Rangers Get Past Ducks With Power Play

Posted by Ace Staff on January 21st, 2009 in Sports

The New York Rangers head into the 2009 All Star Break in first place with a one point lead over the New Jersey Devils in the Atlantic Division.  The Rangers are 4-1-1 in their last six games getting them valuable points in their tight division.  The Rangers defeated the Anaheim Ducks last night by a score of 4-2 thanks to two power play goals.  Scott Gomez got his first power play goal on the year in the third period breaking the 2-2 tie.  Despite scoring the power play goals the Rangers were anything but sharp with the man advantage. Goalie Henrik Lunqvist noted:

“We really struggled on the power play, but two goals went in. It felt like they were not really sharp, but that’s what happens sometimes.” 

The Rangers got a first period goal from Markus Naslund and a short handed goal from Fredrik Sjostrom in the second period.  Blair Betts added an empty net goal to close out the scoring.

The NHL All-Star game takes place on 1/25 at the Bell Centre in Montreal. After the All-Star break the Rangers will host the Carolina Hurricanes on 1/27 at MSG. Rangers tickets are available for all remaining 2009 games. Info on Rangers playoff tickets will be available soon.
