Tuesday night, the New York Rangers trailed the New Jersey Devils 1-0 in the final seconds.  As the Rangers rushed Martin Brodeur’s goal, Marian Gaborik crashed into the Devils goaltender while Rangers captain Ryan Callahan appeared to score the tying goal.  Even though it appeared Gaborik was helped into Brodeur by Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov, the goal was disallowed.  Here’s video of the play below…


Veteran broadcaster Al Trautwig was hosting the MSG postgame show after the Rangers telecast.  You might know Trautwig from his nationwide work with NBC’s Olympics coverage and other sports.  In this case, the broadcast journalist within Al Trautwig was overcome with Rangers fan rage.  His postgame intro begins quite normally before exploding with fury over the “BRUTAL CALL!!!!!”  Then, Al goes back to the normal postgame intro before offering a befuddled groan and shake of the head.  The instantaneous metamorphosis of Al Trautwig is really quite interesting.  Don’t get Al Trautwig angry.  You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry.
