The New York Rangers scored the first goal of the game against the New Jersey Devils.

J.T. Miller, who is white hot right now, tapped in the first goal off of a beautiful pass from Derick Brassard.

The Rangers and Devils have been trading chances with 10 shots a piece after the first period. The Blueshirts could be up 3-0 if it were not for Devils goalie Cory Schneider, who has been fantastic.

The Rangers will want to keep their quick transition play through the neutral zone, which the Devils have yet to counter.

The Rangers have kept New Jersey to the outside for the most part, making Henrik Lundqvist‘s job fairly easy thus far.

I've been a die hard Rangers and Giants fan for as long as I can remember. I enjoy sharing opinions, and hearing from fans that love their teams just as much as I do. Henrik Lundqvist makes all of us look like mere mortals. E-mail me at: Chris.Wengert@elitesportsny.com
