My 3 Rangers stars
should have had a shutout, losing it to an Alex Ovechkin shot with a minute left. While he didn’t have to stand on his head for the win, he did make a few outstanding saves and improved all of his league leading statistics.
The official three stars
- Alexis Lafreniere
- Igor Shesterkin
- Mika Zibanejad
The Rangers travel to Pittsburgh for their first meeting of the season with the Penguins on Saturday afternoon. The game will be televised nationally on ABC with gametime set for 3pm.
It is the first game of a back-to-back set of games as they return Sunday to play the Vancouver Canucks. The Rangers have passed Pittsburgh in the standings into second place so after this game, the Blueshirts will either be back in third place or three games ahead of the Penguins with a firmer grasp on second place. If the Rangers lose in overtime, they will be in a virtual tie with the Penguins.
It’s going to be a great weekend of hockey.
