Balanced Scoring Coming From The New York Rangers

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

 We're already looking forward to the first-round matchup between the Philadelphia Flyers and the New York Rangers, with the longtime rivals still battling for home-ice advantage in that series.

The Flyers picked up a point in their shootout loss to Boston on Sunday, while the Rangers blanked the hapless Edmonton Oilers 5-0.

What's impressive about the Rangers is their surprisingly balanced attack. They have eight players with 15 goals or more, and defenseman Ryan McDonagh has 14. What remains shocking is that while Martin St. Louis is one of those players -- he has 29 goals -- he has yet to score since joining the Rangers at the deadline.

The two-time NHL scoring champ has three lonely assists in 14 games since the trade, and it's not like he's not getting his opportunities. On Sunday he had 5:09 of power-play time against the Oilers but was held pointless.
