Stats:

Adam Rotter:

  • This was an interesting one and, once again, showed that this group of players will keep battling until the end. They are a flawed team for sure but that isn’t stopping them from being in most games and often being within striking distance of a win.
  • So much of the rest of this season will be spent on deciding which players the Rangers are going to move forward with and Jimmy Vesey is certainly making his case to be a top-six forward for a long time. Tony DeAngelo keeps putting up points and is never afraid to mix it up.
