The New York Rangers are one of the hottest teams in the NHL right now.

The team has points in eight straight (7-0-1), and they have won six consecutive games. As of this writing (Thursday, February 16), the team is third in the Metropolitan Division and sixth in the league with a 32-14-8 record for seven points.

The main reason why this team is playing so well is because of their offense. After being in the middle of the pack in terms of goals scored this season, the Rangers currently find themselves tenth in the league in goals scored with 182 goals in 54 games (3.37 goals per game).

In their last five games in wins over the Calgary Flames, Vancouver Canucks (two wins), Seattle Kraken, and the Carolina Hurricanes, the Rangers have scored 27 goals. When a team is scoring at that kind of pace, they will certainly win their fair share of hockey games.

One player who has found his scoring touch is Artemi Panarin. Even though they are not playing on the same line right now, the acquisition of Vladimir Tarasenko has sparked Panarin’s game in a big way.

Panarin has eight points on six goals and two assists in his last three games. On Saturday night, February 11, in his team’s 6-2 win over the Hurricanes. Panarin scored four goals and added an assist for five points.

Mika Zibanejad is also lighting it up for the Blueshirts. He has seven goals in a five-game goal streak and also has nine points on a five-game point streak.

Chris Kreider is also starting to heat up for the Rangers. He has seven points (three goals and four assists) on a six-game point streak.

If the team can keep putting the puck in the net regularly, they will definitely be an extremely tough team to beat come April.
