Watch Rangers’ puck movement on game-winning goal

Feb 17, 2013, 9:56 PM EDT

Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby was on top of his game on Sunday – ultimately making 38 out of 40 saves – so the feeling was that the New York Rangers would need to pull out all the stops to beat him.

The 2-1 game-winner proved that. As you can see, Rick Nash kept the puck in the offensive zone and started a chain reaction of passes as the puck went from Brad Richards to Michael Del Zotto and finally made its way to Derek Stepan for this beauty on the power play:

    Carlson roamed away from Stepan. If he had stayed in his position, it shouldn’t have happened. Good recognition by the Rangers. You guys were by far the better team tonight

      beagle and hendricks are to blame too. looks like miscommunication because both drift to the left to start and left the whole right side open. either hendricks went the wrong way to start or beagle wasnt supposed to chase left. either way, hendricks left his man and he really had no chance of getting to richards.

    That’s a carbon copy of the Devils PP goal in (2nd goal of the game) Game 6 of the ECF. Sick play!!

    That was the Rangers best power play of the year. Started with the face off win & was just bang bang passing.

    That was nasty. As i watch the first pass and saw how the d shifted i said “yup this is a goal” and the rest is history.

    its about time, i couldn’t believe it , I almost fell off my chair, a power play that looked good , maybe tort’s needs to sit his power play units down, and make them watch the replay over and over again. then they may get it . FAST PUCK MOVEMENT WORKS.
