The Rangers Tribune:
Well 2-1-2 looks a whole lot better than 0-1-2, doesn't it? With tonight's 3-2 overtime win over the Calgary Flames, the Rangers have now won back-to-back games and are undefeated midway through their western Canada road trip. After a shaky start, the Blueshirts are on their way to erasing what was a not-so-great effort in the first three games of the season with continuous wins, and could potentially return home to New York next Thursday with a 4-1-2 record. Now that's what I call a turnaround.
Both the Rangers and Flames came out skating in this game, showing their desperation for points in the standings with this being a match against a club of the opposite Conference. The Rangers struck first when they earned their first goal on the powerplay this season. Derek Stepan made a beautiful pass to Marian Gaborik in the high slot, who managed to get off a one-timer despite being surrounded by Flames to give New York an early 1-0 advantage. Stellar vision from Step, but ...

In the New York Post, Larry Brooks thinks that tonight will be that...
The Rangers won their second straight game on their Canada road trip, topping Calgary in overtime 3-2 on a Ryan McDonagh goal with less than a second remaining. McDonagh won it, but it was Henrik Lundqvist who stopped a Calgary onslaught in the third period to keep the game tied. Let’s get to those bullet points.
Lundqvist had his second straight ridiculous game. Sure, he didn’t...
After spending most of his hockey career with the Rangers, Sean Avery has decided that New York is the only destination he would want to resume his NHL career in. Avery was placed on waivers ealier this month by New York. The 31 year old has one year remaining on his contract which features an expensive cap hit of 3.88 million.

Ryan McDonagh scored with 1.8 seconds left in overtime to
give the New York Rangers their second straight win. McDonagh’s goal was started by a great rush
by Brandon Dubinsky into and battle to maintain possession in the zone and Dan
Girardi while be pressured at the point fired wide and the puck bounced off the
back wall to McDonagh who fired it in for the win.

Defenseman Ryan McDonagh scored with 2 seconds remaining in overtime to give the New York Rangers a 3-2 victory over the Calgary Flames on Thursday night.
One would think, based on Tuesday nights game against the Canucks, that Lundqvist would be the hands-down, no questions asked the Player of the Week. Or after Thursday’s OT game winner against the Flames, it would be Ryan McDonagh. Heck, I even thought about giving it to the Broadway Hat. But, I decided to go [...]
