What makes McDonagh’s ice time all the more impressive is, according to Jeff Klein at the New York Times, he was on the ice for 46.5% of Game 3’s 114:41 minutes which is the sixth highest percentage in the last 25 years.

…wow, I’m exhausted just thinking about that. You have wonder if that type of effort could affect him in today’s game or possibly the rest of the series. Because of the seven game series against Ottawa and now this triple OT game it is imperative that the Rangers end this series as soon as possible to get some rest before hopefully the Eastern Conference Finals. Especially because it’s looking like the Flyers/Devils series could go the distance.

…btw, you see Zubov on this list five times? Glad Rangers got rid of him.
