New York Rangers goaltender Mike Richter posted his 266th win during a 4-3(OT) victory against the Philadelphia Flyers tonight at The Garden. The victory tied him with Eddie Giacomin for first place on the club's all-time wins list.
Richter, 34, turned aside 31 of 34 shots in the winning effort to lead the Rangers to their second consecutive win and improve the club's record to 18-24-2-1 on the season. The 13-year Blueshirt veteran will look to take sole possession of first place when the Rangers battle the Toronto Maple Leafs Thursday night at Madison Square Garden. Richter is currently 14-17-1-0.
