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.
Barclays Center in Brooklyn New York. New York Rangers vs. New York Islanders. Rangers took an early lead in the 1st, but in the second quarter Islanders came back aggressively scoring two goals.They lead 2-1. Defensive player, Nick Holden, scored the 1st goal of the game for the Rangers. Islanders Left Wing, Andrew Ladd, scored two goals along with the Center, Anders Lee, who scored another goal to put them up. Battle of NY here, who going to win this?
Going into the last quarter the Islanders are still wining 2-1 with under 17 mins left. Long game to go, so it is still close. Looking like Islanders going to win this battle, BUT can’t say so yet still some hockey left to play. Hockey on a Thursday night. Puck it out, LOL. Who going to show up and close out the game? The Goalie, Defense man, Left or Right Wing or the Center? We will see. The game is close and we will see what will happened, hmmm.
Jimmy Vesey, the Left Wing, scored for the Rangers to tie the game up and Islanders Left Wings also scored. Nikolay Kulemin to put the Islanders up in the game. Battle of the Left Wings, I see. This is getting serious. 3-2 Islanders’ lead. Islanders not letting go this lead go. Getting intense in here. Oooooo, get ready! Islanders finished the game up with scoring one more goal to win 4-2. Good game by the New York Islanders. Top Skaters were: Nikolay Kulemin for the Islanders and Rick Nash for the Rangers.
Islanders won this NY Battle tonight in a full arena. Wining. Heart. Brainy Versatility.
NHL’s Monday Night was a match up between two good teams and it was a fight till the end. New York Rangers went over to play the Columbus Blue Jackets at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. This game was about who ever had the most shots on goal with the most efficiency will win this game. Blue Jackets had more shots with 32 and Rangers got 23 shots. They were going at it. This game was going back forth. Ranger had the most efficiency so who you think won this game.
It took till the 3rd quarter to finish the game off. Blue Jackets finished this game in the last period allowing two goals for the Rangers to win. Both teams had no power plays goals BUT did had some hits in. The winning team had less hits with 5 than the beaten which has 8 hits. You can tell this game was going to be a good one and a close from both team records. They have similar records. Rangers are 37-18-1 and Blue Jackets are 35-15-5.
Left Wing Jimmy Vesey who looks like a New Yorker, by the way and Antti Raanta the Goal tender were the reason the rangers won. The goal tender saved 30 shots out of 32 so that is pretty good. The game was final at 3-2 Rangers, so they went away and came back with a W. Went in the Blue Jackets house took their cookies and some milk getting that double dip in since they got the WIN, Looool.
Monday NHL. Brainy Versatility.
