Rangers seem to not be able to win a series when they are against very good goalies.

Florida was the better team every game.Controlled the entire series at even strength,shut down the Rags top 4 Players(Panarin,Zibanejad,Kreider,Trocheck),made sure to not take dumb penalties and if it wasn't for the outstanding Goaltending by Igor it wouldn't have got to game 6.
Florida deserved it. Always great to see the Rangers lose.

Florida is a buzz saw. Like the 2012 Kings. Full commitment and buy in to defend.

No more listening to the ESPN/TNT guys talk about the 1994 Rags like it was the greatest Team to ever take the ice.

No more hearing about how much a difference a stiff like Matt Rempe makes on the ice.

No more watching Jacob Trouba trying to permanently injure opponents and be free from punishment.

No more commentary on how the Rangers Fans and MSG contribute to the team's success.

No more concern in regard to the Officiating potentially having an impact on the Rags home games.

1 Cup in 84 Years.1 Finals appearance in 30 Years.
Not even in the same Galaxy when it comes to the Penguins History.

Since the Playoffs started they had the Parade planned.ESPN has a special about the Messier Guarantee ready to air in anticipation of a Cup Win.

The NY Media put this group on a pedestal.Tried to etch their place in history.

You know who would had helped the Rangers get to the finals? Ryan Graves. In fact every team that lost so far would had done better if they were to add him to their roster.

You think anyone will believe that this summer? :)

Surprised Dallas lost to Edmonton. They went through Vegas and Colorado. Little easier than what Edmonton went through in LA and Vancouver.

Rooting for Maurice and Florida to win the Cup and hoping more teams start to play tough, physical hockey again.

I don’t like wanting Florida to win but Edmonton deserves nothing after how they have squandered and abused the draft the last 20 years.

This is a funny but necessary explanation. It would be like Pittsburgh lighting up buildings with orange if the Flyers were in the final for some other legit good cause.

I did not know that if you take a minor during a 5 minute PP and give up a goal you don’t get your guy back on the ice since it’s not a PP.

Then again I don’t know why I thought it would go back to 5-4 because that doesn’t make any sense.

And not NHL but Cleveland has battled back from 3-0 down in their series against Hershey to force a game 7 Wednesday.

So sick of the media and broadcast talking about his great Edmonton is playing.

Florida plays with poise, controk abd confidence.

Great play by Barkov to steal the puck from Bouchard, 1-0.

Heading into this series the media hype was that McDavid was going after Gretzky and Mario's Playoff Points numbers,Draisaitl was one of the top 5 Playoff performers of All Time and the Oil were going to get a ton of PP Goals betting on Florida taking foolish penalties.Never took into account how strong and determined the Panthers get after it on the ice and how they took to heart what it takes to get back to the Stanley Cup Finals.

And no disrespect to Connor McDavid and his brilliant skill but its time to tap the breaks in putting him as the "Number 5 Greatest Player of All Time."
Might want to look up at #87 in Black and Gold before they go with that.

So NHL has established you only get one kneeing major per round. Good to know. How after video review you don’t toss Nurse is bewildering.

I can't believe that's not a 5 min major. Those idiot announcers were praising the officiating at the beginning of the game, what a joke

I don’t even care if Bennett was actually hurt or not, that was a clear cut major for kneeing.
