Ryan McDonagh had two goals, 3 shots on goal and skated in a game high 22:25 in the Rangers win over Detroit last night. (Game Notes)
Larry Brooks wrote that McDonagh was "positively Leetchian" in how he used his speed and dominate at both ends of the rink. (NY Post)
Brooks wrote that McDonagh has "elevated his game exponentially" over the last 4-6 weeks and reasserted himself as one of the "prime defensemen" in the NHL. (NY Post)
Alain Vigneault said that McDonagh had a "real strong game."
McDonagh has 3 points in the past two games and 4 points in his past 4 games.
In the last 8 games McDonagh is averaging 24:36.
Adam Rotter: McDonagh needs to be the Rangers best skater on most nights and he has been able to assume that role again lately. His game will always have some ups and downs because of the amount of ice time and situations that he plays in, but when he is good, he is really good and puts the Rangers at another level.
