The New York Rangers (43-18-7) defeated the New York Islanders (28-31-10) by the score of 4-3 in overtime, tonight. For a boxscore and recap go to Yahoo! Sports.

...with the season on the brink of spiraling out of control, the Rangers find away to get two huge points in what could be the defining win of the season.

...i expected Zuccarello to have a positive effect on the power play, but THREE power play goals? Wow.

...nice to see Tortorella finally take my advice and put Boyle in front of the net on the power play.

...whoever's been buying Richards the hookers lately deserves the first star as well.

...i guess Gaborik IS clutch.

...Hagelin did everything tonight but score. Might have been the best player on the ice.

...Lundqvist hasn't been at his best lately, but it doesn't get better than the save on Nielsen in overtime.

...hate to compliment an Islander, but I never thought Tavares would be this good, this soon. Can't wait till the Islanders ultimately trade him away.

...i know it was against the lowly Islanders, but when you can win with your most complete player and best offensive defenseman in the press box it can only give the team confidence going forward.

...not sure I agree with fans mocking their own team with a "Shoot the Puck" chant in overtime of the biggest game of the year.

...i thought Dubinsky was supposed to return to the line-up tonight?

...off tomorrow then Hurricanes blow into town on Tuesday night.
