Rangers' Alexandar Georgiev: Gets starting nod
Georgiev will guard the cage in Wednesday's home game against the Islanders, Brian Heyman of Newsday reports.
Georgiev has been a little shaky recently, posting a sub-par 3.62 GAA and .886 save percentage through his last two appearances. The 22-year-old netminder will look to get back on track and pick up his fourth victory of the campaign in a home matchup with an Islanders team that's averaging 2.90 goals per game on the road this season, 21st in the NHL....

Rangers' Mats Zuccarello: Out again
Zuccarello (lower body) won't play Wednesday against the Islanders, Brian Heyman of Newsday reports.
Zuccarello will miss a third straight contest Wednesday, and he remains without a definite timetable for his return to the lineup. Another update on the veteran winger's status should surface prior to Friday's matinee matchup with the Flyers.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Filip Chytil: Scores game-winner against Stars
Chytil scored the game-winner early in the third period during Monday's 2-1 win over the Stars.
After failing to light the lamp in 17 games to begin the season, the 19-year-old flipped the switch and has now scored a goal in four straight. Chytil is starting to get regular power-play time as well as skating in a top-six role at even strength, and while he'll likely to continue to run hot and cold as the season progresses, his talent makes him worth rostering while he's locked in....

Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist: Makes 16 saves in win over Stars
Lundqvist stopped 16 of 17 shots in Monday's 2-1 win over the Stars.
The 36-year-old is still going strong, posting a 5-0-1 record in seven November starts with a .922 save percentage. Lundqvist is no longer the perennial Vezina Trophy contender he was a decade ago, but he's still capable of carrying the Rangers, who now sit second in the Metropolitan Division thanks to an 8-1-1 surge over their last 10 games....

Rangers' Mats Zuccarello: Unavailable against Stars
Zuccarello (lower body) won't be in action for Monday's meeting with Dallas, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.
Zuccarello has appeared in just one of the Rangers' prior five outings and will now miss another game due to his lower-body issue. When healthy, the winger has notched 10 points, 31 shots and 19 blocks in 16 games. Recent call-up Steven Fogarty figures to make his 2018-19 debut in Zuccarello's stead.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist: Between pipes against Stars
Lundqvist will tend the twine for Monday's matchup with Dallas, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.
Lundqvist will be making his seventh appearance in the pipes in the Rangers' previous eight contests, having gone 4-0-1 with a 2.61 GAA in those previous six outings. King Henrik is currently sporting his best GAA (2.71) and save percentage (.918) in three seasons despite playing in front of a defense that is allowing the fourth most shots per game in the league (34.1)....

Rangers' Ryan Lindgren: Struggling offensively at AHL level
Lindgren picked up just his second point of the season in AHL Hartford's 4-3 loss to Rochester on Sunday.
Lindgren now has no goals and two assists in 16 games for the Wolf Pack. While the University of Minnesota product isn't known for his offensive production, Lindgren did manage to chip in four points in 10 AHL games at the end of last season. Acquired from Boston in the Rick Nash deal in February, Lindgren is going to make his living as a depth defender who can help on the penalty kill. It's possible he sees time with the Rangers later this season.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Steven Fogarty: Recalled from AHL
Fogarty was called up from AHL Hartford on Sunday.
Fogarty has seen an uptick in his offensive production at the AHL level this season, already scoring seven goals and 14 points in 18 games. During the 2016-17 and 2017-18 campaigns, he scored exactly 20 points in each while playing in over 60 games. A third-round pick in 2011, Fogarty has just one game of NHL experience under his belt.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Vinni Lettieri: Descends to AHL
Lettieri was assigned to AHL Hartford on Sunday, Jon Lane of NHL.com reports.
Lettieri logged 14 games with the big club and was pointless with a minus-4 rating while averaging 8:54 of ice time per contest. The 23-year-old will continue his development in the minors, where he scored 23 goals and 12 helpers in 55 games last year. Lettieri's assignment may signal that Mats Zuccarello (lower body) is ready to re-enter the lineup Monday versus the Stars.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Chris Kreider: Roaring toward career pace
Kreider delivered a three-point game (one goal, two assists) in a 4-2 victory over the Panthers on Saturday night.
The goal was his Rangers-leading 11th and fifth on the power play. And he extended his point streak to four games and seven points (four goals, three assists). Kreider is on pace for a 40-goal, 75-point season. Use this speed demon well.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist: Moves into seventh on NHL win list
Lundqvist made 39 saves in a 4-2 win over Florida on Saturday. He also picked up a power-play assist.
The win moved him into seventh place on the NHL wins list with 438. Lundqvist now sits ahead of Jacques Plante and is eight wins from passing Terry Sawchuk for sixth. He's actually delivering solid production on an overachieving team right now. He may tire and the Rangers may slow. But until then, King Henrik is delivering fantasy success.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist: In goal versus Panthers
Lundqvist will start in Saturday's game against the Panthers, Jon Lane of NHL.com reports.
Lundqvist's last outing was troubling as he yielded five goals on 17 shots to the Islanders and was yanked after two periods. That outing brought his save percentage down to a .915, and he'll look to get back on track against a Panthers team that ranks seventh in the league with a 51.98 Corsi For percentage.... See More ...

Rangers' Ryan Strome: Donning blue sweater for first time
Strome will make his Rangers debut against the Panthers on Saturday, Jon Lane of NHL.com reports.
Strome was acquired from the Oilers in exchange for Ryan Spooner on Friday, but he's already ready to rock with his new team. Mats Zuccarello (lower body) will miss the contest, which paves the way for Strome to see power-play time right out of the gate. He should be eager for a fresh start after recording a mere two points over his first 18 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Mats Zuccarello: Surprise scratch Saturday
Zuccarrelo will miss Saturday's home game against the Panthers due to a lower-body injury, Jon Lane of NHL.com reports.
Zuccarello had just returned from a groin injury Thursday against the Islanders, and he was quite active in that one, hoisting seven shots on goal over 17:22 of ice time in a 7-5 road loss. Fortunately for the Rangers, newly acquired forward Ryan Strome will make his debut for the Blueshirts; he's not on the same level as Z, but nonetheless can hold his own on the right wing....

Rangers' Ryan Strome: Headed to Big Apple
Strome was flipped from the Oilers to the Rangers in a swap for Ryan Spooner on Friday.
Strome has a mere two points in 18 outings this season, despite recording 14:25 of ice time per game. The center was seeing time on the power play with the Rangers but has zero points to show for it. If Strome gets a top-six assignment with Chris Kreider and Vladislav Namestnikov, he could quickly find his way out of his season-long slump.... See More ... See Less
