Tic, Tac, Goal!!!!!!

Last night Derek Stepan scored his second game winner in as many playoff games on a georgous feed from Carl Hagelin to help the Rangers tie the series at 2-2…


Here's Ryan Callahan on Hagelin's improved play in the postseason (via Daily News)…

 “He’s willing to make more plays with the puck, he’s more comfortable. The story with him all along is his speed. He pressures defensemen and creates turnovers, and when he’s doing that, it’s hard to defend him.”

…sometimes when there's so much passing in tight the puck is usually poked away and you wish they would have just shot the puck, but not in this case.

…also amazing work by Callahan keeping the puck alive for the Blueshirts seconds before the goal.

…it really doesn't get nicer than that folks.

Actually it just might, as Derrick Brassard's two assists we're just as sick…

…with Nash and Zucarello yet to really get going in this series it will be imperative that Brassard keeps up his outstanding play.

…and how about Hagelin's snipe. As reader AnnoyingJoe said last night, nice to see his hands finally catching up with his feet.

Here's Brassard on his outstanding play in the postseason (via New York Post)…

“I knew how intense the games would be in the playoffs, but when you start on the road it’s a lot harder and I was a little bit nervous. I just started relaxing here and I feel the crowd. I play with emotion and I play with passion and it’s a lot easier when you play at home."
