Video: Rangers get off to a good start

May 9, 2014, 8:09 PM EDT

A 2-0 first period went so well for the New York Rangers, you almost expected a Rick Nash goal.

That didn’t happen, but they did score their first power-play goal since April 20 (Game 2 of their first-round series against the Philadelphia Flyers) in Game 5 on Friday:

Derick Brassard made it 2-0 with about four and a half minutes in the opening frame:

The easiest way to illustrate the turnaround is that the Rangers fired more shots (17) on Marc-Andre Fleury in the first period tonight than they did in all of Game 4 (15).

    Welp. Looks like whatever hypnotism they used to fool Fleury into thinking it wasn’t the playoffs has failed. He’s clearly remembered his standard postseason form.

    Rangers show up and the Penns cant keep up! If the Penns get through this round, they have nothing for the B’s or the Habs. Goooooooooooo Rangers!
