No. 4: Step Goes Top Shelf


Derek Stepan has been terrific since the Olympics, posting 19 points in 20 games--the most recent coming on Thursday night in Colorado. With the Rangers and Avalanche tied 1-1 in the second period Stepan roofed a wicked shot over Semyon Varlamov's glove at 15:30 for his 16th goal of the season. The goal looked as if it would stand up to be the game-winner until the Avs forced overtime on a goal with less than a minute to play in the third period, of what turned out to be a bitter 3-2 shootout loss on the road for the Rangers.
