Devils Hang On and Even Series

New Jersey Devils @ New York Rangers

(Series tied 2-2)

Game Recap:

After getting back into the series on Saturday night, tonight the New Jersey Devils look to get things even between them and the New York Rangers at MSG. Things got a little interesting early on during a mad scramble in front of Devils goalie Akira Schmidt’s crease. Fortunately for New Jersey was able to clear the puck thanks to Jonas Siegenthaler who was able to spring Jack Hughes on a breakaway where he beat goalie Igor Shesterkin for his third goal of the playoffs. After all the early commotion, things calmed down even after both teams had power play chances with the Devils taking a 1-0 lead into the first intermission.

Period two saw a tight and defensive minded type of period with the New Jersey Devils stifling the Rangers in particular on the power play. The Rangers couldn’t get much going with the Devils being physical as well as limiting and blocking shots. Akira Schmid was solid in net building off the good way he began in the first period. After two periods, the Devils would maintain their 1-0 lead over the Rangers with hopes of expanding on it.

Unfortunately for the Devils, the Rangers got the score evened up thanks to a Vincent Trocheck goal which was his first of the playoffs. Trocheck scored off of a Chris Kreider rebound shot and got the goal to help his team breakthrough for the first time in this game. The scored would be tied at one for about six minutes or so until Jonas Siegenthaler got a cross ice pass and fired a beauty that would beat Igor Shesterkin to regain New Jersey’s lead. Down to the very end it would remain close until Ondrej Palat would score an empty net goal to seal the victory and make it 3-1 as well as tie the series up at two a piece. Akira Schmid made 23 saves for the Devils on the way to victory. Next up is game five back in the Garden State at the Prudential Center in Newark on Thursday night.
