Their coach (the guys who looks like the Penguin) blasted MSG and Ranger fans. BOOOOOOOOO. Game 4 should be loud. If the Rangers can take it, the Caps past may take over their mind state. Going to be tough but the best chance to win is to make it ugly and just steal goals. Hopefully, Gaborik can steal one.
Yeah a 1-8 in hockey is a lot different than basketball. Hockey isnt as star dominated as the NBA and the 8 seeds are usually young, scrappy teams who had to be hot at the end of the season to even get in the playoffs. The Rangers are not intimadated at all by the Caps. In fact, Im pretty sure theyre head hunting Capitals D-man Mike Green who recently had a head injury. Since the Knicks arent on tomorrow and David Price pitched last night, you should def check out the game on Versus tomorrow. The Garden should be pretty loud.
lol BRJ I didn't mean to delete that post, went to edit it and don't know what happens but this was my OP....
I'll be the first to admit... I'm not a big hockey fan in the same types of ways that I could really never get into soccer for some reason. Come world cup time? I'm pulling for our American team with Country love and pride like never before.
When the Rangers are in the playoffs, as a New York Knicks fans, how could I not pull for MSG's hockey team?
I haven't really followed the Rangers roster since the days of Messier, Leetch, Graves and Richter. I really enjoyed those Ranger teams. I guess as I've gotten older, I just moved away from hockey and put all my heart into the NFL, NBA and MLB over the years.
With this years Rangers team? I'll be the first one to admit, I know next to nothing about them but I do enjoy watching Dubinsky. He's always fun to watch, he's just an exciting talent for the Rangers. Sean Avery is another player I like. He plays with NY toughness and always seems to be getting into some ****. I like those types of hockey players.
I've been impressed with the Rangers. Some thought they had no chance but yet the series is 2-1 with the Rangers having a chance to tie the series up at 2-2 inside of MSG. All I know about hockey is this... The Rangers are the 8th seed, the Capitals are the 1 seed... The Rangers have a chance to shock the sports world with a series victory over Washington. Lost in overtime and lost by 1 goal the other game... Coming off a 1 goal win the other night... One thing is for sure; they haven't backed down as an 8th seed and thats something you have to respect.
And yeah, I'll DVR the Rays game tomorrow and catch the Rangers game live since the Knicks have an off night
