      Rangers' Mats Zuccarello: Collects three points in Thursday's win

      Zuccarello scored a goal and had two assists -- one coming on the man advantage -- in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Blues. Zuccarello and the Rangers pounced all over the Blues and never took their foot off the gas. New York's top line of Zucc, Rick Nash and Derick Brassard combined for two goals and five assists in the game. The Rangers offense is firing on all cylinders and Zuccarello should be heavily involved in each onslaught.

      Rangers' Mats Zuccarello: Gets tricky with three goals Friday

      Zuccarello provided all the offense for the Rangers on Friday, scoring three goals in a 3-1 win over the visiting Leafs. The last tally was an empty-net special, but hey -- they all count. The "Norwegian Hobbit" also skated to a plus-3 in this one and is now up to seven goals and two assists in 11 games this season. Look for Zuccarello to continue to provide a consistent top-six punch for the Blueshirts as the campaign rolls on.

      Rangers' Mats Zuccarello: collects a pair of helpers

      Zuccarello collected a pair of helpers in Thursday's 4-1 victory over Arizona. One of which was a well-timed pass to the front of Mike Smith's crease where a driving Chris Kreider one-timed the puck for his first of the season. Although it's Zucc's first assists of the season, considering the team's lackluster offense early on, no one should be complaining about his six points (leads the team) in eight games. Play the first-line winger with confidence.
