A New York Rangers fan wins a car after nailing a near-impossible shot from center ice
One lucky New York Rangers fan walked away from Tuesday night’s game with a brand new car after nailing a shot from center ice.
Ryan Rosado of New Jersey hit the shot from center ice during the shoot-to-win contest as the game went into a break. He lost his first attempt when he was on the blue line, in which he would have won $500.
Rosado then shot the puck through a small cutout the same size as the puck from further away. He jumped in celebration after the puck disappeared behind the sign and the fans at Madison Square Garden erupted. Rosado walked up to a new 2023 Hyundai Tucson SUV and got into the passenger seat.
“My whole body was so numb,” Rosado he said the New York Post. “I didn’t hear anything. I think the puck bounced off a piece of snow and went in. I almost passed out when I saw it.”
Rosado replaced his sister, Kaylawho was supposed to take the shot from center ice, but she refused and let her brother do it.
Rosado also left with a stick signed by the Rangers forward Mika Zibanejadthe player whose Rosado jersey was put on the ice.
The Rangers lost 4-3 to their in-state rivals, the New York Islanders, after blowing a 3-1 lead in the third period.
