During the regular season the Rangers were incredible. They finished with 110 points, and a 52-24-6 record, which was good for second in the metropolitan division behind the first place Carolina Hurricanes who finished with 116 points. Goalie Igor shesterkin, Defenseman Adam Fox, and Left Winger Artemi Panarin lead the charge for the Rangers leading them to a playoff berth. Shesterkin went 36-13 and 4 this season with a save percentage of .935, Fox had 11 goals, and 63 assists finishing the regular season with 74 points. Fox is one of if not the best defenseman in the league, and is in the running to win the Norris trophy for the second year in a row. Artemi Panarin is considered the Rangers best playmaker, and he showed why this season scoring 22 goals, and 74 assists, which was good for a total of 96 points during the regular season. In the Rangers first round matchup they’re facing off against the Penguins who finished third in the metropolitan division with 103 points. The Rangers trail the series two games to one with a pivotal game four tonight in Pittsburgh that they have to win in order to tie the series before both teams head back to Madison Square Garden before Game five. I still believe the Rangers will win this series but they need to turn it around quickly before it’s too late.
