The New York Rangers are the hottest team in hockey and will hope to continue that momentum at the expense of their nearest rival when they cross boroughs to visit the New York Islanders on Thursday night.
The surging Rangers are perfect in February, improving to 6-0-0 following Monday's 3-2 victory at Columbus.
“We're doing a lot of good things each game and playing really good defensively and keeping our scoring chances down resulting in some wins," defenseman Dan Girardi said after the Rangers were victorious in the first of three straight games against Metropolitan Division rivals.
The Islanders were on a tear of their own before absorbing a 7-1 drubbing at Toronto, a loss that prevented them from moving leapfrogging the Maple Leafs for the second wild card in the Eastern Conference.
