This is having LIGHTS OUT RESULTS (8-1-1), then LOSE POINTS without even playing last Tuesday night, play a desperate Buffalo team on Wednesday and lose 1-0 in a game that was nowhere near as bad as the majority seems to think, then play ONE BAD GAME on Thursday.

What has happened in the East over the past month is almost mathematically impossible. The Rangers, the Hurricanes, the Sabres, the Devils, and the Maple Leafs have all played about .750 hockey and GAINED NO REAL GROUND.

To play as well as the Rangers have, and to see them have ONE BAD GAME that could cost them the playoffs because the Carolina Hurricanes have horseshoes stuck up their cracks, isn't just disappointing, it's border-line ridiculous.
No when you don't make the playoffs, no matter the circumstances around it, it is a FAILURE.

Have the Rangers played well? Obviously

But when you DON'T show up for TWO of the BIGGEST GAMES of the season then everything you did in the previous 10-12 games is all for naught. There is no way in hell you can't have these huge games and not show up.

Imo, the Rangers put themselves in this situation with their absenteeism their last two games. So yes congratulations they have played amazingly over the last 10-12 games, but they still possibly will miss the playoffs and yes that is a failure.

It's not bad luck when you lose because you don't show up. It's bad luck when you lose 1-0 to a bad bounce off your own player.
