A couple thoughts ahead of tonight's game...

1. Mike Smith was a huge factor against us in the Tortorella dump and chase regime. Of NYR can do an effective job carrying the puck over the blue line, his puckhandling won't be nearly as big.

2. The Coyotes have a very offensive minded blueline without a ton of muscle. That isn't to suggest they are bad defensively, but guys like Nash, Pouliot and Boyle should be leaning on them, trying to drive to the net.

3. We're an out-and-out better roster than the Coyotes, but they have some difference makers on their roster. Vrbata is tricky, and a season removed from 35 goals. We all know what Ribeiro can do.

It's not a great team or a very angry visiting environment that we're playing.
