New York Rangers Tuesday’s game started according to plan, but failing defensively to control the Canucks in the 3rd led to a demoralizing 2 -3 loss in overtime.
After a scoreless 1st period, New York woke up and netted two unanswered goals in the second. Mika Zibanejad opened the scoring after less than three minutes into the second period, followed by Artemi Panarin, who capitalized on a Fox-Strome assists. At the end on the second period, fans at Rogers Arena were feeling pretty good about the team and looking forward to closing this game with a W on the record. Things didn’t pan out quite their way, however. J.T. Miller was quick to put the Canucks on the board after barely a minute into the 3rd and a few minutes later Podkolzin tied the game for Vancouver.
Neither the Rangers nor the Canucks managed to close the game in regular time, so OT was in the cards. Unfortunately for New York fans, Miller scored his second for the night barely over two minutes into overtime, handing the loss to the Rangers.
Next, the Rangers will travel to face the Oilers on Friday, Nov. 5th.
