5:19 pm

pacific. darren pang. >> darren: thanks very much. i was told from the new york rangers' locker room at the end of the second period when scott hartnell went up to mike rupp at center ice, took him aside and he said to him, show some respect. jaromir jagr is a hall of famer. i found that pretty interesting. that should heat things up here in this period and see if hartnell gets an opportunity to take a piece of mike rupp. i think mike rupp was having a little bit of fun with it. i was telling one of the new york rangers, interesting a nongoal-scoring player was actually able to have the calmness to take off the gloves and actually do that. >> eddie: he scored a stanley cup-winning goal. >> mike e.: conversation between hartnell and fedotenko.
5:22 pm
this is rattled along for fedotenko. hoping for hagelin. no lug there. it ricocheted back. he has to retreat further. off the stick of giroux. crosses and backhands one. it's fought off. the rebound stop by bryzgalov, as well. >> eddie: good play by boyle. >> mike e.: and van riemsdyk. giroux. battled back behind. van riemsdyk the surrogate jagr. sees this go loose off girardi. coming by with a vengeance was hartnell. no icing on this. play will continue. we had a little bit of snow. i don't notice any just now. it's great cosmetic snow courtesy of jim cantore and god.
5:23 pm
meanwhile, this is back on now to be played further by bourdon. and across for the carry back up. first-year player rolled it in. couturier run in by del zotto. moving in was carle. ripped one and fought off by lundquist. in the skirmish, rangers able to emerge and play it back on. to mitchell. rupp with it. rupp with a shot. he scores! >> pierre: now he's got it here in the winter classic. two goals for mike rupp. little burst of speed. >> eddie: nice pass by brandon
5:24 pm
prust on the backhand. i thought mike rupp had a chance to shoot the puck right away. we have a perfect vantage point. good goal to give up by bobrovsky. mike rupp waited and the puck finds in between the arm and the hip of sergei bobrovsky. down, but not down early enough. not a good goal, but a good opportunity there for rupp to get the puck to the net. >> mike e.: dubinsky led it ahead. callahan popped it loose. off timonen. worked along by hartnell. hoping to get a three-on-two. van riemsdyk will face down. mcdonagh closed it off. over for hartnell. now giroux. giroux fed it back. fires and that one grabbed and held by lundquist. does he still have it? whistle is blown. doesn't matter.
5:25 pm
>> eddie: pushed behind by ryan mcdonagh. there is van riemsdyk in front of the net. a push-off. almost like in a game of basketball. subtle little push-off. shot goes up into the rim. nice job by van riemsdyk. good shop. >> pierre: van riemsdyk and giroux, we saw them in the stanley cup finals in chicago. does such a great job. jagr came here and van riemsdyk. >> eddie: a lot of different looks. jagr still on the bench not playing hardly at all in that second period. you see a lot of different looks. you mentioned the change with john tortorella in that second period. once you get that feel of what's going on, trying to get the right combinations out. >> mike e.: simmonds with a heavy hit coming from del zotto.
5:26 pm

5:31 pm
>> mike e.: marc staal able to chop it along. eventually a stoppage of play. mike rupp with two. brad richards celebrates the tie-breaker right now.
5:32 pm
how are you? we're going to head on into the interview. john, jill...mr. jacobson... what's it like driving the fusion hybrid? you can read every system that is operating by pushing a button. it's like driving a computer. what would be the hardest thing for you to give up? the miles per gallon, the fuel. when you're used to filling your car up once a week, then suddenly once every three weeks, believe me it'll be a big difference going back. >> mike e.: well behind home plate. let's look at the ford update of this game. braden schenn first career goal.
5:33 pm
>> eddie: congratulations. mike rupp one coming in. only played 14 games to this point. he's got his second and third. the goal by brad richards gave the rangers a 3-2 lead. 13:30 to go in the third period. >> mike e.: focus shifts to center where rangers are able to control the faceoff. shifts from defense to offense with a path that escapes all the way down. and icing. the faceoff to come back near bobrovsky. >> mike e.: the gravity of the drama to the players, do they know how dramatic the game is while they're in the midst of it? >> eddie: not when you're in the midst of it, but when you're sitting on the bench and there
5:34 pm
is a tv time-out. your mind wanders. it's hard not to. especially in the venue. once you hop over those boards, focus is one thing. now you'll see when you go out to play with your friends on the ice. as it goes later, intensity goes straight up. >> mike e.: wayne simmonds has been good intensity for his team. >> eddie: he just did on the boards there. >> mike e.: looks for coburn. reaches in couturier. coburn has it. it is stralman. flunk into by danny briere. to coburn a shot. that one out of the glove of lundquist. back across it comes yet again for timonen. battles behind briere there. no luck. goes down on the play. back up and battles long.
5:35 pm
scrappy play off simmonds. rolled it back down. >> eddie: first one in a long time. not a lot going on. they won a lot of battles along the boards. able to hold on to that puck and create some offense. now it looks like john tortorella is going to use his time-out. each team gets one time-out per game. a long, long shift for the guys on the ice. john tortorella decides it's time to give the guys a little bit of a breather. >> mike e.: rangers with a pair by mike rupp. >> eddie: a little bit of a salute. mike rupp, short side on sergei bobrovsky to tie it up at 2-2. richards off the play from callahan.
5:36 pm
the rangers a one-goal lead here in the third. >> pierre: what is interesting here, stepan usually uses a right-hand shot. they are going to use anisimov to get the puck back to the corner. >> eddie: giroux will try to get the puck behind him. nice job there. >> mike e.: reaching in, hartnell. punch back on gaborik. kept alive by coburn. and del zotto for the rangers. anisimov reached in yet again. taken to the outside. ripped back out to timonen. pass so strong he must play center. giroux again. that one is blocked. right back on by gaborik. dropped off to dubinsky. landed on the cross, drive.
5:37 pm
timonen shaken up on the play. over to the bench. is replaced by meszaros. the defensive tandem changed for the flyers here. mcdonagh shot. that forced off on the rebound by carle. another drive -- oh, off bobrovsky and just wide. >> eddie: similar to the shot rupp caught. he got lucky with the shot by girardi. >> mike e.: that one was from callahan a scare for the flyers and their fans here as this go backwards. girardi is after. a check in traffic. they got out of the way of some of the hit coming. >> eddie: he was going to make the hit on girardi. looked like girardi lost an edge. he went in dangerously into the boards. >> mike e.: taken by rupp. ilya going to get it.
5:38 pm
no icing this time. rattled around again. talbot given a good one that time by girardi. ilya turns with it now. rupp and mitchell back out for the rangers. lobbed ahead now. in the corner with simmonds. simmonds again turning with it. that time it was simmonds by prust. led to the back. ilya shot and covered by lundquist. >> eddie: we talked about the physical play between the flyers and rangers this afternoon. mr. is brandon prust with wayne simmonds. center of the back. no chance for simmonds to stay on his feet. there is the icing call going in on dan girardi. >> pierre: just goes airborne. he tries to explode into girardi. any time you drop a game plan to
5:39 pm
play the rangers, to play like danny girardi does, usual ly that's his target. >> eddie: another ice delay just inside the blue line of the new york rangers. there is a difference between you've got to work smart, you've got to hit smart. you can run out of position. just make those big hits because it takes you out of position and you give up opportunity. >> mike e.: the resumption of the game in a moment. it's your social network. all mixed together. with galaxy nexus by samsung, now you can organize your contacts into circles, like you do in real life. so you can choose what people see and what they don't. and with the speed of verizon 4g lte, you can chat as a group in a googleplus hangout

5:45 pm
goaltender for henrik lundquist. a fantastic teammate. >> mike e.: here is dubinsky. there is van riemsdyk. some would argue madison square garden has its own, too. cranked back in off the glass. back up the boards. it is mitchell punching one behind. rupp going in after that. coburn prevailing. getting it back up to hartnell. flies one back across. couldn't come up with that. circling back is rupp. he pitched it back in past coburn to the corner. the two big men go. no icing here as lundquist stops. 7:40 to go third period. 31 shots to 29 in favor of the flyers. it's 3-2 thanks to the goal of brad richards.

5:50 pm
>> eddie: here is ryan mcdonagh. puck behind him. van riemsdyk will push ryan mcdonagh into the net. not allowing him to go and get to claude giroux. they called a delay of game penalty against ryan mcdonagh. not the right call in that situation. no doubt van riemsdyk is the reason the net came off. >> mike e.: timonen worked it further. giroux with it there. roughed up on the board. along to rupp and scaled back out. girardi and rupp together on that penalty kill with the short-handed rangers.
5:51 pm
the last 4:50 of regulation time. if tied, overtime, if tied after 5:00 of sudden death it will be a shootout. if it remains the same in the last minute, you'll notice the flyers goalie with the attacker. fires one. blocked by boyle. held by giroux. saw defending there on hartnell. timonen tries to connect with giroux. second effort, giroux able to rip one across. gloved down in front by girardi. >> eddie: big-time play by girardi. >> mike e.: timonen filledered it back. carried ahead to matt carle for the last 48 seconds of the penalty kill for the rangers. closed off with read.
5:52 pm
read able to get that one, but then that quickly taken on by dubinsky. moving up there with ryan callahan, forced it back in. saw that one cycle back defensively and worked for meszaros. no shots on this power play yet. 3:35 to go in the third period. briere fires it back in hard. rattled on around. carle thrown in after it. thrown around and grabbed by briere. he's got meszaros at the point. what do they do? the shot deflected. it rattled around off the post. into the outside. again, we get a whistle and stoppage of play. you cannot tell in the skirm ir. perhaps the net was dislodged. >> eddie: right there off the side of the post by matt read. the redirect, the puck is clearly free.
5:53 pm
>> pierre: the officials see the left post by henrik lundquist. he comes in and loses sight of that puck. >> mike e.: a philadelphia native ian walsh with the opportunity for matt read. you see the waving of the arms by the official. the puck clearly free. great break for the rangers battling for the flyers. it is at this point that he does not feel any longer the decision s go their way. it is a fact the puck is frozen. >> pierre: second time for a penalty kill. >> eddie: tough play there by brian doyle. so important. critical faceoff. >> mike e.: rangers killed it off.
5:54 pm
we are down to the last three minutes of regulation time. >> eddie: both teams used their time-outs. >> mike e.: defended by girardi who poked it along, but into some traffic. continues the work. rangers get it out to center. moving all over it is gaborik. he got a shortside shot off by bobrovsky. he still got a shot away. >> eddie: look at this speed. acceleration of gaborik. timonen comes over the left hand side. it was the right skate that got that opportunity. puck ends up in the back of the net. i don't think there was any doubt there was no goal. >> pierre: surprising penalty against timonen? >> eddie: right at the end.
5:55 pm
>> mike e.: on to giroux. across to voracek. stepping up with meszaros. ryan callahan. fed out in front. unable to get a shot away. turnaround shot by meszaros connects off the glass. what a way to finish, if this is the finish. or the prelude to continuation to the last 2:10. it is carle. carle drew one. struck away by lundquist and play is stopped. >> eddie: looks like giroux has gone on the ice. >> pierre: giroux is down. hartnell stepped in. >> mike e.: we always ask you about the conversation down at the ice. you heard a number of languages today, foreign and domestic. >> pierre: there's been a lot of
5:56 pm
