Hartnell is definitely on fire! I will admit that. I like how they were giving out Hartnell wigs at the games!!! Haha

I see I am indefinatly in the minority here. I happen to be a Flyers fan and have been since they came into the league in 1967. I was just a kid then but I watched all the time because my dad did and I had no choice. I am especially a fan of Scott Hartnell. and not just because he has been on fire lately but I loved the long curly hair he had when the Flyers got him. GO FLYERS!

I must say that the game was exciting to watch! Living in Philadelphia (NOOOO, I am not a Flyers fan...blech), it was difficult to watch since the ref's were favoring them. However, I am glad to see that the Rangers overcame the bad officiating and won.

I think the refs that called the "Winter Classic" were UNPROFESSIONAL!
No, the refs would NOT call things that "weren't there" just for RETALIATION; BUT, they MIGHT become "whistle happy" & call things that in other cases; they MAY just turn their heads on!
It's over now, & I sure won't lose any sleep over it! emoticon emoticon

Yeah, he got fined $30,000 because he questioned the leagues and NBC's integrity. I thought it was kinda funny. He apologized to everyone. Don't picture it being too much of an issue going forward. Refs would lose their jobs if they're calling things that aren't really there in retaliation. I think the NHL blew it out of proportion.

I just read that John Tortorella got in trouble for his post game "comments" that the refs wanted the game to go into OT. Hey, THE TRUTH HURTS! The calls WERE lopsided; ESP. towards the end of the game! The calls were RIDICULOUS! He actually should NOT have SAID anything about it in the media; bc NOW the refs are REALLY gonna give the Rangers a hard time & call EVERYTHING on them!

I thought it was a great game . . . but I definitely agree, the refs seemed to be favoring the Flyers. But I'm very happy the Rangers won, and I enjoyed the whole game.

That was an exciting game; but it seemed to me the REFS had a little money on the Flyers! They made a few VERY QUESTIONABLE calls against the Rangers! I'm glad they won!

Apparently they moved the start time because of weather . . . but it will definitely affect people trying to tape it. I feel awful for anyone who is not at home today and had already set it to tape or DVR . . . they're probably only going to see the first hour or so.

I guess weather considerations are the danger of playing outdoors . . . but it is a little frustrating.

Some people are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO inconsiderate!

The START TIME of the game has been changed to 3 PM! I hope anybody planning on taping the game is aware of that!

That's frustrating.

I looked into getting tickets, but between the cost of tickets, the cost of committing to get there (I don't drive, so I would have had to take a bus or train), and possibly a hotel room for a night, I couldn't afford it.

Oh well, maybe next time the Rangers play in the Winter Classic we'll both get to go!

I'm a Rangers fan too, and I was THISCLOSE to going to the Winter Classic. I decided at the last minute I was going to go, I live in Georgia, so it was going to be a trek but a fun trip. I ended up deciding NOT to go because a co-worker has jury duty next week, so I didn't think it was appropriate to be gone for a couple days when he was going to be gone also. So, I decide not to go and then he walks in and says "Oh yeah, jury duty got canceled a few days ago. Forgot to tell you." AUGH! By the time he told me that it was too late to get time off work. What a bummer...though my seat in front of my TV is a lot cheaper and a lot better than the seat I'd have had at the game, but the whole idea of the event surrounding it was why I wanted to go. Oh well.

I'm loving 24/7. Just wish it focused only on the Rangers :)

Anyone else really excited?
I kinda wish I was going to be there (I'm a big Rangers fan), but I'll just have to settle for watching on TV.
I've been watching a little bit of the HBO series 24/7, which follows the two teams leading up to the game, so that's gotten me even more excited.
