The New York Rangers' season looked bleak yesterday and it was an even more grim situation after they were defeated 2-1 by the very team they're chasing, the Boston Bruins.

The Rangers—71 points—are in 10th place, trailing both the Bruins in eighth place—76 points—and the Atlanta Thrashers in ninth—75 points. Both teams have a game in hand over the Rangers.

Here’s what the blogs is saying after the tough loss:

Thoughts : The Bruins and Thrashers each have 11 games to play. Let’s just say that out of 22 possible points, they only manage 11, this would give the Bruins 87 points and the Thrashers 86.

The Rangers have 71 points and 10 games left to play which means they would need at least 17 out of a possible 20 points to make the playoffs in this scenario.

Realistically the Rangers need eight or nine wins to make the playoffs.

Impossible? Seems like it.
