Rangers rookie defenseman earns comparison to captain

Brady Skjei has earned his place on this Rangers team, just as the rookie defenseman has worked for the confidence that has blossomed in his game over the past few weeks. In turn, his performance has created a confidence from his coach that draws a reasonable comparison to captain Ryan McDonagh. "Him and Mac right now, when they're going back for pucks, both of them have the ability to beat the first forechecker or to skate away from the pressure," Alain Vigneault said after Monday's practice, his team coming off a heartening 2-1 victory over the league-leading Capitals on Sunday afternoon at the Garden and preparing to take on the Atlantic Division-leading Canadiens (with new coach Claude Julien) Tuesday on Broadway. "It makes it a lot easier on our game instead of defending," Vigneault continued. "And [Sunday] was one of Brady's most effective games as far as beating the first forechecker." Skjei, 22, is built in the mold of Vigneault's ideal defenseman.
