Brandon Mashinter logged 5:55 of ice time in his Rangers debut Tuesday night, and became the ninth player to make their Rangers debut this season. Mashinter joins Jeff Halpern, Rick Nash, Taylor Pyatt, Brandon Segal, Arron Asham, Benn Ferriero, Darroll Powe and J.T. Miller. Although he played with the Rangers during last year's playoffs, Chris Kreider also made his regular season debut this season.
PK Stays Perfect
The Rangers have not allowed a powerplay goal in their last six games, going a perfect 17-for-17 during that span. The Rangers now have the seventh-best penalty kill in the NHL, operating at 84.5 percent.
Shoot the Puck!
According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the teams' combined eight shots in the first period was the fewest the Rangers and an opponent finished a period with since Feb 27, 2012 against the New Jersey Devils. Oddly enough, that game had two periods worth a combined eight shots each.
