The NHL had not decided how the playoff format will be set up after the first 2 rounds.

The Rangers played the Flyers in the playoffs 5 times in 6 years in the 1980's.

Rangers/Flyers
Rangers/Islanders
Rangers/Caps

Those were the playoff series. 1-4. 2-3. Winners play each other. Winner played the Adams Division winner(Boston,MTL,etc.)in the Conference Finals.

In the 1st season of the current format(1993-94),the Rangers played 3 Patrick Division foes.
