Either way they were far better, it was a fluke that we won 3 games against them to begin with. That team had the jitters, they had a lot of expectations of them that were holding them back, ovechkin most of all, seeing as he was almost scoreless until game 5 or so.
The defense was awful for 5 of those 7 games. If i remember correctly after every Rangers win Lundqvuist would be praised for saving the rangers, and he made miraculous saves it wasnt just him saving 40-50 shots without a screen right into his chest.
The fact that the rangers went 7 games on Washington last year with the defense they had shouldnt be something you use to argue that the defense was solid. What it should tell you is that they have one the best goalies in the league who is wasting his career on a sup par team like this.
All i'm hoping for at this point is that Sather and Tortorella are fired and a GM who actually knows what he's doing and a great coach will take their place.
