As posted earlier did anyone really think the Phlyers would go to the Finals last year after beating us in a SO to get in? It's all about a hot goalie and the right match-up, the Flyers got favorable matchups against low scoring teams Devils #19, Boston #30 and Montreal #26.

I don't expect the Rangers to go to the Finals but they could exceed my 1 round expectations, they do play "playoff" style hockey but I'm not betting the house on it.
I feel as though if we can get one more good goal scorer this team can make some noise. As presently constituted I don't know how many goals this team is capable of scoring in a very defensive game like a playoff game is. I think as BB said, we may be one sniper, and one more vet D-man away from making some kind of noise.
