Couple of thoughts for Thursday:

1. Thought that the Rangers got out of the first period only down one goal was huge. Home teams need to use the crowd energy and the momentum early. Starting early in the second, Rangers really took over the game

2. Speed of Hagelin and Kreider makes a huge difference. Sens had to be back more on their heels and Rangers had much more puck possession.

3. Rangers towards the end were getting a ton of odd man breaks. Need to capitalize.

4. Stepan looked so much more engaged and better. Having a second line that could be dangerous makes all the difference in the world. Anisimov towards the end also looked like a difference maker. Both of them need to do it again on Thursday.

5. The extra day to rest will benefit the Rangers more IMO.

6. I've been defending Dubinsky all season. No more. He looks awful, couldn't score on an empty net, looked like he couldn't even stay upright half the time. Unfortunately, his contract makes him untradeable for anyone of value except as a throw-in or a trade just to get rid of his contract.
