Rangers got soft starting in the first round of the playoffs last year. I'm not sure if it was right away or as the series progressed, but the team that led the Eastern Conference last year was a team where if you got in the their face they were going to come at you. The team that played in the playoffs took a step back from that. You don't need to have a line brawl to start every game, no doubt, but sometimes there are times where you need a scrap.

I think having that attitude last year of, "If we need to, we are going to fight you" had a lot of weight in how the team performed last year, and at some point last April they lost that, and it hasn't returned this year.
