They rebounded by winning 7 in a row.

They had a bad game today. Point is, a lot of our players haven't been playing this year, meanwhile a ton of Boston's key players including Seguin, Bergeron, Chara and Rask have been playing all season. The Bruins looked like they were in midseason form and the Rangers have to learn to integrate new players into the lineup. We might start out 4-6 or 3-7. But that's okay. They'll make the playoffs and be primed for a deep run. Relax. It's just one game.
Last year's team overachieved. There's no proof this team isn't just playing up to their true abilities.
