Could Thr Rangers Sweep

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

There is never the slightest benefit to playing even a single game more than necessary in any playoff series. No Cup champion since the 1992 Penguins has played a seven-game, first-round series. No Cup champion since the 1998 Red Wings has needed more than 11 games to advance to the conference finals.
This isn’t going to be easy for the Rangers. Invisible Brother Marian Hossa might actually announce his presence in the playoffs. So might the boorish Keith Tkachuk. Bob Hartley might recognize that Bobby Holik needs to be on the power play, though assigning No. 16 to the man-up unit would pile on additional minutes his best player might be unable to handle in concert with his checking assignment.
