It seems that the Rangers have sunk themselves into another hole. Once again they are 2-0 down in the series facing an in-form Bruins team with David Krejci leading the pack. Krejci is leading the post season in points with 16. He has accumulated 16 points in just 6 games. After taking a beaten in the first two games in Boston the Rangers are ready to fight their way back into the series at the Garden. The Ranger have been great at home this season having 70% win percentage and on a 9 home game winning streak. This has proven to be an advantage for the Rangers this season. Its going to take more than a home advantage to beat out the Bruins though. The Rangers will need to break down their defense as they are the key reason for the Bruins success this post Season, Boston already has 10 defensive goals and they are dominating in blocked shots this post season. The team is going to need to be more patient with their attack while keeping an eye out for Krejci. If the Rangers can pull wins in their next two games it will change the whole momentum moving towards that crucial game 5 at TD Garden and it will give the Rangers a chance at wining out the series.
