The recently-crowned Super Bowl champions were on hand at Madison Square Garden Thursday night to watch another local team that some could call Big Blue, the New York Rangers:
Much like the New York Giants, the Rangers had a sense of the moment by scoring a dramatic game-winning goal, as Atrem Anisimov played Eli Manning while Brad Richards finished like Mario Manningham for the 4-3 overtime game-winner.
That was far from the only highlight-reel moment, however, as Steven Stamkos scored a beauty to start things off and Derek Stepan produced a wonderful spin-o-rama. With that in mind, enjoy the full highlights:
Despite tough fight, Stars hand Wild their sixth straight loss
This dominant win is a heck of a way for the Kings to begin an imposing seven-game road trip, which continues against the New York Islanders on Thursday. The Bruins probably want to burn the tape on this one themselves, as they’re about to head on a six-game road trip.
Per @EliasSports: @LAKings had 9 different skaters score in a game for 5th time in franchise history. Last: Jan. 21, 1987 vs. PIT (10-5 W).
Some hockey players resist the urge to wear a visor, at least if they’re given that choice.
Perhaps a few will say “Hey, Nathan Beaulieu will just punch it off anyway.”
Maybe not, but Beaulieu provided a rather unique moment in his fight with Cedric Paquette during the Montreal Canadiens – Tampa Bay Lightning game. You can watch that bout in the video above, and see a cut on the Lightning pest’s face from that blow.
