So, with the Rangers losing in overtime to the Devils yesterday they picked up a point to become co-champs with the Islanders in the Hummer Metro Ice Challenge, right. Wrong. Apparently, the Rangers were named champions over the Islanders last night, despite having the same amount of points and less wins. Not sure how that happened. Maybe because the Rangers had less regulation losses? Even as a Ranger fan I must say that the Islanders were robbed. I'm going to send an e-mail to MSGNetwork to get a full explanation. Here are the final standings:
Islanders - 11-4-1 - 23 points
Rangers - 10-3-3 - 23 points
Devils - 3-9-4 - 10 points
...regardless of the outcome, the HMIC will forever lack credibility. Not sure they can bring it back next year.
