I agree that missing a forward or two and/or a defenseman or two shouldn't be an excuse, but there can be situations where injuries are reasons, at least in large part, for failure, and this is one of them in my opinion.

Good teams, good organizations find a way. Should performance be expected to falter? Of course. These is no excuse to be as bad as the Rangers have been.

This does not sound like the Rangers:

They donít quit, and from last season through this season have shown a resiliency in third periods that causes a nervous rash to break out in teams that take early leads on them.
