Five To Forget

As Dave W mentioned in the comments for the Five For The Future, there was sure to be the antithesis of those great games - five atrocious evenings that are best for the Blueshirts to forget. Going into depth on them will be to painful, so this is just a quick look to throw some dirt on the coffins.

*Note that the double overtime Game 4 loss against the Capitals is not on this list. That utter failure should not be forgotten, it should be used as motivation for this summer, next season and the rest of the Rangers' careers.

Dishonourable mention: November 19th, 5-1 loss against the Avalanche and March 24th, 2-1 shootout loss to the Senators.

5 - October 15th, 4-3 overtime loss to the Leafs: Hard to distinguish who was worse that night, Ace Frehley or the Rangers.

4 - March 3rd, 3-1 loss to the Wild: One of the many games where they blew an early lead, the Rangers looked lifeless against a lousy team that was in the midst of a 2-9-2 slide.

3 - January 2nd, 3-0 loss to the Panthers: The first of two losses in January to Florida. The Panthers. The Rangers lost to the Panthers twice in a month, and this one was a shutout.

2 - April 7th, 3-0 loss to the Thrashers: The Rangers disgraced themselves by falling flat against Atlanta despite a pregame ceremony with Ryan Callahan and Steven McDonald.

1 - April 23rd, 3-1 loss to the Capitals: The Rangers had given up before this one even started.
