The New York Rangers 45-31-6 record was good enough to earn them 96 points and second in the Metropolitan Division. This put them in the playoffs for the fourth straight season and their eighth appearance in the last nine seasons. However, this is the first season the Rangers will be in the playoffs under new head coach, Alain Vigneault.

The Final Stretch

The hockey scheduling gods have done the New York Rangers a favor, giving them an easy schedule at a crucial time in the hunt for a postseason spot. The Broadway Blue Shirts, with three games left, will take on Florida, Carolina and New Jersey, three teams that have already been eliminated from the playoffs.

The Rangers are in the 8th spot of the Eastern Conference with the Winnipeg Jets three points behind them the final week of the season, but Captain Ryan Callahan refuses to look in the rear view mirror.

The Rangers head into this season coming off an 8th place finish and another first round playoff exit—the team’s second under head coach John Tortorella.  2011-2012 will be the teams third full season under the fiery Tortorella, and it’s clear the organization has its eyes on getting out of the 1st round of the playoffs, something the Rangers have accomplished just twice since the lockout.
