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 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.
The Rangers are now the class of the NHL along with the Blackhawks and for the second time in a little over a week, we get a potential Stanley Cup Final preview.
There are 10 games left in the Rangers’ season and the next three weeks will be the difference in the Rangers making the playoffs or in me hate-watching the playoffs this spring.

Glen Sather made the one move he’s absolutely had to make as Rangers general manager: extend Henrik Lundqvist.
