4 Games to go.
 
Just curious to see how ya'll are feeling about our chances. Do we bounce back or fall flat. I think we take at least 3 out of 4 and squeak in there as 7/8th seed.

Win v/Atlanta
Win v/New Jersey
Win v/Boston
Loss v/Philly

IMO.

Where's the PO poll when you need it.

Rangers go 2-2 with wins over Philly and Atlanta and losses against both NJD and Boston to end the season.

AND

they piss the PO's after failing to score on a shootout goal.....again

:shakehead

This weekend is huge. Obviously the Rangers are not responding well to pressure lately, so if they come out of this weekend only 1 point up or in 9th, I kind of feel like they blow it on the homestand. If Philly takes the early Sunday off again and the Canes can lose one this weekend then I think the Rangers will have enough cushion to eek it out.

GregNYR19 04-01-2011 12:59 PM

i dont feel good about this last. they also got rocked by the isles....just when they need to win bad, they get embraced

I Am Chariot 04-01-2011 01:06 PM

I think they can do it. Can't imagine how they lose these last two games.

shutout by the Sabres backup

blown out by the Islanders

Rangers do have to earn it.... they missed the playoffs on the last game of the season last year in the shootout.

That's 1 point.... they missed by one point. You'd think they would muster up something better in these last two games...

They CAN do it. Will they? Tough to say. They could be in the midst of a colossal choke.

RangerFury 04-01-2011 01:21 PM

This weekend will determine who makes the PO and who doesnt. If we beat philly i think we'll make it.

Fitzy 04-01-2011 01:22 PM

I'll give them 2-2. 1-3 would not surprise me.

2-2 makes it so Carolina would have to go 4-1 in the last 5 to pass us. With their schedule, I will take those odds.

BlueshirtBlitz 04-01-2011 01:33 PM

2-2.

I REALLY hope they can beat Philly and Boston this week. I'm going to the Boston game so I ESPECIALLY hope we win that one. :laugh:

I agree with who ever pointed it out the other night, it will come down to the game with the devils.

It's time for the young leaders on this team to look each other in the eye and ask some tough questions.

Do we really give a damn? Can we really play for each other?

ColonialsHockey10 04-01-2011 01:39 PM

I can't believe it has come down to this again. Nobody in hockey is more tortured then Rangers fans.

Yeah. Seems like they make it pretty tough on us. But when I look at how young they are, it's a little easier.

I'm not making any excuses for them, but sometimes young means not getting it. The importance of maturity and experience can never be over stated in any endeavor.

DoTheBlue 04-01-2011 01:59 PM

Not sure how it's actually going to play out game to game but you just know it's coming down to 4/9.

Rangers play the devils in the afternoon. They'll either need to win that game or have Carolina lose later that evening. Stock up on the alcohol now because you're going to need it for the next 8 days.

Yeah, I really didn't want the Devils game to matter. Was hoping we could even give Hank the night off. Guess that was wishful thinking. lol

I agree. I'm hoping for 2 and 2 and a couple of CAR losses. I don't expect much from the playoffs but not making it would be a major disappointment. They've had a surprisingly good year so far, the playoffs would be a nice reward.

NYR Sting 04-01-2011 02:26 PM

Be wary of the Devils. You know they're going to want to play spoiler.

WhipNash27 04-01-2011 02:34 PM

Carolina has 10 points available. Rangers have 3 points on Carolina. That means they need a combination of 8 points to clinch.

Sat 4/2/11 at NY Islanders (the Isles will lose on purpose)
Sun 4/3/11 vs. Buffalo
Wed 4/6/11 vs. Detroit
Fri 4/8/11 at Atlanta
Sat 4/9/11 vs Tampa Bay

Loffen 04-01-2011 02:34 PM

Rangers, I am dissapoint.

Not exactly the easiest schedule. Two back to backs that include traveling on the weekend mixed in with a game against the Wings. I still think the Rangers get in but I'm an optimist.

EEDAWGZ 04-01-2011 03:11 PM

lets just hope we don't face any of those teams back ups , we should be fine:D

free0717 04-01-2011 03:42 PM

Time to Panic.

I love my team but I dont have confidence. Probably comes from the years as a Ranger fan

EEDAWGZ 04-01-2011 03:48 PM

Its all good we seem to play better when we respect our opponents, which is probably why we have trouble beating lower ranked teams and average goalies. I am confident the Rangers will bounce right back

Puckface NYR* 04-01-2011 04:08 PM

I wish i was more confident

RidinwitdaKING 04-01-2011 04:10 PM

we need 5 points in 4 games
