Kukla's Korner Hockey

Under the cool, calm and collected Vigneault, the Rangers remained a work-in-progress even after they clinched a playoff berth.
Pleasant surprises out-numbered disappointments, particularly in goal where Cam Talbot expertly took over as back-up to Henrik Lundqvist without missing a beat. Not to mention Kevin Klein, who replaced Michael Del Zotto.
The departure of Ryan Callahan hurt not a bit as Martin St. Louis stepped in, providing leadership and key goals throughout the playoff run. Marty was second to McDonagh in Rangers scoring throughout the post-season.
Last September, when the sport's bible, The Hockey News, viewed the Rangers chances, it called them 17-1 to win The Cup. Clearly they did a lot better than anticipated and, therefore, this must be viewed as an upbeat season!
Rangers fans should have no fear because there's a surplus of hope looking ahead to 2014-15.
