No play personified how the Rangers continue to sellout on the penalty kill than Dominic Moore blocking a Slava Voynov slapshot with the palm of his hand last night. While that’s obviously terrible technique, the bottom line is that the man down units have been a huge reason why the Rangers are in the Stanley Cup Final as well remained competitive in Game 1. Last night they were very aggressive on the puck forcing the Kings into quick decisions and ultimately turnovers. And when the Kings did shoot, a wall of Rangers obstructed the path. The best part of the above gif is that if Moore didn’t get his hand on that shot, St. Louis is right there to provide assistance. John Tortorella would be proud. After Moore went to the bench, the camera caught him grimacing while shaking his left hand. After the game, Moore said his hand was fine. …Moore and the Rangers dodged a bullet there as that had broken hand written all over it. With the Kings being such a dominant face-off team, the loss of Moore would have been a huge blow. …you’d think at this level Moore would be smart enough to turn his glove the other way.
