In a game where the Rangers scored as lucky a goal as you will see, it seems odd to moan about bad luck.
Calling that a lucky bounce when it was batted in a second or two later is nothing but semantics. It wound up in the net regardless. No Ranger fan in his right mind would come away from that entire event thinking 'Boy, we were lucky there!'--would they? As far as I'm concerned it might as well have bounced in.
