Though their 2024 Stanley Cup Playoffs run stalled before reaching the Cup Final, there were a slew of memorable moments for the New York Rangers in the 16 games they played.

New York won its first seven postseason games after capturing the Presidents’ Trophy for having the most points during the 2023-24 NHL regular season. The Rangers swept the Washington Capitals in the first round and ran out to a 3-0 series lead in Round 2 against the Carolina Hurricanes. Things got tougher from there, as the Rangers barely closed out the Hurricanes in six games. And then they let a 2-1 series lead slip away in a six-game loss to the Florida Panthers in the Eastern Conference Final.

Let’s check out the top 10 moments for the New York Rangers in the 2024 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
