Ranger's first game victory over Devils

In Game 1 of their first-round playoff series on Tuesday night, Igor Shesterkin made 27 stops,

Chris Kreider scored twice on the power play, and the New York Rangers shocked the New Jersey Devils 5-1.

For the Rangers, goals were also scored by Ryan Lindgren, Filip Chytil, and Vladimir Tarasenko.

In this sixth postseason iteration of this river rivalry, the first since 2012, Adam Fox had four assists and Artemi Panarin had two.

The Devils, who established team records in the regular season with 112 points and 52 victories and 

defeated New York three times in four games, never developed a rush defense. 

When they did threaten, Shesterkin either blocked them or they missed the net.

With 2:46 left to play, Jack Hughes converted a penalty shot for their lone goal. 18 saves were made by Vitek Vanecek.
