New York Rangers’ Jimmy Vesey and Artemi Panarin led the team to a 5-3 victory over the New Jersey Devils, extending their point streak to 11 games. Panarin set a new Rangers record with a 15-game season-opening point streak, the longest of his career, and scored two goals in the game. Vesey also scored twice, including the game-winning goal in the third period.
Rangers’ Igor Shesterkin made 30 saves after returning from an injury, contributing to the team’s 10-0-1 record in their last 11 games. On the other side, Jack Hughes returned to the Devils’ lineup and scored a goal while setting up another.
Panarin’s performance has been remarkable this season, with 10 multi-point games and a 15-game point streak, the longest for the Rangers since Wayne Gretzky in 1996-97. The game was a back-and-forth battle, with both teams trading goals throughout the first and second periods.
