- Well, right now the Rangers are finding ways to win and getting some big performances from their key players. There are things to clean up but winning is the most important thing right now and the Rangers are finding ways to do that.
- This was an up and down game where on two separate occasions in the third period it seemed like the Rangers had things in hand in regards to a win, but Florida tied it both times and forced OT. The Rangers flashed some structure tonight at times but also got scrambly and sloppy with the puck. Overall though the Rangers carried over enough of their good play from Tampa Bay to win this game.
- JT Miller had a great game and was playing with supreme confidence when he had the puck. I think he overhandles the puck sometimes but that is something you take when Miller plays a game like he did tonight. 3 assists tonight and the OT winner on Thursday, the Rangers needed more from Miller and right now they are getting it.
- This is what Kevin Shattenkirk is. He can move the puck really well, has a deceptive shot and is putting up points. It's much easier to take some of his struggles in the defensive zone and the occasional blunder with the puck when he can erase those mistakes with a goal or assist.
- Michael Grabner is starting to look a lot more like he did last year, not just that he scored, but that he looks fast after not really showing off his speed early in the year. Ryan McDonagh is starting to contribute more offensively and Rick Nash continues to push things offensively and only get rewarded on a fraction of his chances.
- It was a good shot but Henrik Lundqvist probably wants that fourth goal back. Allowing four goals will certainly not help his sluggish numbers, but he has three wins in a row and I bet that is what matters most to him.
- All the sudden the Rangers are just one game under .500 and have jumped up a bit in the standings. They still need to get their goal differential going in the right direction but if they can continue to win, or at least find ways to win, that will happen.
What's Next: The Rangers will host the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday at 7 p.m.
