Chris Kreider scored a goal in the seventh round of an overtime shootout as the New York Rangers edged past the New Jersey Devils 4-3 on Sunday, Nov. 14 at Madison Square Garden.
The goal by the veteran was his first shootout goal in his career.
In a back and forth game, the Devils got the scoring started after Jesper Bratt netted a goal in the first period off assists by P.K. Subban and Dawson Mercer. The Rangers answered with a goal by defenseman Adam Fox to tie the game at one-point apiece.
Kakko put the Rangers up once more, scoring off an assist from Ryan Strome to put New York up 3-2 almost mid-way through the third period.
Both teams remained scoreless in overtime and went on to a shootout. A block by Alexandar Georgiev against Zacha gave the Rangers a chance to seal the win in the seventh round and in his 10th season with New York, snuck a goal by Devils goalie Jonathan Bernier to win the game.
The Rangers (9-3-3) look to keep their three-game winning streak alive against the Montreal Canadiens (4-11-2) on Tuesday, Nov. 16.
