In the past two games the Rangers have had a combined total of 11:09 on the PP and have not scored.
Against Chicago they were scoreless in 6 minutes of PP time, including a double minor, and only attempted 7 shots and put 5 on goal.
On how the PP performed against Chicago, Alain Vigneault said that they didn't execute well and weren't strong enough in their puck battles.
Vigneault added that the Rangers worked on their PP on Thursday during practice.
Against Columbus the Rangers were scoreless in 5:09 on the PP, attempting 6 shots and only putting 2 on net, the same number they allowed Columbus to have on the PK.
Vigneault said last night that the Rangers PP didn't execute and that they will have to get back to work with it.
As of Saturday evening the Rangers PP is ranked 5th in the league and (NYR Game Notes):
- The Rangers are 6-for-18 (33.3%) over the last six games and 9-for-29 (31.0%) over the last nine games.
- New York has tallied a power play goal in five of the last nine games and in 10 of 20 games this season.
Adam Rotter: The Rangers PP, which was converting at a very high rate prior to Wednesday, has looked pretty off and discombobulated in the past two games. They won't score on the PP in every game but in the past two games they have struggled getting into the zone or setting up. It's one thing when the PP creates chances but doesn't score and it's another when the PP can't even put forth a real effort to score. Hopefully this is just a blip and the Rangers can get back to scoring, or at least setting up to put them in a position to score. If not then the Rangers will have to see how they are being stopped and adjust.
