Ryan McDonagh book-ended the Rangers' scoring with a goal and an assist in a big 6-3 win over the Avalanche.

The Captain began the opening tally by intercepting an Avalanche clearing attempt by the red line and immediately feeding Kevin Hayes by the offensive blue line. Hayes fed Dan Boyle who did the rest. McDonagh would later pick off a lead pass and score into the empty net, on the power play, to seal the Rangers' victory. He now has five goals and 20 points through 42 games this season, two goals and nine points of which have come with the man advantage.

Ryan McDonagh popped a power play goal, and an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Panthers.

McDonagh looked like his old self again, or for Rangers fans, like Brian Leetch 2.0, as he was highly involved in all three zones. The assist made it 2-0 early in the second when the Captain threw it off Al Montoya's far pillow for Derrick Brassard. The goal though was a straight slapper from the point through traffic. He has 13 points, seven on the power play, through 24 games.

Ryan McDonagh scored a goal in the Rangers' 1-0 win over Carolina.

McDonagh's first period goal held for the rest of the game. The low score is a little surprising considering both team's had their backup goaltenders in. McDonagh has two goals and 10 points in 20 games this season. Derek Stepan and Mats Zuccarello picked up the assists on the goal. The Rangers have now won six games in a row.

Ryan McDonagh has struggled since returning from a shoulder injury on Nov. 28.

"He and I expect a lot more," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. "We've all seen Ryan play and the type of hockey that he can play – assertive, strong one on one, not casual going back for the pucks but going back for the pucks quickly, gaining the first forechecker, getting on the hands of the forwards, joining the rush when the opportunity is there." Fantasy owners are likely content with McDonagh's recent play though as he's recorded an assist in each of his three games since returning. He has six points in 13 games this season.

New York Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh may begin skating with teammates as soon as next week.

That's the next step in his progression from a shoulder injury. It's been a tough start to the 2014-15 season for McDonagh, but he has potential to be a nice mid-level fantasy blueliner, at least when he's healthy.

Ryan McDonagh (shoulder) skated on his own again Wednesday.

Ryan McDonagh skated on Tuesday for the first time since separating his shoulder.

McDonagh was initially projected to miss four weeks and he's now two weeks into that timetable. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault didn't offer an updated projection so for now we're still tentatively looking for McDonagh to come back towards the end of this month or in early December.

Ryan McDonagh (separated shoulder) is still not back on skates.

McDonagh was injured two weeks ago and while the original estimate for his return was three-four weeks, the feeling at the time was that it could be longer. Well, it's looking like it could be longer. Stay tuned as the talented blueliner had three assists in 10 games before the injury.

The New York Rangers estimate that Ryan McDonagh will be out three-to-four weeks, although the feeling is that it could be longer.

The word "hope" was thrown around. McDonagh's off to a somewhat disappointing start with zero goals and three assists in 10 gmaes, although him time on ice (23:33 per game) gave the impression that he might be able to snap out of it. This is a tough blow to a Rangers blueline that's now low on offensive talent.
