Honestly, smart move by Torts to get into the head of the biggest offensive threat on the Sens, and a bit of damage control by the 'Stache in game 2 to try and reverse it.
I thought it was a genius tactic by MacLean.
Everything was going fine for the Rangers and was looking like a quick series at that point until Boyle got Carkner'D. We were shocked.
