Losing Dubinsky is starting take its toll in this series; he may not be scoring but he's strong on the puck and has more creativity than anyone in the bottom six right now. Losing him means losing speed and time spent in the offensive zone.

Ditto with MZA to a lesser extent but more for PP and creativity.

The second Krieder was having a bad game (and not to fault him he has like all of ten games of NHL experience) it handicapped the Rangers because more time for Feds, Prust, etc. guys who can't score.

Prust is losing somewhere between $5,000-$10,000 for every shift he takes. I forget he's even there anymore.

Not to criticize Hagelin who has been great but he needs to shoot more. His offense hasn't been there. Can't get too mad because this is his first time through this.

As the other poster said, they need one or two guys to step up other than Gaborik and now Anisimov. They need to shoot more if they want to win in this series. The Caps shotblocking is totally in their heads. They're playing shocked and baffled that someone else is doing what they to do everyone else.
