New York Daily News pays tribute to Letterman while ripping Rangers

Thursday May 21st, 2015

Henrik Lundqvist did not have a very good night on Wednesday, giving up six goals for the second straight game to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Obviously this rough playoff performance is going to draw the attention of the New York tabloids, but the Daily News found a way to make Lundqvist's struggles dovetail nicely with the other big news of Wednesday night.

The final episode of David Letterman's Late Show aired after a week of sendoffs to the beloved comedy icon, so the paper melded one of his most famous recurring segments with the Rangers's defensive woes.
