In the dynamic realm of hockey, the sport offers a plethora of highlights that linger in our memories. The New York Rangers, a team with a rich history, have contributed numerous moments that resonate with many fans. In this feature titled “Remember When,” we delve into some of these moments—some noteworthy, others less so.

In this particular installment of “Remember When,” we revisit March 19th, 2023, when the New York Rangers showcased some moxie by dominating the Nashville Predators to a final score of 7-0. Following a stellar performance against the Penguins the previous night, concerns arose about a potential emotional letdown, but those fears were quickly dispelled.

The Rangers unleashed an impressive offensive barrage, netting six goals in the first period on six consecutive shots. Filip Chytil, Mika Zibanejad, Tyler Motte, Artemi Panarin, and K’Andre Miller (twice) all found the back of the net within a remarkable six-minute span. In the second period, Chris Kreider added the team’s seventh goal, capitalizing on a rebound from Vincent Trocheck’s shot.

Notably, K’Andre Miller etched his name in Rangers history by becoming the first defenseman to tally four points (two goals, two assists) in a single period. Jaroslav Halak secured the win with 22 saves, marking his first shutout in over two years. This victory also marked the second consecutive shutout for the Rangers, following their blanking of the Penguins the night before, where Igor Shesterkin guarded the net.
