McDonagh had a goal and an assist in a 5-2 victory over the Florida Panthers on Wednesday night.

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's first-period score held up and Cam Talbot made 18 saves as the Rangers extended their victory run to six with a 1-0 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday.

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 had an assist in his first game since Nov. 1, a 3-0 win over Philadelphia on Friday.

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.

McDonagh had two assists in a 4-3 overtime win over New Jersey on Tuesday night.

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 is the new captain of the New York Rangers, replacing forward Ryan Callahan, who was traded away late last season.

McDonagh, 25, is the fourth-youngest Rangers captain and the 11th defenseman to hold the title.
