The Rangers came out flying in this game, as evidenced by the first goal 19 seconds into the game. They played the way we’ve been expecting them to play all year, but haven’t seen it enough. They forechecked, generated offensive chances, and capitalized on their chances. They had their shaky moments, such as the defensive breakdown that led to the first goal, but their good play outweighed their letdowns. This was a big two points for this club, and it’s even better that they got it in regulation. On to the goals:
Rangers 1, Jets 0
Nash draws two, that’s what he does.
