The New York Rangers’ three-decade lengthy Stanley Cup drought will final one other 12 months.

The Panthers will advance to face both the Dallas Stars or Edmonton Oilers as they earn a ticket to the Stanley Cup Ultimate for the second straight season.

The Rangers’ incapability to push the ECF to seven video games and power a deciding winner-takes-all contest at Madison Sq. Recreation pissed off followers, particularly after New York opened the playoffs with a dominant seven-game win streak.

The Rangers ran out of fuel and picked the worst time to play their worst hockey. So powerful after the nice common season and 7-0 begin to the playoffs. #NYR

Rangers legit simply going out with the weakest two sport whimper.

Adam Weinrib @AdamWeinrib

Each single 12 months, the Rangers are the third or fourth finest staff within the NHL.

Each single 12 months, in a sport that everybody tells me is dominated by luck and permits anybody to prosper, the Rangers end third or fourth and might’t overcome a greater staff.


The Panthers’ opened the scoring with lower than one minute remaining within the first interval, when Evan Rodrigues’ again cross to Sam Bennett put Florida on the board:

Former Ranger Vladimir Tarasenko added to the deficit with one other strike halfway by way of the second interval:

The Rangers made a remaining push by pulling Igor Shesterkin, which sparked a late objective from Artemi Panarin:

The Rangers had three pictures within the third interval earlier than they pulled the goalie.

The push was too little, too late because the Rangers had been unable to search out the tying objective within the remaining minute.

The Panthers protection blocked 23 pictures, whereas Sergei Bobrovsky made 23 saves to backstop Florida to the win.

Shesterkin made 32 stops within the loss, bringing again recollections of the years New York was unable to win a Cup with Henrik Lundqvist in web:

Jimmy R @jimmyr0223

First Lundqvist and now Shesterkin….legit tried to hold the Rangers to a Stanley Cup. Lundqvist at the very least obtained there however what a waste.

fourth general choose @fourthoverall

really spectacular how the rangers preserve drafting and perpetually disappointing goalies who’re generational abilities

The loss led disenchanted Rangers followers to name for main modifications this offseason.

The Backyard Devoted @GardenFaithful

At this level it feels futile criticizing Panarin, Mika, Kreider, Fox, and many others. I feel they’re making an attempt. I feel they need to win. Elite common season gamers. Lovable Rangers. However they don’t seem to be adequate to win a Cup. Nothing deep about it.

Jack @blueJACKc1ty

The Rangers have to make the identical modifications that FL made within the Tkachuck commerce. They only aren’t constructed to win within the playoffs. Too many guys gliding and going for loops as a substitute of making an attempt to win each single race/battle.

John Flynn @JohnFlynn97

Within the 5 years since Panarin selected the Rangers over the Islanders in free company, the Rangers gained fewer playoff video games (23) than the much less proficient Islanders (24). That is shaping to be Panarin’s unlucky Rangers legacy.

Others gave credit score to the Panthers for his or her potential to take management of Recreation 6 and repeat as Jap Convention champions:

Dan Trent @danimaltrent

As dangerous because the Rangers performed, this Florida staff is actually good. This was a nightmare matchup from the beginning of the season

The Authentic Burnsie @burnsieoriginal

The Panthers had been simply an excessive amount of for the Rangers and the higher staff gained.

The Rangers had been preventing to return to the Stanley Cup Ultimate for the primary time since 2014, and to win the Stanley Cup for the primary time since 1994.

Now the followers must wait at the very least one other 12 months to see the trophy return to New York.

SeanJoseph19 @SeanJoseph1978

The Rangers may have one other shot…

In 2054.

The Panthers, looking for redemption after dropping in 5 video games to the Vegas Golden Knights in final 12 months’s Stanley Cup Ultimate, will in the meantime wait for his or her opponent. The Oilers at present maintain a 3-2 Western Convention Finals collection lead over the Stars and will earn their Ultimate ticket with a win when the puck drops for Recreation 6 Sunday night time at 8 p.m. ET.
