The Rangers will try not to repeat last year’s failure.

The Rangers finished the NHL regular season with a home game against Ottawa; The Senators, who had not yet traveled to Boston for the last time, had no motivation for the tournament for a long time: the Canadian team abandoned the fight for a place in the league. playoffs in advance and simply finished the regular season. The “blue shirts”, on the other hand, had to solve one more problem: Peter Laviolette’s band was the main contender for the President’s Cup and, to avoid problems and hopes of failures of the competitors, they had to score two points.

The Rangers could receive this award for the fourth time in history; Before that, the New Yorkers took the title in the 1991/1992, 1993/1994 and 2014/2015 seasons. In 1994, the club also added the Stanley Cup to the President’s Cup; this was the third of eight such cases in NHL history. The current team in general had the best regular season in the history of the franchise – the “cops” set a new personal record for wins ahead of schedule – as of today there were 54 – and also, if they won, they could surpass the Best achievement in points: in the 2014/2015 season, the team led by Alain Vigneault scored 113 points, and before the first confrontation in the match against Ottawa, the current Rangers had 112.

The hosts of Madison Square Garden took the first step towards the goal at the beginning of the first half: Kreider and Roslovic went on the counterattack, having previously robbed their opponent at the exit of their zone, and the latter was able to score the third. Goal for the Rangers after a Columbus trade”

Despite the large number of chances, we had to wait for the next goal almost until the middle of the second twenty minutes: the Senators for the first time in the match won the right to play with a majority, but not only did they not tie the score. , but also conceded a second time. Kreider scored an assist double and Adam Fox hit the shot.

The Blueshirts played with a lot of confidence and there was no doubt they would win. And so it happened: in the last third, the hosts hit the opponent’s goal twice more and calmly brought the matter to the desired result. Artemiy Panarin was involved in both goals: first the Russian striker scored himself and a few minutes later he helped Alexi Lafreniere score once again this season. Khlebushko was just one accurate shot shy of 50 goals in the regular season, but he’s unlikely to be too upset about this: at 32, Panarin had the best season of his career, scoring 120 (49+71) points.

Today, Artemy repeated the best performance of Sergei Fedorov in terms of effective actions in a regular season and entered the top 4 among Russians in this indicator; Ahead of him are only the former record holder Alexander Mogilny and, twice, Nikita Kucherov, who will have one. more match to increase his result. Panarin was just three points shy of the Rangers record, which belongs to Jaromir Jagr.
