That said, do what you gotta do to win. And that said x2, the Rangers need to try something else besides hard dumps in to the corner where they have no chance to beat the collapsing 1-4 defense.
For most of the 3rd, they had all 5 players inside the blue lines locking everything down. No matter what it was, the Rangers didn't adjust. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that to beat the system, you gotta dump and chase. You can't stretch pass through five players to the other blue line. The times they did dump it, they were slow to get there. They were a step behind the entire night.
