Player Notes

  • Held off scoresheet in loss
    Fox was held without a point in Wednesday's 3-0 loss to Florida in Game 1 of the series.

    Advice: Fox's 24:56 of ice time was the most of any skater on either side in the contest, but he was unable to help New York's offense in the loss. The 26-year-old had five blocked shots, two shots on goal and a minus-2 rating. It's the fifth consecutive outing that Fox has failed to register a point, a rare occurrence for the star defenseman. The Long Island native has four points (no goals) and a minus-1 rating in 11 contests so far during the playoffs. Rotowire.com Today, 10:58 am
  • Most ice time of any forward
    Panarin didn't register a point in Wednesday's 3-0 loss to the Panthers in Game 1.

    Advice: Panarin was on the ice for almost 25 minutes in Wednesday's loss, but he was unable to provide any offensive production for New York. It's been a tough stretch for the star winger -- over his last four games Panarin only has two helpers and a minus-7 rating. The 32-year-old is up to four goals, seven assists and a minus-5 rating in 11 contests so far this postseason. Panarin and the Rangers will attempt to avoid a two-game deficit in the series when they're back in action for Game 2 on Saturday. Rotowire.com Today, 10:55 am
  • Minus-3 in loss
    Lafreniere was held off the scoresheet in Wednesday's 3-0 loss to Florida in Game 1.

    Advice: Lafreniere has failed to find the scoresheet in three straight outings after registering 10 points over his first eight games of the postseason. The 2020 first-overall pick had three shots on goal, four hits, two blocks and two PIM in 17:23 of ice time. The 22-year-old winger has four goals and six assists with a minus-2 rating in 11 contests so far this postseason. Lafreniere and the Rangers will attempt to even up the series in Game 2 on Saturday night. Rotowire.com Today, 10:50 am
  • Seals win for Florida
    Bennett scored an empty-net goal in Wednesday's 3-0 win over New York in Game 1 of the series.

    Advice: Bennett was held off the scoresheet in consecutive games prior to helping seal the win for Florida in Game 1. He added five shots, three hits and a plus-1 rating in 13:17 of ice time. Bennett's ice time will be something to monitor going forward -- he's currently centering Florida's third line after playing most of the regular season on the second line with Matthew Tkachuk. Bennett is up to five points (three goals) in seven contests so far this postseason. Rotowire.com Today, 10:47 am
  • Two points in win
    Verhaeghe scored a goal and added an assist in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Rangers in Game 1.

    Advice: Verhaeghe had a secondary assist on Matthew Tkachuk's first-period marker before adding an insurance goal late in the third period to put the Panthers up by two. Verhaeghe also had five shots on goal, one hit and a plus-2 rating in 18:29 of ice time. Verhaeghe went six consecutive games without a multi-point effort before registering two points in Wednesday's Game 1 tilt.
