This is going to be a brutally honest post: I did not watch the game last night. I had another commitment, but I DVR’d the game to do the goal breakdown this morning. Alas, there were no goals scored at all that were worth breaking down. And by that, I mean I’m not breaking down a penalty shot. I saw the replay, was the right call on the play. So, there is no real point of a goal breakdown today. The game was meaningless, and the first time since the end of the 2011-2012 regular season the Rangers have played a meaningless game.
So, the Rangers have clinched the #2 seed, and will play the Flyers in the opening round. Game 1 is on Thursday, giving the Rangers four more days of rest before the playoffs. Time of the game is TBD, but we can assume that since Game 1 is Thursday, Game 2 will be Saturday, Game 3 Monday, etc.
It’s the first nice weekend we’ve had here in New York since…October? Something like that. Go out, enjoy. Use this as your open thread for the day. Talk about whatever, but keep it civil."Goal breakdown (sorta): Rangers/Canadiens",
