5) J.T. Miller vs. Colorado
In a game that the Rangers ran away with, Miller had the standout goal. Even with Chris Kreider’s hat trick, it was Miller’s second period tally that stood as the game-winner.
And what a goal it was.
After Avalanche defenseman Tyson Barrie crossed the blue line and dropped a pass that nobody picked up, Miller was off to the races. He picked it up, took a couple strides into the offensive zone, and unleashed an absolute cannon. The slapshot caught Avalanche goalie Calvin Pickard unaware, going far-side and off the crossbar and in.
I was at this game, and let me tell you: this was the best slapshot any Ranger has taken in years.
