The goal for the Rangers is to be playing through mid-June. That would not have been possible without last night’s 7th game survival exercise against Ottawa. Now that the first round is in the past, at least some of the weight has been lifted.
Thursday night’s Game 7 was exactly what everyone thought it would be: low-scoring and stressful.
Despite a Rangers win, Boomer still found a few things to complain about this morning. One such thing is actually a person, and goes by the name of Tom Green.
It took a full seven games, but the New York Rangers will not be the second #1 seed to lose in the opening round of the NHL playoffs.
“There’s no better feeling than to win at home,” said goalie Henrik Lundqvist, “so we’re going to do whatever we can to win this game.”
The opening round of the NHL playoffs hasn’t been kind to the Rangers in recent years. But Game 7s at Madison Square Garden? That’s a different matter entirely.

The house will be loud and ready to go Thursday at MSG. I would expect the Rangers to be the same.
The Senators were getting the best of Broadway. They were winning the battle, but hadn’t yet won the war.
With the Rangers getting a 3-2 win, all signs pointed to Boomer being in a great mood. Well I am sorry to report that was not the case.
Brad Richards scored the go-ahead goal and Derek Stepan had a goal and two assists as the top-seeded New York Rangers staved off elimination with a 3-2 victory against Ottawa Senators on Monday night.
The return of Carl Hagelin can spark the Rangers’ lackluster offense into life.
The captain pronounced himself fit to play Game 6 against the New York Rangers on Monday after taking the morning skate at Scotiabank Place.
The New York Rangers know this going forward: If they can handle the Ottawa Senators in Games 6 and 7, they will have this pressure thing down. You will face better teams if you survive, but the pressure won’t be any greater.
