This 2012 New York Rangers team has taken us on an emotional roller coaster for the better part of six months.
After last night's dazzling finish to Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals versus the Washington Capitals, it seems like this team is destined to do great things.
Let's look at the team from a different perspective and see what film each player represents and why.
If you agree or disagree or want to add anything, just leave a comment below.
Henrik Lundqvist, much like the movie Goodfellas (starring Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci), never ceases to amaze regardless of how many times you've seen him.
Both the movie and the Rangers goaltender are classics, surely to be remembered for years to come.
Lastly, much like the entertaining Martin Scorsese film, Lundqvist and Goodfellas seem to always be on.
New York Rangers Captain Ryan Callahan might be the most dynamic and complete hockey player on the team's roster. Much like The Dark Knight, it brings to the table a little bit of everything.
Although both the film and Ryan Callahan are still relatively new, they have both established themselves as exemplars of excellence.
Director Christopher Nolan's most recent film from the Batman series, The Dark Knight is far and away the leader of the pack in terms of the Batman movies—much like Ryan Callahan has distinguished himself as the leader among the New York Rangers hockey team.
The Usual Suspects is regarded as one of the most thrilling movies of all time, and much like Brandon Dubinsky of the New York Rangers, they are both mysteries.
After scoring a combined 44 goals in the previous two regular seasons, Dubinsky only lit the lamp 10 times this year with New York. Much like the ending of The Usual Suspects, this left fans dumbfounded.
The movie's final scene will leave you feeling puzzled—similar to how Rangers fans felt after Dubinsky had scored only one goal through the season's first 30 games.
We all love Forrest Gump...but we're not really sure why.
Artem Anisimov doesn't score a ton of goals or throw bone-crushing hits, but nonetheless he is a fan favorite among many New Yorkers.
Similarly, Forrest Gump is one of the most popular movies of this generation, even though it lacks the comedy, action and suspense that most other blockbuster flicks have.
Much like Rangers rookie Chris Kreider, The Avengers has been receiving attention for years now.
Both the movie and the forward were hyped long before their debuts and neither has disappointed.
Kreider scored two game-winning goals in his first two weeks as a Ranger. Meanwhile,The Avengers set the regional record for the highest box office sales in an opening weekend with over $200 million.
This comparison is pretty self-explanatory.
Much like the classic film Fight Club, Prust is always there to pump up your adrenaline.
But the first rule of Prust's fight club: don't talk about Jordan Staal.
Whether you're 40 years old or four years old, chances are that you'll enjoy Toy Story.
Sometimes even adults will lose sight of the fact that it is a kids' movie—much like the fact that Ranger fans often forget that Michael Del Zotto is merely a kid.
At only 21 years of age, the New York defenseman still plays the game like a veteran. Already in his third season with the team, it is easy to lose sight of the fact that Del Zotto is barely old enough to order a martini.
The Godfather is widely regarded as the best movie ever made.
Marion Gaborik is perhaps the most skilled scorer on the New York Rangers roster.
Not only did The Godfather win an Academy Award for Best Picture in 1972, but the sequel won the prestigious award two years later. Although has never won an MVP award, Gaborik is a three-time All-Star who consistently ranks among the NHL's top scorers.
Also like the film, Gaborik tends to have some dull moments. We saw this just a few weeks ago after he went nine straight games without recording a goal.
Yet, both the film and the Ranger never fail to recover and continue to entertain.
