In overtime there was several chances for both teams back and forth but no one could win the game. Finally in the shootout the rangers couldn’t find a way to score and the Panthers walked away with the win.

The rangers came out strong in the first half of the First period, but after that they looked very sloppy the rest of the way. Smith had a good game tonight picking up 2 assists. Zuccarello also had a great game picking up 2 goals. Stepan continues to get good chances, but just can’t find the back of the net. Miller got his 20th goal of the season tonight, a nice milestone for him. Raanta continues to be a great goaltender. He’s made outstanding saves in consecutive games, however tonight it wasn’t enough. The rangers got out worked after the beginning of the game. It’s getting close to time where the Rangers need to pick up their play and get some momentum leading into the playoffs. You have to show more effort than that boys.
