The difference between the Vancouver Canucks and the New York Rangers on the scoreboard is just one game.Thursday night, the Rangers had the opportunity to put 54 years of frustration to rest. With a victory, they would have clutched and kissed the Stanley Cup, lofted it above their heads and circled the Madison Square Garden ice before a madhouse of rollicking fans, who could barely wait to unload the pent-up love and adulation for the men who would end the Cup curse.But the Rangers didn't win, and the only time anyone saw anything being clutched was when New York coach Mike Keenan raised his hands and clutched his throat in the third period of the 6-3 loss to the Canucks.
