Best Of Three

We’ve been here before.  For the third time in these playoffs, the Rangers are facing a Game 5 at home with the series tied at 2.  They’ve lost a Game 5 and won a Game 5, but in both cases they won the series in 7 games.  Tonight I think the Rangers better find a way to win this because unlike in the last two series, they are not the better team.

I’ve said it before, but it is worth repeating, the Rangers look tired.  I can’t blame them.  On April 15th they started their playoff run and since that date they have played 18 games with no more than 2 days off in a row. The miles are piling up and it has shown in the way the Devils have been able to dominate play in the offensive and defensive zones.

The question now is, can New York find the adrenaline to overcome their fatigue?  You know the crowd will be into things at the start, but if the Devils jump out early, that can quickly change. Someone needs to step up tonight and deliver some offense.  If that doesn’t happen, the Rangers are in deep trouble.
