Rangers roll


Here’s why you can’t really, truly compare the 13-game point streak of these Rangers to the 14-game point streak by the ’93-94 Rangers.

In ’93-94 you didn’t get points for overtime losses or shootout losses. If you lost an overtime, you lost the game, and got nothing. There were no shootouts.

The 14-game streak run off by the ’93-94 Rangers was 12-0-2, and all 12 wins came in regulation. The current Rangers streak includes two shootout losses and an overtime loss, plus three shootout “wins.”

I’m not belittling what these Rangers are doing. I think they’re an absolute threat in the playoffs because of their goalie and their system.

The ’93-94 Rangers, by the way, went 6-0-2 in the eight games after their point (undefeated) streak ended. So the roll was 18-1-4.
