Adam Rotter:

  • This felt like one of those games where the Rangers got two in the first ten minutes and then thought it would be easy against a bad team and a goalie that seemed beatable.
  • But the Canucks didn’t go away and basically kept it a one-goal game until the end. This was sort of how I expecting them to play against Calgary, in the first game after the break, but that game became so intense. This game lacked the intensity of the last one and so the sloppiness and struggles tonight were front and center.
  • Still, it’s a win and their third in a row.
  • The Kid Line just continues to impress and more importantly, produce. Filip Chytil had another goal, Alexis Lafreniere was at the net to poke one in and Kaapo Kakko made the pass to Chytil and made the plays that eventually led to Lafreniere scoring. They are performing at a level where Gerard Gallant can roll them as a second line.
  • That leaves Vincent Trocheck, Chris Kreider and Barclay Goodrow on, essentially, the third line, but they scored tonight and still have a big role. The ice time of the two lines will probably be similar night to night, but I think that Trocheck and Kreider and Goodrow could be used in more defensive situations.
  • Big offensive night from Jacob Trouba (2 assists) and K’Andre Miller (3 assists). Miller just continues to be so impressive and Trouba still has his struggles at times, but he looks miles better than he did for most of the season.
  • Next up is Seattle on Friday and then a trip to Carolina on Saturday.
