Mats Zuccarello lifted his point streak to five games thanks to the game winning goal he set up to beat Detroit on Sunday in overtime, 1-0.

Zuccarello stared down Jared Coreau as he bought time for JT Miller to catch up on the wing before making a sweet dish leading to the goal. He now has seven helpers during the streak, giving him 27 overall assists and 37 overall points.

Thanks to the helper he picked up in Sunday's 1-0 overtime win over the Red Wings, rookie Brady Skjei has reached another milestone.

Make it 18 helpers and 20 points for him through 46 games this season. Skjei has quietly put together a remarkably solid rookie campaign.

Henrik Lundqvist picked up his second shutout of the season as the Rangers beat the Red Wings 1-0 in overtime on Sunday.

The King was a perfect 21 for 21, including the two shots asked of him while on special teams. He improves to 20-12-1 on the season and is now up to 61 career shutouts.
Jan 22 - 3:22 PM

Kevin Hayes suffered a lower body injury during the second period of Sunday's matinee with the Red Wings.

Hayes did not factor much on to the score sheet before departing. Consider him day-to-day for now. The Rangers will host LA on Monday and Philadelphia on Wednesday before the All-Star break kicks in on Friday.

Michael Grabner leads the NHL in even strength goals with 20.

Grabner scored shorthanded against the Leafs Thursday for his first non-even strength goal and has 21 on the season. Grabner played for Toronto last season and coach Mike Babcock praised the winger who only scored nine times for him. "He was on his way," Babcock said. "He had so many chances. He was snakebitten, but he got his confidence back. Grabs was a guy we really liked here. He did a real good job for us. We would’ve loved to have kept him, but we felt with the wingers we had coming, one of these young kids wouldn’t have got any ice time." He certainly has benefited the Rangers this season. Grabner is a must start, even if he sees little, if any, power play time.

The Rangers will stay with Henrik Lundqvist against Detroit on Sunday.

The King has actually been much better on the road this season. He's posted a 10-6 record with a .916 save percentage and a 2.40 GAA thus far.

Matt Puempel (concussion) is expected to take part in Saturday's practice.

He has missed seven straight games because of a concussion he sustained on Dec. 31 against Colorado. Puempel suffered two concussions in December, but he appears to be making some progress.

Kevin Hayes recorded a pair of assists in a 5-2 win against Toronto Thursday night.

That was Hayes' second multi-point game in the span of three contests. He's up to 13 goals and 35 points in 46 contests this season. That puts him just 10 points shy of his career high.

J.T. Miller scored a goal in the Rangers' 5-2 win over Toronto.

Earning a 5-2 victory over Toronto on Thursday was particularly important to Henrik Lundqvist after his recent struggles.

Lundqvist had allowed 16 goals in the span of seven periods before Thursday's contest. "I think this was a big game for me," Lundqvist said following the Rangers' victory. "Sometimes a win means a little bit more and you enjoy it a little bit extra." We'll see if Lundqvist can build on that, but this has also been a rough season for him overall. He has a 19-12-1 record, 2.86 GAA, and .902 save percentage in 33 contests this season.

Henrik Lundqvist turned aside 23 of 25 shots in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

It was a nice bounce back performance after he allowed seven goals in Tuesday's loss to the Dallas Stars. The win also snaps his personal three-game losing streak. He has a 19-12-1 record with a 2.86 goals-against-average and a .902 save percentage this season. He should be able to improve on those numbers in the second half of the year.

Michael Grabner scored a pair of goals in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Grabner scored both of his goals in the final 5:03 of the game, as his shorthanded goal gave New York a 4-2 lead and his empty netter made it 5-2. Grabner now has nine points in his last six games and he's up 21 goals and eight assists in 45 games this season. Brady Skjei, Pavel Buchnevich and J.T. Miller also scored for the Rangers tonight.
Jan 19 - 11:45 PM

The Rangers will stick with Henrik Lundqvist on Thursday.

Lundqvist has surrendered 16 goals in his last seven periods and has struggled overall this season. That said, backup Antti Raanta is sidelined so this isn't an ideal time for the Rangers to give Lundqvist a breather.
