“A lot of the offensive opportunities start from the back end and being sharper in that area as a group will help us score some goals.” - Marc Staal
Marc Staal and Dan Girardi both tallied goals against the New Jersey Devils in the effort to extend New York’s win streak to four games. Despite Staal’s goal — career point No. 100 — the Rangers fell short against their Metropolitan Division rival.
The Rangers defenders responded strong against the Canadiens to earn them a win thanks to the continued application of strong defensive play. The Rangers' sharper defense bolstered their offense, allowing them to outshoot the Canadiens 34-22 and claim the win Saturday night.
