Rangers go for three in a row
The New York Rangers are playing without three of their top forwards. That hasn't stopped them from finding ways to win.

The Rangers come home to Madison Square Garden looking for their third win in a row when the New Jersey Devils come across the Hudson River for a 7 p.m. ET start. The Rangers won 2-1 at Toronto on Thursday and 3-2 at Boston on Saturday despite the absence of Marian Gaborik, Vaclav Prospal and Chris Drury.

The Devils will be trying to bounce back after taking a 6-1 pasting by the Buffalo Sabres at the Prudential Center on Saturday.

The Devils and Rangers play one of the three games on the NHL's Sunday schedule.

The evening's action starts an hour earlier when the Nashville Predators visit Tampa Bay. Nashville won 1-0 at Dallas on Saturday, while the Bolts are coming off a 5-2 win against Atlanta on Friday.

San Jose completes a two-game swing through Alberta when it visits Calgary for an 8 p.m. ET start. The Sharks won 6-1 at Edmonton on Saturday; the Flames are back home after a 6-2 victory at Columbus on Friday capped a 2-1-0 trip.
Quote of the Day

He's a special guy. Obviously we are lucky to have him. Just his talent, I'm not surprised anymore. You get to see this guy every practice, and you know what he's able to do. Obviously, it's pretty special for a guy that young to score a hat trick in playoffs, this type of a game too. Really happy for him.

— Predators goalie Pekka Rinne on Filip Forsberg, whose hat trick led Nashville to a Game 5 win vs. Chicago on Thursday
