I've never seen anything like this. First 15 minutes, total domination Rangers. Next 25 minutes, even worse domination Islanders. Next 20 minutes not domination but Rangers with the much better of the play. First half of OT, all Islanders. Almost the whole second half (till the last seconds), all Rangers. 5 different games. Neither team deserved a point frankly. Terribly played game. Something I'd expect from the pre-lockout Rangers.
On the positive. Hagelin is one of our best players. Not just today, in general. He had a slow start. However the guy is a stud. He works so hard that as long as he plays him game, he'll get 45 points just off hard work alone. He looks more talented now. He had some moves. If the guy had Richards' shot he'd be a PPG player. One of the best in the league. Love the guy. We're VERY lucky to have him. 6th round pick too. Between Hank and Hags, I can't wait to see Fasth.
I'd say the rangers dominated the 3rd period, they just couldn't get the puck in the net. Nabokov played very well and the Islanders d came up with timely checks/break-ups.
