2020-21 Rangers

Mika Zibanejad is NHL’s Third Star of the Week

From the NHL:

Zibanejad also registered 4-4—8 in four games to guide the Rangers (13-13-4, 30 points) to a 2-1-1 week. He did not reach the scoresheet in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Philadelphia Flyers March 15, but rebounded with 3-3—6 – all in the second period – in a 9-0 win over the Flyers March 17. In doing so, Zibanejad matched the NHL record for points in a single period and became the first Rangers player with a six-point performance since Nov. 25, 1992 (Mark Messier: 2-4—6 at PIT). Zibanejad again was held off the scoresheet in a 2-1 loss to the Washington Capitals March 19, but closed the week with 1-1—2 – including the winning goal with 2:32 remaining in regulation – in a 3-1 triumph against the Capitals March 20. The 27-year-old Stockholm, Sweden, native sits fifth on New York with 7-12—19 in 30 contests this season.
