In the first period of the first preseason game of the season for the New York Rangers, young newcomer Mika Zibanejad tallies a PP goal.

When preseason games are discussed, many focal points need to be shoved to the forefront. This sentiment is especially the case for the NHL, a league that seemingly has no offseason.

For the New York Rangers, as they get their preseason schedule underway on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden against the rival Islanders, a huge storyline was the play of the youngsters.

To be more precise, the focus was firmly planted on Mika Zibanejad and Pavel Buchnevich. Those two youngsters are playing on a line with Chris Kreider and cashed in immediately once given a power play chance:

The puck movement was superb on this power play, something that hasn’t been the case under Alain Vigneault in recent years.

The score is currently 2-1 Blueshirts as we near the midway point of the second period.

Hockey is officially back boys and girls.
