They also had nothing to play for in that game. Ending the Wings streak is a big deal. Any team would very likely love to be the ones to do it.
I'm pretty sure the rangers would rather rest players and get ready for the playoffs than worry about ending the wings streak
Plus I'm sure they'd rather face Florida first round than Pittsburgh although they'd never admit it
They got no mcdonaugh already which is good for us, could see some of brassard/Nash/staal's/kreider/zuccarello being rested
