Score more consistently.
The New York Rangers have scored 119 goals this season. Not bad. But if they want to contend with the Pens and the Flyers they need to rely on their offense more. That means Marion Gaborik has to be a star and stay healthy. If that can happen they should be ok.
Get Marty Biron playing well.
If Biron plays well, then John Tortorella will have no problem getting him some playing time. Down the stretch and in the postseason Henrik Lundqvist will be playing every game. He'll need his rest. The only way to get it is to rely on Biron.
Help Michael Del Zotto find his game.
Del Zotto was a super rookie. His sophomore year has been a struggle. He's been a healthy scratch way too much. They need him to get back to form.
The Rangers will be in great shape with Ryan Callahan and Erik Christensen back in the lineup. Callahan is the heart and soul. Christensen adds depth and is awesome in the shootout. They need them back.
I believe this a playoff team. With a little help, maybe even more than that.
