Goal #2: Against Cory Schneider (NJD)- 21 October 2014
This was the first of four regular season games between the rival Rangers-Devils. On this night, the team traveled to the Prudential Center.
In the first period, the Rangers were the recipients of their first power play of the game, after Jaromir Jagr was called for tripping.
As the play unfolded, the team did a good job of keeping the puck alive in the offensive zone. Ryan McDonagh took a shot from the backend, which Devils netminder Cory Schneider was able to stop. However, the puck rebounded off his pads to a opportunistic Kreider, who was sneaking in towards the net for any scoring chance.
The call was from Devils broadcasters Chico Resch and Ken Daneyko. Just something about hearing them call a goal against their team is music to any Rangers fan’s ears.
