If the New York Rangers are going to win their Eastern Conference semifinal with the Boston Bruins, they are going to have to make history to do it. No team has won back-to-back series in which it has gone down 2-0. The Rangers were in a 2-0 hole to the Washington Capitals in their Eastern Conference quarterfinal before coming back to win the series in seven games.

The Rangers currently find themselves down 2-0 to the Bruins after 3-2 and 5-2 losses in Beantown.

Rangers coach John Tortorella was issuing the "keep calm and carry on," message Monday.

"Some of the mistakes we made, it was surprising and a lot of it was off the rush, but I think that can be fixed because I think that's one of the strengths of our game," he said of the Rangers' play in Game 2. "That's why I'm very encouraged. I think we're going to be OK here."
