Derek Stepan scored the final Rangers goal Saturday night as they lost 5-4 to the Canadiens.

Stepan’s 10th goal of the season came at the 14:53 mark of the third. It gave the Rangers a little hope after they fell to 5-3 on a flurry of shots in the third. He also had a piece of the first goal of the night at the 12:24 mark of the first, which gives him 33 points for the year. Stepan had three other shots on goal, to provide a decent night for his fantasy owners. This is the fourth time in the past five games that he has made three or more shots on goal.

Derek Stepan has 14 points in his last 13 games.

Stepan's hot streak has come at an important time for the Rangers as they've often been without forwards Rick Nash and Mika Zibanejad over that stretch. Stepan was particularly important on Tuesday when he scored two goals against Ottawa to tie the contest at 3-3, which allowed Nick Holden's third period marker to be the game winner. With those two goals, Stepan is up to nine markers and 28 points in 37 games.

Look for Derek Stepan and Mats Zuccarello to play on the same line to start the season.

The two have looked very good together in pre-season action to date. They will be joined by either Rick Nash or Jimmy Vesey to form a potentially dynamic scoring line. Look for Stepan to register between 60-65 points this season.

"Lots of talk" that Rangers general manager Jeff Gorton is "listening" on deals for center Derek Stepan, according to the Ottawa Sun’s Bruce Garrioch.

Stepan just played the first year of a six-year, $39 million contract, recording 22 goals and 53 points in his age-25 season. Garrioch says that "it sounds like" Gorton has been "busy working the phones," which makes sense, considering this group showed its warts this past season. But is Stepan the guy to move?

Derek Stepan passed his concussion protocol after he was hit from behind by Ben Lovejoy Saturday.

The incident happened with more than eight minutes to go in the third period and while Stepan did not return to the game, he was back on the bench when the game ended. "I'm fine," Stepan said. "We just went through the protocol just to make sure everything was good and I was back on the bench. But we have to make sure we're doing the right things and the training staff has to make sure they're doing the right things." Stepan is expected to be ready to go for Game 3.
