The Rangers have been advertising for Eastern Conference Finals tickets since before Game Five, but apparently that just wasn’t a big enough jinx for New Yorkers, they wanted to see if they could top it.
We understand the confidence and expectation that comes with being the number one seed — lord, do we ever. But between the sales promos, the streamers dropping from the ceiling after mid-series wins, and now this article at the New York Post that went through to print without anyone realizing that the Caps, in fact, had not lost the game, that confidence is starting to look more like arrogance.
Letter to the editor, and any Rangers fans that are still similarly confused: your team did not win last night. They lost. This series is now a best of one, winner takes all the marbles. Check your headlines, and check your hubris while you’re at it.
Caps in 7.
