Adam’s Thoughts:

  • This seemed like another game that was destined for OT, especially after Derek Stepan tied the game. A couple of defensive breakdowns later and the Rangers don’t pick up a point tonight.
  • Rick Nash was dominant tonight and showed how important going to the net is. Nash, Derek Stepan and Mats Zuccarello carried the offense tonight. Zuccarello though couldn’t seem to buy a goal.
