Eight minutes into the first period it looked like it was going to be another bad loss for the New York Rangers. Right off the bat they found themselves down two goals to the Minnesota Wild when Ryan Carter got a breakaway goal to make it 1-0 and Matt Dumba doubled their lead on the power play just five minutes later.

However something flipped following their early dip and the Rangers turned it around. They dominated the last 10 minutes of the first period but Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk, who played a really good game, kept the lid closed on the Rangers through the first 20 minutes.

However, once the second period started, the Rangers would not be denied. They outshot the Wild 17-4 in the period and outscored them 2-0 to level the game. Captain Ryan McDonagh got the first tally and then J.T. Miller continued his hot streak by putting a puck top shelf to tie it up.

The Rangers would keep up the good work from there going on to take the lead in the third through goals by Derick Brassard and then Chris Kreider, who put the finishing touches on the win with an empty netter to make it 4-2. Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist started off shaky but finished with 16 saves on 18 shots, which shows just how dominant the Rangers were for the rest of the game.

It was a big win for the Rangers who have been struggling a little without Rick Nash, but they’ll try to start a winning streak when they take on the Flyers Saturday at 1:00 pm.
