    Sad to say, but I've gotten used to this every April/May.

    Yes sad to say but we come to expect it. The Rangers & Mets fanbases were so excited for the future after both teams made it a few years ago with a chance to win a Title.

    Rangers looking good getting to play for the Cup vs the Kings and Mets looking dominating getting to the WS vs KC. Unfortunately for us fans both fell a little short of the ultimate goal with both falling to slightly hotter hitters/Pitchers or well a Hotter Goalie in Quick. ..But all was right with the world!!! The future looked bright for both franchises to make return trips to the finals quite often over the next several seasons!!! Or so we thought???

    Such is the life of Rangers & Mets fans. So much talent and promise for the future going up in smoke right before our eyes.

    Hey also why is it our NY Sports teams in general have such a huge problem with injuries every year??
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
    But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
    4-New York Giants!!!
    5-NE
    Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

    Bottom line, I want to be mad and I am, but the fact is they lost to a team that wanted it more than they did and had a much better goalie in the net. That's what wins in the playoffs. I just hope this is the end of the Lungqvist era. Great regular season goalie but not a guy that can carry a team in the playoffs when teams need it.
    This. Our defense wasn't the greatest but game 5 was one of the worst games I have ever seen. And game 6 they let them come right back. Henrik looked stiff all game. Like you said great goalie, especially during the regular season, but he doesn't have the IT factor. He tenses up during the playoffs, chases guys out of the net...Thats peewee crap....Time to go another direction.

    Ottawa was beat up, we should have won this series. Very disappointing.

    Karlsson had a broken foot and the Rangers still couldn't stop him.

    At least you guys aren't Islander fans. The Islanders are the Mets of the NHL.

    And if the Mets aren't careful, they'll turn into the Knicks of MLB.

    No one is the Knicks of any sport. They are in a league of their own. Rooting for the Knicks is like hoping the garbage man has a good day in the middle of a cat 5 hurricane.
