Your New York Rangers are heading to the playoffs once again for the chance to raise Lord Stanley's Cup in June. Pretty much with the top seed locked up in the Eastern Conference it seems like the Blueshirts will be facing off against the Washington Capitals or the Buffalo Sabers. When the Rangers won the Cup in 94' they won 52 regular season games, right now they have won 50 games with 3 to go. Hopefully history will repeat itself.
Lundqvist is on a roll and seems he is in playoff form. The only thing coach John Torterella has to decide on are his defensive pairings. With the late holdoff of the Pittsburgh Penguins the Rangers are ready to take the Garden ice with home ice advantage in the Playoffs. The Rangers next game is Tuesday against thier biggest rivals, the Philadelphia Flyers. What would be better than clinching the top spot in the Conference against your biggest rivals? Nothing.
