Derek Stepan (flu) only logged 7:04 minutes in Monday's 4-3 overtime win against Phoenix.

Rangers coach Alain Vigneault made the decision to let Stepan attempt to play through the illness and later regretted that choice. "They didn't look good," Vigneault said, also referring to Martin St. Louis, who similarly attempted to play through the flu. "They both said they wanted to play but, at the end of the day, I've got to take that out of their hands because they had no energy and, obviously, it showed." Stepan and the Rangers are off Tuesday before they face Philadelphia on Wednesday.

Derek Stepan has led the Rangers since the Olympic break with 12 points in 11 games.

This campaign has still been a far cry from his 2013 season when he recorded 44 points in 48 games. It's worth noting that he did most of miss the preseason because the then restricted free agent was holding out and that might be at least partially to blame for his decline. Regardless, we see him as a good candidate to bounce back in 2014-15.
