ottawa's being carried by one of the best rookie cores in the league, man. have you not been watching this game? their breakouts and passing have been getting behind the defence all game long.
That's because of SPEED, not because of TALENT.
They skate opponents into the ground. The only way to beat them is to keep them bottled up in their zone and beat them up physically. The Rangers don't do that to anyone. The Rangers wait to block shots and counter. That doesn't work against a team like Ottawa that can outskate the Rangers to loose pucks and can outskate the Rangers looking to counterattack.
