Welcome back doesn't Callahan 6177797937. In anticipation of game one between the Bruins and the Rangers at the -- like Arnold joins us on the AT&T hotline AT&T four GL TE good morning mr. Arnold how are you. Patient is perfect or yeah this is not gonna be -- to street tonight is that it's going to be you got that up pay a price for every inch on that ice I suspect. Yet -- -- -- -- all -- first seven games I think it'll likely goes seven games latest thing it's gone. This is not going to be you know beat the Edmonton -- Wayne Gretzky hands -- I but. But -- you like old time hockey like rock them sock them robot hockey Bruins and do very typical like this hearing a lot and low scoring right. Probably it's hard to picture either of these teams not imploding. Defensively. With the Rangers are so good defensively to begin with they've blocked some shots and if you do you went through Hendrick Lundqvist it's one of the rest -- on the and I. To correct it and -- -- -- -- I think -- pretty cut and ironically that Syria better yet and Lundqvist. Is it safe to say dale that they'll be a rookie defenseman on the ice at all times for the Bruins tonight. Think that -- out that the defense Eric yesterday at practice at veteran and a rookie on all repairs. And you know it's. It's a war of attrition that is the -- a player ought to really don't have much option right now. I will say that I thought -- house -- especially an animal and acquitted themselves reasonably help. Try to get a chance or -- we've seen him in a Bruins uniform or. Up pretty skilled gates really welcome offensive skills similar support cows in that respect a little undersized which worries me a lot. Considering of this -- your opposition all right but certainly -- -- and to deal. If you make your case for the Rangers dale is it blog course stores that the defense of their off for the Bruins. A lot of just try to get back into three straight hitter he's. To get rid of the -- you leave us I am tired. I got three straight. And include. One with. -- and you know. A little battery and it speaks as simple way for a as the Rangers play. The same argument been made about grow until the year you know Tim Thomas wasn't as great as the system made him look. To correct isn't great at the system makes him look at helping out with like you know in the -- defense system at. I think what it takes advantage. Based on what's required to play in -- -- system is it a destination a lot of you know I'm restricted free agents would. Embrace and say oh yeah that's where I wanna play and that's how I wanna play the game. I you're not cynical we all look at this -- generally speaking paycheck is the biggest floor. Up playing -- Big Apple is below in the -- for a lot of free agents. I I think that the quarter rail system probably are on the list of -- you or about. If you think that had a chance to win and they probably do given how could -- organization as. I don't think defected or guerrillas in him after a play art or yourself from from a stop it and keep you away. Is there -- more frustrating team to play against in the National Hockey League dale I read where they -- 776. Shots. In the regular season and in their seven game season seven yes seven game series against the caps they blocked a 161. Yeah I mean what they do it in and they're good at it but. The Bruins actually played reasonably well against them this year date they actually struggled for -- bigger chunk of the seat them until they get their trading deadline make over. -- -- Certainly didn't think this was a team that was gonna be one of the last eight -- the in the National Hockey League. But I haven't done without their flaws but the look you're good at that part I think it's -- Bruins are frustrating seem to play against as well then you know surely comments about -- the fact that they are designed to Wear you down over the course of a long series I think are a lot to that the Bruins took. Are relentless in their physical pressure but people aren't yet and the Rangers several at this and other problems also -- -- What we hear of this is going to be very physical news. -- violent intense heavy series but to explain this to me dale the New York Rangers in the regular season. Were last in the NHL in penalty minutes Toronto was first. We think we're going from not a finesse team but I had less physical match up to a more physical matchup. They were they they don't fight and they don't take penalties. Jerry that that what happened was just to see why aren't they realized that they -- up an upbeat they're they've made that the -- -- at the trading deadline a thought -- -- from San Jose. And there's a chance he's not going to be able play in this series but. Bank got in because -- physical presence. I -- paper at a at a play against. And then the trade that they made with Columbus where -- -- -- -- for the Blue Jackets. Pick up more impressed art. It. That it was again made to make it correctly copper. Property to play against. At Toronto Maple Leafs are for just this physical it's not more. But I think part of that if you get to the next round now you're. Standing in the NHL. Score and get a little more if you make it for the final or it probably will be more physical Billy adult. Are you probably be playing the Pittsburgh Penguins that you don't necessarily think of them as being picked physical thing. Do you think there's any chance we see marks stall. Or -- architecture. Yet he tried to play one game in the last series. And after the game pretty much I think all the Rangers actually actually I I I just can't see our. -- -- sure he was having trouble seeing where guys were common from a different angle. Or something -- -- that it fruit or something you can place -- and 00 shoot about doctor and I -- her charm or talking to you guys get -- all we can play well and hopefully you know just get it right up blocker like. Get -- through and I dependency right then and I think it. Give everything he was probably Smart to realize what the limitations or right now I hope it's not long term and I idol but he's going to be able to get back to -- -- was. You know at some point right now architecture it's going to be able to play through that. You have an idea any feeling for which Lucic we see show up tonight in game one. Up probably the guy who when they important scored the goal to make -- to. When they when they -- by the bench. At this as look in inside according to eyesore on the bench and he looked to the bench and he said that's bleak and walk yeah. And in other words we aren't done yet we're not stop them. Yeah and -- -- like you guys and any data you are sitting up there in the studio and I've ever and the guy. Will his team to win and the way that you each get pat probably -- Chara and Bergeron -- that -- but he just decided there was no way to balloons. Look at this like a couple of games for a couple periods earlier. I can electorate at all lied about -- he never makes it easy on the insult our. I think that at at this -- -- in the entire first round series against the maple leaves the -- was right. The apple -- was terrific through the entire series -- it -- how -- -- -- -- force in the first seven games playoffs. He took it to another level in the third period on Monday night and lecture. You know as Jerry said he's right I'll do that every ship every game. But you know -- come to realize. When he played a certain way he has good experience in the NHL of the art power forward is concerned -- -- right. Our understanding is conditioning understand he rays have a choice about it is there's some concern that Chara might Wear down here's a post season goes on playing these minutes. Now I thought. I'd you know I know chariot that question earlier not the piece of five -- each. He's not like any athlete I've ever seen they had to say that I was or in the Bruins organization that at the pre season test again at all. -- OB. Let's stop and was sky blue -- a number off the charts. And then Chara came along and little short off the charts. And I'm being the -- you know he has got to Wear down at some point but if you had told me. After the first sixteen of the Toronto series he was going to be able to cut out what I saw from from him in the seventh game I would have believed it was possible. The guys in the realm aren't taught him from a conditioning standpoint from all will -- stand point. I don't know where he gets it from I don't know how -- be you know it but thanks all again it was to date period between games -- -- -- What what's the minutes limit Kenny playing forty minutes if they asked them to. It well how about then if things get experts say it's tied in the third period in his five minutes left would you go -- -- -- check or. We just and does that depend on how -- Euro 00 -- -- plays. I wouldn't be surprised if you were about at all one goal game try to protect a one goal lead -- -- ten minutes left in the third period. If they dropped it down before defensemen. And basically -- out there every other shift I wouldn't be a bit surprised I I. That capability. It's a pretty rare but -- but he somehow find a way to get it done. -- looking at all the matchups that every publication has put out a winning you concur with with any of these forwards edge to Bruins or Rangers -- Defenseman. Ed Rangers or Bruins Rangers goaltender -- we know the answer to that. Gap but it does that get agency saying yelled at Lundqvist is right he can have a great here and he did not deserve to be one of the street as an trophy final here. I -- deserves to be world finalist out of one what he kind of got on reputation. Certainly what we're gonna let last year. Coaches -- Bruins or Rangers or on special teams. Wash I need -- that great on the power play right out Oprah pretty good generally speaking a pretty good at -- probably less concerned. I I think at that point probably -- I'll watch for me. Well as Johnny most used to say this is going to be Iraq -- ethnic and it starts tonight and you like the Bruins in seven dale. -- And implement he has got the Rangers in the sweet penalize the rough six game a 66. -- -- you say the that five or six. Yeah I pick one and what do you say is that. Pick against on the way -- -- -- -- game seven. Besides it's hard to sit there on the set. You know knowing that you picked the other ignorant and you know hopefully make it look like idiots and are not -- -- the majors and that's -- Ask -- to eat -- a hit my second year my first year with a double. I would blown by by like Larry Brooks was white collar and -- what might -- or events is why what and a bit surprised it happened jaunt or Ellis -- We'll talk to him at 925 thanks for the conversation bill enjoy the game will we watch IRL. Arnold doesn't tell met him on the AT&T hotline AT&T -- LTE. Big news breaking -- we have big big story. What dale put an improvement I thought -- would at -- time we -- have -- that a certain. And Barry Melrose to have all the black and gold gear to -- and yeah. On the or you bumble -- suit when you have them that he's significant on -- Lundqvist is not an early riser. That's not true you gonna -- -- You can get move that cost him -- I -- view is that the stare summing up to -- at 10 o'clock. I do if you do what it's time -- -- -- -- go after on the do the other things in my -- suit what's the point we're supposed to wake Lundqvist and that gets up at 11 o'clock my sources -- a real yes I wouldn't be surprised the late -- companies sleeps. CBS news Boston Marathon bombing suspect left a note to. In the Watertown boat. Joseph Carr left a note. -- and now only comeback left that note. With like in blood on the wall. He he he wrote a -- it out on the inside of the -- All of wall of the sales he went to UMass Dartmouth and guess and it was grammatically correct no mister no no mr. -- whatsoever will tell you what with in the -- what was said. The water from Jon Miller from CBS news on that subject when we get back.
