Hahahahahahahaha ... hahahaha. That essentially sums up my feelings of last night's game. The Rangers (with a major assist from the Wild) snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. A three-goal, third period deficit erased, down two players for half of the game, in the unlikeliest series of events. So let's get to it: here are your morning notes.
Rangers 5, Wild 4. All of the words you need to read to maybe somewhat comprehend what the hell happened last night. [Blueshirt Banter] [The Record] [Daily News] [ESPN NY] [Newsday] [Blueshirts United]
There are plenty of highlights to go over from Monday night, but maybe none important to mention than the ejections of both Chris Kreider and John Moore, incidents that will be looked at and potentially could end with supplemental discipline. [Blueshirt Banter] [Blueshirts Blog]
Anthony Duclair scored his first NHL goal last night, tying the score at four in the third period. Need I say more? [Blueshirt Banter]
Another "first" last night was Mats Zuccarello getting his first tally of the 2014-15 season, and completing the comeback against Minnesota. The goal, Zuccarello's 31st of his NHL career, also makes him the highest-scoring Norwegian-born player in league history. [Blueshirt Banter]
Ever been confused about the rules for junior players in the NHL, and the whole 10-game limit and whatnot? A good look here from Bob McKenzie on what it all means. [TSN]
As was the case again on Monday night, the Rangers defense has been letting them down. [The Record]
