The collapsing/shot blocking is inhibiting the NYR counter attack, IMHO, because you don't recover the puck as much as you would by challenging the shooter and looking for more turnovers/odd man rushes.
Funny, but I agree with your points, and you are a Senators fan. They are the ones I have made too. I think it would be beneficial for NYR to put more pressure out on the point.
Sure, I'm just an armchair coach here, but I still believe that the Rangers concede too much, and forfeit the potential of forcing a quick and possibly dangerous turnover, with the fallback method of defending.

I guess tonight we will see how things go.
