“We’ve got a great group and winning makes everything a little bit better. It’s fun to come to the rink … and what’s impressive about our team so far is we’ve won games 1-0 and we’ve won games 7-4. We’re comfortable with our team on any given night,” Vesey said.
K’Andre Miller and Artemi Panarin also contributed goals, showcasing the team’s resilience.
The win marked the seventh comeback triumph of the season for the Rangers. The win coincided with defenseman Adam Fox’s return from a 10-game absence due to a leg injury.
Igor Shesterkin, the Rangers’ goaltender, played a pivotal role with 25 crucial saves, including key stops during a late Detroit power play.
The Red Wings, who had a three-game winning streak halted, witnessed goals from Moritz Seider and Robby Fabbri but fell short in New York for the second time this month.
The game featured intense moments, including a challenge to Vesey’s goal for a potential high stick, which stood after a brief review.
This triumph breaks the Rangers’ trend of consecutive losses. They are leading the President’s Trophy race with 33 (16-4-1) points from 21 games.
