This is the fourth straight season where Zuccarello has at least 49 points and his 3rd season in the past 4 where he has registered 50 points.
Alain Vigneault spoke about Zuccarello after the game last night and said, "even when he wasn't scoring goals I thought he was working extremely hard and playing well. This is a 200ft game, there are two nets and you gotta play well at both ends and Mats had been doing that even though he hadn't been scoring for us."
Zuccarello said that it's "all right" to score goals but that it doesn't mean much when the Rangers lose. (Nettavisen)
