- The losing streak is over, the PP got going again and the Ranger picked up key goals from unlikely players.
- I guess we’re going to see Julien Gauthier around for a little while longer. I don’t think anyone expected that shot of his to hit the empty net, but it did and capped off two straight games where he’s been noticeable. I’m not sure if he is a long-term solution, but with Vitali Kravtsov potentially out again, I think he’s going to be in the mix. Ryan Reaves certainly brings his element each time he is in the lineup, but Gauthier brings more speed and offensive potential. He usually doesn’t reach that potential, but he does usually show off his speed in some way.
- Zac Jones and Gauthier will be the story after their two quick goals, but it was the Rangers best players who were at their best today. Mika Zibanejad and Chris Kreider were both very good, Kaapo Kakko continues to play really well, Artemi Panarin made a sweet pass to Mika Zibanejad, Vincent Trocheck scored twice and Alexis Lafreniere also set up Trocheck’s second goal. Zibanejad and Kreider re-finding their game, and the PP coming alive with it, after a few iffy ones is the best sign for things to come.
- Igor Shesterkin was fine, again. He was beaten twice under the pads, though the second one was called back for an offside. The Rangers haven’t needed him to carry them as much so when he’s just fine it almost seems like a poor performance.
- It just seems like there is a cloud hanging over Vitali Kravtsov and every time he looks healthy and ready to get back in the lineup and show who he is, he gets hurt.
- It was interesting to see the defense pairs split with K’Andre Miller’s struggles, but I’d imagine they are back to normal tomorrow night.
- Next up the Rangers head to Arizona to face the Coyotes tomorrow night.
