Goal Line Report

Rangers Continue to Roll

It seemed to be a solid night for the New York Rangers last night as the team beat the Tampa Bay Lightning by a score of 4-2 for their fifth straight win.

Unfortunately, I was not able to catch any of the game last night as I was out with my wife and her friends. With that said, it was nice to come home and see the Blueshirts pick up yet another win and also see key guys contributing.

It was nice to see guys like Derek Stepan (1 goal and 1 assist), Brad Richards (1 goal and 1 assist), Artem Anisimov (1 goal and 1 assist) and Ryan McDonagh (2 assists) all have a multiple pint night in Tampa. It was also great to see Lundqvist have another solid performance in stopping 24 of 26 shots for his 11th win of the season.

I wish I could say more about the game but like I said earlier, I did not watch it so I do not want to make assumptions based on the score sheet. With that said, a win is a win and the Blueshirts continue to surprise people in the National Hockey League.

The Blueshirts will be back in action tomorrow night to take on the Toronto Maple Leafs. Back in late October, the Leafs spoiled the Rangers’ home opener with a 4-2 victory. However, that was much a different Blueshirts team as they are playing like a completely different hockey club right now.

It won’t be easy but should the Rangers come away with another two points, other teams in the NHL will have to be aware of what this team is doing and more importantly, what they are capable of.
