Come on Rags.. it starts with one win.

Nice one subby, very understated, very cool.

While I would like more hockey, I think game 3 cut the heart out of the Rangers & it will all be over later tonight/early tomorrow.  While games 1 & 2 were literally a lucky bounce away from going to the Rags (as any OT game is), losing them & then coming home & losing game 3 (with the added benefit (?) of paranoia about the officials after some atrociously bad calls) I think wiped them out mentally.  They will come to play but it's hard to give it your all when in the back of your mind you're thinking that the world is against you.

All that said, I hope that they do pull out at least one win, for pride if nothing else.

If there is a sweep though (& i kind of hope that there is for the following reason), what will the NYC/GTA/Eastern biased press have to say about the Western Division now?  Having had to fight each of their other three opponents to a game seven & then coming in & blowing away the East in a sweep, it will be hard to ignore just how powerful many of the teams out there really are.  Time will tell.

And now to Fark, if tonight is the end I do want to thank all of the thread regulars for once again making watching the playoffs a very enjoyable experience.  In addition to the (often quite insightful) game commentary, the various thread drifts/links have taken me to corners of the internet that I hadn't seen before & I've bookmarked many of them for further exploration once I'm not trying to watch a game & type at the same time.  While my meds may not let me drink as much as I'd like, I certainly will hoist a big mug of goonjuice as a toast to you all - later on though 8am is a bit early even by Fark standards....

Now off to kill a dozen or so hours....

We go the entire playoffs without a sweep and haven't had anyone get swept in the finals all century, then the Rangers lay a goose egg in the goddamn Final. Way to represent the East, dickwads.

Completely agree.

Overtime losses are utterly gutting to team morale. To get shutout at home in game 3 when they knew they had to win only piled on the misery.

I expect the Rangers to come out with a lot pride, but their first slip up is going to crush them.

Imagine if LA became the only team to comeback from a 3-0 series deficit and then choke a 3-0 series lead in the same playoffs.

That's heavy.

Looks like the team that knocked the Sharks out of the playoffs is going to win the Cup. Again...

I want one more game, at least. I root for clinching the Cup at home, if I don't have any stake in the game.

It's Lemon-Lime Gatorade and vodka.

I go roughly 60/40 Gatorade, but if I'm looking to get wasted faster I'll go 50/50.

So my son lives outside NYC.   Tickets on Stubhub are still listed as starting at around $800 for upper level, though some articles are saying that tickets are falling below face value (which means $415 for upper level).

If he just goes to MSG with some cash, how much do you think it'd cost for him to buy a ticket on the street minutes before puck drop?

If he is looking at 400s (if thats what you mean by upper level).. it will probably be 4-500 depending on location.

Don't know how much of the game I'll be able to watch.  Mrs. Earguy's dad is in the hospital and she'll be home soon, I need to give her some attention.  Still, I should be able to catch the 3rd period if nothing else.

So you maniacs might have to fend for yourselves, at least at first.

No matter what happens tonight, this New York Rangers team has far surpassed even my wildest expectations. It was only March that I was wondering if they'd even make the playoffs. The Kings have likewise taken a completely unexpected path to the Cup and no matter who wins when the final horn blows, it will be a story of perseverance through adversity and good old-fashioned hockey grit. While my hopes have changed from "Rangers in 6" to "Don't Get Swept", nothing can take away the pride I have in this team, especially coming off a dramatic shift in philosophy after the coaching change. Here's to all the Ranger fans I know - the real ones, who have waited 20 years just to see Red, White, and Blue back in the SCF. We've done something great here, and only future greatness awaits us no matter what the outcome. With that said..

LET'S GO RANGERS!
