Rangers lose Game 2, trail series 0-2

The Rangers dropped Game 2 to the Boston Bruins and now trail the series 0-2. Coming back from 0-2 against the Bruins will not be an easy feat, as the Bruins are battled tested and won Lord Stanley’s Cup only 2 years ago. Now the series will shift to New York and the Rangers will need to use their home crowd advantage in order to even the series. The Bruins have shown this post-season that they are capable of blowing leads, as they were up 3-1 against the Toronto Maple Leafs in the first round, and needed a miraculous comeback in Game 7.

 

A very rare ‘off’ game by Henrik Lundqvist proved to be the difference in Game 2. After he has kept the Rangers alive all post-season, he is allowed to be given a pass for one rough night. The defense did not help him out much, but going down 4-2 just 26 seconds into the 3rd period proved too much to come back from against a defensive savvy team like the Bruins.

 

 

 

Finally, a Rick Nash sighting; something Ranger fans should be excited about. After leading the Rangers with 21 goals in the shortened regular season, Nash scored an equalizer and installed some hope that he might find is All-Star level game just in time for the remainder of this post-season run.

 

The Rangers never led in this game, falling behind 1-0 before Ryan Callahan tied it as 1. Then, Boston took a 2-1 lead on Gregory Campbell’s goal, before Rick Nash evened the score at 2. Johnny Boychuk put the Bruins up 3-2 12 minutes and 6 seconds into the second period, and the Rangers never pulled back even.
