Kevin Hayes picked up a goal and an assist in a 4-2 win over the Nashville Predators on Saturday.

Hayes made a great move, going around Matt Irwin like he wasn't there before roofing the puck passed Saros to give the Rangers a 3-1 lead midway through the 2nd period. Hayes is now up to five points in nine games this season and might be worth picking up if he continues his strong play.

Henrik Lundqvist stopped 23 of 25 shots in a 4-2 win over the Nashville Predators on Saturday.

It marked his 407th career NHL win, moving him into a tie for 9th most all-time with Hall of Famer Glenn Hall. The win also snaps a four-game losing streak for Lundqvist. He has struggled in the early parts of the season but he looked poised this afternoon, making several big saves in the third period to keep the Rangers ahead. The win improves his record to 2-3-2, with a 3.00 goals against average and a .907 save percentage.

The New York Rangers have announced that Nick Holden will be taking Adam Cracknell's spot in the lineup for this afternoon's game against the Predators.

It looks like the Rangers will be rolling with seven defensemen and 11 forwards. Joining Cracknell in the press box will be Steven Kampfer and Paul Carey.

Pavel Buchnevich has logged under 10 minutes of ice time in each of his last two games.

Buchnevich has been stuck on the fourth line, but he got to play with Mika Zibanejad for a bit in Thursday's game against the Islanders. "Butchie is a young player. Played [41] games last year, is learning to become a pro, is learning to be consistent," said coach Alain Vigneault. "He's still out on the ice with our first power-play unit. He's got a tremendous amount of skill and he's going to get better for us."

Henrik Lundqvist will play between the pipes on Saturday.

It will be Lundqvist's third straight start. He has a 3.15 GAA and .905 save percentage in seven games this season.
Oct 20 - 2:47 PM

Malte Stromwall has been put on unconditional waivers by the New York Rangers.

Going on unconditional waivers is often a step towards a mutual termination of a contract. Stromwall, who is a native of Sweden, might have interest in playing in Europe this season. That wouldn't be too surprising given that the 23-year-old forward is currently with the ECHL's Greenville Swamp Rabbits as opposed to the Rangers' AHL squad.

Marc Staal registered an assist in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Islanders Thursday night.

Staal also had two hits and two blocked shots in the contest. Staal has a goal and three points in eight contests this season. That's more than we would have expected from Staal at this point as he's not an offensive defenseman by any stretch of the imagination.

David Desharnais found the back of the net in the Rangers' 4-3 shootout loss to the Islanders.

Desharnais has two goals and four points in eight games this season. All of his production thus far is thanks to his current three-game point streak. He'll look to keep that going Saturday against Nashville.

Henrik Lundqvist allowed three goals on 38 shots in Thursday's 4-3 shootout loss to the New York Islanders.

King Henrik gave up two more goals in shootout. Lundqvist has now dropped four consecutive games (0-2-2). The Rangers goalie has allowed eight goals in his last two outings, which is less than ideal for his fantasy owners. He has a 1-3-2 record with a 3.15 goals-against-average and a .905 save percentage this season. His better days are behind him, so he's more of a number two goalie in most fantasy leagues.

Mats Zuccarello found the back of the net in Thursday's 4-3 shootout loss to the New York Islanders.

The Rangers found themselves down 3-1 in the third period, but they were able to tie the game thanks to markers by Zuccarello and Kevin Hayes. Zuccarello added another goal in the shootout, but it wasn't enough to give his team the win. The winger now has two goals and five assists in eight games this season. David Desharnais also scored for the Rangers in this one.
Oct 19 - 10:43 PM

Paul Carey will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the New York Islanders.

This will be Carey's third straight game in the press box. He has no goals, no points and a plus-1 rating in five contests this season. Nick Holden and Steven Kampfer will also watch the game from press box.
Oct 19 - 6:47 PM

Henrik Lundqvist will get the start in Thursday's game against the Islanders.

Lundqvist has dropped each of his last three decisions. He has a 1-3-1 record with a 3.23 goals-against-average and a .902 save percentage this season.
Oct 19 - 6:40 PM

Ryan McDonagh didn't take part in Wednesday's practice.

McDonagh is still expected to play on Thursday, so this isn't a major development. However, in the unlikely event that he missed Thursday's morning skate as well then this will be a more serious matter.
Oct 18 - 3:57 PM

Michael Grabner found the back of the net in the Rangers' 5-4 overtime loss to Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

It was Grabner's first goal and second point in seven contests this season. He managed to score 27 goals last season, but he's not a safe bet to finish close to that mark again in 2017-18.

The New York Rangers are enduring one of the worst starts in their franchise's history.

With a 5-4 overtime loss to Pittsburgh Tuesday night, the Rangers are now 1-5-1 this season. That makes them just the second team in franchise history to collect less than four points through seven contests. The last time the Rangers had such a slump was in 1959-60 and they were en route to a 17-38-15 campaign. That's not to say that history will repeat itself, but the Rangers need to stop the bleeding. They'll get another chance to do so against the Islanders on Thursday.
