It was the playoffs and the intensity usualy jump but still I expected a more hard-fought battle.
I don't know, going by the first 2 periods, I liked the defense we played more than we did in the playoffs. Not that we needed to play great defensively since the Habs looked like ****. However, in the playoffs instead of the neutral zone we'd spend 90% of the game blocking shot in their own zone. Also, I don't like how you're hinting like the Habs had their way with the Rangers. Through the first 2 periods the Rangers outplayed the Habs. Both teams played like ****. Pretending like one team had their way with the other is disingenuous.
