Adam Rotter:

  • The win streak is over, the points streak hits 10 and ultimately the Rangers didn’t play at their best for parts of this trip, but they still come away with five of six points in Canada and seven of eight overall on the road trip.
  • They showed again, after going down early, that they they will generate chances, chip away and stay within striking distance to tie games and, in most of the prior games, come away with wins.
  • This was a tough game, second half of a back-to-back/ after a comeback win and the third in four nights against a team that was looking for revenge from nearly two weeks ago. They fell behind quickly, Calgary had the puck for a lot of the night, but ultimately Jaro Halak kept the Rangers in the game and they found a way to tie it.
  • They looked tired, which is understandable after the travel and the emotion of Friday’s comeback win. Unfortunately they only get today off before Winninpeg comes in tomorrow for another three in our net stretch.
  • Vincent Trocheck had hit a lull of sorts in his game for a few weeks, but he’s really starting to come on and find his stride in the last little while. I think that overall he’s had a pretty good first season with the Rangers, but it looks like his best play is on the way.
  • Another goal, his first career PP goal, and one at the net for Alexis Lafreniere. He too has really been finding his stride lately and he isn’t just playing well with Kakko and Lafreniere, he’s starting to produce. It’s great when they have the puck, are generating chances and the Rangers most consistent line, but it’s another when they do that and that trio gets rewarded. Filip Chytil has 35 points, so he’ll almost certainly get there, but Kakko and Lafreniere look like they could hit 40-45 points this year.
  • Vladimir Tarasenko is clearly finding his way and Gerard Gallant is figuring out whether he should stick with Mika Zibanejad or put him with Artemi Panarin. I wouldn’t be shocked if Tarasenko and Jimmy Vesey swap spots for tomorrow night and the Rangers give Tarasenko and Panarin some run together.
  • They return to MSG for Winnipeg on Monday and then head to Detroit on Thursday and Washington on Saturday.
