In about a week the Rangers will host a to-be-determined team at Madison Square Garden in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. With their win over the Flyers last night, the Rangers have clinched the first seed in the Eastern Conference for the first time since 1993-1994. If I recall, big things happened that season.
The Rangers started their season in Europe and went 0-1-2 on that trip. They came back to the U.S. and lost in Long Island before heading to Canada for a long trip against Edmonton, Vancouver and Calgary. They lost to Edmonton, but had dramatic wins over the Canucks and Flames to start their run to the top of the East.
