To me the Rangers seem to back off and stop forechecking when they start getting hit by bigger teams.
They also have a lot of trouble going to the net and finding those "garbage goals" (hasn't been the case the past two games, hence the outburst of goal scoring).
That recent game against St Louis was a perfect example of that size/skill balance that the Rangers seem to struggle against.

The problem with Philly is even putting physical intimidation aside, they have all that offensive firepower and I don't see the Rangers going toe to toe with them in that department either.

I'd love to be proven wrong tonight.
