05/12/2013 19:17 Rangers ride Brassard goal, Lundqvist to Monday Game 7
Henrik Lundqvist stopped 27 shots in earning his seventh NHL playoff shutout, and Derick Brassard scored a second-period goal for the New York Rangers, who stayed alive with a 1-0 victory over the Washington Capitals on Sunday that forced a Game 7 in the first-round series.
After posting a solid season of 41 goals and 35 assists, Marian Gaborik underwent offseason shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder and could be out until early December. The 30-year-old former first-round pick is a great offensive anchor for any roster with his point-per-game production, but the uncertainty surrounding his shoulder will drag his value down a bit in the 2012-13 season. If he does fall in drafts, fantasy owners would be wise to snag the sniper with a mid-round pick and stash him on the IR until he's ready to contribute with early-round production. Gaborik is one of the NHL's elite offensive talents, but his name has always been adorned with the dreaded "when healthy" caveat. (Updated 8/14/12)
