Rangers 2014-2015 Outlook
Despite the offseason shakeup, the Rangers are returning essentially the same core that made a run to the final last year. They’ll miss Derek Stepan for the season’s first month or two with a broken leg, but they’ll have a full season of Martin St. Louis, and the addition of Boyle should help. And of course, they have arguably the best goaltender on the planet in Henrik Lundqvist. They should at least match and probably exceed last year’s regular-season success. The deep playoff run is a longer shot, but certainly not out of the question.
The New York Rangers franchise was founded in New York in 1925. The New York Rangers won the franchise’s first Stanley Cup in only its second season in the NHL. The New York Rangers also won Stanley Cups in 1933 and 1940. Although the New York Rangers have always had a successful franchise, the New York Rangers experienced a Stanley Cup drought for over 50 years from 1940 through 1994. During the 1993-1994 NHL season, the New York Rangers claimed the Presidents’ Trophy by finishing with the best record in the NHL - 52-24-8, good for 112 points – a franchise record. After cruising through the Conference Quarterfinals (4-0 over the New York Islanders) and the Conference Semifinals (4-1 over the Washington Capitals), the New York Rangers needed 7 games to defeat the New Jersey Devils in the Conference Finals to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals. After falling behind 3 games to 2 in the Devils Series, Captain Mark Messier guaranteed a victory in Game 6 on the road in New Jersey and a Game 7 victory back at the Garden. Messier delivered on both guarantees – In Game 6, Messier recorded a natural hat trick in the 3rd period to lead the Rangers to a come from behind victory over the Devils to set up the decisive Game 7 back at the Garden. The Rangers led 1-0 the entire game until the Devils tied the contest at 1-1 with less than 10 seconds remaining in the game. The Rangers avenged the Curse of 1940, however, with Stephane Matteau’s game-winning goal in the 2nd overtime period. The New York Rangers once again needed 7 games to defeat the Vancouver Canucks in the Stanley Cup Finals and the drought was finally over. Rangers Defender Brian Leetch became the first American-born to win the Conn Smythe Trophy and Mark Messier became the first player in NHL history to captain 2 different teams to a Stanley Cup Championship. Since the 1994 championship, the New York Rangers have only advanced to the NHL playoffs 5 times, reaching the Conference Finals only once during that stretch.
The New York Rangers have retired the following players’ numbers: Eddie Giacomin’s #1 (retired on March 15, 1989); Brian Leetch’s #2 (retired on January 24, 2008); Rod Gilbert’s #7 (retired on October 14, 1979); Adam Graves’ #9 (number to be retired during 2008-2009 season); Mark Messier’s #11 (retired on January 12, 2006); Mike Richter’s #35 (retired on February 4, 2004); and Wayne Gretzky’s #99 (retired league-wide by the NHL on February 6, 2000).
