Kevin Klein finished a beautiful play to put the New York Rangers up 1-0 on the New Jersey Devils.

The Rangers have been doing pretty much everything except scoring, until Mr. Broken Thumb came through on this great play.

The Rangers have executed well on their transition game, especially in the neutral zone, and it has led to great offensive pressure.

Chris Kreider has looked like the 2014 version of his former self, as he is going to the net hard and creating chances.

Henrik Lundqvist has looked strong, but Cory Schneider has been a brick wall. The Rangers continue to struggle on the power play and are 0/3 on the the night.

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
