The Rangers blew the Pittsburgh series in 1992. Up 2-1 in the series. Up 4-2 in the 3rd period of game 4. They lost 3 straight. The Rangers blew the Jersey series last spring. The Pittsburgh series was worse.
That Ron Francis goal from beyond the blue line in game 4 is probably the most crushing blow in my years as a Ranger fan.
