from Mark Cannizzaro of the New York Post,
Maybe now the hardest part is over for the Rangers.
Maybe now that they have disposed of the aggravating and agitating Flyers — who always seem like an annoying sibling rival to them because of the teams’ familiarity with each other and their geographic proximity — it will liberate the Rangers to bigger and better things in these NHL playoffs.
Maybe now the Rangers make a real consistent, concerted run in this postseason — a run at a first Stanley Cup in 20 years — instead of acting like a car that sometimes starts at the first turn of the key and sometimes doesn’t, the way they looked too often in the Philadelphia series.
Perhaps Wednesday night’s 2-1 now-we-can-exhale win over the Flyers in Game 7 at the Garden propels the Rangers in their next series — against the Penguins, who will be favored to win, having finished with 13 more points in the regular season and with the home-ice edge.
