As I mentioned in the GDT, I think failure to execute is what stood out most. The Rangers tried to be aggressive with Staal joining in the rush and it ended up with a goal against. Except for Hags, the players weren't doing much of anything right last night.
Anyone who's hating on Tort's strategy have an answer for this?
