The Rangers look to build off Monday's big win over Carolina when they host the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins at Madison Square Garden.
Jimmy Vesey scored his first career hat trick, while Mats Zuccarello added two goals of his own, including his 100th career tally, in the team's 6-3 victory over the Hurricanes. Pavel Buchnevich and Mika Zibanejad had three assists each, while goaltender Alexandar Georgiev made 41 saves to record his second straight victory.
The netminder played well enough to get the start Wednesday night against the Penguins, his biggest test to date in the NHL.
New York lost defenseman Tony DeAngelo to an ankle injury and recalled Ryan Sproul on Tuesday as a replacement.
