Adam Rotter:

  • Overtime was needed but the Rangers picked up the two points that I felt they deserved in this game. For a long stretch my biggest takeaway was another game where the Rangers defended a lead and won, that didn’t happen, but they still played well for most of this game and got some great goaltending when it was needed.
  • These are games that the Rangers are winning more of lately and it shows how this team is growing and learning to do what is needed to win. There is still a lot to improve upon but you can see the progress the Rangers are making through each month of the season.
  • Ryan Strome is benefiting from getting to play with Artemi Panarin but he has had a good season and been productive in his own right. He’s built on what he did last year and is making a case to be part of things, and Panarin’s center, for years to come.
  • At this point it’s more surprising when Panarin and Mika Zibanejad don’t have multi-point and excellent games.
  • So it’s two in a row and now the Rangers head out to Western Canada for the Oilers, Flames, Canucks and 2020.
