It only took five games for the New York Rangers to knock off the Pittsburgh Penguins, but the series felt a lot tougher than that, because it was. In spite of the fact that Pittsburgh was playing without three key men in their roster, they made the Rangers grind it out every single night. It was certainly not a cakewalk. All four of the Rangers’ wins were by a score of 2-1, two...

The New York Rangers remain consistently inconsistent

After a dominant game one against the Pittsburgh Penguins in which the New York Rangers won 2-1, the Rangers went back to an incredibly lackluster style of play in game two.
