The win marked the Rangers’ 53rd victory of the season, matching a franchise record set in 2014-15.

A standout moment in the game came when Chris Kreider tipped in Panarin’s shot in the third period, breaking a 1-1 tie and setting a new milestone with his 109th career power-play goal for the Rangers. Kreider’s consistent scoring form has been a key factor in the team’s recent success, having scored goals in five of his last six games.
