McDonagh Active In Rangers' Loss

News: Ryan McDonagh led all skaters with 42:12 of ice time in Friday's Game 5 loss to the Kings, notching a power-play assist on the team's first goal.
Analysis: Ryan McDonagh has emerged from this postseason as one of the league's rising stars among the cresting trend of two-way defenders, recording 17 points in the playoffs and seemingly never leaving the ice. This playoff run is on the heels of a 43-point regular season that saw him grab 14 goals under new coach Alain Vigneault. McDonagh will be a trendy pick in next fall's drafts. There will be two ways to approach this: either this will be the last time you'll be able to get him a slight discount or you will have to overpay because of his exposure this past season due to the playoffs and his strong play for Team USA in the Winter Olympics. Either way, he'll be a safe pick with his best years ahead of him.

Rangers' McDonagh: Five-Game Point Streak

News: Ryan McDonagh's point streak now stands at five games and seven points (one goal, six assists) after a goal and assist in Saturday's 5-4, double overtime loss to the Kings.
Analysis: He has come into his own this postseason and now has 16 points - including 12 assists - in 22 playoff games. But he was also burned on the winner when Dustin Brown broke free long enough to slide into the high slot and tip home the final tally.

Two Helpers In Loss For Rangers' McDonagh

News: Ryan McDonagh picked up two assists, but went minus-2 in Tuesday's Game 5 loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis: While he had some good defensive plays and offensive contributions are always nice, Ryan McDonagh was caught flat-footed on a couple of Montreal goals -- an unusual occurrence for the star defender. That said, he does have a sparkling nine points (two goals, seven assists) and plus-2 rating in the five games of this series so far.

Rangers' McDonagh Sticking It To Montreal

News: Ryan McDonagh scored a goal on six shots, added a power-play assist and went plus-1 in Monday's Game 2 victory over the Canadiens.
Analysis: Ryan McDonagh's unassisted tally just 17 seconds after Max Pacioretty put the Habs up 1-0 was a major turning point in this game. He now has six points and a plus-3 rating in the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals against the team that drafted him 12th overall in 2007, then unwisely traded him to the Rangers for Scott Gomez.

Rangers' McDonagh Proving Mettle In Postseason

News: Ryan McDonagh had a monstrous offensive day Saturday in Game 1 against Montreal. He scored a power-play goal and added three assists, one of which game on the power play, and finished plus-2.
Analysis: Wow. He'd had three points in 14 games prior to Saturday, so this effort totally eclipsed that. But all seven of those points have come in the last five games, so the Rangers' number one defender is finally starting to prove his mettle in the playoffs.

Rangers' McDonagh Gets Two Points In Game 5

News: Ryan McDonagh tallied a goal and an assist in Friday's Game 5 win over the Penguins.
Analysis: After being held scoreless through his first 10 postseason games, Ryan McDonagh now has three points in his last two contests. It's good to see him starting to come alive offensively as the Rangers try to stave off elimination, but it may too late to offset the utter lack of production he provided for the first 10 games of the playoffs.

McDonagh Snaps Streak in Rangers' Loss

News: Ryan McDonagh registered an assist in 26-plus minutes of ice time during Wednesday's 4-2, Game 4 loss to Pittsburgh.
Analysis: We would never have bet of all the Rangers' defensemen, it would have taken Ryan McDonagh 11 games to get off the schneid, but it's his first point of the post season.

Ryan McDonagh, D, NYR Rangers' McDonagh Extends Point Scoring Drought

Rangers' McDonagh Extends Point Scoring Drought

News: Ryan McDonagh's logged nearly 28-minutes of total ice time and plus-1 in a 4-2 win over Philadelphia in Game 5 on Sunday.
Analysis: Dating back to the regular season, his point-less streak is now at eight games. As long as he continues to log the most minutes on New York's blue line, it's hard to imagine the woes continuing for too much longer. Ryan McDonagh is a minus-1 with two penalty minutes and seven shots through five post season games thus far.

Rangers' McDonagh Ready For Thursday

News: Ryan McDonagh (shoulder) is ready to go for Thursday's Game 1 against the Flyers, the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Ryan McDonagh said he has full range of motion in his recently injured shoulder, and is back to 100-percent. Whether or not that's true remains to be seen, but he added that he's excited to play Thursday, so fantasy owners can count on him being in the lineup for their playoff pools.

Rangers' McDonagh Expected To Play Thursday

News: Ryan McDonagh (arm) took part in practice Tuesday and is expected to play in Thursday's playoff opener against the Flyers, Blueshirts United reports.
Analysis: Ryan McDonagh missed the last five games of the regular season with an injured arm, but he'll resume his role on the Rangers' top defensive pairing in the postseason.

McDonagh (Arm) Healthy But Out Saturday

News: Ryan McDonagh (arm) is apparently healthy enough to go but will sit on Saturday.
Analysis: Ryan McDonagh skated with the team in morning skate on Saturday but will be out. Although he won't play in the season finale, McDonagh will likely be in the lineup for the Rangers' first playoff game.

Rangers' McDonagh (Arm) Skates With Team Saturday

News: Ryan McDonagh (arm) skated with the team on Saturday morning.
Analysis: Ryan McDonagh skated on his own on Friday, so the fact that he joined the team on Saturday is encouraging for his status on Saturday night.

Ryan McDonagh, D, NYR

Ryan McDonagh

Rangers' McDonagh To Skate On Own Friday

News: Ryan McDonagh (arm) will skate on his own Friday.
Analysis: Ryan McDonagh, who has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Sabres, will perform off-ice workouts while the team takes part in morning skate before taking to the ice Friday. He'll then take part in morning skate Saturday, at which point it will be decided whether he'll be able to play in the Rangers' regular-season finale against the Canadiens.

Rangers' McDonagh: '50/50' To Play In Finale

News: Coach Alain Vigneault ruled Ryan McDonagh (arm) out for Thursday's game against the Sabres and said it was "50/50" whether or not the defenseman would play in the regular season finale against the Canadiens on Saturday, Jim Cerny of BlueshirtsUnited.com reports.
Analysis: After injuring his shoulder more than a week ago, Ryan McDonagh was able to skate for a second straight day Tuesday, but is still not quite 100 percent healthy. McDonagh will likely have to get in some contact work in practice before being cleared for a return.

Rangers' McDonagh Practices

News: Ryan McDonagh (arm) practiced in a non-contact jersey Wednesday.
Analysis: It was Ryan McDonagh's second straight practice on the ice, although he's clearly not ready to draw back into the lineup just yet. Keep an eye out for the blueliner to be cleared for contact, at which point his return should be imminent.

Rangers' McDonagh Not Likely To Dress

News: Ryan McDonagh (arm) took light wrist shots on net in Tuesday's team practice and isn't likely to play against Carolina, reports Andrew Gross of The Record.
Analysis: The defenseman was also observed feeding winger Marty St. Louis one-timers. While it appears Ryan McDonagh is getting back in the saddle, with the team having already punched their ticket to the playoffs, it's not likely the organization will risk McDoangh's long-term health for a chance at home-ice advantage. However, here's a chance the offensively potent blueliner comes back to regain his timing in one of the team's two remaining regular-season games.

Rangers' McDonagh Out Saturday

News: Ryan McDonagh (arm) will not play Saturday against the Senators, ESPN's Katie Strang reports.
Analysis: Ryan McDonagh's set to miss a second straight game with the arm injury, but coach Alain Vigneault indicated Thursday that he doesn't expect the 24-year-old to be out for long. Consider him questionable for Tuesday's game against Carolina until there's indication otherwise.

Rangers' McDonagh Day-To-Day

News: Coach Alain Vigneault indicated Thursday that he doesn't expect Ryan McDonagh (arm) to be out long.
Analysis: For now, Ryan McDonagh is in the day-to-day category and presumably unavailable for Thursday's game against the Avs.

Rangers' McDonagh Traveling With Team

News: Ryan McDonagh (arm) will travel with the team to Denver, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: The team didn't give a real update on Ryan McDonagh's condition, but the fact that he's traveling with the team suggests that the issue is not that serious. Consider him day-to-day moving forward, and keep an eye out for another update on his status prior to Thursday's tilt with the Avalanche.

Rangers' McDonagh Hurt Late Tuesday

News: Ryan McDonagh left Tuesday's game with just seconds remaining in the contest after taking a hard shot into the boards from Vancouver's Alex Burrows. He suffered what appeared to be an injury to his left arm.
Analysis: We'll likely have more information later on the nature and extent of the injury, but it certainly didn't look good after Ryan McDonagh fell to the ice in serious pain. Any major injury to their star defender would be a massive blow to the Rangers' playoff hopes.

McDonagh's Three Points Carry Rangers

News: Ryan McDonagh scored the game-winning goal in overtime, dished out a pair of primary assists, went plus-3 and added two PIM in Monday's victory over Phoenix.
Analysis: Now that's how you fill up a stat sheet. For those of you in formats that count hits and blocks, he had two each of those as well, and three shots on goal to boot. Already an outstanding defensive defenseman in his first few NHL seasons, Ryan McDonagh's developed into a full-fledged offensive difference-maker this year. He's got a four-game point streak going and has been on fire in general during March, with five goals and seven assists in 13 games.

News: Ryan McDonagh had a team-high six shots on goal and three blocked shots in Sunday's 1-0 loss to San Jose.
