Ryan McDonagh picked up the 200th point of his career during Sunday's 4-3 win over the Flames.

The assist he picked up was the 28th of the season, leaving him one shy of matching his career high set in 2013-14. McDonagh has 30 points in 51 games this season.

A win is a win is a win, and so is a million dollar check.

The Rangers' captain Ryan McDonagh was the only Metropolitan player not to get on the score sheet during their two victories. But as he goes home with a share of the million dollar prize and a lifetime of memories, hopefully he won't be haunted too much by his lack of scoring during Sunday's 4-3 All-Star championship victory over the Pacific.

Ryan McDonagh was the only Metropolitan division player not to score during Sunday's 10-6 win over the Atlantic.

That's impressive given he started the match with Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby. Fortunately the Rangers' captain will get a second game to light the lamp with as they face the Pacific in the championship.

Ryan McDonagh comes into the All-Star break with two goals and 28 points.

The defenseman has been terrific this season and coach Alain Vigneault credits it to his being healthy coming into the season. "I would say this year would probably be a continuation of the first year," Vigneault said who started coaching the Rangers in 2013-14. "His first year I thought he really came into his own offensively. He was carrying the puck, making plays, making plays that led to opportunities and goals. This year he came in healthy. He was a good player at the (World Cup of Hockey,) and he’s come in and he’s led this group by the way he conducts himself. Very good leader, very good voice in the room and that’s what we need from him as our top defenseman. That’s what we need from our captain."

Ryan McDonagh welcomed his his new daughter, Falan Erin, into the world late Monday.

He will be in the lineup Wednesday night for the first time since her birth. Coach Alain Vigneault has been thoroughly satisfied with McDonagh's play so far this season. "He feels strong, played 30 minutes one game and 27 in another," said the Rangers bench boss. "He's skating away from the other team's forecheck, finding the open lanes and open personnel, and any time he's had the opportunity to support the attack, he jumps in and that's what we need from him." McDonagh got on the scoresheet for the first time this season on Monday against San Jose with two assists.

Ryan McDonagh scored in Team USA's 4-3 loss to the Czech Republic on Thursday night.

What an embarrassing display of hockey for Team USA throughout this tournament. They exit the World Cup having scored just five goals and finishing with a 0-3 record. McDonagh finishes the tournament as his team's leading goal scorer (two goals), while big names like Patrick Kane, Max Pacioretty, Blake Wheeler, Zach Parise and Blake Wheeler didn't find the back of the net at all in the tournament. It's back to the drawing board for USA Hockey.

Ryan McDonagh scored in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to Team Canada at the World Cup of Hockey.

McDonagh opened the scoring just 4:22 into the game, but it was all Team Canada after that. It's a disappointing performance from Team USA, after head coach John Tortorella called this their "championship game" earlier this week. The Americans have one game left against the Czech Republic, but regardless of the outcome, they won't be advancing to the semi-final. T.J. Oshie also scored for the USA in this one.
