If Henrik Lundqvist starts on Saturday as anticipated, it will be his 600th appearance.

Lundqvist will be the 43rd goaltender in NHL history to reach that milestone. Given that he's only 32 years old and showing no signs of slowing down soon, he should have plenty of milestones left in him. He's won 324 games and possesses a 2.27 career GAA and .920 save percentage.

The NHL awarded the Rangers' fourth goal on Tuesday to Rick Nash after it was initially credited to Martin St. Louis.

As a result, Nash scored his first hat trick as a member of the New York Rangers. He's been fantastic this season with 23 goals and 36 points in 32 contests. It's been quite the turnaround from his disappointing 2013-14 campaign where he scored just 26 goals and 39 points in 65 games.

Martin St. Louis scored twice in a 4-2 victory over Washington Tuesday night.

St. Louis has 12 goals and 25 points in 32 games this season. He might be 39 years old, but St. Louis is still one of the league's top players. He's a good bet to at least maintain his current pace.

Dan Boyle ended his seven-game point drought on Tuesday.

Boyle only has two goals and three points in 16 contests in 2014-15. Boyle's adjustment to playing with the Rangers was complicated when he broke his right hand in the opener and was forced to miss the 14 contests that followed. "I thought he was a little better tonight," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault. "It's going to take a little bit of time here. He's going to be fine."

Rick Nash continued his torrid season Tuesday by registering two goals and an assist in a 4-2 defeat of the Capitals.

Nash has seen his personal scoring streak get snapped at 11 in the past week, but after being held pointless in two outings he got back on track with three in this contest. His 36 points on the season currently rank him 10th in the league. Martin St. Louis also tallied twice in the victory while Mats Zuccarello and Derick Brassard each recorded two assists as well.

Henrik Lundqvist steered away 30 of 32 shots Tuesday night en route to a 4-2 victory over Washington.

The red hot netminder extended his winning streak to six games with the victory and improved his record to 15-7-3 on the season. After a mediocre start to the campaign Lundqvist has gradually improved his numbers to the point where he now holds a 2.44 GAA and a .913 save percentage.

Henrik Lundqvist will be between the pipes Tuesday against the Captials.

The Rangers come in trailing the Caps by two points and one ROW in the standings, flip-flopping between the second Wild Card slot and the third slot in the Metro. In Lundqvist's previous ten starts versus the Caps over the last four years, he's 7-3 with three shutouts and only three games having allowed three or more goals.

It's been confirmed that Lee Stempniak has been dealing with a case of the mumps.

He skated on his own Monday and it's expected that he'll join his teammates for practice on Tuesday. That probably means that he's not infectious anymore, so a return to the lineup could be just around the corner.
Dec 22 - 2:20 PM

Daniel Girardi played in his 600th game on Sunday.

Girardi also became the 21st player to participate in at least 600 games with the New York Rangers. Since making his debut in the 2006-07 campaign, Girardi has emerged as a valuable all-around defenseman. He excels defensively and can contribute with the puck as well, although he's not great in standard leagues given that he's only once reached the 30-point mark. He has two goals and eight points in 31 contests this season.

Cameron Talbot stopped all 18 shots he faced in Sunday's 1-0 win over Carolina.

Talbot wasn't terribly busy tonight, but he was steady throughout the game. The 27-year-old has three wins on the season and they all came via the shutout. He has a 2.02 goals-against-average and a .928 save percentage. Despite the solid numbers, he has no fantasy upside because he's stuck behind Henrik Lundqvist.
Dec 21 - 10:06 PM

Ryan McDonagh scored a goal in the Rangers' 1-0 win over Carolina.

McDonagh's first period goal held for the rest of the game. The low score is a little surprising considering both team's had their backup goaltenders in. McDonagh has two goals and 10 points in 20 games this season. Derek Stepan and Mats Zuccarello picked up the assists on the goal. The Rangers have now won six games in a row.
Dec 21 - 9:48 PM

John Moore will again be a healthy scratch against Carolina on Sunday night.

Coach Vigneault has opted to not make any lineup changes save for the goalie switch on this second of a home-and-home series. Moore has little to no fantasy value.

Cam Talbot will get the nod Sunday night against the Hurricanes in the second of a home-and-home series.

The Rangers snatched victory from the jaws of defeat Saturday night with a late tying goal and the win in a shootout, with Henrik Lundqvist in net. Naturally, Talbot will step in tonight. He has allowed just 15 goals on 196 shots in six starts and seven games this season. That's a 2.34 GAA and .921 save percentage.

There is currently no update on whether Lee Stempniak has the mumps.

It is taking an awfully long time to determine or let everyone know as Stempniak was tested on Thursday. He has five goals and 12 points in 26 games with a plus-six rating.
Dec 21 - 8:11 AM

Kevin Klein lit the lamp for the Rangers in their 3-2 shootout win over the Hurricanes on Saturday night.

Klein tied the game with 2:23 left in the third. He now has seven goals this season, which is more than he’s had in his last two seasons combined. He’s riding an unsustainable 22.6 percent scoring rate, so potential fantasy owners beware. Still, he has 11 points on the year, so he should be able to set a career-high there. J.T. Miller scored the other goal in the win.
