The New York Rangers host the New Jersey Devils in this week's featured NHL game of the week. This Atlantic Division showdown has all the makings of a classic as these two teams are both in the hunt for the division title. The Rangers used a 9-1 streak in late December and early January to vault to the top of the division standings ahead of Philadelphia, New Jersey and Pittsburgh. In fact, the streak also propelled them to the top of the NHL standings overall, and their strong defensive play has been the key to their success. Ranking only behind Boston in goals allowed, the Rangers are giving up just over two goals per game while staying in the top ten in the league in scoring. No wonder this team is on a roll. Leading the Rangers offensively are Marian Gaborik, Brad Richards and Ryan Callahan. As for the Devils, this club is on the rise with Patrik Elias leading the team in scoring and team captain Zach Parise, Ilya Kovalchuk and Calder Trophy candidate Adam Henrique just a couple points behind. This is a team that can score from anywhere and in the "Battle of the Hudson" this promises to be an intense matchup.

Somewhere New York Ranger GM Glen Sather is looking at all the reported rumors about what he's going to do before the NHL trade deadline and having a pretty good laugh. We can say that because we have to wonder who exactly is spreading the information from the Ranger side.

Bauer Equipment posted this pic of Henrik Lundqvist's new mask on their Facebook page which he debuted Tuesday night in Pittsburgh......i thought he looked different.

I've done some pretty amazing things since creating The New York Rangers Blog, including raising $7,000 in memory of Derek Boogaard and making a serious run at getting Sean Avery into the All Star Game. But every once in a while something happens that gives me a moment of pause and that happened this morning.I opened up the Wall Street Journal and there it was, a quote of mine...

The New York Rangers have an ample cushion atop the Eastern Conference, but coach John Tortorella's focus is on turning around a sluggish stretch and not on where his team sits in the standings.
