Heart is a byproduct of chemistry, of which the Rangers this year are seriously lacking. No doubt there's a discrepancy in the team on paper between this year and last, but the intangibles they had last year aren't there this year. I think that's the biggest aspect.

Honestly, how good do you expect a team to be that lacks a true #1 or #2 defenseman, or a #2 center?

I also agree there were too many turnovers tonight, but that's to be expected with a team featuring 3 rookie defensemen in the lineup, and overall you had a defensive corp with 4 of the 6 players aged 25 and under.
