Shut down the Ranger offense - This is a tall order. New York is averaging 3.9 goals per game in their last 11 contests. Rick Nash has 38 goals this season. Take away their time and space.
Be hard on their "D" - Play in the Rangers end as much as possible. Make their defensemen work, apply pressure, and win the battles in the corners.
Win the goaltending battle - Rangers will get scoring chances. Howard needs to be razor sharp.
