2016 PLAYOFFS ROUND 1, GAME #5: PENGUINS VS. RANGERS- APRIL 23, 2016
Projected Goalie Match-Up
Pens Bullet Points
- Weather The Storm: Weather the inevitable NY game-opening onslaught from a desperate team in NY, and bide time defensively until they run a few laps up/down the ice & settle into the game.
- Rise Above: Stay out of the frays and remember to preserve the team's health, as the Rangers will be nasty and more physical in an elimination game.
- (Most Importantly) Let NY Beat Themselves: Just like in Game 4, get to the "Pens game" and let the Rangers implode trying to deal with that stifling offense. Keep Lundqvist off his game with high pressure. And then let NY take stupid penalties, and make them pay for them on the powerplay.
