It seems that the Habs play a conservative style in this game. They don't pressure the puck much but are effectively breaking up passing and shooting lanes. That can work but they need to go on offense too. it seems they can't make a zone entry without a dump in. Might be that the Rangers are constantly playing with 3 Dmen, literally (they always have 3 guys waiting for Habs on their blueline.

Also, why is he in the bottom six?
Can't get a good scoring chance if you don't win faceoffs

They're surviving a wave of momentum. That can change.

Let's play the Ranger game... let them control and shoot for 15 minutes, get no goal and score in the last 5?

He can barely get a scoring opportunity.

Oh, there was sort of one.

Daneault, Plekanec, Shaw, Ott. When those are the four centreman you roster, you better believe you'll be in tight games and struggle to score. Turning point of the game were those power plays and getting nothing. Had a bad feeling after that...

Let's be honest here...Rangers deserve this series. Much faster. And more talent.

You saw the difference in the team's play right in this sequence. Rangers with their heavy forecheck. Habs with being static in their own zone.

They just showed a list of Pacioretty's slow starts in the first 4 games of the last 4 playoffs he's been in.
