The Rangers are Headed to the Stanley Cup Finals - Let the Rage Commence

The New York Rangers eliminated the Montreal Canadiens in Madison Square Garden in game six tonight. This of course happened because there are no hockey gods and if there are hockey gods they enjoy taking our morale out back and blasting it in the face with a shotgun whenever possible. Okay, maybe that's a bit drastic. Actually no, maybe that's not drastic enough. Maybe they just like to re-enact the curb stomp scene from "American History X" to our egos. No no, it's definitely more drawn out than that. After all, they decided to eliminate two starting goalies that the Rangers would have had to face leaving them only to contend with Marc-Andre "Sure, I'm an N.H.L. Goalie Until the Playoffs Start" Fleury in the second round.

This is basically the hockey equivalent of Chinese water torture. Drip, drip, drip. Every next drop more excruciating and enraging than the last, but there's nothing we can do about it. We're stuck here meandering until game six of the Western Conference Finals where Corey Crawford and Jonathan Quick will inevitably suffer some asinine injury that will be just catastrophic enough to keep them sidelined for the rest of the playoffs as the media, both social and main stream, sing the praises of evil incarnated. And so we vent.
