Mika Zibanejad buried his 40th goal of the season 10:12 into the first period to extend New York's lead to 2-0 against the Stars Tuesday. He also had the primary assist on Kaapo Kakko's second goal scored to give the Rangers a 4-0 lead later on.
Zibanejad has done everything and more for the Rangers this season. He is one of the main reasons why they still have an outside shot at qualifying for the playoffs. It is a long-shot, but Zibanejad deserves a lot of the credit for the Rangers' late-season heroics. He has 40 goals and 74 points in 56 contests this year.
