NY Rangers Take Game 3, Lead Series Over Penguins 2-1

21 Apr

The NY Rangers got it done, but not without an onslaught of pressure by the Penguins in the final period. The Rangers came out very strong through two periods, even holding the Penguins to a single shot in 15 minutes to start out the game. New York looked fast, won the battles in the corner, loose pucks, and stifled the Penguins each time they gained entry into The Ranger’s defensive zone.

It wasn’t until seven minutes or so in the final period that the Penguins got a breath of success, scoring their first goal of the game. Scored by Patric Hornqvist in the slot, The Penguins continued to press and put pressure on The Rangers and it looked like it was only a matter of time before the guys in black and white found the net again to tie the game at two a piece.

The expected goal for many never came and the Rangers ended up walking out of The Consol Energy Center feeling like they stole the game from the opposition.

It is no surprise that The Rangers work well on the road and a tight win like this one has been commonplace for the Blueshirts time and time again this season. With the best regular season record in the NHL, New York has all the experience and talent you would expect in a team with its sights set on a return to the Stanley Cup finals.
