How can you beat that start to your career. good road win to start the season for the Rangers

They both had great starts, what's really scary is Stepan could have actually scored like 5 or 6 goals last night.

He had that breakaway where he had to slow up for Boogaard to get out of the zone, and he still broke away from 3 sabres, he also hit iron on that empty netter.

Good to see hockey's back, and that the Rangers are actually scoring! They averaged 4 a game in the pre-season and put up 6 in game 1. :)

Derek Stepan became only the 4th NHL player to score a hat trick in his first game.

He did it on 3 shots in less than 2 periods, and on Ryan Miller no less.

First 3 goals on first 3 shots was done before back in 2008 by Fabian Brunnstrom of the Dallas Stars.

Brunnstrom's 3rd goal came with 3:25 left in the 3rd period, so Stepan's was actually faster.
