Except that team was good, just not as good as people say here. They also accomplished more than their talent and style of play would allow them to most years. It's funny, I remember watching a game against the Leafs that year when we won 3-0 and realized that the Rangers had so few games where they completely shutdown the opposition that year, but Lundqvist was amazing and if the Rangers just had a good defensive game he wasn't giving up more than 1. People that wax poetic about that team's D, forget how important Lundqvist was that year. Like today's game was better than the vast majority of games we played defensively that year (not that we play like that every game).
