With the second month of the season coming to a close, the New York Rangers have found themselves moving in the right direction. They are currently sitting in third place in the Metropolitan Division, only six points behind the Pittsburgh Penguins for first.
Expectations, much like the Boston Bruins, have changed greatly. It’s not just about staying in games anymore, it’s about playing a full-60 minute battle that showcases the skill and grit of the roster.

Forget what he said about Thomas. Julien set the tone by stressing the importance of playing as a team, in order to be successful. It was a common theme that came full circle. The Bruins needed to go back to the basics and play their game in order to win. After a bumpy first period, it’s exactly what they did.
