The 3rd and 4th lines of the Caps got ample playing time and played well in these playoffs helping their team gain teritorially advantage throughout the series. Many of the Rangers more skilled forwards got crowded out of space and produced very little. Perhaps the Rangers could use a Ryan Clowe to ride shotgun on Gaborik's line? In any case just plain hockey skills is never enough to take a team over the top--there has to be a mix.
Read my mind Eco. Exactly who I would like to see on Broadway.

Don't think that will happen any time soon.
