Rangers Time Capsule

The Mystery Penalt Shot

The date was March 14, 1962. The Rangers were playing the Detroit Red Wings at Madison Square Garden with much at stake. The teams were tied in points for the final playoff berth and both teams were in dire need of a victory.

In the 3rd period, Gordie Howe appeared to have put a damper on the evening when he scored a highlight-reel goal, shorthanded to give the Red Wings a 2-1 lead. It was the 500th goal of his illustrious career, which drew a standing ovation from the Ranger faithful. However, that lead was short-lived, as the Rangers would come back a mere 20 seconds later to tie the game at two.

It would be later in regulation where one of the most controversial moments in Ranger history would take place. Ranger forward Dean Prentice was on a clear-cut breakaway when he was pulled down. The referee immediately signaled for a penalty shot. But, he mistakenly awarded the shot to Andy Bathgate, not Prentice. Bathgate skated in alone on Red Wings goalie Hank Bassen, faked the shot, and slid a back hander into the net, to give the Rangers a 3-2 lead. The goal literally rocked the Garden as the crowd jolted with energy.

Sure enough, the Rangers came away with the 3-2 victory and sent the Garden crowd home with smiles. The mystery penalty shot goal became one of the biggest goals in team history. The Rangers would go on a 3-1-1 streak to end the season and sneak into that final playoff berth.
