Penguins interested in Rangers winger Mats Zuccarello

Penguins interested in Rangers winger Mats Zuccarello The Penguins have shown some interest in Rangers winger Mats Zuccarello, reports Larry Brooks of the New York Post. The pending unrestricted free agent has been on a hot streak as of late with a seven-game point streak, picking up 13 points in that span which has likely boosted his trade value with the deadline fast approaching. Zuccarello would certainly give Pittsburgh an offensive boost on the wing. However, Brooks notes that the Penguins’ prospect pool isn’t the deepest while they’re also missing two of their top three picks, which might make a trade harder as New York will undoubtedly be looking for futures in return.

The Rangers are coming off a 4 -3 win at Nashville on Saturday night. The victory snapped a three-game skid, but the team has earned points in eight of its last 10 games. Marc Staal and Jesper Fast scored third periods goals as the Rangers overcame a 3-2 deficit to beat the Predators.

Kasperi Kapanen scored for the Maple Leafs, who had their four-game winning streak snapped.

Toronto had a season-high 56 shots, forcing Georgiev to be at his best throughout. He is the seventh goalie in franchise history with 50 or more saves in a game. The previous goalie to do it was Henrik Lundqvist last year.

The Rangers penalty killers also helped to slow down the Maple Leafs. Toronto went 0 for 4 on the power play despite managing 23 shots.

Leading 2-1 in the third period, McQuaid gave the Rangers some insurance when he scored from the point at 11:59 for his second goal of the season.

The Rangers, who were blanked by Carolina on Friday, got off to a fast start against the Leafs.

Kreider sent a pass from behind the net to Zuccarello, who was alone in front. Toronto backup goalie Garret Sparks stopped Zuccarello twice, but the loose puck went to Zibanejad, who scored his 23rd of the season just 28 seconds into the game.

Despite being badly outshot, the Rangers took a 2-1 lead after killing off another penalty. Ryan Strome entered the zone and sent a pass to Kreider. Kreider sent a cross-ice pass to Vesey, who wristed it past Sparks for his 12th of the season at 14:05.
