Description: Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonaugh really surprised fans with the amount of offensive production last season.
Insight: McDonaugh scored 14 goals and 43 points while adding another four goals and 17 points in the playoffs a year ago. He had the opportunity to play more offense and he took advantage. Veteran free agent signee Dan Boyle will likely take a part of that role away from McDonaugh this season, but McDonaugh is still expected to about 13 goals and 30 assists.

The 24-year-old's career high in points is 32 in 2011-12, but he could exceed that this season because he's getting more power-play time. In the past, he would be the third blueliner used on the power play after Michael Del Zotto and Dan Girardi, but he has skated with the top power-play unit this season.

Description: Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh left Saturday's game against the Canadiens after taking an elbow to the back from Max Pacioretty that drove him into the glass face-first. McDonagh may have suffered a concussion on the play, according to the New York Daily News.
Insight: New York's defenseman are dropping like flies. The Blueshirts also lost Dan Girardi to a leg injury after he took a P.K. Subban slapshot off his right ankle late in the third period. Michael Del Zotto was already out with a lower-body injury and Marc Staal was less than 100 percent with the flu Saturday. Staal might be the only healthy player out of New York's top-four blueliners when the Rangers host Winnipeg Tuesday.
