Zuccy Strikes Again

Had Mats Zuccarello grown up on New York's lower East Side, Little Italy, he surely would have been called Zuccy. All the guys were called with names that ended in y's. It was Mikey, Johnny, Tony and Beansy. He might also be called Champy the way he comes through in the clutch.

Last night he waited til the shootout to perform his magic. He was the only one of the six shootout players to score a goal which enabled the Rangers to get out of town with two points. So they start the second half of the season the way they ended the first half of the season, with a win. They have 51 points and are only five points behind Eastern Conference leader, Pittsburgh. How about those apples!

With Lundqvist making 28 saves the Rangers played a strong defensive game with Ryan McDonagh replacing the injured Rozsival. Did anyone notice? Their first goal was a short handed one by Fedotenko which was the Rangers league leading ninth of the season. Anisimov's power play goal tied the game to send it to OT and eventually the shootout where Zuccy did his magic.

So the sun continues to shine brightly in Oslo, Norway as its favorite son, Mats Zuccarello continues to shine in New York, USA.
