Dive into the exhilarating Rangers’ 4-3 comeback victory over the Nashville Predators. Peter Laviolette’s lineup magic sparked the comeback in the win.
The first time the New York Rangers faced off against the Nashville Predators on October 19th was a downer: A sluggish 4-1 defeat at a frustrated Madison Square Garden. However, the Rangers snagged revenge at Bridgestone Aena with a 4-3 victory, showing how much they’ve turned things around since that stinker.
The win was the league-best Blueshirts (17-4-1) eighth comeback win, tied for the NHL lead. They’re also 7-0-0 when tied after two periods, which tops the league.
Vincent Trocheck led the effort. He might not have bagged the winning goal on paper, but he owned the contest. Amid every big play, Trocheck made things happen. Trocheck wrapped up the day with three points – a goal and two assists. Yet the most significant impact he made was at the faceoff dot. Trocheck won 73.1% of draws, pushing his league-leading win rate to 64% for the season. Two-time reigning coach of the month, Peter Laviolette had his back, relying on Trocheck’s faceoff magic in critical situations.
Trocheck brought the spark the team needed and caused chaos in front of the Preds’ net. `While injuries have hit the team, Trocheck’s been the steady force, ranking third with 20 points – six goals and 14 assists. Undoubtedly, he’s one of the MVPs holding it down for the Blueshirts.
