Adam Rotter:

  • The Rangers looked rusty, looked sloppy at times and let the Canucks control a lot of the game, especially in the third period, but they leave Vancouver with two points and a six game winning streak.
  • They were certainly the beneficiary of a goalie making his first NHL start and letting in a few he probably should have stopped, but their top guys lead the way with Mika Zibanejad and Artemi Panarin both netting two goals.
  • Both of the Rangers top two lines flashed chemistry at times, especially on the Vladimir Tarasenko to Mika Zibanejad to Chris Kreider goal. Jimmy Vesey continued to look good with Panarin and Vincent Trocheck.
  • It’s three straight games with six goals and the offense is functioning at a high level now, but this should have been a game that the Rangers won 6-1 or 6-2, not 6-4 and with the defensive issues they had.
  • They are able to outscore and beat the teams that they should beat, but some of these games are closer than they probably should be.
  • They will need to tighten up defensively for Friday against the Oilers or it may be a 7-6 game.
