The Bell Centre has been the Rangers "House of Horrors" the last few years, but last night it was taken to a whole new level. Not only were the Rangers outplayed, they sustained injuries to key players that may have literally ended any chance the Rangers have of making the playoffs. The first was to Ryan McDonagh, who according to Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record likely suffered a concussion on the play, when Max Pacioretty boarded him badly behind the net...
