3. Rangers 1, Lightning 0

Stop us if you heard this one before, but the Rangers won a thriller 1-0 in overtime. Antti Raanta was in the net, and Mika Zibanejad scored the big winner. Okay, we swear we did not simply combine the first two games on the list.

The Tampa Bay Lightning were battling for their playoff lives, while the Rangers were trying to get back into their winning ways. Antti Raanta went up against Andrei Vasilevskiy, and the two goalies were brick walls between the pipes. Neither team wanted to budge in a physical, intense game.

Overtime brought plenty of chances as per usual, but the ending was the most thrilling. After Ondrej Palat nearly scored, Mika Zibanejad ended up with a breakaway the other way. Zibanejad made no mistake about it, giving the Rangers another 1-0 overtime victory.
