Lets look back to 1994, shall we?:

There wasnt a single Rangers fan who wasnt nervous about playing the Isles in Round 1. They matched up well against us, they were always a pain in the ass, and a year prior went to the CF after upsetting a 61-win Pens team

22-3. Nuff said.

Next round was the Caps. The Caps beat the Rangers in 1990 and 1991 in the 2nd and 1st round, respectively. They had a scary offense and the best group of PMD's on the league.

That series was over before it started. It was a blowout, really.

The CF were supposed to be a cakewalk -- 6-0 against the Devils that season. No travel. A rookie in goal for them. The entire series was a home game for the Rangers.

Then all of a sudder, Richer became Guy Lafleur, they lose Game 1, and the beginning of 17 heart attacks over two weeks began

Moral of the story -- be careful what you wish for.

Now, It felt so good to eliminate those teams. And it will feel equally as good to do it to any teams this year. You think the players are worried about the Caps?
