New York Rangers: Saviors of the universe

It is highly recommended that you listen to this song while reading the article (h/t poeman from HF Boards). After a brutal 2-0 shutout loss in game 5, the New York Rangers actually got back to what helped them score 5 goals in 2 games during this series: forecheck heavily, create a turnover in the offensive zone, get bodies in front of the net, and cash in on the rebound.
