Were the Penguins terrible tonight? Yes.

Did the Rangers capitalize on their chances? Yes.

The latter is the main difference from this new look team and the team we had just yesterday. Was Brassard's amazing passing "because of the other team"? Was Richards' amazing passing "because of the other team"? These are skill plays we haven't seen from our prior team.

Yeah, the sample size is small, and I'm not ready to say the Gaborik trade is 100% for the better (although the Clowe trade is easily a 100% for me, I was behind that move from the beginning)., but there are positive signs here. I don't see the point of just saying "oh, the Penguins were terrible" when there were very positive signs from our side that probably would have been there even if the Pens were playing better. The mindset of the team was very clear and it was a good mindset. They seemed a lot more confident. This could be a big "turning point" game, IMO. Let's hope that's what happens.
