In the history of the NHL, teams have trailed 2-0 in a best of seven series 291 times and have come back to win the series on 37 occasions or 12.7% of the time.
So when the Rangers comeback (and they will comeback) to win this series they're going to be #38 on that list. The 1996 Rangers are also on the list when they won four straight after dropping the first two to the Canadiens.
In what might be a good sign, the Capitals are responsible for blowing four (1992, 1996, 2003 & 2009) of those 37 occasions.
...yesterday was a pretty negative day on the blog, so thought I'd start things off with a little positivity this morning.
And if that isn't enough to get you in the right frame of mind, how about this...
I hope you are right Bro, having a shitty day & nothing would make happier than a ranger win tonight; a Sens like besting of the Habs would suit me well.
Thank you! These are the types of stats that I need. Leaving work in 2 hours to head to the Garden. Let's go Rangers!!!! (Note: 1 exclamation point for each game they're going to win in this series.)
I'll believe it if they score 4 goals tonight.... If they lose 1-0 or 2-1 then no way.... you can't win if you dont score
Nope. I've been negative on this team for most of the year and have been proven correct, though I would love to be wrong. To expect a team that has underachieved the entire year to suddenly wake up and play to the level of their huge payroll would be setting myself up for a huge disappointment. I've done that too many times in my nearly 58 years and I'm not going there for this year's edition of the Rangers.
Biggest game of the year! Hope they come out hungry. And for God sake please change up the PP!!!! LET'S GO RANGERS!!!!
@BrendyJohnson Slap Shot obviously gets all the hype as best hockey movie, but Youngblood is right there. Watched that movie 5,000 times as a kid.
