Mats Zuccarello scored his third goal of the month in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Capitals.

The veteran winger now has five months in eight games in February, which is about as good a rate as one can hope for from a non-elite. He's now up to 12 goals and 43 points in 58 games this season.

Rick Nash is picking his pace back up.

It was a beauty too, as he won an offensive zone draw forward in a set play between he, Chris Kreider and the eventual goal scorer Mats Zuccarello. Zibanejad now has 15 assists and 22 points in 33 games this season.
Feb 19 - 3:34 PM

Ryan McDonagh snapped his 21-game goal drought during Sunday's 2-1 win over the Capitals.

The Captain picked up a dozen helpers in that span, so it's not as though he's been unable to contribute to the Rangers' success. He also blocked five shots in the game. For the season McDonagh has three goals and 33 points.

Henrik Lundqvist out-dueled Philipp Grubauer in Sunday's matinee.

The King stopped 31 of 32 shots, felled only on the power play by Alex Ovechkin in the 2-1 victory over the Capitals. He's now 27-14-1 on the season with the victory.
Feb 19 - 3:29 PM

Brandon Pirri continues to ride the pine as he is scratched against the Capitals on Sunday.

Pirri has yet to suit up this month, a span of seven games. Normally a fixture on the power play, it would seem as though coach Alain Vigneault is more interested in giving others a chance. He has eight goals and 16 points through 48 games.

"To have your sweater retired is the greatest honor a player can receive," Ratelle said. "You can’t ask for more than that." Ratelle, who was included in the NHL's Top-100 players, was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1985 after 20 sterling years with New York and Boston from 1960-61 to 1980-81. He scored 491 goals and 1,267 points in 1,281 games in his career, including 336 goals and 817 points in 862 games over 16 seasons with the Rangers. Though he never lifted Lord Stanley's cup, he did score 32 goals and 98 points in 123 career playoff games. He also received the Bill Masterton and Ted Lindsay along with a pair of Lady Byng trophies, along with five all-star selections.

Vesey's now found the back of the net in consecutive games for the first time since Oct. 30-Nov. 1. His marker in the third period cut the Islanders' lead to 3-2, but that's as close as the Rangers would come to tying it up. Vesey has scored 14 goals and eight assists in 2016-17.
