Goal #1: Against Brian Elliott (STL)- 09 OCT 2014
The team opened their 2014-2015 season on the road against the St. Louis Blues. The game was highlighted by a surprising multi-goal game for teammate Rick Nash.
On this play, the Rangers unveiled their fast, up-tempo play that would be their signature for the rest of the season. Chris Kreider’s goal gave the Rangers the one-goal lead in the third period, which was the second of four goals scored between the two teams in the last 30 minutes.
The Rangers would win 3-2 off Nash’s second goal. However, Kreider’s speed was on full display this play. He took a perfect pass up ice and finished the job, by scoring on Brian Elliott‘s stick side.
Not a bad way to kick off your season!
