My 3 Rangers stars

  1. Artemi Panarin was a magician yet again with his four assists.  It’s hard to imagine, but he has elevated his game even more and his first 100 point season is well within reach. It’s unusual for a player to not get the top star with a hat trick, but this was a no brainer.
  2. Andrew Copp was the chief beneficiary of Panarin’s genius, but he has to get credit for getting to the right place to score those three goals.
  3. Adam Fox had yet another excellent game, controlling the zone entries and setting up three goals.

The official 3 stars

  1. Artemi Panarin
  2. Andrew Copp
  3. Adam Fox

What’s next

The Rangers have a nationally televised game on Saturday in Boston, starting at 3pm and on ABC.  They then have two days off to prepare for the big game versus Carolina. The Hurricanes have back-to-back games on the road against the Islanders and Devils so they won’t be as well rested as the Rangers.
