- This was a nice and well earned point by the Rangers in the second half of a back to back against the Stanley Cup Champs.
- The guys that the Rangers need to get going up front, if they want to make any sort of playoff push, are producing. Zibanejad, Kreider, Vesey and Hayes all scored in the past two days and those are some of the guys that the Rangers need to drive the bus.
- Henrik was caught off guard on Ovechkin's first goal but he had another solid game and was able to keep it close the two times that they fell behind. He's certainly been great to start the year but Alex Georgiev needs to either get 2 of the next three games or be sent to Hartford. He needs to play and while it's hard to take Henrik out of the net when he is giving you a chance to win every night, Georgiev, whether here or in the AHL, needs to play.
- Pavel Buchnevich got back in but didn't do much. Neal Pionk, on the other hand, was great in his second game back, putting up 3 assists.
- All in all this was a nice two-game stretch for the Rangers. It wasn't perfect but it showed where the Rangers hope they are headed under David Quinn.
The Rangers return home for a matchup against the Flames on Sunday at 7 p.m.
