Second Verse, Same As The First

Here is the thus far unconfirmed schedule for the Rangers/Sabres Eastern Conference Semifinal series:

Wednesday: Game 1 in Buffalo 7 p.m.
Friday Game 2 in Buffalo 7 p.m.
Sunday Game 3 at MSG 2 p.m.
Tuesday Game 4 at MSG 7 p.m.
Thursday Game 5 in Buffalo 7 p.m. *
Sunday Game 6 at MSG 2 p.m.*
Tuesday Game 7 in Buffalo 7 p.m *

*if necessary

I may be a homer, but I think the Rangers have a good shot to win this series. I’m not saying they’ll sweep them, but I think they can beat them. If the Islanders did one thing this season to help the Rangers, it was drawing the Sabres in the first round. The Islanders exposed the Sabres’ primary weakness, which is the lack of size on their front line. The Islanders got physical with their forwards, caused some neutral zone turnovers and created scoring opportunities. They lost the series in five games, which seems lopsided, but two of those games were decided by one goal and another was a two-goal margin with an empty-netter.

The Sabres are vulnerable, and the Rangers are scorching hot. The only possible issue for the Rangers is the long layoff, but the Sabres have been on the bench for almost as long.

Here’s the prediction: Rangers in 6.
