Mats Zuccarello led the way for the Rangers with two goals in their 5-1 win over the Canucks on Saturday night.

The Rangers could use more games like this from the Norwegian winger who is getting scoring-line ice time. Zuccarello has not been as big a factor this season as he was in 2013-14, though there’s plenty of time to change that story line. The goals give him just six on the year, along with 13 points. Ryan McDonagh, J.T. Miller and Marc Staal also scored for New York, which jumped out to a 3-0 lead by 6:46 of the first period. Derick Brassard and Rick Nash chipped in with two assists apiece.

Mats Zuccarello says that he is not letting pending free agency affect his play this season.

Zuccarello is off to a slow start with three goals and eight points in 15 games after a 59 point performance last season. He has been scoring of late with all three goals and seven points in eight games so it appears he is out of his slump although his overall stats are not up to his standards. "I think about it a little bit. It’s hard not to," Zuccarello said about possible free agency. "There are sometimes at night when it enters my mind but I don’t bring it to the rink with me. It’s not something that interferes with my preparation or my game."

Mats Zuccarello and Chris Kreider each tallied a goal and an assist in the Rangers’ 5-4 loss to the Maple Leafs on Saturday night.

With Derek Stepan (an assist in his return) back in the lineup, the Rangers seem to finally have their top-six settled, and it figures to be a dangerous group now with two capable centers. Zuccarello also had a team-high seven shots on goal in the loss, and he now has two goals and six points this season. Rick Nash and Carl Hagelin scored the other markers for New York.

Mats Zuccarello is in a terrible slump with only one assist this season.

Zuccarello had a career year last season with 19 goals and 59 points but most people did not think he would repeat it this season. "I obviously want to contribute for the team," Zuccarello said. "It’s hard not to think about it. I think I just have to stay positive. Nothing’s going to change if you think negative. [But] it’s a little bit harder to sleep at night." Zuccarello is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent after this season and he needs to pick up his game if he hopes to get a mega contract.
