I don't think they're a better team defensively than Boston. It's a series where 52/74/6 need to be effective in getting shots through and the big bodies need to go to work in the trenches. Do that and control the neutral zone for top six transition and I like their chances.
I know this is going to sound a little bit crazy, but hear me out. I think that we should...forecheck. And defend the offensive blueline. We can break the Rangers D and Lundqvist. Ovechkin and Brouwer on McDonagh and Del Zotto? The Rangers will be at AHL callups by game 3.
I'm not saying play weak through the neutral zone and lazy on D. Just push a little bit. NYR can't handle it.
