The New York Rangers are not at all happy with their power play in the playoffs.
The Rangers scored once in seven chances on Saturday when Derick Brassard found the back of the net but other than that, they have been weak with the man-advantage. "My comment on the power play is we have a group of guys that have frustrated themselves, and we just have to go out and get some good mojo going and find a way to pop a couple in a relax a little bit on it," Derek Stepan said. "We've got a lot of guys who are gripping the stick, and there’s no need for that, especially now. We need to get some positive energy on it, zip it around, and make some plays." Apr 19 - 8:11 AM

Derick Brassard potted a goal in the Rangers’ 4-3 loss against the Penguins in Game 2 of their first-round series Saturday night.

Brassard was one of the Rangers’ better forwards, which actually doesn’t say much considering they really didn’t sustain much offense until the third period. Brassard’s goal came on the power play early in that frame, the only time in seven tries the Rangers converted with the man advantage. Derek Stepan, who also had an assist, and Martin St. Louis picked up the other markers.

Derick Brassard confirmed that he'll be able to play for the New York Rangers against the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday.

Derick Brassard (mumps) is projected to play on Saturday.

Brassard will take part in the Saturday morning skate before a final determination is made though. If Brassard is available, he will be on a line with Rick Nash and Mats Zuccarello, which means J.T. Miller will be playing a reduced role.

Derick Brassard (mumps) took part in Friday's practice.

Brassard was officially diagnosed with the illness on Wednesday, but he is presumably past the contagious phase. He skated on a line with Rick Nash and Mats Zuccarello. It's not clear if he'll play on Saturday, but if he does, expect it to be on that line. That would be bad news for J.T. Miller as he has been playing with Nash and Zuccarello.
Fri, Dec 19, 2014 12:40:00 PM

Derick Brassard now officially has the mumps.

The Rangers had already been working under the assumption that Brassard was battling the mumps, but they didn't get confirmation until Wednesday. Rangers forward Tanner Glass previously missed four games due to the disease. Brassard has missed two contests so far.
