No. 3: Mats Zuccarello (3G, 1A, 4Pts)


Forward Mats Zuccarello had his strongest week since returning to the Rangers late last month. Since his return, Zuccarello has infused the Rangers with another offensive threat in the lineup and on the power play, and he brings a set of skills — and hands — that has greatly improved the Blueshirts in the offensive zone. Zuccarello scored his first goal of the season Tuesday in Philadelphia and followed it up with two more in the Blueshirts' pounding of the Panthers Thursday night. The Norwegian finished his week with an assist on Friday in the team's 8-4 win over the Sabres. Mats has given the Rangers — and their fans — everything they hoped for in his return.
