- Well they certainly found a way to win that one and come away with two points after being less than a second away from coming away with zero.
- It was just a great effort and push with K’Andre Miller’s tying goal and then extra efforts from Mika Zibanejad and Artemi Panarin to set up Adam Fox.
- Fox is just incredible. It’s amazing that he continues to get better because he’s played at such a high level the last few years and he’s just magic with the puck. He’s so calm, so confident when he has the puck and the little fake he made before going to his backhand on the winner is what makes him such an elite player. He more than deserves to be sent to the All-Star game, but I hope he doesn’t and he can take that time to rest up for the rest of the season.
- I thought that the Rangers played alright during this game, especially as the game went on, but Dallas was very stout defensively, broke up tons of passes and plays in the middle and had a great goaltending performance. It was a performance that most nights would have gotten the Rangers two points….and in the end it did.
- It sure seemed like the takeaway from this one was going to be the Rangers going 0-4 on the PP and possibly needing a shakeup, besides Alexis Lafreniere stepping in for the injured Chris Kreider, or change in strategy. While it’s not the big takeaway from the game, scoring with 0.9 seconds left and then winning in OT is always going to be the headline, but their lack of success on the PP should have cost them the game. They are either overthinking things and just need to go back to letting Mika Zibanejad fire shots or they need to shift things around and present a different look.
- Igor Shesterkin was very good. I’d expect Jaro Halak to face Montreal on Sunday and then Shesterkin to face Columbus on Monday.
- That was a scary collision between Julien Gauthier and Sammy Blais. It may not have been the case, but it looked like multiple teeth went flying after they collided. Tough break for Gauthier as he got knocked out for the second straight game. I’m guessing Jake Leschyshyn will get in against Montreal.
- So they come away with two points and are now tied with the Devils, though the Devils still have two games in hand. This team is really coming together, they are really showing a belief and confidence in their ability to battle back and never be out of a game. It’s just such a far cry from how and where things were not all that long ago when things were spiraling. Now things are breaking their way, they are climbing the standings and showing who they can be.
- Next up is a back-to-back with Montreal and Columbus. These are two more games that good teams take care of and we will see if they can build off the two big comeback wins this week.
