Henrik Lundqvist allowed two goals on 36 shots in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

Lundqvist was put in a tough spot when rookie Brett Howden had a bad turnover right in front of him, with the Hurricanes quickly capitalizing on it. King Henrik then gave up another goal, this time with the game out of reach at 5-1. The Swede's record will improve to 13-12-7 on the year, with a 3.04 goals-against-average and a .908 save percentage.

Mika Zibanejad scored two goals and assisted on two others in Tuesday’s 6-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

Working a power play, Kevin Shattenkirk had a great bank pass off Carolina’s end boards to Chris Kreider who cross-crease fed it to Zibanejad for the tap in. Zibanejad then followed that up with a goal a couple of minutes later after Mats Zuccarello sent him a sweet between the legs feed. Finally, Zibanejad ended his night with primary assists on a couple of power play goals by Pavel Buchnevich. The Swede’s four-point night makes him the first Ranger to have four such outings in a single season since Marian Gaborik did the same during the 2010-11 season. The 25-year-old center is on a three-game point streak, improving his numbers to 14 goals and 41 points in 46 games this season.

Ryan Lindgren will make his NHL debut on Tuesday night.

Lindgren, who was originally drafted 49th overall in the 2016 NHL Draft by Boston, has five assists and 41 penalty minutes in 35 games for Hartford of the AHL this year.

Fredrik Claesson (shoulder) is expected to miss two-to-three weeks.

It's hoped that Claesson will be able to return after the All-Star break. He was injured in Saturday's match against the Islanders.
Jan 15 - 1:56 PM

Neal Pionk is back on the sidelines with a lower-body injury.

Pionk has been battling the problem for a while now, according to coach David Quinn, and he won't play Tuesday night. The Rangers hope to get him back after the All-Star break, which would keep him on the shelf for at least two additional contests.
Jan 15 - 1:53 PM

Henrik Lundqvist will start Tuesday night versus Carolina.

Lundqvist has been on the bench for the last two games with Alexander Georgiev between the pipes. Lundqvist has lost his past three starts and he has surrendered 15 goals against during that time.
Jan 15 - 1:46 PM

Ryan Lindgren has been recalled by the Rangers.

Lindgren has five assists and 41 penalty minutes in 35 games for Hartford of the AHL this season. He was acquired from Boston in the Rick Nash trade and may finally get a chance to male his NHL debut.
Jan 14 - 5:26 PM

Connor Brickley has been traded to the New York Rangers.

Brickley had seven goals and 11 points in 39 games for Milwaukee of the AHL prior to the move. He has 17 points in 67 career NHL outings. Brickley will head to Hartford of the AHL. The Rangers sent Cole Schneider to the Nashville Predators in the deal.

David Quinn went ballistic on his New York Rangers players after their lack of effort in a 7-5 loss to Columbus Sunday.

"You’re going to lose hockey games. But you better want to battle somebody. It’s just ridiculous," Quinn said. "Three games where we feel good about our effort and our compete, and then we come out here and do that? It’s a freaking joke... We’re going to watch this and we’re going to learn from this. We have zero chance if we’ve got 20 guys in uniform not wanting to compete for pucks and get into people and have a little bit of snarl to your game." It should be interesting to see how the team responds or what kind of fallout personnel-wise will come out of this.

Alexandar Georgiev allowed seven goals on 40 shots in Sunday’s 7-5 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Very tough night for Georgiev who was pummelled for 19 shots in the opening frame, giving up two goals. It’s been tough to gauge his play this season playing behind such a poor squad. It’s worth noting that he is just the eighth goaltender in franchise history to appear in 26 appearances prior to their 23rd birthday, showing that the organization has faith in the young netminder. He’ll see his record fall to 6-8-0 with a 3.43 goals-against-average and a .895 save percentage.
Jan 13 - 9:30 PM

Chris Kreider scored a goal in Sunday’s 7-5 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The Blue Jackets looked like they’d take a 2-1 lead into the second period but Kreider buried a loose puck in front with just over two minutes left in the opening period to tie things up. Unfortunately for the Rangers, the Blue Jackets dominated over the final two periods, outside the final five minutes where they got a couple of goals to make this one interesting. The goal extends Kreider’s team lead to 21, bringing him to 33 points in 45 games this season. Mats Zuccarello (x2), Jimmy Vesey and Ryan Strome also scored in the loss.
Jan 13 - 9:29 PM

Neal Pionk (lower body) will be back in the lineup on Sunday.

Pionk will replace Adam McQuaid in the lineup when the Rangers play versus Columbus. It didn't look like Pionk would be in the lineup based on the pregame warmup line rushes, but his inclusion was a true game-time move.
