New York Rangers: Why They Will Win the Atlantic Division

There are many naysayers out there that would like to believe that the New York Rangers have succumbed to their recent slump, but that is not the case.

They have not worked this hard to come together as a team and lead the Atlantic Division since late December to simply lie down and take it at the most crucial point in the season.

Lets also not forget that up until their rough patch between March 6th and March 9th, it was the first time the Blueshirts had lost three games in a row all season. That alone speaks volumes about their depth.

They have the uncanny ability to bounce back from any adversity they have faced and what they are looking at now is no exception.

With nine games left to play and the chance to win home-ice advantage throughout the playoffs, one can be sure that the Rangers will be giving it all they've got from here on out.

The problem was, the Rangers were used to sitting pretty in the No. 1 spot, where no other team was even close to them in points. But, since they have been struggling over the last few weeks, the gap between their Atlantic Division opponents has narrowed considerably.

Personally, I think it makes things all the more interesting at this point, because the race is so close that it really ups the intensity of each game—it is do-or-die hockey for them every night.

All I know is that the fat lady has yet to sing her song and hope is very much alive and kicking in New York.

That and the fact that they seem to have gotten their groove back.
