My 3 Rangers stars
- Artemi Panarin led the way offensively with a goal and two assists. He scored the key tying goal late in the second period, then did his thing setting up Chris Kreider on the power play and then Andrew Copp in overtime. His passing is simply awesome and his shot is devastating, when he decides to shoot.
- Andrew Copp was outstanding, scoring the winning goal, winning 60% of his faceoffs and second on the team with five shots. He’s done a fine job filling at center for Ryan Strome.
- Chris Kreider is the Rangers’ Mr Clutch and he continues his amazing run to 50 goals. One more power play goal and he owns the franchise record and he is nine goals behind Jaromir Jagr’s club record of 54 goals with 14 games to play. He may not set the record, but he has a good chance to be the team’s fourth 50 goal scorer.
