Four Thoughts: 4/12

Panthers Or Penguins; Does It Matter That Much?

In this, the final week of the regular season as playoff spots begin to fill and positions jockeyed, the Rangers find themselves in the somewhat unusual position of picking their poison for their first round opponent. Where as winning would mean a seemingly tougher matchup against the Pittsburgh Penguins, who look like the favorite to […]
