Talk about going from hero to villain within a blink of the eye..Joel Ward would not of found a rock big enough to hide under recording an assist in Richards goal to tie the game for the Rangers...These emotional hits are tough too come back from..With that said, it takes 60 mins and a whole squad to win or lose a match and Holtbys effort on the Richards goal was child like..As much As I like the guy his inexperience is starting too show...
When it comes to one goal winning margins these side are top shelf..Caps 11 form 12 games ended in a 1 goal difference and the Rangers are 10 from 12..In a nutshell...During the playoffs..
Caps are 2 from 5 at home..
Rangers are 3 from 5 on the road..
As the series deepens as does the pressure on the the weaker net minder.(ie:Devils..)Holtby for mine ain`t gonna match it with Lundy and the Rangers are gonna board the hell out of the caps to grind out a win and a cross road meeting with Satan..

BOLA


CC-...You my man are on fire `n know your pucks..Well done amigo..Hope the Kings smoke the rear wheels all the way home for ya..
Mon-E..Every time I post my strike rate drops,when I dont it lifts. Mustafa knows the solutions and suggests the fact that our lady leprechaun has fake breasts..That answers my question..Rag a muffin train me must make whilst the Mon-E grins with pleasure..

PS..To that one that called Colonel a clown...

Thanks BOBO...

Phinn the last time the Rangers defeated the Caps was in the 1994 conference semi-finals. Believe it or not that game was also on May 9!!  We all remember the Rags winning the that year. The momentum is definitely on the side of the Rags after tying with 6.5 seconds remaining in Game 5 due to the bonehead penalty Ward took  and then the Rags capitalizing and winning it in OT.  They will seal the deal tonight with Henrik "King" Lundqvist between the pipes.

Book' em my nine lives cat friend!!  

RAGS to da bank

The Caps have suffered two backbreaking losses this series.  I think the Rangers can smell blood and will match the intensity of the Caps in the 1st period and the entire game. 

The Rangers are the more talented, more confident team right now and I think they close out the series tonight.

Rangers might win, but don't see that 1st period prognostication coming true pa_picks.  Minus game 1 NYR have just been doing what is necessary. Well, also, Holtby has been awfully lucky too as he has given up many juicy rebounds.

However, coach of the yr. for playoffs really needs to go to hunter. He has lulled Boston and now NYR into physical games where the Caps are happy to absorb hits that lead to them getting odd man rushes and players out of position.  and the way he has got them to sell out and block shots has been amazing. If he had them buy in before the playoffs they would have been #3 seed.

It's a cruel world out there bp Not only do I get a beatdown by the bookies. I then have a yahoo from Mexico getting on my case. He's a good capper, he has red stars coming out of his kazoo. I just think he drinks too much tequilla, and swallows the worm. Then he gets a little testy and takes it out on the poor old colonel. He'll show up again I'm sure phinn. Good Luck with the Rangers my friend
