This is, quite simply, the Rangers game to steal.
And it is, just as simply, the Capitals game to lose.
I'd love to be able to think otherwise, but the plethora of talent on the Capitals team coupled with the Rangers lack of determination in crunch time over the last few games, leads me to no other conclusion but this.
That being said, however, it is a game 7. In game sevens, anything can happen. There are reasons you play the game, and tonight, that is all it comes down to: one game won to move on, one game lost to go home.
Maybe the Rangers have one more magical moment left from their glorious start to the season. Perhaps that team of speed, determination, and discipline that took the ice six months ago can take the ice in Washington again tonight.
I'll be honest: I sure hope so.
That's all there is to say. Well except for:
Let's Go Rangers!
