With last night's win, the Rangers improved to 13-3-3 against the Islanders in their last 19 matchups.

Staying Out of the Box

The Rangers did not give the Islanders a power play opportunity last night, marking the first time since Jan. 10, 2012 against the Phoenix Coyotes the team was not shorthanded. The last time the Rangers did not surrender a power play against the Islanders was Jan. 7, 1989, during a 5-1 win at Nassau Coliseum.

The Rangers improved to 7-3-1 this season when not allowing a power play goal.

 

Powerful Powerplay

 

The Rangers went 1-for-3 on the power play Thursday against the Islanders, and have recorded a goal with the man advantage in seven of their last 10 games (8-for-34, 23.5 percent). The stretch has helped the Rangers move to No. 22 in the league with the man advantage.
