Rangers 4, Thrashers 2.
After giving up an early lead, Michal Rozsival tied the score, and the 1st period ended 1-1. Another Thrasher goal left the Blueshirts down again, but Brendan Shanahan finished off a 2 on 1 rush with a wrister from the right circle that trickled in past Thrasher goalie Johan Hedberg.
Early in the 3rd, Matt Cullen drilled a slapshot from just inside the blue line that hit the crossbar and then the ice behind Hedberg, but did the puck actually go in the net?? The officials decided to review...
As the wait dragged on, Ranger fans chanted “Goal, goal, goal,” and when the ref hung up the phone and pointed to center ice, they blew the lid off the dump:
Some feistiness from the Blueshirts' little ball of hate (Sean Avery):
First Rangers playoff series win in 10 years, first sweep since 1994.
The boys begin round 2 next Wednesday, opponent to be determined...
LET'S My Family Crest GO My Family Crest RANGERS!
