Transcript - will not be 100% accurate

Our number two Dennis gallon. You know off today. Jerry -- take your call 617779. 7937. Got some good news or ranger fan and -- -- that things are gonna change now you're down a mystery. And you get the last change and the Bruins. Have to put the stick on the -- first and face right. That not only that not only that but Ortiz optimistic forty is feeling good. He watched it -- it kills. -- news daily news after watching tape which always helps me. A lot of good much better game in game two in game one I'm very optimistic. About where we're going as a team. -- -- -- -- Given us nothing -- nothing is gonna have a minute think. And about time recovered from the assumed they. 45. What's that you wrote it was a record at some level of laughed when it's unbelievably. In Africa six or seven under 51. And I think he's 2132. Of the last eight years. This is only the second time the first round in this there -- seven games and in eagle test and it's the second time last eight years ago in the first round -- his record over that time in the post season. Is 21 and 32. Via. -- Sox. -- and and -- is forty. Morning when you have 4230 I believe that sings Irish. When you think about it. In public retirement that before this news in the analysts and you know the Rangers better coached and -- Do. What we think that. Because he won a cup nine years ago -- idea what we think that. Because he's brash yes that's one particular reason. And to be fair mean do we know did you know anything about his -- -- billion users that you pay any attention to other than the 24 sevenths right watched that it was fast Simon did you watch the Rangers game and say while this is the moves he makes no but I did. Harp did. Asked the question is do they have the emphasis in the right place they -- a shot blocking team and we Estes. Every time they played in regular season and won him three times. They beat him twice in overtime. Once. Scored a goal once they've been in the -- And you keep that in opinion do that for 45 months can do that every night blocked shots. Get physical gold in the corners. Does that is that sustainable. And I think it's still an open question -- instances since he last won the cup. He checked the first five games the next year the first round in six games the next year. -- he didn't make the play and with the New York. First round exit in seven games didn't make the play first round exit. In. Five games. And then he went in the conference finals last year. And then this year he's gonna get bounced in round two so this whose last two years. The only two times in the last eight years ago the first round and they always have talent that was have a big. Willing to make the deal won't make the trade as we so this year. With with Nash. I don't know the style works -- mean it is. It is commendable. That you say that statement coverage. Blocked shots they work hard physical you can't play for toady. Kirk if you don't block shots I've heard that. Well -- for an entertainment value retiring -- from the series he's back -- banked the puck more. That one thing abuse of power even now. He's off -- an and it's okay calculating and -- I've talked about it. GT gold and scored in you know that. What's his face Agilent stakes in the guys old guys a lion of the fact that this character connected to this thing act like what I mean these guys who would you compare -- so I was trying to come up with a good comparison -- was like she was left I'm not sure it was calculating -- uses drivers unlikable. Or more -- but if he's a lot smarter is a lot better in the spot leaded fuel at times Parcells would do you play this character can be able. Oh no question the ball but he was genuine I don't think he says -- homes -- what should I say. Pierre McGuire credit when these guys didn't press cover sometimes and the Buick after -- -- sort of continued to expand this -- but he clearly doesn't ourselves I think that I think Belichick in his own weight. And quickly guys do -- tied at. But Belichick doesn't revel in his all know a reputation. As being in a tough guy and and so what if he's tough guy. Is he a good coach that this in the good coach in the post season clearly no no mean the it's is now on the issue. You know Mike Keane wanna cup to -- You wanna hire him coach your team not -- And now anyway just signed a deal to coach Russia Russia to use good as we belongs -- -- that -- but -- has got some guys have won. Titles. And not been great coaches. You know they they get this the stars' alignment of the count of the health the health and you know whenever. Brian Billick who won a super bull has not the and it. Chance and you hops and -- -- we'd like Billick but I mean there guys like that. Does it make you a great coach or even a good coach because you wanna cup nine years ago -- It is just finished sixth. Right well I mean -- and he's this he's been another conference final but no what was post cup record is bad. Doing a better coach had a -- going in the series there was a difference in coaching I was probably wash anything was wrong. I -- goaltending was maybe the biggest the two biggest swing has talked about. We're goaltending in the defense for the Rangers and that's why the -- with a series of pars -- -- and I mean I thought in club does it under the radar -- can you think. Of a single. Quote quote quote. -- -- -- But says that I've -- a good I'm I don't I mean just the memorable Wheaties. -- quote we haven't seen a month 24 set of regulating a -- No no I know is he has is one dollar. You know his wife's name sellers. Actually played and laughed again -- looks looks that the flash back in the Simpsons when they shall Omar. When he angered and air as little looks like -- no one daughter and knows what name do you now you know what he likes to dig dude now we know is the offseason offseason this golf. He's younger than -- But I don't think he's -- you know but you know possibly know things about -- we know things about culture we knew things about Francona quote want a championship -- city. You know legitimate when nobody at lax about but he likes that obviously. There's no show no no no I don't think they spot at the ball find the mountains -- the attack toward. Is -- yes it's not about him. I mean it's never about him he's it's about his players and I was one of those right news. I started looking at you know in ways. We know Lucic. Is maddening. In consist Layton and the probably drove Julian nuts. At the end of the year when he went 25 games one goal yes and and just had this incredible -- spelling was the it was the healthy scratch and we know how good in -- to be can be and how much money in them. So it clos -- Either I assume these and it's the same. Behind closed though I'm sure I said he stinks behind closed behind closed or probably said used to think -- and you -- on a ship whatever he had. His say behind closed doors and went public with the Jekyll and Hyde thing which was kind of subtle. Probably shot in his mind at that Lucic does god knows. When he plays he's accordingly does in these it's important to get the most that Lucic right well. What Puerto -- Is. Another is that 2524. Year old Winger now the guy. Underachieving. Same thing doubled on 24 years old Opel under achievers Agilent 24 points in the regular season. Lucic at 27. In on the ball. Did not produce with -- Expectations. Quote says nothing on the -- when I think nothing publicly somehow someway he got. This -- he got the switch flipped on -- good which -- Shiite. Well what did what and forty due -- mistakes. You know I don't know why I wish I could play a wonderful player retirement ceremonies stakes. It stinks he says that seven times he stinks stinks stinks. And then hagel -- game 46 seconds on the power play right if you think it it was a motivational. -- We put among the power play and see how he does what about the for 46 seconds five power play as he did nothing none of them did anything. I'm what Milbury Milbury says at some point of this kind of talent he went with the -- Nash posts and eglin -- Democrat yeah. And said you know you got all these good defenseman and you've got nothing eventually it's about the guy the white port -- -- -- Listen if they were you know. Nine for 36. War and for 36 -- -- well okay fine this guy knows who's talked to for 362. Authors whose fathers 5% sort of do yeah. It's almost like it can be you know you'd -- -- hockey people but yet but this guy is. They were Julian is though we're talking about him he's doing all these right things this this in this. We think he's gone they don't come back down -- right but they did this year and. You know what I think it's almost tangible thing now that he is out coaching. -- units and other you know miss. Misperception. Or miss calculation before the series that the that there goalie was better than the Bruins right. Clearly well -- as a result of their defense better than the bruins' defense not even close ruins of old split them put behind the bench. Quietly you'd say. The Bruins have one that little matchup as well. I mean there's even been there -- these you know long sort of pieces on Julie here the last couple years not a good point I was -- he doesn't talk he doesn't but he deflects. He talks like he's Belichick and he's not saying about me isn't sit down with some -- whoever would write whoever's in and talk them and or follow around the camera Chad does what he eats where he goes where I live scores that I live. Probably near the you know near the garden -- metres I mean details town north then I've never seen him ever restaurant never read about -- you know. Never as it exists. But that's like not cities not it's not about him right would you agree that. It's about to -- it's about forty yes -- -- ever been a more disingenuous quote to order Ellison and don't ask me about me this is not about me because he knew that people and ask him -- -- state and all the things he's done around here -- honestly about me it's not about me he reads everything. It's about how he reads every and that's part of the plan don't ask me about me it's a moment team BS about what you and you know. -- Celtics got its ups got. He's got. -- -- it's -- Put on. And that the big -- -- yeah it just it could see that play out what I was gonna say is -- before -- -- Toward a relic here's his own team play caller call like that like you said he should have done ballclub really quote Juliet. Secondly I think. Like I was saying earlier that all of these goalies that are on these good teams like L lay in and San Jose that -- themselves I think -- you get back up goalie. On the season. More and this is what's gonna show they're going to be atop -- fresh round. Difficulties. Worn out -- wonder about mentally sure emotionally yet but it Roland. I mean like we currently -- that Rask after game two looked like he could go out and play double -- he is like you and good confident. Don't think it's physical -- much as a medical -- -- in only to limit total sock it Lundqvist right. So breast plays as. Today out yesterday off as Albany today. Easy travel meeting to be worn out the start of the game physically no no I don't think you -- physically worn out may be. In a -- lately and Thomas didn't -- -- and every game and -- and and dive and but right now Rask looks -- the mean it's absurd to think he's he's hired. He's feeling good confident looking forward to close in this out he's the one -- this series going into tonight don't really -- strange -- -- -- may have to back you know shut its next two games right now heading into this game. You're more competent to ask that question absolutely. I mean. Lundqvist is one -- -- questions right he's the one with the doubts yeah. Stan in. My shoulder collective. Rodney in in caddie should know my arm I mean after he sucked for the second straight game he got worse. It's amazing. And and you hear from from. Tomorrow. They played well in his mind game two they played well I see it though I know he's talked. Yeah I thought the same way after two parent I felt the play much better in game two. They lost by three Eagles twice at another blow try to game to his was more disheartening rank right happens in one game to -- And the second period you could see him come off the bench -- He's he's -- everybody's fired up to tell this is the dean he wants to play McConnell collapse in the third and what what does that tell you. Which one teams better and how that's that that I wasn't sure about the epic game one as weird as it was right chalked up to -- or anything -- game one -- a blow. Game two felt competitive and in right disclosed -- rights of two very different games came out you know 122 things that in common the Bruins won -- and Lundqvist talked both of them is -- Quite honestly I think the first game. The score doesn't indicate the game we provisional lost but more. Second game the score indicated it does indicate what -- was as far as how we play I thought we played. A much better game in the second game. I thought we four checked better. I'm very optimistic as far as we're going as a team here at. So -- forty entry. The -- torts. An important to -- heard this. The bruins' only had what 27 shots. -- games right that's right five of them when and that's not a good percentage for the of this and a candidate that king Henry. Com but hell no need more shots than that they they won. Going away. Because their goal was much much better is if the Rangers face no team history of the NHL this comeback from back to back to deficits ms. Bruins team is better than. And that's -- she's a group that won a championship. Rask is playing well. Like you said they have to win the -- sent to beat the Bruins four times in five games. And it happens and it's impossible in his second happened well I mean not comfortable. They don't score enough secondly Lundqvist. It's hard hurts her his arm hurts the shoulder. The headline again somewhere shoulder to shoulder to shoulder. I'm -- he does I'm sure no -- of the grown out of the other players refs for anything right mean Lundqvist is Hillary's so. In areas in excuse in this whole thing -- shoulder was bothering him. I don't -- I would muddle the Rangers won one I like long like 10767. Game series. Blow there's a thing as a but the Bruins have been an evil as you say that the -- Is they win tonight the drama is gone they lose tonight you did you know. And Ottawa and Pittsburgh beat themselves up while the Bruins right. Kick back in the black hawks if you wanna go Accra and now what you want them to beat themselves up as the Bruins -- packets is -- I have been about the brewers somehow close this out it would be Thursday night in four games while. -- on an -- but. That it would be but they never do it's -- that they do not make it easy on themselves but. Rarely do they play a team that's played as poorly as the Rangers -- Redmond -- -- -- Toronto. It. Was a much better team played hard and a better goal. -- over the seven games Nebraska has been in this has look for the good bounce back in -- could shut them out be the first time the Bruins in the shadow in. What -- 55 games yeah. But it could happen stranger things have happened but what do you think do you think he's -- to give I don't make this team to beat this team four times I don't game I don't think they can. Utterly impossible 617779793. -- which your culture after break.
