Prior to the game, Alain Vigneault said "he's a young player, like I have mentioned a lot of times. We are talking to him about the areas that he is doing well and want him to continue and there are other areas where he needs to improve on and we are doing that on a daily basis and I am confident he will have a good game tonight."

From the Rangers Game Notes, "Pavel Buchnevich registered an assist on the game-winning goal and posted a plus-one rating. He has recorded an assist/point in two of his last three games, and he has tallied four points (two goals, two assists) in his last eight contests."
