Exactly, the Rangers had 4 defenseman log over 40 mintues in that game.

In comparison, the Caps, who were able to roll 3 pairs, only had 1 go over 40 minutes and he barely made it [didn't hit 41] compared to Del Zotto, Girardi, Staal, and McDonagh who all cleared it by quite a bit [43+, 44+, 49+, and 53+ () respectively]

Then everyone wanted to know why we suddenly couldn't play defense against New Jersey. Well, having 6 of them would do wonders, I think.
