Rangers Continue To Defy Odds When Facing A Deficit

Published April 7, 2024 at 11:58 PM

The Rangers mounted their 27th comeback victory of the season, surpassing the Colorado Avalanche for the most in the NHL and tying the franchise record originally set in 2021-22. It also marked the Rangers 20th win when trailing first in a game, the most in a single season in franchise history.

Despite outplaying the Canadiens by a significant margin in the first period, the Rangers skated off the ice after 20 minutes trailing 1-0. But the Rangers would come through in the second period to tie the game, and then scoring four third-period goals to snap the 1-1 tie. They are now 11-2-1 when tied after 40 minutes this season.

This bodes well for the team come playoff time. No lead is ever safe against the Rangers!
