The taste of defeat. It is not a good taste at all, especially at the hands of one of your biggest rivals. The Rangers came up just short in the Eastern Conference Finals last season, losing in six games to the New Jersey Devils, their Hudson River rival.

After being eliminated, Rangers coach John Tortorella emphatically made it clear that his team was not tired, after having played all possible 14 games in the previous two rounds. Well coach, if they were not tired, then why didn't they make it to the Stanley Cup Final? The clear reason that the Rangers lost (everyone including their mothers know why) is because they simply could not put the puck to the back of the net.

The 2012-13 Rangers are a hungry team. They now know the taste of defeat. Even more importantly, they acquired Rick Nash. Join me as I take a look at why Rick Nash will put the Rangers over the top and help them in their quest for Lord Stanley's Cup.
