The Rangers have woken up, and the Pens are sleepwalking.
RANGERS TURNING THE TIDE IN GAMES 5 AND 6
3. They’ve been winning more battles. Simple as that. The Rangers came out and put it all on the table right from the get-go in Game 6, wanting that first goal more than anything. They got it, and that was it.
2. The Rangers’ strong suit, defense, has been playing like it. Dan Girardi, Ryan McDonagh, and Marc Staal have played their best games of the series. Not too concerned about what their advanced stats are, but we’re guessing they’re pretty good since they’re passing the eye test.
1. Pens’ stars have gone from zero to jammed real quick. Dominic Moore is in Crosby’s head, especially. Neal got a 10-minute misconduct at the end of this one.
