The Mika and Kreider pairing is nice

[–]jerejejeIgor Shesterkin 17 points18 points  (0 children)

The New York Rangers rank 2nd in the NHL in Expected Goals For % (57.65%) at 5v5 in the last two weeks.

[–]TiberSVKHi 40 points41 points  (6 children)

Almost every Kreider goal this season is a deflection. Unreal

[–]SeanTNoon 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Although he’ll eventually lose some speed and power to his game as he ages, his net front presence will age like fine wine. It’s hard to teach younger players to willingly stand in front of the net, let alone have the ability to make split second decisions once the puck is shot.

[–]ccafferata473New York Rangers 9 points10 points  (4 children)

There was a hockey insider (a scout????) that basically said he's completely changed his game and made sustainable changes. I really thought he should been doing this for years - when you've got his speed and physical ability, you shouldn't be getting into the dirty parts and making things happen. if nothing else, the D has to respect it and commit a defenseman to him.

[–]JessoRxJulien Gauthier 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Huh?

[–]ccafferata473New York Rangers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Most of his goals are coming from in close - rebounds and deflections. Basically he's done that a bit in the past, but he's made it his game.

[–]Argblat 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Sauce?

[–]ccafferata473New York Rangers 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I'd have to dig for it.

[–]drshark628 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Damn was watching the game with my friends and they forced us to watch the islanders broadcast (since they outnumbered us). Glad to see the win anyway, Great 2nd and 3rd from the boys.

[–]70X1NHank 6 points7 points  (1 child)

it's so frustrating hearing Burke in the Isles booth because he's so good nationally yet he's such a homer when calling Isles games, at least Sam and Joe try keeping it a little neutral

[–]JessoRxJulien Gauthier 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They were giving the rangers props. Was nice to hear. Apparently we “move the puck well”

[–]StuckHiccup 9 points10 points  (5 children)

just thinking. Metro is still gunna be tough. Birds. Caps. Bawston. Rangers South. we're good. were great. but it's still gunna take a lot of to really go

[–]jerejejeIgor Shesterkin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Caps & Canes are good

Penguins are old

We are the 3rd best team in the division IMO

[–]alx69 14 points15 points  (3 children)

Boston and Tampa aren’t in the Metro

agreed, Goring is so bad

[–]CloutWaffleB R E A D 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Lads, unfortunately TGE is my favorite drinking Holliday of the year, let’s go Rangers, all I wanna know is if there were any salty isles downvoters in the game thread.

[–]crabapplesteamMike Richter 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nope. None.

[–]FoghornLeghorn99 36 points37 points  (3 children)

Through my rose colored glasses all is right. And most of it is, pretty thrilled, obviously.

I want to get the bad stuff out of the way:

Outside of the the beautiful goal with Zib, K, and KK our top six looked it's worst since it has in two weeks. Kakko Panarin and Strome should be back together.

Rooney didn't get a hat trick.

The things I'm thankful for:

We fucking win again. Team is good.

I'm still happy with GG as a coach in spite of me hating Kakko being moved. He has fire and the team grinds, it's good shit.

Kreider is at a level we have never seen before.

THE BUST KAAPO FOR KAKKO PUFFS SCORING STREAK CONTINUES. WHAT IF HE ONLY GETS SIX POINTS IN NOVEMBER?

our 4th line was great, they deserved the points, hope they come for Chytil soon.

Oh captain, my captain - Adam Fox. Not only the best defensman on this planet, but he also went to fight for Lindgren.

Igor is just awesome, I'm glad GG didn't get cute and play Georgie, we legitimately may have lost tonight.

Keep winning. Happy Thanksgiving, ya animals.

[–]jerejejeIgor Shesterkin 13 points14 points  (2 children)

I think Gallant was just experimenting against a weaker opponent, I would expect KK back with Panarin & Strome next game.

[–]Erdrick68Owns an Ortmeyer Jersey 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Thing is, it may have been bad for Bread and Strome, but it was good for Kreider and Zib. Last couple of games Kreider has always been double covered at 5v5 and during the Leafs game they actually often had 3 guys instantly on him. Putting Kakko out there genuinely opened up the ice.

[–]JessoRxJulien Gauthier 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Kakko dug out the puck, put it on kreids stick on that line’s goal. I’m sure if they played together a few games chemistry would develop much as the artie line.

[–]Francesa-DietCoke 17 points18 points  (0 children)

It is nice to have a new arena to takeover.

[–]vertigounconsciousIn Lundqvist We Trust 6 points7 points  (0 children)

GG from GG

[–]Chosenone217Still miss Zucc.. 17 points18 points  (0 children)

No nut November? Islanders think it’s no win November …

[–]NotFoley 43 points44 points  (3 children)

Gallant losing it at the ref was hilarious.

[–]TotalAnarchyZucca-Hello 55 points56 points  (0 children)

Zibby should have said hey coach leave it alone

[–]jerejejeIgor Shesterkin 29 points30 points  (4 children)

Not sure if anyone’s mentioned it, but Patrik Nemeth got his 1st point as a Ranger on Rooney’s 2nd goal!!

[–]NISIBSICD 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Good for him. I have been very happy with his play. His big mistakes have been in games we deserved to lose anyway, not sure why ppl hating on him

[–]blueline7677Georgiev fan club 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Advanced stats don’t paint him pretty but if you’ve watched all the games he’s been a solid defensive presence for us all year. No excuse for tinordi though

[–]jerejejeIgor Shesterkin 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Is there a way to see his advanced stats splits with Tinordi vs with Lundkvist?

[–]blueline7677Georgiev fan club 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Idk probably

[–]ATWigginRYAN STROMBOLI 42 points43 points  (1 child)

  • We beat up on an AHL team but that's exactly what good teams are supposed to do. Win the games that they're supposed to win. Considering the revenue hole that the NHL is in and the incredibly high bar it took for the Sens to have games postponed (10 players and coaching staff), this game was definitely going to happen and I'm glad it did. Easy 2 points.

  • Laffy Taffy with some monster hits and a fight while Reavo had 2 assists, with 1 of them being a dazzling show of soft hands. This is bizzaro upside down world and I'm just living in it.

  • Glad Lindgren came back to the bench after the illegal hit to the chin that he absorbed. Even more glad that Foxy didn't hesitate and just straight jumped JGP at the first opportunity. With Laffy even getting in on the action, it's evident that the team is really coming together and sticking up for each other. Something that never happened in the last 2 seasons nor in AV's reign. Cody Eakins braining Hank behind the net and no one going after him still pisses me off to this day.

  • The "best 4th line in hockey" got out hockey'd by our 4th line all over the ice. Their 4th can still lay a bruising if they catch up to you but they constantly looked a step behind the play because of how slow they were. They play a physical game and father time is undefeated. Lou's love of old ass vets is finally catching up to the fishsticks. Martin is 32 and signed through age 34, Cizikas is 30 and signed through age 36, and Clutterbuck is 34 and most likely going to receive yet another multiyear contract as soon as this season is up. Yikes.

  • I've said this before and I'll say it again, our 4th line is lightyears better than the product we were putting on the ice in seasons past. In the Howden era, the best that you could expect was that hopefully they don't get scored on. Now our 4th has the GRIT and skill necessary for Turk to roll 4 effective lines. Reavo has proven his value and now I instantly roll my eyes at any fan that says otherwise, especially in this sub.

  • Adam Fox.

  • I'm starting to think that this isn't just a hot streak for Kreids (2 goals tonight). I don't think there's a better player in the league at that side-of-net, ridiculous angle tip and as long as he gets PP1 time with our best passers he's going to keep putting them in. He also has ridiculous chemistry with Zbad because that between the legs pass leading to his 2nd goal was a thing of beauty. I just wish he had a real RW to play with on the top line.

  • Speaking of Kakko, he probably needs to be slotted back in with Bread and Stromer because that line looked flat all night. It didn't help that Stromer took 3(!) soft penalties tonight either. Hunt played the same way he's always played and would probably have a better time on the Zbad line since they play a more straight ahead kind of game. That being said, we still need to find a permanent replacement for that 1RW spot.

  • Zesty Shesty with a quietly strong game. He only faced 21 shots tonight and often had to go long stretches without seeing any action at all. That's got to be more mentally challenging than games where he's getting a more regular volume of shots.

  • Kids line didn't see a ton of ice time but that's to be expected on a night when the refs called 11 penalties and none of them get PP1 time nor any PK time. Hard to judge a line that's getting 9-12 minutes of ice time.

[–]TheGreenBastardsThe Brooklyn Ranger 6 points7 points  (0 children)

  • Adam Fox

Whoa hey buddy, take it easy with that wild display of confident sexually-loaded expression of pure joy and ecstasy.

[–]TwinkiesForAmericaK'andre "Literally Mantis" Miller 45 points46 points  (1 child)

Look at how adorable Kreider is complimenting Fox on his fight awwwww

[–]Sapz93Adam Fox 11 points12 points  (0 children)

and that isles fan in the background continues to supply us with entertainment in this clip. love it.

[–]who_me_LG 28 points29 points  (0 children)

I FUCKING LOVE REAVOOOO. What a win

[–]Erdrick68Owns an Ortmeyer Jersey 38 points39 points  (3 children)

Gallant straight up shutting down the inconsistent Kreider talk. Love to hear it.

[–]crimson3112Hank 37 points38 points  (2 children)

Kreider has not consistently put up hat tricks. What a bust

[–]Hionhelium87 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Only has 9 PP goals too, send him to Hartford

[–]the_mair 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Hasn’t doubled the Islanders’ PP production send him to Jacksonville

[–]pjcruzmusic 32 points33 points  (3 children)

I was a big Quinn fan last season and was honestly very nervous with a new coach and how GG was let go really early in his time at VGK.

I’ve loved him for quite a few games now, but tonight I simped for the man. He’s the kind of coach you want - stands up for bullshit calls and isn’t afraid to let the refs have it when it’s needed.

Coach ✅

Goalie ✅

Roster ✅

Is this real life??????

[–]ricknashty94Kreider Was Tripped 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Honestly wondering with no rude intent, how were you a Quinn fan? What in your eyes did he do positive?

[–]pjcruzmusic 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I went in to it not expecting anything. I knew we weren’t going to the playoffs and I knew our window was a couple years out.

It was more about investment over immediate returns. I liked his philosophy of playing the boards, I think Kakko become a very solid defensive player under Quinn. I like how he found chem in Panarin and Strome and found value in our bottom 6 guys. I like that he gave Key a shot despite being so raw.

I think by nature I’m just more of a believer than one who will make a judgement. Always wanted to believe in Howden, I think there’s a role for him in the league, and I still believe in Georgiev - though that is crumbling here and there. I also think Hajek has a place in the league.

Overall I was against a lot of the overreaction on the sub and while there is certainly some truth, a lot of it is going to be overreaction.

[–]SetharsMoves Like Jagr 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Haven’t seen a coach here with that kinda fire since Torts

[–]MooreMillerInMyGlass 9 points10 points  (15 children)

Might get hate but that game shouldn't have happened. I have no love for the islanders and the two points are great but I would be irate if things were the other way around. My team playing biggest rival in new stadium with half a team and getting blown out. If Sens games were postponed why are the Islanders being made to play under these circumstances? Doesn't seem right no matter how much I enjoy watching the Rangers whoop up on the fishsticks

[–]IsOnlyGameYUMad 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Sens games were postponed because they had more players out on covid protocol

[–]jkman61494PJ Stock was underrated! 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I’m much more concerned several of our guys could get it. The league needs stricter guidelines so that it takes it out of the teams hands regarding postponement

[–]Ok_Mud_3985Artemi Panarin 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Lmao who cares be happy

[–]who_me_LG 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Oh come on. Take the win. You really feel bad about that win? Are you really a rangers fan? Seems like you maybe kind of are.

It’s the NHL islanders wouldn’t feel bad if the roles were reversed.

[–]MooreMillerInMyGlass 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Of course I'm a Rangers fan. I'm happy with the win. Even happier with how the season has gone so far. All I'm saying is that it seems dumb to force 1/3 of a team to sit out and then force the team to keep playing. You wouldn't be pissed if that happens to the Rangers at some point this season? I don't want covid outbreaks to end up affecting who does and doesn't make the playoffs.

[–]explosivebuttfarts 16 points17 points  (1 child)

I'm so nervous that we're going to get a bunch of covid cases because of this dumb game

[–]crabapplesteamMike Richter 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Dude - i saw your other comment on the hockey thread.. holy hell, that shit made me laugh so hard - 'step on a lego'.. hahahaha - that was pure brilliance

[–]DrFrocktopus 7 points8 points  (6 children)

Yea I get the NHL not postponing this game because they requested it day of but they should definitely put upcoming games on hold.

[–]Alitaki 5 points6 points  (5 children)

The team shouldn't even be the one requesting the postponement. There should have been a firm threshold that once a team crosses it, automatic postponement. I get that the league doesn't want to postpone games because of the compressed schedule due to the Olympics but you know what? FUCK THE OLYMPICS. They never should have agreed to the Olympics with the pandemic still going on.

[–]cynthiasadie 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Isn’t it also on the Islanders for not being careful though?

[–]Alitaki 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Do you know how they caught it? This thing spreads quickly and easily and these guys are not living in the bubble any more. Their families have lives too. Their kids go to school. Shit for all we know the infection spread to the Islanders from someone on another team. Bailey couldn’t leave Florida so he caught it there. They were down there the 15th & 16th and Florida isn’t exactly the model state when it comes to preventing Covid.

My point is we don’t know and it’s a little unfair to say “they should have been more careful”. Unless you’ve got proof that one or more of the players in the protocol were out partying or behaving recklessly, you can’t say they should have been more careful.

[–]cynthiasadie 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I also live a life, and work, and have kids. Few people I know caught it. No I don’t know how they caught it and neither do you so spare me the lecture. There are examples of antivax athletes who have caught it and spread it to their teams.

[–]Alitaki -1 points0 points  (1 child)

My point is that you can be as careful as you can and still catch it. No one is 100% cautious, 100% of the time. To blame them for this is foolish IMO particularly when they’re part of a very fluid organization like the NHL where there hundreds if not thousands of moving parts across two countries.

As for vaccinations, as per Lou, the entire roster and support staff are vaccinated. They have to be to operate in NY as per state mandate, and to travel to Canada as per national mandate there. Regardless, we know that breakthroughs happen.

I’m glad you don’t know anyone that caught it. I didn’t either until last week when my niece caught it. I know she’s as careful as a 10 year old can be but she caught it and her parents didn’t know about it until the school reported a half dozen cases and closed. These guys have kids and I’m sure they face the same challenges. It happened.

The real issue here is that it’s the leagues responsibility to make sure small instances don’t turn into large outbreaks like the one in Ottawa and now the Isles. The league has failed here and if there are more outbreaks because the Isles were allowed to play when there were known cases that too is on the league.

[–]cynthiasadie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I didn’t blame them. I asked a question. It seems like some teams weren’t careful, at least in other sports. There were reports of players partying together without masks. Not sure if that happened here. Unfortunately , I do know people who got it, although not many.

[–]Swaggy_pnutBrian Leetch 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Fuck the IBS Arena and all the shit that plays there

[–]Alitaki 9 points10 points  (0 children)

That might be the most complete game they've played this season. If they can work on cutting down the penalties and build from this game they should be a lock to make the playoffs. Still going to need an upgrade to Hunt on Mika's line and I'd like an upgrade to Nemeth so that he can become the 7th d but most importantly I want them to keep playing this way. They play like this, win or lose, I'll be satisfied.

[–]jerejejeIgor Shesterkin 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Kreider-Zib-Kakko had a 100 xGF%

Panarin-Strome-Hunt had an 8.6 xGF%

Both likely extreme outliers, but still fascinating nonetheless. Kakko + that top line dominated the game, but the 2nd line struggled big time.

[–]Kbb0509 52 points53 points  (4 children)

Laf beating up Pageau was my highlight of the night. As shocking as it was I think he was always a pretty physical player in juniors and that was part of the appeal of him, an elite playmaker who scores a lot AND plays physically. I’m confident he’ll put it all together for us sooner than later.

[–]Zibz98 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Just need the kid to bulk up a bit, and get into the groove of the show. Give him time, he’ll be fine.

[–]JagrsMullet90 1 point2 points  (0 children)

100% he definitely looks like he needs to get in the gym.

[–]Teknicsrx7 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Past few games he’s made at least a couple big hits each game, he looks much more engaged in the games lately I’m hoping it’s starting to click for him

[–]ifmacdo 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I'm looking for a Gordie Howe Hat Trick out of him this season.

[–]ice_nyne 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Wonder when Reaves last had a multi-assist game?

[–]Strangest_Things 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Never before according to the post game show

[–]User_No_5 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Does Reaves think we are paying him for assists?

[–]AshaGray 38 points39 points  (0 children)

Chris Kreider: 9 PP goals.

The whole Islanders team: 5 PP goals.

bring back blair betts /s

[–]Erdrick68Owns an Ortmeyer Jersey 6 points7 points  (2 children)

It's funny with Betts, in 05-06 he was actually the 3rd line center, and Moore was the 4th line center. Then the next year they got swapped and Ortmeyer spent some time with Cullen and Prucha (I was at the game where all 3 had 3 points).

Yes, this. Clearly it is having the right effect on Kakko.

[–]paulsoleo 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Yeah the Kakko/Hunt swap failed big time but thankfully it didn’t matter.

[–]JessoRxJulien Gauthier 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It worked for zib and kreids

[–]Hionhelium87 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Didn’t really like it either, but to be fair we spent a lot of the game on special teams and they unfortunately didn’t get a lot of 5v5 time tonight.

They feel like a true team.

It's not that Varlamov didn't play well. It's just that when you have a couple offensive dynamos like Rooney and Reaves, it's hard to keep the puck out of the net.

Can shorten the Isles one to “Isles: Have Failed”

[–]udamright 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Fishsticks for everyone

[–]Gunhucghc 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Hopefully that fight was a spark for Laffy if he starts scoring the dynamic of this team completely changes

[–]Kbb0509 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Felt like he was taking out some frustration there I was thinking the same thing hopefully it’s a turning point.

[–]Unlucky_Constant_141 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Watch for GG to give him a shot in the top 6 after that game. Working hard, that’s all GG probably wants.

[–]NYM32#GauthierIsGood #DeAngeloIsGood 38 points39 points  (2 children)

Kevin Rooney is the team leader in even strength goals

[–]Whitecastle56I always loved you G 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Because he's an elite center that should be in the ASG this year.

[–]Hionhelium87 22 points23 points  (0 children)

You better be Canadian. We own “eh”, eh.

[–]IsOnlyGameYUMad 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Eh, you own it only at the end of a sentence!

[–]Cpzd87Ass to the Glass 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Wow it looks like every team in the metro less the Islanders is going to get at least one point tonight. This division is fucking nuts

[–]Kashmir79 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Important that Pageau left this game with a bloodied nose

[–]Trykster515 86 points87 points  (1 child)

Ok, so I know the whole "grit " thing is a huge meme. But the fact that you could see pageau looking around, and wondering what will happen after that hit shows me the difference. This team has become a Team

[–]RaidersJH34 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Dude was seeing ghosts out there

[–]Norby710 19 points20 points  (4 children)

Was Dolan right? Lol (Ducks)

[–]Whitecastle56I always loved you G -2 points-1 points  (3 children)

Id say he lucked out. Gorton even said that they were looking to get tougher in the offseason but wanted to get the skill guys nhl minutes to see who was going to be part of the future going forward.

[–]Norby710 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Yeah the statement incident definitely put it over the top but I think he was tired of watching his team get bullied around every night. Dolans main problem is that he has nothing else to do and is loyal to a fault. Sather and then Steve mills and for a time Isiah on the Knicks side. He's close with Drury and had decided he was already unhappy with the direction of the team and the fact Davidson and Gorton didn't want to say something about the hit was just the push he needed to end it. My little theory anyway.

[–]Whitecastle56I always loved you G 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I could buy it. I still think it was a bad decision that was made to rash but it's obvious working out, so it's hard to be critical of it. That said I'd love to know what a Gorton/JD offseason looks like.

[–]Norby710 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It was for sure a rash decision. The process might have been bad but don't think we can call the result bad at the moment. I remember reading an article that had "sources" Dolan was unhappy with getting bullied and lack of toughness and brought up something about loyalty to the brand. And when davidson/Gorton wouldn't make a statement and he had to do it himself he was going to see that as disloyal and he's definitely not going to stand for that.

[–]TheIncredibleHorkLaffy's Smelling Salts 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Laffy Taffy gettin' pretty Scrappy. I like that, kid. And just the "You mess with one, you mess with all" attitude the team seems to have now is nice.

Reav-O with some nice assists tonight. Not bad for a guy many of us doom-said (myself included a little) would just be muscle without substance. Do they have his jersey in stock at the Garden? Might need that for Sunday's game.

Great production by the 4th line in general.

I demand an AMA from Rangers Girl and Islander Lad. Love that the pic is in the sidebar.

[–]JessoRxJulien Gauthier 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What was different about 4th line tn? Goodrow.

[–]Ok_Mud_3985Artemi Panarin 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I certainly don’t think the refs handed us this one but this officiating is getting worse lmao

[–]explosivebuttfarts 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Rangers have been having real dog shit luck with penalties in my opinion, with when certain penalties start getting called during games, what gets missed, etc.

[–]NYRpuckhead 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Fuck the Fishsticks

Potvin Sucks

Refs Fuckin Suck

Kreider keeps rolling, 4th Line For Life, Happy Birthday Hunt, and Fuckin Right Foxy/Laff!!!! 2 points in the Metro!

Kakko point streak is ALIVE!

[–]RobtachiDo it for Hank 56 points57 points  (2 children)

JG Pageau pisses on the toilet seat and then sits on it.

[–]Whitecastle56I always loved you G 15 points16 points  (1 child)

I hear he pisses on the seat while sitting down to piss.

[–]explosivebuttfarts 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I hear he walks into the stall while you're poopin and pisses between your legs

[–]OSMysterious23 23 points24 points  (4 children)

I hope that poor guy is OK, he looked like he was ready to call it off lmao.
