It’s been nothing but ugly for the New York Rangers in these 2014 NHL Playoffs, and does that actually come as a surprise to anybody?
Didn’t think so.
After struggling to beat the Philadelphia Flyers—who they should have brushed off in five games—the Rangers have been shockingly ineffective and overall relatively pathetic in their second-round matchup with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
It doesn’t come as a shock, either, when you look at it; the Rangers’ stars are not performing. When the big guns don’t fire, you’ve really got no shot in this league.
And today, because I know everyone in Blueshirt Nation is feeling real great about this team, we’ll rate the current state of the Rangers’ biggest stars.
Spoiler alert: it’s not good.
