The New York Rangers saw their season come to an end Friday night when they lost in double overtime to the Los Angeles Kings in Game Five on the Stanley Cup Final to lose the series 4-1. Many might look back on the series and consider it a disappointment, but this Rangers team accomplished a great deal more this season than was expected.
The New York Rangers 45-31-6 record was good enough to earn them 96 points and second in the Metropolitan Division. This put them in the playoffs for the fourth straight season and their eighth appearance in the last nine seasons. However, this is the first season the Rangers will be in the playoffs under new head coach, Alain Vigneault.
