Through three games, Mika Zibanejad has 4 goals (3 on the PP), a minus two rating, 15 shots on goal, 22 shot attempts and a 55.75 faceoff win percentage.
After scoring twice on opening night, Zibanejad said that he was doing his best to find open space and just shoot the puck. (MSG)
He said last night that the puck is going in for him and "I just am trying to place myself in a good spot out there and the guys are finding me and the puck seems to be going in. That's just the mentality. You just have to keep shooting when you are hot, I guess." (NYR Game Notes)
Alain Vigneault said on Sunday that the Rangers put a lot of faith in Zibanejad with his new contract and that he is expected to be "an impact player on our team. The way he started is the way he has to continue. He has to be a force on the ice and a difference maker and that is what we expect from him."
