Chris Kreider picked up a pair of points for the Rangers in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime victory in New Jersey.

Kreider opened the scoring with a power play marker in the first period and drew an assist on Kevin Klein's overtime winner, bringing his season total to six points in seven outings. Rick Nash and Chris Mueller also scored for the Blueshirts while Ryan McDonagh earned two helpers.

Henrik Lundqvist and the New York Rangers went into New Jersey Tuesday night and upended the Devils in overtime by a score of 4-3.

King Henrik turned aside 28 of 31 shots in the victory and has shaken off a poor stretch to post three straight wins. His record now stands at 4-2-0 while his GAA is 3.15 and his save percentage checks in at .894.

Daniel Girardi (leg) will be in the Rangers' lineup on Tuesday.

Girardi was questionable after blocking a shot on Sunday. He's a big part of the Rangers' defense, but he isn't a top blueliner from an offensive standpoint.

Daniel Girardi (leg) wasn't on the ice with the Rangers on Monday.

Girardi is questionable for Tuesday's game against the New Jersey Devils. He has an assist in six contests in 2014-15.

Kevin Klein was hit in the face by the puck in the dying seconds of Sunday's game.

Klein needed stitches as a result. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault regards his status as day-to-day.

Daniel Girardi needed stitches on his leg after blocking a shot on Sunday.

Girardi's night ended early due to the incident. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault called him day-to-day.
Oct 20 - 8:50 AM

Dan Girardi left Sunday’s game against the Sharks after blocking a shot.

Girardi left the game early in the third period and did not return. There is no word on how serious the injury is. He is considered day-to-day right now.
Oct 19 - 7:43 PM

Rick Nash scored his league-leading seventh goal of the season in New York’s 4-0 win over the San Jose Sharks on Sunday.

Nash scored late in the second period to make it 3-0 for the Rangers. It’s nice to see that his concussion issues are behind him. The 30-year-old was limited to 65 games last season. Nash now has eight points in six games. He’s back to being one of the better snipers in the league. Carl Hagelin, Martin St. Louis and Kevin Hayes also scored for the Rangers.
Oct 19 - 7:42 PM

Henrik Lundqvist stopped all 33 shots he faced in New York’s 4-0 win over the San Jose Sharks on Sunday.

After allowing six goals in back-to-back games, Lundqvist has now allowed just one goal in his last two starts. Despite the slow start, the Rangers goaltender should still be considered an elite goalie in the NHL.
Oct 19 - 7:42 PM

The New York Rangers have put defenseman Dan Boyle (broken hand) on the injured reserve list.

The defenseman was injured opening night and the move is retroactive. He is expected to return from the broken hand in mid-November.
Oct 19 - 8:21 AM

Kevin Hayes is enjoying his time on the first line with Rick Nash and Chris Kreider.

The move was made in the third period against Carolina on Thursday and the trio will at least start Sunday's game together. "Playing with two guys like this is pretty unbelievable," Hayes said. "With their speed and their size, we should be able to control down low and hold onto the puck and get some good scoring opportunities." Hayes will lose the spot when Derek Stepan returns from injury which could be as early as November 3 but he will learn a lot in the meantime. He is pointless in three games with a minus-three rating.
Oct 19 - 7:23 AM

Anthony Duclair will be a healthy scratch for the Rangers against the Sharks on Sunday.

Duclair impressed during camp and has held his own during the early portion of this season, but he fell out of the rotation Thursday and will take a seat Sunday. This is partially because coach Alain Vigneault wants him to play among the top-nine forwards, and right now, he doesn’t see him as one, especially with Martin St. Louis moving off center and back to the wing.
Oct 18 - 7:42 PM

Coach Alain Vigneault will likely move Martin St. Louis back to the wing on Sunday.

Vigneault had been experimenting with St. Louis at center between Rick Nash and Anthony Duclair but said he will decide after practice on Saturday as to whether or not St. Louis will return to right wing for Sunday's game. All this will become moot once Derek Stepan returns from his broken right fibula and returns to his rightful spot as first team center between St. Louis and Nash.

The New York Ranges have sent J.T. Miller to the minors.

Miller will report to Hartford after missing the last two games as a healthy scratch. The 21-year-old needs playing time, something he was not going to see a lot of with the Rangers at the current time.

The New York Rangers have sent Jesper Fast to Hartford of the AHL.

Fast was a healthy scratch in his last two games and he needs playing time as sitting in the press box is not good for his future. The talented Swede had 17 goals and 17 assists in 48 AHL games last season.
