I'm confident we could take anyone of the Sabs, Caps, OTT, or FL in the first round, however my main concern is with the Rangers game right now. They been playing .500 hockey and don't look that much different from the teams we saw enter post season for the past 2 years.
No powerplay to speak of, sputtering offense, defensive gaffes and breakdowns that immediately lead to pucks in the back of our net.
More than anything else, i'm finding Lundqvist's crappy play of late very troublesome. He's been more than adequately backed up by Biron this season. I can understand a bad game here and there, but he's been off for weeks now! What's the story?
Enough with the accolades and praise. If this team is going to take the next step, it has to start with Lundqvist making the transition from a great regular season goalie, to a great PLAYOFF GOALTENDER. So far in his career the latter has not yet been accomplished.
