The New York Rangers have won three of their past four games, including a 4-2 victory against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night.
But that’s not the only time that has happened in the past few weeks.
And if you’re not one of the ones who knows how to cry in the playoffs, this is a good time to know how.
Rangers coach Alain Vigneault has called it “the most emotional playoff game I’ve ever seen in my career.”
So when you’re watching a playoff game in front of your teammates, it’s not uncommon to see the emotion rise.
That’s what happened during the New Jersey Devils-Pittsburgh Penguins game on Saturday.
There was a lot of emotion, but at least it was a little bit different than last season.
And, after the game, a reporter asked Vigneaults about how it was for his team.
“They cried like crazy,” Vigneauts said.
“The guys were like, ‘We can’t lose.
We can’t let them do that.’
It was amazing.”
In the past, the Rangers have been a team that loses by a goal, but they’ve also been a great team that wins a lot.
The Rangers won their first playoff game, in 2006, when they lost in seven games to the Los Angeles Kings.
They won three straight, including the Stanley Cup championship in 2011.
But the team that went on to win it all is now in the midst of a rebuild.
They signed former New York Islanders captain Scott Gomez last summer and made a lot out of their signing, signing a top-four forward to a four-year contract.
So when the Rangers play in New Jersey next, the team is already getting ready for a playoff appearance.
That means a lot to them.
They’re ready to take another step forward.
That might not be the biggest accomplishment in the history of the Rangers, but it’s one that could make them a contender again.
