At first I thought it was the Wonder Years episode where Winnie travels to the future to fight robots. But she is wearing a Def Leppard in that one.

chalk this one up as a L. My friend is going to be at this game and every game he's ever gone to the Rangers have lost. I tried to talk him out of going but he won't have it.

Watch the Sabres, they're in a 4 game losing streak, that's always dangerous.

I know they suck, but Im sure they'll try to bounce back.

They do have something to play for...their jobs next season.

There is literally like a .3% chance we play Boston in round one.

The best way to do that from a skill position is to have a PP firing on all cylinders.

The whole team will have to have everyone giving strong performances. Four players will have to prove/reaffirm that they belong in the Elite category:

Hank
MSL
McD
Zuuc

Underscore the above with the fact that Hank has to be flat out brilliant in these playoffs. He will need to steal at least a few games. Hopefully one or better two come in a final round.

Richards has to prove he's still relevant. Nash and Step need to have their first strong playoff performances. All that happens and the Rangers could go deep. If they do, they will need Kreider's big game abilities back in the lineup. This team is all but certain to be pretty banged up by the later rounds. Kreider could help to off set that.

But for the Rangers, it begins and ends with Hank.
I would throw Nash in with those first four. He was BAD in the playoffs last year.

Absolutely no excuses for this one.

Sabres has nothing to play for.

Rangers have a lot to play for.

I'll say it in a very understandably way:

If they do not win this in regulation, they can all go **** themself. End of story.

Any chance McD plays? Be nice for him to play a couple of games to get into the swing of things before the playoffs start.

The W2W4 piece (p.2) on the NYR home page says this regarding McD.:

"Ryan McDonagh will miss his fourth straight game due to an injured shoulder. The good news, however, is that he has skated the past two days--Wednesday wearing the yellow non-contact jersey at practice--and it would appear he is on track to return in time to take part in the first round of the post-season"

The major concern with McDonagh potentially starting in game 1 of the playoffs is the rust.

They have already secured 30th seed and best chance in the draft lottery, so this will be a dangerous game for the Rangers. People talk about playing for home ice. I am more concered about dropping out of top 3 and end up as a WC and face Boston.

Let's hope these aren't your typical Rangers.
Rangers are very very good. And they are healthy and in prime condition going forward into the playoffs.. I see nothing but a win in regulation for our NYR tonight.

Last I saw they were playing some random guy named Nathan Lewan.

But I think Matt Hackett is in tonight
