay of game with 2:44 left and Holtby being pulled with 1:40 left.


The Rangers silenced them by holding on, and now they have Game 7 in their house.

Oh man, what a win! 40 seconds in Krieder quells the crowd. .3 left in the 1st he does it again. 4-1 in the 3rd and I'm starting to relax. Blink, uh oh, what the hell just transpired? 4-3 and 10 minutes left.


What happened next I don't think I've ever seen in a hockey game. The Caps went berserk and kept the play in the Ranger zone until the final buzzer. All the Rangers could do was get into a defensive position and keep them to the outside. Now it's a 6 on 4 because of another BS call that everyone saw but the refs. We can thank Henrik for keeping the puck out of the net. That dude stood on his freaking head like no goalie before him.


I don't care what Ovechkin says. The Rangers are going to bury the Caps at home Wednesday and move on. At least I hope so!

Derek Stepan scores game-winning overtime goal as Rangers win Game 7 over Capitals, 2-1

  • Rangers' Derek Stepan unloads this shot in overtime of Game 7 against the Capitals...



RANGERS 2, CAPITALS 1 (OT)


Overtime, Game 7, the Rangers needed someone to Step up to save their season, and Derek answered the call.


Derek Stepan scored a game-winner in overtime at Madison Square Garden Wednesday to lift the Rangers to a 2-1 in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against Washington.

Derek Stepan is the hero for the Rangers, scoring the game-winning goal. 



The Rangers made history by becoming the first team to win a series after trailing 3-1 in consecutive seasons. They came back from 3-1 from the first time in team history last year in the same round against the Penguins. The Rangers have played 14 straight one-goal playoff games. They advance to the Eastern Conference Final for the second straight season and will play Tampa Bay.


The Rangers are now 7-0 in Game 7s at the Garden and have won 10 straight elimination games at MSG.



Alex Ovechkin did his part to try to back up the Game 7 guarantee he made right after the Capitals lost Game 6 on Sunday in Washington, scoring the game's first goal in the middle of the first but he was answered by Kevin Hayes in the second to tie the game.


Ovechkin's goal came at 12:50 of the first after the Capitals won an offensive-zone faceoff win by NIcklas Backstrom. After receiving a pass from Ovechkin, Backstrom found Marcus Johansson at the left boards. McDonagh looked the wrong way for a split second thinking Ovechkin had sent the puck up the boards and lost Ovechkin as the Russian raced into the slot. Johansson's backhanded pass from the boards found Ovechkin, who couldn't be caught by McDonagh in time allowing Ovechkin to score his third goal of the series, all of which came at the Garden. Chris Kreider and Derek Stepan were out of position and allowed Ovechkin wide-open ice to skate through.

With the Rangers shorthanded following a Derick Brassard tripping penalty, Rick Nash, who scored his first meaningful goal of the playoffs in Game 6, was all alone on a breakaway and tried to beat Holtby with a backhanded shot five-hole, but Holtby got his stick down to stop the shot.


There was a big momentum shift in the second period, which the Rangers began with 1:26 of carried-over power play time, their second power play of the game. Nash had a great chance after getting by a man into the right circle but his shot was saved.

At 1:55 the Rangers picked up another man advantage when Dominic Moore was pulled down by Mike Green. Fifty-three seconds into the power play, Brassard's shot from the left point clanged off the left post.


Washington survived but Green was sent to the sin bin again at 4:34 after he cross-checked Dan Girardi into the boards.

Finally the Rangers capitalized on their fourth power play. McDonagh stopped a clearance attempt at the right boards and got the puck to J.T. Miller below the right circle. Miller sent a pristine pass across to Hayes not far from the left post. John Carlson was caught puck-watching which left Hayes free, and he had an open left half of the net to dispose a one-timer into to tie the game. It was Hayes' second goal of the playoffs, his first since scoring the overtime winner in Game 4 of the first round in Pittsburgh.


Hayes is the first Rangers rookie to score in a Game 7 since Muzz Patrick did it on April 2, 1939 against the Bruins.


At 3:56 of the third Brassard passed from the right boards to Nash right in front of net, and Nash's quick deflection went just wide of the left post. Twelve seconds later Lundqvist stopped Evgeny Kuzentsov's backhanded shot off a breakaway.


Dan Boyle went to the locker room with 10:27 left in the third after Brooks Orpik leveled Boyle's head with his right elbow. Boyle tried to get up twice but couldn't balance himself and the officials stopped play. No penalty was called. Boyle was smashed into the boards by Backstrom at the end of Game 1 which led to Joel Ward's winning goal with 1.3 seconds left. Boyle didn't miss any time but said the next day he had been temporarily "dazed and confused."

Stepan! Stepan! Stepan! Poetic that Matteau was in the stands. So was Messier, Anderson, Richter & Graves. That's PO hockey.


PO hockey takes on a new persona when compared to the regular season. It is absolutely brutal. Nobody lays down. Witness the rookie Hayes finding the twine and tying up the game after losing a tooth. Any other sport would have the player sidelined crying for his agent or Mommy. That's PO hockey.


All 7 games against the Caps were won or lost by 1 goal. The one game I actually started to relax and sit back on the couch was when NY was up 4-1. Next thing you know it's 4-3 and the most relentless, 10 minute onslaught that I've ever seen. That's PO hockey.


The key to winning is a red hot goalie. Enter Henrik Lundqvist. 1.60 GAA. & a .944 save percentage during 12 PO games. That's PO hockey.


Next on the agenda is Tampa Bzz Bzztt Bay. Time to ground the Lightning and short-circuit their chance to win the Conference. Time to move on to the Cup. What time is it kids? Or should I say Lauren and TonyG4. It's PO hockey time! (I can't believe that only 3 YES posters are in this thread during the PO's no less)

I just couldn't believe no penalty was called when Orpik smash Boyle in the head.  The official had to be crazy not to view it as penalty worthy!!!  Nothing can be better than game 7 PO hockey, it was exhilaration edge of your seat from beginning to end..  the first 5 mins of O/T was nail biting as Rangers couldn't clear the puck.  Lundqvist was the beast as he persistently guarded his turf.  


Pure joy for Rangers fans.....

Well My True Blue Brothers on the Ranger Forum. Here we go again. After a fantastic 7 game series against OV, and the Caps, it's bye bye All Series Baby OV, Take you crying towel and use it to dry your golf balls on the golf course. Sob Bye and remember there is only one Mark Messier in hockey and you ain't it OV.

So now we focus on Tampa and the ex Ranger players, I hope I can keep my winning streak going for at least the next 2 games on home ice.

There is one thing that has to happen in the series and Duguay said it all. And I couldn't agree with him more. Here is some of the quotes he made about playing Tampa.

“One thing needs to happen and happen early: They need to send a message to the former Rangers that they are not buddies and they’re going to be physical with them,” said Duguay, an analyst with MSG. “The Rangers have to look at them like they’re the enemy. They need to know that they are not going to feel comfortable.” 

And here is what Duguay said when it comes to Callahan, and no truer words have been spoken.

“He was within a certain comfort zone playing against buddies, but that can’t happen anymore,” Duguay said. “Early on, a few Rangers have to go after him hard and let everyone see that he’s no longer a New York Ranger. Someone has to put a glove in the face and let the whole building know how it’s going to be. “What I saw when he played against the Rangers, it can’t happen again. He can’t be allowed to create energy for the team. If I’m a coach, a big part of the conversation and preparation is they didn’t play him hard enough.”

Right on Duguay Applaude And IMO, that goes for all Ranger Fans, especially those who will be at the game. We don't need any video tributes to any of the ex Rangers on Tampa. They left, they are gone, and I could care less about anyone of them. Screw em all, they are not wearing a Ranger Jersey anymore, and that goes double for the ex Capt. Cally, who wound up taking less money to play for Tampa, then what Slats offered him. Mad

This is going to be a different series, Tampa plays a different system, and I think it will benefit our speed and puck control game. We need to be physical, play smart and stick to our game plan, which I am sure this coaching staff will have them ready. Kreider has to keep stepping it up with that Raging Bull type of hockey. Hayes has to play as big as he is, and I think this will be a big series for MSL, and Nash.

SO LETS GO RANGERS! LETS F ING DO THIS Head Bang Hockey Thumbs Up Applaude

Rangers drew first blood to win game 1 in the series against Bolts....


Dominic Moore’s late goal lifts Rangers to 2-1 win over Lightning in Game 1 of Eastern Conference final

Rangers center Dominic Moore's goal late in the third period gives the Blueshirts 2-1 win.



RANGERS 2, LIGHTNING 1


His penalty nearly cost them. His goal won them the game.


Fifty seconds after he emerged from the penalty box after he was called for tripping late in the third, Dominic Moore scored his first goal of the playoffs with 2:25 left in regulation to lift the Rangers to a 2-1 win over the Lightning in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference final Saturday afternoon at Madison Square Garden.


Seven of the Rangers’ nine wins this postseason have been 2-1 games.


They have played 15 consecutive one-goal games in the postseason.


Kevin Hayes took the puck around Ben Bishop’s net and passed along the goal line from the left, and the puck went off Moore’s right skate in front of the right post and in. Henrik Lundqvist made 23 saves while Bishop made 28.

Derek Stepan got the Rangers on the board first with a second period goal vs. the Lightning.



Alain Vigneault showed off new lines at the start of the game, moving rookie Hayes to top-line right wing alongside Derick Brassard and Rick Nash, with struggling veteran Martin St. Louis moved down to Hayes’


spot on the third line with Dominic Moore and Carl Hagelin.


Hayes, who scored the tying goal in Wednesday’s Game 7 win against Washington and scored the overtime winner in Game 4 of the first round against Pittsburgh, had an immediate impact in his new assignment. He took a drop pass from Nash and snapped a shot at Bishop 3:42 into the first period which was saved. At 17:03 of the first, Bishop’s intended pass for Jason Garrison was intercepted by Brassard. Hayes took a pass from the center and fired a shot off the right post.


Stepan had a breakaway at 7:52, sprung by a Dan Girardi pass from the defensive zone, but Bishop gloved Stepan’s slot shot.


St. Louis had a great chance to score his first goal of the playoffs against a Lightning team he helped win its only Stanley Cup with, but with Hagelin’s pass bouncing slightly he whiffed on his one-time attempt near the right post.

Henrik Lundqvist fights through traffic to notch the win in Game 1 of Eastern Conference final.



J.T. Miller was stopped on the doorstep by Bishop at 6:03 of the second, and 23 seconds later St. Louis had another quality chance but his slot shot went wide right.


Chris Kreider passed from the right circle across to Jesper Fast with about 1:30 left in the second, but the wide-open Fast whiffed on a one-time attempt.


The Rangers broke the goalless deadlock with 12.7 seconds left in the second when Stepan cleaned up yet another deflection, as he did to clinch the second round on Wednesday night. Kreider incidentally knocked Bishop’s stick away as he skated from behind the goal line into the slot. A Ryan McDonagh point shot hit Kreider, whose ensuing shot from the slot hit off Andrej Sustr’s skate and deflected right to Stepan, who beat Bishop to the goalie’s right, what would’ve been his stick side. The 6-foot-7 Bishop had been spectacular all game, and it took his stick getting taken away for him to relent.


After McDonagh took a high-sticking penalty at 5:44 of the third, Ondrej Palat scored 1:01 into the power play to tie the game. Crisp passing from Victor Hedman to Tyler Johnson and onto Palat set him up in the right circle and he beat Lundqvist over his glove for his fourth goal of the postseason. Palat’s shot was Tampa’s first on goal in the third period.
