10:37PM: First Period:
- Arron Asham 2 (Assists: Chris Kreider 1)
- Taylor Pyatt 1 (Assists: Derek Dorsett 1, Steve Eminger 1)
- Michael Del Zotto 1 (Assists: Derick Brassard 6, Rick Nash 2)
- Ryan Callahan 1 (Unassisted)
- Mats Zuccarello 1 (Assists: Derick Brassard 7, Steve Eminger 2)
- I thought that if the Rangers were going to win tonight they were going to need the same game from Henrik Lundqvist that they had last night and a goal or two from the Rangers top guys. Henrik Lundqvist held up his end of the bargain but the role of top players scoring was played by Aaron Asham, Taylor Pyatt and Michael Del Zotto.
- Shutting out a team in a game six and game seven is an amazing feat for Henrik Lundqvist. I’m not sure it’s quantifiable how much he means to this team.
- Derick Brassard was acquired to provide depth and slot in behind Derek Stepan and Brad Richards down the middle. Right now, he is the Rangers top center and best forward in the playoffs.
- All the sudden the Rangers have given Marc Staal another chance to return to the lineup. There is no guarantee that he will, but at least the Rangers have given him and Ryane Clowe and Darroll Powe a chance.
- Next up is the Boston Bruins and former Rangers captain….. Jaromir Jagr
