BOSTON (Ticker) -- The New York Rangers look to creep closer to an Atlantic Division title when they visit the last-place Boston Bruins on Saturday.

The Rangers own a five-point lead over Philadelphia (41-23-11), which has a game in hand, but plays four of its last five games on the road this season, including Saturday's affair.

Following a three-game losing streak, New York has won four of its last five contests, including Thursday's 3-1 victory over the New York Islanders. Martin Straka scored twice for the Rangers, who are still without rookie goalie Henrik Lundqvist because of a sore hip.

The Bruins are tied with the Islanders for the second-fewest points (71) in the Eastern Conference. However, Boston is coming off a 3-2 shootout victory over Toronto on Thursday despite giving up the game-tying goal with 19 seconds left in regulation.
