The Ranger’s hot streak continues, and so does Artemi Panarin. Panarin scored two goals last night. Panarin finished the night with three points including his sixth goal in his last two games and registering 12 points in his last six (6 goals, 6 assists).

Blueshirts looked a little off the first few minutes, as the Canucks scored first when Joshua put in a scramble rebound. Then Mika Zibanejad tied the game on a 5 hole against the rookie goalie. Zibanejad 28th goal of the season.

Panarin gave the Rangers the lead with a one-timer less than 2 minutes later.
After J.T. Miller tied the game on a PP goal, Niko Mikkola registered his first point as a member of the Rangers when Panarin deflected his point shot for his second and 18th of the year.

Chris Kreider scored just 40 seconds into the second period on a beauty from Zibaenjad and Tarasenko. It was his 251st career goal to surpass the legendary Mark Messier for seventh all-time in franchise history.

K’Andre Miller scored the fifth goal in the middle of the second period to regain the two-goal lead.

Zibanejad scored his 29th goal and second of the game to clinch the win.

The Rangers next game is Friday night at Edmonton.
