Who's to Blame for New York Rangers' 2nd-Round Loss to Boston Bruins?

The New York Rangers almost completely collapsed in their second-round loss to the Boston Bruins

New York went down in five games, and although three of those losses were close, the Bruins made a lot of big plays at key moments.

If not for the remarkable play of Henrik Lundqvist in the third, fourth and fifth games, several of the matchups would have likely ended in blowout fashion.

Lundqvist was not at his best in the second game, but you will not find his name on this list of those responsible for New York's defeat.

Remember, the Rangers started the season as one of the NHL's favorites after trading for Rick Nash in the offseason, but they never played in that manner in the regular season or playoffs.

This is the second straight year that the Rangers were taken apart in their decisive playoff series and there are serious questions about this team's future.
