I'd like to see the physicality continue, but I'm not sure if you want to go into Philly looking to pick a fight. They've wont their last 4 straight on home ice. They aren't necessarily Montreal or the Lightning here. The Habs are a pretty soft team - the Lightning not so much. But Philly can throw down with the best of them and engage in a nasty game if they have to, which would put the Rangers at a disadvantage IMO.
I think the best way to approach this game is to continue the hard work on the boards and on the puck. Continue to forecheck and bang, but don't give them a reason (Voros) to get the crowd in it with an early fight or taking a dumb penalty trying to get things going. Gotta walk a fine line and concentrate on the defensive side of the puck a little more, especially early to keep them off the board at home where they've been hot as of late.
Hopefully the goal scoring continues, but im not betting on it. I sat through what seemed like a week of the Rangers not scoring at all, only to miss the Versus scoring explosion game because my DVR ****ed up. It will probably be right back to a scoring famine with my luck. I really dont care as long as they find a way to get two points in what i think is going to be a tough road game.
Keep your heads on tonight boys! Convert on the PP!!!
Emery has looked bad, let's not help him find his confidence!
