The New York Rangers are coming off a sweep of the arch-rival New York Islanders in a home and home.
The Rangers, who are playing for the third time in four nights, will be looking for their third consecutive win. A victory tonight at the Garden would increase their record to 18-11-1.
After a crazy first game, which saw the Rangers and the Islanders combine for 11 goals, both teams couldn't find the back of the net in the second game. The Rangers would win 2-0, but Brian Boyle's goal (the second of the game) came with 2.7 second left on the clock.
The hope among Rangers nation is that the performance isn't repeated. The power play, which has been horrible for the Rangers lately, will be looking to make some improvement. Michael Del Zotto is seeing less power play time, Derek Stepan and Artem Anisimov are seeing more, as John Tortorella tries to even it out.
