Rangers advance, Third Round preview, Conn Smythe tracker and more

Well, it was another tight game, to say the least, but the determined New York Rangers finally bested the pesky Caps, 2-1, in Game 7 last night.

The win moves the top seeded Rangers one step closer to the Cup finals.

Up next for New York is a date with their New York state rivals, the Devils. As much as the Devils started the playoffs as the sixth seed, they look like a team that is firing on all cylinders.

Moreover, their "team" game is really shining through and, as a result, they have been knocking the opposition down since the playoffs started.

Still, I think this is the Rangers' series to lose.

Round Three kicks off tonight as the Coyotes and Kings get started while the two New York-based teams play their first match on Monday.

The way things look right now, my money is on the Kings and Rangers to advance with L.A. pulling out their first Cup win. Then again, the way the playoffs have gone so far, I wouldn't be surprised to see a Jersey-Yotes final.

Boy would that ever take years off of Gary Bettman's life!
