NEW YORK (AP) -- Brad Richards scored twice and Martin Biron, a last-minute replacement for Henrik Lundqvist, made 27 saves as the New York Rangers beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-2 on Tuesday. New York's top line had a stellar night. Marian Gaborik also scored and Carl Hagelin had a goal and assisted on both of Richards' goals as they combined for four goals and nine points. The Rangers took advantage of a soft part in the schedule to extend their winning streak to two after having dropped three in a row. The wins over the New York Islanders and the Hurricanes, two teams unlikely to make the playoffs, followed a three-game losing streak. The victory extended the Rangers lead in the Atlantic Division to six points over Pittsburgh.

Postgame: Rangers Earn Much Needed Overtime Win Over Isles

Exactly what the doctor ordered. The New York Rangers completely dominated the rival Islanders tonight at Madison Square Garden, doubling their opponent in shots in two of the three periods. In a perfect world, the Blueshirts would have ran away with this one in regulation. But, having lost three straight in regulation going into tonight's contest, a hard-working overtime...

Focus on the Now

This is what the New York Rangers need to do when it comes to tonight’s game with the Carolina Hurricanes at Madison Square Garden.

With Sidney Crosby announcing that he will definitely be in the lineup for that game, it would...

Chad Johnson called up

The Rangers have called up goaltender Chad Johnson from the CT Whale, likely to serve as the backup for tonight’s game. Henrik Lundqvist, who was not at the optional skate this morning (starting netminders rarely partake in these) is still likely to start. That means Martin Biron may have some sort of nagging issue that will keep him from dressing. No need to panic, this appears...

Again, the Rangers have recalled goaltender Chad Johnson. Johnson was recalled for Tuesday’s win against the Hurricanes, and served as the backup to Martin Biron, while Henrik Lundqvist was out with the flu.
