Kevin Klein’s OT Winner Rocks the Devils

It was another winner at the Prudential Center for the New York Rangers as it took overtime and a Kevin Klein snipe on short side of Corey Schneider at 2:42 into the extra period. It was a fantastic drop pass by Chris Kreider as he skated with the puck from center ice and into the Devils zone, but waited for Klein to get close and made the move.

But this game was a tale of two teams that used the power play to convert most of their chances to take a lead until that magic moment came from the red hot Rick Nash to tie the game in the 3rd period. At 14:32 of the 3rd Period Kevin Hayes took a hard rip after the puck was dug out of the near corner, which was saved by Schneider but the puck was loose in front of his pads. Nash dug it out and a flipped a quick backhander to tie the score at three a piece for his 8th of the season.

The start of the 2014-15 season for Nash has been amazing as he is sharing the top of the points leaders with John Taveras of the New York Islanders and Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Every time Nash has the puck on his stick or when he is in perfect position to accept a pass, he can smack it home with ease and there are those who were waiting to see if he can have a season with the Rangers, like he did with the Columbus Blue Jackets in years past.

But the Devils had some good moments as well when Jaromir Jagr finally converted his first goal against Henrik Lundqvist to tie the score in the 1st period on the power play off a rebound and Adam Henrique gave the Devils a lead in the second period with his shot being screened by Jagr and Ryan McDonagh. It looked like the Devils were going to win the game with an early goal in the 3rd period by Jon Merrill, but Chris Mueller ripped a fantastic pass from Derick Brassard to cut the lead to 3-2 at 9:06 of the 3rd Period.

While Schneider had a good game for the Devils, so did Lundqvist, but tonight the Rangers needed an extra period to earn that second point and defeated the Devils at the Prudential Center as they ride a three-game winning streak to Montreal for an Eastern Conference revenge game at the Bell Centre after the Rangers went on a three game losing streak and coughing up six goals at the Garden against the Maple Leafs and Islanders.

Explosive first half gives Red Bulls win over Toronto

With the playoffs looming and the New York Red Bulls needing all the points they can get, Thierry Henry and company hosted a Toronto FC side that continues to do the same thing they have done since their existence in MLS. 

The opening goal came in the 26th minute with Bradley Wright-Phillips getting his 25th of the season when Henry reclaimed the ball on an attempted clear and found Kosuke Kimura along the near side, a fantastic cross and Wright-Phillips turns the inside of his right boot and deflects the ball inside the net.

But more would come from unexpected players and one of those was Ruben Bover as he had a fantastic preseason but somehow couldn’t get the chance to crack the starting eleven. He finally got a chance to start as MLS gave a quick one game suspension to Peguy Luyindula who earned a yellow card for a foul in the Houston game last week.

Once again it would be Henry who saved the ball from a possible Toronto counter attack and he gets to the end line to create that opportunity. A nice cross that forced Joe Bendik to make a one handed save, but the rebound pin-balled to Bover who slot it home and finally celebrated his first goal in Major League Soccer.

Then the scoring ended with Dax McCarty putting in a fantastic deflection inside the near post in the 44th minute when Sam brings the ball towards the area and finds a streaking Wright-Phillips who you thought would bury the ball for No. 26 makes it into a pass for McCarty who scores.

Even though Toronto FC pulled one back, it was all over as the Red Bulls would earn the three points and now have two games left to cement their playoff position either in the Wild Card game or get to a higher position into the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals.

But as you discuss how great the Red Bulls played in this match, the real question is why does Toronto FC who always has great starts can’t finish the season in a great position?

Either it comes from the players on the roster or somehow there is internal turmoil from the front office and the coaching staff.

No one seems to know the real reasons for it, but that’s not the problem of the Red Bulls. Their next problem is the Columbus Crew next weekend as they need to make sure they have some distance from the yellow and black and try to get three points again at home.

Nash's two goals lift Rangers to a win in season opener

When the league scheduled the start of the new season for the defending Eastern Conference Champion New York Rangers the first tough opponents for the team was flying to St. Louis, Missouri and taking on the Blues, but there were some tough questions to be answered on the Rangers side of things and that player was Rick Nash.

But he answered some questions of his own by having a fantastic game scoring two goals and assisting one to give the Rangers a big 3-2 win for the first time in over eight seasons. Especially scoring the game winner with 1:50 left in the third period as the Blues tried to clear their zone and the puck deflects off the glass and stayed in, but quick thinking by Martin St. Louis as he recovered the puck and quickly found a wide open Nash who wristed it past Brian Elliott.

His first of the season came in the first period as Chris Kreider stole the puck from Kevin Shattenkirk at the far boards and took a right handed swing to an open area in the middle of the of the zone and Nash snapped a wrister for the first goal of the game. While he got help from Kreider on the opening goal he returned the favor after the Blues tied it up at the start of the third.

Chris Kreider gave the Rangers the lead back at 6:30 of the third period after a solid defensive play by Marc Staal allowed the Rangers to move the puck up the ice and quickly Nash made a great tape to tape pass to Kreider who was already streaking on a breakaway and beats Elliott to his blocker side.

Henrik Lundqvist had several great saves in this game as he made 23 saves out of 25 shots and was strong for forty plus minutes before the Blues converted early in the 3rd period, but to be honest Lundqvist is in mid-season form as the start of the season began in St. Louis. As of right now the Rangers start the season 1-0 and are tied on points with the Devils and Penguins in the Metropolitan division, but once again it’s the start of the 2014-15 season and the Rangers are making a trip to Columbus, Ohio and face the Blue Jackets who will open their home schedule on Saturday.
