Description: Rangers center Derek Stepan extended his point streak to five games, but the Rangers lost Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals, 6-2.
Insight: Stepan tied the game at one with a power-play goal in the first period, but Tampa Bay played with one fewer active forward, which really seemed to confuse the Rangers and their line changes. Stepan finished with five shots and a minus-two rating. The series is tied 1-1.
 
5/16/2015 3:44:00 PM
Description: Rangers center Derek Stepan had another key point in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals versus the Lightning on Saturday.
Insight: Stepan scored the first goal of the game with 13 seconds remaining in the second period. That was Stepan's four goal of the playoffs and fourth point in the last three postseason games. New York leads the series, 1-0.
 
5/13/2015 11:02:00 PM
Description: Rangers center Derek Stepan scored the game-winner in overtime of Game 7 in the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Capitals.
Insight: Stepan won the faceoff and then slipped to the left side of the goal. The puck made its way to defenseman Keith Yandle, who took a slap shot from the point. Stepan pounced on the rebound and buried his shot passed a diving Branden Holtby. New York won, 2-1, and won the series, 4-3. The Rangers will face the Lightning in the Eastern Conference Finals.
 
4/6/2015 10:00:00 PM
Description: Rangers center Derek Stepan scored the game-winner in overtime versus the Blue Jackets on Monday.
Insight: Stepan scored on a pass from Keith Yandle with 50 seconds to go in overtime. The victory gives the Rangers 109 points, which is three more than Montreal and New York still has a game in hand. The Rangers appear to have the top seed in the east locked up. Stepan scored two goals on Monday and has 16 goals and 39 assists this season.
 
3/22/2015 10:17:00 PM

2/22/2015 10:24:00 PM

1/16/2015 6:52:00 PM
Description: Rangers center Derek Stepan will be a game-time decision on Friday night. UPDATE: Stepan will play on Friday versus the Blue Jackets.
Insight: He is going to see how he feels in warmups according to The Bergen Record. Double check right before the puck drops to see if Stepan will play.
 
12/27/2014 9:37:00 PM

11/3/2014 10:35:00 AM
Description: Rangers center Derek Stepan is not likely to return Monday night against the Blues.
Insight: Stepan fractured his fibula in late September and the 4-6 week timetable is close to up. He's been skating, but is not expected to return Monday, though he is likely to return by the weekend.
 
9/30/2014 7:40:00 PM
Description: Rangers center Derek Stepan played three fewer minutes per game under first-year head coach Alain Vigneault last season.
Insight: Stephan fractured his fibula last week, so his fantasy value has already taken a huge hit, but even before the injury, his value was slightly dipping. Stepan really struggled last season, and there were questions about the Rangers depth chart coming into training camp. The injury certainly does not help Stepan's cause.
 
9/25/2014 11:08:00 AM
Description: Rangers center Derek Stepan fractured his fibula and will be out four-to-six weeks according to the Bergen Record.
Insight: Stepan will likely miss the first seven games of the regular season, but it should take much longer for him to get back into the swing of things. Missing training camp is never a good thing. Even if he returns in four weeks, his fantasy value has taken a hit.
 
5/28/2014 11:04:00 AM
Description: Rangers center Derek Stepan (jaw) had two goals in his return to the lineup for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

5/25/2014 8:00:00 PM
Description: Rangers center Derek Stepan (jaw) will not play in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals against Montreal.
Insight: Stepan broke his jaw in Game 3 when he took a high hit from Brandon Prust. It's possible he'll miss the rest of the postseason, though a couple of Montreal players have expressed doubt about the severity of Stepan's injury.
 
5/25/2014 10:35:00 AM
Description: According to Montreal right wing Brendan Gallagher, the Canadiens are expecting New York center Derek Stepan to suit up Sunday in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals. SOURCE: National Post
Insight: Stepan broke his jaw a little over 48 hours ago so this would be an incredibly fast recovery. If Stepan does play on Sunday, he'll obviously have to wear some sort of protection to cover up his face.

Description: Rangers center Derek Stepan is listed as doubtful for Sunday's Game 4 versus Montreal. SOURCE: Steve Zipay, Newsday
