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.

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 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.
