We have had some good outings in past years combating this with speed.
However we were never able to maintain the pace, often not for 60 Mins.
let alone a 4-7 game series. Small teams wear quicker.
Habs-Rangers is a bit more even. We've beaten them brutally a fair share of times and they've beaten us a fair share of times. The thing that characterizes Habs-Rangers is that every year, there seems to be at least one game in which the game between the two teams is boring as ****. Torts isn't that great of a defensive system coach, imo. He just has a thing for blocking shots.
Columbus has the aggressive forecheck that causes us trouble, but their backend is weak.
For Philly, I don't think they are that stout defensively, but their skill players do feast on our defense and hence they always manage to get a win against us.
