The neutral zone may sound like a benign place on the ice but in Game 1, the Rangers viewed it as nothing short of a quagmire.
That is one area in which the team vows to be diligent during Game 2 Sunday afternoon when the Eastern Conference best-of-seven semifinal series resumes against the Bruins at TD Garden.
To a man, the Rangers said they need to limit turnovers, forecheck better, and make crisper, faster passes up the ice.
“We have to try to get our forecheck going a little more, hold onto some pucks in their end and create offense off of that,’’ said captain Ryan Callahan. “Our biggest weakness was not spending enough time in their end.”
