A long drought is over, as the New York Rangers score a power play goal and received the goal from a defenseman, the first in 10 games.

By Jay Travers

Ryan McDonagh and the New York Rangers open up the scoring for the Blueshirts tonight with a good old Power Play goal.

With forward Chris Kreider screening Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson, McDonagh had a clean line straight to the back of the net. This is a long time coming as the Rangers’ power play numbers have not been good of late.

This is also the first goal from McDonagh in the last 10 games, and is also the first goal from a defenseman in the last 10 games.

Rangers fans hope that the man-advantage numbers will be beneficial to the team going forward.

Heading into tonight the Blueshirts have had a few struggling players, but Chris Kreider has an assist on that goal and McDonagh has scored a nice one.

Things are looking alright for the team early on.

I love watching sports, specifically teams in New York. I'll root for all New York teams, but the New York Rangers and hockey are my number one. I am an avid hockey fan and enjoy expressing my opinion on the Blueshirts, when they are playing good and bad.
