Mika Zibanejad (concussion) skated again on Tuesday.

Zibanejad won't travel with the team for Wednesday's game against Ottawa. He saw some time on the power play during Tuesday's session, but it's possible he will be more involved during Thursday's skate. Zibanejad appears to be moving in the right direction.

Ondrej Pavelec stopped 44 of 45 shots in Monday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Dallas Stars.

It's an unfortunate result for the Rangers backup goalie, as he turned in a pretty strong performance on Monday. Pavelec came up with some timely saves to keep his team in the game. He now has a 2-4-1 record with a 3.04 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage this season.

Rick Nash found the back of the net in Monday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Dallas Stars.

Nash's goal tied the game at one with under four minutes remaining in regulation time. It also put an end to his 10-game goalless drought. The Rangers forward now has eight goals and eight assists in 30 games. He's on pace to surpass the 20-goal mark, but his season has been pretty disappointing.
Dec 11 - 10:38 PM

Steven Kampfer will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the Dallas Stars.

The 29-year-old has no goals, one assist and a minus-3 rating in 13 games this season. He's now been scratched in five straight games.

Mika Zibanejad (concussion) skated with his teammates on Monday morning.

Zibanejad skated as a spare defenseman during the session. Coach Alain Vigneault said the forward has not been cleared for contact yet. Zibanejad still needs at least one full practice before he can return to action.
Dec 11 - 3:56 PM

Ondrej Pavelec will be between the pipes Monday when the Rangers host Dallas.

Pavelec blocked 41 of 44 shots in a 4-3 win against Pittsburgh last Tuesday to improve his record to 2-4-0 on the season. He also owns a 3.45 goals-against average and .899 save percentage in seven appearances. This will be his first home start since Oct. 26.

Jesper Fast and Jimmy Vesey switched lines on Saturday and it paid off for both as each scored in the Rangers' 5-2 win over New Jersey.

Fast moved up to the Rick Nash-Kevin Hayes line while Vesey played alongside Boo Nieves and Paul Carey. Fast has three goals in three straight games and six in his last eight as he now has seven goals and 14 points in 24 games. He is becoming fantasy-relevant.

Mika Zibanejad (concussion) will not play on Monday but has skated in three of the last four days.

Coach Alain Vigneault said that Zibanejad will need at least one practice so that eliminates him from the Monday game against Dallas. The Swede has missed the last five games but has 11 goals and 22 points in 22 games this season. Stay tuned.
Dec 10 - 8:42 AM

Henrik Lundqvist stopped 26 of the 28 shots he faced on Saturday night as the New York Rangers defeated the New Jersey Devils 5-2.

Lundqvist seems to be turning a corner after a rough start to the season. With the win, he improves to 14-7-2 with a 2.69 goals-against average and a .916 save percentage. The Rangers have now won seven out of their last 10 and sit just a point out of the playoff picture.
Dec 9 - 10:38 PM

Mats Zuccarello scored two goals as the New York Rangers defeated the New Jersey Devils 5-2 on Saturday night.

Zuccarello scored his team's third and fourth goals, potting what proved to be the game-winner 16 minutes into the second period. The winger now has seven goals and 24 points in 29 games so far this season. It is his second two-point performance in his last three games.
Dec 9 - 10:12 PM

Steven Kampfer will be a healthy scratch in Saturday's game against the New Jersey Devils.

This will be his fourth consecutive game in the press box. Kampfer has one assist and a minus-3 rating in 13 games this season.
Dec 9 - 6:42 PM

Mika Zibanejad (concussion) has been making some progress, according to coach Alain Vigneault.

Zibanejad has skated on his own in three of the last four days and he had a solid session on Saturday. He hasn't been cleared to practice yet or take contact, so he still has some work to do before he is ready to return to action.
Dec 9 - 5:09 PM

Henrik Lundqvist will start again for the Rangers on Saturday versus New Jersey.

Lundqvist stopped 36 of 40 shots in a 4-2 loss to Washington on Friday night. He owns a 13-7-2 record with a 2.72 goals-against average and .916 save percentage this season.
Dec 9 - 5:05 PM

Mika Zibanejad will miss his fifth consecutive game due to post-concussion symptoms as he will not be in the lineup against the Devils Saturday night.

Zibanejad is making slow progress in his recovery from a concussion he sustained on November 24th. Although he is riding a stationary bike, he will not be able to return to action until he gets on the ice, skates with his teammates and takes contact. There is no timetable for his return.
