Rangers Dominate Lightning in Game 4

Last night, Ranger fans everywhere rejoiced, as their team battled back against the relentless offense of the Tampa Bay Lightning, to clinch a 5-1 victory, and draw the Eastern Conference series back to 2 games a piece for each team.

Game 4 saw Ranger’s players, Rick Nash, and Martin St. Louis, shed their distasteful ‘no scoring’ shells, and go on to score a majority of the team’s points, with Nash responsible for two goals and an assist, and St. Louis burying a reassuring goal into the back of the net, with only 15 minutes remaining in the 3rd period.

Tampa Bay seemed reluctant to come back after trailing, scoring only one goal, made by team Captain, Steven Stamkos. This drew the teams even for a short while before Rangers, Chris Kreider, and Keith Yandle, scored within 2 minutes of Stamkos’s goal, putting New York up early 3-1.

Tampa Bay had deceivingly outshot New York 39-24 respectively, but it was Ranger’s goalie, Henrik Lundqvist, who redefined the word superiority, by stonewalling the Lightning offense, and blocking an impeccable 18 of 19 shots in the 2nd period, as well as 13 more in the 3rd.

I think there was a lot of talk about him and his play,” Rangers head coach, Alain Vigneault, stated in a post-game press conference, “There wasn’t any doubt from within our dressing room, and we knew he was going to come out and do what he always does, give us a chance to win.

This was a huge redemption game for Lundqvist, after previously allowing 12 goals in the teams 2 prior losses to Tampa Bay. In an interview asking about his mental preparedness coming into game 4, Lundqvist said, “The last 48 hours or so, it’s been pretty tough trying not to overanalyze or complicate things soul searching.”

On the contrary, Lightning goalie, Ben Bishop, only managed to save 19 of 24 shots, seceding 5 goals to the Rangers, after an impressive track record of giving up no more than 3 goals during Tampa Bay’s first 14 playoff games. “From Bish on out, myself included, we have to be better next game,” Stamkos concluded in an interview.

Meanwhile, Lightning’s head coach, Jon Cooper, came to the aid of his team and their performance, by declaring in a post-game interview, “It’s a funny game. People are going to wake up in the morning and look at the box score and say: ‘oh wow, Tampa got waxed.’ But if you’re in the building, you probably don’t see it that way.”

Game 5 will take place on the Rangers home turf at Madison Square Garden tomorrow, Sunday, where the puck drops at 8 P.M. (ET).
