Are the New York Rangers on the back burner? Not yet, but hey may soon be out of range.(Update)

Rangers shutout moves LA Kings one away from second Stanley Cup in three years. Los Angeles wins in New York and takes a 3-0 series edge. The Kings are just one win away from winning their second Stanley Cup in three years.

For 85 seasons, the New York Rangers hockey team has entertained fans with some of the most memorable moments in New York sporting history.

During their first 16 seasons, the Rangers missed the playoffs only once, and only twice did they fall lower than third place. By the early 1940s, the Blueshirts’ popularity contributed to the decline of the Americans, who left The Garden for Brooklyn before eventually folding in 1942. During that 16-year span in which they were one of two New York hockey teams, the Rangers won three regular-season championships, finished second five times and third on six other occasions. Rangers’ nights at The Garden became popular, attracting a ‘dinner-jacket’ crowd that often included sports figures, Broadway entertainers, New York’s society elite and City Hall politicians.

Playing at one of the world’s most famous arena, Madison Square Garden, The New York Rangers have built a storied reputation on pride, passion and tradition. Will this rich tradition continue?

Watch and we shall see it they make it more than three.
