S&D, the Rangers are up two in the first series. I bet you're geeked. Of course now is the time of year to brag about the Wings again. I bet you'll love reading about that for the next month! Up 2- on the Blue Jackets. Is it any wonder? A name like that? Those playoff newbs should be happy just to be there.

I am almost insulted but that, Baseball and American Football is bad. Hockey is purely a Canadian sport. One of the fastest growing in the world. TongueWink

Rangers will still take the series after playing flat for one game. Sharks are having a tough time getting by Anaheim. Vancouver made it into the next round. Wings are doing what we all expected them to do. Stanley's road leads to the Wizard of Oz. Angel

Tonight is a test for the Rangers. The Caps got a taste of blood, they are a offensive power house in my opinion, and their rookie goaltender can stand on his head! Rangers have no real offense. It's Lundqvist who keeps us in the game! He's been getting over 30 shots to him, our D while good isn't great. I look at our blueline and the defensive pairs just look lopsided, no real shut down pair. And Torts is probably right in doing that since I'd never trust lets say Redden and Mara. While good in certain ways, they would not be able to cover each other.
 
So we'll see what happens tonight. Staal seems to up his game against Ovechkin when he's on the ice, which is amazing for such a young defenseman and even if we lose the series, atleast we know we have a buildable future.

Rangers passed the test so far S&D. How they did so is hard to figure until you take one magnificent player into the equation; and not I'm not talking about Ovechkin. King Henrik is magnificent. He stood on his head, squared off and stopped practically every pot shot slapped his way. Impressive and fun to watch a goaltender playing like that. As for the rest of the Rangers, well, let's just say that they are winning and ahead in the series. Washington was all over them but the score doesn't reflect that.

Oi! Has anyone forgot bout the Flames and Blackhawks? 2-2; GO FLAMES GO! Calgary Flames FTW! idk bout the Flames series, it will be a tough one from now. I can cee a game 7. I am currently watching game 6 of the Rangers of Capitals. Ovechkin made a sexy goal, since he is the worlds best player. Iggy is also the top 5 in the world. Iggy will hopfully be team Canada's Captain in 2010 in Vancouver.

Looks like the Rangers have some hard work cut out for them tomorrow. I hope they win so that my Bruins have an easy team to roll over in the second round. :)

I am saddened by the loss of the Flames, I have no more need to watch the NHL, oh well. io can now watch the World Hockey tourney and watch Canada take the gold, even though I worry bout Russia and Sweden. Two great team out of NA.

Rangers-Caps tonight!
 
CG, tough going. You ran into a capable Chicago team.
 
What's with San Jose? Thornton played like he was on fire some of the time and, at other moments, like he was in need of a pillow and blanket.
 
Ducks - Wings. Scarey good.

It dropped my heart that. The loss is a terrible thing to bear, even the C of Red wasn't enough to blow the Windy City away.

Strange happenings. A night where the Rangers played a good game only to succumb to an aging vet. Note to Tortorella, when you need a goal in the series clincher how about firing more than one shot on net in the third! Also, it's called pulling the goalie for a reason. You're suppose to do just that. 

After turning the channel briefly to Sportscenter I was suprised to find out what lay in store when I turned back to the Devils-Hurricanes game. Unbelievable! Down with a couple minutes to go in game seven, Carolina pulls two goals out of their collective rears thus completing their little game of Rippley's believe it or not. Brodeur will have a long summer.
 
S&D and CG does this mean I'll be the only one left posting in this thread?

Nope, not yes, I am kinda excited now. Crosby Vs Ovechkin? That sounds very exciting. Big smile

lol I think I'll continue to follow hockey. But it was depressing seeing the season end for the Rangers.... Let's see what the offseason brings us down the road I guess. Hopefully get further next year.

It was a bit disappointing to see the Rangers go down especially after such a good effort in game 7. I think when it comes down to it though, King Henrik got knocked off his throne. I really think he could have played better. It should be very entertaining to watch Caps vs Pens though.

As far as the Flames and Chicago go, I was not surprised at all to see the Blackhawks win. Same goes for Sharks and Ducks. The Ducks team right now is a team built for the play offs and although the Sharks had a decent offense their defense was not all that impressive.

The biggest surprise for me was Carolina, especially since they were losing 3, 2 with two minutes left in the 3rd. I was prepared to see the Bruins playing against the Pens but was very pleasantly surprised to see Carolina send Jersey packing.

So far today the Redwings and the Ducks have a really good game going.  It's 3-3 in 3OT.  Great game, I'm glad my girlfriend got me into Hockey this year, because of her I support the Redwings.

Good to hear you're following the sport John. There IS NOT a better sport out there! And it sounds like you're girl is awesome(can't go wrong with Hockey fans!), don't let her go!
 
Some Rangers news, Naslund has hung up the skates. So we now have another 4mil in cap space to use. And with that it's without a doubt going to go to waste since Glen Sathers in charge. Can't wait to see what garbage we pick up...
 
The Pens-Caps game was pretty fun to watch. Ovechkin had a hat trick, and I believe Sidney too. It really is a battle between the two. I don't know which one to root for though, I don't like either one of them. Maybe Pens since I'm bitter...
