Against the Bruins last night, Pavel Buchnevich scored on his only shot attempt and put the Rangers up 1-0 in the third period.
Buchnevich played 15:13 and played 5:36 in the first, 4:17 in the second and 5:20 in the third.
He played 11:41 at even strength and 3:32 on the PP.
Alain Vigneault said that the Rangers were told that Buchnevich was Hartford's best player on Wednesday and that he came to Boston last night and played a "strong game."
Vigneault noted that he had Buchnevich on the ice near the end of the game and that he was happy with how Buchnevich "bounced back" for the Rangers.
Buchnevich had played 11 games prior to last night where his ice time was under 15:13. Buchnevich had 1 assist and only 10 shots on goal in those 11 games.
Adam Rotter: He was good last night and that shot he scored on is why he is so highly touted and important to the Rangers present and future. He should stay up in an offensive role for now, even if that puts Michael Grabner, when he returns, onto the fourth line. I'm sure he will have some slow moments again and see time on the fourth line or possibly as a scratch again, but hopefully scoring three goals against two leagues will get his confidence going.
