Rangers upset and now lead the group 2-0

The majority of critics and fans didn’t give the New York Rangers a run for their money in the conference finals as the Tampa Bay Lightning team attempt to reach the Stanley Cup Finals for the third year in a row. However, the first game of the series went to the blue shirts, and they had a chance to double their lead last night with Game 2 at home.

John Cooper’s men were the first to score a quick goal in the match. It was Nikita Kucherov who beat Igor Shesterkin to score his fifth goal in qualifying.

Let’s say the Rangers goalkeeper definitely wanted to review this shot:

Despite everything, the New York squad did not disappoint with this goal, which was scored after just 2 minutes and 41 seconds in play.

We all know how important team depth is in the playoffs and it has to show up at one point or another. That’s what Candre Miller did, moments after the Lightning Network.

The great defender shows his patience in the Lightning area before firing a shot that makes its way past Vasilevskiy. So, with six minutes of play in the match, a one-on-one tie was established:

That’s when we felt Rangers regain the confidence they had when they were at home. The grandstand is noisy and it’s hard to beat Madison Square Garden in the playoffs. At least, that’s what we understand about Rangers’ perfect record since the beginning of the Spring Dance…

If there’s one trio that gets people talking in New York right now, it’s Alexis Lafrenière’s group. Paired with Capo Kaku and Philip Chettle and nicknamed the “Children’s Line,” the three players put in an excellent snowboard performance.

Who else to break the tie in the game?

Kakko takes advantage of a perfect pass from Adam Fox to stitch the needle and give his team the lead:

No goals are scored per second. So we moved on to the third half, while the score is still 2-1 in favor of Rangers.

We often talk about how important it is for a team’s top defender to reach the playoffs and contribute to the club’s success. That, ladies and gentlemen, totally understood Mika Zibanijad.

A minute later in third, the Swede said to himself that he would take matters into his own hands, and the result was great.

Zipanjad rushed into the opponent’s area and fired a powerful and accurate shot to double the Rangers lead about 18 minutes before the end of the match. Fabulous!

And we felt that this goal hurt Lightning who, in the end, will never be able to get back in the game. Nick Paul scored two minutes before the end of the match, but in hindsight it was a few.

So the Rangers, to everyone’s surprise, took the lead twice to zero in the series. Honestly, I don’t think many people expected this.

The series is now moving to Tampa. Can lightning find the hair of the beast in front of his supporters? Because yes, something unique is happening right now.

Since 2019, Lightning has lost two consecutive games. This ends a staggering 17-game streak in which the team has not lost in two consecutive meetings. You should do it, the same!


– When I told you it was noisy in New York…
