Zibanejad netted the overtime winner as well as a shorthanded assist and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's Game 5 victory over Montreal. He was all over the stat sheet, adding four hits and four blocked shots -- rare defensive production for a forward. Zibanejad said after the Rangers went down 2-1 in the series that he was playing too passively, but he's picked up his aggressiveness noticeably in the past two games, and it's made a major difference.
Zibanejad picked up a pair of helpers in Sunday's win over the Penguins. A great way to finish off the regular season for Zibanejad, who also scored Saturday against Ottawa. The 23-year-old only scored 14 times this year, but he missed significant time due to injury and has been productive of late. The Rangers will need him to continue finding the back of the net to help get past Carey Price and the Habs in Round 1.
Zibanejad scored the Rangers only goal in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Senators. Zibanejad had come alive of late with seven points, including three goals, in his last eight games. He'll be a solid play in postseason pools.
Zibanejad recorded two assists for the second consecutive game Sunday against the Ducks. Zibanejad hasn't scored in eight games, but he's appearing on the scoresheet consistently and is up to 33 points in 50 games. The 23-year-old centers the second line and appears to have built some chemistry with Rick Nash. The former Senator has a lethal shot, so with this solid point production, it's only a matter of time before he's back in the goal column.
Zibanejad had two assists in Saturday's win over the Kings. Zibanejad has been producing nicely on the team's second line of late, managing three goals and seven points in his last 10 games. The 23-year-old doesn't tear up the scoresheet, but he's fairly consistent and we've seen his lethal shot on display on numerous occasions. Keep him rolling, as his top-six role, power-play time and sniping ability make him a solid fantasy play.
