I agree, but as long as we don't collapse in the 3rd, that's been our problem for years now. Instead, it seems like we're starting slower, and then jumping all over teams in the 2nd and some of the 3rd, and then playing excellent defense to hold off any charge.

Granted, i didn't see the Caps game, I understand we controlled early and then maybe tapered off...

Edit: Also, I consider the Rangers to be overachievers at this point, with 3 of their top scorers out. Although that may have brought the team together, and the 3 of them returning may derail any built up chemistry. They're off to a hot start considering the circumstances. Plus, the Flyers are always due for one awful cold streak during the season. Let's hope Lavi is good at curbing them to a minimum.
