Note: The Best The Rangers Had Played In Quite Some Time

The Rangers took the first five penalties of the game last night and had four shots on goal in the first period.

The Rangers didn’t take another minor penalty the rest of the game and followed their earlier lackluster play with three special teams goal and only allowing 13 shots in the final two periods.

After the game, on MSG, John Tortorella said “The last 30-35 minutes was the best we had played in a while.”

Tortorella added that the Rangers attention to details, their stinginess and blocking shots, was very good and that the Rangers were “doing the things they need to do”
