Yana Tarasenko had plenty to celebrate following the Rangers’ 5-1 victory over the Devils on Tuesday night.
Taking to Instagram, the wife of Rangers winger Vladimir Tarasenko posted a series of photos and videos from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, where the Blueshirts dominated their Hudson River rival in Game 1 of their opening-round playoff series.
“Let’s go Rangers!” Yana captioned an Instagram post that featured her family all rocking Tarasenko jerseys.
Tarasenko, who was acquired by the Rangers in February in a trade with the St. Louis Blues, scored the first goal of the night less than five minutes into the first period.
“I think we played well most of the game, but still gave up [too] many chances,” Tarasenko said. “Igor [Shesterkin] played great. I think that we can play better, especially defensively, to eliminate those chances and make our goalie’s life easier.”
Shesterkin, last year’s Vezina Trophy winner, logged 27 saves and nearly shut out the Devils before center Jack Hughes scored on a penalty shot late in the third period.
As fans exited the venue after the game, Yana — who has been married to Tarasenko since 2015 — stayed to watch the Rangers savor the victory on the ice.
In a post shared on her Instagram Story, Yana tagged Tarasenko alongside a kiss emoji.
Since arriving in New York earlier this year, Tarasenko’s family has made Madison Square Garden something of their second home.
In addition to cheering on the Rangers, the Tarasenko family has taken in Knicks games as well.
Tarasenko and Yana are parents of three.
Not only is the NHL star a proud stepfather to Yana’s son Mark, but the couple also has two sons together, Aleksandr and Artem.

Artem arrived in 2019, the same year Tarasenko won his first Stanley Cup as a member of the Blues.
The Rangers will return to the Prudential Center on Thursday for Game 2 of their series against the Devils.
