J.T. Miller probably could not have scripted a better scenerio for the first goal of his National Hockey League career. But Thursday night, in his second NHL game---and in his Madison Square Garden debut---the Rangers top pick in the 2011 draft scored on his first shift, just 1:29 after the first drop of the puck, kickstarting the Rangers on their way to a 4-1 victory over the Islanders.
"It was really nice to get it out of the way there," Miller said of the first goal. "I was just trying to look past it because we had a lot of game left, so I just tried to keep plugging along."
For the record, J.T. Miller's first NHL goal was assisted by Chris Kreider and Marc Staal, and the opposing goaltender was Evgeni Nabokov.
