Do a side-by-side with the Rangers' season compared to our 2012, it'll make you puke...bear in mind both teams had new coaches and new systems and got off to slow starts:
Their first 36 games: 16-18-2, Our first 36 games: 20-15-1 (including nine of our SO wins)
Their last 46 games: 29-13-4, Our last 46 games: 28-13-5
They acquire St. Louis in the headline trade, switch Del Zotto for Kevin Klein and make a big secondary addition in Carcillo
We acquire Zidlicky and make secondary additions like Poni and Carter.
Not much is expected of either but both win their first-round series by one goal in game seven against a team most did expect them to beat. Each faced a division foe expected to beat them in round two.
