Just 1 goal more please...
So true and the same things being said about an off game for Holtby were said about Anderson. It's not happening. These goalies aren't playing lights out, they're playing decent to good. The Rangers are not getting many quality chances, let alone high quality chances, and the ones they do either go in, or are screwed up some how and are put wide or in to the logo.
The only way we're seeing an offensive outburst is if the Rangers start making some nice plays and getting more high quality scoring chances. So far this playoff season they have not shown they are capable of such things, especially consistently or often.
Some credit does go to the opposing teams defenses however. They've been better than their goalies have.
