Many times during a playoff run, one player who may be overlooked by an opponent. In the New York Rangers case, it would be wise if the Carolina Hurricanes did not overlook Pavel Buchnevich. Of course, the Hurricanes must focus on Artemi Panarin, Mika Zibanejad, and Chris Kreider. However, if they ignore Buchnevich they will pay the price.
One of the biggest criticisms of Buchnevich has been his lack of consistency. However, before the pause, Buchnevich finished strong, netting nine goals and 21 points over the New York Rangers’ final 21 regular-season games.
