Capitals Need To Adjust To The Rangers Style Of Play

from Bruce Arthur of the National Post,

This is New York Rangers hockey, and the Capitals had better get used to it. Their goaltending will need to be better; their focus will have to improve. And Alex Semin, Nicklas Backstrom and Ovechkin have combined for 12 points in eight playoff games. They’ve got to be stars, eventually.

“Yeah, absolutely,” said Capitals centre Nicklas Backstrom. “We’ve got to start scoring goals, and I think we created a couple chances tonight, we hit the post [four] times I think, so it’s tough, but overall we didn’t play a good game. We’ve got to play a little tighter, and just be better. We weren’t good enough.”
