Their game, of course, is the 1-2-2 and 1-4 trap. The Bruins suffocated a rusty Rangers team, limiting them to 21 shots on goal. As Chris noted in the goal breakdown from the game, the first two Bruins goals were scored directly off miscues. Whether these miscues are sloppy line changes, missed defensive assignments, or bad rebounds, the Rangers need to tighten their coverage and put a focus on limiting these types of mistakes. Staying out of the box wouldn’t hurt either. In the opener, we didn’t see much of that patented 2-1-2 forecheck that has made the Rangers a pain to play against. We saw sloppiness, and an incredible urge to shy away from the dirty areas of the ice.  While the miscues above will correct themselves over time, the desire to play gritty Rangers hockey needs to come back. Suit elaborated that the Rangers might shift strategies, specifically in the defensive zone, but it may be some time before we see that shift from defensive zone collapse to defensive zone pressure. In the mean time, a collapsing strategy requires sound positioning. There are a bunch of areas that the Rangers will need to shore up before they hit their stride. This isn’t a must win, but it sure would be nice to split this week with the Bruins. Crazy Thought: No rust. Opposition Blog: Bruins Daily Tweet

Why Torts Pulled Lundqvist

One of the stranger sights in the Rangers 6-3 loss to the Penguins was John Tortorella's early hook on Henrik Lundqvist. He explains his reasoning here (via NY Post)... “I was not going to keep him in there. It wasn’t him. I wasn’t going to keep him in there with what was going on in front of him.” ...i bet Biron felt good about himself after hearing this. In...
