Late on this, but holy hell that was satisfying to watch last night. 23 years and counting, you fuckheads.
 
 
Yes, and although it was far from a blowout, it wasn't a nailbiter either.  Thank you for that, TB Lightning.  As a show of my gratification, I won't speak badly of the Rays for the next 24 hours.

Yes, when the Rangers win it's going to be awesome. :)
Absolutely. I'm decided pro-Rangers, I really enjoy watching their team and there's really no unlikable players there anymore now that Dan Boyle is a corpse and can't be a shithead anymore. They are really what the Bruins should try to be. Fast, physical, defensive oriented with an elite goalie.

Hey now. Still early of course but that's a good first step toward a back-to-back elimination of two of the Axes of Evil.

Not New York's night...



...which too bad for them because after tonight there are no more nights.

How about the 13 of 17 face-offs he's won tonight
Backstrom isn't on every commercial break because he wins face-offs. The Rangers have been bad on face-offs all year too. The guy has been invisible this series. It would be nice to see that change.

I'm shocked that Orpik launched an elbow at someone's head. Shocked I tell you.

I love how they're analyzing whether he launched and not the fact that he elbowed him in the face.

I thought I saw that.  There was definite in, behind-the-knee, up motion.  There were multiple guys in the area though so I think its conceivable that he tripped over something
