The Rangers weren't great last night but they played with some energy the whole game of a back to back--which considering some of their other lackluster efforts previous was a good sign. As well IMO Henrik in the past two games looks to be like the goalie we all know and love. I think he's had a mediocre year so far and we need him to be better. If he can do that the Rangers will most probably make the playoffs.

Right now this team isn't as deep as it was last year and not nearly as tough. This factors into the subpar performance of our team so far as much as our problem of putting the puck in the net. The Rangers last year could roll 4 lines--and even if not scoring--they were skating, grinding, forechecking and feeding off each other's momentum. That consistency of keeping their opponents constantly on their heels is missing this year--as our third and fourth lines have mostly been a non-factor.
