Where did I say that positioning didn't play a part in it? The fact of the matter is it's tougher to get around a 6'4 200lb player in great position than it is to get around one who is 5'11. They not only cover more area with a larger wingspan, but they can also outmuscle players.

The Kings clogged up the middle, and were then able to get in on the puck carrier before he left the zone to create a turnover or muscle the puck off of him. The Rangers have a lot of guys who can skate through the neutral zone, but not many who can truly skate with the puck through traffic. The Kings have that in spades.
