The Rangers would be in a position of literally deciding their first round opponent. If they win the shootout, they'd play Buffalo. If they throw the shootout, they'd play Washington.
In general, when teams don't knock their potential first round opponent out when they had the chance, it ends up coming back to haunt them (or at least it feels that way).
