Chris Kreider sure seems motivated to get back to the NHL level, and he is proving it on the scoreboard. Kreider netted two more goals last night, giving him four goals in three games since his demotion. Kreider first goal of the contest was another powerplay goal, giving him three tallies with the man advantage in that same time frame. It appears something has clicked with the young winger, and it will be fun to see if he can keep this pace up.

NEW YORK — Doctors are optimistic that New York Rangers defenseman Marc Staal will recover fully after being struck in the eye by a deflected puck.
Staal was injured Tuesday night in the third period of New York’s 4-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers. The 26-year-old defenseman will be sidelined indefinitely but was already showing improvement on Wednesday, the Rangers said...
Larry Brooks at the New York Post says that the Rangers’ waiver claim of defenseman Roman Hamrlik will make a contract offer to Mats Zuccarello more problematic.
Under league rules, each organization can only have 50 players under contract. Hamrlik represented the Rangers 49th player. Which means if the Blueshirts sign Zuccarello, they could be severely hamstrung at the trade...

Gaborik took a feed in the high slot from Rick Nash, who got the Rangers even at 1 with 5:23 left in regulation, and fired in a shot for his eighth of the season and first in nine games.

The Rangers are adding veteran defenseman Roman Hamrlik to the roster while they wait to find out the severity of Marc Staal's eye injury.
New York claimed the 38-year-old Hamrlik off waivers from the Washington Capitals on Wednesday, one day after Staal was struck in the eye by a deflected puck in the third period of the Rangers' 4-2 win over Philadelphia.

According to multiple sources, Mats Zuccarello's KHL team Metallurg was eliminated from the playoffs today, meaning he is available for the Rangers to sign.

Well, it would be a lie to claim that it was the best, or best executed performance of the season for the Rangers. Sometimes you have to work with the hand you're dealt. The Rangers put in a performance tonight that the 2011-2012 team would have been proud of. The team put in a full 60 minute effort tonight, limiting mistakes and tempering frustration, which could have easily...
That is what the New York Rangers hope to do tonight on Long Island when they take on the New York Islanders.
The Blueshirts have won three straight games and have done so with timely goal scoring, solid defense and great goaltending from Henrik Lundqvist. Tonight against the Islanders, the Rangers will need those same three things to pick-up their fourth straight win.
