ECQF - Series D - Rangers versus Flyers

Rate this topic

42 posts in this topic

Close enough to almost be a subway series. Hopefully this results in each team's fans packing the other team's arena and creating a GREAT atmosphere.

Philly always seems like a bunch of d-bags but the Rags (maybe it's just their fans) always have this palpable sense of entitlement when they really haven't done anything since since '93/4. Sure they've been to the conference finals twice in the 20 years since then, but they also missed the playoffs for eight of those twenty.

Rags - only because a friend of mine roots for them and they're slightly less dislikable.

Lundqvist versus Giroux great matchup although I'll never bet against the King I want to see the Midget known as MSL to loose so hopefully takes it :)

This is a rare case when I'll root against O6. For some reason I just can't seem to work myself up to even think about the Rags let alone care about them. Since Pronger is no longer an issue, I am free to root for the Flyers, but not enough to give them a "GO."

I dislike both these teams mostly because of their fan bases but I guess I dislike the Rags less? NY in 7.

I like both teams, but if I had to pick a team to move on it would be the Flyers. They're far more interesting than the Rangers, and should the Penguins unfortunately move forward, I love watching the battle of Pennsylvania as both teams goon it up.

Ken Daniels is calling the game tomorrow with Pierre McGuire.

At least it's not Eddie. He won't be so biased. Probably looking to replace Eddie

Even with Mason injured I pick Flyers in 6. I stand by it because NYR traded their heart and soul Captain Callahan so late in the season... that will have an impact for sure.

That's just so weird like he's cheating on the Wings :confused:. At least one announcer I can stand.

I wish we could listen in on the trash talk :lol:

I don't get what Ken Daniels doing a game has to do with replacing Eddie. Daniels does play by play and isn't a color analyst.

Good for Ken. I just hope he doesn't leave us for the big money at NBC. I like him better than Strater.

Is Ken going to be back tomorrow for the Red Wings game? Are there even going to be local feeds for Detroit this playoffs, or will half (or all) the games be blacked out due to NBC?

NBC only has 2 regular hockey announcing teams, They use additional local announcers for the playoff games.

I like Dave Strader better than Ken Daniels. But both are better than Mike Goldberg. Argh, was that a painful season (The Stanley Cup notwithstanding) Mickey couldn't hide his disdain for the guy. How about that physicality? What a boner killer that he was in the booth on March 26, 1997 and Mickey was on his way downstairs to do an interview.

From NHL:

The Philadelphia Flyers have been consistent in saying they have confidence no matter which goalie is in net, Steve Mason or Ray Emery.

But with Mason making his first start of the Eastern Conference First Round series against the New York Rangers on Friday in Game 4 (7 p.m. ET; RDS, TSN, CNBC, MSG, CSN-PH), there is one skill that sets him apart from Emery, and that's Mason's ability to handle the puck.

"When you have a guy that can make the right decisions behind the net, it's very important," forwardVincent Lecavalier said. "It helps our defensemen out for sure. Just making that first quick play or them communicating with the defense. It's important to get out of the zone. I think it's going to be a great help for us."

I knew it could be done.
