In his return to the Rangers lineup last night Matt Puempel had a goal and played 14:18.
He played 4:06 in the first period, 4:39 in the second and 5:33 in the third.
Puempel was bumped up to play with Derek Stepan and Stepan picked up the primary assist on Puempel's goal.
Alain Vigneault said that he felt Puempel had a good stick and had his legs going on the forecheck and decided to make a switch in the lines.
Puempel said that he felt good last night and had been putting in a lot of work to get ready in the past couple of weeks. (NYR)
