-- The Rangers had a full two-minute 5-on-3 to work with and they cashed in as Mats Zuccarello
scored at 6:03 of the second period to make it 1-1. Fifty-nine seconds later, Brian Boyle
converted on a slam dunk goal from in front of the crease to give the Rangers a 2-1 lead with 12:58 to play in the second period.
Slovan's Martin Stajnoch
and David Skokan
went to the box at 4:56 with respective hooking and interference penalties.
Zuccarello scored during the 5-on-3 with a one-timer from the lower right circle off a feed from Brad Richards
. Zuccarello fed Richards between the circles and after faking a shot, Richards gave it back to him for the one timer.
Shortly after the power play expired, Dan Girardi
made a sweet pass from the right circle to Boyle, who was all alone in the low slot for the easy goal.
The Rangers, who were outshot, 12-6, in the first period, have a 10-3 advantage so far in the second period and not even nine minutes have gone by.
