Loop day and Rangers pull a win out of the bag

Well today was certainly one that could definitely be described as frustrating! Ever been in one of those meetings where you seem to go round and round in circles and struggle to break out of the loop? Yup, it was one of those! It was a relief to finally be able to call it a day and head home.

New York Rangers took on Arizona Coyotes in what started off as a slow game. First period wasn't really stellar but the Coyotes came out of it 0 - 1 ahead. Arizona had the better second period but the Rangers did at least manage to tie things up 1 - 1.

It was all change in the third though as the Rangers came alive and were 3 - 1 up after 06:24. The Coyotes did their best to close the gap but the Rangers kept them at bay with some great goaltending from Lunqvist. Rick Nash scored his first of the season with 17 seconds left to make it 4 - 1 even though he didn't actually put the puck in the net. This was down to him being dragged down and awarded a penalty shot when heading in on an empty net. Probably not how he expected to get back on the scoreboard but a goal is a goal LOL
