In John Tortorella's never-ending quest to jump start the Rangers enemic power play, Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports these power play units from practice yesterday... Unit 1: Nash, Stepan, Callahan, Richards and Girardi Unit 2: Brassard, Zuccarello, Pyatt, Moore and Del Zotto ...i say this all the time. As much as I love Girardi, he has no business being on the power play. How much better would that firt sunit look with Moore at the point with Richards? ...also, Pyatt? Really Torts? Really? Now's not exactly the time to give everyone a chance on the power play. Would much rather see Hagelin out there. Assuming Pyatt would be off the power play once Clowe is healthy. Conversly, the Capitals power play, was the best in the NHL this season with a 26.8% (44-for-164) success rate. Alex Ovechkin had 16 power play goals, while a finally healthy Mike Green had 4g and 10a. ...to put those numbers in perspective the Rangers had a pp success rate of just 15.7% (24-for-153). Yes, the entire Rangers team scored just FOUR more power play goals than Ovechkin and Green combined. Ugly ...the oft injured Green, was a big key in the Capitals late season resurgence and is someone the Rangers will need to focus a lot of attention on if they want to win this series.
