TOP SHELF TRIVIA: Mike Ramsey of the University of Minnesota (and 1980 U.S. Olympic Team) was the first American college player to be selected in the first round of an NHL Entry Draft when he was chosen by the Buffalo Sabres with the 11th overall pick in 1979. HOCKEY MATH ANSWER: With Ryan McDonagh patrolling the Broadway blueline, the Rangers scored 17 more goals than they sur- rendered, while Zach Parise was on the ice for 12 more goals than the Devils gave up. That means McDonagh's +/- rating was five points higher than Parise's. k Tom Barrasso holds the all-time mark for the most assists by a goaltender with 48 helpers over the course of his 19-year NHL career.
