Thanks to a late Dominic Moore game-winning score, the New York Rangers have taken Game 1 against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

OK, so it now way past that point of no return. The point of absurdity that involves these New York Rangers.

The absurdity that is these Rangers always having to play a one-goal game, providing fans with certain health problems along the way.

Yet again, in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Tampa Bay Rangers Lightning, the Rangers played a one-goal game. Thankfully for fans of the Blueshirts, they escaped with the 2-1 victory.

It was Dominic Moore who scored only 30 seconds after leaving the penalty box, and with just 2:25 to play in regulation, who broke the 1-1 tie.

Rookie Kevin Hayes swung the puck in the front of the net while guarded by ex-Ranger Ryan Callahan, and Moore beat another familiar face in Anton Stralman, as the puck went off of Moore’s leg and past Ranger-Killer Ben Bishop.
