"It was a great move by a great player." — Alain Vigneault on Brad Richards' shootout goal against the Panthers.
Much has been written about Brad Richards' offensive renaissance this season, and it's all been well deserved. In a game that the Rangers had to have to close out the year on a high note, Richards came through in the shootout. He beat Tim Thomas to score the lone goal in the shootout and allowed Henrik Lundqvist to secure the win with a stop. He entered the game in a bit of a recent slump but this score seems to have helped get him going again as he scored a goal in Toronto two games later.
