Power Rankings
There are six teams in the NHL averaging three or more goals per game and New York is one of them. They've also allowed the third-fewest goals per game in the entire league. They'll keep trending up.
At 15-4-0 since Dec. 1, the Rangers have become a team most would rather avoid at this point. They have been dominant within their own division, too, except when playing those pesky Islanders.
With 13 wins in their last 14 games, the Rangers look more like a machine than a team at this point. They're getting contributions from everywhere, too. Derek Stepan has averaged a point-per-game since coming back from a fractured leg.
Having won 12 of their last 15, the Rangers have remained one of the NHL's hottest teams over the last month-plus. With 11 goals in their last two games on this run, perhaps they're just getting warmed up.
Though their eight-game streak ended Monday, they showed they could be a force down the stretch. They're getting needed goaltending and are averaging 2.94 goals per game, sixth-best in the league.
Have the Rangers turned the corner? Their recent six-game winning streak would suggest yes. The club is 8-2-0 in its last 10 and Henrik Lundqvist has looked markedly better since his slow start to the season.
All of the sudden, the Rangers are heating up with wins in their last three games. The mumps may have taken out second-leading scorer Derick Brassard, though. So, again, the Rangers need someone to step up.
Two months into the season and, at times, the Rangers look like they're still trying to find their game. But since they're mostly healthy things could start clicking for the Blueshirts.
The Rangers have been heating up lately, but it probably helps that they played the Flyers three times in their last six games. It definitely didn't help that they also played Tampa Bay.
Back-to-back shutouts to halt a three-game skid must feel pretty good for the Rangers. They need to get healthy sooner than later, but there's still time to bounce back from a tough start.
Preseason Power Rankings
The 6-3 loss to Toronto seemed more like a bad night than a reason to hit the panic button on Broadway. The Rangers may be 1-2-0, but Rick Nash is on fire with four goals.
