Blueshirts‘ last-second comeback prevails against Dallas. The Rangers were held scoreless for the entire game until the last 10 seconds of regulation. K’Andre Miller connected with a snap shot that beat Tim Ottenginge. Early in O.T. Panarin, Zibanajad won offensive battles and forced a turnover. Then set up the game-winner by Adam Fox.

Fox connected with a forehand-backhand pass to the goalie.

“We remember it but it’s a distant memory,” said Fox. “We had our slump. We know what we’re capable of.”

This game didn’t start as positively as it ended. Julian Gauthier parted early for the second straight game, this one with ugly collusion with Sammy Blais.

Rangers lacked their longest-tenured veteran Chris Kreider. He missed the game with an upper-body injury.

They were sloppy and lacked physicality for most of the game. Dallas’s lone goal was given up on a second-period turnover by Barclay Goodrow.

Rangers went 0-4 on the PP and that includes 0-3 in the second period. Igor Shesterkin made 20 saves in his 20th game of the season.

Miller got a bit emotional postgame speaking about his mother sending him a text before the game, something she does before all his games. “She was giving me a lot of motivation,” Miller said, “so it’s pretty easy for myself to focus up for these types of games when I have support like that.”

Next? Rangers play an MLK holiday back-to-back starting with Montreal on Sunday Afternoon. Then head to play Columbus Monday night.
