A Happy Rangers Thanksgiving! Derek recaps the big win on Periscope for a Winning Streak

This obviously isn’t a game recap. I’m busy enjoying some classic SNL and what was a very nice 3-2 win by the Rangers over the Hurricanes. They improve to 2-0-0 over Carolina thanks in large part to the game’s number one star Henrik Lundqvist, who made 40 saves. He could’ve gotten all three 🌟!

What this is a Periscope Podcast I happily did just before. For the first time all season, the Blueshirts have won three in a row. They have a Winning Streak! Wouldn’t the classic Major League character Lou be proud?

I sure am. They did it by showing remarkable resiliency to shock the Canadiens and rally from a 4-0 deficit to win 6-5 in the House Of Horrors on Saturday. Then persevered to come back and defeat the Wild 3-2 in overtime thanks to a power play goal from Chris Kreider and Tony DeAngelo’s overtime winner on Monday.

It wasn’t easy tonight on Turkey Eve. They led 3-0 on goals from Mika Zibanejad, sniper Brendan Smith and Adam Fox. However, the Canes showed why they’re considered one of the better teams by rallying for two quick goals in succession during a better second to make MSG nervous. But a laser focused Lundqvist wouldn’t have it as he repelled shot after shot en route to his 32nd victory vs Carolina. He has stopped 85 of 89 shots in a pair of New York victories. That is the kind of brilliance needed to win.

Here is my game review below on Periscope below. Stay tuned for a Rangers Report Card at the Turkey Break and a game recap.
