Rangers 8, Oilers 2: Hat Trick For Gaborik

The New York Rangers were led by a Marian Gaborik hat trick, and two goals from Alexander Frolov in their 8-2 rout of the Edmonton Oilers.

Derek Stepan also had a bounce back game, putting up two assists in the contest.

Martin Biron got the start over Henrik Lundqvist, due to Lundqvist still having flu-like symptoms. Biron was great tonight, and made some key saves when he had to for the Rangers.

Marc Staal and Dan Girardi had great games as well, keeping Biron’s crease clear and his slot empty for most of the night.

The Rangers blew a 1-0 lead in 28 seconds at the start of the second period. They then answered back with two goals in 25 seconds to give themselves a 3-2 lead. They never looked back from there.

Gaborik, in just his second game after missing 12 with a separated shoulder, recorded his 11th career hat trick.


Edmonton Oilers At New York Rangers: Rangers Look To Win Second Straight

Former Rangers' coach Tom Renney will be returning to Madison Square Garden tonight, in the New York Rangers matinee against the Edmonton Oilers

The Rangers -- who are coming off an OT win against the Buffalo Sabres -- will be looking to improve their record to 9-7-1 on the season.

Artem Anisimov was the hero for the Rangers against the Oilers. The young center tallied twice in the contest, including the overtime winner. Martin Biron also played well in place of an ill Henrik Lundqvist. That will be the case this afternoon as well, as Lundqvist recovers from flu-like symptoms.

Ryan Callahan and Brandon Dubinsky will also be expected to play big roles for the Rangers this afternoon. And don't forget about Marian Gaborik, who returned from his shoulder injury against the Sabres the other day. 

The Rangers are looking to play some more consistent hockey, with the team not being able to rally off any big winning streaks thus far this season. They will look to double their current winning streak with a win over Edmonton.
