Game Seven Magic
Iconic. The 2015 conference semi-finals will probably go down as one of the most memorable playoff series in Ranger history. Stepan, as all Rangers fans know, was a big part of that.
Even before the overtime winner in game seven, Stepan made big plays to keep the Rangers alive. Most notably in game five when the whole world (including myself) was screaming for him to shoot and then he calmly dished the puck to Ryan McDonagh for the game winner.
Then in game seven, well everyone knows how that ended.
Stepan will live on in Ranger history for that goal he scored against the Capitals. It was the second time in as many years that the Rangers rallied from a 3-1 deficit in a series and I don’t know if anyone will get tired of hearing Doc Emrick say, “Stepan. In overtime. The Rangers move on too Tampa.”
