Carl Hagelin's contribution to the New York Rangers' playoff-opening win was etched all over his busted-up mouth.
The New York Rangers played the kind of defense that they're going to need come playoff time.
Henrik Lundqvist has done more than set a couple of franchise records for the New York Rangers this week. The Swedish goalie is keeping the Blueshirts in the thick of playoff contention.
It wasn't the Columbus homecoming that Rick Nash envisioned.
After failing to protect a lead two nights ago against one of the NHL's worst teams, the Minnesota Wild held on late against a fellow playoff contender.
The New York Rangers are playing playoff hockey right now, according to newly acquired Martin St. Louis, who set up Derek Stepan's winning goal in a 4-2 victory over Carolina on Friday night.
Henrik Lundqvist is playing so well lately, the New York Rangers' don't have to generate a whole lot of offense to win.
Alex Ovechkin netted the only goal for Washington, which committed four penalties in the second period to thwart hopes of a comeback. Despite recording only nine shots in the first, New York carried a 3-0 lead into the intermission.
Derek Stepan felt as though he shed a huge weight.
Replays showed Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and Marcus Johansson made mistakes on the play that led to Derek Stepan's goal at the 13:35 mark of the third period Monday night.
New York Rangers forward Derek Stepan became the fourth NHL player to score three goals in a debut.
"We tightened it up and moving forward we have to play that way because the points are so big," Stepan said. "We have played a good defensive game over the last few weeks and that is what is going to lead to our offense and help us win."
"I think we have to make a lot better decisions with the puck, especially in our own end," forward Derek Stepan said. "Offensively, we're a pretty skilled team, but to win hockey games, we have to make sure we do the dirty work in our own end and make good decisions. I felt like tonight we made it a little bit too easy for them to get in front and create chances."
