Blocking 40 shots a game is not how you win. That is how the rangers have won this year, and to be frank they have been extremely lucky with injuries. Most teams that block a high amount of shots lose players to injuries for an extended period of time i.e. JVR.
I believe the Flyers have the right system to win in this league, but come playoff time this clutch and grab stuff has really slowed our offense down. NJ is a well coached , smart team. They have an amazing PK, so they can do this clutch and grab tactics all game, and the few times they get called they can successfully kill the penalty.
