Rangers, Barry Beck, and More!

Wednesday, March 9, 2011

The Rangers are in Anaheim tonight to take on the Ducks to begin an all important western road swing that will keep the Rangers above water in the race to the playoffs or drop below it. After 2 straight wins over Ottawa on the road and at home against the Flyers (What an ass kicking that was!) the Rangers must keep the momentum on their side. The time is now! Points are getting to be more precious for the Rangers than gold is on the open market. Players like Dubinsky, Callahan, Staal, and of course the “King” Henrik Lundqvist must lead the way. If Marian Gaborik is healthy (That’s still questionable?) and finds his scoring touch the better off the Rangers will be. All four lines need to do their jobs, The defense pairings must step their game up as well. Hard work and effort has been the key to the Rangers this season. Nothing less than that is acceptable. It’s playoff mode for the Rangers. They got a few gifts last night with Buffalo, New Jersey and Toronto losing. However, relying on others to do your job for you, is in my opinion, a certain way to miss the playoffs. It’s all in the players hands and there can be no excuses because excuses left the building a long time ago.

Tuesday night on the “Instigators Hockey Show” my co-host Pauly D and I had the great pleasure of having former Ranger Captain and Legend Barry Beck on as a special guest for a very informative chat. Barry was gracious enough to come on the show even though there was a 13 hour time difference (Bubba lives and works in Hong Kong) and stay on for over an hour to talk with us. If you are a Ranger fan you don’t want to miss out the chance at listening to what Barry’s up to these days and his time with the Rangers. We had plenty of laughs and great story telling. Trust Me! If you wish to listen to the show you can hit the link below.

As for me I will be in Ithaca NY Friday night for a best of 3 to do the color for the Quinnipiac Bobcats as they head on the road to take on the Cornell Big Red in the 2nd round of the ECAC playoffs in men’s Division 1 Hockey. This should be a great match up and after all it is the playoffs so one never knows, do they? If your interested in listening to play by play man Bill Schweizer and I hit the link. Tune in it’s great hockey!

Please feel free to make your comments known on the blog site and I will respond back to you. Don’t be afraid…Over and out!

Horrible loss last night. Not happy in the slightest. Such a bad way to come off of a great win against a rival.

Buffalo won tonight in OT as well. So we are officially now in 8th, 2 pts ahead of Carolina who has 2 games in hand. It's time to put up or shut up. Win or go home.

Wrath, Yes it was plain and simple. However they bounced back nicely with the win in San Jose.

See I told you Rangers would dust off the Flyers, but we beat the Leafs to help you out. Check out www.facebook.com/visitphilly & check out the pictures of us Flyer fans in TO. Hope the Rangers can hang on, I don't want to see the Leafs or Atlanta get in. I see your buddy Sqiggly is back on his skates, not that the Pens need him.
Talk @ You Soon

Wally, Nice to see even the Flyers can suck like any other team in the NHl, And what's wrong with Sciggly??? LMAO.

Leo Santojo said...

Winning the Habs game tomorrow would be great for us in the standings.

What do you think about Avery's role right now Kotsy?. Should Torts keep him out?

Opinion?

Kotsy's Korner said...

Leo, Avery seems to be Tort's whipping boy. Some days he likes him and some days he doesn't. When Avery is on he quite effective and really the only agitating player the Rangers have.
