NY Rangers (43-21-12) at Boston (29-35-15) 2:00 pm EDT
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
