Bruins VS Rangers

Both these teams are part of what is known as the original six NHL teams. needless to say there is a lot of history between these two great NHL team franchises. The Bruins and Rangers are known for there great defensive style of hockey play, and they look for their defensive strengths to help turn the puck over and generate goal scoring opportunity's.

In this series, one can only think about offensive power houses. These two teams love, and know how to hit the back of the net. Un Like the Bruins VS Rangers matchup, these teams have the ability to go Coast to coast, and generate awesome scoring chances.

With the return of some key players in the senators line up, I can only imagine that the senators will be at there best ,And they have the ability to put the high power juggernaut penguins on there heels. This round 2 playoff match up comes down to finishing scoring chances, and staying disciplined. If the Senators can shutdown sidney Crosby, then they have a great chance to move on to the eastern conference finals.

What a classic old school hockey style Match-Up any old time and new time hockey fans can appreciate this great western conference round 2 playoff battle. Both teams are great on both sides of the puck, both teams love to skate, and use there speed to generate unique scoring chances.
