Islanders down 2-0 to Boston after two periods and not even busting a sweat.


Asslanders are no help

I would expect the Bruins to be about 10-4 down the stretch. That's 74 points. To get to that number, we will need to win-out our final 13 games. Not impossible, but I would put the odds at about 1,000 to 1.

Your probably not far off what Boston is going to do. I said it before Hall has the ability to lift a team with his own performance. If he catches fire and plays to his level they will be tough to catch.

We should hold our heads high as Rangers fan. 11-4-3 in our last 18 games, one of the best records in the NHL over that span. Future is crazy bright. Going to be a big offseason as well as I expect Gorton to put the finishing touches on this team, including at least one big move.

Great time to be a Rangers fan, even though in reality the playoffs have been a big longshot, at best, for a while now. We won't be in our current position for many years. Fun times ahead starting this summer.

David Quinn’s charges have earned a point in eight of nine (6-1-2) and in 14 of their last 18 games (11-4-3) which is the start of this incredible run.

Since March 13th, which coincides with Artemi Panarin’s return from a leave of absence, the Rangers have amassed 25 points. That’s one more than the first place Capitals and third place Penguins. It is also five more points than the second place Islanders and three more than the fourth place Bruins.

Unless somebody collapses and goes sub 500 the rest of the way it will be difficult to make the playoffs. We will be one of the best teams in the division going down the stretch if we remain healthy, but we gave away too may points in the first half of the season... Need to come out hot next season... The Rangers are fun to watch... There is an S load of talent on this team and more in the wings waiting to come up. We need to play the whole season, not just the last half. I am not sold on Quinn...

It isn't a real shocker we were up and down to start. Young team, no camp, kids playing together for the first time. No surprise really. I do not expect that next season, and we'll add some more talent as well I believe.

As for Quinn, I agree in the sense that it gets real next season. Next season is about winning and making the playoffs, period. No excuses starting next season. W's and L's is all that matters. He absolutely deserves the chance to coach the team next season as we will be ready for the next step, but I am not sure if he's the right guy for that step. The jury is out and only time will tell. I am hopeful, but we'll find out next season for sure.

The final two games of the season they play eachother. The Rangers will be behind Boston in the standings by 4 pts going in to those games...

Boston plays the Isles and at the Caps after the two against us. So if we are 4 back into those last two games we'll need Boston to go 0-8 points wise to tie them.

Ah... I was wondering where the two games in hand were.... there they are!

It's a stretch to think we could catch any of these teams, but the Islanders are now in the mix. They are 5-5 in their last 10 and have lost 2 straight. We are 8 points behind and play them 3 more times.

Well Isles are playing the Flyers right now and if they lose in regulation, then the Rangers will be 6 points behind with 3 head to head matchups between the two teams. Will be hard to beat the Isles three times in regulation, but they might be a better chance than Boston, which is 4 points ahead, but have two games in hand.

Rangers can’t afford much more than 2 losses here on in. Unless the piles or bruins happen to go .500 down the stretch without any regulation ties. Another must win Tuesday and must sweep philly this week.

I won't be disappointed if the Rangers don't make the playoffs this year if they go down playing hard. There is a lot to look forward too... My biggest concern is not the players, depth and farm system, but the coach... I think his experience level might have a hard time keeping up with his players.

It has worked pretty well for the past 20 games since March 13th (13-4-3). We have the 2nd most points in the NHL over that time period. But yes pressure will be on Quinn to lead this team to the playoffs and beyond starting next season.

Since March 13th, the Rangers have gone 13-4-3 or .725. Over the last 10 (thanks to those four against NJD), they're 7-1-2 or .800

If they were to go .800 the rest of the way, they'd get finish with 72 points. That would mean the other teams would have to go:

WAS 11 points in 10 games .550 - 2 games v NYR
NYI 13 points in 11 games .591 - 3 games v NYR
PIT 14 points in 11 games .636 - 0 games v NYR
BOS 17 points in 13 games .654 - 2 games v NYR

Currently the last 10 rank out as following:

WAS 6-4-0 or .600 (requires .550)
NYI 6-4-0 or .600 (requires .591)
PIT 6-3-1 or .650 (requires .636)
BOS 7-2-1 or .750 (requires .654)

Translation - we have pretty much no shot to get in. BUT if we want to keep any small hope alive, tomorrow night is a must win in regulation IMO. The way things are shaping up, the Isles are the team we are better positioned to catch, not the Bruins. That must start with a win tomorrow night, which would still leave us as a very longshot, but at least barely breathing. An L and we are done IMO.

Reasons the Isles are the team we have the "best shot" to catch:

1. We play them 3 times, and play the Bruins only 2 times.
2. We have 11 games remaining, as do the Isles.
3. The Isles play Buffalo and NJ 4 total times. The Bruins play Buffalo and NJ 7 total times. We play Buffalo 2 more times (done with NJ).
4. The Bruins are playing better than the Isles currently.
5. The Isles also have 3 games left against the Caps.

Turn your attention to the Isles, that is our only slim path into the playoffs. That's why last nights Isles win over Philly was big for them.
