Rangers: New York broke through on the power play last night, scoring twice in the first period against the Panthers---the team's first power play goals in five games. Since April 3rd the Rangers have three multiple power play goal games, after having only one previously in the first 36 games of the season. Ryan Callahan still leads the team with five power play goals this season, and he has seven power play points---third on the team trailing only Derek Stepan (10) and Rick Nash (9). Three of Nash's team-best 18 goals have been scored on the power play after he netted one with the man advantage last night.

 

Sabres: After going seven games without scoring a power play goal, Buffalo has three in its last two games. The Sabres scored both of their goals through 65 minutes against Boston Wednesday on the power play after going 1-for-3 with the man advantage in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Lightning. Wednesday's multiple power play goal output was Buffalo's first this season since they scored three power plays goals on opening night against the Flyers.
