Adam Rotter:

  • This game meant nothing to the Rangers and they played most of it like that. It’s hard to get up for the second half of a back to back against a Western Conference opponent, especially after last night’s emotional and physical win over Tampa.
  • It was nice to see them at least get a point because it just is, but it’s most important that the Rangers came out of this game seemingly healthy and that Jacob Trouba seemed fine after he left last night’s game. I’m still guessing that we don’t see Patrick Kane before Game 1. I could see there being an outside shot of next Thursday’s regular season finale against Toronto just for him to get a game in, but I think it’s more than likely that we don’t see Kane until one of the first shifts of Game 1.
  • Vladimir Tarasenko looks comfortable and picked up two points in his return to St. Louis. Tarasenko and the first PP unit scored again…without Patrick Kane. They scored again with the extra attacker to tie it, but I wonder, especially if Kane is going to be out, if they don’t start the playoffs with this current group as PP1 and Kane shifts to essentially being the QB for the 30-40 seconds that PP2 gets on the ice.
  • Jaro Halak was solid again. The Rangers don’t want to need Halak in the playoffs, but if he is needed I think the Rangers will feel comfortable.
  • Three more to go before the playoffs and the next one is Saturday in Columbus. Columbus just got blown out by the Devils and so Saturday could be a big game for padding stats and hitting some nice numbers and career highs.
