Jesper Fast was a force for the Rangers in Game 3 on Wednesday night, scoring twice in his first career multi-goal game.

Fast had perhaps his best career performance, now 87 total games old. His first goal was off a sweet forehand-backhand breakaway finish to make it 2-0 Rangers midway through the first period. But it was his second tally that loomed large, as he broke Tampa's momentum of three straight goals just 29 seconds after Alex Killorn made it 4-3 late in the second period. Fast also drew a tripping penalty on Andrej Sustr early in the third. Fast now has three goals and six points in 15 games this postseason.

I’m just trying to make the best of it." Fast has a goal and four points in 13 games, all against Washington in the second round.
