February was the first full month of the season, and although it wasn't an ideal one for the Rangers there were still plenty of quality moments. The Rangers already played their first game in March yesterday with a shootout win against the Sabres, but let's take one last look at the month of February with my compilation of the team's top five goals of the month.
I took a number of factors into consideration when ranking the goals, including importance, if it's a milestone, and of course the actual skill level and difficulty of the goal and/or how it was set up. I left out any shootout goals.
This month unsurprisingly featured a lot of Rick Nash. So what do you think? Would you change the order? Or did I leave any out that should have been included? Let's hope March is a better month for the Rangers and is one that will provide for an even better video.

Great video. Gotta make one every month and then end of year top 10 or something. Make this a feature!
Disagree with Miller's goal as #3 as it was a little lucky, but overall good list.
I think Nash's goal against Tampa has to be number 1. Not only was it a great finish, but he beat one of the best defenseman in the NHL at the time, in Hedman, to get to the net. That was a filthy goal...
Would have liked Hagelin's goal the other night vs. Tampa when he sidestepped defenseman and slapped it home. Great list though.
@jbs319 Got to talk with @Herman_NYRBlog about that. I think he was hoping some of the Blackhawks magic would rub off on the Rangers. lol
I would just like to add that Nash is ridiculous... wow... watching him play is such a pleasure... he gets me so pumped up...
@boogiepicker He has scored that same exact goal 3 times this month if im not mistaken... all on the power play... open net stuff in...
@KunkelW @TheNYRBlog Why not? The song exists beyond the scope of the Blackhawks, and I like the song. Not like I picked the Devils' song.
@stefaniealva Don't worry, Harry Z won't be playing.. He is learning a $12,000 lesson.But Shanahan let Pacioretty go with no suspension
@Herman_NYRBlog @TheNYRBlog I mean, it is another teams goal song. We have one of the best ones. Plus, I think we all want to hear it more.
@stefaniealva LOL Weber was not suspended for this playoff hit on Zetterberg last year; https://t.co/lWQXlf9MzU
@Flyers4Cup yeah that made me mad, at least kaleta has to pay 75k on top of his suspension, does he even make that much? Hahaha
