Video of Day: Raanta and Darling show sportsmanship

In the Video of Day, respect was shown between goalies Antti Raanta and Scott Darling following a well played game between the backups for the Rangers and Blackhawks. It was Raanta- the former Blackhawk- who got the win stopping all 26 shots in a 1-0 overtime win against his ex-team. But Darling was splendid too finishing with 36 saves.

Former AHL teammates, they recognized each other during the Game’s Three Stars. Mutual respect shown between two friends.
