This is a great signing by Glen Sather as Mats Zuccarello has done an outstanding job in the last 15 games on the top line. He has been an offensive force for the Rangers since Henrik Lundqvist went down and provided Cam Talbot with those extra goals he’s need to succeed.
Zuccarello has posted 5 goals and 12 points in his last 15 games since we said he needed to step up and show he belongs. The Hobbit got the job done and will continue to remain a fixture on Broadway for the next several years.
