Lundqvist
As I stated in my post game thoughts last night, the officiating was awful all around last night. But the confirmation that Chris Neil did not kick in Jason Spezza's late goal to pull the Senators to within one at 3-2 takes the cake... To watch on YouTube, click here.How in the world did the NHL conclude that was a good goal? There is absolutely no explanation that can be given. Oh wait, there is (via NHL.com)..."At 19:21 of the third period in the Rangers/Senators game, video review was used to determine if Ottawa Senators forward Chris Neil kicked the puck into the New York net. Video review was inconclusive in determining if Chris Neil's left skate propelled the puck into the net. Call on the ice stands, good goal Ottawa."Who the hell does the NHL have looking at these goal reviews? Mr. Magoo? My ninety-year old grandfather could see that and he's got two eye patches.Henrik Lundqvist wasn't exactly excited about the call either and let the r...

Surprise, Henrik Lundqvist Named Vezina Finalist

To the surprise of no one (hence the sarcastic title), the National Hockey League has announced that New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist has been named a finalist for the 2011-12 Vezina Trophy, which is awarded to the League's best goaltender during the regular season. This is the fourth time in Lundqvist's seven-year career that he has been named a finalist for...

Video: Lundqvist, Prust & Richards Talk About Game 6

… seriously, have you EVER heard Henrik Lundqvist come out and say ANYTHING like this before? Absolutely not. So you know Henrik is totally pissed off over this.  He’s right, someone wanted Ottawa back in this game. Probably the same people who wanted Philadelphia back in the Winter Classic game as well. It’s a total [...]

Lundqvist a Vezina finalist

In no surprise whatsoever, Henrik Lundqvist was named a finalist for the Vezina trophy this season. Lundqvist had by far the best season of his career this year, posting a 1.97 GAA (4th in the NHL), a .930 SV% (3rd), 39 wins (3rd), and 8 shutouts (3rd). Lundqvist was the rock in the Rangers net, and despite having his numbers slide a little bit in the final month of the year, when...

Henrik Lundqvist on controversial goal: “Someone wanted the Senators back in it”

Photo Credit: NorthJersey.com With under a minute left in Game 6 of the New York Rangers- Ottawa Senators playoff series, Senators’ forward Chris Neil scored a goal, making it 3-2 Rangers while bringing the Senators within one goal. However, after a few replays, it apparently seemed as though Neil had illegally kicked the puck into a net, an illegal play which would have nullified...

Video- Lundqvist’s Remarks Post-Game

Henrik Lundqvist was upset with the controversial late goal by the Senators last night and spoke about it post-game. I don’t know about you, but my feelings are the Rangers won the game, brush the goal off and move on. Instead, Lundqvist went in the opposite direction.

Senators-Rangers Preview

Henrik Lundqvist gave a wink and a smile when asked about his postgame tirade after the New York Rangers stayed alive with a Game 6 win at Ottawa. The usually mild-mannered star goalie, who could be in line to win the Vezina Trophy for the first time, wasn't really in the mood to rehash it. There are much bigger things on his mind and the minds of his teammates, like beating...

Del Zotto to Be Suspended for Hit on Neil?

Last night late in the third period Michael Del Zotto caught Chris Neil with his head down behind the net......hope Del Zotto told Neil "that was for Boyle" after destroying him with that devastating hit....normally not a fan of a player getting injured, but I had a big ole smile on my face watching Neil lay there on the ice after being dropped like a sack of potatoes.And...

Travis Yost: Sunday Take: Chris Neil Avoids Discipline; Defending Brendan Shanahan

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- After a 2-0 shutout victory in Madison Square Garden, the Ottawa Senators have effectively pushed the New York Rangers to the brink of elimination. An eight seed about to drop the pride of the Eastern Conference in the first-round? Pretty newsworthy. And yet, the lead in the Sunday papers has shifted from the potential upset to a controversial...

New Wrinkle Added to the Senators vs Rangers Rivalry

For their next installment in their popular gaming franchise, EA Sports has opted to let fans ultimately decide which NHL player they want to adorn the cover of NHL 13. By creating a 60-player tournament bracket in which every organization was represented by two players, EA Sports has encouraged fans to get out and vote for their favorite player(s). I'm assuming that EA created...

GARTH: Consistency? What Consistency??!!

Count me as a guy who stands firmly behind John Tortarella. Chris Neil is a frequent offender. He's a guy with a jones for smoking his opponents with late hits while they are not looking. Neil did it again Saturday night when he cold-cocked Ranger forward Brian Boyle. Did Boyle have the puck on his stick? was in in a prone position? Did he see Neil lurking? Was it...

Prust Alters Series With Bout Against Neil

Games 2 through 5 we watched as Chris Neil dominated the Rangers physically without a care in the world as John Tortorella inexplicably stapled Michael Rupp and Stu Bickel to the bench.Well Brandon Prust finally had enough and could have changed the course of the series by doing this with the Rangers down 1-0 in the first period... ...i don't care that Prust lost...

Replacing Boyle in the lineup

When Chris Neil took out Brian Boyle with a questionable hit on Saturday night, he took out the Rangers most effective forward. He took out their leading scorer, top defensive forward, and top penalty killer in this series. He took out the only player that has managed to get under the skin of the Senators. It’s a big blow to the Rangers, and not a player easily replaced. The best...
