I might agree with you Icer as far as the Rangers go. But definitely not Jersey! There is plenty left in their tank. I have NO idea of what you mean by 3 good games, unless you only give a win a good game rating? I think both teams have been very solid, with as Outtie stated, Brodeur clearly is the shaky of the two Goalies. But Jersey's Offense, heeps the puck in the Ranger's zone much longer.
I think the defensive pressure that either east team will provide will be enough to frustrate the Kings, and they will get caught short too often. Once again the ol' cliche raises its head, is the long lay off good or bad? My money is on the bad, which means the layoff and home ice will be their waterloo.
If Jersey closes it out tonight......Jersey in 5-6.....Rangers come back to win....Rangers in 6-7
