Jackson and struggling Knicks agree to part ways
Phil Jackson's turbulent three-year stint as team president of the New York Knicks ended on Wednesday with the 71-year-old having failed to revive the once-proud club.
The New York Rangers clinched a NHL playoff spot without taking the ice on Monday, punching their ticket by virtue of New Jersey's 1-0 loss to Calgary.
The idle Rangers, currently fifth in the Eastern Conference, have lost their last two games but gained some consolation in their return to the post-season.
With just three regular season games remaining, New York (43-31-5) still have a chance to move further up the standings and earn home ice in the opening round of the playoffs.
The Rangers are searching for their first Stanley Cup title since 1994.
