    Quick Hits: Things Are Looking Up for Rangers

    Trending Up

    7-3-0 in their last ten games, the Rangers have dramatically improved from their nearly season-crashing poor start. They have 35 goals for and a plus-11 goal differential in that span. There’s still work to do, but through 26 games this season, if we’ve learned nothing else we know that there’s no game scenario they can’t compete in.



    Shooting Gallery

    Three goals on six shots—including a dagger given up to nine-games-a-Ranger Micheal Haley—was all it took to earn Lundqvist an embarrassing yank in the first period against the Panthers on Tuesday night. No doubt, it was an off night for The King. If John Tortorella were still coaching, perhaps there’d even have been some scurrilous talk of the “50-percent rule”? On that night, a spade was definitely a spade.





    A Bump for Buch?

    Is anyone else just a bit perplexed by the ice time Pavel Buchnevich—four points in his last five games, and eight in his last ten—is averaging of late? In his last ten games, he’s yet to play more than 18 minutes in a single game. Inarguably one of the team’s top scoring forwards this season, he’s averaged just 14:14 over the same span. At some point that has to increase given how important his line with team-leading scorer Mika Zibanejad and third-highest goal-scorer Chris Kreider is, no?
