NEW YORK – Nearly everything about the New York Rangers' Game 7 victory over the Washington Capitals was improbable, and yet the 5-0 drubbing they authored wasn't even the most surprising result of the night.
No, that belonged to the Boston Bruins — the Rangers' next opponent in the NHL's Eastern Conference playoffs.
On the karma scale, this matchup of Original Six teams is pretty much a dead heat as these classic clubs get set to meet in the postseason for the first time in 40 years.
Game 1 is Thursday night in Boston.
