NHL News: Ding-dong, the...not yet but soon

The brother looking for his in-law. - Bruce Bennett

I used to hate Stanley Cup final sweeps, but I'm willing to give them another look.

For the third time this series (hee hee), the Rangers played a strong and arguably better game (hee hee), yet still came away with a loss in Game 3 (bwahahaha), to fall back to the brink in the Stanley Cup final. If I had any empathy for Rangers fans, I would feel bad about how much they've carried play without results. But no. No.
