After further review, the NHL made a scoring change to the goal Pavel Buchnevich scored during last night’s 4-2 Rangers win over the Hurricanes. What looked like the right wing’s third goal of the season on a great individual effort, will now be credited to teammate Filip Chytil.
So, the goal should now read Chytil with his third from Buchnevich at 1:15 of the third period. That goal made the score 3-1 and proved to be the game-winner. Here’s another look at it.
It’s still hard to tell. One angle makes it look like Chytil got a piece of it as Buchnevich released the backhand around Petr Mrazek. The other seems to indicate that it wasn’t touched at the conclusion. Who knows. It might be one of those goals that gets changed again.
For now, give Buchnevich another assist. He leads the Rangers with 10. That gives him twelve points (2-10-12). It’s still four points over the last two. Just all assists.
Chytil gets goal number three since his recall. That’s three in five games.
It doesn’t change anything. The outcome was still 4-2 in favor of the Rangers due in large part to Henrik Lundqvist (45 saves). He’ll be in net Sunday for sure when the Panthers visit MSG for a odd timed 1 PM matinee.
Why would the schedule makers do that? Granted. The Giants and Jets are both miserable. But they play the same time. Strange.
