"You've got [Patrick] Kane or [Tyler] Seguin or [Vladimir] Tarasenko matching up against you the whole night," MacKinnon said. "It's different. It's a challenge."

Shattenkirk building confidence with Rangers by focusing on power play

Defenseman's focus on man-advantage fueling New York's six-game winning streak

by Dan Rosen @drosennhl / NHL.com Senior Writer

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Kevin Shattenkirk wanted to come out on fire with the New York Rangers to prove he deserved the four-year, $26.6 million contract he signed on July 1, to show that he was the prize of the 2017 free agent class for a reason.

Instead, the 28-year-old defenseman, much like his team, found himself in a fog for most of the first month. He was worrying about impressing, which led to playing out of his element, thinking he could help turn around a woeful start by doing more than what was asked of him.

Global Series

Global Series provides taste of NHL to Swedish fans

Games in Sweden deliver unmatched experience to hockey-mad populace

by Dan Rosen @drosennhl / NHL.com Senior Writer

STOCKHOLM -- Hockey Hall of Fame defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom sat in the stands at Ericsson Globe on Saturday surrounded by fellow Swedish hockey fans, many attending an NHL game in person for the first time.

It's that perspective, Lidstrom said, that makes the difference for fans here. It's the experience they got when they watched the Ottawa Senators and Colorado Avalanche play two games in the 2017 SAP NHL Global Series that is the reason why the NHL's return will be remembered as a success, and why future visits here and in other European markets should be planned.
