Devils Vs. Rangers, 2012 NHL Playoffs: Did New Jersey Find The Answer For Henrik Lundqvist?

The New York Rangers have an issue with taking commanding series leads and the best example of that was Monday, when the Blueshirt were beaten handily by the New Jersey Devils, 4-1, In Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final. The victory for the Devils helped them tie the best-of-seven series at 2-2.

Overall, the results were really good for the SB Nation blog In Lou We Trust, who thinks the Devils may have found a way to stop Rangers' goaltender Henrik Lundqvist:

Tonight, the Devils wailed on the Rangers in terms of hockey and finally solved Lundqvist. The Rangers' response was to get chippy, to get nasty, and they end up receiving with a trip back to MSG with a loss. I'd call that a decisive result.

Meanwhile, the Rangers' blog, Blueshirt Banter, says to take command of the series now, New York needs to win it:

Here is one of the most compelling stats of these playoffs (Carp was tweeting it during the game): With an opportunity to take a two-game lead in the playoffs the Rangers are 0-7. 0-for-7. And now if they want to take a two-game series lead against the New Jersey Devils they need to win the series 4-2.

Game 5 will be played Wednesday night at 8 p.m. on NBC Sports Network.
