It was a ‘Gabby’ day for the New York Rangers (5-3-3) in their 2-1 shootout victory over the Anaheim Ducks (5-6-2) in hockey action on Thursday. The Blueshirts earned their second victory on Madison Square Garden ice, as they have now earned points in six of eight games.
Marian Gaborik assisted on the first goal of the game when Jeff Woywitka, recorded his first goal in a Blueshirts uniform. Keeper Henrik Lundqvist blanked the Ducks’ for the rest of the game making several key spots in the final 10 minutes of regulation.
The Blueshirts earned the shootout victory, when Gabby fooled Ducks keeper with a head fake, shimmy combo. The forward has been playing a strong game for the Blueshirts as of late, and if he continues to skate like this will continue to lead the Rangers to big victories.
Up next for New York is a home game against Original Six rival the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday. The game is scheduled to air on the MSG network, with the face-off slated for 7:00 p.m.
