Pavel Buchnevich has been playing very well alongside Chris Kreider and Mika Zibanejad.
Buchnevich rejoined the Ranger lineup for Game 4, replacing the physical Tanner Glass, and has meshed well with Kreider and Zibanejad, who he had had some success with during the regular season. Ranger coach Alain Vigneault seems happy with this line's work the past two games. "Putting Pavel in the last couple games has permitted us to continue to be physical, but maybe have just a little more skill on the ice," Vigneault said. "It’s worked out for us so far." We expect that this line will remain intact for Saturday's contest. Apr 22 - 7:56 AM

He's not exactly 100% healthy either, as he indicated to reporter Steve Zipay that he's "so-so" after sliding into the boards in practice the other day. With two more games coming up this weekend in California, Tanner Glass will step into the lineup against the Islanders tonight.

Pavel Buchnevich recorded his 20th point in 35 games.

Among rookies Buchnevich ranks 16th in terms of points per game with his pace of 0.57, though he jumps up to the 10th spot if you filter out all rookies that have participated in less than 15 contests. Among rookies that have played in at least 15 games, he also ranks fifth with a 15.4 shooting percentage (eight goals on 52 shots). There's so many great rookies this season so Buchnevich's efforts have been sort of secondary in that regard, but he is nevertheless having a solid debut.

Rangers coach Alain Vigneault liked what he saw from Pavel Buchnevich when he was united with Jimmy Vesey and Oscar Lindberg on Sunday.

Buchnevich registered an assist in that game. "He played well the last game," Vigneault said. "There’s a little consistency issue, but you could say the same thing for all players at some point. Some players have earned a little bit more rope. In Pavel’s case, he’s a young player and he needs to play. He’s learning the game. Every time he comes back, he seems to understand a little bit more. He’s a good player and we need to make sure we make this work." The Rangers bench boss plans to use that line again on Tuesday.
