Game Recap: Rangers Vs. Ducks 1/20/2009

Last night, the New York Rangers and the Anaheim Ducks played. This was a pretty even game. The Ducks came out into the first playing a very physical game. The first goal of the game was scored by Markus Naslund (91) at 12:46 and was on a power play. The Ducks came back to tie it thanks to Bobby Ryan (54) who scored at 13:45 also on a power play. The first period ended in a tie. Frederick Sjostrom (20) scored short-handed in the 2nd period at 3:22. The Ducks came back to tie it once again thanks to Correy Perry (10) who scored at 18:23. This was the last goal of the second period. The two teams were evenly matched for the second period but the Rangers played a consistent game and took the hits from the Ducks, more aggresive, players. In the third, a power play goal was scored by Scott Gomez (19) of the NYR at 12:39 and for the third and final time, the Rangers led the game. The Ducks pulled their goalie at the final moments of the game allowing for 6 skaters on the ice while the Rangers were short handed making a 6 on 4 power play. Blair Betts (15) scored short-handed on the empty net at 19:26. The Rangers had 30 shots on goal and Lundqvist had 32 saves. The Rangers were 2 for 9 on the power play and killed 6.
