Remember that hex I told you about?
I’m telling you people, I wield a lot of power on this here keyboard.
Meanwhile, I get a similar vibe from last night’s five-goal-lead, there’s-no-way-they-can-blow-this-one debacle as last spring’s Game 5, 7.7 seconds left nightmare in Buffalo.
Sure, the stakes here were much lower. But the common thread is that the Rangers probably would have been better served losing in a less dramatic fashion rather than having a crucial win dangling in front of them.
Because now it’s at least worth asking if there will be repercussions beyond just one game.
We probably won’t know one way or the other today. The team already had an off day scheduled, although a part of me expected to see Tom Renney call for his team to get right back on the ice today after such a demoralizing meltdown.
That part can be debated, but I’m of the belief the team endured enough punishment just having to leave Montreal with a measly point.
