Video: Zuccarello’s sweet backhanded pass puts Rangers ahead

Apr 30, 2014, 8:49 PM EDT

Mats Zuccarello has been one of the New York Rangers’ best forwards this season and he’s already come up big in Game 7 against the Philadelphia Flyers.

After a scoreless first period, Zuccarello was pressured with the puck along the boards when he pulled off a great spin and backhanded pass towards the Flyers’ net. Daniel Carcillo was in position to knock the puck past Flyers goaltender Steve Mason.

You can watch that play below:

Mason has been great in this game, but the Rangers were able to make it 2-0 later in the period on a similar play.

The Rangers are 2-0 in this series when leading after two periods. At the same time, we’ve seen plenty of teams blow two-goal leads in the postseason and with only 20 minutes left to save their season, the Flyers aren’t likely to go down quietly.

    We’re going to go down with the vocal authority of a mouse if we continue to get out-shot 18-5! Mason is the only Flyer that showed up so far. This showing is pathetic! We need a drastic turnaround in the 3rd just to have a chance!
