Jesper Fast is feeling better heading into Game 6.

It's believed that he was feeling under the weather on Sunday, which kept him out for the final 10:22 of the third period. "I didn't have my best game," Fast said of Game 5. "Other guys were stepping up so I've just got to re-focus and do better." He is projected to play with Chris Kreider and Derek Stepan on Tuesday night.

Jesper Fast was a force for the Rangers in Game 3 on Wednesday night, scoring twice in his first career multi-goal game.

Fast had perhaps his best career performance, now 87 total games old. His first goal was off a sweet forehand-backhand breakaway finish to make it 2-0 Rangers midway through the first period. But it was his second tally that loomed large, as he broke Tampa's momentum of three straight goals just 29 seconds after Alex Killorn made it 4-3 late in the second period. Fast also drew a tripping penalty on Andrej Sustr early in the third. Fast now has three goals and six points in 15 games this postseason.

Rangers winger Jesper Fast is excelling on the second line in the playoffs.

Fast has been a terrific addition on the second line as he is playing with Chris Kreider and Derek Stepan. His two-way play has made him one of the better Ranger players in the playoffs. "I feel like I have more confidence out there," Fast said. "I feel better on the ice. I feel stronger. The coach giving me trust out there and putting me in these situations helps me a lot. I’m just trying to make the best of it." Fast has a goal and four points in 13 games, all against Washington in the second round.

Jesper Fast scored a goal in the Rangers' 3-2 shootout win versus Carolina.

Jesper Fast (knee) will return to the Rangers lineup Monday night against the Predators.

Fast has been out since February 7th due to a knee injury but will be back in the lineup Monday night when the Rangers host Nashville. Fast has limited fantasy value but is an underrated real-life hockey player and will add a lot of value to the Rangers bottom six forwards. He has three goals and six assists in 37 games this year. Newly acquired James Sheppard will not be able to dress Monday so the lineup remains unchanged except for Fast being inserted.
