    This game already feels like a must win one, before our home opener. If we lose I wouldn't be in AV's shoes.

    But I got a bad feeling about this if Lundqvist is out. The Flyers also struggle, they are hungry. Hopefully Kreider will find the net.

    I don't think this will be pretty.

    Prediction:

    Flyers 5
    Rangers 0

    If Talbot and Kreider can play well, I think we've got a shot. Stepan and Brassard also have to wake up, both have been way down compared to last year. I don't think it's pretty, but we've got a shot.

    Prediction: Flyers 2, Rangers 3 in the shootout. If this team can't beat the Flyers, the cellar of our division, we're in major trouble (not that we aren't already...) Goals from Richards and Kreider. Zucc scores in the shootout for the only goal of the shootout.

    The boys should expect a physical game. Rinaldo will run around like a pitbull with rabies like he always does.

    The little bit I've seen from Talbot I thought he looked solid, I think the team will respond well in front of him. Flyers aren't playing any better than the rangers. Think it's going to be a 3-2 rangers win with goals from Richards, Miller, and Staal.

    Seems like either Pyatt or Zucc will sit tommorow. Which means, Pyatt will play.

    I think it'll be closer than most predict. Talbot should be ultra-focused given that it's a major milestone for him. He's a solid goalie with an NHL future, not some AHL scrub. 3-1 final. Giroux (x2) and Talbot for the Flyers and Miller chips in a late goal for the Rangers.

    Probably a good decision, Zucc will get killed down there.

    Physical game, sure. Not worried about that aspect. There's enough of it with that lineup.

    Kreider can hit, boyle can hit, Pyatt can be physical as well. The whole bottom line can, and both Mash and Dorse won't tolerate nonsense. If Falk's in the lineup again there's another. Miller isn't a pushover.

    Should be more concerned about actually scoring, early on, and giving Talbot good D in his first game.

    Meh. He can handle them.

    AV will play his lovechild, that's all.

    I'm okay with either of Pyatt or Zucc sitting.

    I honestly have no faith in this game.

  16. if Rinaldo is in the starting lineup, id send Mash and Dorsett to try to provide some energy for the Rangers.. Rangers did well whenever they had a fight within the first few mins of the opening faceoff.

    At the very least, Dorsett vs. Rinaldo would be very entertaining.

    Let their goons run around and take dumb penalties.
     
  19. yea.. and knowing the Rangers luck Rinaldo injures Richards with a knee on knee injury, take the 5 mins powerplay and dont score on the 5 mins PP while Richards is out for the next 6 months and lose 2-1 :help:

    Ok. Rinaldo injures Richards with a knee on knee. Mashinter jumps on him, and gets a penalty himself. Now we don't even have a powerplay, still don't score, and Richards is still injured.

    This game is entirely dependent on the performances of stepan, richards, brassard and talbot
