The last time we had a 2 goal lead they gave up a goal after less then a minute, after successfully protecting a 1-0 lead for 2 and a half periods.
I expect us to win this series, but have zero expectation of winning by more then 1 or 2 goals (with 2 goals being a RARE case)
This team is allergic to not only greater than 1 goal leads in games, but also more than 1 game leads in a series.
Time to change that! This will be a tough game with the quick turnaround, especially considering how exhausting the caps series was. Make it impossible for the Devils to gain solid scoring chances and get pucks and traffic towards Marty and the Rangers will win.
I think this could fix our PP woes... And play the number 2 unit more often/faster especially if things are not working out with the number one line (as has not been the case previously). Stop employing 5 on 5 grinder dump and chase tactics with a man advantage - let the creativity flow and release the hemmed up mountains of hockey sense wanting to be released when up one man !!! Dammit!
