Rapid Recap: Au Revoir, Everything. Rangers 2, Penguins 1

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

So that's that.

The Pittsburgh Penguins are golfing.

Brian Boyle and Brad Richards scored for the Rangers, while playoff standout Jussi Jokinen scored the Penguins' lone goal in a 2-1 Game 7 loss Tuesday in Pittsburgh.

As he did for two games prior, Henrik Lundqvist held the Penguins to just one goal.

So here we are.

Anything and everything is on the table from this point forward. Jussi Jokinen and Brandon Sutter were the team's most consistent forwards. Marc-Andre Fleury, absent a few forgettable moments, had a strong postseason. NHL scoring leader and prohibitive MVP Sidney Crosby was hemmed in offensively by names we'd be going out of our way to spellcheck.

Not what anyone expected, we'd say.

There was talk of staying the course after last season's blowout sweep at the hands of the Bruins, and all that resulted in a lot of stability and a lot of continuity as the players, the coaches and the management earned votes of trust all around.

And yet, here we are.

All told, things are really no different now. Lots of teams lose. All but one, really. But only one, the Penguins, seem to lose, in some spectacular fashion, year over year over year.

Something crazy is probably set to happen. Or maybe not.

Full recap up soon.
