The NFHL Game of the Day


Rangers Win!!!!

We all knew this day would come. We just didn't know the victim.  But mark down Game Day #25 and the Vancouver Canucks as the answer.  The question is, when will the New York Rangers win their first game and against whom? New York scored 5 goals in the 3rd period, countering the 4 goals from Vancouver in the same period, and eking out a 7-6 win. Mark Janssens had the game winning goal with just over 5 minutes left in the game, the goal completing his hat trick performance. Taylor Hall added 2 goals and an assist, with solo goals from Alan May and Rob Ray.  Six different players recorded a goal for Vancouver; Bernie Nicholls, Paul Coffey, Kevin Dineen, Steve Smith, Bob Bassen and Darryl Sutter. The disappointing Canucks fall below .500 on the season with the loss, now standing at 6-7-3 and 9th in the conference.  The Rangers "improve" to 1-14-2 and are now just a single point back of the inept Buffalo Sabres.
