- This game had the makings of turning into another Islanders game where the Rangers were good for the most part and then gave up a third period lead. In the end the Rangers were able to stay afloat and Mats Zuccarello scored in the shootout to get them a second point.
- For the second straight game Henrik Lundqvist was back to being at the top of his game. He was locked in again and looked very confident between the pipes.
- Chris Kreider has been more active and noticeable the past two games and got rewarded by going to the net tonight. That is what the Rangers need more of from him.
