Fox and Schneider get a goal and an assist each, Quick posts shutout, Rangers top Oilers 3-0

By The Associated Press on October 26, 2023.

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) – Adam Fox and Braden Schneider each had a goal and an assist, Jonathan Quick made 29 saves and the New York Rangers beat the Edmonton Oilers 3-0 on Thursday night.

Alexis Lafreniere also scored for the Rangers (5-2-0), who have won three games in a row. Quick earned his 59th career shutout.

The Rangers broke a scoreless deadlock on the power play 3:32 into the second period as Fox took a feed from Vincent Trocheck and sent a slapshot that eluded Stuart Skinner, who finished with 29 saves.

Schneider added to the lead at 12:03 when he managed to keep a back pass in at the blue line before unleashing a long shot that beat Skinner high to the stick side.

After hitting a pair of posts, the Rangers extended their lead with less than two minutes to play in the second period.

Artemi Panarin picked up his second assist of the contest and pushed his scoring streak to seven games with a long pass to Lafreniere, who unleashed a one-timer before the Oilers goalie could get across.

Quick kept his shutout intact with seven minutes to play, stopping Zach Hyman with a glove save in tight.

Less than a minute later it looked like the Rangers had struck again, but a review determined that Will Cuylle had kicked the puck into the net.

The Oilers have lost four straight games and are off to a 1-5-1 start. The Oilers also played without star forward Connor McDavid, who has an upper-body injury.
