happy thanksgiving

The New York Rangers defeated the Florida Panthers last night with a 2-1 shootout victory. This is the Rangers first winning streak (2 games) since their seven game winning streak to start the season. Marian Gaborik continued his scoring touch with the lone goal for the Blueshirts. Former Rangers Dominic Moore scored a late goal for Florida to tie the game at one. P.A. Parenteau scored the only shootout goal, giving the Rangers the victory. This was Parenteau’s second shootout winner this season. His first came against the Ottawa Senators in the seventh round on November 14.

For Sale: 1 Bruins Season Ticket, Great Seats, Terrible Team and Management

Chuck Kobasew

What’s going on at the TD Garden? Well I know what’s not going on, winning. The B’s drop another one to soon-to-be homeless Phoenix after stomping Dallas 3-0. Where is the consistency? And then, they go and trade slumping Chuck Kobasew to Minnesota for “rights” to sign forward Alexander Fallstrom and forward Craig Weller, and the Wild’s 2011 second round draft pick. So let me get this sorted out, the B’s were going to deal Kobasew in the off season so they could sign Kessel, they don’t, instead the get draft picks, Kessel goes to Toronto and now we get rid of Kobasew for some potentially signed forwards and a draft pick. Chiarelli, how many picks do you want? You’re picking up draft picks like they are dot-com stock shares in the late 90’s.

Rangers win home opener

The New York Rangers won their home opener last night, defeating the Ottawa Senators 5-2 in front of a sellout crowd at Madison Square Garden. It was all New York early as the Rangers out shot the Sens in the first period and had several quality scoring chances. The Rangers scored the first goal of the game 3:20 into the second period and never looked back. Vaclav Prospal scored his first goal of the season and his first as a New York Ranger. The Blue Shirts continued to dominate play through the period scoring two more times to carry a 3-1 lead into the third period.

Play got a bit rough in the third with two decent scraps… Continue reading ‘Rangers win home opener’

Kessel Will Play Against Ottawa; Ference Out

Kessel In

A few notes from the Bruins Blog

  • Fernandez with the start
  • Kessel will play after a 2-week break with an undisclosed injury
  • No players from Providence have been called up for this game; although it means nothing to either team, it’s a good chance for the B’s to tune up their game
  • Ference left practice early today in order to get checked out at MGH, his injury is also disclosed, however Julien is hinting toward a longer than normal stay on the IR. Lets hope he can make it back for the playoffs.
  • Hysteria in Montreal, as Andrei Markov and Mathieu Schneider appear to be shelved for a while.
  • The New York Rangers take on the Montreal Canadiens in a fight for the 7th spot. New York is hoping to just make the playoffs considering the Florida Panthers (in Philly tonigth) are now tied in points (tie breaker goes to the Rangers) for the eight spot.

lopsided fight, or uneven fight?

Milan Lucic and Josef Melichar dropped the gloves at the 19:48 mark of the second period last night and the fight was quick and dominated by Lucic. My question is, was this a lopsided fight, or an uneven fight? I guess you could say both too.

My problem is with Milan Lucic and I believe this was an uneven fight. Continue reading ‘lopsided fight, or uneven fight?’


Florida’s Horton Legitimizes Fighting in the NHL

A quick note before I meet up with commissionerdangle for some lunch. This was a fight from last night, and the prime example why fighting is necessary in hockey. It holds people accountable for their actions. After Maxim Afinogenov scored an empty-netter to seal the 5-3 victory for Buffalo, Florida’s Horton cheap shots Afinogenov. It’s to bad Ballard had to stick up for Horton and fight tough guy Rivet, but it happens. It goes to show that attempts to injure star players will not be tolerated in the NHL. There are immediate consequences, and issues are dealt with on the ice. I’m sure some suspensions and/or fines will stem from this battle. Horton better be buying steak dinners for Ballard for the rest of the season considering Ballard had to deal with the judge, jury, and executioner otherwise known as Craig Rivet. Rivet, one of the most stand-up captains in the league, loves the rought stuff and I would not like to meet him in a dark alley…Buffalo is one team that has some bruisers that are not afraid to stick up for their teammates….proven in 2007’s line brawl with Ottawa.

Heads up for a great piece on Hartnell from The Freshness around 2pm today.
