- This was a very big test for the Rangers and, for the most part, they passed it. They got some breaks and favorable calls but they came back three times and played their best in the third period to tie, take the lead and win.
- For a stretch, especially in the first period, where it seemed like the big takeaway would be how fast Carolina is and how the Rangers struggled to keep up/match them. As the game went along the Rangers started to play better and match Carolina’s level.
- The Rangers get some borderline/iffy calls go their way and they were able to take advantage of them. It was just a strange game with the iffy reffing and then all deflection and sometimes double deflection goals, but good teams find a way to pull points out of games like this and the Rangers certainly did that.
- Another really strong game from Mika Zibanejad as he looks to be fully back in form and his line overall.
- K’Andre Miller will never be Adam Fox offensively, but he has shown a strong ability to be offensive at certain times.
- Next up is a potential trap game in Montreal on Thursday because the Devils (one point ahead and two games in hand) are on Saturday. Good teams get the job done in trap games and we’ll see if the Rangers can get the job done.
