Also, when this team is winning, I don't think they are playing a skill game at all. They are grinding it out, forechecking hard, and outworking the opposition. When the Rangers start overpassing the puck and looking for the perfect play, they get away from their game plan and aren't as effective.
And we wonder why the power play is so bad!
