The Rangers dropped the first 2 games in the Buffalo series in 2007. Looked out of place but turned it around. This series reminds me of that series. Won game 3 in double OT on Rozsival's goal. Won game 4. Should have won game 5. Tyutin was 2 strides way from the red line and he iced the puck. Drury scored and Buffalo later win the game in OT with Betts in the box.
Rangers came out hard and physical in game 3. It was also a Sunday NBC game. It is a series. The Rangers need to take more liberties with the Caps top players. Finish Green every time. Hit him hard. Green has concussion issues. Go after him. Even Semin. You hit those guys early. They'll melt into the ice.
In one of those scrums,smack Ovechkin in the mouth. Grab him by his sweater and scrape his head into the ice. He runs around hitting people and where's Matt Cooke when he you need him. Cooke kneed him this season and for once Cooke was right.
I'd like to see different lines.. Re-unite the Wolski-EC-MZA line.. Also Feds-Boyle-Prust..
Pair up Avery+Gaborik. Avery doing thing should raise body-temperatures on the ice a few notches. Hoping a brawl breaks out and Gaborik gets a glove in his face, which will hopefully piss him off some.
I would like to see Dubi-Stephan-Zucca
But isn't it confirmed that Zucca and Eminger are scratched?
