New York Rangers
Boston boy, Chris Kreider scored a re-directed pass from Rick Nash high past Tuukka Rask for the overtime game winner putting some life back into the Rangers playoff hopes.The Bruins should have easily won this game if it weren't for two "flukes." One where Tuukka Rask fell down and then one where Zdeno Chara lost a puck behind the net.The good news is Tyler Seguin broke his slump with a huge goal that momentarily put the Bruins up 3-2 before Brian Boyle put the tying goal in on the power play.Nathan Horton and Torey Krug also scored for the Bruins, as well as Carl Hagelin and Derek Stepan scoring for the Rangers.Game 5 will be Saturday night at 5:30 back in Boston, hopefully the B's can win.
BEST OF MAXIM
One thing about Chris Kreider that has always sort of bothered me is that he's a bit aloof. He doesn't wear his emotions on his sleeve and he looks borderline bored sometimes out on the ice. But man that all changed with one re-direction goal to give the Rangers a Game 4 overtime victory and keep them alive in their best of seven series to the Bruins. Just look at the above...
This series is not over just yet.
Chris Kreider‘s game-winning goal 7:03 into overtime allowed the Rangers to stave off elimination in their Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Bruins.
After goals by Nathan Horton and Torey Krug gave Boston a 2-0 advantage in the second period, consecutive goals by the Rangers knotted the score just over a minute into the third.
A.B. According to Toucher & Rich and descriptions/comments on numerous websites – the unnamed reporter from 98.5 The Sports Hub angered Bruins goalie, Tuukka Rask, by touching (and possibly knocking over) his iPad.
For me, the story isn’t the swearing on live television. For me, the stare down is the story. If Tuukka had punched the reporter in the face I wouldn’t have...
The Rangers scored one of the strangest goals you’ll ever see in the second period of Thursday’s Game 4 against the Bruins, and it energized the team. Luckily, the Bruins had an “energy” line waiting to help neutralize the threat.
Now, as the Blueshirts head into the third period of what could be their last game of the year, Tuukka Rask and the B’s have a lead — but the...
Eleven games, one goal and five points. That’s it. That’s what the Rangers investment in Rick Nash has yielded them this postseason. Hardly seems worth it when you consider they gave up two solid role players, Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov, a prospect and a first-round draft pick. That doesn’t even include the prorated portion [...]
When the Boston Bruins Nathan Horton rifled his power play goal past the Rangers Henrik Lundqvist, it was over, Chris Kreider saw to that.
The Bruins were on their way to a sweep in their NHL Eastern Conference semifinals against the New York Rangers after taking what appeared to be a protectable 2-0 lead.
Then came the third period and the Rangers found their heart.
We've all heard that expression "boy, he'd like to have that one back." I'm pretty sure that applies to Tuukka Rask here. In Thursday night's game, with the Bruins up 2-0, Rask moves to his left, slips somehow, and allows a Carl Haglin barely-there shot to roll on by:
There's so much to love/hate about this goal, depending on what team you...
Just when I thought I couldn't love Chris Kreider any more after his Game 4 overtime winner, he dropped this bomb when asked about the Rangers chances in this series after the game (via NHL.com)...
"Goonies never say die."
...amazing! Seriously, has any professional athlete ever used that line before? In my opinion, it needs to be used more. Should easily...
Boston Bruins forward Tyler Seguin was bringing the puck into the zone when he went to put a shot on net. As he shot, New York Rangers forward Chris Kreider put his stick out to poke check, and Seguin’s follow through ended up riding all the way up Kreider’s stick and Kreider was hit in the face. At the same time Rangers defenseman Steve Eminger was trying to impede Seguin...
The Bruins couldn't close out the sweep on Thursday night so game 5 is on for tonight. The Bruins played great in game 4 but Tuukka Rask blew the game for them because it really looked like he got drunk in between periods when he fell down on his butt and let in a goal.Game 5 is now at home though and the Bruins really need to cap off the series tonight or else Boston will spiral...
Yes, the Bruins had a few brain farts and gave away Game Four to the New York Rangers.
Yes, Tuukka Rask let in a goal that he soon rather forget. The slo-mo goal from hell was like watching a horror movie. You see the killer behind your lady and all you can do is scream….NOOOOOO!
However, this is not 2010, but don’t tell MSG Reporter Stan Fischler that:
Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports that Chris Kreider was given a maintenance day from the team's optional practice today.
...reward for the game winner? lol
Meanwhile, Pat Leonard at the Daily News says that Ryane Clowe, Brad Richards, Darroll Powe and Marc Staal all skated with the taxi squad players before the optional. Anton Stralman...
Tuukka Rask can't handle the 'changeup' from Carl Hagelin.
Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask saw the replay of his Game 4 gaffe over and over on television.
''I saw it in my head, too,'' he said Friday, a day after he fell in the crease and allowed a goal that helped the New York Rangers stay alive in the Eastern Conference semifinals. ''You can either cry about it or laugh about it. I choose to have a sense of humor...
Well, it was fun while it lasted. The Bruins –the better team throughout the series– sent the Rangers home today with a 3-1 win in Game Five. Torey Krug was an absolute killer in this series, and he scored the game tying goal in this game. That’s the season, so here’s the final goal breakdown of the year:
Rangers 1, Bruins 0
Lots of things done right on this shift.
