And speaking of Vigneault, if we were the Rangers GM and interviewing him for the job, one of our key questions for him would’ve been about how he plans to beat the Penguins. He’s been around the block, so we’re pretty sure he has a couple plans up his sleeve. 4. And how about this stat.

The team received contributions from almost everyone - five different goal-scorers and 11 players with...

The Anaheim Ducks and New York Rangers game got a bit chippy towards the end of the second period thanks to Ryan McDonagh checking Corey Perry into the Rangers’ bench area not once, but twice in a row.
