The Rangers fading playoff chances improved tremendously last night as the 8th place Bruins lost to the Sabres and the 9th place Thrashers were defeated by the Hurricanes.
The Rangers are just four points out of the final playoff spot with seven games to go. The Rangers have a game in hand on the Thrashers. Full standings here.
...does anyone want to make the playoffs?
...i really thought the Rangers only chance of getting in was through a Flyers collapse, but Boston is giving the Rangers another opening.
