New York Rangers: Eyeing top NHL Eastern Conference perch
Stumbling to a 11-8-4 record to open their season, New York has turned things around and they are now contending for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. The Rangers own a 26-8-2 record since the beginning of December and they are 9-1-2 in February – despite being without G Henrick Lundqvist for their last eleven games. It all adds up to New York being two points behind the Islanders in the Metropolitan Division and three points back of Montreal for first overall in the East.

Though not mathematically eliminated, Arizona will miss the NHL playoff party for a third straight year and will post their first losing record since the 2008-09 NHL season. The Coyotes appear to be in full “tank” mode as they have lost seven straight games – getting outscored by a 28-8 margin in the process. Playing their third game in the New York area, the ‘Yotes are coming off a 3-0 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Monday and a 5-1 pounding by the Islanders on Tuesday. Arizona is one point ahead of Edmonton and six points up on Buffalo in the “race” for last place in the NHL.
