The New York Rangers find themselves looking at back-to-back inter-divisional games over the next two days. Tonight, the Rangers will face off against the Philadelphia Flyers while tomorrow the Rangers will go against the streaking New Jersey Devils.
Any way you slice it, this is an important two games for the Rangers, who are looking to go three games over .500 for the first time all season. Henrik Lundqvist is 4-1 in his last five games.
The Rangers have won two straight and five of their last seven after besting the Blackhawks, 3-2, on Monday. Brandon Dubinsky scored twice and Erik Christensen notched the game-winner early in the third period.
"It was nice, it came to me there and I made a little move, and shot toward the post where the goalie was leaving," Christensen said. "Good boost for our team at the right time of the game and good boost for my confidence."
Ryan Callahan and Artem Anisimov each registered a pair of assists and Lundqvist made 33 saves.
New York is 4-1-0 on the road this season.
