Broken Clocks and Ranger Optimism: reviewing Burnside

by Ken Houghton

Three days later, Scott Burnside matches my prediction for Ottawa and New Jersey.

I now feel safe to make plans for Game Seven in the Swamp.

His optimism about The Berubes, on the other hand, appears based on his opening paragraph.
The Rangers have once again become the darlings of Manhattan, advancing to the second round of the playoffs for the first time in a decade.

When your standard alternatives are The Cablevision-subscribers-are-paying-for-this-mismanagement Knickerbockers (whose lottery pick will likely go to the Bulls) and The 110ers (who now need to play .708 baseball for the rest of the season to match the prediction that they would play about .680 for the season), the Berubes look golden.

It's optimism, though, to expect that to translate to three wins.
