Just want to say this. Obviously we all hate seeing them go out like this.
But what a season.
At the beginning, we all had high hopes, all thought they'd win the division. But they started off horribly, and it became apparent that it just wasn't their this year. But their play since February was outstanding, and I can honestly say that I'm for the first time in a long time, truly happy and proud to be a Rangers fan. They fought hard all playoffs, and I'm excited to see what the off-season brings, and what this team looks like next year.
Lundy was unreal this playoffs, and although we lost, I think we know that he can handle the pressure now.
This team never gave up all year. I think that 3rd period was a fitting end to the season with them battling back time after time. They left it out on the ice and thats all you can ask for as a fan. This team was filled with very likeable guys who were easy to root for. After enduring 10 years of crap its nice to see a team that wore the Ranger sweater with pride.
This was the most fun and exciting season since 1997. Thank you to Tom Renney, management, and every New York Ranger for making this a proud franchise again. Excellent job by the crowd today, especially at the end of the game.
