One More Win

The Rangers are leading the Penguins 3-1 in their playoff series and heading home for Game 5. It was almost exactly a year ago that Pittsburgh was leading the Rangers 3-1 in a playoff series and heading home for Game 5. It’s important to remember that as the Rangers haven’t won anything yet.

My biggest worry is that the Rangers keep showing up flat. They did it in Game 2 of this series and got beaten and they did it last night, but escaped after a brutal first period. Luckily for the Rangers, Pittsburgh didn’t take full advantage of a team that seemed to be skating in circles for the first 20 minutes. The Rangers somehow emerged from a period where they managed only two shots down 1-0.

I don’t think they will get that lucky again. Pittsburgh has way too much firepower, and if the Rangers come out flat tomorrow they will pay for it. And if they lose Game 5, Pittsburgh gets to go home and play for Game 7. And if they go to Game 7, all bets are off.
