Couple observations. I'm pretty much okay with Eminger as our No.6 guy--but as a top 4 defenseman that's a problem. I miss Stralman already. Hamrlik I suppose was a better option than Gilroy or Bickel--kind of thinking though if you wanted all in--turn up the heat the Rangers would give Mcilrath a shot.

I don't know if Asham deserved being scratched (he's had some nice moments for us in the playoffs) but the Rangers had a better forecheck out of their 4th line by far last night with the new line of Newbury, Dorsett and Haley. I liked that line--there was a lot more of a push back. Richards was just not doing it in any capacity.

After Lundqvist McDonagh was probably our best player last night. Excellent on defense and he was pushing the play into Boston's end all night long. We need better play from Del Zotto.

Boyle always picks it up in the playoffs. Great goal by Kreider.
