Rick Nash, # 61

News
Nash picked up a power-play assist, two PIM and three shots in Thursday's 4-2 loss against the Islanders.

The points have been coming in on a slow drip -- just four in his last 11 contests. However, Nash has remained quite active around the net, which ought to ultimately yield increased production. There's obviously upside here, but don't overpay for the name brand.

Kevin Klein, # 8

News
Klein (illness) will be back in action Sunday for a home game versus the Capitals.

He's going to replace Adam Clendening on the third pair. Klein mixes it up on the back line with a healthy blend of hits and blocked shots -- he's posted 122 and 112 of those, respectively, this season -- and one wouldn't be right to call Klein a slouch in the attacking zone based on a respectable three goals and 11 helpers in 52 games.

Henrik Lundqvist, # 30

News
Lundqvist will start in goal Sunday against the Capitals, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.

Lundqvist enters Sunday having won five of his last six starts between the pipes. While his efforts have been hit or miss over the span, the King is finally receiving the offensive support he deserves. Lundqvist will likely require a fair amount again Sunday against a Capitals club second in the league (3.39 goals per game) in scoring this season.

News
McDonagh went scoreless with a minus-2 rating, one shot and six blocks in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Islanders.

The blocked shots were one short of his season high. Of course, fantasy owners expect blocks to be just a part of McDonagh's stat package, but his offense has dried up recently -- he has just four assists in his last 12 games. That said, he's at least shooting relatively often (24 in that span), so he should come out of this slide, especially if his career-low 2.0 shooting percentage starts normalizing.

News
Skjei distributed a pair of assists -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Islanders.

The points weren't really flowing for a nearly two-month stretch there (one goal and five assists over 26 games from Nov. 20 to Jan. 17), but Skjei has woken up in a major way over the last four weeks, posting 10 points over a 12-game span. Getting more shots to the net is a big key to that endeavor; the rookie blueliner has taken 27 shots in those 12 contests, representing a far better ratio than the 56 he took in the first 44 games of the year. That said, his minutes remain too slender for Skjei to be counted on outside of very deep fantasy formats.

Jesper Fast, # 19
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS

News
Fast went scoreless with a minus-2 rating and a single shot on goal in Thursday's loss to the Islanders.

He has just two points in his last 14 games, making Fast's decent start to the year (10 points and a plus-9 rating in the first 17 games) a distant memory. With a bottom-six role that includes almost no power-play time, the Swedish winger isn't moving the needle much for fantasy purposes, but owners in deep dynasty leagues may want to keep him around based on his solid past production in Sweden and the AHL.

News
Buchnevich was a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against the Islanders, with Rangers coach Alain Vigneault noting that he felt the rookie looked "nervous" and had a "little dip there in energy level" in Monday's game, the New York Daily News reports.

Since posting a four-game point streak upon returning from a back injury, Buchnevich had marked the scoresheet just once in a 10-game span, and his ice time accordingly dropped precipitously. He probably won't be on the sidelines for long, though, so look for the 21-year-old Russian to get it going again once he's allowed back on game ice.
