Pittsburgh wins second over Rangers

And put the squeeze on the Rangers. The guests made a comeback from 1:4, but still lost the second match in the series.

The series between the Rangers and the Penguins moved to Pittsburgh with a tie. In the first meeting, Evgeni Malkin brought victory to his team in the third overtime, in the second match, the Russian leader of the Blueshirts, Artemy Panarin, significantly contributed to the success of the Rangers.

Spectators in New York saw 7 goals in both games, but it turned out that the teams were capable of more. Today, after the first period, the score was 4:1 in favor of Pittsburgh, and this segment can be safely called a nightmare for the main favorite of the Vezina Trophy, Igor Shesterkin. The Russian did not have a game at all, he conceded 4 goals from 15 shots and was replaced by Alexander Georgiev during the break.

The replacement of the first goalkeeper managed to shake up the Rangers. So much so that by the 36th minute the Blueshirts equalized the score! First, Vatrano scored, then Panarin completed the pile of guests on the gates of Pittsburgh’s third goalkeeper, Louis Domingue, with a chic wrist.

It is curious that for Panarin this goal became the hundredth point this season, if we count the regular season and the playoffs together. Artemy is the first Rangers player in 15 years (after Jaromir Jagr in the 2006/2007 season) to achieve such a result.

Soon, a funny shorthanded goal was scored by Andrew Kopp, the score became 4: 4, the Rangers managed to make a comeback away.

But “Pittsburgh” still did not miss his in this match. In the 52nd minute, the confusion of the Rangers defense and Georgiev’s not very successful game led to the fact that Danton Heinen became the hero of the match.

Again, the Blueshirts failed to win back, and at the end of the game, Pittsburgh brought the matter to a confident victory by score, hitting an empty net twice. At the same time, both Gyuntsel and Carter were helped to excel by Sidney Crosby, and this pass of the captain of the “penguins” was especially magnificent.

By the way, Crosby, having scored 2 points, overtook the legendary Paul Coffey in the list of the top scorers of the Stanley Cup of all time and came out sixth in this ranking with 197 points. Sidney’s next target is Jaromir Jagr with 201 career playoff points.

Of the Russians in this nomination, the best are Evgeni Malkin and Sergey Fedorov, who account for 176 points. The Pittsburgh center forward today could have set a new national record in the NHL, but did not participate in any of the seven Shesterkin / Georgiev scores, being marked in the protocol only by removal.
