...more games that the New York Rangers must win in order to capture the 2017 Stanley Cup. As someone who has rooted hard for the Blueshirts my entire life, a half-century that has seen them win exactly one Cup, I shall be disappointed but not terribly surprised if this season proves, again, to be one that ends somewhere short of a championship.
Whether that proves to be the case remains to be seen but as of this morning, the Rangers are still standing and preparing for the start of the second round of the playoffs. On Saturday night, they rallied from a 1-0 deficit in the first period to defeat the Montreal Canadiens 3-1 and close out their first-round series in six games.
Four wins down. Here is to hoping that they have one dozen more in them.
