Instead of giving up and writing off the rest of the period, New York focused on finishing strong. Camille Henry scored at 4:03, followed by Ken Schinkel's tying goal prior to the 8 minute mark.
With the clock counting down, Dean Prentice emerged as the hero of the night. The native of Schumacher, Ontario took a pass from Schinkle and took "a hard high shot" which hit Bruins goalie Don Simmons on the shoulder. At 19:59 the puck entered the net, completing the Rangers comeback.
It was a timely win for the Blueshirts. Coach Al Pike threatened to make changes if his last place club didn't start winning. One alteration made by Pike was placing Andy Bathgate on a line with Red Sullivan and Johnny Wilson. Bathgate scored the opening goal at 8:39 of the first.
A timely win in so many ways.
