Well in that case, I hope you saved the picture. I'll be removing it before anyone throws in a complaint.

That wasn't necessary. If someone complained I would just have temped it. Now it's just a post about nothing. Sort of a phantom post. Go ahead and put the bird back up and continue chatting about the hockey.

Do you watch ever Bismarck? I've managed to get my mate well into it, fair trade now, rugby for hockey. He noticed right off the post-season game is very different from the regular season.

As with the NFL, I catch highlights of some of the games online. Reminds me a lot of indoor hockey we played at uni, but more contact and on skates. Not bad.

Delta Airlines offers Rangers fans 17-minute flight to New Jersey for Game 3

Good deal, the traffic on the Staten Island Expressway is unbelievable.

17 minute flight? Seriously?!

My cousin lives in Brooklyn and tells me it's like a 30-40 minute drive away from Prudential Center.

I'm guessing going to the airport, checking in, boarding etc. would probably amount to an extra 10-15 minutes, no? Sounds like it won't make a big difference.

Anyway, the Kings are now 11-1 in the playoffs. My goodness :eek:

Yeah, juggernaut. I've watched all 3 games so far of the LA/PHX series. The Kings are rolling. It's their Cup to lose, as they say. I think they stack up well against either NJ or NYR, whoever advances there.

And Tortorella, what a douche. I used to chuckle at how he dealt with the media and reporters, but now I just think he's a tool. Attention whore. It's about the team, not you Torts. His post-game antics have become a distraction to the team, imo.

No doubt, but they haven't had much of a test yet though it seems, or at least much pressure. I don't think either NJ or NY will be an easy win for anyone. Let's see how they stack up under some stress

Meh. This article sums up my feelings quite closely. I mostly disagree with you about the attention part. There's no way that's the reason. I think he actually and simply dislikes dealing with the media--and who can blame him? He'd undoubtedly be much happier simply blowing off the conference altogether after a loss. The difference is MSG management lets him get away with it. I don't think they like the media much either--and who can blame them. As a fan, I could care less about how he handles them. On one hand I do think he should just make nice and give some stupid meaningless answer and make them happy, to avoid the annoying controversy. The other hand thinks, #$`!# 'em, they're the ones generating the controversy to begin with, let's win this and laugh at them.

As said, it's always after a loss. If he did make a bit more of an effort to suck it up and be human after a loss, that would be better.

good on torts for benching gaborik in game 2. injects something into the team. gaborik can look a sniper one minute and a floater the next. that anisimov, he can make a pretty play, deliver a big check and then cough the puck up and look like a twit. torts must love him because he f's up big time, torts gives him a little talking to and it's back to business. I enjoy watching anisimov because it is such a soap opera every game. torts must have an ulcer the size of a grapefruit watching this guy play.
kovie is on fire. every shift he is a presence. look the f;ck out, the k-train is on the tracks. watch him stick handle, this guy has beautiful hands. there are only a few guys with hands like that; mike greene, sid and ovie.
