Forever Blueshirts gave their take on why they feels the Rangers are likely to win the Stanley Cup.

In his article he gave three reasons why he felt this was the case and it certainly begs the question, can they win it after a 30 year wait?
Certainly the goaltending will be a factor in helping them move forward through the Eastern Conference and towards the Stanley Cup finals.
Igor Shesterkin after a very rough December and January managed to work through his issues and become the elite goalie he was before.
Currently, he holds a record of 34-17-2 through 53 games with the goals against 2.65 and a save percentage of 910.
Those numbers would carry a team through several rounds and the Rangers have a safety net in Jonathan Quick who could step in and potentially save a series if need be.
Another weapon that was mentioned was coaching.
First year Rangers head coach Peter Laviolette has certainly made his mark on the team as the Rangers have eclipsed the all-time winning Rangers record in the regular season of 54 wins.
He has navigated the team through rough patches and has put key players together including Artemi Panarin with Alexis Lafreniere who has had a breakout season.
Lastly, the Rangers power play has been deadly and currently sits second in the NHL at 26.8%.
They also hold a third overall ranking in penalty killing which is another great stat in your quest to try to win the Stanley Cup.
Depending on who they meet, these two factors will be front and centre as the team hopes to move forward.
Of course, nothing is guaranteed and after last year's debacle losing in the first round.
The Rangers will be hungrier and certainly would want to avenge last years embarrassment.
