Girardi had two assists, played 26:06, 2 shots on goal, 1 shot that was blocked, 4 hits and 6 blocked shots.
Joe Micheletti said, "he was so good and his reads offensively and defensively were as perfect as you could get. He knew when to stay in the zone, he knew when to be aggressive in the corners, his stick was tremendous in knocking the puck off and deflecting shots and passes. Just about everything he did, he was so smart, made the big blocks, had a few hits, led the defensive rush for the Rangers. He was excellent.
