Yes it is really just the scoring.
So many factors fall into play including special teams which is a major fault for the Rangers. If the Rangers PP were actually around 22% the Rangers GAA per game would be close to or exceeding 3 goals per game. That would take a ton of pressure off of the D and the goaltender.
More often than not these goals are being scored while trailing already, which as I said in another thread completely changes the complexion of the game. To score first and expand upon a lead would in fact solve many of these so called "goaltending" issues the Rangers supposedly have according to a few posters.
While there are isolated cases of soft goals or "ones he should have stopped" more often than not it can be traced right back to this teams inability to get out to a lead and put the other team into a "we can't come back now" frame of mind.
