Rick Nash, # 61
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS

News
Nash scored a goal for the fourth consecutive game in Sunday's loss to Anaheim.

He has exactly one goal and no assists in each of those games, so it's not the hottest of hot streaks, but Nash's fantasy owners will certainly take it. Still, it would be nice to see the one-time star increase his output, as he hasn't put together a multi-point game since Jan. 17; in the 30 games between then and now, he's recorded a modest 14 points.

Henrik Lundqvist, # 30

News
Lundqvist allowed five goals on 35 shots in a 5-4 overtime loss Tuesday in San Jose.

The veteran Swede has been atrocious in his two games since returning from a hip injury, allowing five goals in each. With just five games remaining before the puck drops on the postseason, the Rangers are likely going to want Lundqvist to get as many reps in as possible so he's ready for the playoffs, but the early results have not been encouraging. Look for a bounce-back performance from the King in the Rangers' next outing Friday, which may not be an easy task against the Penguins.

Marc Staal, # 18
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS

News
Staal notched an assist over 18:40 of ice time in Sunday's road loss to Anaheim.

The point snapped a six-game drought during which Staal put just four shots on goal, which is pretty illustrative of his fantasy value. A heavy hitter with offensive upside in his youth, Staal has never quite been the same player since his brother Eric gave him a concussion on a big hit in 2011; this year, he has just 10 points and 81 hits in 67 games, leaving him off the fantasy radar in the vast majority of formats.

Michael Grabner, # 40
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
712712392510
 
News
Grabner has been held off the scoresheet for since consecutive games spanning two full weeks.

He's gone minus-5 in that span, but the Austrian winger has at least put 12 shots on goal. As a guy whose offensive output is almost entirely contingent on him getting (and converting on) breakaways, he's predictably inconsistent. That said, he's just three goals away from hitting 30 for the second time in his career, so look for Grabner to make a push in that interest over the Rangers' remaining games.

Dan Girardi, # 5
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS

News
Girardi, who sat out Sunday against the Ducks, will be in the lineup Tuesday against the Sharks.

Girardi has only played in one March game, but he recorded 20:03 of ice time, one assist, and dished out three hits -- a solid contribution. This season has been filled with ups and downs for the blueliner, making him a risky start in most leagues.

News
McDonagh's goal Saturday in Los Angeles was his 40th point of the season.

This is the second time McDonagh's reached the 40-point mark, but fantasy owners' dreams of him hitting 50 seem to have been just that: dreams. It seemed like that was nearly guaranteed after he rattled off 25 points in his first 38 contests, but the Rangers' captain has really slowed down since the new year, modestly netting 15 points over 37 games. However, he's at least gone plus-10 with 77 shots in that span, so he's still contributing to some degree for fantasy owners.

Derek Stepan, # 21
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
771636521716
 
News
Stepan scored a goal in his second straight game Sunday against Anaheim.

Stepan has a point in each of his past three contests now, and he'll need to continue this pace over the final six games if he wants to meet his career-high 57 points in a season. He continues to play on the Rangers' top line and power-play unit, so he'll remain a credible fantasy option for the remainder of the season.

J.T. Miller, # 10
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
772232541721
 
News
Miller scored a pair of goals Tuesday in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Sharks.

Miller's second tally 4:44 into the third period came on the power play. His 22 goals tie last year's career high and, interestingly enough, only two in each of the last two seasons have come with the man advantage. Through 77 games, the 24-year-old also has a career high in assists (32), points (54), plus/minus (plus-17), power-play points (seven) and ice time (16:25), so it's safe to say he's been a boon to owners in 2016-17.

Mika Zibanejad, # 93
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
51122133814
 
News
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.

Chris Kreider, # 20
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS

News
Kreider picked up an assist and four shots along with a minus-2 rating in Sunday's road loss to Anaheim.

He'd missed the scoresheet four consecutive times in search of his 50th point of the season, but Kreider's finally reached that plateau for the first time. The 25-year-old winger has notably improved his offensive consistency this year, setting career highs in a number of categories already -- goals (26), points and power-play points (13) most notably -- and he'll set another one when he adds six more shots to his season total of 175.

Brady Skjei, # 76

News
Skjei dished out three assists in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Sharks on Tuesday.

The rookie rearguard is having a whale of a season, as he's now up to 38 points and a plus-13 rating across 76 contests. If Skjei isn't a household name among hockey circles yet, he will be soon if he keeps up this kind of production.

News
Hayes garnered a pair of helpers in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Sharks on Tuesday.

Hayes had been cold lately with just a single assist in his previous seven contests. Nonetheless, the 24-year-old has exceeded expectations this season, tying his career-high 17 goals from his rookie campaign while setting a new personal best of 49 points. His 16:32 of average ice time is nearly three minutes more than last year, as well.
