New York Rangers defeat defending Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks, 3-2

November 2, 2010

Last night the New York Rangers passed an important litmus test for their season by defeating the defending Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks, 3-2, at Madison Square Garden. The Rangers’ Brandon Dubinsky (2 goals) and Henrik Lundqvist (33 saves) had stellar nights, and their defense did its part by tallying an impressive 33 blocked shots. Ryan Callahan extended his point streak to 7 games with his two assists. Their next game will be Thursday night against the Flyers in Philadelphia.

The penalty created a 2 man advantage for Chicago (because Chicago pulled their goalie for an extra attacker), but the Rangers survived their opponent’s push for a tying goal.
