17:40 Rangers with some great energy so far here in the third. Big PP here. Gaborik on the bench as he is tried. 2nd unit is out.
16:50 On that last rush, Kreider looked like he was in offside no?
16:40 Camera's just showed Brad Richards watching himself on Glen Healy's monitor and then dropping the F-bomb re: his crossbar shot.
16:30 Rangers win the draw. Girardi blasts!!
THE GOAL: A perfect clean win to Girardi and he stepped in with a nice wrister to beat Brodeur clean on the blocker side!! Richards is the guy who won the draw!
15:40 A massive PP goal for the Rangers to put them up in a game where they have been heavily outplayed. Wow.
15:20 Interesting that Tortorella benched Richards on the earlier PP, and then he wins two huge draws .
14:40 Rangers with momentum now. McDonagh steps in to one!!
Wait, CHRIS KREIDER tipped it!!
THE GOAL: Kovalchuk missed the puck along the boards and it allowed McDonagh rifle it towards the net where Kreider was all alone coming from the corner. He put the perfect tip on it right beside Brodeur!
The first goal:
Dan Girardi (3) (Power Play)
Assist: Brad Richards
THE LAST GOAL:
Chris Kreider (5)
Assists: Ryan McDonagh, Derek Stepan
13:10 Devils answering back now with a great shift but Lundqvist just keeps making the huge saves.
@keven It's tough picturing ANYbody beating the Kings right now, but you never know in this low scoring games when both teams have stellar goaltending - as evidenced by tonight's game where the Rangers were outplayed for 2 periods.
PENALTY: RANGERS - STAAL - HOLDING THE STICK
Grabbed a hold of Carter's stick in the corner and didn't do a good job of hiding it.
@ Jonisawsom It has been a couple of stellar shifts in a row by the Devils since the two quick goals.
BTW - Rangers Dmen lead the playoffs with 15 goals now. Crazy. Girardi is leading all Dmen in scoring.
Rangers are up 5-4 in shots in this third period.
Did Glen Healy just roll out an early 90's "Not" joke again??
11:30 A do or die PP for the Devils.
11:15 Kovalchuk shot from the point is stopped by Lundqvist. Beauty glove save. Sending a msg.
11:10 I'm liking the Devils' urgency on this PP. Chance for Zajac in the slot!!
