Henrik Lundqvist has a legitimate shot at doing something incredibly rare.

It requires a spectacular season in net, and a rare season when no skater has pushed to earn the Hart trophy. Hank already has the Vezina...

Late in the Rangers’ 2-0 win over the Devils Monday night, rookie left wing Carl Hagelin blocked a shot. Immediately, he reacted in pain, skating gingerly and looking to get off the ice quickly. The Garden crowd grew concerned. John Tortorella, however, laughed.
