The No. 1 seeded New York Rangers were never really threatened by the Ottawa Senators in the first game of their first round series Thursday, although the 4-2 final score made the game look somewhat close. The Rangers were up 4-0 in the third period before surrendering two more-or-less meaningless goals - although the two unanswered scores should give hope to Sens fans.
The 8-over-1 upset isn't impossible - hey, the Kings are doing it! - but if Ottawa wants to pull it off, they'll need to start with a road win in Game 2.
