I was able to get the main board to discuss actual hockey after last game. Not sure if it's going to be worth the effort this time around.

Washington did not forecheck as heavily early in this game. This allowed the Rangers to set up. They took a few dumb penalties, which hurt them. Taking a look at the yearly numbers, Washington is a very frequently penalized team. The Rangers are not.

That 1-3-1 power play they have is still fascinating to me. I'd encourage the Rangers to emulate it, but they don't really have a right handed shot on the left side like Ovechkin.
