The Moment:
Brad Richards fires home the winning goal
with only 4:55 left to play in the third period


Description: Richards' go-ahead goal snapped a tie and sent the Rangers to their seventh straight victory -- their longest winning streak since October 2009 when they also won seven in a row. "That's exactly why we signed him," Henrik Lundqvist said of Richards. "A guy like that, he has a tendency to step up at the right time."

Comments from fans who voted for Richards' goal ...

The Dallas STAR now shines on Broadway.
-- Steve Wurzbach from Queens, N.Y.

The epitome of clutch
-- Milza from Little Falls, N.J.

It was a great shot, and it was the ideal time for him to score. It shows that he is a player that can come through for us in the clutch when we need him most.
-- Jon Weinberg from Syosset, N.Y.

Is this guy the real thing or what? Reason why I picked this moment: one word -- CLUTCH!!!
-- Ryan McCafferty from Wall, N.J..

It gave us the chance to win, and we did.
-- Susan Rose Carey from Whitestone, N.Y.

Watching all the Ranger fans jump when he scored in Nassau Coliseum was icing on the cake!!
-- Brian S. from Philadelphia, Pa.

Dubi has a way of making key plays at crunch time. After he gloved the puck to keep it in the zone, he made a beautiful pass to Richie, who buried his shot top corner. Key people making key plays at important times. I hope to see a lot more of this as the season goes on!
-- Mike B. from Westfield, N.J.

A great heads-up play by Dubi turns into this beautiful goal by Brad!
-- Ken F. from Winter Park, Fla.

He's been good so far this year, but this was clutch!
-- Tom Maddalena from Saylorsburg, Pa.

As Hank said, that's why we signed him.
-- Marc Twinberrow from Sheffield, England

Captain Clutch 2.0! Brad Richards has shown his grit and flexibility as he has made better every line he has been a part of this season. Great goal from a great Ranger!
-- Mike from Winnipeg, Manitoba

It was such a wonderful shot!
-- Krister Petersson from Stockholm, Sweden

I particularly loved this moment because it confirmed for me that Brad is going to do for the Rangers what he has done for every other team he has played for ... step up when it really counts.
-- Clint Harris from Murray Harbour, PEI

Celebrating my 21st birthday, I was in the Coliseum, and nothing came better that night for me than a big Rangers win over the Isles for a seven-game win streak.
-- Mike from Kings Park, N.Y.

Richards has to be one of the leaders of this group, and no better way to do it by netting the game-winner vs. the Islanders.
-- Andy Dill from Long Beach Island, N.Y.

It is yet another reason why Brad was such a smart signing.
-- Marc Weissman from Shelton, Conn.

Richards is turning out to be everything that the Rangers need -- a solid playmaker with an eye for the back of the net. It's something we haven't had in past years.
-- Jonny from Paramus, N.J.

There is nothing better than winning at the Coliseum, and what a fantastic play by Dubi to set Richards up!
-- Bill Reick from Toms River, N.J.
