Jagr, Shanahan, deliver for Rangers

NEW YORK (AP) - Jaromir Jagr seized the moment. Brendan Shanahan captured the night.

"I don't think you could have scripted it any better," New York coach Tom Renney said Thursday after his two superstars led the Rangers to a season-opening 5-2 victory over the Washington Capitals.

Just moments after being officially introduced as team captain, Jagr delivered a moment that predecessor Mark Messier would have been proud of. He needed just 29 seconds to net his first goal of the season and send the Rangers on the winning track.

Shanahan did him one better, scoring twice in his Rangers debut to become the 15th player with 600 NHL goals.

I wish I was able to see this game. The Highlights on NLNetwork are top notch of course, but I'm sure whoever actually watched the game got a much better taste of what was going on out there.
