Not only did the New York Rangers score a ton of goals, but they won the game 7–4. There were so many players that stood out in this game, but there were three that stood out from the bunch in this matchup for the Blueshirts.
Nick Bonino finally gets on the point sheet
Nick Bonino has been one of the most underrated players on this team this season, contributing defense, grit, sandpaper, and blocked shots. Against the Bruins, he scored his first goal of the season and his first as a New York Ranger.
He also put the Rangers on the right start in the first period, as it was the game’s first goal. It is about time Bonino puts one in the net.
Artemi Panarin continues to pile on the points
Artemi Panarin yet again had another strong performance by the Blueshirts this season. He contributed three points in this game (one goal and two assists). The goal he scored was in the third period and it was the last goal of the game.
What was impressive most was the two assists that he made. The first assist was on Chris Kreider’s first goal of the game in the first period. His second assist was on the Jimmy Vesey goal in the second period. Assists are important and Panarin made the key assists on both goals.

Chris Kreider continues to shine for the Rangers
Chris Kreider contributed a lot in this matchup for the Blueshirts. He made three points in this game (two goals and one assist). The two goals came in the first period and both sent a message in the game. The assist came in the second period during K’Andre Miller’s goal which put the Blueshirts to a 5–3 lead. Kreider has been phenomenal for the Rangers this season and hopefully he continues to play well for the rest of the season.
