The Rangers compete and defend. The Flyers did not compete and did not defend. Henrik Lundqvist does not give up cheap goals. The Panthers took Jersey to 7 games with their rotating goalie system. One game it was Jose Theodore and then it was Scott Clemmenson. And then it was Theodore only to see Theodore miss a game with an injury. Then Theodore returned for game 7. The Rangers defense is not the Panthers D which missed Jason Garrison for a handful of games. It is not the pathetic slop put out there by Philly. No wonder why Philly is salivating over giving Ryan Suter an 8 year contract with the $14M in salary and bonuses in the first year which they can do under the current CBA with the cap being $70M until the CBA expires in September. The Rangers have faced Erik Karlsson,Sergei Gonchar,Chris Phillips,Filip Kube,Jared Cowen,Mike Green,John Carlson,Karl Alzner,Denis Wideman and even Roman Hamrlik in the last 2 series. Craig Anderson and Braden Holtby did not give up many bad goals. Boston lost to the Caps with Holtby in 7 games. So they can't say its the Rangers popgun offense when the Caps defended well and Holtby played well against the Bruins too. Both the Sens and Caps have discussed how well the Rangers defend after they lost their series.
