There’s no doubt that the New York Rangers’ season wasn’t expected to end Tuesday night. There was supposed to be a more enthusiastic, perhaps desperate, performance in game six. However, wishing for a different ending unfortunately can’t fix the situation now. What we can do, though, is see the silver lining in this postseason run.
What happened to the New York Rangers was inexcusable insofar as the lackluster performance. Another thing that was inexcusable was blowing those late leads early in the series, and even in game two against Montreal.
Some things, though, some plays in particular, stood out. Some players stood out, specifically young ones. All of this experience makes for a future to have faith in. There is an enormous amount of positives to take from this postseason, and a bad end shouldn’t spoil all the good that got this team to the second round.
