  • Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Starting in Toronto

    Shesterkin will defend the road net Saturday against the Maple Leafs, Mollie Walker of the New York Post reports.

    Shesterkin has stopped 242 of 254 shots during his seven-game winning streak. He has compiled a 26-12-1 record this season with one shutout, a 2.65 GAA and a .911 save percentage through 39 outings. Toronto ranks second in the league this campaign with 3.66 goals per contest.

  • Rangers' Connor Mackey: Inks two-year extension

    Mackey signed a two-year contract extension with the Rangers on Friday.

    Although the Rangers haven't released the details of the deal, it's probably safe to assume Mackey's extension is a two-way contract. The 27-year-old defender has spent most of the 2023-24 campaign in the minors, picking up two goals and 11 points through 36 games with AHL Hartford, but he's also drawn into one game with the Rangers, picking up one shot, one hit, three blocks and five PIM in 16:27 of ice time versus the Senators on Jan. 27.

  • Rangers' Braden Schneider: Continues to focus on defense

    Schneider notched four blocked shots and one hit to go with a plus-1 rating in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Schneider has just three assists in his last 17 games, and his last goal came Dec. 27 against Washington, so offense hasn't been the young blueliner's calling card of late. Despite the modest production, the 22-year-old Schneider continues to fill an important role on the third pairing for the first-place Rangers by blocking shots and clearing the crease.

  • Rangers' K'Andre Miller: Assists on empty-netter

    Miller had an assist, two shots and a plus-1 rating in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Miller got the secondary helper on Artemi Panarin's empty-netter, which capped the scoring. The helper was Miller's third in his last five games, but he hasn't posted a multi-point game or scored a goal since a two-goal, three-point offensive outburst against the Capitals on Dec. 27. Miller occasionally shows flashes of brilliance offensively, but his lack of a signature performance over the last two months is due in part to lack of opportunities on the power play -- all but one of Miller's 23 points this season have come at even strength, and the other was scored shorthanded.

  • Rangers' Jacob Trouba: Dishes helper in Wednesday's win

    Trouba had an assist, three shots, two blocked shots, one hit and a plus-1 rating in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Trouba showed off his two-way ability Wednesday, even though the physical blueliner's hit total was lighter than usual. His helper came on the second of New York's empty-netters, as Trouba moved the puck to Artemi Panarin, who lifted the puck into the vacated net from the Rangers' blue line to round out the scoring. Asked to play more of a stay-at-home role in New York, Trouba has come nowhere near his 2018-19 career high of 50 points with the Jets since joining the Rangers, and he's at 21 points through 58 games in 2023-24.

  • Rangers' Chris Kreider: Third straight 30-goal season

    Kreider had an empty-net goal and a power-play assist in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Kreider set up Adam Fox's power-play tally in the second period as the Rangers took a 2-0 lead, then scored his 30th goal of the season into an empty net to reestablish the two-goal lead at 3-1 in the third. The late-blooming winger has reached the 30-goal mark in each of the last three seasons after failing to previously hit that milestone in a career that started in the 2012 postseason. Of Kreider's 295 career regular-season goals, 118 have come since the start of the 2021-22 campaign.

  • Rangers' Artemi Panarin: Adds to career-high goal total

    Panarin scored two goals and added an assist in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Panarin opened the scoring in the second period with a mix of luck and skill, as he took advantage of a fortuitous bounce off the linesman's skate after a faceoff and fired the puck five-hole on Elvis Merzlikins. His other two points came late in the third period after Columbus pulled Merzlikins for an extra skater, as Panarin unselfishly dished the puck to Chris Kreider to make it 3-1 before scoring the game's final goal from his own blue line. Panarin's up to 35 goals on the season, having topped his previous career high by three with 22 games to go.

  • Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Stretches win streak to seven

    Shesterkin stopped 30 of 31 shots in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Shesterkin ruined his own shutout bid in the third period, as his giveaway from behind the net to Damon Severson led to Cole Sillinger's goal on the rebound, but he was flawless otherwise en route to a seventh consecutive win. After an uncharacteristically poor first half of the season, Shesterkin has found his form with seven wins in seven starts since the All-Star break for a Rangers team that regained the top spot in the NHL standings with Wednesday's win. The fantasy buy-low window on Shesterkin has long since slammed shut.

  • Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Looking to stay hot Wednesday

    Shesterkin will guard the home goal versus the Blue Jackets on Wednesday, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

    Shesterkin has been unbeatable since the All-Star break, going 6-0-0 with a 1.84 GAA and a .951 save percentage in that span. He'll get a decent matchup Wednesday -- the Blue Jackets have alternated wins and losses over their last six games, scoring 20 goals in that span.

  • Rangers' Artemi Panarin: Pots another in loss

    Panarin scored a goal on three shots during Sunday's 4-2 loss to Columbus.

    Panarin continues to be one of the NHL's most productive forwards this season, with 33 goals and 79 points. He's been remarkably consistent all year, having been held without a point in back-to-back games only once. Since going three games without a point from Nov. 20-24, Panarin has marked the scoresheet in all but nine subsequent games.

  • Rangers' Adam Edstrom: Scores second career goal

    Edstrom scored a goal in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.

    It's just the second goal in Edstrom's eight-game career. The huge forward is endearing himself to Rangers fans, but his value is capped by limited playing time. He's played more than 10 minutes only once and has failed to register even a single shot in six of his eight NHL appearances.

  • Rangers' Jonathan Quick: Win streak snapped

    Quick allowed four goals on 41 Columbus shots during Sunday's 4-2 loss.

    Quick has been huge for the Rangers in his 21 games, as Sunday's loss snapped a four-start win streak and dropped his record to 13-5-2 with a 2.45 GAA and .916 save percentage. However, the veteran backup's starts are coming inconsistently, especially now that Igor Shesterkin is getting back toward his Vezina-like form.

  • Rangers' Jonathan Quick: Starting in Columbus

    Quick will be stationed between the pipes for Sunday's game in Columbus, Mollie Walker of the New York Post reports.

    Quick will make his first appearance since stopping 32 of 36 shots in a win over the Canadiens on Feb. 15. He's riding a four-game winning streak with a .932 save percentage during that span. The 38-year-old is 13-4-2 with a 2.36 GAA and a .917 save percentage through 20 games this season.

  • Rangers' Vincent Trocheck: Five-game, eight-point streak

    Trocheck picked up an assist in a 2-1 win over the Flyers on Saturday.

    Trocheck has eight points (five goals, three assists) during a five-game point streak. His goal streak ended at four games. With 55 points in 58 games, Trocheck is on pace for his best season since his 31-goal, 75-point outburst with Florida during the 2017-18 campaign.
