I can understand how someone might look at this game and think the Rangers didn't play all that well. However, what people don't realize is that this is how this Rangers team wins games when they're at their best. Give the opposition some chances, but not very many spectacular ones. Bend, don't break. Then capitalize when the opponent inevitably gives you a chance. This game seemed very much to me like the games we played in December. We do a little bit of a rope-a-dope with teams early and are good enough defensively and have good enough goaltending that it doesn't usually hurt us.
