Also if we can't beat Ottawa, we don't deserve to win the Cup.
Agreed but it's the worst matchup for the Rangers out of the three teams they could have faced at the end of the contests tonight. That couple with Henrik playing some of his worst hockey of the season doesn't bode well. I still think they take it but damn it would be pathetic for this organization if they got run out like that. It would prove all the nay sayers right.
How well is Ottawa built for the playoffs? They're so attack-minded, that if we can contain their speed and force it physical we should have no trouble. Got to say it's my least favourite out of the 3 possible as I recall we've had a lot of trouble with them this season.
Though it might sound simple-minded and obvious, they have to play Spezza physically. He screws up when he is hounded. That guy has really hurt the Rangers a lot, he needs to be controlled.
Simply put, Rangers have to ramp up the physical game.
well with the exception of the first period and lundqvist looking really off and pissed at the end the rangers players seemed to really dominate puck possession and need to do that from the drop of the puck...rangers will be hungry for wins to start the playoffs
