Rangers Need Just 3: The Rangers have won 18 of their last 19 playoff games in which they scored three or more goals, including 12 in a row. The Elias Sports Bureau tells us that 12-game streak is the longest active of its kind in the playoffs, and itís the longest for the Rangers since they won 15 straight games under those circumstances in the playoffs from 1970 to 1972. A win Thursday night would give Henrik Lundqvist his 41st playoff win, tying Mike Richter's team record.
The Rangers scored 3 goals last night. So 19 of their last 20 games and 13 in a row scoring just 3 goals equals a Rangers victory. Scoring 3 goals a game and Lundqvist in net. That's the winning formula.
