Oh, Baby!

Let’s take a look at some of last week’s highlights.

Michael Grabner scores against the Blue Jackets.

The Rangers come back to defeat the Blue Jackets on Monday night.

Pavel Buchnevich goes around Boston’s Zdeno Chara to score.

Jimmy Vesey scores two goals in 29 seconds against Tuukka Rask.

On Veterans Day, Rangers take a moment to remember the Veterans of our great country.

Buchnevich scores off of a great pass from Kevin Shattenkirk.

It’s A Power Play Goal!

The Rangers power play has been the best part of this six-game winning streak. The team is ranked fourth in the National Hockey League with the man advantage.

Who’s Hot

Kevin Shattenkirk is on fire right now. He is currently on a seven-game point scoring streak. He has recorded three goals, seven assists for 10 points in this streak, along with one power play goal and three assists with the team on the man advantage.

Who’s Not

The only player who is not playing well right now and the is Brendan Smith. That’s because Smith isn’t playing as he has been scratched for the last five games.

Most Interesting Play

The most interesting play has to be when Jimmy Vesey was kicked in the mouth during the Edmonton Oiler game on Saturday at MSG.

Vesey would leave the game for the rest of the second period but would return to play the third period with a full shield.

It would later be reported that Vesey would have some teeth implanted in his bottom lip. Vesey posted some pictures of his injury which was seen all over social media throughout the night.
