Lindgren scores winner for New York

Ryan Lindgren scored with 0.7 seconds left on the clock to edge the Buffalo Sabres in their 5-4 win. The New York Rangers were thrilled with the shot as fans at Madison Square Garden rose up from their seats to celebrate the big win on an intense night.

Chris Kreider stole the puck in a battle behind the net to Adam Fox. He passed the ball to Mika Zibanejad in the left circle as the latter sent the puck to Lindgren. Ryan then tapped the puck into an open net just past the stick of Aaron Dell.

Ryan had a lot of praise for that play. He even said that it was a big win that they needed at this point. That play was one of the wonders that the Rangers have seen for most of their games so far and they are doing a great job to stay on the winning track.

‘Me and “Foxy” are standing up kind of back towards the point and look up and see the clock and kind of realize with five seconds left there's probably not going to be enough time for them to bring it all the way down, so you just keep sneaking in’, Lindgren said. ‘The puck got to Foxy, who kicked it out to Mika’.

Artemi Panarin made three dimes for the Rangers. Offence was not flowing well for the team but they still pulled off a huge win. The Rangers have won five of their last six games and they were on point despite a poor start.

The Sabres are one of the worst teams in the league in the 2021-22 season, so a tight game against them means a poor game from the opposing team. New York coach Gerard Gallant was pleased that they still managed to pull off a win.

‘We were sloppy in the second period, didn't get off to a great start in the first period either, but it's one of those games’, the New York head coach said. ‘But we found a way to get two points at the end’.

This win by the Rangers shows how much depth they have in their games so far, and that says a lot about their big games in the coming stretch.
