captain clutch comes through.

Chris Drury doesn’t score a lot of goals (20 this season) but he does score a lot of CLUTCH goals and that is exactly what the Rangers captain did tonight. The Rangers defeated the defenseless Montreal Canadiens 3-1 and Drury notched two very important goals for the Blueshirts. The win, coupled with a Panthers 2-1 loss means the Rangers have inched closer to a playoff berth.The Rangers will finish the season with another home and home series against the Philadelphia Flyers (clinched a playoff spot tonight with the win over the Panthers). The Rangers and Flyers split a home and home series last month.

If the Rangers can win Thursday they will eliminate Florida and Buffalo from the post season. The Rangers could potentially finish as high as sixth in the east and would face either Philadelphia or the red hot Carolina Hurricanes. If the Rangers finish in eighth they will play Boston and if the Blueshirts finish seventh, they will play either New Jersey or Washington. Of all the possible scenarios, I would prefer a Rangers/Bruins first round tilt.
