Bobby Holik blogged about the Dog Days Of Winter.

While watching many games I have noticed what is the difference between winning and losing especially this time of the year. It is not always the more talented or deeper team that wins, but usually a team whose players are committed to doing all the little things consistently. Here are few examples.

Not losing one on one battle for the puck anywhere on the ice, otherwise youíre putting your teammates in outnumbered situation.
Lazy back check can turn innocent play into scoring opportunity.
Getting open for your teammate,give him an option whom to pass the puck.
Sacrificing your body for the benefit of the team,shot blocking and taking a hit to make a play.

This is why the Rangers are fundamentally the best team in the NHL, as I tweeted last week. They do these things better than anyone, and itís the main reason why they are at the top of the league (side from Lundqvist).

Holik was a lousy Rangers but he has a unique perspective of the NHL.
