it wasnt the Buds best effort -they are tired

but a blind man can see theyre playing much harder defensively
theyre doing what it takes to win
-battling harder on the 1 on 1s
-the forwards are coming back harder and most of kidd's
big juicy rebounds were cleared as a result

the rangers went up the middle far too often on low percentage plays-

the rangers didnt cut off the middle and didnt give the required effort on the backcheck to help out the defense.
they looked like the leafs of about 3 weeks ago

the rangers arent out of the woods by any stretch
they dont have the speed or offense to compensate for those
loose defensive plays
that's not winning hockey
