It's only the second time since the 1970s that we won 10 playoff games. The only other time we were this successful was in 1994 when we won the Cup. Hard to believe that we went 32 years where we won 10 games only once, and making the ECF only 3 times (the other 2 times we lost 4-1 in the ECF).

That's pathetic, to be honest. The 1997 team won 9.

Isn't it the third time since the 70s?

No. We went to the Cup Finals in 1979. Then we won the Cup in 1994. Then we won 10 games this season. From 1980 to 2011, we won 10 playoff games only once.

But if you say "since the 70s", that means you are including the 70s, which I should correct myself and say four times, I believe.

"Since" means after. For instance, when someone says, "this is the most points the Rangers got since 1994", it doesn't mean that we got more points than in 1994. It means that of all the years after 1994, we got the most points.

Since 1994, how many times did the Rangers win the Stanley Cup?

They haven't. You don't include '94 if you're using the word "since".

What? Let's say I rearranged it and said, "Since he was elected in 1978, he has been the President," wouldn't that be the same?

But **** it. Let's stay on topic.

Not necessarily fighting. Engaging in intellectual dialogue about the proper usage of a preposition (not an adverb) .
