The Rangers have persevered all year and have been the model of consistency. The are the highest ranked seed remaining being #1 in the East and #2 overall.  It's been said many times that the first round of the playoffs is the hardest regardless of the matchups and that has proved to be true with Vancouver, Boston and Pittsburgh being eliminated. The road to The Cup is the most brutal in sports and I hope my Blue Shirts are up to the task. The character this team has exhibited all year would indicate that they are.

You're at home in the venue of all venues. Kick Ottawa's butt please !!!!!!!!!

The Rangers are 3-0 in previous Game 7s at the Garden, defeating the Devils in the first round in 1992, the Devils in the Eastern finals in 1994, and the Canucks in the Stanley Cup Final in 1994,

With early elimination of Vancouver, Boston & Pittsburgh anything can happen in this year's playoffs, so who knows what to expect. I'm just hoping for the best. LET'S GO RANGERS!

Excellent series against the Senators. Both teams left it all on the ice. King Felix came up big in games 6 and 7. Great to the see the Rangers win a playoff series. They haven't won too many over the past 10-15 years.

Capitals will be another huge challenge in round 2. Then, if they are fortunate enough to survive that one, either NJ or Philly awaits...and all this just to get to the Cup, let alone win it. There are no playoffs like hockey. It is simply beyond grueling. If you can win the Cup you will have indeed earned it!

all season long. They never made things easy all season so why should they start now?
However, when they play their speedy, hard forechecking game they can stifle the Caps. Rangers play best below the offensive hashes and if they can keep the puck low they can dominate.
Throw in the fact that they have the better goaltender, a young star in the making in Kreider and a lunatic coach who will not let them stray from his gameplan and they should be able to get past the Caps before meeting up with the Flyers. That will be the NHL's wet dream!

The Caps have won 6 of 7 7 game series when they lost game 1. This is going to be a real battle every step of the way.

Similar to what Kovalchuk always does and is doing right now in NJ. The Russian style of play seems to implode in NHL playoff hockey. And look what those two did in the Olympics.


How about the Kings ? wow !  For the most part i am an Eastern Conference fan but they sure do look tough.
