No. 5 — Jan. 23 vs Boston Bruins


The Rangers were able to grab their first win of the young season against the Boston Bruins thanks in large part to Marian Gaborik's hat trick, which included the game-winner in overtime.

The Rangers jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, but the feisty Bruins tied it up in the second. The Rangers regained the lead on a Taylor Pyatt goal, but Boston was able to knot it up late in the third to set up Gaborik's heroics.

It had been nearly eight months since Rangers fans saw a win at Madison Square Garden, and they couldn't have asked for a more memorable finish. Despite being just the third game of the season, this win will be remembered by fans all year.
