That beats it for me

my favorite was '93 in MSG. turgeon's OT hat trick goal that booted NYR from the playoffs and clinched for us.

Another great memory from an Isles perspective. WOOOHOOO

I think overall the Rangers have done okay over the years against our rivals when you consider we've been up against: two hall of fame GM's in Torrey & Lamoriello, two hall of fame goalies in Smith & Brodeur, two of the all time best D-men in Potvin & Stevens.

And of course in between the times those two teams were not great we had to deal with the Flyers & Pens. I don't think any other team in the league has had to face that much in the last 30 years.

That's an interesting perspective. I've kind of always given the Rangers crap for having as many Cups as the Islanders in twice as long a time frame... but you make some good points. The Rangers, especially 1975 on, have had to deal with a lot of great teams in the same division. Even the Capitals of the late 80's and early 90's (Langway, Ridley, Hunter, Iafrate, etc.) were no push over- and probably should have at least competed for a cup or two.

Yeah, can't forget about the Caps, they were always a pain, you guys know

We were brutal for a longtime, but we were run by a bunch of awful clowns. Devs and Isles(and philly & the Caps at first) were thought of as a joke. That thinking actually benefitted them cause the expectations were low and no one was calling for a cup or even the playoffs right away. The Rangers have always been high profile for the simple fact we play at MSG & in NYC. Its hurt us more than it helped, IMO.

8 goals in 45 regular season games, then 14 goals in 15 playoff games.

I was 16 that year. The Rangers last or next to last regular season game was home against the Caps. I went to the game with a friend and beforehand we met Vanbies and one other player outside MSG - John Druce. Right after that my tickets were stolen out of my hand by a scalper. Spent the night at the police station and missed the Rangers losing to the Caps. The writing was on the wall

All the more reason for the Rangers to win tonight!

And correct me if I'm wrong, but a Montreal win tonight in addition to an Islander loss and it's official: Isles are DONE.
