The Rangers outshot a scrambling Lightning squad, 20-3, in the first period on Thursday night in a display of complete dominance, walking off the ice for intermission with a 2-1 lead. Nash was seemingly everywhere in the first period, registering four shots on goal. He nearly converted on a slick deke midway through the period but was stopped by Mathieu Garon.
The 20 shots allowed were the most in a single period all season. For those of you wondering, the record is 25 by the Washington Capitals in 1999.
Meanwhile, that's the fewest shots in a period by Tampa Bay all season.
