Unfortunately for the Rangers, they are about to get a much different story than they had in the first round of the playoffs. They fell behind 2-0 against the Washington Capitals in the opening round, only to storm back and win Games 3, 4, 6, and 7. However, this time around against Boston, they’re finished. We just don’t like what we see right now out of New York. We don’t like the confidence that G Henrik Lundqvist is playing with at the moment. He still has only won three overtime games in his career in the playoffs, and he is coming off of a total dud of a game against the B’s on Sunday in which he allowed five goals, two of which came in a brutal third period. The Rangers do have a real opportunity to at least get back in this series, but we don’t see it happening. The front line for Boston is playing significantly better than the front line of Washington ever was in the first round, and that’s going to make all the difference in the world. Once the Rangers fall behind in this one, we don’t see how they are ultimately going to get back on the horse. Boston is going to take Game 3 of this series and ultimately force New York to the brink of elimination.
