Rangers Will Win Boston Series


The Rangers will win this series against Boston.  I know a lot of you are thinking I am nuts for saying this after that performance on Thursday night.  That is exactly why I am saying the Rangers will come out on top.

The Rangers played one of their worst games this post season. Lundqvist did not look like the best goalie in the league giving up 2 soft goals.  The fore check was still in Washington after its flight was cancelled.  With all of the problems the Rangers had, the game still was 2 – 2 and into OT in Boston.  Yes the Rangers still lost, I get that.  But lets look at the positives.  If the Rangers can hold on to a game like that and take it into OT, what will happen when the Rangers are playing to their ability.  What happens when Lundqvist brings his “A” game?  Does the Chara shot go in? Does the Bruins hit 3 posts and put our hearts in our throats?

I see a bounce back game in Game 2 and the Rangers take a 1 – 1 series back to MSG.  The Rangers are very capable of making this series 3 – 1 going back to Boston.

I hope I am right.
