The New York Rangers were a team that was hunting goals all season long.
More often than not, that hunt was unsuccessful The Rangers could be counted on for one or two goals in most games. Any more than that, and head coach John Tortorella would do a little dance behind the Rangers bench.
But as the Rangers came together following the trade deadline, they seemed to be a more complete team. They have been growing since early March and appear to have matured greatly even in the past two games.
Instead of getting a goal or two and holding on with Henrik Lundqvist in the net, the Rangers have scored four goals in back-to-back games.
In their Wednesday night 4-3 victory over the Caps in Game 4, Brad Richards, Carl Hagelin, Dan Girardi and Derek Stepan scored for New York.
Girardi and Stepan both scored when the game was on the line in the third period.
Late goals from the Rangers? It's reality, and they have evened up their series with the Caps at 2-2.
