I'm over road playoff games. Really over it.


Mrh1987

Hoping in a day you're over playoffs period. Good luck though. May the better team win

Looks like I'm breaking out the Justin williams sweater. Let's do it again for dad! GO canes!

juicepouch

Send out a bad player in the dying minutes of the most important game of the season, excellent plan


hojbjerfc

I mean, Gallant does it anyway so whats the difference 😂😂


nyyforever2018

Yeah, this would be insanely dumb unless someone is leading by like 4 goals


Fa1thPlusOne

What a terrible day to have eyes.


Carbohydrate_Kid88

This can’t be a coincidence. I can’t understand how Carolina can go from dominating to being dominated


idleniko

7-0 at home and 0-6 on the road, it’s crazy how they look different when not playing at Raleigh


Carbohydrate_Kid88

I really just can’t grasp how that happens. Like if they’re close that’s one thing but majority of them aren’t. Like I knew fans can give the home team some energy but


465554544255434B52

they forgot the safe word


PurpleOperation

Sea cucumber


sentry_87

Canes been starting shit after they lose all series. Why the F do you think Reaves is always out there at the end.


jrod_62

Because he's not good enough to be out there when it matters lol


Mrh1987

He's a goon and must fucking pay! Says canes fans after all the shit goonery only their team initiated. Sorry our deterrent gets under your and your players skin so easily. Take more slashes and less shots on net and see who wins


Ndoram

Love Tyler Motte


NeoLoki55

At least TNT has a postgame show.


GMenNJ

Watch the MSG one


courtmin

Reaves going after kk is just bitch shit at the end


Mrh1987

KK initiates this with the first slash. It's caught on camera. Lose your "he's still in the west on Vegas terrorizing my failure of a team" shit and focus on what actually is happening🙂


courtmin

Wcf, what a massive failure


Holiday_Comparison12

Reaves is 10x tougher than anyone on you bitch ass team.


OkCoomer876

Dude your team is full of pretty boy softies. You can't handle any of the teams in the east.


courtmin

😴


OkCoomer876

That's exactly how I feel when I watch the west play.


Skyeagle1

Do you really think the battle of Florida and this Carolina series were more entertaining then the avs/blues and battle of Alberta?


OkCoomer876

Blues one was good, but the Canadian one sucked. Flames looked like a completely different team in the playoffs. But regardless of what happens, the cup is staying in Tampa. I am certain of it.


Skyeagle1

We’ll see about that. And I’ll agree with you about the flames, but that series was still much better then the battle of Florida. That series was a complete let down.


courtmin

Antarctic level take


BroccRL

Dude could’ve headed to the locker room but chose to stick around, reaves is just playing his role


Spcone23

Gallant understood Reaves at Vegas and understands him now, can't hate on Reaves being effective at what he does.


[deleted]

[удалено]


BroccRL

He was skating in the opposite direction of the locker room


courtmin

Like I’m all for him being out if anything happens but when he’s starting shit it’s a no from me


BroccRL

Ok then you’re fine with what he was doing, kk and smith were skating toward the scrum that happened as the last seconds ran out and reaves got between them. He’s saying fight me or go home, and that’s not homer goggles, that’s just what a good goon does at that point


courtmin

So you chose not not acknowledge reaves two handing kk’s ankle


BroccRL

I mean you see that shit all game between players. In this case sure it’s reavo initiating shit, like I said he’s saying fight me or go home


Mango_120

Motte is a treasure


hojbjerfc

I keep Motte over Copp anyday. Rooney Goodrow Motte is that line that wins you cups and Motte can be the type of player like Fast or Blackwell that Panarin loves as his RW


esp211

Copp will cost a bunch especially after these playoffs.


DirectorIsaac

If Gallant gives him minutes he can really turn it up. The type of guy made for playoff hockey. Gonna miss him a ton.


AaronQ94

Well damnit game 7 again.


BigShoots

Fuck I hate-love this stage of the playoffs. We get spoiled in R1 with at least 2 games a night. I want to watch another game now!


FireVanGorder

Igor has more points than TDA


esp211

TDA is such a bitch. He took a terrible penalty that negated their PP.

I said fuck DeAngelo, but fuck ESPN too. Good night everybody on r/hockey, fuck you if I don’t like your team <3


83837477575

I don't remember Reaves being such an ahole as he is now when he was with Pittsburgh, didn't watch many Knights games, so can't speak to that. It's pretty much all he has I guess, be a big ahole who uses his size to bully players after the whistle. Whatever.


Reddit040

What game are you watchin?


Mrh1987

His bias against one man and ignoring the actions of an entire team are on full display. It's sad how many man children can't control their emotions over one person they hate and turn a blind eye to everything else because the villain must pay. Too many fake superhero movies rotting ppls brains keeping them from maturing, or at least opening their eyes to reality. Also the account is all numbers. This is a karma bot who is likely looking to sell his account once he accrues enough karma. So let's pick a hated player, not even watch the games, and comment on something emotionally triggering for the weak to upvote and make this person money. @Mods I would look into this account


cerialthriller

Guess you missed the other night when the rangers won and the Canes came out slashing people after the buzzer which is why they’ve been putting Reaves out for the last shift the past few games


syllabic

pretty sure he's only on the ice at that point in the game to make sure nobody takes a whack at any rangers players


Sterling44

Must have missed the last two games the Canes lost and tried to start shit after the game. There’s a reason he’s out there at the end.


claire303

He was definitely an asshole with Vegas too. Fuck Reaves.


Holiday_Comparison12

Fox > makar bozo


OkCoomer876

Colorado is a soft team, so it makes sense that toughness makes you feeling uncomfortable.


claire303

So edgy


OkCoomer876

I just remembered why you hate Reaves. You dont like that he roughed up pretty boy McKinnen and made you guys play golf last year. Fortunately for you, Edmonton is just as soft.


claire303

McKinnon is a soft pretty boy but you’re the big tough internet guy? Got it lmao


Mrh1987

Not trying to interject but if you think Maroon won't do the same this year you're crazy. This is playoffs as sad as it is to say. With the current regime entrenched and bettman getting 5 more years it's not changing either. At least you have someone willing to wear the mantle of bad guy for you. All teams need at least 1 this time of year 👍 Ps: your bad man even took out someone. Already ahead of Reaves this year. What are you complaining about when your team also partakes? Pps: your poster children run heads too but that's not to be mentioned right? Stop pretending hockey is peaceful and your team is innocent. Welcome to the Grey area where whistles go away and dops don't give a shit called playoffs!


claire303

Me: Reaves is an asshole You: Gets big mad. Writes novel. Chill dude, go take a walk hahah fuck


OkCoomer876

McKinnon is a softie compared to the big boys on the east.


hojbjerfc

Just really proud of how this team has proved everyone wrong all playoffs. Even if we lose this was supposed to be the boring one sided series and once again everyone was proven wrong.


ImmortalHitman720

I'm beyond satisfied with how this has turned out. A very young team who hadn't won a postseason game in 5 years. This is all gravy right now as far as I'm concerned. Incredibly proud either way. Just going to sit back and enjoy the ride.


USBrock

Yeah. Lots of salty pens saying we’d get swept. Good stuff guys. I’m proud of this team either way.


OkCoomer876

I saw a Tampa fan who was saying Carolina win in 5. Glad to see that he ate his words.


KidVicious13

Why does Reaves always try to start shit at the end of games? So people will realize he was ever on the ice?


fosiacat

so how many months you been a hockey fan?


KidVicious13

I’ve been watching for a few decades actually. But not long enough to have seen the Rangers win a cup.


esp211

Canes were playing dirty all game. What game were you watching?


KidVicious13

Show me the dirty plays.


esp211

TDA shooting the puck after the whistle? Aho ripping Trouba’s helmet off? Want more? Are you new to hockey?


pedroreloj44

Have you heard of Max domi?


KidVicious13

Lol at least he can play, unlike Reaves.


ccafferata473

Yeah, he's been the difference in this series lol.


Shreeken

Why do the Canes always try to start shit at the end of games when losing? So people will realize they were ever on the ice?


KidVicious13

Pretty sure it was a Rangers player that had to be restrained at the end there.


Reddit040

Have you been watching the rest of the series dude!??


KidVicious13

I have. Have you ever watched playoff hockey before?


Reddit040

Please stop. If you’re bitching about starting shit after the games over then you’ve been watching playoff hockey for less than a week.


KidVicious13

Have you seen how many Rangers fans have cried about the exact same thing?


esp211

If your bitch ass players just skated off the ice there’d be no issue.


BroccRL

Common practice is to head to the locker room at the final buzzer after an away loss, thought you guys would’ve figured that out by now


KidVicious13

So the appropriate response to that is to jump a guy?


BroccRL

Clutch your pearls harder, if reavo wanted to jump them they wouldn’t have still been standing at the end there


KidVicious13

Yea, no shit. And that’s the only thing he his good at. And the only reason the Rangers picked him up is because their panties got all in a wad after Tom Wilson tuned up half the team.


BroccRL

Wow I’m glad you at least understand *something* about hockey


aduom

Takes two to tangle. You haven't watched any ranger games. Reaves is always on the ice at the end of games to make sure nobody does anything.


KidVicious13

Yea, Reaves was definitely the peacekeeper out there. Totally didn’t have to be bearhugged by a ref.


aduom

Exactly. He doesn't attack unless provoked


BloodySanguine

37! My goalie made 37 saves!


jexxie3

Better still, 2 assists!


Zer0flames

In a row?


insert-originality

Try not to make saves on your way to the parking lot!


philotic_node

He certainly played a good game. I was reeling at some of those saves at the end of the first


ryank1996

StORm SuRgE


Spcone23

God I miss Reaves, curious to see what happens in game 7. Carolina didn't really seem like they wanted to play hockey, more or which to just throw tantrums.


13gendarie-1

Did they not fade your flair yet?


Spcone23

I think it's certain icons.. I'm not sure it's intentional.


_HiWay

Was similar in Boston series, unraveled a bit in a couple away games then had it going as soon as the home game started.


Spcone23

I'm here for it either way, I'm a neutral at this point and just love hockey.


nhgoan25

Can either team win on the road?


esp211

Rangers had a good chance game 1 for about 40 minutes then crumbled. Lost to an unlucky bounce in OT. Anything is possible


eltree

If a team can, I feel it would be the Rangers. Shesterkin is playing at a level that can steal games. Raanta is going to need to shrug off this game.


OkCoomer876

It's probably not gonna matter in the end because neither team is getting past Tampa.


Carbohydrate_Kid88

Vasy is a brick wall right now I can’t argue that. They’re gonna have a tough time beating him if he keeps up. He’s really hot right now and is a really big reason Tampa is still in it. Despite all the stars they have I think 4 of the last 5 games they’ve won has been because of Vasy. They had that 5-1 route against Florida, but every other game was pretty close and game 7 against TOR was kinda down to the wire. If he keeps playing like he does, whoever wins this will have trouble getting by Tampa without a doubt. It can be done, but they have to solve everything about Vasy because he’s just unbeatable right now


eltree

A lot of people counted out the Rangers for all the circumstances they faced during the Penguins (No Crosby game six, facing a third string goaltender, etc.) yet here they are taking it to game 7.


rhythmrcker

I guess, but do you think the Bruins were particularly good because they did the same exact thing. Bruins are competitive but only have like 1.5 forward lines worth anything. If Rangers win then ill give them a little more credit but taking the Canes to 7 doesnt feel that impressive.


OkCoomer876

Definitely and I am pulling for them this series since I hate the canes. But let's be real here: Tampa is just too good this year. They clean swept the Panthers, Vaskeleski lets in absolutely nothing, and Stamkos is playing lights-out and their defense lets absolutely nobody in their zone. ​ Rangers are a young team though, so regardless of what happens next, they're only going to get better from here. I would love to see them win the series and then get some experience with the Stanley Cup champs. That would give them a good taste of experience that they soo desperately need.


eltree

Panthers big stars didn’t show up in their series, and regular season series they split 2-2. Both Rangers and Carolina won their regular season series against Tampa. Rangers went 3-0-0 (one win being shootout), Carolina went 2-0-1. Out of the two teams, I think Rangers would give them a better run for their money due to Shesterkin.


NeoLoki55

No.


Mango_120

Taking round 2 to game 7? I'm not complaining!


insert-originality

But my heart is


Esqueda0

Bro. ​ ​ ​ Same.


Gumbo-Jones

Not denying the fact Reaves is a terrifying man, but he acts extra tough after the buzzer


OkCoomer876

Surprised that one ref was able to restrain him. He is proof not all refs are weak haha.


Pace2pace

Looking forward to game 7


CardiacCat20

I wonder if refs get pissed when they see Reaves is on the ice in the winding seconds of the game because they know something is going to happen


esp211

If Canes just skated off the ice then there’s no issue.


CardiacCat20

For the record I'm not even saying it's just on him. Its either he's gonna hit someone or somebody is gonna try and hit him... Dependent on who won lol


esp211

But again, Rangers won big and if the Canes simply take the big L and go home then there’s no issues. They didn’t.


CardiacCat20

I think you're missing my point lol. I'm not blaming Reaves or anyone else for anything...couldn't care less about a post game scrum. I just wonder for the refs if it's kinda like when I worked at a grocery store and you see some person walk in 5 minutes before closing with a cart, you just wanna go home but you know that's not happening anytime soon.


aduom

Like I said to someone else. All year reaves has been on at the end of games to make sure things don't happen. You gotta provoke him or he'll stand down.


en_travesti

Exploding *into* a powder keg?


antennamanhfx

Do the rags remember what happened the last time they tried to get physical? Lmao. Edit: Did Tom Wilson touch you? Show me on the doll where he touched you.


Holiday_Comparison12

Kreider was tripped. Enjoy the long rebuild you bozo


antennamanhfx

First overall, I'll enjoy it thoroughly. I've seen my team hoist a cup in my time, so there's that (maybe you did too). Krieder wasn't tripped, no amount of rags copium will change that. Enjoy elimination :)


Holiday_Comparison12

Lol why would we cope? We won that series in ‘14 and we’re watching our team play in the playoffs with a young and exciting roster.


antennamanhfx

Because I've never seen a fanbase so delusional and go to the lengths of gold mental gymnastics to claim "kreider was tripped by emelin", to the point where there's twitter threads trying to discuss the physics of how he would have fell. The only other fanbase that's possibly worse are the goobers that come out to defend Scott Stevens for his head hits, or Tampa bay fans in general. Disclaimer: My hatred of the rags runs so deep, that my uncle (die hard rags fan) has about 60 days to live, and I *still* hope they get fucked sideways in game 7.


Holiday_Comparison12

Sorry about your uncle, at the end of the day it’s a game and family comes first. Either way was cheering for you guys in the final last year (especially if the islanders were there)


antennamanhfx

All shit posting I've done aside, I wouldn't mind kreider getting tripped by Hedman, and into vasy, and then you guys face Edmonton. Would love that series to be honest. Oh, and fuck Tom Wilson. Let's bond on that one. 🤜🤛


Holiday_Comparison12

Agreed, shit talking is fun. But all that aside, I’m enjoying this run, who knows what happens in game 7. Gorton is a good one and he’ll do a hell of a job for your Habs. I agree fuck Tom Wilson, also fuck the leafs, one more thing we can agree on.


Holiday_Comparison12

[https://www.reddit.com/r/rangers/comments/64ti23/just_a_reminder_kreider_was_tripped_sorry_sour/](https://www.reddit.com/r/rangers/comments/64ti23/just_a_reminder_kreider_was_tripped_sorry_sour/)


antennamanhfx

Tripped so hard he fell skates first! Also, how does it feel to have a team full of so many pussbois that Tom Wilson ragdolled a bunch of them, even when outnumbered LOL.


Holiday_Comparison12

Feels pretty good considering Tom Wilson is out 6-8 months and his team is out and the rangers are playing playoff hockey!


Lone_Crab

Reaves is on the ice so that Domi doesn’t take a whack at a player after the buzzer like he did with Lindgren (Just coming off an injury). Also Aho and half the team going after trouba when that was clearly a clean hit? Canes only send the goon squad out when they know the game is lost.


antennamanhfx

Oh I know, I love it. I hope they murder each other. Both teams can get fucked, but I'll never stop roasting the rangers. Ever.


beefwells11

[Is this what you were referring to?](https://youtu.be/Au4A8aESnag)


yearightt

What an irrelevant clip. Wilson won a cup while this plug watched from the presser lmfao


davidsthomas94

Lmao refs were like somebody get Reaves quick


Sgt_big-dong

It’s alright. Canes will toss them game 7


tlmw2001

if we can come back and beat shitsburg we can dig deep and beat the canes


kyuuketsuki47

I hate to say it but the Pens were a second rate team compared to the Canes. Beating the Canes will be huge, then it'll be a goalie battle in the ECF. Honestly though, with the way Vasey has been playing I'm not sure anyone can beat the Bolts right now...


tlmw2001

If it's not NYR I have my money on the avs. In response to your first point, the pens might have been a second rate team but they still had dangerous superstars of which the canes lack. That's what really hurt us. If we can play a complete game we won't have to worry about crosby/malkin plot armor bullshit. I believe this is our game to win or lose


t3450

lmao the linesman's like no way Reaves.


RawCyderRun

someone's gonna get shivv'ed on the ice monday night


rczales

Can't wait for game 7 where we see an immovable object(The Canes at Home in the Playoffs) versus an unstoppable force(The Rangers in Elimination games)


knobcheez

I'm kinda fucking ready


nyyforever2018

Even more so is that these two teams are ridiculously good in Game 7s. Carolina has won 6 in a row, the Rangers have won 7 of their last 8. (The one loss was to Tampa in 2015)


Skuubasteve89

Fuck you and I'll see you Monday

Game 7!!

Either that ref is freakishly strong or Reaves wasn't really trying to get away there lol


philotic_node

It's more fun to believe the former


BooshBot86

That was a hold me back situation


QuiGonJinnNJuice

Why the fuck are these losers trying to go? What are you proving after the whistle after you just got embarrassed? What is fighting Ryan reeves going to prove? Fick this team


esp211

Did you even watch the game? Canes were taking cheap shots all game. All they had to do was skate off after getting their asses beat but they hung around being bitches.


MandoRuffian

He was literally calling the Canes out in his post. You secretly Ryan Reaves?


QuiGonJinnNJuice

Yeah uh the Canes are the losers being fake tough tryign to prove something after the whistle after they got embarassed, you'll get no disagreement from me. Cant' stand fake tough for a team that's shooting themselves in the foot repeatedly


MegaBoomBassPort

Smith was scared to death of Reaves.


Biden2012

I’ll never say Smith is scared of anybody. Has danced with Tom Wilson and even gone after Chara. Guy is fearless


Dont_know_where_i_am

Smith went after Chara a few times. Might not make the smartest choices, but he's got balls of steel.


KGX075

Shocking! Canes getting tough after the whistle…AGAIN!

Hold me back! Hold me back! No really please hold me back I don’t want the smoke.
