What Rangers fans nowadays (including myself) don't get to see and understand is that teams can win games while playing poorly. There are games where we play an excellent game but lose anyway and rarely do we play bad and win without too much difficulty. In a defensive system, playing bad means you're either A) generating 0 offense or B) being exposed defensively which usually means goals against for fans to remark the game as being defensively horrible. There's the 1-0 Isles game but that was hardly an easy game and it was won by Henrik.

Other teams can play bad, but a few timely goals can make it 2-0, 3-1 and the game dies down after that from both sides. We don't score and always find ourselves in 1 goal situations so playing bad is never an option until the game ends or the other team gets deflated from being down goals.

In other words, we need timely goals that we never seem to notch which is why it's crucial to give the offensive players more ice time as opposed to playing Boyle and the non offensive players that much ice time. Another reason why we need the 3rd line to score goals. There's no better timely goals than any goal from the bottom 6.
