Yes, thanks to Hank, they were able to outlast the Sens and Caps in 2012. They were thoroughly outplayed by the Devils in 2012, and the Bruins in 2013.

If they play this way if and when playoff time comes, they can hang with teams like Pitt and Boston because they HAVE THE PUCK.

Beautiful hockey by the Rangers during this stretch.
I still worry about the lack of #1 center, lack of puck movers other than McDonagh, and lack of elite players.
