Rangers vs. Panthers: Brad Richards breaks his stick after miss

Bruce Bennett

He nearly hit his teammate.

Note to the New York Rangers: Make sure you're not around when Brad Richards misses a goal twice in one sequence. He will be angry.

Richards came so very close to scoring on a deflection near the end of the second period against the Panthers, but just tipped it wide. He then was denied a second time by Florida's goalie, and his stick paid the price. His teammate almost did too.
