Tampa Bay defeated the Devils on Saturday to eliminate them in the first round of the playoffs.
In his time with New Jersey, Michael Grabner played 21 games, had 2 goals, 3 assists, 4 PIM, 36 shots on goal and an average of 14:39 per game.
Grabner played in the first two playoff games for the Devils, registering 2 shots on goal and an average of 10:35.
Grabner has been a healthy scratch for the Devils in the past three games.
For Tampa Bay, Ryan McDonagh had four assists in 5 games and JT Miller had 1 goal and 3 assists in 4 games.
Adam Rotter: It's pretty clear that the Rangers are the big winners over the Devils in the Grabner trade. New Jersey didn't know at the time that Grabner would be scratched for the final three playoff games but the Rangers turned him into a mid-second round pick and a prospect. Whether either of those assets play in 23 total NHL games remains to be seen, but for right now the Rangers are the winners.
On the Tampa side of things, they look like they are destined to play Boston in the next round in a match up of teams that sent their first round pick to the Rangers. The winner of that matchup will go on to the Eastern Conference Finals and the loser will provide the Rangers with a draft pick in the mid-20s.
