Rangers vs. Maple Leafs: Rick Nash scores power-move goal

USA TODAY Sports

Nazem Kadri's miss on an open net led to an impressive goal for Nash.


A crazy sequence brought the New York Rangers within a goal of the Toronto Maple Leafs in the second period on Monday.

James Reimer has been outstanding for the Leafs so far, but a misplay behind the net left his team in a horrible position. The puck dribbled in front of the wide-open net and somehow Nazem Kadri couldn't put it home past the desperate stick of Anton Stralman.

That goal would've put the game well out of reach for the Rangers. Instead, Rick Nash scored one of the more impressive goals of the season just a minute later. It was the second of the game for Nash, and was a typical power-forward move from one of the league's best power forwards.

Derek Stepan tied the game at 3-3 with a rocket of a snipe later in the period, but Phil Kessel bounced back with a big goal to retake the lead for Toronto.
