VIDEO: Ryane Clowe gets his first goal with the Rangers
Ryane Clowe finally has a goal. And then he scored another one.
When he was a member of the San Jose Sharks, Ryane Clowe had the most shots on goal in the league without actually scoring. He's proven throughout his career to be a better player than that and it was only a matter of time until he scored.
And then he added another one in the second period. After the trade, I guessed that if Clowe kept generating shots at the same pace he did in San Jose he could probably finish the season with around three or four goals for the Rangers. It took less than two periods to nearly reach that.
The Rangers went on to beat the Penguins 6-1.
Of course this offensive outburst from the Rangers came right after I argued that their recent trades weren't going to boost their slumping offense, and just about all of the new guys had a hand in it. I'm still not convinced the Rangers are a better team, but for one night, the new guys made a difference.
