Rangers Set Physical Tone vs. Devils

Any concerns that Rangers fans might have had about the Blueshirts getting caught up in the majestry of the Stadium Series and forgetting about the two very important points were put to rest when Ryan Callahan did this to Bryce Salvador in the first minute of the game…

And it didn't end there as two minutes later Ryan McDonagh sent another message by sending Travis Zajac into the Devils bench with a thunderous hit…

That physical play became infectious and even directly led to some offense as Anton Stralman's hit at the Rangers blueline on Andy Greene turned into this…

Damn, let's take a look at that hit again courtesy of reader DP Snotty…

…so wait, the Rangers set a physical tone and they win? Funny how that works. Opened up the ice and gave some of the Rangers skill players who had been struggling to score recently the confidence to do their thing.

…after what I witnessed earlier this season, not in my wildest dreams did I expect this team to be able to play that kind of tough, intimidating game. Made it all the more enjoyable that it came against the Devils.

…can only hope this becomes the norm with the Rangers, not the exception.
