I hope so I also hope there is a lot of intensity but fairly clean games as most Ottawa fans are indifferent to the rangers.

But seeing how we both have some physical players I don't see this going very smoothly. Well here's to a good series I am really excited to see it .

Playoffs are a different ball game from the regular season. I don't see a team that has been as consistent as we have losing to a mediocre Senators team unless we just choke. But choking would be caused by youth and inexperience, and not because we faced Ottawa instead of Washington/Florida.
Excellent post.

We heard it relentlessly from Islanders fans how they would sneak in and ruin the Rangers season that year.

As long as we win I don't care how many games it goes. At least we have home ice for at least 3, perhaps even 4 rounds.

I don't want any easy series for the Rangers. Which is kinda funny because you know they will make everything and adventure. A little worried because their last two games were crap and they were less than steller against the Sens this year.

A tough 6 game series coming up with the Rangers coming out on top.

Good luck Rags fans. Never had anything against your team before this series but I feel that will change.

I don't care how many games it takes, 4 or 7, just win!
Some of us on this board is grumpy enough as it is! We don't need a disappointing post-season! Hopefully Henrik will go into overdrive. If there is an organized event or gathering for games planned by anyone, I'd love an invite I haven't been on here long but it's lonely out here in VAN where I know 2 other Rangers fans who unfortunately knows nothing. I've freed up the next 3 months for hockey and travelling so if there is stuff in NYC or OTT for that matter, let me know Thanks

Glad we're not playing the caps though. Same team, different year. Regardless of speculated outcome, I'd very much rather play some other team.

And to think, Ottawa was my Be a Pro team in NHL 12. It'll be interesting two of Sweden's all time greats face off against eachother. I wonder which side people over in Europe are rooting for.

Damn it. The worst possible result.

The pessimist in me says Rangers in 7. The optimist in me says Rangers in 5.

Therefore I say Rangers in 6.

It's been a while Canada. The last Playoff series against a Canadian team was in 1995-96.

Rangers in 4

what i'm most concerned about in the 1st round is the devils beating florida... as long as they can do that, i think the rangers make it to the ECF

The only optimism that I can think of is that I believe that Washington with Backstrom and Green is better than Ottawa. However I'm not feeling good about this series at all. Not only could we not stop them from scoring but the last 2 games against their suspect defense, one against their backup goalie, we scored a grand total of 1 goal. We gave Anderson his first friggin shutout.

Rangers in 6.hit them hard and often and they wont want to carry the puck over the blue line in fear of getting destroyed by a Stralman hip check

seriously,pound their defense over and over.

Not worried at all. The Rangers are the better team and should win this series. Lundquist finds his game, Feds and Richards light up. Rangers in five.
