April 2011


Viagra porn John Greenleaf Whittier wrote, viagra porn “For of all sad words of tongue or pen, viagra porn the saddest are these: ‘It might have been!’” There will be time in the coming days and weeks to discuss the postmortem on the New York Rangers season and to look ahead to next year. Viagra porn However, viagra porn now is the time to reflect back on the Blueshirts who let a golden opportunity slip through their fingers against the Washington Capitals.

Viagra porn “We had some opportunities we needed to grab and we didn’t. Viagra porn We had a couple of chances to get some wins in Game 1 or Game 4, viagra porn” Henrik Lundqvist explained to Rick Carpiniello of the Journal News. Viagra porn “You can’t expect to win every night, viagra porn but when you have that chance, viagra porn that opportunity, viagra porn you have to grab it. Viagra porn We didn’t do it. Viagra porn That’s not good enough.

Viagra porn The New York Rangers had enough chances in this series that their Game 5 loss could have been a precursor to being in the position to win the series at Madison Square Garden on Monday night.

Viagra porn Unfortunately, viagra porn the Rangers could not hold a lead late in Game 1 and then, viagra porn for the first time all season, viagra porn fail to hold a lead going into the third period of Game 4.

Viagra porn “I thought the most important thing of the series was in the first four games, viagra porn we have a lead (in three of them) in the third period, viagra porn and we come out with one win, viagra porn Rangers Coach John Tortorella told Carpiniello. Viagra porn “And there’s not many opportunities, viagra porn against a team we’re playing against, viagra porn when you have them there, viagra porn just to get it done one time. Viagra porn So I thought that was a very key situation within the series.”

Viagra porn For the first time in the series, viagra porn it appeared that the Rangers suffered from a carryover effect from the previous game. Viagra porn While the Blueshirts came out strong on their first shift, viagra porn the Capitals took over the tempo of the game and never looked back. Viagra porn The Rangers never seemed to get back off their heels until they fell behind by two goals.

Viagra porn The biggest problem is that the Rangers best line was the The Pest Line of Sean Avery, viagra porn Brian Boyle and Brandon Prust. Viagra porn All three are solid support players, viagra porn but they can’t be your best offensive players in a deciding game – and in Game 5 – they were.

Viagra porn When you look back at this series, viagra porn the easiest way to dissect it is to realize that Washington’s most talented player, viagra porn Alexander Ovechkin, viagra porn dominated the Rangers most talented offensive player, viagra porn Marian Gaborik.

Viagra porn The Rangers had to constantly account for Ovechkin for every second he was on the ice. Viagra porn The Capitals did not have the same concern when Gaborik, viagra porn or any other Ranger forward, viagra porn was on the ice. Viagra porn With Washington not having to worry about one specific player, viagra porn it was easier for them to carry out their defensive system and stay within the framework of that game plan.

Viagra porn It seemed that every Capitals rush and shot put the Rangers into a “life and death” shift on defense while every Rangers rush and shot attempt was a “day in the park” for the Capitals defense.

Viagra porn Prior to the game Boyle told NBC, viagra porn “We need to make it a little harder on them – get shots to the net, viagra porn some traffic [in front of the net and] second and third shot opportunities. Viagra porn We can’t be one shot and back out of the zone again.”

Viagra porn As it turns out for the Rangers, viagra porn this was far too often the case in the series, viagra porn never mind just Game 5.

Viagra porn The deeper into the playoffs the Capitals get, viagra porn the more interesting it will be to see how their new defensive style of play holds up against a team with more offensive weapons than the Rangers.

Viagra porn The Rangers might have been able to overcome all of their offensive shortcomings as compared to the Capitals if their power play showed any semblance of life. Viagra porn The reality was the Rangers power play proved to be their biggest detriment. Viagra porn They managed just one power play goal in 21 chances against the Capitals and finished the season going 2-46 in their last 14 games – playoffs included.

Viagra porn Given how well The Pest Line was playing in Game 5, viagra porn perhaps Torts should have kept them together on the power play rather than put Boyle between Brandon Dubinsky and Gaborik.

Viagra porn It is that pathetic power play that makes some of the strange calls/non-calls seem irrelevant, viagra porn but I need to vent so here goes.

Viagra porn All series long the officials were letting both teams get away with a lot of physical play after the whistle with no penalties being called. Viagra porn However, viagra porn as a result of the scrum following the Capitals first goal, viagra porn one of the referees decides to go and call a bench minor penalty against the Blueshirts.

Viagra porn With about eight and a half minutes to go in the third period, viagra porn Boyle had a partial break but was slashed on the stick but no penalty was called – even though there was one called against Avery in the third period of Game 4 which eventually led to the Caps tying goal.

Viagra porn Not too long after that, viagra porn Jason Chimera banged into Lundqvist while The King was in the crease and no calla was made – even though Boyle was called for two goalie interference penalties in Game 4.

Viagra porn Again, viagra porn given the Rangers anemic power play, viagra porn those two calls were not going to make a difference but they do make you go “Hmm”.

Viagra porn While the Rangers sorely missed the inspiration and perspiration that Ryan Callahan brings to the lineup, viagra porn to point to his loss as the reason the Rangers lost this series is not fair to the Capitals. Viagra porn Besides, viagra porn the Pittsburgh Penguins have survived and thrived without Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. Viagra porn

Viagra porn You have to wonder if the Blueshirts might have shown too much respect for the Capitals offense. Viagra porn The Rangers concentrated so much of their effort into stopping Washington that they were never able to generate enough “easy offense” such as breakaways and/or odd-man rushes.

Viagra porn In 1994, viagra porn we all agreed that “This One Will Last a Lifetime”. Viagra porn Unfortunately, viagra porn it is going to have last at least one more year. Viagra porn However, viagra porn for the first time in a long time things appear to be going in the right direction for the Rangers.

Viagra porn “We’re still in a process. Viagra porn So we just keep on going. Viagra porn We try to get better. Viagra porn I think there’s areas on our team where we need to get better. Viagra porn So we continue to build, viagra porn” Tortorella said to Carpiniello.

Viagra porn Well, viagra porn at least I have the New York Mets.

Viagra porn Damn, viagra porn I am screwed.

Viagra china New York Rangers meet the Los Angeles Kings. Viagra china One night after the Kings blew a 4-0 lead in a 6-5 overtime loss to the San Jose Sharks, viagra china the Blueshirts picked the wrong time to blow their first third period lead in 30 chances.

Viagra china The game might not have gone the way that Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau designed it, viagra china but his plan to shift the focus away from his players and on to him paid off in spades.

Viagra china The Rangers have been Team Adversity all season, viagra china including having to win their final game of the season and then hoping that Tampa Bay would defeat Carolina. Viagra china Now down three games to one, viagra china the Rangers face the ultimate must-win game on Saturday afternoon in what should be a raucous Verizon Center. Viagra china The Rangers have more than one more hill to climb this time, viagra china but Brian Boyle appeared to have the right attitude following last night’s devastating loss.

Viagra china “I’m not looking for three in a row. Viagra china We’re looking for one. Viagra china We just want to win Game 5, viagra china” Boyle told Rick Carpiniello of the Journal News. Viagra china “Tonight will be tough to be positive. Viagra china We’re going to dwell on it, viagra china and I think that’s part of it. Viagra china If you’re not a little upset about what happened there’s something wrong with you.”

Viagra china Carpiniello spelled out the height of the hill the Rangers have to climb.

Viagra china Here’s the bad news. Viagra china Teams trailing 3-1 have won 23 of 240 series in history (9.6 percent). Viagra china Here’s the good news: Twenty-one of those have happened since 1987, viagra china including twice last year. Viagra china And the Capitals did it to the Rangers in 2009, viagra china and had it done to them by Montreal in 2010, viagra china and have been involved in six (2-4) of those 23 comebacks.

Viagra china So what was it that caused Game 4 to turn 180 degrees away from the Rangers? Was it overconfidence on the part of the Blueshirts? Was it their youth surfacing for the first time in the series? Was it the Capitals rising to the challenge of desperation?

Viagra china The answer contains a combination of all three, viagra china but a big part of the blame has to go to the anemic Rangers power play which went 0-7 last night. Viagra china Just one power play goal in Games 1 and 4 and it is the Rangers heading back to Washington with a chance to end the series.

Viagra china The power play has become the NHL’s version of football’s prevent defense – the only thing it is preventing is the Rangers from winning. Viagra china Not only are the Rangers not generating much offense on the power play, viagra china but it continues to suck the life out of any momentum the team has built up.

Viagra china For the first time in this series the Rangers played a passive third period and it cost dearly as momentum swung Washington’s way in the final period of regulation with the Rangers having no answer to the Capitals onslaught.

Viagra china “We talked about all the things we wanted to do, viagra china about jumping and being on our toes and playing in their zone, viagra china but we didn’t do any of it, viagra china” Chris Drury explained to Larry Brooks of the NY Post. Viagra china “It was almost like we were in a situation we might not have been comfortable with and went, viagra china ‘Oh, viagra china bleep, viagra china what do we do now?’

Viagra china “And we got a little tight, viagra china” he said. Viagra china “At least that’s what I think happened. Viagra china We never really could make the play or put the couple of shifts together to get it back.”

Viagra china The third period was to the Rangers what the second period was to the Capitals. Viagra china Everything that went right suddenly went wrong. Viagra china The only difference is that the Rangers struck quickly to extend their lead to 3-0 while Washington methodically turned the game in their favor with three goals in just over 12 minutes.

Viagra china As the third period progressed, viagra china all I could think about was the movie “The Replacements”. Viagra china In it Gene Hackman is coaching a bunch of replacement football players who were unable to execute because of their own fears. Viagra china Hackman asks his players what they are afraid of. Viagra china After some dopey answer, viagra china Keanu Reeves hits on the point that Hackman’s character wanted to make.

Viagra china Reeves’s character relates that he is afraid of “quicksand” and offers up the following explanation.

Viagra china “You’re playing, viagra china and you think everything’s going fine, viagra china but then one thing goes wrong … and another … and another … and you try to fight back, viagra china but the harder you fight, viagra china the deeper you sink … until you can’t move … you can’t breathe … because you’re in over your head. Viagra china Like quicksand.”

Viagra china That line from the movie perfectly describes the New York Rangers in the third period of Game 4. Viagra china The harder they tried to free themselves from the Capitals “quicksand”, viagra china the depper they sank in it.

Viagra china You got the feeling that once Washington tied the game at 12:07; Game 4 instantly went into overtime mode with the next goal being the winner even if it were in regulation time. Viagra china It is in those types of situations where Washington’s skill level trumps the Rangers. Viagra china You knew it was going to take some sort of fluky goal to win the game for the Blueshirts. Viagra china In the end, viagra china it was the Capitals who scored the fluky goal.

Viagra china On the plus side, viagra china two Ranger free agents to be stepped up their play and definitely earned contracts for next season. Viagra china Ruslan Fedotenko has drawn much praise from Coach John Tortorella for his style of play and his potential to bring to the lineup the same attributes that Ryan Callahan brings to the table. Viagra china His contributions on the second and third goals were as important as goal scorers Marian Gaborik and Brandon Dubinsky.

Viagra china Matt Gilroy stepped up his play offensively and defensively and showed a physical side to his play early in the game. Viagra china I am not sure if the Rangers will be able to fit him into the salary cap or how his return could affect Michael Del Zotto, viagra china but Gilroy elevated his game in the biggest game of his NHL career.

Viagra china Of course what can you say about Henrik Lundqvist? His glove save on Alexander Ovechkin about midway through the first overtime was the only reason the game even went to double overtime – despite battling cramps in the overtime periods.

Viagra china As they approach Game 5, viagra china the Rangers just need to reflect back to the last couple of weeks and how they responded when faced with big games – the back-to-back wins against Boston and Philadelphia, viagra china the Game 82 victory against New Jersey and Sunday afternoon’s playoff win against Washington.

Viagra china The Blueshirts should not put Game 4 behind them. Viagra china Rather, viagra china they should embrace it as an example of what good they can accomplish when they are on their game and it should serve as an example of what can go wrong when they deviate from their game plan.

Viagra sales canada Prior to appearing on HBO’s “24/&” show leading up to the 2011 NHL Winter Classic the only “acting” experience Washington Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau’s resume contained was as an extra in the movie Slap Shot. Viagra sales canada Boudreau portrayed a member of the Hyannisport Presidents (green sweater #7).

Viagra sales canada With some extra time in between Game 3 and 4, viagra sales canada Boudreau returned to his “24/7” roots as he channeled his inner Rex Ryan. Viagra sales canada Much like the Jets coach, viagra sales canada Boudreau took to the air to act crazy – as a fox.

Viagra sales canada Dan Steinberg of The Washington Post offered up the following transcript of Boudreau’s interview with Washington radio station 105.9.

Viagra sales canada “Well, viagra sales canada the one thing, viagra sales canada its reputation is far better than the actual building, viagra sales canada” Boudreau said. Viagra sales canada “I mean, viagra sales canada it’s nothing. Viagra sales canada The locker rooms are horrible. Viagra sales canada The benches are horrible. Viagra sales canada There’s no room for anything. Viagra sales canada But the reputation of being in Madison Square Garden is what makes it famous. Viagra sales canada Also, viagra sales canada our building’s a lot louder, viagra sales canada too. Viagra sales canada So I mean, viagra sales canada they can say what they want, viagra sales canada but it’s not that loud in there.”

Viagra sales canada Madison Square Garden is the oldest building in the NHL and very well may be a dump, viagra sales canada but it is our dump – the same way Shea Stadium was to New York Mets fans.

Viagra sales canada His building is also the place where they have to rely on some guy blowing on a plastic horn in order to make noise. Viagra sales canada In addition, viagra sales canada I seem to remember seeing Caps fans dump water and ice on the Rangers bench and coaches. Viagra sales canada Bruce had better watch out because that liquid that might be spilled on him on Wednesday night might not be water.

Viagra sales canada You have to give Boudreau credit for shifting the focus off his team and on to himself – much like Ryan did for his Jets.

Viagra sales canada You have to remember that the Capitals have lost their last two playoff series after holding two game leads. Viagra sales canada After coming from behind to defeat the Rangers in 2009, viagra sales canada Washington won the first two games against Pittsburgh only to lose to the Penguins in seven games.

Viagra sales canada Last year, viagra sales canada the President Trophy winning Capitals could not close out Montreal as the eighth seeded Canadiens roared back to win in seven games after trailing three-games-to-one.

Viagra sales canada It is a point that Tarik El-Bashir of The Washington Post addressed.

Viagra sales canada “One doesn’t need to be a pessimist to see troubling parallels between what’s happened over the past 80 minutes and what transpired last April, viagra sales canada when Washington let a 3-1 series lead slip away and fell to Montreal in Game 7.”

Viagra sales canada In addition to shifting the focus off his team, viagra sales canada Boudreau continued deflecting by complaining about the officiating – a time-honored tradition among coaches in all sports.

Viagra sales canada Steinberg offered up the following diatribe from the Boudreau interview.

Viagra sales canada “During the playoffs you have a supervisor at every game, viagra sales canada so if you have a complaint or something that you want to lodge, viagra sales canada you talk to the supervisor and then he’ll talk to the referees and he’ll talk to the powers that be, viagra sales canada” Boudreau explained. Viagra sales canada “But the trick about that is it’s usually closing the door and the horse has left the barn, viagra sales canada it’s an over-and-done fact, viagra sales canada because the referees are different every game in the first series. Viagra sales canada .?.?.”

Viagra sales canada “So what they do is they can warn the other guys that this is what the other team’s talking about and look out for it, viagra sales canada but that’s pretty well what you can do. Viagra sales canada I mean, viagra sales canada the refs are very serious about this too, viagra sales canada this is their playoffs too, viagra sales canada their Stanley Cup, viagra sales canada so they don’t want to make any mistakes. Viagra sales canada But it happens.”

Viagra sales canada For his credit, viagra sales canada Rangers coach John Tortorella took the high road when asked about Boudreau’s comments during an interview with Michael Kay of ESPN 1050 radio in New York.

Viagra sales canada “We haven’t really thought too much about locker rooms, viagra sales canada how loud it is, viagra sales canada” Larry Brooks of the NY Post wrote. Viagra sales canada “I’m not even sure what he’s trying to say there.

Viagra sales canada “We’re just concerned with trying to be the best we can be and play the right way. Viagra sales canada Now, viagra sales canada I will say the fans gave us a tremendous lift last night. Viagra sales canada “I’m hoping that we can get off to a good start and continue on our way. Viagra sales canada That’s our concentration. Viagra sales canada Nothing else around us is going to (deter) us from our focus, viagra sales canada and that’s our next game.”

Viagra sales canada In addition to his general whining, viagra sales canada er complaining, viagra sales canada Boudreau vented about the rough treatment goalie Michal Neuvirth received from the Blueshirts in Game 3 and he called for the NHL to review what the Caps coach called a Marc Staal head shot to Mike Green as Alexander Ovechkin tied the game in the second period.

Viagra sales canada If you look back at the first three games, viagra sales canada Tortorella is correct when he said the Rangers could just as easily be ahead 2-1 in the series. Viagra sales canada A defensive breakdown cost them a chance to win Game 1 1-0 and a two-minute stretch in Game 2 cost the Rangers dearly.

Viagra sales canada The Blueshirts ability to stay within striking distance is not one that is lost on the Capitals – hence Boudreau’s attempt to shift the focus.

Viagra sales canada “The mood at the team’s Arlington practice facility was businesslike Monday. Viagra sales canada High-minute players stayed off the ice and those who spoke to reporters did so in calm, viagra sales canada measured tones, viagra sales canada” El-Bashir wrote.

Viagra sales canada “But it was still impossible to escape the feeling that the Capitals are at a crossroads in their postseason journey.”

Viagra sales canada Washington’s Brooks Laich confirmed El-Bashir’s opinion when he told the writer that the fourth game “is really going to swing the series. Viagra sales canada We could take a stranglehold on it, viagra sales canada or it could be a very long series.”

Viagra sales canada Given their past history, viagra sales canada the last thing the Capitals want is a long series because they have lost their last three Game 7 playoff matchups.

Discount lowest price viagra Forget everything that has been written about the magic of playoff beards because the Rangers are basking in “the Power of the Moustache” thanks to Brandon Dubinsky’s bank shot that propelled the Rangers to their Game 3 victory. Discount lowest price viagra

Discount lowest price viagra The only way that goal could have been more amazing was if The Moustache called the banks off Karl Alzner’s back and Alexander Ovechkin’s stick.

Discount lowest price viagra The Rangers victory on Sunday sets up a critical Game 4 on Wednesday. Discount lowest price viagra While it still might be too early for a “must-win” game, discount lowest price viagra it is not too early for a “really-need-to-win” game. Discount lowest price viagra The last thing the Rangers want to do is head back to the Verizon Center facing elimination. Discount lowest price viagra However, discount lowest price viagra the Capitals might be feeling even more pressure to win on Wednesday.

Discount lowest price viagra A Game 4 loss could cause flashbacks for the Capitals. Discount lowest price viagra After coming off a three- games-to-one deficit to defeat the Rangers in 2009, discount lowest price viagra Washington proceeded to blow a two-games-to-none lead against the Pittsburgh Penguins as they lost in seven games.

Discount lowest price viagra In 2010, discount lowest price viagra Washington frittered away a three-games-to-one lead as the Montreal Canadiens came back to win in seven games.

Discount lowest price viagra Lost in all of the talk of the Rangers perseverance in Game 3 was a pair of game-saving defensive plays. Discount lowest price viagra With about seven minutes left in the second period, discount lowest price viagra Marcus Johansson’s scoring opportunity after a Rangers power play was thwarted by a Dan Girardi shot block.

Discount lowest price viagra The second huge defensive play came six and half minutes into the third period when Ruslan Fedotenko’s diving backcheck broke up a Capitals’ two-on-one with Ovechkin and John Carlson.

Discount lowest price viagra Another unsung play was made by Marc Staal on the Rangers second goal. Discount lowest price viagra His ability to get his point shot over a sliding Matt Bradley, discount lowest price viagra and on goal, discount lowest price viagra was the key to Vinny Prospal’s rebound goal.

Discount lowest price viagra Even Erik Christensen and Brian Boyle deserve credit on the Rangers first goal as the Blueshirts finally got some traffic in front of Michal Neuvirth and the Rangers had a player get a shot on net.

Discount lowest price viagra Speaking of Boyle, discount lowest price viagra you have to love his work as the center on the “Pest Line” with Sean Avery and Brandon Prust. Discount lowest price viagra They are the reverse “Bash Brothers” from the old Disney Ducks movies. Discount lowest price viagra I say reverse because it is the Rangers smaller guys who are the physical players as opposed to the bigger guys in the movies.

Discount lowest price viagra The Rangers definitely made a more concerted effort to crowd Neuvirth in an attempt to solve the young netminder. Discount lowest price viagra

Discount lowest price viagra “Every scrum in front of our net, discount lowest price viagra they were hitting our goalie, discount lowest price viagra” Caps Coach Bruce Boudreau told Tracee Hamilton of The Washington Post. Discount lowest price viagra “They [the officials] kept warning them not to do it, discount lowest price viagra did nothing about it, discount lowest price viagra so they kept doing it.”

Discount lowest price viagra So what was the difference in Game 3 as opposed to the first two games?

Discount lowest price viagra “We scored some goals. Discount lowest price viagra I don’t think we did much different. Discount lowest price viagra I thought we got to the blue a little better today, discount lowest price viagra” Coach John Tortorella admitted in the post-game press conference. Discount lowest price viagra “Again, discount lowest price viagra it’s a tight-checking game. Discount lowest price viagra The chances are hard to come by both teams. Discount lowest price viagra We found a way to score a goal, discount lowest price viagra a couple of goals here. Discount lowest price viagra There’s no magic potion. Discount lowest price viagra We played the same way we want to play. Discount lowest price viagra We just scored three, discount lowest price viagra they scored two.”

Discount lowest price viagra As the Rangers look forward to Game 4, discount lowest price viagra they are going to need to continue crowding Neuvirth while finding a way to hit the net when they have open shots. Discount lowest price viagra

Discount lowest price viagra One interesting point during the game was made by Ed Olczyk who kept hammering home the point how Neuvirth was extremely reluctant to come out of his net to play the Rangers dump-ins. Discount lowest price viagra The Blueshirts might want to use that to their advantage by getting the puck in deep and going to work on the Capitals defense with an aggressive forecheck.

Discount lowest price viagra The defense is going to have continue being more active in the offense, discount lowest price viagra but it is a Catch-22 situation because the blueliners have to be careful to pick their spots and the forward have to be ready to cover the defensive zone if needed.

Discount lowest price viagra Speaking of Catch-22 situations, discount lowest price viagra the Caps first goal came as a result of the Rangers losing track of Ovechkin. Discount lowest price viagra The second goal came as Girardi focused in on Ovechkin to the point that Staal was left in front to defend three Caps.

Discount lowest price viagra Part of the way the Rangers can increase their offensive output is to be quicker in their transition game so that they can overcome the Capitals defensive system.

Discount lowest price viagra Obviously, discount lowest price viagra if the referees are going to start clamping down and handing out more penalties, discount lowest price viagra the Rangers must be careful during the post-whistle scrums. Discount lowest price viagra Far too often the referees will call the retaliation as opposed to the initiation.

Discount lowest price viagra While Boudreau and some of his players lamented the number of calls that went against the Capitals, discount lowest price viagra forward Matt Hendricks managed to put it all in perspective while issuing a warning for both teams as they head to Game 4 on Wednesday night.

Discount lowest price viagra “A lot of them, discount lowest price viagra obviously, discount lowest price viagra we were guilty, discount lowest price viagra” Hendricks said to Katie Carrera of The Washington Post. Discount lowest price viagra ”We’ve just gotta really watch our sticks there. Discount lowest price viagra They’re calling them a little tight now in the playoffs, discount lowest price viagra as everyone’s heard around the league we’ve just got to be a little more disciplined.”

Discount lowest price viagra Staying out the penalty box is one thing, discount lowest price viagra but the Rangers power play has to find a way to have an impact on this series. Discount lowest price viagra The problem is that the Blueshirts inability to score with the man advantage is heightened by their inability to generate any consistent offense on the power play – something which saps the energy out of the Garden and stalls any Rangers momentum.

Discount lowest price viagra In addition to getting more traffic in front of Neuvirth, discount lowest price viagra and finding a way to get more shots on net, discount lowest price viagra the Rangers have to get more movement on their power play – both in terms of passing the puck and player movement.

Discount lowest price viagra On the Rangers first five-on-three power play, discount lowest price viagra the Rangers spent the time looking to set up one perfect shot. Discount lowest price viagra The problem is that by standing around, discount lowest price viagra the Blueshirts made it easier for the Capitals to defend. Discount lowest price viagra Puck movement plus player movement equals more open shooting lanes.

Discount lowest price viagra I guess it is time to once again address the 800-pound gorilla in the rink known as the War room in Toronto. Discount lowest price viagra The NHL made the correct call on the goal that was disallowed at the end of the second period. Discount lowest price viagra However, discount lowest price viagra in this day and age, discount lowest price viagra why doesn’t the league get the “official game clock” synched up with the clock in the arena and synched up with the network’s clock.

Discount lowest price viagra The biggest problem was that it took NBC an hour before they ever showed the NHL’s overhead camera shot with the official clock inserted. Discount lowest price viagra You can bet that the MSG Network would have had that shot up as soon as possible during the second intermission instead of waiting until late in third period.

Discount lowest price viagra While I am speaking of MSG, discount lowest price viagra it is incomprehensible how they failed to show the Rangers post-game show immediately after Game 3. Discount lowest price viagra All we got was an abbreviated version before shuttling hockey out of the way for the New York Knicks pre-game show.

Discount lowest price viagra I understand that Cablevision and MSG see the Knicks as THE team; however, discount lowest price viagra did we need to see the Knicks pre-game show, discount lowest price viagra Game 1 of the Knicks-Celtics series, discount lowest price viagra and the Knicks post-game show on BOTH MSG and MSG+.

Discount lowest price viagra Why didn’t the network simply show the full Rangers post-game show live on MSG+ while showing the Knicks on MSG? I know there are some cable subscribers that do not get MSG+, discount lowest price viagra but it still makes no sense not to show it on MSG+ anyway. Discount lowest price viagra

Discount lowest price viagra Heck, discount lowest price viagra if Cablevision, discount lowest price viagra the Dolans and MSG were so adamant to show the Knicks on two channels (not to mention the fact the game was also on TNT with Marv Albert doing play-by-play), discount lowest price viagra then why not just show the post-game show on MSG2?

Discount lowest price viagra What purpose does it serve to have the Knicks on two channels?

Discount lowest price viagra How can Ranger fans expect the Metropolitan area newspapers and media outlets give their team any respect when the Rangers own network and corporate bosses will not show them any respect?

Viagra st The old sports adage states that a team is not in trouble into the playoffs until they lose a home game. Viagra st Well, viagra st that my best the case for some teams, viagra st but given the New York Rangers struggles at Madison Square Garden, viagra st the Blueshirts might be in for some trouble come Sunday afternoon – especially if they can’t do better than one goal in almost seven periods of hockey.

Viagra st In Game 1 it was a pair of Alexanders that did in the Rangers. Viagra st In Game 2, viagra st it was a fateful 117 seconds that spelled the end to the Rangers hope of stealing a game at the Verizon Center.

Viagra st I don’t know if it is reality or just a figment of my imagination, viagra st but it always seems that whenever the wheels come off the Rangers it happens in the second period. Viagra st It could be somewhat understandable given that the Rangers have the long way to make player changes – a crucial element to their game plan in order to get Marc Staal and Dan Girardi out against Alexander Ovechkin. Viagra st However, viagra st that was not the case in Game 2.

Viagra st I don’t know what Bruce Boudreau told his team during the first intermission, viagra st but it sure had the same effect as Knute Rockne’s “Win one for the Gipper” speech.

Viagra st The Rangers ratcheted up their physical play and forecheck and those improvements helped power a more productive offense with 13 shots. Viagra st The main problem is that they did not get nearly enough traffic in front of Michal Neuvirth.

Viagra st The second period started with the two teams each pulling a 180 degree turn in style and efficiency. Viagra st Everything the Rangers did right in the first period, viagra st they did wrong in the second period. Viagra st The Caps quick start rocked the Blueshirts back on their heels as Washington started to dictate the tempo.

Viagra st To me, viagra st the real sticking point is that the Rangers never managed to match Washington’s intensity level in the second period.

Viagra st During the third period, viagra st Sam Rosen and Joe Micheletti lamented the loss of Ryan Callahan by saying it was his type of game. Viagra st While it is apparent that Brandon Dubinsky looks lost without Cally, viagra st the Rangers problems go beyond just one player as the rest of the team has not been able to step up in his absence during these first two games.

Viagra st When the Capitals needed a goal to tie Game 1, viagra st their best player stepped up and found a way to knot the game. Viagra st Sadly, viagra st the Rangers best offensive player, viagra st Marian Gaborik, viagra st has had offensive chances but still has no goals in his last 11 games.

Viagra st Quite frankly, viagra st no one threw the Pittsburgh Penguins a pit party when they lost Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. Viagra st Instead, viagra st the Pens found a way to hold on to the fourth spot in the Eastern Conference and managed to find a way to win Game 1 against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Viagra st As the series comes north to the Garden, viagra st the Rangers have to start finding ways to win. Viagra st Of course, viagra st that is easier said than done when your offense has gone missing yet again.

Viagra st Micheletti made it a point to keep saying that Henrik Lundqvist was in Washington’s head. Viagra st That might be true, viagra st but it is becoming apparent that Neuvirth is playing mind games with the Rangers’ heads as well.

Viagra st You have to admit that the Washington Capitals are the team the New York Rangers want to be. Viagra st The Capitals’ mid-season turnaround transformed a run-and-gin team into one that concentrates on their defensive responsibilities and then capitalizes (pun intended) on their offensive chances. Viagra st In addition to having more firepower the Rangers, viagra st it is their ability to bury their chances that has made the difference in this series.

Viagra st While Jason Arnott is a veteran with 31 playoff goals, viagra st no one is ever going to mistake Jason Chimera for a sniper.

Viagra st Hmm, viagra st I am noticing a pattern here. Viagra st In Game 1 it was two Alexanders that did in the Rangers. Viagra st In Game 2, viagra st it was two Jasons. Viagra st I suppose it will be either a pair of Matts (Bradley and Hendricks) or, viagra st God forbid, viagra st a pair of Johns (Carlson and Erskine) that spell doom on Sunday.

Viagra st I am not sure what lineup changes, viagra st if any, viagra st Coach John Tortorella will make for Game 3. Viagra st He did not seem to enthusiastic with the idea of Mats Zuccarello seeing much ice time in the playoffs at this point.

Viagra st Torts expressed concern to Andrew Gross of NorthJersey.com as to “whether he can handle the size and the overall consistency of playoff hockey, viagra st I’m not sure.”

Viagra st However, viagra st given the Rangers inability to score, viagra st a later comment by the coach might leave a glimmer of hope for Zuccarello.

Viagra st “It’s still an open book for him as to where he sits as a National Hockey Leaguer. Viagra st He sees the ice. Viagra st He makes some plays that some players don’t see, viagra st” Tortorella admitted.

Viagra st While there will be some question as to what could be done with the forwards, viagra st there is one lineup change that definitely needs to be made. Viagra st Bryan McCabe is giving the Rangers nothing on offense – especially on the power play – and has become more of a liability on defense. Viagra st It is time for former Capital Steve Eminger to see playing time and add a little grit on the blue line.

Viagra st The Rangers must approach Game 3 as a “must-win” game along the same lines as the final game of the season against the New Jersey Devils. Viagra st Perhaps the result of the first two games in general, viagra st and Game 2 specifically, viagra st might have been different if they entered the game thinking it was a “must-win” scenario.

Viagra st During Friday morning’s press conference, viagra st Tortorella offered up the following answer to a question from Larry Brooks of the NY Post in reference to whether the Rangers had their backs against the wall.

Viagra st “I never think our backs are against the wall, viagra st” was the coach’s response. Viagra st According to a transcript from Newsday’s Steve Zipay, viagra st Brooks and Tortorella engaged in yet another round in their ongoing verbal jousting.
Kind of makes you wonder how the post game press conference will turn out.

Discount viagra Whether you are a fan of hockey or night, discount viagra there is one universal truth that sports fans have to agree upon – there is nothing more exciting than overtime playoff hockey. Discount viagra That is, discount viagra unless your team is involved. Discount viagra In that case, discount viagra overtime is torture – especially if your team loses.

Discount viagra Once again Team Adversity (aka the New York Rangers) will get another chance on Friday to show if they can bounce back off the campus. Discount viagra While the Capitals have the momentum coming out of Game 1, discount viagra the old adage is that momentum only lasts as long as the next day’s pitcher – or in this case – the next day’s game.

Discount viagra “I think playoff series are surges, discount viagra going against you, discount viagra going with you, discount viagra” Coach John Tortorella told Steve Zipay of Newsday before the game. Discount viagra “You get a win under your belt, discount viagra you have a surge going with you. Discount viagra It changes quickly. Discount viagra That’s very important in succeeding in these types of series, discount viagra how you handle surges. Discount viagra There’s a lot of different things come out of a win and a loss.”

Discount viagra If the Rangers are going to pull even in this series, discount viagra they are going to have to adjust their game plan a bit. Discount viagra The Blueshirts can’t afford to play most of the game in their zone like they did in Game 1. Discount viagra They are going to have to find a way to get a meaningful forecheck going against the Capitals.

Discount viagra In addition, discount viagra the Rangers need to get more traffic in front of Michal Neuvirth. Discount viagra It was no coincidence that Brian Boyle was lurking in front of Neuvirth when Matt Gilroy opened the scoring.

Discount viagra More importantly, discount viagra they have to correct the ice balance problem that plagued them on both Capitals goals. Discount viagra On the first goal, discount viagra and we will discuss that a little later, discount viagra Marc Staal crossed over from his left d-man position and collided with Daniel Girardi. Discount viagra As a result, discount viagra the Rangers were left scrambling around in their own end as they allowed Alexander Ovechkin to bang home the rebound. Discount viagra Looking back, discount viagra the ice balance problems started on the Rangers passive forecheck where they had two players in deep around the crease. Discount viagra The two players in deep like that left a lot of room through the middle of the ice and set the stage for the Staal crossover.

Discount viagra On the game-winning goal, discount viagra the Rangers got caught out of position as the forwards flew out of the zone as Chris Drury (who would eventually fly the zone as well) and Staal both were unable to clear the puck.

Discount viagra The most interesting point of the game was the way both teams opened up their play at the start of overtime after playing close to the vest for 60 minutes. Discount viagra It is not very often that teams turn to a pond hockey style of play in overtime. Discount viagra It is something to file away for future use in this series.

Discount viagra The Capitals transformation into a defensive team is remarkable considering it was done on the fly during the season. Discount viagra However, discount viagra when you take a look at their team, discount viagra it goes against the nature of their team. Discount viagra The start of overtime shows that Washington still has that tendency to play wide open – something that still might come back to bite them in the end before the final script is written on this series.

Discount viagra The point to consider from last night was the Caps defense that good or were the Rangers more content to sit back and counterpunch? No one expected the Rangers to be the Flying Frenchmen, discount viagra but they were far too passive in their approach to the game.

Discount viagra I guess now is a good time to address the 800-pound gorilla in the rink – the Capitals first goal. Discount viagra Much to their credit, discount viagra the Rangers were pretty much playing down the call, discount viagra or rather, discount viagra non-call from referee Brian Pochmara.

Discount viagra “We’re not going to whine about it, discount viagra” Tortorella offered after the game.

Discount viagra The Rangers really have no choice because the last thing they need to is start criticizing official or the war room in Toronto. Discount viagra However, discount viagra it is not going stop fans from wondering what happened.

Discount viagra To me, discount viagra it looked like Pochmara was ready to blow the whistle before the puck went in the net. Discount viagra Pochmara seems to be undecided as to whether or not to blow his whistle. Discount viagra Then amid the Capitals celebration, discount viagra Pochmara does not point to the net. Discount viagra Instead, discount viagra he throws his hands up in the air signifying that the play has been whistled dead, discount viagra as opposed to a goal being scored. Discount viagra It is one of those calls that change from referee to referee – appoint not lost on Henrik Lundqvist.

Discount viagra “It’s underneath me and I think the whistle’s going to come, discount viagra so I move, discount viagra and it just crossed the line, discount viagra” The King explained to Zipay. Discount viagra “Sometimes they’re real fast on blowing the whistle, discount viagra but it is what it is. Discount viagra I’m kind of stuck in that position, discount viagra you hope for a whistle or someone to come and clear the puck . Discount viagra . Discount viagra . Discount viagra I felt like we were playing really well right after our goal.”

Discount viagra Interestingly enough, discount viagra Pochmara’s refereeing partner Dan O’Halloran factored into a similar play three years ago – call that also went against the Blueshirts.

Discount viagra In Game 2 against Pittsburgh, discount viagra the Rangers were trailing the Penguins 1-0 when Martin Straka’s apparent game-tying goal was waived off on a quick whistle courtesy of O’Halloran.

Discount viagra While I am on a whining rant about the officials, discount viagra I do give them credit that O’Halloran and Pochmara let the two teams play and let them get some of their frustration out during post-whistle scrums. Discount viagra However, discount viagra I do have one bone to pick with one call and one non-call.

Discount viagra It was bizarre that Mats Zuccarello gets called for a boarding penalty, discount viagra especially when you consider that no Capital player ever hit the board. Discount viagra However, discount viagra the referees somehow missed John Erskine’s boarding/head shot against Erik Christensen moments earlier.

Discount viagra With both teams focusing on their defensive games, discount viagra this series is the classic case of the unstoppable force versus the immovable object. Discount viagra The winner will be the team that blinks last. Discount viagra In Game 1, discount viagra the Rangers were the team that blinked first.

Viagra female u k The hardest game to win in sports is the deciding game in any playoff series. Viagra female u k Just ask the 2008/2009 New York Rangers who held a commanding three-games-to-one lead against Washington before watching the Capitals rise up off the ice to win Game 7.

Viagra female u k This year marks the sixth time the Rangers and Capitals have faced off in the playoffs – with the Capitals holding a three series to two lead. Viagra female u k The first playoff showdown was in the Patrick Division Finals (aka Second Round) in 1986 as the Blueshirts overcame an 8-1 loss in Game 2 to win the series in six games.

Viagra female u k I bring up the 1985/1986 Rangers because this year’s team is very similar to that one that beat Washington. Viagra female u k The 1986 team did not feature a big scorer during the regular season as rookie Mike Ridley paced the team with 65 points (22 goals – which was second to Bob Brooke’s 24).

Viagra female u k That team featured six players who scored 20 or more goals – including veteran Pierre LaRouche who has 20 in 18 games after being loaned out to the AHL’s Hershey Bears for 32 games as Coach Ted Sator favored a defensive style.

Viagra female u k The Rangers, viagra female u k who would eventually lose the Eastern Conference Finals to Patrick Roy and the Montreal Canadiens in five games, viagra female u k were lead by nine players who were 24 or younger with three years or less NHL experience: Mike Allison, viagra female u k Brooke, viagra female u k Jan Erixon, viagra female u k Kelly Miller, viagra female u k James Patrick, viagra female u k Ridley, viagra female u k Tomas Sandstrom and John Vanbiesbrouck.

Viagra female u k Some fans believe the Rangers are playing with “house money” given that they were thisclose away from missing the playoffs. Viagra female u k Fortunately, viagra female u k the Rangers are not going to take this stance.

Viagra female u k “I expect to win, viagra female u k and that’s the expectation of our team, viagra female u k” Brandon Prust commented to Larry Brooks of the NY Post. Viagra female u k “I believe we have the character, viagra female u k confidence and work ethic throughout our lineup to take care of our business in this series against a very good team. Viagra female u k

Viagra female u k “To everybody else we’re underdogs, viagra female u k but we go in there thinking we can handle any team in the NHL, viagra female u k because we’ve proved that during the season.”

Viagra female u k The Rangers-Capitals series shapes up as a chance for redemption. Viagra female u k The Rangers, viagra female u k as a team, viagra female u k have a chance to redeem themselves for allowing a three-games-to-one series lead slip through their fingers when they lost to the Capitals in 2009. Viagra female u k

Viagra female u k Veterans Chris Drury and Marian Gaborik also have a chance to redeem themselves on a personal level. Viagra female u k

Viagra female u k For Drury, viagra female u k the 2010/2011 season was a wash due to a myriad of injuries, viagra female u k but his inspiration paid off in his first game back when he scored to tie up the Devils game. Viagra female u k While Drury can’t replace Ryan Callahan’s offense or the bulldog-like attitude he brings, viagra female u k the captain does bring the ability to play defense/kill penalties and, viagra female u k most importantly, viagra female u k adds another faceoff option to go along with Brandon Dubinsky.

Viagra female u k Gaborik has also labored with injuries this season, viagra female u k and it is possible that he is not completely recovered from his shoulder, viagra female u k groin and concussion injuries that cost him 20 games this season. Viagra female u k However, viagra female u k since NHL teams treat injuries like the plans for the Normandy invasion, viagra female u k we may never know “the rest of the story” as Paul Harvey would say. Viagra female u k

Viagra female u k While Gaborik’s offense has taken a hit as the Rangers have had to grind out more games, viagra female u k his ability to get off quick shots must be taken advantage of – in other words – Gaborik has to think and look shot every time his the offensive zone. Viagra female u k If he does, viagra female u k he could pull a “LaRouche” who scored 8 goals and 9 assists in 16 playoff games.

Viagra female u k Everyone is pretty much in agreement as to what the Rangers have to do to win this series. Viagra female u k It is a given that that Henrik Lundqvist (11-6-2 versus Washingon) has to play like The King in order for the offensively-challenged Rangers to win. Viagra female u k Given their struggles offensively, viagra female u k the Blueshirts must win the battle of the special teams. Viagra female u k Keeping Alexander Ovechkin off the core sheet (only two assists in the four regular season games) is also a must.

Viagra female u k The Rangers won the season series from the Capitals winning three of four (including one in a shootout). Viagra female u k Captain Chris Drury realizes that the playoffs are an entirely different story than the regular season.

Viagra female u k “I’ve been on teams that have done well in the series and lost in the playoffs, viagra female u k and vice versa, viagra female u k” Drury related to reporters on a conference call. Viagra female u k “To me, viagra female u k it’s a whole new season and something we can learn from, viagra female u k having played against them and had success in the year. Viagra female u k Ultimately, viagra female u k it is a totally different season, viagra female u k different animal, viagra female u k and the last few weeks we know they’ve done different things to have success. Viagra female u k We’re going to have to be ready, viagra female u k no matter what happened in the regular season.”

Viagra female u k However, viagra female u k the games most people remember are the 7-0 shellacking the Rangers put on Washington on December 12 and the 6-0 dismantling of the Capitals in Washington on February 25. Viagra female u k Both of those games will go a long way in determining the winner of this series.

Viagra female u k Following the December loss, viagra female u k the Capitals realized that they had to address their problems in the defensive zone. Viagra female u k As a result, viagra female u k Coach Bruce Boudreau changed the team’s focus from its trademark offensive nature to one that centered on keeping the puck out of the net – a most daunting in-season task.

Viagra female u k “It was a dramatic change, viagra female u k” Capitals GM McPhee told Barry Svrluga of The Washington Post. Viagra female u k “And changing systems in the middle of the season is dangerous, viagra female u k because if it doesn’t work, viagra female u k you have players who are confused. Viagra female u k Your system of play has to become ingrained. Viagra female u k It has to become second nature. Viagra female u k You can’t go on the ice thinking about a system because then the game’s going to be going by you.”

Viagra female u k The changed seemed to work in the interim as the Capitals pulled out of a nosedive and posted a 6-1-3 record in their next 10 games.

Viagra female u k The February loss also had a profound effect on Washington. Viagra female u k It was the last game that Mike Green played after suffering a concussion on a hit from Derek Stepan. Viagra female u k Green returns to the Caps lineup for the first time in the series opener.

Viagra female u k That loss also forced GM McPhee to start looking for help for his team as he reeled in Jason Arnott and Dennis Wideman before the NHL trade deadline. Viagra female u k Wideman helped fill in for Green and Tom Poti who has been out of the lineup since late January with a lower body injury. Viagra female u k Wideman, viagra female u k who had 10 goals on the year (9PPG) is out of the lineup and is listed as week-to-week due to a leg hematoma and compartment syndrome.

Viagra female u k That 6-0 loss is also significant because Michal Neuvirth, viagra female u k who is making the Game 1 start, viagra female u k was in goal for that game. Viagra female u k To be fair, viagra female u k he was in goal for Washington’s lone win a 5-3 victory on November 9 that is remembered for being the game when Derek Boogaard scored his first goal in 234 games.

Viagra female u k In the end, viagra female u k that 6-0 loss was the springboard for the furious rush Washington put on to close the season as they went 16-2-1 in their final 19 games.

Viagra female u k Inevitably, viagra female u k this series is going to come down to how well the Rangers execute their game plan and the team remembering, viagra female u k with apologies to Herb Brooks, viagra female u k that they are not talented enough to win on talent alone. Viagra female u k The Rangers must live up to their Larry Brooks nickname of “Black-and-Blueshirts”. Viagra female u k When the Rangers play their game to perfection, viagra female u k they are a hard team to beat. Viagra female u k Their 21-16-3 record against playoff teams and their gritty win against Philadelphia and Boston in back-to-back games show what the team can accomplish. Viagra female u k However, viagra female u k when they are off their game, viagra female u k then you are faced with clunkers like the Senators, viagra female u k Islanders and Thrashers games.

Viagra female u k One telling stat is both teams ability to put games away when they hold the lead after two periods. Viagra female u k The Rangers were 29 for 29 when entering the third period with a lead and the Capitals were 29-0-3. Viagra female u k One of those shootout losses was to the Rangers with Martin Biron in goal.

Viagra female u k Granted the Rangers task would be a little bit easier if Callahan were healthy and in the lineup, viagra female u k but you might as well wish for a return of a vintage Mark Messier and Brian Leetch as well. Viagra female u k However, viagra female u k the one thing we have learned about this Rangers team is that they have a remarkable capacity to stare adversity in it face and use it as a rallying point – which is a great asset come the playoffs when teams seem to face adversity during every shift.

Viagra female u k It is the Rangers ability to confront and overcome adversity that should lead them to a hard-fought win in seven games. Viagra female u k The Blueshirts will get a huge break with a couple of extra days off during the series in which they can rest the bumps and bruises that are sure to come.

Cheap viagra order online Whether or not the New York Rangers make the playoffs this season, cheap viagra order online their 5-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils leaves a much better taste in the mouth than last season’s bitter taste following the shootout loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

Cheap viagra order online With their playoff destiny out of their hands, cheap viagra order online the Blueshirts now can only sit and wait the outcome of tonight’s Tampa Bay Lightning and Carolina Hurricanes game.

Cheap viagra order online If the Rangers do fall just short of the playoffs, cheap viagra order online there will be plenty of time to bring down the breakdowns that cost them a shot at playing for the Stanley Cup. Cheap viagra order online The 0-5-1 streak, cheap viagra order online the crucial losses to the Sabres, cheap viagra order online Islanders, cheap viagra order online and Thrashers, cheap viagra order online and the shootout loss to the Senators will be discussed over and over.

Cheap viagra order online Now is a time to sit back and celebrate a team that caused Ranger fans to fall in love with their team all over again. Cheap viagra order online Fans witnessed a team that spent far more nights giving it their all as opposed to phoning efforts. Cheap viagra order online So much so, cheap viagra order online that is caused Larry Brooks of the “NY Post” to coin them the “Black-and-Blueshirts”.

Cheap viagra order online It was that “give blood, cheap viagra order online play hockey” attitude that allowed them to still have a chance at the playoffs come game 82. Cheap viagra order online It is also the same reason that their playoff fate rests in the hands of the Hurricanes. Cheap viagra order online

Cheap viagra order online The Rangers style of play that fans fell in love with is the same one that forced the likes of Ryan Callahan to miss 21 games this season – plus whatever playoffs games he might or might not miss.

Cheap viagra order online While the Rangers struggled to score goals this season, cheap viagra order online and they did, cheap viagra order online they were automatic when they did score and manage to take a lead into the third period. Cheap viagra order online Their victory over the Devils made it 29 for 29 – numbers that are very Mariano Rivera like. Cheap viagra order online It is a figure that the Rangers should be proud of and look to build upon come the 2011/2012 season.

Cheap viagra order online There will be plenty of time to review each of the players’ plusses and minuses this season once the Rangers fate is determined. Cheap viagra order online However, cheap viagra order online there are some general pluses that deserve to be celebrated – whether the Blueshirts’ season continues or not.

Cheap viagra order online Ranger fans have long been clamoring to let the kids play. Cheap viagra order online Whether by choice or salary cap circumstance, cheap viagra order online the Rangers did let the kids play and they showed that the future is bright for the Rangers. Cheap viagra order online

Cheap viagra order online That bright future begins and ends with the man between the pipes – Henrik Lundqvist. Cheap viagra order online While The King did have his struggles, cheap viagra order online he played solid hockey down the stretch starting 26 consecutive games and keeping the offensively-challenged Rangers alive come the last days of the season.

Cheap viagra order online The Callahan, cheap viagra order online Artem Anisimov and Brandon Dubinsky showed that they earned top line minutes and will make a great second line if the Rangers can get a strong first line going. Cheap viagra order online Derek Stepan showed that he has the potential to be an impact forward and could be the anchor of that first line.

Cheap viagra order online They integrated two rookie defensemen into their top four blueline rotation. Cheap viagra order online While there were some growing pains, cheap viagra order online Ryan McDonagh and Michael Sauer joined Marc Staal and Daniel Girardi to help form the core of a solid defensive corps.

Cheap viagra order online I know that there are still some tough decisions to make as the Rangers and the NHL approach the NHL Draft in June and the impending free agent frenzy that starts July 1. Cheap viagra order online Again, cheap viagra order online there will be time to review and preview the Rangers as they look forward to their off-season business.

Cheap viagra order online Right now all eyes turn to the RBC Center in Raleigh, cheap viagra order online North Carolina. Cheap viagra order online The hard charging Hurricanes are 8-1- in their last 10 games while the Lightning are 6-3-1 and are cemented into the fifth slot in the Eastern Conference with a playoff matchup against the Pittsburgh Penguins on the horizon.

Cheap viagra order online Tampa Bay also approaches tonight with a heavy heart as assistant coach Wayne Fleming battles a serious health issue. Cheap viagra order online The Lightning issued the following statement today:

Cheap viagra order online Tampa Bay Lightning assistant coach Wayne Fleming is home resting comfortably after undergoing a procedure on Thursday, cheap viagra order online April 7 at the H. Cheap viagra order online Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute in Tampa. Cheap viagra order online Fleming was recently diagnosed as having a primary brain tumor.

Cheap viagra order online On the plus side, cheap viagra order online it appears that Tampa Bay will be playing to win. Cheap viagra order online At about 4pm, cheap viagra order online the Lightning’s official Twitter site offered the following tweet:

Cheap viagra order online Lightning will dress most regulars tonight against Carolina. Cheap viagra order online Hedman will return from his lower body injury. Cheap viagra order online Mike Smith in net. Cheap viagra order online Malone out.

Cheap viagra order online So for one night, cheap viagra order online Ranger fans will put away the red, cheap viagra order online white and blue and don the lightning bolt and join Tampa Bay fans in a chorus of “Let’s Go Lightning!”

Discount canadian cialis It is ingrained from birth that nothing ever comes easy as a Ranger fan. Discount canadian cialis That is one of those givens that is a universal truth. Discount canadian cialis But why does every season have to seem like it is a scene out of a bad “Groundhog Day” sequel?

Discount canadian cialis Last season’s Game 82 debacle against Philadelphia was bad enough, discount canadian cialis but this year is could be even worse aS the Rangers lost the ability to control their own playoff destiny. Discount canadian cialis The Rangers have to hope that the Thrashers saved a little something for their home game against Carolina. Discount canadian cialis If that does happen, discount canadian cialis then they once again can control their own destiny.

Discount canadian cialis The playoff permutations still present a host of options based on the Rangers and Hurricanes winning games in regulation/overtime (i.e. Discount canadian cialis ROW) as opposed to shootout wins and what the Buffalo Sabres do in their remaining two games.

Discount canadian cialis Whatever the permutation or the result of the Thrashers-Hurricanes game, discount canadian cialis the Rangers face a must-win game in Game 82 (again) and the opponent is their division and Hudson River rival New Jersey Devils.

Discount canadian cialis While the Devils have had an incredible run (26-14-3) since Jacques Lemaire took over from John Maclean, discount canadian cialis they have slacked off and are only 4-5-1 in their last 10 games.

Discount canadian cialis Despite some of the most brutal late game losses from the Rangers during the past week plus, discount canadian cialis the Blueshirts are 6-3-1 in their last 10 games.

Discount canadian cialis Come Saturday afternoon, discount canadian cialis you can pretty much throw both teams records out the window. Discount canadian cialis The Rangers-Devils matchup represents New Jersey’s “Stanley Cup”. Discount canadian cialis You know the Devils organization would relish the opportunity to put the final nail in the Rangers coffin.

Discount canadian cialis If you think the New York Islanders get pumped up for their games against the Rangers, discount canadian cialis just wait until Lemaire’s boy hit the Garden ice. Discount canadian cialis It wouldn’t surprise me to see Ken Daneyko and Scott Stevens lace them just one more time to keep the Metropolitan area without playoff hockey for the first time since 1966. Discount canadian cialis Yes, discount canadian cialis you read that correctly. Discount canadian cialis That is the last time the Metro srea did not have at least one team in the NHL playoffs.

Discount canadian cialis In all seriousness, discount canadian cialis the Devils are expected to be without Dainius Zubrus , discount canadian cialis Colin White and Anton Volchenkov.

Discount canadian cialis Conversely, discount canadian cialis the Rangers recalled Mats Zuccarello from Connecticut and Coach John Tortorella admitted that the specter of (again) failing in the shootout in Game 82 does play a part.

Discount canadian cialis “Yeah, discount canadian cialis it has to come into our thinking. Discount canadian cialis It’s crazy, discount canadian cialis but it has to come into our thinking. Discount canadian cialis But he’ll come up and see what happens, discount canadian cialis” Tortorella admitted when quizzed by Rick Carpiniello of the Journal News.

Discount canadian cialis To their credit, discount canadian cialis the Devils are keeping a low public profile in reference to playing spoilers.

Discount canadian cialis “We do have a rivalry against them, discount canadian cialis so it definitely would be a little bit of a—not satisfaction because, discount canadian cialis seriously, discount canadian cialis we’re not going to win anything, discount canadian cialis” Martin Brodeur told Tom Gulitti of NorthJersey.com. Discount canadian cialis

Discount canadian cialis “We’re not getting back in the playoffs if we beat them, discount canadian cialis so it’s not to that point. Discount canadian cialis But people care. Discount canadian cialis It’s been tough on our fans to a certain extent to see, discount canadian cialis especially (after) the last time we played them in the playoffs (a five-game Rangers’ triumph in 2008). Discount canadian cialis Even in the regular season they’ve been playing well against us on the upper hand. Discount canadian cialis Between fans there’s a lot of things going on more than us, discount canadian cialis players. Discount canadian cialis I don’t think I know one guy on the other team to talk to. Discount canadian cialis I just play against them and that’s it.”

Discount canadian cialis As I said, discount canadian cialis that is the Devils public stance. Discount canadian cialis Gulitti offered a different side to the story when offering anonymity.

Discount canadian cialis Gulitti wrote, discount canadian cialis “A couple of players did admit privately that they would like to knock the Rangers out, discount canadian cialis but no one would say that on the record.”

Discount canadian cialis Quite frankly, discount canadian cialis I would expect the Devils to feel any other way. Discount canadian cialis I am sure the Rangers would hold the same opinion of the skate were on the other foot.

Discount canadian cialis In looking ahead to Saturday afternoon’s game, discount canadian cialis the Rangers have to be prepared to take the game to the Devils from the opening faceoff. Discount canadian cialis Think back to Game 2 of the 1994 Eastern Conference Finals when Mark Messier set the tone on the very first shift of the game. Discount canadian cialis Granted, discount canadian cialis there is no Mark Messier on this year’s team, discount canadian cialis but there is no reason that, discount canadian cialis as a team, discount canadian cialis they can’t come out and seize the tempo of the game.

Discount canadian cialis They did it during the first five minutes against Atlanta and then seemed to settle back into whatever game Atlanta wanted to play. Discount canadian cialis A repeat of that will spell disaster on Saturday.

Discount canadian cialis While the Rangers have shown tremendous ability to bounce back off the ice all season long, discount canadian cialis they still have proven to be a fragile team. Discount canadian cialis The Blueshirts might have been able to right the ship against the Thrashers if Atlanta hadn’t scored their second goal just 15 seconds later. Discount canadian cialis Frankly, discount canadian cialis the Rangers were downright lucky not to be down three goals on that next shift.

Discount canadian cialis You have to figure that the game is going to be a hard hitting and possibly nasty game that is going to require the special teams to step up. Discount canadian cialis With inconsistent scoring at the heart of the Rangers problem, discount canadian cialis now is a good a time as any for the power play to step up at a crucial time.

Discount canadian cialis For that to happen, discount canadian cialis and for the Rangers to produce offense at even strength, discount canadian cialis they MUST get traffic in front of the net – not at the side of the net. Discount canadian cialis The Rangers can launch as many shots on goal as they want, discount canadian cialis but if they are not getting traffic in front for screens and deflections, discount canadian cialis they will be looking at an even earlier tee time.

Discount canadian cialis The simple fact is one that has been hammered home by pretty much every writer, discount canadian cialis blogger and Blueshirt fan. Discount canadian cialis The New York Rangers are not a talented enough team to get by on anything else that a 100% effort on 100% of their shifts. Discount canadian cialis The time about worrying about other teams is over. Discount canadian cialis

Discount canadian cialis The only thing they can do right now is concentrate on their effort against the New Jersey Devils. Discount canadian cialis They can’t be worried about the Carolina Hurricanes, discount canadian cialis or even the Buffalo Sabres who are just one point ahead of the Rangers. Discount canadian cialis If Buffalo loses at home tonight to Philadelphia, discount canadian cialis then a Rangers win makes Buffalo’s final game of the year at Columbus a must-win for the Sabres.

Discount canadian cialis The final word goes to Coach Tortorella.

Discount canadian cialis “Yeah, discount canadian cialis we’ve been trying to … again, discount canadian cialis we’re a good hockey team. Discount canadian cialis We’ve had a really good year.

Cost of viagra No one ever said being a Ranger fan was easy, cost of viagra but the “fickle finger of fate” couldn’t let everyone bask in the glow of the Blueshirts improbable come from behind victory for even 12 hours – never mind 24 hours. Cost of viagra The New York Rangers confirmed the morning’s rumor that Ryan Callahan is out indefinitely after hurting himself while blocking Zdeno Chara’s shot late in the third period.

Cost of viagra While the exact extent of the injury is up in the air – reporters say Callahan broke his right ankle while the Rangers official press release says fractured right leg – the prognosis is still the same according to Coach John Tortorella who termed called the injury “long term”.

Cost of viagra There is no doubt in the matter that whoever replaces Callahan in the lineup will have mighty big skates to fill. Cost of viagra In addition to having a career season offensively (23 goals, cost of viagra 25 assists, cost of viagra 48 points and 10 PPGs in just 60 games), cost of viagra the Rangers alternate captain is the heart and soul of the team.

Cost of viagra The Rangers did respond well when Callahan was out of the lineup for 19 games after suffering a broken hand while blocking a Kris Letang shot. Cost of viagra The Blueshirts went 10-7-2 during that period from mid-December to late-January.

Cost of viagra At first blush, cost of viagra it appears that Tortorella is going to insert Matt Gilroy into the lineup because the Rangers sent Kris Newbury back to the Connecticut (AHL). Cost of viagra It is unsure if the Rangers will go with 11 forwards and seven defensemen or if Gilroy will skate a regular shift at wing.

Cost of viagra The Rangers would be doing Gilroy a disservice, cost of viagra and taking a bit of gamble giving regular (or even semi-regular) ice time to someone whose NHL experience at wing can be added up on one hand.

Cost of viagra One has to wonder if the Rangers are looking at Gilroy as a temporary replacement as they sort out their options. Cost of viagra They might not want to commit to a “permanent” replacement until they see who their playoff matchup is. Cost of viagra Of course, cost of viagra they do run the risk of putting the cart before the horse if they are unable to chip away the three points that separate them from a playoff spot.

Cost of viagra Looming in the background is the potential return of the captain, cost of viagra Chris Drury who has been nursing a knee injury since February 3. Cost of viagra According to Andrew Gross, cost of viagra Drury will return to full practice with the team. Cost of viagra It is possible that the Rangers might be using Gilroy as a place holder until Drury can get a few practices under his belt.

Cost of viagra I know some fans are rolling their eyes at the thought of Drury returning to the lineup, cost of viagra but he fill in on the penalty killing unit and would provide some help on faceoffs. Cost of viagra Unfortunately, cost of viagra Drury does not provide the offense or physical play that Callahan does. Cost of viagra

Cost of viagra If the Rangers wanted to look towards a more physical player, cost of viagra they could turn to Newbury or rookie Dale Weise. Cost of viagra Newbury might be the better choice because he has more experience than Weise and does provide the Rangers with another option on faceoffs.

Cost of viagra Unfortunately, cost of viagra the Rangers do not have anyone in the system who can match Callahan’s offense. Cost of viagra While Mats Zuccarello has the potential to be a 20+ goal scorer in the NHL, cost of viagra he seems to have hit a wall in his rookie season in the NHL. Cost of viagra The one thing that might have gotten him some ice time would have been his ability to play the point on the power play, cost of viagra but MZA has proven to be too inconsistent. Cost of viagra In that case, cost of viagra the Blueshirts would be better off with Gilroy in the lineup as a seventh defenseman/power play specialist.

Cost of viagra Given that there is no “perfect” replacement for Callahan, cost of viagra if Drury is able to play then he should get the chance. Cost of viagra For better or worse, cost of viagra he might be the best option as he lends experience to a young team, cost of viagra can kill penalties, cost of viagra and win faceoffs. Cost of viagra Perhaps he will harken back to his Buffalo Sabres days and score a crucial goal with seven seconds left in the game.

Cost of viagra The best thing for the Rangers would be for the Detroit Red Wings to give their Original Six brother a hand by beating the Hurricanes in Carolina in regulation time – thus shaving the magic number to one. Cost of viagra While the Red Wings have clinched their division, cost of viagra they currently sit third in the Western Conference one point behind the San Jose Sharks. Cost of viagra Hopefully, cost of viagra playoff positioning is important in Motown.

Cost of viagra In the mean time, cost of viagra Tortorella is going to have to rework his lines no matter who is going to replace Callahan in the lineup. Cost of viagra You have to figure that he will keep Vinny Prospal, cost of viagra Derek Stepan and Wojtech Wolski together and insert Marian Gaborik on the RW with Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov. Cost of viagra As long as Ruslan Fedotenko is able to stay healthy (his questionable health was the reason Newbury was recalled in the first place), cost of viagra the Bulldog Line 3.0 (Fedotenko, cost of viagra Brian Boyle and Brandon Prust) is a given. Cost of viagra That leaves Sean Avery and Erik Christensen to team up with (insert the player of your choice).

Cost of viagra Following the Boston victory, cost of viagra Tortorella summed up his team this way in a response to a question from Rick Carpiniello.

Cost of viagra ”We’re not a terribly gifted hockey club. Cost of viagra But they find a way. Cost of viagra They find a way. Cost of viagra I’m … you know … I’m not a big lovefest guy here, cost of viagra but I like, cost of viagra I just like how we stuck to it, cost of viagra and we showed balls. Cost of viagra It was really good stuff.”

Cost of viagra With their heart and soul out of the lineup indefinitely, cost of viagra the Rangers are going to get a chance to show just how big those balls are.
