When you’re playing against a goalie whose goals against average is under two, it means your goalie is going to need to play a pretty good game.
Marc Andre Fleury pitched a shutout against the Rangers.
The game last night had a playoff feel to it and the Rangers should have gotten the message that they need to add more offense.
They’ve been the best team in the Eastern Conference most of the season and they’ve been doing it with great goal tending and good defense.
But, in the playoffs, everybody plays a tighter game, so, you better have plenty of scoring punch if you want to go deep.
Speaking of playing defense, did you watch Jordan Stahl last night?
He has plenty of critics who seem to be waiting for him to become Geno Malkin or Sidney Crosby, but the guy is a beast in the defensive end. He breaks up plays, clogs up lanes and digs the puck out of the corners as well as any player in the league.
And he has shown a good scoring touch this season.
He seems to be making it through this trading deadline frenzy without having his name brought up.
Let’s see if his critics can bite their tongues this Summer.
