BEST OF MAXIM
The New York Rangers played their best game of the postseason against the New Jersey Devils. Unfortunately, it was a night Henrik Lundqvist played his worst

From Sean Hartnett at WFAN.com:
Alone stands a masked man in white. He is the last line of defense. His duty is to guard his post from an army of onrushing soldiers dressed in red with the mark of the demon across their chest.
Henrik Lundqvist, the man that Rangers fans call ‘King Henrik,’ is faced with the task of not only keeping goals out of his net, but not allowing...
On Tuesday, the Los Angeles Kings turned the clock back to 1993 by punching their ticket back to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in nearly two decades. On Friday, the Devils made sure there were no shades of 1994. That year, the Rangers rallied from a 3-2 series deficit in the Eastern Conference Final against the Devils after Mark Messier guaranteed a New York victory. Messier...

I know it doesn't matter because the Rangers lost anyway, but if Brad Richards would have scored the own goal on the Henrik Lundqvist all his clutchness this postseason would have been forgotten in one historically embarrassing flub......not sure I've ever seen that. If Lundqvist doesn't make the save, Richards sees that highlight in every NHL playoff highlight package...
from Katie Strang of ESPN New York, The closest thing to a guarantee from the Rangers heading into a do-or-die Game 6 against the Devils on Friday?
Coach John Tortorella’s prediction about his star goaltender Henrik Lundqvist’s impending performance:
“He’ll play his best game tomorrow night,” Tortorella proclaimed.
A later line of questioning prompted Tortorella to...
Two previous series extended to seven games and two multi-goal comebacks in their final two games proved
to be too much for the Rangers in the end. The Rangers' season ended without their first trip to the Stanley Cup finals since their last
championship season in 1994, with Devils rookie Adam Henrique's scramble goal 63 seconds into overtime
sending the Rangers...
Sometimes it is just easier to take getting blown out by five goals than to lose the way the New York Rangers did Wednesday night.

With their home arena rocking with the expectation...

It all goes back to the starts.

In fact, this was the worst opening ten minutes of any game in the playoffs for New York, as they handed the New Jersey Devils a 3-0 lead in just the first 9...
The Los Angeles Kings await. But the New Jersey Devils still have some work to do. Sixth-seeded New Jersey is within one win of going back to the finals for the first time since the Devils won their third Stanley Cup in 2003.
