Rangers' Brassard: Goals In Three Straight

News: Derick Brassard scored the Rangers' lone regulation goal Thursday, marking the third consecutive game in which he's found twine.
Analysis: Derick Brassard's taken exactly three shots in all three of those games, which isn't a lot, but it's better than the one shot he totaled in the Rangers' first two contests of the year. Expected to fulfill a top-six role all year long, Brassard could be poised to eclipse his season high of 47 points, set in 2010-11 with Columbus.

Rangers' Brassard Bags Goal In Defeat

News: Derick Brassard scored a goal and attempted three shots in Tuesday's loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: Derick Brassard's score gave the Rangers a 2-1 lead in the second period, but the Islanders would respond with five unanswered tallies to salt the game away. The 27-year-old has two goals and a minus-4 rating over four games on the season.

Rangers' Brassard Notches First Goal

News: Derick Brassard scored his first point of the season -- a third-period goal -- in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Passed over in favor of Martin St. Louis for top-line center duties in the wake of Derek Stepan's long-term injury, Derick Brassard has been mostly a disappointment to open the season. Though he's no longer sitting on a bagel in the points category, he's attempted just four shots on goal and currently sits on a minus-4 rating through three games.

Rangers Sign Brassard

News: The Rangers re-signed Derick Brassard to a five-year, $25 million contract extension Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: Derick Brassard filed for salary arbitration with the Rangers earlier in July, but the two sides were able to agree to terms on a new deal without an official hearing. The center racked up 18 goals and 27 assists in 81 games last season, and will be counted on to help fill the hole left after the departure of Brad Richards.

Rangers' Brassard Snaps Drought

News: Derick Brassard collected a goal and an assist in a double overtime loss to Los Angeles in Game 2 on Saturday.
Analysis: Derick Brassard, who also won nearly half of his face-offs, played nearly four minutes of power play time in almost 24-minutes of total ice time. The points also snap a two-game point drought for Brassard who has 11 points in 20 games this post season.

Rangers' Brassard Gets Goal In Return

News: Derick Brassard (undisclosed) potted a goal in his return to the ice for Sunday's Game 4 win over the Canadiens.
Analysis: Derick Brassard had missed the previous two contests after sustaining the injury in Game 1, but skated for an effective 14:37 of ice time Sunday. He should be available in a full capacity for the Rangers for the remainder of the series.

Rangers' Brassard (Undisclosed) Says He'll Play

News: Derick Brassard (undisclosed) said on Saturday that he will play in Game 4, Pat Leonard of New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Derick Brassard left Game 1 with an undisclosed injury and missed the last two games because of it. It appears he is ready to return and will be needed with the Rangers possibly missing both Derek Stepan and Daniel Carcillo on Sunday, Stepan due to a broken jaw and Carcillo with a likely suspension.

Rangers' Brassard (Undisclosed) Practices Saturday

News: Derick Brassard (undisclosed) was on the ice for Saturday's practice.
Analysis: Derick Brassard has missed the past two games with the undisclosed injury, but appears to be on track for a return in the near future. With Derek Stepan dealing with a broken jaw and Daniel Carcillo likely to face a 10-game suspension, Brassard's return couldn't come sooner for the Rangers. The question is whether he will be available for Game 4 on Sunday or if the Rangers will have to wait a little longer, something that should be cleared up as closer to game time.

Rangers' Brassard (Undisclosed) Out For Game 3

News: Derick Brassard (undisclosed) will not play in Thursday's Game 3, the Rangers' official Twitter account reports.
Analysis: Derick Brassard will miss a second consecutive game after suffering an undisclosed injury during last Saturday's Game 1 versus Montreal. He should be considered day-to-day moving forward.

Rangers' Brassard Likely To Miss Game 3

News: Coach Alain Vigneault would only say that Derick Brassard (undisclosed) is "still day-to-day" after Thursday's morning skate in advance of Game 3 vs. the Canadiens, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Vigneault's words would seem to suggest Derick Brassard will miss his second straight game, but the center's status should be known for certain based on his participation (or lack thereof) during the Rangers' pregame skate.

Rangers' Brassard Practices

News: Derick Brassard (undisclosed) participated in Wednesday's practice, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: It looks like Derick Brassard is feeling better than he was Monday, so there's a good chance he could be in the lineup Thursday. The team is still calling him day-to-day for now, though, so keep an eye out for another update before Game 3.

Rangers' Brassard Out For Monday

News: Derick Brassard (undisclosed) will not play Monday against the Canadiens, Renaud Lavoie of Journal de Montreal reports.
Analysis: Derick Brassard left Saturday's game with an undisclosed injury, and it will cost him a roster spot in Monday's Game 2 as well. There's no word yet on the nature of his injury, so the only thing to do is continue to consider him day-to-day at this point.

Rangers' Brassard Leaves With Apparent Back Injury

News: Derick Brassard left Saturday's Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals with what appeared to be a back injury, Katie Strang of ESPN New York reports.
Analysis: Derick Brassard didn't return to the bench in the second period and with a 4-1 Rangers lead heading into the third, he will likely sit the rest of the game.

Brassard Day-To-Day With Undisclosed Injury

News: Derick Brassard left Saturday's game with an undisclosed injury and is considered day-to-day, Rich Chere of The Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Derick Brassard didn't return to the bench, but with a 4-1 lead heading into the third period, he probably wouldn't have returned either way. His status for Game 2 is uncertain at this point, and should be monitored in the next couple days.

Rangers' Brassard Nets Another

News: Derick Brassard registered a goal in Sunday's 3-1 victory over Pittsburgh in Game 6.
Analysis: That's four points in his last two playoff games. Anything to take away the sting of a shoddy 27-percent on face-offs. The former Blue Jackets forward has four goals, three assists and a plus-2 rating through 13 games played this post season.

Analysis: The first of Derick Brassard's goals held up as the game-winner, as he dived across the Pittsburgh crease to drive home a missed Mats Zuccarello shot to give the Rangers a 2-0 edge. All told, the line of Brassard, Zuccarello and Benoit Pouliot finished with seven points in the dominating 5-1 victory.

Rangers' Brassard Nets Game-Winner

News: Derick Brassard scored an overtime, game-winning goal in a Game 1, 3-2 defeat of Pittsburgh on Friday.
Analysis: It's Derick Brassard's second career game-winner in the playoffs, both having come with the Rangers. Although the former sixth overall pick (2006) had been held to just one assist through the first six games of the postseason, he has a plus-3 rating with a goal and an assist in his last two contests.

Rangers' Brassard To Be Factor Against Pens?

News: Derick Brassard collected a helper in Wednesday's Game 7 win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: After closing out the season with an admirable nine points in the final 12 games of the season, Derick Brassard went cold, accounting for just two points in around 15-minutes of average ice time. However, the Quebec native seems to enjoy battling his team's next round foe, the Penguins (11 points in 10 career games), so perhaps he'll turn this around.

Rangers' Brassard Having Quiet Series

News: Derick Brassard went minus-1 with two shots and no points in Tuesday's Game 6 loss to the Flyers.
Analysis: Despite playing well Tuesday, Derick Brassard still has just one lonely point to show for the series. He was credited with three takeaways and no giveaways in this one, and was a big part of the offensive-zone pressure the Rangers generated early in this one. Unfortunately, they couldn't convert and ended up falling way behind by mid-game.

Rangers' Brassard Nets Assist In Game 2 Loss

News: Derick Brassard collected a Game 2 assist in Sunday's 4-2 loss to Philadelphia.
Analysis: After posting zero points in his last two games, Derick Brassard is back in the saddle. Also noteworthy was the nearly five minutes worth of power-play time for the team's third line center, which accounted for nearly a third of his total ice time. Brassard has come on more consistently with his offense more recently, producing five goals and five assists in his last 15 games dating back to March 18 of the regular season.

Rangers' Brassard Will Play Thursday

News: Derick Brassard (back) will play in Game 1 on Thursday against the Flyers, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: The center left practice Tuesday with a back issue, but claims he could have kept playing if it were a game. He said he feels 100-percent now, so his back should be a non-factor moving forward.

Rangers' Brassard Practices

News: Derick Brassard (back) practiced with the team Wednesday, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Derick Brassard left Tuesday's practice after hurting his back, but head coach Alain Vigneault said he expected the center to be available for Thursday's Game 1 against the Flyers. The fact that he was back on the ice Wednesday makes him look like a pretty safe bet to play at this point.

News: Derick Brassard left Tuesday's practice holding his lower back, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

Rangers' Brassard Sets New Career High

News: Derick Brassard found the net for his 18th goal of the season in Sunday's 5-0 rout of Edmonton.
Analysis: While Derick Brassard's now set a new career high in goals, we can't help but feel he's capable of more. Still, his solid 42 points in 75 games is good for fifth on the team and is just five shy of his career-high 47 points, set during the 2010-11 campaign.
