Alain Vigneault was asked on Monday about the struggles of the PP recently and whether he has considered putting Brandon Pirri back into the lineup.
Pirri has been a healthy scratch for the past 8 games and in that time the Rangers are 3 for 20.
Vigneault said that he has talked with Pirri as well as his staff about bringing Pirri back into the lineup but added that the Rangers aren't getting a lot of PPs right now.
In the 8 games since Pirri has been scratched the Rangers have been averaging 2.5 PPs per game.
He added that the Rangers moved the puck better against the Capitals, were hungrier to loose pucks and "way more effective."
He added and noted that "you could feel the momentum" when Mika Zibanejad scored on the PP on a goal that was correctly determined to be offside.
2 of Pirri's 3 goals in the past 28 games came on the PP.
