WTF are you talking about?

Playoffs are such a crapshoot. The best teams dont always win. Sometimes, good teams lose to teams who get a lot of lucky bounces.

Hell, look at Matteaus goal against the Devils in game 7 in 1994...total luck goal. You gotta get the bounces.
But there are certain characteristics you look for in a team that can make a run.

1. scoring from multiple lines. Emphasis on puck possession
2. shutdown d pairing
3. clutch goalie

Rangers are in deep deep trouble with point #1. They are missing 1 to 2 players up front from being a legitimate beast. Other than Gaborik who really scares the opposition in terms of someone you should mark?
