At times it wasn't a guarantee that the Blueshirts would make it into the playoffs.  After essentially playing two weeks of playoff games at the end of the lockout-shortened season, the Rangers worked their way in as a six seed in the Eastern Conference.  Their first round opponent is a familiar one: the Washington Capitals.
