Stepan Steppin’ Up

Derek Stepan, who, despite playing with a sore ankle, scored the game winner in the Rangers 4-2 win over Tampa last night, now has 5g, 9a in the Rangers last 15 games.

…so much for the sophomore slump. Stepan has taken his game to another level this year and his chemistry with Gaborik and AA has been fun to watch so far this season.

Also @TheBroadwayHat was very happy to be sitting on Stepan’s head last night…

#TheBroadwayHat likes that Wisconsin Badger swagger that is Derek Stepan. Also, it’s a tiny bit comical.

And of course there is this quote from Artem Anisimov on Stepan that everyone tweeted and e-mailed me today (via New York Post)…

“[Stepan], he has [gonads] you know,” said Anisimov, holding his hands together in front of him in a universally understood manner. “He’s got game, you know. That winning goal was huge.”
