Welcome back to first cyber -- -- -- over the bulldogs Robert Ray tube. It's nice right here. That's imply any -- there outside -- From the -- negatives said I'm really gonna miss this. Yeah well I don't know -- it does not end here tonight. Because. I'm going to be sad. And you guys I enjoy being around him and enjoy -- nice everything but. I really look forward to this food and -- Well I I I I get that -- its outstanding. Foreigners and let's hope that it so it's all your series driving the record now and pick it up please because we need to keep beating. -- like the clearing throat now because I get up. That moment it doesn't come of the boxer and I don't -- you -- -- And this does not come from a boxer canvases real branch off. Were you watching the lightning. Yes I did. And you know what I swore -- that something really bad. And I'm laying in bed in my son's side mean my -- the other -- my -- and I -- when they -- which -- sort sort of yeah. Some thirty seconds later my son rolls over and Karlsruhe that would mean he'd just any repeated what they sat at Oklahoma -- -- -- Are -- all. In my -- great there was this ought to -- Okay there's a couple but he was upset duke truly was just tell me how much he was upset on the story to. You'll be funny there may be great you you've got it got room Friday night. Then. Stamp -- scores and rob says something different to being happy and positive than the kid. Totals up again and says the other word again. But they never repeat the good stuff writing -- -- good -- bad that they that they could be the punch line they go back and they say this where were again. I hope this morning wave was not happy how I love I don't know if. Specifically -- Powell often in your career that all you were in the spot here. Mean it made you work -- had over the sabres are but I mean just I can't imagine what are. You're you're donate your interview broadcast you know the team's games that were involved. Here on the radio but same thing -- -- scores and I'm cursing a blue streak and then you know like. Tampa scores to get the lead back -- -- while why. Must it be like for the guys on the team like if there watching it aren't they it's you know other. You're watching it absolutely there watching it because it yeah. Obviously it's something they can't control but they wanna know what's going on there it is there. Go to bed at 9 o'clock it's -- -- wake up -- -- would now where was the next morning that may happen you know a month or so ago -- not now these guys are into it they know exactly what's going on. They're gonna fall it to the -- Ian and break down everything that goes on and probably. A lot deeper than we ever will that be watching it so. And probably together two or you know experience visit as a team so. Yeah it is they watch and and it's an emotional roller coaster we talked about it you know a little bit. It's not only that. The physical side coming out at this point becomes an emotional game two and you've really got to be able to keep that under control. You've got to be able to let things happen OK and then bang it's gotta be gone like for Saturday night. -- emotional loss OK we lost. It was not good. But you can't let that bother you. You did you know that ride home from Toronto that betterment -- on the other side of the bridge and you come home and let's start trashing it over with that and so I I would say more than the physical side. It's the emotional side that really catch you at this point. How much in your mind are the injuries worth in explaining those two games. -- A big especially Saturday night you noticed it but to defense note that it that blog so much ice time. I'm not saying -- cheaper format I thought McNabb and Brandon did a very good job out there tonight I -- together and I thought it was mark -- together because they they are familiar with each other. Go play and I thought they held their own adopted a good job the only thing is. There's players and they can handle twenty plus minutes and there's players it can't there's guys that can play under twenty minutes and be phenomenal. The second they start creeping over that when he minute maybe -- mark. Not quite the same just doesn't handle that you know as well as they would if they were three minutes -- that it's kind of a fine line and it may be hard to understand it. You know from god when he below unbelievable when he and above all what you just can't handle it then. Or not used to put it that way too because a lot of guys that are our start to log out of my face time with these two guys out. Are used to playing them much and it is a big difference when you go from. You know we talk it -- the played on on a third or fourth line the maybe ten to 128 to twelve minutes or whatever most -- -- that 151617. Minute mark. It's a huge difference to tell -- it's -- Kara. Mostly yes -- Karen. Mullah. -- Salter is another guy that I know they they put portable there. It'll legitimately. Jordan Leopold is probably the only defenseman played that game that. I'm not sure booming Babin and that in the minors what they play their but. But Jordan Leopold was probably the only guy that is used to playing that amount of ice time. Yeah I eased up before where he's gonna how are they needed a great job and in it was just. You know it's just the other guys you know when he takes a while -- is right so there tonight in what is tonight is a game where. Hey they've got to under the belt now that they've had to play extra minutes. Maybe enough this they may have you know got themselves in that position where they can start handling that that don't -- minutes you never know. There's -- extra -- -- for the guys that a lot and then there's of also just missing what the guys who are out euphoria -- is power play wanted to tell the ice -- -- like just give out of the zone air often Myers are really important -- oil on Saturday night you didn't see the it was caution. And who is defense first in and we're both true and and so. It takes away from the game play and when that happens when when you don't have Myers and air -- jumping up in the play it takes away from the forwards a little bit too because those guys are they doing that thing. And they know -- -- -- we're we're we're -- popular these guys are gonna be -- topless -- -- gonna become into the net you might be able to hit them as a late guys so. Elated that whole game plan changes when you've got. Those type of demand dynamic players on. You don't agree up. -- and Leopold is fine but actually I want to say this I didn't like seeing him behind the goal line underneath the goal line on the third goal. Certain guys got the blame for that that big goal right before the second intermission trop for the turnover in the goalie. But Leopold you watched that -- he's. Behind the net almost as the puck goes -- he's quickly signaling the official. Like no goals if below the award went at it's made me think about the end of Colorado and in the Montreal game in. And the second period -- Colorado game the same thing happened where -- almost like the guys were thinking that the the -- was gonna go five seconds before it did. I mean just stand up there and just. Whatever you got to do we've got that there I think you play to the buzzer and -- the authority in and sometimes that five -- ten seconds could seem like a minute. And here -- also anticipating that that bug it's gonna go to any -- I India Riley may make a laundry you may do something you would normally do because you're anticipating that buzzer but or you may not diving. Part of the -- because you think that -- it's going yachts go GAAP. So you get married they are unknown but did you teach any young kid played the -- You know don't don't hold up you'd go until that buzzer goes and and then you know you start pressure there that cycle -- Only really hurt it did. Cassie Campbell CBC wrote on Twitter that somebody maybe Hodgson. Skipped an interview and you know she didn't blame him she said it was pretty loud over there in the in the second intermission now. Where you around it. I'm around everything the -- that's not her problem can you confirm that says that it really matters what. While you know women in sports no I'm kidding -- cast his -- which accounts into one of Woodrow. Don't let things happen in the Dresser he annoys you hit it at a point where. It happens all the time as a player you're gonna do it as players -- -- together sometimes the coach has not even need to be in the room and and you know you take control but that's what leaders do and and the you know they let guys don't what's going wrong or or what needs to be done are pushing guys did to do better. That's what you want is guys taken charge of room and then there's other times in the coaches and they're doing it to you know the that he feels they need it. To be pushed her to let know what was going on insults. I think either way. Coach or work or players. You like to see that emotion and I think it should have been a game there was a very emotional game because it was a tough violent situation. That's you wanna see it I would rather see it being noisy there and somebody missing in their view then somebody come around talking about all we've made a mistake you know aware of other you know. Let's move on and so I'd rather I would I rather I was wondering when knowing all I know it's bad sometimes and it is an and the problem is. Is sometimes guys when you get into that situation start taking things personal and you gotta be real careful those situations who. Here you're not picking on but warning note or. Or bring into the forefront in front of the guys because sometimes. It has to be done in different ways and and I think you know the long -- -- can get a feel for what guys you can. Point a finger at more guys you can't. Because you'll lose -- -- don't go the other way they won't they won't push themselves to it to better what went wrong. They'll going to hide so. -- stop -- tough situation but I I've but it happens on the and it seemed fights and Dresser and they've seen coaches throwing stopped. By you know it's just it just it's something that happens. The second it's over okay. Everybody has their down time -- they kind of regroup and OK let's go back out there and and it's just part of the game it's nothing offensive it's nothing. Note to it that somebody's gonna carry graduate when erupt communion Ric Jason Hoffman bill for not doing something. Jason bongos knocked him to sit there and potent be mad at the coach to -- the game he's gonna quote okay. And when that game's over it's over and you move on to the next day so thank you got to have tough skin. Or or you're gonna get lost in in pro sports what what was the best. It'll locker all right but they've been in three times. Not done that weren't. Army and there was icing but how did you happen with just your locker room by carrying -- good. Dean there are lots of fights -- locker the united -- -- -- no been no. It was the defense -- Kennedy dean Kennedy and Kevin McGuire got a fight -- -- and one day and it got so bad that things were thrown in. And chemical are -- the stereo rate up the wall -- across that dean Kennedy in the room the thing explodes over the wall. Oh -- are Garcia fights on the ice it happens all the time. All it used to his not so much anymore now you do it it's all over the world late almighty god -- -- criticize him one way or another it's just it's something that. It's an emotional game and things have win in tempers go and it's frustration at everything but the good thing is if if you can happen. And when it's over it's over you walk away from -- -- going have a beer at lunch with a Geiger the only guy that day the next day or wherever. From that's what that kind of judges what kind of team you have. -- -- -- -- -- talking a lot today about motivation Florida wins tonight they'll be all set in the three spot. Going into Washington. May be the -- the Bruins are all sad thing about Saturdays sabres game in Boston. The Rangers could have little to play for. What do you think that's really worth how much of a difference. Is there with a team that has -- mice or obviously playoff berth. In terms of motivation. -- a team like maybe the Panthers will be after. All those years missing the playoffs if they clinch tonight what will let the little like Thursday. There there's a let down as some we talked about today that if it comes down to Saturday and and and we're tied with word or were ahead of Washington or whatever. Do the Rangers look got to go they would go I have a better chance of beating absolutely. You know because they they they wools. You know a coach can do whatever you guys might not they will realize that and they you know they're gonna play -- they're gonna do they gotta do it. You know there might not be that second effort on night and there might not be you know there may be the can't really ask goaltender related goals ending but it coach can really. Pick and choose who's on the ice and how much individuals play. I could come down hey -- or. I think -- -- Rick and Richard Riordan and whoever needs a little bit harassed here I want to make sure they're ready to go for the playoffs so you know they're gonna be note these guys -- and absolutely because it means so much it would it also come down the city's. To who they're playing. Well the Rangers win the east it's Washington vs buffalo this point -- making their preference down when it only just be about hockey. And where you're going. What's the matter where you're going I don't know. So what do you ever -- -- -- one place or the other you have something different to do. -- -- flap comes then everything else is over with -- also -- dialed in your. It sits point 47 year with the team you don't have that down time you don't have that yet you get it did happen between me -- -- it consists of meetings. Practices. Scrapped by you know I -- The outside world to shut officers playoffs start I I got the hotel and bright that's right that's it it's not possible regional player might. For pearl hotel Washington to a hotel buffalo. Woods and are looking for a real beauty editors are not I've not done enough doesn't it's not because I don't look at. I don't care where Washington of their buffalo rob I just wonder like what are the factors and that is a very -- scenario. If it happens that we have the Washington monument. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But guys. I don't absolutely digital look at it did say the -- look at it okay. If we play Washington in the first okay we've put buffalo buffalo is going to be a little more physical. They got a very good chance of their goaltender could win them games and they give you an awful hard time offensively. They -- circuit and guys back he would and it's a totally different look at a team so. Okay there's a lot of questions there that could make it very difficult on us -- the chance of injuries all that kind of thing. You look at Washington. Okay there's nobody on the -- is gonna hit me. They're goaltending is horrendous. Guy who met him he's probably gonna be -- all might do that -- every dozen whatever. So the chances of them showing up in and being that threat our our art lasts what if the Rangers have first in the league. On the line they've clinched first in the east. Say they prefer the idea play in the capitals which means if they lose they get what they want. Yet they get the president's trophy if they -- What happens well isn't that distract history an -- on the president's trophy never went systemic up. -- so maybe they'll take that into consideration. But I don't think that winning -- presidents' trophy. And each guy making a few extra bucks is worth risking my multimillion dollar players that I'm gonna need for. Four rounds to possibly win the Stanley Cup in that case management makes -- -- coaching yes they make that yes. Well that's interesting. Yeah you want home ice because as an organization its money in the pocket it's the extra games. -- affiliate -- -- atop her sister to be like in its date there a point behind Pittsburgh for home ice and that there are going to be battling yes there's always in the finals of that in that instance but -- the Rangers cents a big deal. Finals doesn't really make a difference in these players that think the same way about all this stuff because they're not always Smart. -- As each other I don't know did you vote themselves and -- deceiving and other things that they say they go to the locust you're not. They don't look into things and read it and think and it and experienced it and know what's rated what's wrong course. I -- -- -- -- on time's up derby at Weber in you figure yes and who comes out. -- -- comes aren't allowed to go there and wanted to go from wherever you -- out to Robert boys. I don't know why. Alcoholic the FIA I think he probably got actual letter you -- boys. Coming out if for -- -- hey this is really more harsh and wannabe but police is just useless player in this team. You know had a tough time he just he's not scoring he's a score it doesn't score is not gonna -- or can I tell you what he's such a nice guy. -- hard to beat down on them. -- and and given the set a tough time in the northern himself but he's a nice guy. I know I don't need them federated. But I like try I'm losing oil I think if I gonna pick I think I'd rather have props. Energy -- -- quit operator rate now two and take boys out. You know what you want Kirby. The idea haven't derby made with -- for little often it's you need the offense -- it is the other side of that it would drop that down there and -- spots and that's what made it a lot of that's a move read. Moderated Aaron I think downstairs cut I've well we have put on the board for sort of the -- export OK I think you're out to meet now any. I'm going to be on the road we'll have to call you guys. Are doing it right I'll be missiles to that will be with the beast all right how well. How about the ranger capital thing and the lineup what's.
