problem the rangers have is...Clearly Henrik plays better when hes a lil more rested...you need to have a competent goalie in there who can give you about 20 good starts. Biron was most definitely that guy until Christmas, since then he's been a big time liability between the pipes, so much so that i'm pretty much chalking any start he has the rest of the way as a game we'll probably lose.
If biron could regain his form, be square to the shooters, get back to stepping out of the crease a bit to cut down angles, and close his 5-hole a bit, he'll be fine.
His problem is he's trying to play a little too much like Henrik. Deep in his net. Henrik can do that because he is lightning quick side to side and has phenomenal reaction times. Biron needs to play a little more like Ryan Miller. Challenge the shooter, force them to beat you with a perfect shot or going around you. If they go around you, that's on the D for not picking them up. If your 5-hole is the size of the grand canyon, that's on you.
