Derek Stepan has become a fixture in the Rangers Top 5 Plays of the Week this season, and this current collection is no exception. Sunday afternoon at Madison Square Garden, Stepan perfectly timed his skate into the slot and expertly deflected Ryan McDonagh's left-point pass/shot past Martin Brodeur at the 12-minute mark of the first period to give the Rangers a 2-0 lead at the time, en-route to a 4-1 victory. Stepan now is second on the team with 16 goals this season, in 45 game splayed. Incredibly he is just five goals shy of his career high, established over a full 82 games back in his rookie season of 2010-11.
