But yeah, I really don't want to play Buffalo. I'm hoping they climb the standings to #7. Give me Ottawa instead.
Buff are a little scary but dont underestimate Ott either. Any series will be tough, if we play the way we can we should be successfull unless these teams have playoff mania against us.

For me the biggest difference is that with the way the D and Lundqvist have been playing I hold my breath every time a team gains our zone. Every time the friggin worst offense in the league gained the zone last night, I was nervous.
They're not a great comeback team except they do comeback sometimes

Guess what? There's no such thing as a "great comeback team" in today's NHL. Ever notice how when mentioned on TV pretty much every team has a great record when leading after 2 periods? That's b/c comebacks after two are pretty rare overall.

They are a decent come from behind team when they're losing after 2, but not when they're losing by more than a goal. Yesterday were points 4 and 5 on the season that they registered when they were down by 2 goals or more. Compare that to the Flyers.

Out of curiosity, how many times have they been down by 2 or more?

What really amazes me is the amount of hand wringing that goes on in our fan base, LOL.

Comes from years of disappointment.

The good news is that the Rangers have looked a lot better in the past few games. They've slowly reclaimed their own game over the past few weeks.

As long as they keep improving, they'll hopefully hop into the playoffs at full speed.
