When the Rangers lost that playoff series in 1992 to Pittsburgh,I left for Europe two weeks later....I didn't return until Labor Day.

Graves got suspended for slashing Mario Lemieux.The slash happened in game 2 but he was allowed to play in game 3 in Pittsburgh.The Rangers beat Pitt in game 3 to take a 2-1 series lead.The day before game 4(on a Friday),the NHL suspended Graves for rest of the Pitt series.I went camping that night and poured.The next night it poured on the Rangers who had a 4-2 lead in the third period of game 4.The Rangers were on a five minute PP and did nothing with it.Pittsburgh had the momentum and then Ron Francis beat Mike Richter from the parking lot to make it 4-3.The Rangers lost 5-4 in OT when Messier went up the middle with the puck.Pittsburgh picked it off and it ended up in the Rangers net
