Buchnevich scored twice and added an assist in Saturday's 5-0 victory over the Islanders.
The assist came on the power play; his first goal stood as the winner. Buchnevich's game seems to have taken a jump this year and Rangers' coach David Quinn has taken notice. This could be a career season for the slick winger.
Buchnevich (undisclosed) returned to practice Tuesday, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.
Buchnevich has been absent from practice since exiting Saturday's session with an undisclosed issue, but his presence on the ice Tuesday suggests he's already put whatever was holding him out in the rearview mirror. The 25-year-old winger is expected to skate on the Rangers' top line and first power-play unit during the team's qualifying round matchup with the Hurricanes.
Buchnevich (undisclosed) missed a significant portion of Saturday's practice, Rick Carpiniello of The Athletic reports.
Due to the NHL's new injury policy, coach David Quinn wasn't able to shed any light on the reasoning behind Buchnevich's absence following practice, so there likely won't be another update on the 25-year-old winger's status until he's deemed fit to resume on-ice activities. The 2013 third-round pick notched 16 goals and 46 points in 68 games during the regular season.
Buchnevich scored a goal on five shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Avalanche.
Buchnevich extended his point streak to seven games (two tallies, seven helpers) with his goal in the final minute of regulation. The Russian winger has 16 goals, 46 points, 148 shots and 80 hits through 68 contests this year. A fixture in the Rangers' top six at this point, Buchnevich is worth a look in fantasy.
Buchnevich picked up two assists in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Devils.
Buchnevich is riding a five-game, seven-point streak that includes six assists. The points give him 44 on the season, a new career high. He's headed toward a low-50s finish. Buchnevich's growth has been steady and slow. We'd love to see him take a bigger jump, but his game is solid enough for fantasy value. He needs to make that jump soon or Buchnevich risks being your average 55-point NHL winger.
Buchnevich dished out two assists in Thursday's 6-5 overtime win over the Capitals.
Buchnevich will be relied upon for offense down the stretch as New York's top option at right wing with Chris Kreider sidelined by a fractured foot, and the early results are encouraging. The Russian winger has a four-game point streak going since the game in which Kreider went down, and he almost had his second goal in this stretch but rang a grade-A chance off the pipe on the power play in the third period.
Buchnevich recorded a power-play goal, four shots on net and four hits in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Flyers.
The Rangers entered the third period with a 5-1 deficit, so Buchnevich's goal didn't make much of a difference. However, it was his 15th of the season, and now he's four points shy of a career-high 43.

Buchnevich's absence will wind up lasting just two games, as he's slated to retake his spot in the top six and likely on the power play as well. The winger is on pace to set a new career-high total for points if he can stay on the ice the rest of the way.
Buchnevich's (undisclosed) availability for Friday's game against the Flyers won't be decided until pregame skate, Rick Carpiniello of The Athletic reports.

Buchnevich (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Friday's clash with the Flyers, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.
According to Mercogliano, we will likely receive an update on Buchnevich's status when coach David Quinn talks to the press around 5:30 ET, so word on the winger's status should surface well ahead of the contest. If he can't go, Greg McKegg will presumably draw in for a third straight game.
Buchnevich (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup for Thursday's matchup with Montreal, Newsday's Colin Stephenson reports.
Buchnevich was originally considered a game-time decision for Thursday's contest, so the fact that he's already been ruled out suggests his injury may be more serious than intially believed. At this point, the 24-year-old Russian should be considered questionable at best for Friday's matchup with Philadelphia.
Buchnevich (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Canadiens, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.
Buchnevich is still healing from a car accident he was involved in Sunday. The 24-year-old winger is a top contributor for the Rangers with 14 goals and 23 assists through 61 games. He missed Tuesday's overtime win against the Islanders with this injury, and Filip Chytil filled the void on Mika Zibanejad's right wing.
Buchnevich (undisclosed) won't play Tuesday against the Islanders.
Buchnevich is still dealing with soreness stemming from the car accident he was involved in Sunday, and he'll miss at least one game as a result. The 24-year-old winger, who's notched 14 goals and 37 points in 61 games this campaign, will be reevaluated ahead of Thursday's matchup with Montreal.
Buchnevich suffered an undisclosed injury in a car accident Sunday and is considered day-to-day.
Goalie Igor Shesterkin was also in the vehicle and suffered a fractured rib, and he'll sit out at least two weeks. Buchnevich's injury doesn't appear to be that severe, and he could be back in the mix Tuesday versus the Islanders. If he can't go, either Jesper Fast or Kaapo Kakko will likely bump up to the top line in Buchnevich's place.
Buchnevich scored a goal and had an assist in a 6-3 win over Chicago on Wednesday.
After a tough outing against the Bruins, Buchnevich returned to form Wednesday, putting up two points to give him 37 on the season in 59 games. With goals in three of the last four games, Buchnevich is a decent fantasy play at the moment, especially in DFS.
Buchnevich scored a goal and led the team with five shots in a 4-3 shootout win over Minnesota on Thursday.
Buchnevich scored an odd one midway through the third period when his rebound bid in the slot ricocheted off two different players.

He scored what proved to be the game-winner late in the second period to put the Rangers up 4-2, and he also drew secondary assists on goals by Chris Kreider and Greg McKegg (empty-net). The 24-year-old has found twine in four of his last five games, giving him 11 goals and 31 points in 52 contests this season.
Buchnevich lit the lamp on six shots in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Islanders.
Buchnevich logged a season-high 24:18 of ice time thanks to 6:16 of action with the man advantage, which is where he scored his eighth goal of the year. He also managed to tie his season high for shots on goal, but this volume is uncharacteristic for Buchnevich, as he's averaging less than two shots per game. The 24-year-old winger has 26 points through 48 games, and reaching a new career high (44) is within reach after the All-Star break.
Buchnevich (illness) will play in Thursday's game against the Islanders, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.
Buchnevich was labeled a question mark earlier in the day due to an illness, but, similar to Monday against the Islanders, he will play again Thursday. The fourth-year winger should handle his usual duties on the top line and the power play, aiming to add to his 25 points through 45 games.
