In his first four games as a Ranger, Taylor Pyatt has three goals on six shots and is averaging 14:54 per game.
After playing about 12:30 in the first two games, Pyatt was moved up to the second line on Wednesday and played nearly 15 minutes and against the Flyers he played nearly 20 minutes.
Following the game against the Bruins, John Tortorella praised Pyatt “he has played well. I worry sometimes about the speed of the game, but he gets there. He has been one of our most consistent players. Sometimes I worry that he isn’t going to get down the ice, but he gets there. We put him on the second line and he contributes with a big goal. He is probably one of our most consistent players.”
Ryan Callahan told Newsday, that one of Pyatt’s strengths is holding onto pucks down low and helping create offense around the net.
