Why the Rangers Are In or Out of the Playoffs

Ryan Dixon at The Hockey News takes a look at the intrigue in the Eastern Conference and tells why certain teams may or may not make it to the playoffs...


IN Martin Biron holds the fort for 15 games, allowing a fresh Henrik Lundqvist to shine brighter than ever in the remaining 67. The Rangers got a healthy, productive campaign from Marian Gaborik during his first season on Broadway; will they be lucky enough to get an encore plus a bounce-back year from Alexander Frolov in his Ranger debut?

OUT Gaborik once again fails to stay in the lineup consistently and the Blueshirts are completely dominated up the middle thanks to a shocking dearth of impact centers. isn't too hard to figure out why or why not the Rangers will make the playoffs. And I think Dixon hits the nail on the head here.
