The Rangers were embarrassed in San Jose and then again in Anaheim and the Alain Vigneault era looks no different than the John Tortorella era after four games.
Hockey season is back and the Rangers open the year against the Coyotes in Phoenix on Thursday and that means an email exchange with Kevin DeLury of The New York Rangers Blog.
The Rangers introduced Alain Vigneault as the 35th head coach in team history leading to a Retro Recap of the press conference.
John Tortorella is no longer head coach of the Rangers and if other teams are smart, he won’t be the head coach anywhere.
The Rangers’ season ended with a Game 5 loss to the Bruins ending any chance at an epic 3-0 series comeback.
The Rangers staved off elimination with a win in Game 4 to send the series back to Boston and extend the season for at least one more game.
The Rangers lost Game 3 and will now need to ask themselves something Curt Schilling asked almost nine years ago to extend their season.
The Rangers were embarrassed by the Bruins in Game 2 and face another must-win situation at home on Tuesday night.
The Rangers lost Game 1 to the Bruins in overtime though without Henrik Lundqvist the game would have never made it to overtime.
The Rangers and Bruins are meeting in the playoffs for the first time since 1973, so obviously an email exchange with Mike Hurley was needed to talk about the latest chapter in New York vs. Boston.
