Why Mika Zibanejad can score 50 goals, and other Opening Night (over)reactions

Mika Zibanejad can score 50 goals for the Rangers this season

When it came to Opening Night, things could not have gone better for the New York Rangers. They played a nearly perfect game, dominating the Tampa Bay Lightning by a 3-1 final score that flattered the visitors. K’Andre Miller, Artemi Panarin and new captain Jacob Trouba all stood out, but Mika Zibanejad was on another level, showing us that Zibanejad can score 50 goals. Live From the Blue Seats sing the praises of the Rangers’ #1 center, and wonder if that 50-goal plateau is achievable for the heart-and-soul Swede this season.
