MacKenzie Skapski

The Rangers have two men to thank for their current status without Lundqvist being as good as it is.

Over a month ago, I wrote about New York Ranger franchise goaltender Henrik Lundqvist’s injury and how backup goalie Cam Talbot would be able to keep the Rangers afloat in his absence. Through those three weeks Talbot did just that, and probably played better than many expected. Talbot and rookie net minder MacKenzie Skapski have gone above and beyond to have the Rangers not only in first place in the Metro, but in the President’s Trophy race, and with Lundqvist finally cleared for practice, their performances should be recognized.
