Last night the Rangers were awarded two power plays and Ryan Callahan scored the game winner on the Rangers second power play.
Prior to the game, John Tortorella spoke with Sam Rosen on MSG about the struggling power play and explained what course of action the team needed to take, “we do not have a real big shot from the point. The biggest thing we need to do is get shots to the net. If we are going to have any chance it is going to have to kick in here quickly. Hopefully we can get some confidence by scoring some ugly goals”
The Rangers recorded three shots on their two power plays, Marian Gaborik had one in the first period, Michael Del Zotto had one in the second period and Ryan Callahan scored the game winner.
At Rangers Report, Carp writes “on the second PP, they had Dan Girardi on one point, Del Zotto on the other—though he didn’t stay there—Richards won the draw, Nash made the play to Del Zotto, Callahan did what he does on the rebound. That’s the way you do it.”
Andrew Gross writes at Ranger Rants, “The Rangers did a good job of not letting the Flyers settle into blocking shooting and passing lanes, Callahan’s goal off quick passes from Nash and Michael Del Zotto being the prime example.”
