New York Rangers Blueline Up To The Task In Game 2 Victory

Final Thoughts

Playoff hockey in the NHL is a hell of a lot different than regular season action.

The physicality gets ramped up and the intensity flies. For the most part, these six individuals did their job today. And, they did it under very pressing situations (no McDonagh, Skjei and McIlrath with no experience, and Klein missing seven minutes late in the game).

While Lundqvist did come up with a few gems, yielding only 31 shots against such a high-powered and hot, speedy offense in Pittsburgh can only be viewed as a positive.

We shall see what Game 3 brings.
