Um uh, first of all, great game.
Were you one of the older ones in hockey? One of the older better ones.
And happy, uh, I want to start.
What do you make us have been? A jet is out for the Rangers today, So, uh, really it gives a kind of an advantage for the Red Wings.
Have not been doing so well lately.
I want to start.
What do you think that the Red Wings can do to kind of attack the Rangers weaknesses today? I think they that with my examination out the way that they have very share, so they would.
But they're still struggling, like really badly that this place they did well, one and maybe they can get past the defense and the rules, But really they're big national focus on tonight.
Iss Keeping the **** out of there yet has definitely been a big thing Um and also they also going to need to get the puck into the opponents that the Rangers net in New York.
Obviously a really hard place to play.
Why they have, uh, these two teams and live in their past.
Uh, in their past six meetings, all of their past six meetings have been within a goal or less.
Taking a look at the starting goalie match of presented by Honda on the always side with the Red Wings.
We got Jimmy Howard, who's 10 3 and three against the Rangers.
Uh, truth gets a percentage is well, 9 40 Yeah.
Ah, Then on the other side, the for the Rangers.
The street Henrik Lundquist in his 15th NHL Season 992nd career game, which is the most among active goaltenders to date are 10 Panera and gonna be a big Gonna supposed to have a big game today.
He's a five game point streak, two goals for cysts.
Uh, actually, you know, you know, I really like that guy.
So, um yes, sir.
He better be a exactly gig.
Here's the open drawer.
Here's the opening drawl, Larkin.
Strom, this one's gonna be won by large in and taken up into the zone For the writer or a Red Wings, Will Lundquist will meet the puck behind the net.
Um uh, Bertuzzi sends it up.
Now it's intercepted by Panera and Panera heading up the ice when air and crushes it to, um Thio.
Strobe, I think.
Okay, you did not behind it at Panera and tries to pick it up.
Uh, Strom Gonna single.
Rennes Room near the, um, goalie Chris tries to get it in a blocked shot.
The best year to find the puck when Aaron gets it.
Uh, well, Vera gets the puck, shoots it up.
Intercepted by the Red Wings.
Now Red Wings gonna clear it all the way down to the other side of the ice Where will be picked up by the Rangers? Last touch by the Rangers.
True, A picks up.
Lying change coming in, Uh, number 70 A shot.
Now the Red Wings Get it back.
Uh, looks like Larkin.
They're getting hit as he tries to get up.
So it wasn't Larkin.
That was number 51 or that is, um Now they okay, the red ones get thio intercepted, but there's a couple people fall down.
Number 89 on the Rangers tries to cross it.
That book's gonna be intercepted then right at the boards on the corner.
Um, are the people teams fighting for the puck register players trying to get a clear to shot? It's blocked, Um, then Puck going back and forth between the two teams behind behind the goal and the board's there now a hit.
Now the Rangers get it back in the Red Wings.
So back and forth, it's probably the Chase here a lot, Um, as there's gonna be a line change and what things teams are really? Well, um, through this first few minutes of this game, it's **** checks on knocking the populace from the opponent and take back.
Yes, regulars get a rush up the ice can't score cross us pass intercepted there by the Rangers defenseman.
Um, Now rig wings fly on fire.
A shot right into the trust of Hendrick Lundquist.
So the shot came from number 29 on the Red Wings.
So what happened here was because I was next I 89 just typical sells his turn to check Capo Kokko, the rookie got to stick in there on the shot.
Made sure that there was no shot, no goal.
Couple ****le rookie had a fiddler and second overall pick ese.
Um, Now face up one by the Rangers.
Rangers try to take it up the ice.
They're unsuccessful there.
But now they get it back.
Going up the eyes, really trying to, uh, more shocking when they're still pop back.
You really like this style of playing both defenses.
That's how they are with him tonight.
You have definitely going to be a heavily defensive matchup to start 6 58 left in the first period.
00 Both teams here in Madison Square Garden in New York now a shot for 29 goes out of play.
There will be stars against another Ah, extreme live games on NBC.
Sports have any time anywhere down also on sports that com slash life or download the NBC sports up.
Give me, um, his previous two starts.
He was actually pulled in both games so he could have toe turn the season around.
Three straight losses for the right and it started class.
Ass player falling down.
Good job putting his body in front of him.
Trust To get a shot.
Can't now Larkin circling behind the net, passes it.
Now it's intercepted guy, the Rangers and Canary is gonna take this up The ice taken.
Erin circles bags back past, um too strongly believe now Stros from looks for centering pass McNair and can't get him a shot Missed from, um number 23 crying. Getting there.
But number 23 Fox.
So now lurking Tried a rather Aaron I think you and and tries to get, but they're stopping to play.
Mark stole the defenseman healthy scratch in the previous failed dreams.
He's in the previous three games.
He's been out Dave Seconds.
Done a great job. This shocks.
Give me Howard Another face off Gonna come with a shot coming from Member States 77 on the Rangers Tony D'Angelo, the defenseman 15.
53 loves in the first quarter Reading Spiral, Get a faceoff win renderings.
Try to bring it up, Rangers Get a bag.
Mostly checking this time.
Didn't quit work.
Yeah, I know you're both teams.
Blacks out, Doctor Trying clear It gets it back.
Rangers now in the offensive zone.
Detroit gets it back.
There's another pope just near to force a turnover shot comes from 43.
So, um, another face off coming up near the Rangers goalie One drink alone.
Pretty women and children.
Pretty even gives a porn. Have any shots.
Rangers win another faithful.
Not really fortunate defenses get both defense.
We'll just have to keep talking about um Yeah, just like the reason why that might be coming again.
Here's a two on one.
Another was shot.
I was gonna get saved by Jimmy Howard and centering pass a shot block.
Compal Kokko had that shot on there.
No number 18 stores shot Mrs Saved off the pad of Jimmy Howard.
Um, shocking for a downside.
Yeah, A lot of aggressive, pretty aggressive today.
Shot was probably passed with Block.
Two shots on goal for the Rangers.
Just one for the Red Wings.
So far, um, self past.
There was pretty nice of them because let herself go. Good job.
Now there's no going back to get it.
No, that another shot.
Howard, say yes.
26 takes off in the first quarter on SportsCastrs.
Hey, Jake had a shot to defenseman Todo play again.
What'd you see, Zack? What did you see in that play? Well, I thought just people on the Rangers Really? We're just like space Smart passing.
Let's get America passes the shots Run this stuff through The Lord in the face I need garbage.
Coward and defense valuable to prevent those That goal in this court senses Ranger if he had a bag trying yet it also clears the ice.
Um, Now Bertuzzi stumbles.
Will gets it back for teaching now climbing up the ace car size past Amata shot glove save made by conquest if you Montas had a good beginning of the year But not so much of the end will be that you're watching was a aki on SportsCastr and 13 42 of the first period.
We're tied years back here on sports hands here.
Uh, right wings had equipment manager or 2000 games or Paul Boyer.
He's done a pretty good job of sticks, look nice and clean it really taking care of his team and their equipment there.
I mean, it's a nice wave face off one by the Rangers this time Rangers trying to clear the can't Red Wings.
Get it? Get it back! Spreading straight, Pastor.
Defensive 17 gets a shot.
Goes behind the net, Mrs.
It goes wide now number 51 gets a pass.
That's come to be up.
It takes a lot more which caused turnovers, Andreas and Knee CEO on there for the Red Cross.
Yeah, that could've been a stick of that.
Could have been a that could have been two on one. Dangerous.
And they're especially with Concho the carpool Kokko Uh, Anthony CEO, passage it up the ice for number 51.
Um, now the Rangers get it back.
Rangers on a one on four.
Dump it off in a line change coming for both teams.
Uh, number 21 waits behind his goalie.
It pokes intercepted Rangers have to vote off sides.
They do that look lazy by the Rangers.
Well, they couldn't know this guy.
Well, he quit because he would have if he would have touched it would have been all sides.
They were inside idea the line.
So now rangers are rather than just also have drinks and often find clear other there reception by the Red Wings sent back all the way behind Howard, where it will be in icing a small break back on SportsCastr face up one by the Rangers So spreading Sorry.
Um now your friend good whatsoever Another shot And someone has large and trying to get it Couldn't now month another shot Montas shot goes wide Um And then zero tries to get it for Bertuzzi.
Can't find him and the turnover now but Red Wings get it back for two z going of the ice past were large in a shot.
Misses rebound Kokko Now kind of help the ice for the Rangers A couple of looking for scroll Strom I decide from all the way around lapping around from Karen to Narron.
Can't he passed Thio skates.
Very cool for the regulars in Just Hold back, Canary.
No, although in his defense zone gets too true.
I believe that's next defensive.
A lot of friends and defensive pressure on him.
Jasper Fats Fast Price to get it for the Rangers.
But instead the puck goes the other way for the, um, right wings Running's passing it behind the net for the Rangers with 13 picks it up.
Oh, it was Alistair's school was nice and turn the snare of weights and gets it away from him.
Christopher and understanding defen*****.
Rather, Redding's keep keep having possession of it.
Another thing that's gonna get really important in this game is stay out of the penalty box.
So far, both scenes.
We're gonna have a good job of that while still saying Physical.
Um, but really, Team go to have a blood.
It gets more power because the other, that's a big advantage.
And you haven't seen you in.
If there's a hard hit that delivers the ring, there's no no coal there.
I don't even know.
No, I don't think so.
Um, Coming into the rebel of the Rangers players, Red Wings forced the clear back into their own zone.
Not going for a line change, though.
Now, coming up the ice for the Red Wings, each other, uh, passed back low.
Can't find anything now behind.
**** 29 could pass the Rangers.
Will someone take backup? Rangers long passed up.
Now a shot from crier.
So a trifle crider goes up wide.
Yeah, I thought I Yeah, I thought I saw something there.
We take a break. Go in.
The first period were scoreless.
You're watching Wednesday night Hockey on SportsCastr and on nbcsn back here on sports Caster.
Rangers head coach.
Three for one home wreckers this year.
Believe Cattle Kokko rookie.
Second overall pick.
Three goes to us. It's five points.
He's been pretty exciting player.
Kind of quiet, though, but making it just defense.
Yeah, he's a shock over the Rangers.
That one going wide off the patio, Howard yet? No.
No penalty. They're not even have delayed penalty.
Girly feel that we're interested with these Powerful is a CZ.
Well, yeah, I'm like, Is this camp so evenly matched? Yeah.
Both teams really coming at each other.
Well, you know, living is putting up to make it around for the past 51.
Tried to get past for the red Lady.
They're, um I can't rangers in their own defensive load.
Waiting for a change is number 76.
Um, it takes it all passes it to ah couple Kokko can't make out of it. I'm pretty sure it was him.
Um, now large in stumbles falls.
No, but Greg wings get it back.
They've been signed month a shot.
Can't send it. Pascoe.
Um, board to Z now against it.
To Monta at the board's Larkin looking for motto.
Couldn't get him.
And I'm sure that the debt, uh, nice Larkin from Lincoln.
There a shot for the neck just hanging there.
Rangers get it back without going up.
The ice is, um, for the Rangers.
Right now they have it.
And you're the boards.
That was No, not another.
No coal there going on three on two is shot from the red wings through the stick fell away.
Yeah, well, it wasn't a penalty because we called It.
Probably should have been that, um Now the shock was Rangers.
Mrs Locks blocked fast shot in thes e o Brings it off a shot from the Red Wings.
And miss what a save By what along Quist? Right place the right time opinion.
Just their center test, But just a little bit too far too personal.
Yeah, man, besides Booth? Yeah, this Who's it for yourself? A shot.
Wait, All those people.
Yeah, but if this face off one by the winters can both teams have had three scoring now going on ways to 13 but well, definitely.
Yes, you Rangers are dominating face off this one, even in his and no probably minutes three.
But there's find the Red Wings signed.
The Red Wings when the face off, bring it up, carrying it up memory for the Red Wings.
Um, a monk list for career shut outs against Detroit.
He has your zero Howard.
Five first stands.
You're going up three on three for the race.
That's the penalties that does. Something happens.
Oh, I think they called offsides again.
Six minutes exactly left in the first offsides.
I'm you know, so far, we'll have this game's going.
He's the backup goalie.
I don't think he's gonna have to come in unless something, you know, like an injury happens.
Or Red Wings, you know, just have a whole different mindset going into the end of the solar system the second, and just start scoring, you know, without like cats.
He tried welcome them. But it is.
I was gonna use this.
Yeah, Howard, I don't know.
Language is also playing, You know, more often, more pressure.
There Ranger defenseman shots, locks flooded, cast shot, blocked something. That's another.
Hey, Christ! Again.
No, I don't think there wasn't it.
You were under him, so I don't think he actually fell.
D'oh! Uh, early, I guess, too.
Can't You? Can't keep a good pass too. Don't like it.
Who will? Clear? Um, we'll end up Isil.
And I think, Well, Tropic fights cancer this November.
Uh, after logic by cancer it dot com go there to learn more.
Uh, you'll drink the, um, color ****yst on NBC.
Did she arrive cancer a couple years ago.
Ah, he's the ambassador for the 2019 2020 Hockey Fights Cancer program.
Check in the booth for nbcsn 1st 1st period for 57 less.
Here's your old Rangers Red Wings, Michael Mercy. Exactly.
Rogers, you're on SportsCastrs coz coaches looking on from the sideline.
We'll take a break.
You're watching the NHL on SportsCastr.
Ok, ready? Back here on sports Caster Michael Mercy Sack Rogers 1st 34 40 sevens.
Your zero left in the first period.
Rather for 57 left in the first period.
Zero you score one and I just will be yet another face off.
Put on a shoot that will end up why there's a safe right, just a follow up shop and pass out to a point.
Pass it across and, uh, yeah, position saved and good past ends up president.
Penalty there because I thought the goalie has kind of moved by.
One of the Rangers offensive players need a goalie interference.
Wouldn't you call? That is now.
Makes it past two by the boards.
When Aaron cast to the little with the show, you look older.
That's that's I think I know the triple point, proving they're splitting the defense.
Your gold shots finally read out of the room is Anthony Hansa.
You said on past the show off the post.
The fall of Shot didn't get a good studio.
Took your work and that won't hit the post.
And so you see, we'll go get it.
Those have your end and he will send it down on Jax.
Guess it and passes to the other side.
This has really been a evenly possessed the game.
Both teams really going back and forth on the offensive saw, you know clich? Fair ladies take it back on DDE.
No exercise close.
I think one of his skates was on.
I even thought it was teammates is inside.
You could be right and down by the boards.
Here three takes it and behind the goal and eight with the past two point position.
Um, Rangers will get it clear on dhe clump again for lunch.
I don't know, seeing those other ego and it said back down.
Then you take it head on and pretty fast and dump it down.
That will be marked as you shot on goal in all the quarters stopped carrying Thio lost in the first.
Still scoreless still even know pilotless for each.
You look, there's a shot off the post.
I thought that was one Nothing.
Red Wings right there.
And so cool that Logan, That is that great puck movement.
Right? I was ready again.
Down low and shaft.
That was what hired by owner Couldn't get it together.
I just won the draw and have it down low.
Keeps it down low when you get to it.
Centering pass no home low.
I think there's off the Rangers.
I believe on behind the back there.
Look past too much phone in no rush.
Uh, no offsides call there, and he has to wait for people to get on the outside.
Line change sends it down.
Bedrooms will take it a little. 35.
Rangers will cover the guy and Larkin ahead.
Lost it center and passed off. Lucky by Trueba.
Truly Jackie's mantra for it.
And it goes somewhere else entirely taken by the Rangers past Panera out of a defense zone.
Learn in the past.
Ends up by the goal.
I got a little cover and was taken back by the red wins.
Howard heard Global.
This is too. Ahn Soo here.
There's the past.
Lhasa couldn't hits the kid a lot of big check if you were talking about a bunch of those causing a bunch of turnovers.
They're both teams and have a job about who shot their blocked ends.
Applied case a minute.
Andre will got cover by the netminder.
45 seconds to go here.
We're looking at Dylan Larkin here, and like a mom who are monster pass and then he just couldn't handle that. Lose.
Yeah, I think we did.
She, uh, give me another stick check There.
So is the checks.
And Cox is gonna be gettinto feeling that book that one goes right on goal off the face off has been passed out.
India 24 into the zone taken away by the world.
Works passed down and off size.
It's called There's 1.
1 seconds to go to schools for I always waited a year ago.
Yeah, Still not gonna happen in the first.
And those who had is it doesn t really heartbreaking for one of the teams.
What we've had is buries a very defensive, you know, blood mattress.
Because both teams really I've been playing well on defense, but put a lot of two on two rushes, but nothing made out of them doesn't seem like there's there's been that many chassis.
There was, like, tens or each team pretty even.
It was 11 shots on goal for the Rangers, just seven for that Red wins and someone's getting a box for this one.
Probably action that the boards don't know if they're gonna put a rush on them.
Maybe we're waiting to see the call here.
Yeah, his highlight Oh, that.
Like you didn't trip.
Did he think you might have? No.
What? No penalty there.
He didn't call anything that looks like, uh, like, uh, something maybe slash our scent Navy.
And yeah, it was a cross check, maybe, Like some former boarded said that down 543 So one and the failures over matched the first period.
An exciting illegality.
Yeah, really heavily defensive matchup will be back in the second period on sports cash.
We're gonna end our broadcast yield.
Make sure check us.
We're gonna do part of the intervention.
Ah, and the second period on SportsCastr coming up shortly on ABC s and the Lexus in our mission report Combo capo.
