Miller goes five hole to pad lead   NHL.com

J.T. Miller continues to play like a man possessed, putting the New York Rangers up 2-0 on the New Jersey Devils.

The New York Rangers are up 2-0 on the New Jersey Devils thanks to THE J.T. Miller.

Jesper Fast has been a large part of that success too, as he was credited with a very significant helper on the play.

The game hasn’t exactly been the Devils/Rangers rivalry that Blueshirt fans are used to, but that’s OK because the Rangers execution has been systematic.

The Rangers puck possession in conjunction with effective puck movement has given the team plenty of scoring chances.

Derek Stepan was robbed by Cory Schneider, as was Chris Kreider.

The Rangers are also playing smart defense- Dan Girardi and Marc Staal have both broken up their share of plays to limit the Devils scoring chances.

So far, it seems like the Rangers haven’t missed Ryan McDonagh or Rick Nash.
