Rangers, in tight playoff race, treasure extra point

Tuesday, 01.20.2015 / 11:59 PM / NHL Insider

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

NEW YORK -- The New York Rangers entered their game against the Ottawa Senators at Madison Square on Tuesday with 15 wins in 18 games. Considering such a run, one would think they would have created some separation in the Metropolitan Division.

Not a chance.

Not when their rival on the other side of the East River, the New York Islanders, has won seven of 10 and reeled off at least three wins in a row seven times this season. The Washington Capitals have earned at least one point in eight of their past 10. As long as Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are in the fold, the Rangers know it's difficult to envision the Pittsburgh Penguins going away anytime soon.

That's why it was crucial for the Rangers to overcome a sluggish start and earn a 3-2 overtime win against the Senators, capped by Carl Hagelin's goal at 2:55 of the extra period. It allowed the Rangers to move into a tie with the Penguins for second place in the Metropolitan, one point ahead of the Capitals.

The Rangers enter the All-Star break five points behind the Islanders, although they do have two games in hand. The bitter rivals will face each other at Nassau Coliseum when play resumes next Tuesday.

Fantasy top 100 forwards: Props to Caps' Backstrom

Tuesday, 01.20.2015 / 12:01 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Pete Jensen - NHL.com Fantasy Insider

Every Tuesday during the season, NHL.com fantasy hockey insider Pete Jensen will provide you with in-depth forward analysis. From updated weekly top 100 rankings to trending players and more, Jensen will be your go-to guy for fantasy forward advice all season long.

Washington Capitals forward Nicklas Backstrom has never been selected to an NHL All-Star Game, but his fantasy value should never be questioned.

Backstrom appears on 25.2 percent of this season’s top 500 Yahoo public-league teams, the fourth-highest frequency among forwards behind Filip Forsberg of the Nashville Predators, Nikita Kucherov of the Tampa Bay Lightning and Nick Foligno of the Columbus Blue Jackets. Which one is not like the others? Backstrom was drafted on average with the 68th pick in Yahoo drafts, while the other three were taken well outside the top 100.

So Backstrom, 27, has met expectations, yet is still fueling fantasy teams around the globe in a similar fashion as those who have caught everyone by surprise. Sounds like a pretty valuable guy.

Kylington rated top international draft prospect

Tuesday, 01.20.2015 / 11:00 AM / 2015 NHL Draft

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

The last time a European defenseman was selected before a forward in the first round of the NHL draft was three years ago, when the Anaheim Ducks selected defenseman Hampus Lindholm with the No. 6 pick of the 2012 NHL Draft.

Center Filip Forsberg was the next international skater selected that year, going No. 11 to the Washington Capitals.

Each player has paid off in a big way for their current teams. Lindholm has 47 points and a plus-41 rating in 121 games spanning two seasons with the Ducks. Forsberg, now starring for the Nashville Predators, is regarded by many as a top candidate for the Calder Trophy this season; he leads all NHL rookies in just about every offensive category.
