Rangers Rally from down 3-1 in Series to beat Pens

Awesome game 7 win by the Rangers. The younger, faster team with the better goalie won. Who was worried? Onward to the next round.

Here is a roundup of some game 7 celebratory recaps:

Larry Brooks / NY Post:
Rangers’ refusal to surrender mirrors 2015 team’s winning DNA --
Igor Shesterkin returned, too. He returned to the form that earned the 26-year-old finalist designations for both the Hart and Vezina trophies, putting those nightmares from Games 3 and 4 to bed for good. Shesterkin returned and so did the Rangers return to the template they rode to a 110-point season, that, by the way, has been fully validated.
Peter Botte / NY Post:
Rangers’ Mika Zibanejad finally gets his big Garden moment --
The 29-year-old Zibanejad has been with the Rangers since a trade from Ottawa in 2016, and he signed a eight-year contract extension worth $68 million in 2021. The Swedish center said the atmosphere at the Garden was unlike any he’s heard, especially the emotional eruption after he assisted on Panarin’s OT winner.

Hey stupid, you should have put your helmet back on --
By saying that the rule was the difference, Crosby just enhances his reputation as a whiner. That’s not what you expect from a future Hall of Famer and a team captain...
Blueshirt Banter:
OT Thriller Pushes Blueshirts on to the Second Round -- 
Artemi Panarin, who had been so quiet this series that some speculated an injury, made the shot heard ‘round the Garden. And just like that, the memory of the game one is gone.
