Stop it right there. Emery forced to go post-to-post. 

This sequence begins with a turnover at the Ranger blue line. The puck is chipped back out to the neutral zone where the Rangers scoop it up and bolt into the Flyers’ end with a three-on-two. Martin St. Louis was able to score because the Rangers were able to make Emery move side to side. Emery’s lateral quickness leaves much to be desired, and it is one thing Steve Mason can do very well.

The Rangers moved the puck from one side of the ice to the other in a matter of seconds. Braydon Coburn could have defended this a little better. If the game plan was to keep Emery square to the puck, Coburn should have kept his stick in the passing lane and forced Derek Stepan to shoot the puck. It is not ideal to allow this, but Emery may have had a better chance at making the save on Stepan.
