Video Of Day: Stepan scores on Bishop

Our first Video Of Day features second round hero Derek Stepan breaking through on Ben Bishop with 12.7 seconds left in the second period to give the Rangers a 1-0 lead. His goal came courtesy of some hard work from USA pal Chris Kreider, who was all over the ice during this shift creating enough of a distraction for Stepan to finish off the play.

What I like about this inside look is you get to watch the play up close at ice level. It’s fun to see them generate the goal off a hard forecheck. Credit Ryan McDonagh for jumping in and taking the first shot that led to Stepan’s goal. Plus after he scores, you get Stepan’s loud scream of “Owwwwwwwwwww! Hoooooo! Hooooo!” 🙂

Great stuff.
