No. 5: Brass' Second of Game 5


Derick Brassard scored the Rangers' second goal of the first period in Game 5 to give the Blueshirts a 2-0 lead. With Pittsburgh on the board early in the second period, a little bit of insurance was needed, and No. 16 provieded it. Mats Zuccarello broke down into Pittsburgh's zone and fed Anton Stralman, who's slap shot from the faceoff circle was stopped, but Brassard was there to scoop it up. While his first shot didn't find twine, the second did, and the Rangers found themselves back up by two goals in the second period. They'd go on to win Game 5, 5-1, In Pittsburgh to force Game 6 back at Madison Square Garden.
