We’ve Been Here Before

I take a bit of solace in the fact that the Rangers appeared dead after going down 3-1 against Pittsburgh last year. They overcame that deficit with only one home game. They certainly appear dead again, but this time they have two home games to get to the next round. That should be an advantage.

But, they are simply not playing well. Rick Nash has disappeared, though to be fair most of his teammates have as well. The defense is making too many dumb plays and the offense isn’t doing enough to overcome them.

Yet tonight is Game 5 and I still like their chances. I think they come out and take control of the game. They probably have to hold on tightly in the later stages, but I think they get back to Washington.

That’s when the real challenge will happen.
