Derek Stepan scored what ended up being the game-winner as the New York Rangers beat the Los Angeles Kings 3-0 on Saturday.

It's his second GWG of 2016-17 and 14th goal overall, also giving him 50 points in 75 games. While he's professed disappointment with his goal-scoring after setting a career-high with 22 last season, he's more or less in keeping with his usual totals and hits 50 points for the fourth consecutive season.

The Los Angeles Kings fired plenty of pucks at Antti Raanta, but he couldn't be beaten as the New York Rangers won 3-0 on Saturday.

Raanta made 30 saves for his fourth shutout of 2016-17. He bumps his record to 16-8-2 on the season. He continues to build a case that he's one of the best options in net among NHL backups.

Adam Clendening, Matt Puempel, Brandon Pirri, and Tanner Glass are projected to be scratched from Saturday night’s contest against the LA Kings.

In 29 games this season, Clendening has only 11 points with two of them coming on the strength of goals. Puempel has scored six goals, but has fewer overall points with eight in 36 games.
Mar 25 - 10:27 PM

Antti Raanta is expected to start on Saturday.

Henrik Lundqvist will then play between the pipes on Sunday. Raanta has a 2.35 GAA and .919 save percentage in 29 games in 2016-17.

Now over his hip injury, Henrik Lundqvist thinks it will take him some time to get back into the swing of things.

Lundqvist last played on March 7. "I feel good, but when you come back, you can’t expect to feel perfect right away," Lundqvist said. "I’ll focus on the little things and build game-by-game and grow my confidence. It’s a matter of feel." He's projected to be the backup goaltender on Saturday and then get the start Sunday. There should be enough time left for him to get comfortable again before the playoffs start.

Dan Girardi (ankle) will rejoin the Rangers on Saturday.

Girardi was sidelined for about a month. Now that he's healthy again, he's projected to play alongside Ryan McDonagh.
Mar 24 - 6:44 PM

Henrik Lundqvist (hip) plans to start on Sunday.

Goaltender Magnus Hellberg was returned to the minors on Thursday, so Lundqvist will likely serve as the backup netminder on Saturday before making his first start back. Lundqvist last played on March 7.

Ty Ronning signed an ATO with AHL Hartford on Thursday.

The 19-year-old has concluded four seasons with WHL Vancouver, including having scored 56 goals and 112 points over his last two campaigns.
Mar 23 - 6:05 PM

Chris Nell signed a deal with the New York Rangers on Thursday.

Details to come. The 22-year-old undrafted netminder is coming off his third season with Bowling Green University. He had a 17-14-2 record with a .916 save percentage and a 2.15 GAA in 2016-17.
Mar 23 - 3:44 PM

Magnus Hellberg was returned to AHL Hartford on Thursday.

The 25-year-old netminder didn't see any time with the Rangers during his latest stint. In 31 games this season with the Wolf Pack, Hellberg has posted an 11-11-2 record with a .902 save percentage and a 2.91 GAA.
Mar 23 - 1:14 PM

Mats Zuccarello scored his 15th goal of the season on Wednesday.

This is the fourth straight season that Zuccarello has recorded at least 15 goals, though he'll almost certainly finish significantly below his 2015-16 total of 26 markers. At any rate, he's been hot as the season's nears its end as he has recorded at least a point in five of his last six contests.
Mar 23 - 10:58 AM

Oscar Lindberg registered an assist in the Rangers' 3-2 loss to the Islanders on Wednesday.

That puts Lindberg on a three-game point streak. He has seven goals and 19 points in 57 contests this season.
Mar 23 - 10:55 AM

Antti Raanta allowed three goals on 28 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the New York Islanders.

The Rangers held a 2-1 lead going into the third period, but back-to-back goals by forwards Nikolay Kulemin and Andrew Ladd put the Isles ahead. The Rangers aren't in any danger of missing the playoffs, but they've now dropped seven consecutive games at home. Thankfully, it sounds like Henrik Lundqvist is close to returning to action. Raanta has dropped four of his last five games and he's given up three goals or more in five of his last seven contests.
Mar 22 - 11:30 PM

Rick Nash scored his 20th goal of the season in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the New York Islanders.

Nash's goal at the 6:36 mark of the second period gave the Rangers a 2-1 lead, but they watched as the Islanders scored back-to-back in the third period. After going nine games without a goal, Nash has now found the back of the net in back-to-back games. He's up to 35 points in 61 games in 2016-17. The Rangers have now lost seven consecutive games on home ice.
Mar 22 - 11:21 PM

Pavel Buchnevich will be scratched on Wednesday against the Islanders.

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.
