The New York Rangers Now Need To Win A Road Game

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

It has taken four games, the last two at the Garden punctuated by exclamation points, for the Rangers to shatter the myth of Carolina superiority.

Now the Blueshirts have to win a game in the Hurricanes’ fortress in Raleigh. It would be foolish to bet against them.

“I think the never-die mentality has been in this team from Day 1 and I’ve kind of felt that since walking in a couple of months ago,” deadline-acquisition Andrew Copp said following the Rangers’ 4-1 Game 4 triumph at the Garden on Tuesday that squared the conference semis at two-all. “There’s a lot of belief and confidence in there, for sure.”

This was as complete a performance as the Rangers have demonstrated through this tournament in which they rallied from 3-1 down against the Penguins and now have come back from 2-0 down against Carolina.

They get their shot to take their first series lead of the playoffs in Game 5 on Thursday in Raleigh, where the Hurricanes are 6-0 this postseason, 14-3 in their last 17 postseason matches, but never could shake the Blueshirts in either of the first two games that were decided by 2-1 in overtime and 2-0 with an empty-netter.

The objective person portion of me - says that you really have to hand it to the Rag$ for having a good season and a good playoff so far.  Igor is playing better this round and the last two home games have been good.

But for Larry’s cheerleading for the Rag$ - they have not beaten Carolina on the road yet.  And may not. 

Also, I am not as impressed that it took them to OT in Game 7 to beat a team that mostly fielded a third string goalie…..and this series is tied to a team using its second string goalie. 

This one could go either way - I see the home team winning each game.
