Blake Wheeler celebrates with the boys near the glass

Published May 10, 2024 at 7:04

The New York Rangers have won seven straight Stanley Cup Playoffs games and Blake Wheeler was in full celebration with the guys after they beat the Carolina Hurricanes.

Wheeler, who sustained an injury to his right leg area in mid-February and was ruled out for the rest of the season, did not let the injury prevent him from celebrating.

When Artemi Panarin deflected in the game-winning overtime goal to secure the Rangers' third win over Carolina, the Rangers just so happen to congregate to Wheeler's area to celebrate.

Here's the video showing Blake Wheeler celebrating:

The veteran NHLer pounded on the glass while his teammates surrounded Panarin on the other side.

The Rangers now have a commanding 3-0 series lead against the Carolina Hurricanes with a chance to go their second Eastern Conference Finals in three years.

Carolina has their backs to the wall, and what we would give to be a fly in the room when Rod Brind'Amour loses it after a game like that, especially their power play efforts.

Game four is back in Raleigh where the Hurricanes look to extend the series to game five at Madison Square Garden to keep their playoff hopes alive, but the Presidents Trophy winners are firing on all cylinders.
