Filip Chytil extended his goal streak to 5 games as the Blueshirts beat the Canucks 4-3 on Wednesday night. 

“I love scoring goals,” Chytil said. “It’s a great feeling, but it’s a great feeling also because we are winning the games and it’s helping the team get the points. “

K’Andre Miller set a new career high with 3 assists.

“To be honest, it feels a little bit like last year with that type of belief,” Miller said. “Obviously, not winning in the prettiest ways all the time, but just finding a way, sticking it out to the last second, and finding a way to win, really.”

The Rangers opened up fast on Miller’s first assist. A hard bounce pass off the boards led to a 2-1 odd-man rush which Kreider tapped in his 250th career goal from Trochock.

Then Miller helped set up the second goal with his fellow Blueshirt kids. Miller gained the faceoff from the left circle and passed to Kakko around the trapezoid. Then Chyil came up on Kakko’s left and scored on a wrist shot to the glove hand of Vancouver’s goalie Spencer Martin.

Lafreniere scored in his second game in many days to extend the lead 3-1 on another Miller assist. Canucks cut the lead to 1, with JT Miller assisting for his 500th career point against his former team.

Zibanejad deflected a shot that gave the Blueshirts a two-goal lead. Ranger hung on for a 4-3 win.

Shesterkin made 22 saves in his 22 win of the season.

Rangers host the Seattle Kracken tomorrow night at the Garden.
