New York Rangers crush Edmonton Oilers, 8-2

November 16, 2010

On Sunday afternoon the New York Rangers reminded the Edmonton Oilers why they’re tied for the worst record in the league with an 8-2 drubbing at Madison Square Garden. The game had it all: drama, with the return of former Rangers head coach Tom Renney on the bench for the Oilers; excitement, with plenty of fights, including an all-out brawl in the 3rd period; and of course scoring, with 8 goals, including a hat trick (3 goals) by Marian Gaborik. The Rangers continued their now three game winning streak last night with a thrilling 3-2 overtime victory over the Penguins in Pittsburgh. They hope to continue their success against the Boston Bruins tomorrow night at Madison Square Garden. Photos by Avi Gerver, ©Madison Square Garden, L.P.
