The Rangers crumpled under the pressure from 1992. Leetch missing 2/3 of the season didnt help.
The Rangers won in 1994 because they had no goalie controvery, Leetch made a bigger commitent to defense, and they made the larmer trade.
The Larmer trade changed the season around. They were going nowhere before that trade.
The sad thing, for those of us who remember, is that the Pens series in '92 slipped away when Ron Francis scored from the moon. That horrifying goal doesn't go in, the Rangers win that series easily.... Remember when Graves slashed Lemieux so bad he broke his arm? Ahh the good ole days.
