It is always amusing to watch the people on the ledge after a loss like Tuesday’s. The Rangers lead the league in points, are second in regulation/OT wins, and have the fewest regulation losses in the league. But yet, when they lay an egg against a playoff team like the Devils, fans start jumping ship. It’s really funny actually.
The hockey season is a roller coaster ride. Sure, the Rangers haven’t looked strong in their past few games, but Tuesday’s loss was the first time the Rangers didn’t get a point since February 21, a span of six games. They went 4-0-2 in that span, getting 10 of a possible 12 points. And this has been in a span that everyone has noticed that they aren’t playing their ‘A’ game.
A win is a win is a win. Not every Stanley Cup champion looks perfect in every single game. Only the Red Wings manage to appear perfect in every aspect of every game. But yet, the Rangers are ahead of them in the standings.
This team is built for the playoffs. They have the best goalie...
