More importantly, defenceman Ryan Murphy snapped out of his season long funk and scored a goal and collected three assists.
Murphy had been labouring up until that point. He was away at NHL camp, then dealt with a concussion and returned early to Kitchener after being snubbed by Team Canada's world junior squad.
The off-ice issues had an impact as Murphy had just 14 points in his first 23 games.
But the four-point game against the Fronts changed everything. Something switched in Murphy and he got back to his old offensive ways the rest of the way potting 40 points over his final 26 games.
He then added 22 points in 16 playoff games and was one of the most dangerous Rangers on the ice during that span.
Credit the Rangers for having faith and not trading a struggling Murphy at the trade deadline about a week earlier.
