Video: Brassard breaks Rangers’ lengthy drought
Goals have been very hard to come by lately for both the New York Rangers and Washington Capitals, so Derick Brassard’s 1-0 tally could be a big one in Game 3.
It was a beautiful play between Brassard, Martin St. Louis and Rick Nash, as you can see below:
If you feel like Brassard is the only Rangers player who’s scoring, you’re not totally outrageous. He has five of their 16 postseason goals, and has been the only one to find the net in some time:
Rangers have scored two goals in last 132:25, both by Brassard...— Larry Brooks (@NYP_Brooksie) May 7, 2015
Brassard has 5 goals in playoffs. No one else on Rangers has more than 2.— Tom Gulitti (@TomGulittiNHL) May 7, 2015
The bright side for the Rangers: the Capitals haven’t exactly been lighting up the scoreboard, either.
