In the first, each team had been preventing plays from developing with stickwork in the neutral zone, but with the Rangers on a line change, Chris Pronger’s pass up the middle from the goal line to the red line was scooped up in stride by James Van Riemsdyk. Lundqvist blocked his breakaway wrister, but Van Riemsdyk converted the rebound at 15:10 with Staal trying to stop him.
It was the first period in the last six that the Rangers, outshot 12-6, were scoreless. The best chances were a shot from the hashmarks by Voros that was blockered away by Emery and a couple wraparounds.
