Hughes opened the scoring in Thursday's 6-1 loss to the Rangers.

Hughes caught Igor Shesterkin napping, as the goalie seemed to be anticipating an icing call. Instead, the puck took a lively carom off the boards and right onto Hughes' stick in front. The second-year center has played his best hockey against the Rangers this season, scoring three goals in three games against New York and two goals in 16 games against everyone else.
