|2014-15 Regular Season|
The New York Rangers defenseman had one goal and two assists in his prior seven games. He has three goals and 10 assists in 24 contests this season.
McDonagh scored his second goal of the season 4:10 into the game. He slapped the puck in the slot past goaltender Anton Khudobin, who has yet to win this season (0-8-2).
McDonagh missed 11 games because of an ailing shoulder. He also had a shoulder injury last April and missed the last five regular-season contests.
The New York Rangers' new captain didn't have a point in any of his first six games. He had a career-high 14 goals and 29 assists in 77 contests in 2013-14.
McDonagh, 25, is the fourth-youngest Rangers captain and the 11th defenseman to hold the title.
