Monday night in Toronto the Rangers entered the third period trailing the Maple Leafs 3-1. But after Rick Nash scored early in the final period, the Rangers were back in the game. Then at the nine-minute mark of the third, Derek Stepan took off on a 2-on-1 rush shortly after the Rangers had killed off a Leafs power play, and rifled a left-wing shot past James Reimer to tie the game. Though the Rangers ended up losing 4-3, Stepan's goal was a pretty one--and a clutch one, as well.
