NFT: Islanders vs. Rangers @ MSG tonight 7pm

The 12th Man : 1/10/2019 2:16 pm
Islanders 23-14-4
Rangers. 17-18-7

Game is held at Islanders 3rd Home.

Game is the 1st if a back to back which will conclude this yearís meetings between the teams.

SEASON SERIES: SERIES TIED 1-1-0

The home team has won each of the first two meetings between the Islanders and Rangers this season. The Islanders won the first meeting 7-5 at Barclays Center on Nov. 15, while the Rangers won the rematch 5-0 on Nov. 21.

Having a real coach and laying D does matter in this league.
I want to thank the Caps again for Barry Trotz. Islanders had a bad effort on Tuesday night and will look to rebound. Rangers been in the middle of a bad stretch they are 3-5-2 in their last 10 games. The Islanders are 8-2 in the same stretch. Rangers have only 5 teams ahead of them in giving up goals with 145. Islanders in top 5 in goals against almost a whole goal per game lower than the Rangers. Rangers will be playing for pride Islanders to get into a playoff position. Season halfway done and our boys from the Island are fun to watch, well coached and are playing like a playoff team. Letís get it on! Go Isles!

ISLANDERS NOTES:

- The Islanders six-game winning streak was snapped on Tuesday night against Carolina. The Isles are looking to get back on track on Thursday.

- Thursday's game kicks off a home-and-home set against the Rangers, with the two teams meeting again on Saturday afternoon at Barclays Center. These are the final two meetings of the season between the crosstown rivals.

- The Islanders (50 points) are one point back of the Montreal Canadiens (51 points) for the second wild card berth, and one point back of the Columbus Blue Jackets (51 points) for third in the Metropolitan Division.

- Robin Lehner is currently on a career-high, seven-game winning streak. Lehner has allowed only 13 goals in his last 10 games (7-1-2, 1.34 GAA, .952 save percentage). UPDATE: Lehner will start on Thursday night.

- The Islanders power play is 1-for-9 over the team's past four games.

- Brock Nelson has six points (3G, 3A) in his last five games, including a three-point night on Tuesday vs Carolina.

- Mathew Barzal has 11 points (3G, 8A) in six career games vs the Rangers. Anthony Beauvillier has 12 points (6G, 6A) in eight games vs the Rangers.

RANGERS NOTES:

- The Rangers have lost four straight games by a combined score of 22-5. Overall the Rangers are 3-5-2 in their last 10 games.

- Mika Zibanejad leads the Rangers with 35 points (12G, 23A) in 42 games this season. Zibanejad and Kevin Hayes are tied for the team lead in assists (23).

- Henrik Lundqvist was pulled in each of his last two starts after allowing six and five goals, respectively. Lundqvist, the Rangers all-star representative, is 12-11-7 this season with a 3.04 GAA and a .909 SV%.

- The Rangers (41 points) are 10 points back of a playoff spot, while also trailing behind the Florida Panthers (41 points), Carolina Hurricanes (45 points) and the Islanders (50 points).

- The Rangers are 1-1-5 on home ice since the start of December.

What exactly am I missing? Started a thread the same pubescent Ranger fans come on with their usual comments. You knew it would happen. So here we are, the Islanders are an improving young team with a star in the making. The Rangers a team that is rebuilding but yet with many overpaid veterans that need to be moved in order for the real improvement to happen. Been there done that, it sucks to go through especially with a coach that is learning as he goes too. There are better days ahead for both franchises, the Islanders though looks like wil happen sooner rather than later.


Cool. Enjoy it. Take care.
We all need to remember

That though we all have our ancillary teams that we root for this is and we are 1st and foremost Giants fans. The rest is gravy. We all smile a little longer walk a little brisker and feel a little better when BigBlue is good. This has not easy as of late. So until that happens again I have to hope my other teams can get us through until next season starts.

You know I was in Wal-Mart the other day having to pick up a few things and there was a guy in the parking lot bringing in the shopping carts. I stood there thinking about what this poor guy goes through every day. I thought thank God there are positions for people who need it. Then I thought what kind of mentality does it take to want to do that each day. Then I came on here and read some of your posts and now I know exactly the mentality it takes. Make sure you clean out the carts before you bring them in today.
One thing that's becoming increasingly clear is that  
Metnut : 1/11/2019 9:07 am : link
Devon Toews should've made the team out of camp. He's already playing like a top 4 dman straight out of the AHL. It'll be interesting to see who ends up sitting when Hickey comes back. IMO, Hickey or Pelech need to be in the press box.

With Toews, Boychuk's renaissance year, the emergence of Pulock and Mayfield under Trotz and having Dobson and Wilde on the farm, the Islanders looks really set to be good on D for a long time.

It's one of the more dramatic turnarounds for a unit that i've ever seen in sports. Would be like the Giants offensive line turning into an asset next year with young guys signed long term and cheap everywhere.

Management knew he was ready. Just needed some seasoning after a long injury layoff. That and Snow screwed the pooch with the Pelch one way contract haha

It's glaring how important Filpula is to the team. They have played like crap since his injury. I never would have guessed it.

Hopefully they keep the toughness to one line at home. With last change, no need to roll out Johnston on L3.

No respect for Quinnipiac. Toews has an NHL role IMO.

Drewcon40 : 1/11/2019 9:30 am : link
Typical game (as of late) for both franchises. As a Rangers fan - I still felt last night didn't have the intensity as it did just a few short years ago. I commented earlier in the year that I thought the Islanders would balance out nicely after Tavares and his pajamas left (both financially and in terms of roster balance).

12th man is not totally wrong. I am not sure who "wins a cup first", the Islanders sure look like they are closer to having a contender but teams can come up short and then have to rebuild (NYR 2014 and 2015),

Hopefully (from a Ranger fan perspective), we can break the Barclay's curse. I certainly am not rooting for loses but if we land a Hughes or Kakko - it would certainly help getting this team on the right track.

While I take nothing away from the Islanders (or the fans on this board) for the win. I was impressed by the Rangers who without Hayes (no excuse but one of our better players) and since Jan 3 (Pittsburgh game) and a west coast trip that was awful, I thought the Rangers hung in there pretty well. No points for trying hard but I was happy that we brought some emotion. I am not sure if it was due to the opponent or maybe just trying to get past the West trip but we hung in there and played a strong third.

We lost to a better team.

They aren't actually all that young.


The core they are building on is around Barzal, Beau, Pulock, Ho Sang, Dal Colle, Toews.. with the vets of Lee, Bailey, Leddy and Nelson

They are fine with age, and have an impressive crop coming up after that.

When you're bad for that long, you tend to have talented youth in the wings.

Oh sure, they're absolutely closer than the Rangers, but that means almost nothing since the Rangers are putrid. It's like saying Chicago is closer to Hawaii than New York - either way you're still a helluva long way away.

Good comparison.

The only thing I would disagree with on 12th man is the "3rd home", that's trying a bit too hard. I "think" he has having some good natured fun. I am (unfortunately) a Mets fan and I wouldn't call the Bronx the Mets 2nd home and certainly know what Shea and Citi look(ed) like during Subway Series.

But, I am sure there were boisterous Islander fans at MSG last night.

I fully disagree. Specifically in Beau, Pulock and Toewes.

But that's something to re-evaluate in 10 years.

Seems a mite early to pencil him in for the next decade.

Pulock, eh. Solid player. Nowhere near a #1 defenseman on a contender.

A friend of mine has a connection with a dude who has a box at the Garden and I was lucky enough to catch the game there last night. Great experience, but you Rangers fans shouldn't be mocking our obstructed views. I felt like I was at Barclay's!

All jokes aside, that 3rd period was an onslaught. We actually played a very solid game until then, but you could tell the Rangers were desperate for a W in that 3rd. Hoping tomorrow afternoon is the Rangers' last ever game at Barclay's Center and they leave the place winless :)

Well my comment was mostly in jest. The site lines I think are very good at the Garden. In this particular suite though, unless youíre sitting in the first two rows, you canít see anything below the dots on that side. Even if youíre right behind them. And most people in these things stand around and eat, and if you want to do that you canít realt catch the game at the same time.

But yeah I was totally kidding comparing it to Barclayís ha

That sucks that he had to leave a game he loves due to a head injury. May not have been the player he was paid to be but, seeing anyone have due to injury sucks. Good Luck to him in the future. I hope he is able to get over his concussion issues so he can lead a normal life.

bigbluehoya : 1/11/2019 10:56 am : link
was the first sports "jersey" that my now-4-year-old son ever had. He used to run around house yelling "I'M RICK NASH"

I'll always remember him screaming at me when I told him that Nasher wasn't on the Rangers anymore on the day he was traded. He wasn't quite crying, but he was pretty fucking pissed off, and he thought I had done it.

Nash  
pjcas18 : 1/11/2019 11:15 am : link
is one of the players I'd tell kids to watch to learn fundamentals.

Watch him with the puck, watch without the puck. Fundamentally there is nothing he could not do and do well.

He's a rare breed in the NHL. He's solid or better 5v5, can play on the PK, PP, and can score "goal scorer's goals" and greasy goals. Solid hockey IQ.

Good size, great locker room guy, and he does everything well. Can play physical (wish he would have been more physical, but Nash was a physical player)

The problem Nash faced his whole career is he won the Richard at 19, setting up career expectations he just wasn't really set up to meet. 19 PP goals as a 19 year old, and that was almost 50% of his goals that year he won the Richard.

Concussions suck.

When you're bad for that long, you tend to have talented youth in the wings.


That's not going to bring a Cup to Brooklyn (or wherever they plan to play), not even close. It's a start but moving forward the Islanders are going to need to be a lot better at recruiting, and a lot smarter with their Cap dollars. Can't fuck up with signings like Ladd anymore.

It's not terribly hard after so many years of losing to build a decent nucleus... retaining and maximizing that "window" is the hard part in the modern day cap era NHL. As the Rangers saw - a few bad moves like letting Stralman walk, career ending concussions to tremendous young D-men like Sauer... are often the difference between a Cup and nothing.

And even if you get everything right... Ovechkin, Crosby and Malkin are still in this division, and Toronto and Tampa are tremendous in the Atlantic. It's a mountain to climb.

Trotz should help on all these fronts though. I dont hate the Islanders - just 12th Man and maybe Fekker.

if I think the Islanders are good team (as a 44 year old Ranger fan)?

I grew up on Long Island and went through the "1940" chants and chicken dances, etc.

I can't switch teams but I don't have the Mick Vukota/Baumgartner hate. I don't think you can just say "we'll win the cup". Tampa Bay can very well see this window close without a cup.

Barzal is obviously a good player but Ryan Pulock is a player I really like. He has a bomb for a shot.

Anyway, I was just being complimentary because I just want 12th man to like me. : ) #fingerscrossed.

and when Shestyorkin finally takes over for Lundqvist and posts a 0.00 GAA, we will have the last laugh.

if I think the Islanders are good team (as a 44 year old Ranger fan)?

I grew up on Long Island and went through the "1940" chants and chicken dances, etc.

I can't switch teams but I don't have the Mick Vukota/Baumgartner hate. I don't think you can just say "we'll win the cup". Tampa Bay can very well see this window close without a cup.

Barzal is obviously a good player but Ryan Pulock is a player I really like. He has a bomb for a shot.

Anyway, I was just being complimentary because I just want 12th man to like me. : ) #fingerscrossed.

and when Shestyorkin finally takes over for Lundqvist and posts a 0.00 GAA, we will have the last laugh.



If you get along with PGA you are okay in my book.:) We both have quality goalies in the pipeline.



Yeah, very true...very true....but Igor's a little bit better than Ilya :)
Nash was the best, everyone needs to eat shit.

LMAO at Islander fans getting hyped up again over their crap team. Everyone other than Barzal sucks.

We're not hyped. We're just cautiously avoiding pessimism... for now.
Here is one thing we can agree on...

...not to change topics.

Jets fans are already planning the Superbowl parade for the Gregg Williams DC hire.

Ha also, I just got caught up on this whole thread.

And I gotta say, it's really fully to see all this time later, B in ALB is still absolutely delusional about what the Rangers are and drunkenly attacking people on BBI. It's one thing to say they've made the right organizational decisions over the last 12 months. They certainly have. It's another to say "the future is bright!" without any reasonable reservations.

The future is neither bright nor dark. It's incomplete and unquantifiable for you guys. Settle the fuck down.

Oh my heart is broken you don't like me Boo Hoo! I could care less what you think. You know my 1st thought this morning was not I hope MetsAreBack in last Place likes me. After reading your posts it is more like what a buffoon. [/quote]


It's could NOT care less what you think. When you are trying to insult someone you'd think you'd at least get that right.
