on a side note, it's been good to us able to play with a lead. in the past x amount of years we had a problem in that area.
uh, Rangers style has always been to play a suffocating style in the neutral zone when they can. The idea is to get the puck back as soon as they lose it and turn right back to offense...either create a rush off that turnover, or put it deep and forecheck again

Again, it's boring if you're the Leafs since they couldn't get anything going, but it was entertaining enough
