We're not fucking with the winning streak - Rangers Game Preview and Open Thread

This is what you get when you type "Rangers girls". Uh, we think there may be a disconnect on this one. Are we in Glasgow?

We're taking Crash Davis' advice pretty seriously. Two games in a row we've done our Google Image searches and just thrown the info out there and we've won. We're doing it again.

Rangers visit the Phone Booth tonight at 7:00, not the usual weeknight 7:30. That's because it's a special Original 6 matchup thingy, with guests at center ice and the whole thing is on the CBC. Like we said, Habs have won two in a row. Rangers have won 4 of their last 5, including last night in a shootout over the Pens. They once again lead the Eaastern Conference, thought the Broons have a million games in hand. The last time the Habs played the Rangers was that epic 6-5 comeback win. That won't happen again. Hey, I wonder what our old friends at The Blueshirt Bulletin are up to?

Well, at least we've got some Habs warming up. Big Tits broke out with 3 points in the Thrashers game, and Pleks played well too. We hope he's coming around. Captain K still a rock. Let's throw The Dagger in there, 'cause we love the way he may dump Gui! out of the lineup forever, because he knows HOW TO GO TO THE FUCKING NET. On the cold side, Kovy's goalless streak is now at 14 games. Higgy pointless in 3.

For the Blueshirts, Henrik Lundqvist has been outstanding, 4-1-0, 2.27, .931 in his last 5 games. Gomez and Zherdev leading the way for the offense. Chris Drury has cone cold.

Carbo sticking with the exact same line-up that beat the Thrash. We always say, coach, your best moves are the ones you don't make. Does this mean that we may never see Little Tits again?

Since there's not much left to say, here are some NHL topics for you to comment on this afternoon while we wait for the game - Avery apologizes, 'Canes welcome back Paul Maurice after axing Laviolette, Joe Sakic will be out 6 weeks with a back injury, Danny Brière out 4-5 with a groin, and the Raptors fire Sam Mitchell. Wait, what?

So conflicted ... hate Rangers FC with the white-hot fire of a thousand suns ... but enjoy that pic. Maybe a compromise would be a pic of her with that shirt off.

fezworth said...

@HF10: Shirt off, piled up by her feet, burning. Good compromise.

gillis said...

wasn't mitchell the coach of the year a couple of years ago? what the fuck happened?

I'm not going to turn off my tv if the habs go down 5 zip tonight.

chris nilan said...

don't look now but sid the kid is about to take the lead in the easten conference all star balloting... passed saku and tanguay and looks like kovalev is less than 1000 points ahead.

Panic Mode said...

I love Kovy don't get me wrong, but he shouldn't go to the all-star game.

lostinleafland said...

is Kovy still playing? Haven't seen him on the game sheet since Sept!!!.
btw, FHF, congrats on 1000th posts. Impressive.

gillis said...

I bet the NHL board had something to do with the sudden rush of crosby votes.

whatever. i dont give a shit anyway.

lostinleafland said...

I just passed out. CBC has the Habs on T.V., mid-week, in Ontario. fuck me, I'm think I'm going to cry..

Lafleur looks like he could still hold his own out there.

Lostinleafland said...

TITS!!!!!!!!! awesome goal.

copyranter said...

That fifth goal was artwork...speaking of which we just got back from a snooty NYC TriBeCa art show, missed the first two periods.

lostinleafland said...

@copyranter.
Best game we've played in a long time..it was 4-0 at one point!!
Begin/Max/BGL line is flying??
Saku had a fight with Gomez??
We came out strong in the first period and haven't stopped.
Little Tits might not get out of the press box anytime soon.

Bryan said...

aww they're so cute when they get playful after a win. price and gorges want to bone each other.

Van Hab said...

I just got in to catch the last ten minutes (ahh...Pacific Time Zone) and caught Dagger's goal right at the end. You KNOW when those long wristers start going in that net looks awful big for the whole team! Happy to see a big win, and I hope Carey keeps those pads!

cottoneye said...

Who could have predicted a week ago that our three stars tonight would be The Dagger, Mad Max (with a Gordie Howe Hat Trick no less)and... Bégin?!

What. the. fuck.

moeman said...

Nice win.

15-6-4

Go figure.

Go pants.

Go Habs!

HabsFan29 said...

so ive missed two wins in a row now. do i not watch for the rest of the season???

Van Hab said...

@29

You can come back when Lil' Tits does, cool? Don't take it personal, it's just business.

HabsFan29 said...

you know now that i think about it, i missed all 3 wins. this is bad

cottoneye said...

@ 29: Weren't you the fellow who went to the Caps game? Which we lost 0-3?

Panic Mode said...

Little Tits will be back.

Latendresse on the other hand might never play in the NHL again.

Shutdown said...

@ Panic Mode
He'll play in the NHL. But if Dags keeps playing like this, Gui! will have to look for another team.

Number31 said...

I want those goalie pads...

fezworth said...

@HF29: all of Hab fandom appreciates your sacrifice. Now, kindly take a hammer to your tv...

Doogie2K said...

Go PVR

Go Scottish chicks

Really, very little to complain about: couple of cheap hooking penalties (you diving twat Dubinsky), a couple of instances of trying to be too cute later in the game (including the play that led to the 4-2 goal), and a lot of missed opportunities on the PP (Goddamnit Markov), but most of the night was an even-strength clinic. That's how you play some fucking hockey boys; let's see that again against Joisey on Saturday.

Doogie2K said...

Oh, yeah, and any time you get two goals from your friggin' fourth line (congrats on the Gordie, Max), you know you're doing some shit right.

And poor Saku still can't buy a fighting major.

copyranter said...

@HF29:
also, you must, if you haven't already, burn that half-and-half sweater with a stolen candle from one of your city's many Cathlolic churches...

HabsFan29 said...

@copyranter - NEVER!!!!

Habsfan10 said...

That's right, Copyranter. 29 would never stoop to stealing a candle from a Catholic church.
