Good morning and Happy Easter New York Rangers fans. It’s been a crazy week but here is the news about the Rangers. It’s playoff season so things might go a little differently for the rest of the season, rest assured we will have you covered.
If you haven’t looked ahead at the playoff schedule between the Rangers and the Philadelphia Flyers there are a few glaring oddities. For starters, the number of days between games gets a little strange as the series progresses, but they are scheduled to play on two consecutive Sundays. One of those Sundays is Easter though. Here is a good assessment of the entire schedule. If you look close, the writer who called out the NHL is none other than a part of the Philly press.
The “nay sayers” would have you believe that the New York Rangers can’t win against the Flyers because they aren’t tough enough. They don’t fight and they aren’t physical enough to withstand the force of the Flyers. I think someone forgot to tell the Rangers this. Maybe they did tell the Rangers and game 1 was the result. Any way you look at it, this is what happened. It was a beauty of a game to watch!
We all know Henrik Lundqvist is the style behind the team. We also know he is the motivation behind the “Garden of Dreams Foundation”. Who would say no to having Lundqvist show up and be their personal shopper? Yeah, I didn’t think so. Check out this great story about two young boys who got a dream opportunity.
