Marc Staal, scorer of goals.

Staal picked up his third goal of the season during Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Islanders. It was his second goal in three games. He has now just 37 career markers, so we'd just enjoy this mini-streak for what it is.

Marc Staal snapped home his second goal of the season during Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Sabres.

The tally brings his career total up to 36, well below what was expected of him coming out of junior. Be that as it may, the Rangers aren't complaining. Staal now has five points in 25 games this season.

The New York Rangers need to improve in front of Henrik Lundqvist.

The Rangers gave up a lot of shots last season as Lundqvist faced an NHL high 1944 shots on goal. "Definitely a big part," Marc Staal said when asked if team-wide defensive improvement is the key in determining where the team finishes. "You don’t win in this league if you’re not sound in your own zone and you’re taking care of the puck. It’s something as a group we need to be good at early and continue to improve and talk about as a team as the year goes on. We’re gonna have some ups and downs this year, but it’s about working in the right direction and obviously improving every day. I think we’re capable of that here." Staal has no fantasy value as he had only 15 points in 77 games last season.

The New York Daily News reported that GM Jeff Gorton was shopping defensemen Marc Staal and Dan Girardi.

It was just to see if there was any interest as both players have no-movement clauses in their contracts. It never got to that stage as both are still members of the Rangers.

Marc Staal is going into the summer relatively healthy, which is unusual for him.

"It’s probably my first time in five or six years in which I’ll go into the summer with nothing, which is nice," Staal said. "I’m looking forward to getting three or four months (of work) in before the season starts, which has been very rare for me." Hopefully all that extra time training without complication will pay dividends next season. He finished the 2015-16 campaign with two goals and 15 points in 77 contests.
