The New York Rangers could move one step closer to locking up the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs Sunday, as they play host to the defending champs, the Boston Bruins, at Madison Square Garden (7 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network). The Rangers (50-21-7, 107 points) will also be searching for their fifth straight victory and a four-game season series sweep of the Bruins (46-28-4).
On Saturday, New York downed the Montreal Canadiens, 4-1, to move the magic number for an regular-season title to three games. Currently, the Rangers lead the second-place Pittsburgh Penguins by five games.
Meanwhile, the Bruins are 6-1-1 in their last eight games and are coming off a impressive 6-3 road victory over the New York Islanders. Boston can clinch the Northeast Division title if they match the Ottawa Senator's Sunday point total. The Senators play the Islanders earlier in the day.
