Rangers 3, HC Slovan 1 after two periods

Henrik Lundqvist kept the sluggish Blueshirts (three games, three countries in four days) in the game in the first, down just 1-0, with 12 saves. Then in the second, the Rangers scored three times, the first on a 5 on 3 with a second effort pass from Richards to Zuccarello (who had two assists in the last game);  Boyle on a deflection in front off a Girardi tape-to-tape pass as PP ended, and Artem Anisimov's rebound of his own shot on the doorstep, shorthanded, after hustle/takeaway behind goalline from Brandon Prust. 

PLUS:  Should the Rangers hold on, it will be the third consecutive win in Europe..

MINUS:  Too many penalties again
