Alex Ovechkin, the Left Wing, scored in the 17th minute on a power play with assist from the two Centers: Lars Eller and Evgeny Kuznetsov. In the second period to tie the game up, after the New York Ranger took the lead in the first period, with Right Wing, Mats Zuccarello, scoring the goal getting assisted by Chris Kreider and Mika Zibanejad. The game was tie till the 3rd period. I don’t know what Brook Orpik was doing getting two penalties in the 3rd period. The first one was in the 15th minute with 2 minutes penalty for interference and in the 8th minute for holding. The game was already tough enough can’t be letting penalties like that stop you. That’s how the New York Rangers gets Power Plays and make the game easier for them.
The game was closed over in the 3rd period in the 7th minute and 49 seconds. Defense Man, Ryan McDonagh, scored a goal getting that nice assist from Rick Nash and Derek Stepan. Ryan McDonagh looks like a Defensive…geez…broo looks touugh. That was the game winner since the New York Rangers won 2-1. New York Rangers doing good this week with the exception of the New York Islanders lost. They playing tough now like grrrr.
Both goalies played good this game as it was a close game. But the team who wants it the most pulled it out. Henrik Lundqvist, Ranger Goalie, had the most saves with 31 (.969 pct) while Washington Capitals’ Philipp Grubauer had only 28 saves (.933). Henrik Lundqvist ties Chris Osgood with 401 wins for the 11th most wins in NHL history for a goalie. New York in Hockey day in America on NBC pretty good on a Sunday. Looking good in a packed arena in New York City, Madison Square Garden.
Oooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooo. Game Time. Brainy Versatility.
