There are two things we fully know about the New York Rangers that are timeless and unchanging.
One, their shaded blue uniforms with white shades and the diagonal “Rangers” from the right shoulder to the left belt level is a great part of Team Shamata’s man-made. In fact, they should bring back the white “New York” roadies of old, if they care about their dignity at any level.
And two, despite a 6-2 win over Game 1 Tampa Bay in the Eastern Conference Finals, they will somehow bolster their Stanley Cup run with some serious degradation between now and the Big Bear Cooler presentation. It’s who they are, and it’s what they are. Every 10 presidents or more, they have won the cup, and between these two poles their fans pretend that this year similarly high school students pretend to have their first dance night, lost wallet and call Dad from the police house at 4:00 am By
Yet after a game in the Eastern Conference finals, which is your ideal microscopic snapshot for this kind of thing, the Rangers seem younger, brighter, jumper and less aware of their history than their year. Older, more stable and much more resonant-loaded Tampa Bay Lightning Wednesday, the Rangers’ six goals looked like they were invented as a brilliant improvisational piece when Tampa looked slower, more advanced and much like the team at the time.
In other words, hello Philip Chital.
Chital is a bit of a bender late, and he was able to put two of his goals into the net with just two shots which turned into a tense game and turned into a route. He is part of a young New York team led by 30-year-old Chris Kraider and 28-year-old Mika Zibaneza, but driven by a fleet of smaller and more dynamic collaborators, such as Chytil, Alexis Lafreniere, Kappo Kakko, Adam Fox and K’andre. Miller. Their goals also include Garage Wall Eger Shesterkin and Charcoal Starter-Faced Head Coach Gerard Gallant, both of whom have lost after repo’d your car and are just as deep as any Ranger team since Stephen Matthew Sam Rosen’s career 28 years ago. .
Now the strategy here is to watch Wednesday’s game and see how much more lively the Rangers were than ‘Ning’ and still find a way to beat New York. And now all you get is the way of that tired old snail, “Well, they’re Rangers. They’re Knicks, only they wear nice clothes. “
Well, they probably still are because Conference Final Game 1 is always a game where the old team suddenly discovers how much the legs can weigh. Tampa got eight days off beating Florida like a roadside dinner egg, and ‘Ning rested very well for their own good. The Rangers got huge mileage from their derivatively named Kid Line of Chytil, Kakko, and Lafreniere and reminded Tampa that its trips to the finals were not as easy as they seem in the rear view mirror.
In short, the Rangers unveiled the somewhat less remarkable Andrei Vasilevsky only as a good goalkeeper when they held on to the best. None of this guarantees that the rest of the series will go on like this, as the skate sharpeners in Tampa are older than the Lafrenier and more available consonant than the Rangers, they also have a Braden Point reserve. No one counts two-time champions without more proof than that.
Still, the Rangers are not seen sharp? They do their best until they prove otherwise.
