New York Rangers lost a critical Game 1 matchup of the second round against the Carolina Hurricanes. The rangers had them. This was their chance to steal the home court from Carolina. The Hurricanes stole Game 1 with an OT goal from Ian Cole to give the Hurricanes a 2-1 victory.
This is a tough one for the Rangers. The rangers knew they would have to be better than they were in the First Round if they had a chance at winning this series. Carolina is a better team than the Penguins. They can’t take them as a joke or take them lightly because this is an excellent team. Rangers would have to win Game 2.
