No. 5: Girardi Scores on the Power Play in Pitt.


It had been 17 games since Dan Girardi last scored a goal--back on December 31st down in Florida--but the Rangers defenseman delivered Friday night in Pittsburgh again, hammering a power play goal past Marc-Andre Fleury just 34 seconds into the second period to give the Rangers, at the time, a 2-1 lead. Just four seconds after James Neal was penalized for slashing, Derick Brassard won an offensive zone faceoff back to Girardi and he let fly with a blast that ended up in the back of the net, his fourth goal of the season.
