Really, with no Straka or Hossa in the lineup (and this is not saying anything negative about those two), aside from the top line, the Rangers next 3 lines all play a north-south game. Those 3 lines all play with some sandpaper and drive to the net.

Defensively, the Mara trade looks great. Girardi has been steady.

Lastly, and I hope that Fedoruk gets well soon, but that punch was about 30 years in the making. From Schultz to Brown to Fedoruk. With that said, I hope that Fedoruk makes a quick recovery.
Different circumstanses but this run is starting to look like the Devils super hot streak going into the playoff last year. Granted they were already in the playoffs when that streak started but they carried it into the playoffs. I probably just jinxed everything....
