The puck had to get by at some point.

Antti Raanta's shutout streak came to an end Tuesday thanks to a goal by Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk at the 5:18 mark of the second period.

A quality finish by @TvanRiemsdyk6 and an apple for the #BreadMan in the Big Apple

The New York Rangers netminder hadn't allowed a goal since the second period of a Dec. 8 game, keeping the opposition from scoring for almost nine periods.

The strong performance of late has given Raanta a leg up on the team's starting job, relegating Henrik Lundqvist to the bench, for the time being at least.
