Chytil scored a goal on three shots in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Hurricanes in Game 1. Chytil scored the Rangers' lone goal in the contest, burying a feed from Alexis Lafreniere off a rush in the first period.

Chytil scored a goal on two shots in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Penguins. Chytil scored the eventual game-winner on a third-period power play, picking up a loose puck and firing a wrist shot past Louis Domingue.

Chytil posted an assist in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Penguins in Game 3. Chytil picked up his first point in three playoffs this year when he helped out on a Kaapo Kakko tally in the first period. The 22-year-old Chytil has 22 points in 67 regular-season outings -- he's had 22 or 23 points in each of the last four years, failing to take a step up on offense. He's locked in as the third-line center, though Barclay Goodrow (lower body) could challenge that if he's able to return later in the postseason.
Chytil (undisclosed) is in Tuesday's lineup against Carolina, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports. Chytil was absent from Saturday's loss to Boston but he'll return after missing just one game. The 22-year-old has seven goals and 21 points through 64 games this season.
Chytil (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision versus Carolina on Tuesday, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports. Chytil was back on the second power play at Monday's practice session, so all signs point to him suiting up against the Hurricanes even if he is officially a game-time call. With the center back in the lineup, he will look to get over the 23-point threshold for the first time in his four-year NHL career.
