The Barstool Sports New York blogger joined me to talk about everything Rangers and the Henrik Lundqvist era.
Even without Rick Nash and Ryan McDonagh, the Rangers keeping winning
Every Rangers-Flyers game feels big, but Sunday’s Rangers-Flyers game felt a little bigger. It felt a little different than normal and a little more important than usual.
The Rangers’ season came to a devastating end in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals and now it’s time to look back at the season and ahead to next season.
The Rangers have become familiar with Game 7 and now they will play one for a chance to go back to the Stanley Cup Final for a second straight year.
For the third May 13 in a row, the Rangers have a chance to win a Game 7 and extend their season and they’re looking to do it in comeback fashion once again.
The Rangers’ five-game win over the Penguins in the first round felt easy despite the four one-goal wins, but things aren’t going to get harder against the Capitals.
The Rangers have a huge advantage in the first two games of the series against the Capitals and they need to make sure they use their layoff and rest to win.
The Rangers have never been a team that performs well with expectations and this spring they will play with expectations they haven’t had in 21 years.
The wait for the playoffs to begin seems like forever, but the Rangers are set up perfectly for a long run into the late spring and that makes it worth the wait.
The mentality has changed for Rangers fans thanks to the Stanley Cup Final run last season and now this spring it’s Stanley Cup or bust for the Rangers.
