April 2012


Female viagra uk The stars were all aligned for a Game 1 letdown. Female viagra uk The Rangers watched as the Capitals tied the game with 3.5 seconds left in the first period. Female viagra uk The Blueshirts were battling the mental and physical fatigue of a quick turnaround after eliminating the Ottawa Senators less than 48 hours ago. Female viagra uk Past Ranger teams would have folded under such pressure, female viagra uk but not the 2011-2012 version of the New York Rangers.

Female viagra uk “That could have hurt us big time, female viagra uk but we came in here, female viagra uk regrouped, female viagra uk talked about staying patient and just let the game come to us, female viagra uk” Henrik Lundqvist explained to Ira Podell of the AP. Female viagra uk “Coming from that Game 7, female viagra uk such an emotional and big win, female viagra uk it was important for us to regroup and start all over. Female viagra uk This team doesn’t give up much so we have to be smart with pucks. Female viagra uk They kind of wait for mistakes, female viagra uk so the key for us is not to make too many.”

Female viagra uk According to Rick Carpiniello of the Journal News, female viagra uk the victory was Lundqvist’s 20th as a Ranger, female viagra uk third behind Mike Richter (41) and Eddie Giacomin.

Female viagra uk As expected, female viagra uk the two teams were mirror images of each other as the Capitals managed 18 shots to the Rangers 14 and both teams were credited with 15 blocked shots.

Female viagra uk The Rangers battle back against adversity received a big boost from an ill-timed line change by defenseman Mike Green and an absolute “goal scorer’s goal” as Dan Girardi would say from Chris Kreider. Female viagra uk The rookie from Boston College not earned the Broadway hat, female viagra uk but he is earning more and more ice time and responsibility from his coach.
“All the players dictate their own ice time [based] on how they play. Female viagra uk What he’s getting he deserves, female viagra uk” Coach John Tortorella said about Kreider.

Female viagra uk ”We just want his instinctiveness and his speed. Female viagra uk We just want him to go out and play. Female viagra uk Forget about what he is doing on the ice. Female viagra uk The mental part of the game, female viagra uk as far as him trying to make a difference every shift, female viagra uk is real good stuff for a young kid.”

Female viagra uk The Rangers managed to put thoughts of fatigue by getting off to a quick start. Female viagra uk The Blueshirts looked to use long indirect passes to beat the Capitals forecheck and trap. Female viagra uk As the first period wore on, female viagra uk Washington finally got their skates under them.

Female viagra uk The game would see its first turning point early in the second period when the Rangers killed off a pair of Caps power plays that included a two-man advantage for 34 seconds.

Female viagra uk Less than three minutes later, female viagra uk the Garden crowd experienced a déjà vu moment when Artem Anisimov fought off and outmuscled Green and channeled his inner Stephane Matteau as his wraparound attempt from behind the net beat Braden Holtby for the game’s first goal.

Female viagra uk After seeming to not get any breaks during the Ottawa series, female viagra uk the Rangers caught one when Marcus Johansson’s “goal” was disallowed as the referee blew the play dead as Johansson knocked the puck and Lundqvist into the net. Female viagra uk It appeared that Anton Stralman tripped up Johansson, female viagra uk but the goal was waved off and Stralman escaped a trip to the penalty box.

Female viagra uk Unlike points during the Ottawa series, female viagra uk the Rangers were not content to sit on their lead – which for once – turned out to be a mistake. Female viagra uk After watching Brad Richards walk in and pass on a shot in the final minute, female viagra uk the Capitals knotted the game as Brooks Laich found Jason Chimera for the redirect – the same Jason Chimera who won Game 4 last year with his goal in double overtime.

Female viagra uk The fact that the Rangers did not wilt under the adversity of giving up a tying goal in the final seconds of the second period shows that they are a special team and could be positioned to make a long run in the playoffs.

Female viagra uk “I just like the way we rebounded after getting scored on at the end of the period, female viagra uk” Tortorella said. Female viagra uk “We kept within ourselves, female viagra uk just played our game, female viagra uk and found a way to score a couple of goals in the third.”

Female viagra uk It is still very early in this series, female viagra uk but the Capitals might rue their inability to take advantage of the Rangers gift at the end of the second period. Female viagra uk Curiously, female viagra uk there was a feeling among the Capitals that questioned that inability.

Female viagra uk Stephen Whyno of the Washington Times wrote, female viagra uk “Jason Chimera and other decried the Caps’ lack of effort to match the Rangers intensity. Female viagra uk That’s tough to get a grip on considering New York just polished off the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night.”

Female viagra uk One has to wonder if Coach Dale Hunter’s new defensive philosophy might have taken something out of the Caps’ mystique. Female viagra uk Washington pulled a 180 degree turn in style of play from offensive to defensive, female viagra uk rather than add a defensive component to their offensive style of play.

Female viagra uk While it served them during the regular season as they went 30-23-7 under Hunter since he took over on November 28, female viagra uk it remains to be debate if the Caps change in play was too drastic a change.

Female viagra uk The one thing that can’t be debated was the impact Chris Kreider had on the third period. Female viagra uk In addition to scoring his second goal of the playoffs, female viagra uk which is also his second game-winning goal of the playoffs, female viagra uk he helped set up the Rangers insurance goal just 90 second after giving the Rangers the lead for good.

Female viagra uk It was Kreider’s work along the left wing boards that allowed Richards to pick up a loose puck and patiently outwait Holtby to ice the game with his third playoff goal.

Female viagra uk Right wing Troy Brouwer pretty much summed up the Capitals Game 1 frustrations.

Female viagra uk “They’re a good defensive team and when we had guys jump up in the play and we turned it over, female viagra uk then they had guys going the other way, female viagra uk” he related to Whyno.

Female viagra uk “Then they were able to get the puck in our zone and cycle it around. Female viagra uk Sometimes, female viagra uk when you’re taking chances, female viagra uk it’s going to bite you.”

Female viagra uk Katie Carrera of the Washington Post pointed out a very interesting, female viagra uk and telling, female viagra uk statistic from Game 1. Female viagra uk The Capitals trailed for 20:18 on Saturday afternoon. Female viagra uk In the Boston series, female viagra uk Washington only trailed the Bruins for 24:23 during the entire seven games.

Female viagra uk Washington might have lost the first battle, female viagra uk but it doesn’t necessarily mean they will lose the war. Female viagra uk Seven times the Capitals have the lost the first game of a seven-game playoff series and six times they have come back to win the series – including their 1990 Divisional Finals matchup against the Rangers. Female viagra uk After dropping the first game of that series 7-3, female viagra uk Washington won the next four games (the last two in overtime) by a combined score of 19-8; and their 2009 seven-game series victory against the Rangers after spotting the Blueshirts a three games to one lead.

Female viagra uk On the plus side for the Rangers, female viagra uk they have a 31-11 series record when winning Game 1.

Truth about cialis It is fitting that the New York Rangers and the Washington Capitals are meeting in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Truth about cialis Both teams each survived a tight checking opening series that went seven games. Truth about cialis In terms of style of play, truth about cialis one could say that the Rangers and Caps are mirror images of each other.

Truth about cialis Katie Carrera of the Washington Post described the series as “… a team-defense, truth about cialis shot-blocking palooza. Truth about cialis Washington demonstrated its ability to sacrifice the body and absorb shots from the Bruins, truth about cialis finishing with 139 blocks through seven games.”

Truth about cialis The Rangers, truth about cialis the NHL playoff leaders, truth about cialis were credited with 155 shots blocked against the Senators. Truth about cialis

Truth about cialis “By being an ex-player I know what it takes, truth about cialis what the players are going through over there, truth about cialis they get to blocking shots and taking big hits, truth about cialis they’re sacrificing, truth about cialis” Coach Dale Hunter explained to Stephen Whyno of the Washington Times. Truth about cialis “So for players, truth about cialis I think it’s one of those things when you win big games like this it’s because they sacrificed and they did [Wednesday night] and through the whole series.”

Truth about cialis Whyno offered up his take on how Hunter’s system differs from former coach Bruce Boudreau’s defensive system.
“It’s a departure from years past, truth about cialis even last season, truth about cialis when former coach Bruce Boudreau tried to tighten things up and play a more trapping game. Truth about cialis This is a real 1-3-1 neutral zone trap that forces opponents to think more about where they’re putting the puck and takes advantage of mistakes, truth about cialis” Whyno wrote.

Truth about cialis There are two main differences between the teams. Truth about cialis First off, truth about cialis the Capitals have more potential offensive weapons with the Big Four of Alexander Ovechkin, truth about cialis Nicklas Backstrom, truth about cialis Alexander Semin and Mike Green.

Truth about cialis The second difference would normally be a major deciding factor in who will win the series. Truth about cialis The Rangers are led by veteran goaltender Henrik Lundqvist while Washington is relying on rookie Braden Holtby. Truth about cialis Normally, truth about cialis that would a big edge to the Rangers, truth about cialis but recent history says that is not the case.

Truth about cialis The Capitals have eliminated the Rangers the last two times the teams met in the playoffs with rookie goalies leading the way. Truth about cialis In 2009, truth about cialis it was Semyon Varlamov relieving an ineffective Jose Theodore in Washington’s seven game series win. Truth about cialis Last year, truth about cialis it was rookie Michal Neuvirth instead of Varlamov pacing the Caps to a five game series win. Truth about cialis Will the third time be the charm for the Rangers?

Truth about cialis As one might expect, truth about cialis John Tortorella puts no credence in the 2009 and 2011 playoff matchups.
“It doesn’t even come into the equation as far as what we have done before. Truth about cialis This is another series, truth about cialis” the coach said.

Truth about cialis Holtby’s stats during the Bruins series (2.00 goals against average and .940 save percentage) are nearly identical to those of The King (1.70 goals against average and a .945 save percentage).

Truth about cialis Holtby defeated the Rangers on the final day of the regular season stopping 26 of the 27 Blueshirt shots in a game that saw the Rangers spot the Caps a 4-0 lead. Truth about cialis It was also one of the few games that the Rangers did not seem to have the whole heart in as the reverted to cruise control rather than chase after the President’s Trophy.

Truth about cialis The team split their four regular season games with each team winning once at home and once on the road. Truth about cialis The Rangers limited the Capitals to just 89 shots in the four games while firing 109 shots of their own. Truth about cialis The Rangers defeated Neuvirth twice while losing to Holtby and Tomas Vokoun, truth about cialis who is out indefinitely with a strained groin.

Truth about cialis For the Rangers, truth about cialis Lundqvist won two of three games he played with Martin Biron getting tagged with a 4-1 loss at Washington on December 28.

Truth about cialis The one disconcerting fact to consider is that the Rangers only faced the Caps Big Four once during the regular season, truth about cialis the 4-1 loss on April 7. Truth about cialis Mike Green missed each of the first three games due to injury. Truth about cialis As a result, truth about cialis the Caps Big Four became the Big Five with the emergence of John Carlson in the series. Truth about cialis In the four games, truth about cialis Carlson scored three goals and three assists – tying him with Backstrom for the team lead (2-4-6).

Truth about cialis Rounding out the Big Four, truth about cialis Ovechkin tallied a goal and two assists while Semin had three goals.

Truth about cialis For the Rangers, truth about cialis Ryan Callahan was the Rangers leading scorer in the series (1-4-5). Truth about cialis Brandon Dubinsky was second with four points (1-3-4) and Brian Boyle (2-1-3) and Brad Richards (1-2-3) followed with three points each.

Truth about cialis The Rangers received good news at Friday’s practice as Boyle returned to the ice; however, truth about cialis his status is still uncertain depending on how he bounces back from practice. Truth about cialis

Truth about cialis Dubinsky did not practice today and is listed as day-to-day as a resul.t of a lower body injury (thought to be an ankle or knee injury). Truth about cialis Dubi missed nearly the final 12 minutes of Game 7.

Truth about cialis If Boyle and Dubinsky can’t go, truth about cialis one would expect the Rangers to recall a forward from Connecticut – possibly Kris Newbury who would fill in on the fourth line with Artem Anisimov stepping up to the third line – as he did Thursday night.

Truth about cialis Following practice, truth about cialis Tortorella offered matching “no comment” responses when asked for updates on Boyle and Dubinsky.

Truth about cialis While most fans are questioning the NHL’s decision to make the Rangers play just 41 hours after finishing off the Ottawa Senators, truth about cialis Tortorella not only refused to join the chorus but he takes the opposite view.
“No, truth about cialis in fact I would rather have it this way, truth about cialis” Tortorella responded to a question about the quick turnaround. Truth about cialis “I think when you play a Game 7, truth about cialis and you start another series, truth about cialis if you wait a couple of more days, truth about cialis I think there even could be a letdown.”

Truth about cialis “I like the quick turnaround in this type of situation.”

Truth about cialis While the coach might not see any problems, truth about cialis I believe the Rangers need to get off to a quick start in Game 1 in order to give themselves some breathing room after the initial shot of adrenaline wears off.
In addition, truth about cialis a quick start takes some of the pressure off of facing the red-hot Holtby and it might help make the rookie goaltender realize that he is just a mere mortal.

Truth about cialis So how do the Rangers accomplish this goal? I hate to go back to my Game 6 article, truth about cialis but they must play “their game”. Truth about cialis They need to carry over the positives from the Ottawa series.

Truth about cialis That means they need to forecheck hard and puts pressure, truth about cialis and bodies, truth about cialis on Carlson and Green early and often.
It means the Rangers’ forwards need to use their speed, truth about cialis especially Marian Gaborik, truth about cialis Carl Hagelin and Chris Kreider, truth about cialis to force the Capitals defense to back up. Truth about cialis That will enable the Rangers to activate their defense to get more involved in the offense – as they did in Game 7 – a strategy that Jamie McLennan of the NHL Network praised the Rangers for doing against the Senators.

Truth about cialis Conversely, truth about cialis the Rangers must pay more attention to Washington’s point men in this series. Truth about cialis The Rangers might have to sacrifice some of their shot-blocking in order to better control their defensive blue line. Truth about cialis Also, truth about cialis they have to be better at clearing the puck during battles near the blue line because the Capitals have the offensive talent that can make a team pay for such a mistake.

Truth about cialis While the Capitals have playoff history on their side by winning three of the five playoff series the teams have played, truth about cialis they are facing a mighty tall task for a seventh seed.

Truth about cialis According to an article by Neil Greenberg of the Washington Post, truth about cialis 15 seven seeds pulled off first round upsets. Truth about cialis Of those 15 teams, truth about cialis 11 of them lost in the next round and the remaining four lost in the Stanley Cup Finals.

Truth about cialis I see the Rangers-Capitals series being as tight as the team’s first round matchups were. Truth about cialis As with the Rangers-senators series, truth about cialis I see the Blueshirts prevailing in a seven-game war as home ice advantage will payoff in another Game 7 victory.

Buy cialis canada The late Jim Valvano willed his North Carolina State Wolfpack to their improbable run at their second NCAA championship in 1983 by reinforcing the point of keeping games close enough to win so that they could ultimately “survive and advance”.

Buy cialis canada The Rangers offered up the ultimate homage to Valvano’s “survive and advance” mantra throughout the seven game series with the Ottawa Senators. Buy cialis canada By doing so, buy cialis canada they set themselves up for a rematch with the Washington Capitals.

Buy cialis canada Prior to the game, buy cialis canada Coach John Tortorella explained to Sam Rosen his vision of what would be the deciding factor in the game.

Buy cialis canada “The discipline of the game, buy cialis canada handling the momentum surges that are so pronounced in a Game 7 and, buy cialis canada just like the other night, buy cialis canada [making] big play at key times, buy cialis canada” Tortorella offered.

Buy cialis canada “Whoever is more consistent in those areas is going to win the hockey game.”

Buy cialis canada I have to admit that I was surprised at the wide-open fast paced action at the start of the game. Buy cialis canada More often than not, buy cialis canada teams involved in a Game 7 tend to sit back and wait for the other team to make the first mistake.

Buy cialis canada The first momentum surge occurred after the Senators first power play. Buy cialis canada The Rangers were pinned in their own zone in the closing minutes of the first period by the same thing that always causes them to get pinned into their own zone – the Rangers style of play.

Buy cialis canada The Blueshirts have had major success this season by blocking shots and having their forwards collapse down low – thus clogging the shooting lanes. Buy cialis canada As a result, buy cialis canada teams are forced to the outside and fall into the trap of over-passing, buy cialis canada something Ottawa was definitely guilty of during the game and the series.

Buy cialis canada With that said the Rangers shot-blocking ability definitely played mind games with the Senators.

Buy cialis canada “It’s like playing against six goalies, buy cialis canada” Nick Foligno admitted to Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen.

Buy cialis canada However, buy cialis canada this style of play is double-edged sword. Buy cialis canada By dropping the forwards down below the tops of the faceoff circles to clog the shooting lanes, buy cialis canada the Rangers leave the point men wide open. Buy cialis canada It offers the opponent a free passing lane back to the defensemen. Buy cialis canada

Buy cialis canada The result then becomes a Rangers team that starts running around in their own end trying to chase the puck all over the ice. Buy cialis canada The Senators further complicated the Rangers defensive scheme by splitting their defensemen as wide as possible – thus forcing the Rangers’ forwards to cover even more ice.

Buy cialis canada After watching Ottawa launch nine consecutive shots at the first period and into the second period, buy cialis canada the Rangers were finally able to surge momentum their way thanks to Chris Kreider’s play in the neutral zone that led to Marc Staal’s goal to open the scoring.

Buy cialis canada Looking back at this series, buy cialis canada the biggest turning point might have been in Game 2 when Carl Hagelin took the five-minute major that led to his three-game suspension. Buy cialis canada Without that suspension, buy cialis canada Kreider might not have seen the ice until Brian Boyle’s injury.

Buy cialis canada After seeing limited ice time at the start, buy cialis canada Kreider has made himself into an integral part of the Rangers playoff run – seeing the fourth highest TOI of all of the Rangers forwards.

Buy cialis canada “[Kreider] has no fear …. Buy cialis canada He’s not here trying to test the water, buy cialis canada he’s trying to make a difference, buy cialis canada” Tortorella said in the post-game press conference.

Buy cialis canada “To have some kids do the things they did here in this type of situation, buy cialis canada in their first whack at it, buy cialis canada is promising.”

Buy cialis canada I don’t want to put the cart before the horse, buy cialis canada but I have been wracking my brains (or what is left of them) trying to come up with the last player to go directly from winning an NCAA championship to winning a Stanley Cup in the same year.

Buy cialis canada I guess we can end all of the Rick Nash talk for the time being.

Buy cialis canada Prior to Game 7, buy cialis canada both teams stressed the need for them to “play their game”. Buy cialis canada It was an uncharacteristic error on Ottawa’s part that paved the way for Dan Girardi’s eventual game-winning goal.

Buy cialis canada After Ottawa was unable to keep the puck in at the right point, buy cialis canada the Blueshirts took off on a counterattack that ended up being a five-on-three rush because the Senators big players came up with a small backchecking/defensive effort.

Buy cialis canada You had to love Girardi’s take on his first playoff goal. Buy cialis canada “This is a goal scorer’s goal, buy cialis canada” he told Stan Fischler as the bluelinerhad his tongue firmly planted in his cheek.

Buy cialis canada For as team that relies so heavily on a defensive presence, buy cialis canada it is fitting that two goal scorers were defensemen who made All-Star Game appearances based on the standout defensive play, buy cialis canada not their flashy offensive ability.

Buy cialis canada The Rangers maintained the momentum until the Senator everyone loves to hate, buy cialis canada Chris Neil, buy cialis canada drew a retaliatory penalty against Michael Del Zotto – leading up to Daniel Alfredsson’s power play goal. Buy cialis canada Much like Girardi’s goal was the result of an uncharacteristic play on Ottawa’s part, buy cialis canada Ottawa’s lone goal game on a similar play on the Rangers part.

Buy cialis canada Henrik Lundqvist often has to battle through screens from his own players because of the Blueshirts shot-blocking abilities. Buy cialis canada However, buy cialis canada on Alfredsson’s goal, buy cialis canada Anton Stralman got caught in a no-man’s land. Buy cialis canada He was screening Lundqvist and rather than go for the blocked shot, buy cialis canada he turned slightly at the last second – thus creating enough room and enough of a screen to beat The King.

Buy cialis canada It would also be the last time the Senators would beat The King, buy cialis canada although Milan Michalek had a couple of golden chances that Lundqvist turned aside in the third period.

Buy cialis canada The biggest part of Game 7 might have been the Rangers ability to weather the storm in the second period with a lead. Buy cialis canada In Game 4, buy cialis canada the Rangers were unable to protect a 2-0 second period lead.

Buy cialis canada During the third period, buy cialis canada Joe Micheletti made an excellent point about the Rangers needing to make plays in their own about 10 feet inside the blue line because the Ottawa defense was pinching at every chance they had, buy cialis canada and that was helped out because of the free reign they had with the Rangers forwards dropping down low.

Buy cialis canada While most fans are only going to remember the way the Rangers struggled to hang on down the stretch of the game, buy cialis canada it was not necessarily a case of the Rangers merely bunkering down. Buy cialis canada Ottawa was credited with but four shots on goal through the first 13 minutes of the third period before finishing the prior with a total of nine shots.

Buy cialis canada “We defended our assess off in the third period, buy cialis canada” Tortorella told the reporters. Buy cialis canada “I thought both teams went toe-to-toe in all areas of the game. Buy cialis canada Sometimes the first round is the hardest round.”

Buy cialis canada By being down three games to two, buy cialis canada the Rangers made things unnecessarily hard on themselves. Buy cialis canada Then again, buy cialis canada when have the Rangers not taken the hard way?

Buy cialis canada “I really felt we were going to go into Ottawa and win, buy cialis canada” Tortorella said. Buy cialis canada “And I’m not saying that because we did it. Buy cialis canada I told our guys that have followed our club all year long that this is a good group and they’ve been resilient all year long. Buy cialis canada This sets you up for a foundation. Buy cialis canada Things happen for a reason. Buy cialis canada We’ll lean on this as we get to the next round and it’ll work to our advantage.”

Buy cialis canada Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun probably summed the series best in his lead sentence, buy cialis canada “The Senators played their hearts out, buy cialis canada only to have them broken by the New York Rangers.” A break here or a break there and you could have switched the two teams in that sentence.

Viagra free trial pack “Play Your Game. Viagra free trial pack Play Your Game.” That was the mantra that Herb Brooks repeated over and over during the USA’s Miracle on Ice matchup versus the Soviet Union in 1980.

Viagra free trial pack It is also the mantra the New York rangers must adhere to if they are going beat the 2012 playoff odds and defeat the Ottawa Senators and set up a rematch with the Washington Capitals. Viagra free trial pack Home teams are just 16-29, viagra free trial pack including the Capitals Game 7 victory at Boston.

Viagra free trial pack Despite the losing records for home teams, viagra free trial pack there is still an aura to hosting a seventh and deciding game at home.

Viagra free trial pack “In my experience, viagra free trial pack to get the last game before your fans, viagra free trial pack it’s a comfort zone, viagra free trial pack” Brad Richards explained to Newsday’s Steve Zipay. Viagra free trial pack

Viagra free trial pack “We’ve talked, viagra free trial pack and it’s been about how we’re going to enjoy something that not a lot of people get to do. Viagra free trial pack It’s not the Stanley Cup or the finals, viagra free trial pack but Game 7s are something you don’t forget. Viagra free trial pack It’s a great opportunity for everybody to step up . Viagra free trial pack . Viagra free trial pack . Viagra free trial pack You just go with it.”

Viagra free trial pack Much like Game 4 saw the end of one streak (Ottawa’s seven game home playoff losing streak) and continuation of another (Rangers’ seventh straight overtime loss in the playoffs), viagra free trial pack the teams will suffer a similar fate following Game 7.

Viagra free trial pack The Senators have lost all four seventh and deciding games they have played while the Rangers are 3-5, viagra free trial pack with all three wins coming at Madison Square Garden (1992 against New Jersey and 1994 against the Devils and Vancouver).

Viagra free trial pack “Play Your Game. Viagra free trial pack Play Your Game.”

Viagra free trial pack Senators forwards Nick Foligno pretty much summed up both teams mentality while discussing Game 7 with Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun.

Viagra free trial pack “It’s do or die. Viagra free trial pack Everybody understands the mentality. Viagra free trial pack We don’t think we have to change a lot. Viagra free trial pack We know that we’ve played really well to this point in the series and we have to keep our emotions in check, viagra free trial pack” Foligno explained to Garrioch.

Viagra free trial pack “We just have to concern ourselves with the way we play and I’m sure we’re going to do really well. Viagra free trial pack We just have to play our game. Viagra free trial pack If we keep our focus, viagra free trial pack we’re a really good team and we’re a really dangerous team.”

Viagra free trial pack Foligno was not the only Senator who commented on a game plan that fits both teams.

Viagra free trial pack “We have to stay aggressive, viagra free trial pack” Captain Daniel Alfredsson told Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen. Viagra free trial pack “We’ve done a good job of pushing the pace a little more, viagra free trial pack getting more pressure in their end and not giving them much time breaking out.”

Viagra free trial pack “Play Your Game. Viagra free trial pack Play Your Game.”

Viagra free trial pack The Rangers must come out and not allow the Senators any room to breathe. Viagra free trial pack While the Blueshirts did “explode” for three goals in staving off elimination in Game 6, viagra free trial pack winning and advancing to the next round is going to be based on their ability limit Ottawa’s chances.

Viagra free trial pack They must find a way to plow the ice so that Henrik Lundqvist can the Senators shots. Viagra free trial pack At the same time, viagra free trial pack the Rangers need to crowd Craig Anderson and get him moving laterally in his crease.

Viagra free trial pack The Blueshirts must continue to hound Norris Trophy nominee Erik Karlsson and limit his ability to freewheel and carry the puck. Viagra free trial pack The Rangers have to be very aggressive on their forecheck from the opening faceoff while, viagra free trial pack at the same time, viagra free trial pack make sure that they not get caught in too many odd-man rushes. Viagra free trial pack

Viagra free trial pack In other words, viagra free trial pack the Rangers need to keep a third forward high.

Viagra free trial pack With the series down to a one game “do-or-die” scenario, viagra free trial pack the Rangers ability to pin Ottawa in their own end while eliminating Ottawa’s effectiveness on the forecheck will go a long way to swaying momentum in their favor – and thus keeping the Garden crowd loud and proud. Viagra free trial pack

Viagra free trial pack “To be able to feed off the fans Thursday will be amazing. Viagra free trial pack But you’ve got to take the emotion and adrenaline and channel it in the right direction: not letting it boil over and taking a bad penalty or trying to make too special of a play because you get too excited, viagra free trial pack” Brandon Dubinsky told Zipay.

Viagra free trial pack “And with all the momentum swings, viagra free trial pack especially in a Game 7, viagra free trial pack if you have it, viagra free trial pack you have to try to sustain it as long as you can, viagra free trial pack or grab it back as quick as you can.”

Viagra free trial pack “Play Your Game. Viagra free trial pack Play Your Game.”

Viagra free trial pack The Rangers must skate that fine balance between playing with urgency, viagra free trial pack keeping the right emotional balance while maintaining their disciplined play. Viagra free trial pack In other words, viagra free trial pack the Rangers have to play the way did in the regular season on their way to securing the top spot in the Eastern Conference – thus assuring Game at MSG.

Viagra free trial pack While much was made earlier in the series of the Rangers lack of playoff experience as compared to Ottawa, viagra free trial pack the Blueshirts do have some grizzled veterans of the Game 7 wars.

Viagra free trial pack Marian Gaborik’s Minnesota Wild twice rallied from 3-1 deficits in the first two rounds to defeat Colorado and Vancouver in 2003.

Viagra free trial pack The 41-goal scorer realizes the need for him to be a difference maker in Game 7.

Viagra free trial pack “I know there is pressure on me to score because I put it on myself every game, viagra free trial pack just the way I have since day one when I started in the league when I was 18, viagra free trial pack” Gaborik admitted to Larry Brooks of the NY Post.

Viagra free trial pack “It’s important for me to do the things that away from the puck that are necessary for me to be in position to score, viagra free trial pack but I am going into this game with the purpose of making a difference, viagra free trial pack and the best way for me to do that is to score.”

Viagra free trial pack Richards and Ruslan Fedotenko can speak, viagra free trial pack not only to winning the Stanley Cup in a seventh and deciding game, viagra free trial pack but they can relate to being on a team that was facing elimination in Game 6.

Viagra free trial pack John Tortorella’s Tampa Bay Lightning defeated the Calgary Flames 3-2 (does that score sound familiar) to force a Game 7 showdown for the Cup. Viagra free trial pack Fedotenko (who as Andrew Gross of The Record pointed out is 4-0 in Game 7s) scored both goals in the Lightning 2-1 Cup clinching game.
Speaking of Game 7 cup clinching goals, viagra free trial pack Mike Rupp did the honors when the Devils defeated the Anaheim Ducks in 2003 – the same Ducks team that swept Gaborik’s Wild out of the playoffs.

Viagra free trial pack Gross also points out a few other Rangers can address the feelings at being on the losing end of a seventh and deciding game. Viagra free trial pack

Viagra free trial pack Dubinsky, viagra free trial pack Artem Anisimov, viagra free trial pack Ryan Callahan, viagra free trial pack Dan Girardi, viagra free trial pack Henrik Lundqvist and Marc Staal were members of the 2009 Rangers that lost Game 7 to the Capitals 2-1 as Sergei Fedorov scored with 4:59 left in regulation. Viagra free trial pack Incredibly, viagra free trial pack that was Anisimov’s first NHL game so he can provide a unique point of view for Chris Kreider.

Viagra free trial pack While Game 7 often comes down to a hero no one expected (Stephane Matteau in 1994 and Joel Ward against the Bruins), viagra free trial pack Coach Tortorella is expecting his best players to shine through.

Viagra free trial pack Prior to Game 6 Tortorella was asked about the loss of Brian Boyle. Viagra free trial pack While addressing that question, viagra free trial pack the coach put the onus on his star players.

Viagra free trial pack “Well, viagra free trial pack quite honestly, viagra free trial pack Brian has been our best player [and] Brian’s been the best forward the last two years in the playoffs … but that can’t be with our club, viagra free trial pack” Tortorella opined. Viagra free trial pack Our guys that are supposed to make a difference need to make a difference.”

Viagra free trial pack Given the way this series has been played, viagra free trial pack it would come to no surprise if we see our third overtime game of the series. Viagra free trial pack If that is the case, viagra free trial pack look for what I call the “five-minute rule” to be in place. Viagra free trial pack I am of the belief that if a playoff game is not settled in the first five minutes, viagra free trial pack the game is destined for at least double overtime.

Viagra free trial pack Of the 15 overtime games so far in the 2012 playoffs, viagra free trial pack only four of them did not fall under that rule – and one of those exceptions was Travis Zajac’s goal in Game 6 that came at 5:39 of overtime. Viagra free trial pack The other three games were the first three games of the Phoenix-Chicago series which defied logic as the first five games all went in overtime.

Viagra free trial pack Looking ahead to Game 7, viagra free trial pack the Rangers must break Game 7 into five-minute segments and make sure they win or draw each segment. Viagra free trial pack They must fight shift-by-shift, viagra free trial pack period-by-period. Viagra free trial pack The Rangers must maintain composure and play disciplined hockey and not get suckered into retaliatory penalties.

Viagra free trial pack In the simplest terms of all, viagra free trial pack my Game 7 advice to the New York Rangers is to just “Play Your Game. Viagra free trial pack Play Your Game.”

Pfizer viagra This is why the New York Rangers fought so hard to secure the top spot in the Eastern Conference. Pfizer viagra While home ice advantage has been anything but in this series, pfizer viagra there is no other placed I want Game 7 to be played other than Madison Square Garden.

Pfizer viagra The Rangers are just 3-5 in seventh and deciding games in their history. Pfizer viagra However, pfizer viagra all three of those wins have come at the Garden: 1992 and 1994 against the New Jersey Devils and 1994 against the Vancouver Canucks.

Pfizer viagra Don LaGreca of 1050 ESPN radio brought up and interesting stat during the Michael Kay show. Pfizer viagra Prior to Game 6, pfizer viagra the Rangers scored only five goals in four games. Pfizer viagra According to LaGreca that only happened once during any four-game stretch – in mid-January when the Rangers beat Phoenix 2-1 in a shootout, pfizer viagra lost to Ottawa 3-0, pfizer viagra beat Toronto 3-0, pfizer viagra and then lost a 4-1 game to Montreal.

Pfizer viagra The Blueshirts Game 6 victory was not without its controversy, pfizer viagra horrible officiating and potential Ranger injury concern.

Pfizer viagra Andrew Gross of The (Bergen) Record wrote, pfizer viagra “The biggest concern for the Rangers might be the health of Captain Ryan Callahan. Pfizer viagra Callahan did not miss a third-period shift in playing 24:28 but he appeared to have injured his middle finger blocking Chris Phillips’ shot at 3:00 of the third period while on the ice as a penalty killer.”

Pfizer viagra “Trainer Jim Ramsey examined the finger on the bench and Callahan, pfizer viagra who was credited with six hits and three blocked shots, pfizer viagra was not available to the media after the game.”

Pfizer viagra Odds are, pfizer viagra short of amputation, pfizer viagra the Captain will be in the lineup. Pfizer viagra The question will be how effective can he be.

Pfizer viagra As for the controversy and horrible officiating, pfizer viagra where shall we start?

Pfizer viagra Both teams have reasons for being displeased with the tandem of Steve Kozari and Tim Peel – something I warned about in yesterday’s Chris Neil article.

Pfizer viagra I can understand trying to get control of the game early, pfizer viagra but to call a ticky-tack roughing call on Mike Rupp is beyond belief – especially when he is matched up with Zenon Konopka as opposed to Jason Spezza.

Pfizer viagra A couple of minutes after the Rupp penalty, pfizer viagra that jackwagon Neil gets away with tripping Brad Richards.

Pfizer viagra Ottawa fans should be upset at the goalie interference call on Nick Foligno because Dan Girardi did push him into Lundqvist. Pfizer viagra However, pfizer viagra Foligno got away with a slew foot-like trip on Lundqvist earlier in the period and the goalie interference goal on Chris Kreider was a joke because Craig Anderson turned his body into Kreider to initiate the contact.

Pfizer viagra I guess we really should start, pfizer viagra and probably end, pfizer viagra with the goal Ottawa scored in the final minute – the one that is probably going to cost Henrik Lundqvist a few fishnagels give The King’s Post-game comments.

Pfizer viagra “Oh my God, pfizer viagra it scares me, pfizer viagra” Lundqvist lamented. Pfizer viagra “When it’s such an obvious play, pfizer viagra goalie interference and a kick, pfizer viagra and they still call it a goal, pfizer viagra it scares me that someone can call that. Pfizer viagra It’s just unbelievable. Pfizer viagra It still upsets me. Pfizer viagra We have this game and they get a chance. Pfizer viagra Someone wants them back in the game, pfizer viagra obviously, pfizer viagra because there’s no other explanation.”

Pfizer viagra I really hate to give any credence to conspiracy theories, pfizer viagra but if it looks like a duck, pfizer viagra quacks like a duck, pfizer viagra then it must be Aflac.

Pfizer viagra When you factor in the Carl Hagelin suspension, pfizer viagra the lack of any disciplinary action taken by Brendan Shanahan (more on him later) on the Chris Neil hit on Brian Boyle, pfizer viagra and then you toss in the Senators second goal, pfizer viagra it gets difficult to remain neutral in the conspiracy theory debate.

Pfizer viagra Credit is due to NBC analyst Brian Hayward who jumped all over the interference portion of the sham goal. Pfizer viagra As Hayward pointed out during the game, pfizer viagra if Neil’s kicking motion causes Lundqvist’s stick to knock the puck into the net, pfizer viagra the goal must be waved off.

Pfizer viagra Taking it one step further it is hard to believe that four officials did not see what Greg Wyshynski (Yahoo’s Puck Daddy) termed “Chris Neil using Lundqvist as a Swifter” as Neil harpooned the Rangers goaltender during the scramble.

Pfizer viagra Isn’t interesting that the second Senators goal was credited to Spezza as opposed to Neil? Then again, pfizer viagra if they credited the goal to Neil they couldn’t defend the odious “inconclusive” call on Neil’s distinct kicking motion.

Pfizer viagra Why would the NHL want its biggest market out of the playoffs in favor of a small Canadian market? I am not so sure they do, pfizer viagra but there is also a groundswell to keep Canada’s lone team alive given that a Canadian team has not won the Stanley Cup since 1993.

Pfizer viagra Given the inconsistent and haphazard nature of the officiating and the rulings coming out of the NHL, pfizer viagra the Blueshirts would be wise to make sure Game 7 doesn’t come done to one play, pfizer viagra penalty call or video review.

Pfizer viagra Speaking of video reviews, pfizer viagra Brett Cyrgalis of the NY Post made an interesting observation stemming from the controversial goal.

Pfizer viagra Senators’ first-line winger Milan Michalek may be facing a suspension for Game 7 as a result of kicking Dan Girardi twice in the midsection with his skate blade, pfizer viagra” Cyrgalis writes. Pfizer viagra “The play was part of the scrum in front of Lundqvist that resulted in the second goal, pfizer viagra and Canadian television outlet CBC has numerous angles of the altercation.”

Pfizer viagra Sadly, pfizer viagra if you think any suspension is forthcoming then I still have that bridge in Brooklyn for sale.

Pfizer viagra Setting aside the shanahanigans that arose out of Game 6, pfizer viagra there were plenty of positives points. Pfizer viagra First, pfizer viagra and most importantly, pfizer viagra we saw the coming of age part for Chris Kreider. Pfizer viagra The rookie from Boston College is growing in confidence and is showing why President/GM Glen Sather refused to consider including him in any trade talks for Rick Nash.

Pfizer viagra While Derek Stepan is a “grizzled veteran” when compared to Kreider, pfizer viagra the Wisconsin Badger hit the scoresheet in a big way registering his first three playoff points of his career.

Pfizer viagra Give credit to Brandon Prust who managed to finally “goad” Neil into a fight. Pfizer viagra While Neil might have won the fight and whipped up the Scotiabank Place crowd, pfizer viagra Prust’s actions stirred on his team and did quiet Neil down for a period or so.

Pfizer viagra “Prustie does it for us all year, pfizer viagra but what he did for us tonight was unbelievable, pfizer viagra” Richards admitted to Larry Brooks of the NY Post. Pfizer viagra “We didn’t want to let him down. Pfizer viagra We talked about it [after the first period]. Pfizer viagra I love the guy.”

Pfizer viagra For his part, pfizer viagra Prust knew exactly what he was doing.

Pfizer viagra “We were down 1-0, pfizer viagra” said Prust commented to Newsday’s Steve Zipay. Pfizer viagra “Whenever I’m fighting, pfizer viagra it’s usually not for me, pfizer viagra it’s to get the guys going. Pfizer viagra I think most of it’s just trying to get the guys going, pfizer viagra to get a little spark, pfizer viagra a little jump…maybe a little bit for Boyler, pfizer viagra too.”

Pfizer viagra Speaking of Richards, pfizer viagra he stepped up his play as he orchestrated both of the Rangers power play goals while finishing second in ice time among the team’s forwards.
Brandon Dubinsky stepped up and filled in admirably for Boyle and was the best center on faceoffs – winning 52%.

Pfizer viagra Carl Hagelin showed just how much his speed was missed during the game. Pfizer viagra His second period forecheck with Ruslan Fedotenko drew the first of the two Senator penalties that lead to the five-on-three advantage.

Pfizer viagra “[Hagelin] adds speed and I think he makes everybody else play quicker, pfizer viagra” Coach John Tortorella stated prior to Game 6.

Pfizer viagra Michael Del Zotto deserves a pat on the back for hammering Neil behind the Rangers net with a little more than five minutes left in the third period. Pfizer viagra Neil stayed down long enough for play to be whistled dead.

Pfizer viagra Neil’s response. Pfizer viagra “I’m sure I will catch him with his head down, pfizer viagra” Neil confessed to Garrioch.

Pfizer viagra Overall, pfizer viagra the Rangers just played a smarter game – especially when they took the lead. Pfizer viagra Unlike previous games, pfizer viagra the Blueshirts did not try to sit on the lead. Pfizer viagra Instead, pfizer viagra they did look to add on to the lead. Pfizer viagra The only time they hunkered down was late in the third period when Ottawa finally played with the urgency that their coach Paul MacLean thought they lacked.

Pfizer viagra “I didn’t think we played very well or consistently until the last six minutes of the game, pfizer viagra” MacLean told Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun. Pfizer viagra “I’d like to see us play harder.”

Pfizer viagra As promised, pfizer viagra we now we revisit Brendan Shanahan one more time. Pfizer viagra My wife Roe was a huge fan of Shanny when he was a Ranger. Pfizer viagra One of her prized possessions was a Rangers tee shirt with his name and number on it – key word WAS. Pfizer viagra

Pfizer viagra To say she was a bit upset over his lack of disciplinary action against Chris Neil would be a major understatement. Pfizer viagra After Ottawa took the lead, pfizer viagra she got up and grabbed her Shanahan tee shirt.

Pfizer viagra As the first period continued, pfizer viagra she calmly and methodically took a pair of scissors and cut the thing into neat and measured shreds. Pfizer viagra First went the sleeves and then rest of the shirt, pfizer viagra including his name and number. Pfizer viagra The only thing she did not cut up was the “Rangers” on the front.

Pfizer viagra She then sat down and wrote him a letter expressing her displeasure over his job as NHL Director of Player Safety. Pfizer viagra She also explained that she was mailing him back his tee shirt because he does not deserve to wear it.

Pfizer viagra Okay, pfizer viagra truth be told, pfizer viagra when I am the sane Ranger fan in the house – Houston, pfizer viagra we have a problem!

Pfizer viagra As a result, pfizer viagra you can see why the Rangers have to win Game 7 and vanquish the Ottawa Senators. Pfizer viagra Not so much for Roe’s sanity, pfizer viagra but for my safety. Pfizer viagra Needless to say, pfizer viagra I will be sleeping with my goalie equipment to protect me from Lorena, pfizer viagra I mean, pfizer viagra Roe. Pfizer viagra :-)

Viagra britain I suppose that NHL Director of Player Safety Brendan Shanahan’s arms were too sore from patting himself on the back for imposing a 25-game suspension to Raffi Torres for him to issue a disciplinary hearing for Chris Neil’s hit on Brian Boyle during Game 5.

Viagra britain There really is no other reason for Neil not to face some disciplinary action because his hit on Boyle met the three basic points that Shanahan has used when suspending players this season – including the Rangers very own Carl Hagelin.

Viagra britain Despite what Neil apologists have written on the Internet, viagra britain he did target Boyle’s head as the primary point of contact, viagra britain the hit is delivered from Boyle’s blindside, viagra britain and most damaging is the player was injured as a result of the hit.

Viagra britain While we can’t always determine a player’s mindset in terms on intent (although Shanahan did in reference to the Hagelin hit), viagra britain if you think Neil wasn’t targeting Boyle then do I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you. Viagra britain It is no bit of irony that Neil drops the hammer on the same player that Matt Carkner jumped at the start of Game 2 as retaliation for Boyle’s jabs at Erik Karlsson.

Viagra britain Some have said that the fast-paced nature of the game at that point would not lend itself to Neil being able to zero in on Boyle – despite the fact that at 6-foot-7 he is the tallest player on the ice who was not on the Senators bench dressed as the backup goaltender (Ben Bishop).

Viagra britain Neil’s defenders point out that the Ottawa tough guy has never been suspended for any on-ice transgression. Viagra britain Well, viagra britain prior to his hit on Daniel Alfredsson, viagra britain neither had Hagelin. Viagra britain While we are it, viagra britain neither has Sean Avery. Viagra britain How many games do you think Avery gets if he delivers the same hit to Kyle Turris?

Viagra britain For his part, viagra britain Neil claims his hit was legal – much like he did back in February 2003 when he knocked the Buffalo Sabres co-captain Chris Drury out of game. Viagra britain Here is how Buffalo Coach described the play.

Viagra britain “It was a predator-type of hit where Chris was vulnerable, viagra britain” Ruff told CBC sports. Viagra britain “Neil went out of his way to deliver a blow to Chris’ head.

Viagra britain “It was a deliberate attempt to put somebody out.”

Viagra britain Drury suffered a concussion and missed four games, viagra britain to go along with a 20-stitch cut to his forehead that occurred when his head hit the ice.

Viagra britain So before everyone points out that Neil has never been “suspended” for this type of play, viagra britain he has been “involved” in it. Viagra britain Writers might want to ask Martin Biron about it because he was one of three players (teammate Andrew Peters and Ottawa goalie Ray Emery were the others) who were suspended as a result of the ensuing brawl that saw 110 PIMs handed out.

Viagra britain Fortunately for the Rangers, viagra britain they have a history of dealing with concussions. Viagra britain The last thing any competent organization would want to do is force a concussed player to fly after suffering his injury and then let the player on the ice less than 48 hours after suffering what is termed as a concussion.

Viagra britain You have to give Shanahan credit for one thing; he could have had a sham “hearing” where he pointed his finger at Neil while making the Ottawa winger promise never to do it again. Viagra britain

Viagra britain If he wanted to truly heartless, viagra britain he could have nailed Neil with one of his patented $2, viagra britain500 fines. Viagra britain Oops, viagra britain I forgot, viagra britain those are saved for superstar defensemen who attempt to inject a little WWE action into the NHL.

Viagra britain I know there are some who are saying that as a Rangers blogger I am biased. Viagra britain To those people I say you might be right. Viagra britain That is why I am asking for some consistency when it comes to disciplinary actions. Viagra britain Rangers Coach John Tortorella was correct when he called the play “a dangerous, viagra britain dangerous, viagra britain cheap hit”, viagra britain but he was way off base when he compared it to the one Torres delivered to Marian Hossa. Viagra britain To call for, viagra britain or even expect, viagra britain a 25-game suspension is ludicrous.

Viagra britain With that said, viagra britain there are others who have no horse in this race who are just as perplexed that Neil escaped any disciplinary actions. Viagra britain Damien Cox of the Toronto Star is one writer who finds Shanny’s actions, viagra britain or lack thereof, viagra britain quite puzzling.

Viagra britain “It seems unthinkable, viagra britain given all the circumstances, viagra britain that Shanahan would now, viagra britain after laying down the law so heavily on Torres, viagra britain permit Neil to walk away unpunished for his head shot on Boyle, viagra britain a hit that certainly appeared to break Rule 48. Viagra britain Consistency is what hockey fans seem to want, viagra britain and there can be no consistency when one player – a multiple offender – is getting 25 games for a head shot while another gets nothing for a head shot of his own. Viagra britain Yes, viagra britain Neil would at least in theory be a first time offender; then again, viagra britain so was Hagelin, viagra britain” Cox wrote on April 22, viagra britain 2012.

Viagra britain “Any reasonable person would suggest Neil should at least get one game; reports that Boyle’s head was not the principle point of contact are laughable.”

Viagra britain As to addressing the old adage that Boyle needed to keep his head, viagra britain Cox provides a telling quote from a former NHL player.

Viagra britain “Not sure how we teach our players to look at the net, viagra britain shoot the puck and then check out the danger at 45, viagra britain 90 and 180 degrees in one motion, viagra britain” Cox quotes a disgusted former NHLer this morning. Viagra britain “We cannot just say the game is hard and concussions happen. Viagra britain It’s not right.”

Viagra britain As we look ahead to Game 6, viagra britain Alfredsson and Neil will hailed as conquering heroes at the Scotiabank Place while Hagelin will sure to draw the boos usually reserved for Sidney Crosby at Madison Square Garden.

Viagra britain While Ranger fans hope that Hagelin’s return to the lineup is the tonic for the offensive malaise that his hit Marian Gaborik and Brad Richards, viagra britain it is my hope that Hagelin makes it through the game in one piece.

Viagra britain With Steve Kozari and Tim Peel set as the referees, viagra britain it might be a long night for the Blueshirt faithful.

Viagra britain We’ve already witnessed Ottawa’s thirst for frontier justice when Carkner jumped Boyle in Game 2 and then again with Neil’s predatory hit on Boyle in Game 5. Viagra britain Is there any Ranger fan out there who does not believe for one second that one of those knuckle-dragging guttersnipe Senators (i.e. Viagra britain Neil, viagra britain Carkner or Zenon Konopka) aren’t going to take runs at Hagelin?

Viagra britain And when they do, viagra britain you can bet that Shanahan will have their back much like he had Neil’s following Saturday night’s game.

Viagra original pfizer order At the start of the playoffs, viagra original pfizer order all Ranger fans would agree that for the Blueshirts to make a deep run in the Stanley Cup playoffs, viagra original pfizer order Henrik Lundqvist would have to be the best goaltender on the ice in any given game. Viagra original pfizer order While Lundqvist was good in Game 5, viagra original pfizer order Ottawa’s Craig Anderson was even better as he stopped all 41 shots he faced in posting his second career playoff shutout.

Viagra original pfizer order While the Rangers had lots of chances to get on the scoreboard, viagra original pfizer order Anderson has now stopped the last 65 shots the Rangers have taken going bacl to early in the first period of Game 4.

Viagra original pfizer order Truth be told, viagra original pfizer order Game 5 might have been the Rangers best game of the series as it came the closest to being a full 60 minute effort. Viagra original pfizer order This game should probably have been the third to go to overtime had John Mitchell not messed up his assignment on the Senators first goal.

Viagra original pfizer order Rather than stay with his man, viagra original pfizer order Jason Spezza, viagra original pfizer order Mitchell peeled off to check rookie Mark Stone (who was making his professional debut) – even though Ryan McDonagh had Stone contained. Viagra original pfizer order With Mitchell losing his check, viagra original pfizer order Spezza was home free to notch his first playoff goal in his last 19 games.

Viagra original pfizer order After being called by Coach Paul MacLean, viagra original pfizer order Spezza responded with two goals and six shots after being held without a shot in Game 4.

Viagra original pfizer order It is no coincidence that Ottawa has one the last two games as their two best players have ended up on the scoresheet – Spezza with his two goals tonight and Milan Michalek with the first goal in Game 4.

Viagra original pfizer order Conversely, viagra original pfizer order the Blueshirts are waiting for Marian Gaborik and Brad Richards to break free and score goals – something they have not done since Game 1. Viagra original pfizer order Discounting his horrendous pass/turnover that turned into Spezza’s empty net goal, viagra original pfizer order Gaborik was engaged during the game and showed some good jump and showed a willingness to play a physical game.

Viagra original pfizer order It will be interesting to see how the Chris Neil Affair will play out. Viagra original pfizer order Boyle has a concussion and is out indefinitely. Viagra original pfizer order Following the game, viagra original pfizer order Coach John Tortorella called it “dirty” and “cheap” and likened the hit tp the one Raffi Torres delivered to Marian Hossa and cost Torres as 25-game suspension. Viagra original pfizer order Let us not forget that Neil delievered a borderling knee-to-knee hit to Ruslan Fedotenko prior to Neil’s headhunting hit on Boyle. Viagra original pfizer order

Viagra original pfizer order Arthur Staple of Newsday tweeted the following quite from Neil, viagra original pfizer order “The hit was clean… When you’re cutting thru the middle with your head down, viagra original pfizer order you’ve got to expect to be hit.”

Viagra original pfizer order That would be true had Neil not cut across and led with his shoulder and nailing Boyle in the head.

Viagra original pfizer order Either way, viagra original pfizer order the ball is now in Brendan Shanahan’s court.

Viagra original pfizer order If Carl Hagelin received a three-game suspension for what was termed a “premeditated” play, viagra original pfizer order then Neil deserves the same suspension. Viagra original pfizer order Neil made Boyle’s head the primary point of contact and the hit came from the blind side – the exact two things the NHL is SUPPOSEDLY trying to legislate out of the game

Viagra original pfizer order The Rangers have shown the ability to bounce back from adversity all season long, viagra original pfizer order a point that Brandon Dubinsky ame following the game.

Viagra original pfizer order “We have to try to find a way to it the hard way, viagra original pfizer order” Dubinsky explained. Viagra original pfizer order “We can’t get ahead of ourselves. Viagra original pfizer order We have to make sure we’re focused on one 60-minute game of hockey. Viagra original pfizer order This team has been really good all year rebounding from tough hockey games like this.”

Viagra original pfizer order The road the Rangers face is not an easy one come Monday night. Viagra original pfizer order In 22 previous best-of-seven series that were tied at two games apiece, viagra original pfizer order the team that won Game 5 went on to win the series 91% of the time. Viagra original pfizer order One notable excception was the 1994 Rangers who lost Game 5 to the New Jersey Devils in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Viagra original pfizer order On the plus side for the Rangers, viagra original pfizer order they re not that far off. Viagra original pfizer order Their defense and penalty killing ar e at the top of their games. Viagra original pfizer order The Blueshirts must find a way to solve Anderson. Viagra original pfizer order During the post-game show on MSG Network, viagra original pfizer order Billy Jaffe offered an interesting take on the Rangers offensive production tonight.

Viagra original pfizer order While Jaffe did concede the Rangers did a good jon of getting some traffic in fron of the Ottawa netminder, viagra original pfizer order he noticed that most of the shots were “straight on”. Viagra original pfizer order Jaffe urged the Rangers to try and get Anderson to move more, viagra original pfizer order especoially side-to-side as they attack. Viagra original pfizer order That would open up the Rangers for more rebound opportunities and leave Anderson, viagra original pfizer order at times, viagra original pfizer order at a disadvantage positionally on the? rebounds.

Viagra original pfizer order As for the power play, viagra original pfizer order Torts needs to make them watch the first two power plays from Game 4 and them contrast them with the subsequent nine man advantages so the team can notice how they jus stopped shooting the puck. Viagra original pfizer order The Senators have become more aggressive in the penalty killing so the Rangers need to make on or two passes to get the Senators penalty killers moving and then start firing shots on goal – with as much traffic as Ottawa is throwing at Lundqvist.

Viagra original pfizer order The one part of their game that is not going to get better at any point during the playoffs is their faceoff percentage – especially now that Boyle is out of the lineup. Viagra original pfizer order What the Ranegrs need to do is work even harder on the assignments after the faceoff is lost. Viagra original pfizer order That means going as hard as possible to the point of they lose defensive zone draws, viagra original pfizer order and it means getting inhard on the forecheck if they lose offensive zone draws.

Viagra original pfizer order The Rangers can no longer view this as best-of-seven series. Viagra original pfizer order They must look at Monday’s game as the seventh and deciding game. Viagra original pfizer order whatever it takes to beat the Ottawa Senators must be done.

Viagra original pfizer order We can expect that the Hagelin, viagra original pfizer order Gaborik and Richards line will be reunited. Viagra original pfizer order If I were the coach, viagra original pfizer order I would put Chris Kreider with Brandon Dubinsky and Ryan Callahan and roll the dice that Kreider is ready to translate his collegiate success into NHL success. Viagra original pfizer order You can team Artem Anisimov, viagra original pfizer order Derek Stepan and Fedotenko as a third line with Michael Rupp, viagra original pfizer order John Mitchell and Brandon Prust as the fourth line. Viagra original pfizer order Depending on the tenor of the game, viagra original pfizer order I might flip[ Fedotenko and Prust. Viagra original pfizer order

Viagra original pfizer order I might even dress Steve Eminger for Stu Bickel looking to get a little more experience and a little more offense from the blueliners.

Viagra original pfizer order Above all, viagra original pfizer order it doesn’t matter what the lines are or what the defensive pairing are, viagra original pfizer order the bottom line is that Monday night’s game is one where the Blueshirts best players have to be their best players. Viagra original pfizer order Secondary scoring and contributions will be greatly appreciated, viagra original pfizer order but the Rangers must rely on their to find a way to bring the series back to the Garden on Thursday night.

Stores that sell viagra However, stores that sell viagra come playoff time every game takes on added importance which forces an opponent to bear down and focus and overcome the frustration and exasperation.

Stores that sell viagra At a time when they should keep their foot on the gas pedal, stores that sell viagra within moderation, stores that sell viagra they are letting up on the gas and easing the seat back.

Stores that sell viagra It was somewhat understandable in Game 2 because the Rangers were hunkering down late in the third period to defend a one-goal lead. Stores that sell viagra Game 4 was a different animal altogether because the Rangers seemed to expect two goals would be enough after Henrik Lundqvist shutout the Senators in Game 3.

Stores that sell viagra The ironic thing is the game started out about as well it possibly could for the Rangers as they capitalized on their early power play chances as they were able to win faceoffs, stores that sell viagra maintain puck possession and do something they don’t do enough on the power play – SHOOT THE PUCK!

Stores that sell viagra Just as quickly as the Rangers righted their power play, stores that sell viagra was just as fast they went back to their old ways and repeated past mistakes.

Stores that sell viagra The Rangers have been at their most effective in this series when they are able to maintain possession of the puck – an absolute muss if they want to keep the crease-crashing Sens out of Lundqvist’s way.

Stores that sell viagra The best way to accomplish those tasks is for the Rangers to ramp up their forechecking, stores that sell viagra which should increase their offensive output while slowing down Ottawa. Stores that sell viagra When the Rangers are aggressive on their forecheck, stores that sell viagra they win. Stores that sell viagra When they aren’t, stores that sell viagra they lose. Stores that sell viagra

Stores that sell viagra When you factor in shots on goal, stores that sell viagra blocked shots and shots that go wide, stores that sell viagra the Senators out-chanced the Rangers 85 to 49. Stores that sell viagra If you are wondering why the Rangers look so tired during stretches of the game, stores that sell viagra you need to look no further than that telling statistic. Stores that sell viagra It also helps explain how, stores that sell viagra after scoring four goals in Game 1, stores that sell viagra the Blueshirts have managed to score just five goals in the next three games.

Stores that sell viagra Looking forward, stores that sell viagra the Rangers have to realize that they need to play with a sense of urgency for 60 minutes, stores that sell viagra or longer, stores that sell viagra if a game happens to go into overtime.

Stores that sell viagra They also need to get more offense from their star players – especially during five-on-five play. Stores that sell viagra While Marian Gaborik and Brad Richards did rack up a pair of assists in Game 4, stores that sell viagra they are not producing enough offense in terms of goals.

Stores that sell viagra Artem Anisimov and Brandon Dubinsky must take a page out of Brian Boyle’s playbook and elevate their offensive games. Stores that sell viagra Both players have the ability to impose themselves more on the game.

Stores that sell viagra After watching the way the Senators are congregating around Lundqvist, stores that sell viagra one has to wonder if the Rangers would have been better off with Dylan McIlrath making his NHL debut in the playoffs.

Viagra success stories True poetic justice would have seen rookie Chris Kreider score the lone goal in the New York Rangers 1-0 win in Game 3 as the replacement for the suspended Carl Hagelin. Viagra success stories Well, viagra success stories the fickle finger of fate had the right school (Boston College) but the wrong eagle (Brian Boyle).

Viagra success stories While Boyle provided the game’s only offense, viagra success stories it was The King who shined brightest among the Blueshirts. Viagra success stories Henrik Lundqvist made 39 saves in posting his fourth career shutout, viagra success stories but none were bigger than the ones he made in the final minute. Viagra success stories After stopping a sharp angle shot from the left wing corner, viagra success stories Lundqvist stoned Kyle Turris in front to preserve the victory.

Viagra success stories There was some disappointment at not preserving the Game 1 shutout, viagra success stories but when you have a four goal lead in the third period it is always good to hold on to those shutouts when you really need them – like last night.

Viagra success stories Fans have come to expect that type of dominating performance from Lundqvist. Viagra success stories However, viagra success stories the same can’t be said about the roll Boyle is on. Viagra success stories After struggling for most of the season to find his offensive game, viagra success stories Boyle is as hot as any player can be – scoring eight goals in his last 12 games, viagra success stories including one each playoff game.

Viagra success stories Lundqvist is not surprised by Boyle’s run of offensive prowess.

Viagra success stories “He’s doing all the things he’s been doing all year, viagra success stories but now he’s scoring some big goals or us, viagra success stories” Lundqvist explained to Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun. Viagra success stories “And I’m not surprised. Viagra success stories He’s a really skilled player. Viagra success stories He’s been really hot in practise the last few weeks. Viagra success stories We need guys to step up right now, viagra success stories and he’s doing that.”

Viagra success stories Boyler was quick to pay back Lundqvist’s praise.

Viagra success stories “Once again, viagra success stories as has been the story all year, viagra success stories No. Viagra success stories 30 back there, viagra success stories the guy was unbelievable, viagra success stories” Boyle said to Dave Lozo of nhl.com. Viagra success stories “He was the biggest difference, viagra success stories I think.”

Viagra success stories Boyle is relishing his role as Ottawa‘s Public Enemy Number 2 (obviously, viagra success stories Hagelin takes the top spot).

Viagra success stories “If I’m the villain to them that’s good, viagra success stories” Boyle admitted to The Canadian Press. Viagra success stories “If I knew (I would score this often) I probably would have tried to do it a lot earlier. Viagra success stories It’s been fortunate bounces.”

Viagra success stories Sam Rosen and Joe Micheletti were spot on when they said that no player has stepped up their play like Boyle. Viagra success stories In a way, viagra success stories that is placing the Rangers in a Catch-22 situation. Viagra success stories On a team with the likes of Marian Gaborik, viagra success stories Brad Richards, viagra success stories and Ryan Callahan, viagra success stories your best skater can’t be Brian Boyle. Viagra success stories It is a recipe for a playoff upset.

Viagra success stories Yes, viagra success stories the Rangers do need secondary scoring – a problem they encountered throughout the season. Viagra success stories However, viagra success stories they need to see production from their primary scorers as well. Viagra success stories Of course, viagra success stories it wouldn’t hurt if a couple of secondary scorers (like Brandon Dubinsky) followed Boyle’s lead. Viagra success stories

Viagra success stories One of those potential secondary scorers could be Kreider. Viagra success stories Fresh off winning his second NCAA championship in the three years, viagra success stories the young forward did not look out of place as he is the first rookie to make his NHL debut in the playoffs since Lauri Korpikoski did so in 2008. Viagra success stories Of course, viagra success stories Korpikoski had the advantage of playing 162 AHL games before making his NHL debut.

Viagra success stories Kreider saw just over 11 minutes of ice time before giving way to Derek Stepan midway through the third period. Viagra success stories Coach John Tortorella wanted to let the youngster watch up close how the Blueshirts defended their lead.

Viagra success stories You had to wonder if it was going to be another one of those nights where the bounces were not going to go the Rangers way, viagra success stories especially after watching the puck pinball in the crease with 11 minutes left in the second period. Viagra success stories Senators’ goaltender Craig Anderson and captain Jason Spezza combined to keep the puck out of the net. Viagra success stories

Viagra success stories Did anyone else wonder if that had been a Ranger skater scrambling to keep the puck out of the net that a penalty shot would have been called?

Viagra success stories Perhaps Brendan Shanahan’s screwball logic when it comes to suspensions has me paranoid to the point of questioning every call and non-call. Viagra success stories However, viagra success stories just because I am not paranoid does not necessarily mean people aren’t out to get the Rangers .

Viagra success stories There is one glaring example that caught my attention. Viagra success stories At least three times during the game, viagra success stories I heard a referee warn the Rangers to “watch the crease” and “stay out of the blue”. Viagra success stories I never heard a referee offer the same warning to Ottawa – even after Zenon Konopka jabbed at Lundqvist. Viagra success stories It was bad enough to warrant a response from Lundqvist who went after Konopka and then complained to the referee.

Viagra success stories I know that Tortorella is persona non grata when it comes to the NHL and their “precious” officials, viagra success stories so it might be time for President/GM Glen Sather to come out of hiding and get in front of this “crease crashing” from the Senators because you can expect even more of it as the series progresses.

Viagra success stories “We ran into a hot goaltender (Monday), viagra success stories” Anderson told The Canadian Press. Viagra success stories “We just have to find a way to get more traffic and put a couple by him.”

Viagra success stories In addition to dealing with the onslaught of bodies in front of Lundqvist, viagra success stories the Rangers will need to stop being so tentative with the puck in their own end. Viagra success stories With about eight minutes or so left in the third period, viagra success stories the Rangers ran into a stretch of play where they just could not bang the puck out of the zone and were getting badly outworked along the boards.

Viagra success stories Speaking of the boards, viagra success stories the Rangers definitely want to be mindful of the lively boards and glass at Scotiabank Place. Viagra success stories More Blueshirts need to follow Daniel Girardi’s lead (as he did on the lone goal) and fire pucks towards the net with the intent of utilizing indirect passes off the boards and playing the caroms and bounces into scoring chances.

Viagra success stories Another key to Game 4 is making sure they are able to contain Erik Karlsson. Viagra success stories The Senator blueliner had 10 shots and a goal in their Game 2 win while combining for eight shots in their two losses.

Viagra success stories The Rangers have been up two games to one in a seven-game series 18 times in their history, viagra success stories posting a 13-5 series record.

Viagra success stories By the way, viagra success stories thanks to my wife Roe for coming up with the “Boyler Maker” headline. Viagra success stories Just goes to show, viagra success stories behind every good man is a better woman! :-)

Buy viagra cheap The New York Rangers sixth consecutive overtime playoff loss did not stem from any change in momentum as a result of Ottawa’s two third period goals in Game 1. Buy viagra cheap It also did not stem from Matt Carkner’s Hanson Brotheresque imitation on Brian Boyle. Buy viagra cheap Rather, buy viagra cheap the loss came because the Rangers did not manage to maintain puck possession and a couple of bounces went against them in the 3-2 loss last night.

Buy viagra cheap “There’s always a natural tendency where you end up defending. Buy viagra cheap I thought we could have made some plays to try and keep some puck possession, buy viagra cheap but that’s what happens when you get into a little bit of that, buy viagra cheap” Rangers Coach John Tortorella said following the game. Buy viagra cheap “I don’t think we’re that bad, buy viagra cheap it’s kind of a fluky goal that goes right through Marc (Staal), buy viagra cheap right through his legs and they bang it in. Buy viagra cheap We were four minutes away from winning the hockey game and I still don’t think we played that poorly tonight, buy viagra cheap but I do think we need to continue to attack.”

Buy viagra cheap Even the other two Senators goals came off bounces that went against the Rangers. Buy viagra cheap Erik Karlsson’s bank shot that tied the game at 1-1 deflected off Michael Del Zotto and into the net. Buy viagra cheap Ottawa’s winning goal also came off a fortuitous bounce after a shot from the point hit Ryan McDonagh and bounced right to Chris Neil.

Buy viagra cheap A quick memo to the Blueshirts blueliners (especially Del Zotto) – nothing good ever happens when a defender is standing or skating through his own crease.

Buy viagra cheap Bad bounces and possible momentum swings were not the story of this game. Buy viagra cheap Instead, buy viagra cheap it is the way that the hatred between the two teams has been elevated exponentially. Buy viagra cheap

Buy viagra cheap At the start of the 3rd period, buy viagra cheap Joe Micheletti made a comment about how “tough” the game was. Buy viagra cheap Honestly, buy viagra cheap Joe was downplaying the tone of the game. Buy viagra cheap It was a chippy game that often turned downright dirty – a game just short of hand-to-hand combat.

Buy viagra cheap And depending on how Brendan Shanahan handles the review of Game 2, buy viagra cheap Monday night’s game could turn into a WWE Battle Royale. Buy viagra cheap It means nothing if Shanahan suspends Matt Carkner because he accomplished what he set out in Game 2. Buy viagra cheap Quite frankly, buy viagra cheap if Shanny wanted to mete out punishment he would force Ottawa to dress Carkner and give him 20 minutes of ice time on defense.

Buy viagra cheap Boyle addressed how he expects the intensity to pick up as the series continues.

Buy viagra cheap “It’s going to get elevated every night, buy viagra cheap” Boyle told the Associated Press. Buy viagra cheap “We have to keep trying to raise our game, buy viagra cheap raise our level of intensity throughout. Buy viagra cheap I am sure they are going to do the same.”

Buy viagra cheap As an aside, buy viagra cheap you had to love the way radio color analyst Dave Maloney characterized the Senators’ opening salvo in Game 2. Buy viagra cheap The former Ranger captain likened Carkner’s hit and subsequent mugging to old-time Philadelphia Flyers hockey. Buy viagra cheap Maloney went even further by saying that Carkner had no business being dressed for a playoff game.

Buy viagra cheap Carkner’s thuggery is not the only action that Shanahan has to review. Buy viagra cheap You know that he will be taking a long hard look at Carl Hagelin’s hit on Daniel Alfredsson – especially in light of the Ottawa captain missing the rest of the game.

Buy viagra cheap We have seen that Shanahan is more concerned with the injury status of the recipient as opposed to what the offender has done. Buy viagra cheap The Ottawa press is anticipating a one or two game suspension while the New York media expects Shanahan deals out one of his $2, buy viagra cheap500 fines to Hagelin.

Buy viagra cheap My only question with the Hagelin-Alfredsson hit is why didn’t Ottawa draw a minor (or even a third-man in penalty ala Brandon Dubinsky) when two Senators went after Hagelin right after the hit?

Buy viagra cheap Both Carkner and Hagelin have hearings scheduled for this afternoon. Buy viagra cheap Tortorella didn’t think Hagelin deserved a suspension, buy viagra cheap but Torts said if Hagelin gets one then Chris Phillips deserves one for his high hit on Ryan Callahan.

Buy viagra cheap The problem with handing out suspensions and seemingly basing them on injuries is that sometimes the only thing separating a player from getting a little banged up and suffering a serious injury is plain dumb luck or happenstance.

Buy viagra cheap For example, buy viagra cheap Brooks Orpik drew no fine or suspension for his hit on Derek Stepan and the Rangers forward was lucky to have not suffered an injury. Buy viagra cheap

Buy viagra cheap Looking back at last night, buy viagra cheap the extent of Alfredsson’s injury was made worse because he suffered a concussion earlier in the season – thanks to former Ranger Wojtek Wolski.

Buy viagra cheap The difference between the Stepan non-injury and Alfredsson’s injury was luck and happenstance. Buy viagra cheap If a player deserves a suspension then he should get one whether the opponent is hurt of nor. Buy viagra cheap You can base the length of the suspension on the result.

Buy viagra cheap If Hagelin, buy viagra cheap or even Dubinsky for that matter, buy viagra cheap face disciplinary action then it could mean an early start to the Chris Kreider Era because the options are limited. Buy viagra cheap

Buy viagra cheap Unless Coach Tortorella wanted fight fire with fire, buy viagra cheap John Scott is not going to see any action in this series. Buy viagra cheap Andre Deveaux could get the call if Torts wanted to add more muscle, buy viagra cheap but that would be a long shot.

Buy viagra cheap The Blueshirts could dress a seventh defenseman and even move Stu Bickel up to play forward. Buy viagra cheap But I doubt Steve Eminger is ready to play and I am not sure if it would be fair to expect Jeff Woywitka to give you any major minutes.

Buy viagra cheap The pickings with the Connecticut Whale are slim. Buy viagra cheap The three best options are Kris Newbury, buy viagra cheap Andreas Thuresson and Casey Wellman. Buy viagra cheap All three are veterans of the Calder Cup Playoffs, buy viagra cheap but none of them have appeared in an NHL playoff game.

Buy viagra cheap One other possibility would be to recall rookie center Jonathan Audy-Marchessault who turned an invitation to play in the Traverse City Tournament into a fine rookie season with the Whale as he scored 24 goals and 40 assists in 75 games. Buy viagra cheap However, buy viagra cheap at 5-foot-9 and 175 pounds, buy viagra cheap the rookie would be an inviting target.

Buy viagra cheap Odds are it would be best to give Kreider his first professional action. Buy viagra cheap With Game 3 being played in Ottawa, buy viagra cheap the spotlight would be lessened as would some of the pressure. Buy viagra cheap Tortorella could start him on the fourth line with Michael Rupp and John Mitchell with Brandon Prust moving up with Ruslan Fedotenko and Boyle. Buy viagra cheap Dubinsky could be moved to the first line and given a chance to return to the lineup with a vengeance.

Buy viagra cheap As a whole, buy viagra cheap the Rangers just need to remember the style of play that got them to the top of the Eastern Conference. Buy viagra cheap They need to return to their tenacity of their Game 1 forecheck while making sure they play smartly in their own end.

Buy viagra cheap During an interview on ESPN radio earlier on Saturday, buy viagra cheap Maloney warned to Rangers to not get caught running around in their zone when the Senators are working their own forecheck. Buy viagra cheap Maloney advised the Rangers to hunker down and maintain their positions rather than risk being caught out of position.
