Exactly, i agree.

The Rangers played a pretty damn good defensive game in Washington IMO. It was the other end of the ice that was the problem. That starts with the deployment of forecheckers, not one on the puck but two - the right way. When guys like Drury are always above the faceoff circle, making sure they are staying high, no wonder they get little to no shots from the slot area, because they arent supporting as well as they do on defense.
