New York Rangers earn first home win of season with 3-1 victory over New Jersey Devils

October 25, 2010

Last night the New York Rangers played a hard-fought 60 minutes of hockey in their 3-1 victory over the Devils for their first home win of the season. Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist was spectacular in allowing only a single goal, improving his career regular season record against New Jersey’s Martin Brodeur (widely considered one of the best goalies of all time) to 18-4-5 (wins-losses-overtime losses). As a team, the Rangers showed a physicality they’ve lacked in recent years. They go for their fourth win in a row Wednesday night against the Atlanta Thrashers at Madison Square Garden.
