Dorsett: It’ll Be A War

After yesterday's practice the Rangers discussed what they expect from the Bruins in this series (via ESPN.com)…

Derek Dorsett…

“They’re a big, physical team. A heavy team. It’ll be a war.”

Brad Richards…

“That team has been the same type of team for three, four years. I don’t think much has changed there, even their lines. There’s a little difference, but we’ve seen Boston since they won the Cup that year. There aren’t going to be a lot of surprises. It’s gonna be about patience and a lot of defending, I imagine, and who sticks with it longer.”

Ryan McDonagh…

“Their top line is really clicking right now. Obviously, that’s going to be a task in itself to try and defend whoever’s out there with them. We’re gonna try to do it the same way we did against Washington, as a five-man unit, try to make them defend and wear them out that way.”

…i think Richards said it perfectly. What you see is what you get with the Bruins. They're going to try and physically dominate you playing a north/south game. It'll be up to the Rangers to match that toughness, while staying discipline.

…a couple of goals from Nash would be nice as well.

On the flip side, here's Patrice Bergeron on the Rangers…

"We know we're going to have to fight to get to the front, and fight to get our chances, we need to do that."

On overcoming the Rangers shot blocking strategy (via Boston.com)…

"It's about trying to find different ways, definitely try to fake some shots. At the same time, it's just create our chances, create some havoc in front of Lundqvist and get to the loose pucks, get to the rebounds."
