We’re still in the conceptual stages of an idea I had a week or so ago, and the Rangers need to clinch a playoff spot for it to be a “go” but here it is.
Anyway, I was wondering if any of you would like to email me photos of your playoff beards as they progress, and we can post them here at the blog. Maybe we can do a “before” and several “after” shots as the beard gets longer, or heavier, or nastier. Maybe we can do a slide show. Maybe we can have a poll to decide who has the best Rangers Report Playoff Beard.
I might even join you (have to get clearance from Mrs. Carp here at Blog HQ).
Anybody got any thoughts on that? Anybody got any suggestions? Anybody in?
The playoff possibilities remain somewhat complex.
The Rangers can beat the Flyers at MSG, clinch a playoff spot, and maybe catch Montreal for seventh.
They are in the playoffs with one win in their final two games.
But a lot can still happen.
Buffalo can still get in if the Rangers and Florida both lose twice and the Sabres win all three remaining games.
Florida can get in if the Rangers lose both of their games.
The Rangers can go 0-2 and still get in if Florida and Buffalo each lose a game.
It remains possible that Montreal won’t get in and both the Rangers and Florida do, I think.
But the worst-case scenario for the Rangers, and for you long-sufferers, is the Rangers lose Thursday, Florida wins Thursday and Saturday, and the Rangers have to play a must-win, win-and-in, lose-and-out game in Philly Sunday.
