Solid Last Ditch Effort - So Far

From great friend of the blog Brian Monzo at WFAN.com:

Some would say this would have been predictable. I am normally one of those people, but I wasn’t this year. What I am talking about is the last ditch effort the Rangers are making to inch their way into the playoffs. This has been their way the past few seasons, and they are doing it again. The last blog I wrote, I explained why the Rangers would finish with 79 points when the season ended. Well, they are at 82, with four games left the be played.

The Rangers are surging right now, aiming for that 8th seed in the Eastern Conference, still presently on the outside looking in. They beat the Devils in a shootout, a game I thought they would lose, swept a home and home with the Islanders, beat the Lightning and Panthers in Florida and notched a point in an OT loss to the Maple Leafs. All that equates to them still being in the playoff picture.
