The Rangers winning their home opener was one of the best moments of the season. They did it against their cross town rivals the New York Islanders; a team they have struggled against in the past.

The Rangers have struggled against the New York Islanders in the past. Last season, they didn’t win a single game against the Islanders.

The win propelled the Rangers into the season the way they wanted to. They scored plenty of goals and did enough defensively to get the job done.

At the end of the day, is there anything sweeter than beating the Islanders? Why yes there is, beating them on opening night to make the Rangers 1-0-0, and the Islanders 0-1-0.
