Miller thinks the game. The smaller Rangers forwards are trying to use their speed outside. Miller actually moves into areas where there is open ice. The difference between a first round pick and one who isn't. Hockey sense.
Hagelin and Erixon have been fairly invisible, too.
One thing I noticed is that McIlrath loves stick checking and he is very good at breaking up plays with it.
Excellent point. He uses his body along the boards but sticks primarily to stick checking in front. He is very good at it, but i think he may want to try and be little more physical in front of the net.
Also, has anyone else noticed that McIlrath seems to have some balance issues? It seems that when he hits or gets physically involved, i see him on one leg a lot.
