So I go away on vacation and, as usual, everything happens with my team!
On Thursday they went over to Uniondale and shut out the fishsticks: Rangers 3 Islanders 0
The Rangers cliched a playoff spot with the win
On Friday the home & home concluded with the Blueshirts: Islanders 4 Rangers 3 OT/SO
The boys battled back to tie a couple of times, gained a point for the regulation tie, but lost in the shootout:
Finally, on Sunday the regular season concluded with the Rangers again losing in a shootout to New Jersey: Devils 3 Rangers 2 OT/SO
Once again, the NYR tied it up in the 3rd, and even pulled the goalie (while tied 2-2!!) to attempt to get the victory against the Devils. A victory would've meant home ice in the 1st round of the playoffs against these same Devils. Alas, same result as on Friday. Nice effort by Jaromir Jagr, who has finished the reg. season red hot:
The boys went 7-1 against Jersey in the regular season; let's hope that kind of domination continues for the next couple of weeks. Obviously the Rangers-Devils series outcome is gonna have a lot to do with the play of these 2 goalies:
Game 1 tonight in New Jersey...
LET'S GO RANGERS!
