The Sabres' captain seems to be playing in his final season in Buffalo
Jack Eichel played against his potential future team in his potential future home on Tuesday night against the Rangers at the Garden. Everything points to Eichel becoming a Ranger sometime in the next five months.
Rangers are now without three forwards and two defenseman for the foreseeable future
It was always going to be hard for the Rangers to earn a postseason berth in the deepest division with the youngest roster in the league. With their current roster, I don’t know how they reach the playoffs.
Rangers ended their losing streak, but still only have six goals in 15 periods
The Rangers won in Philadelphia, but did everything they could to lose, like not scoring on a penalty shot or not scoring during two minutes of a 5-on-3 or not scoring during an overtime power play or by allowing the game-tying goal with 1:14 left in regulation.
