Jimmy Vesey made quick work of the Boston Bruins at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday. 

The New York Rangers forward scored two goals in a 29-second span in the first period to give the Rangers a 4-2 victory, their fifth straight.

Vesey became the second player this season to score two goals in a span of less than 30 seconds, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Colorado Avalanche forward Alexander Kerfoot did it in 21 seconds against the New York Islanders on Nov. 5. 

It was the fifth time since 2001-02 that a Rangers player scored two goals in 30 seconds or less and first since Jaromir Jagr did it in 26 seconds on Nov. 14, 2006, according to Elias. Jagr scored two goals in 15 seconds on Nov. 12, 2005. Eric Lindros did it twice; in 19 seconds on March 2, 2002 and in 26 seconds on Oct. 17. 2002.
