The Start Of A Cup Run For The New York Rangers?

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.
