The New York Rangers are officially eliminated from the NHL playoffs after their Game 7 loss at the New Jersey Devils Monday night.  It was certainly a disappointing loss ending a disappointing season as the Rangers had a lot of talent and did not even win a playoff series after scoring 107 points in the regular season.  Head coach Gerard Gallant might not even keep his job after this.  You have to be able to win with a talented roster that included bringing in Patrick Kane at the trade deadline.  Goaltender Igor Shesterkin had a nice series but the Rangers effort and defense did not show up.  Let's not forget that the Rangers beat the Devils the first two games on the road and outscored them 10-2.  The Devils then made the adjustments and switched goalies and the Rangers just had no answers for it.
