New York Rangers Recaps
Mika Zibanejad notched a hat trick as the Rangers followed up their New Year’s Eve shootout victory in Tampa with a shutout win Sunday afternoon at Madison Square Garden.
The Rangers played another solid game overall, and were able to beat their cross-river rivals on Chris Kreider’s shootout goal after squandering a late third-period lead.
The Rangers were badly outplayed for most of the night, but came away with a victory thanks to more brilliance from Igor Shesterkin.
All the pieces finally fell into place as the Blueshirts took down the Blue Jackets.
