Unless Lundqvist stands on his head each and every night and steals the series the way Patrick Roy did many a time, I have no faith in the Rangers against the Penguins assuming everyone is healthy.

It matters, but losing close games is still losing.

I trust their offence more than I trust ours to score goals at important times during a game.

i.e. in the third period on the PP while tied at 1 or to salt a game away when leading by 1.

The styles match up and the talent level of the Pens three centers poses a real problem for this Rangers team. One that will not be overcome because Lundqvist is in nets.

That is of course assuming Lundqvist just plays to his potential.

Should Lundqvist play above his own head, we have a shot.
