Now regarding our strong 3rd period play last year. It was not really about protecting leads (although we obviously held on to most leads as every team does). It was about coming into the 3rd tied or down a goal and winning the game. So, the impression you have that somehow our 3rd period success was a function of our unbelievable shut down 3rd line center prohibiting all opposing forwards from entering our zone, is complete and utter nonsense. And factually incorrect.
The Rangers were the only team in the NHL last year during the regular season, to not lose one game when leading after 2 periods....fact. And great, Halpern was awesome on faceoffs. he was also on the ice for the tying going and was skating around like a chicken with his head cut off.

Again, I'm not advocating Boyle in for Halpern. i think boyle should be in over asham.
