Rangers Top Preds at The Garden

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com

The Rangers topped the defending Western Conference champion Nashville Predators, 4-2, Saturday night at Madison Square Garden.

"You definitely enjoy winning, and we haven't been doing that a lot," Kevin Hayes said after scoring the game-winning goal 12:46 into the second period that put the Rangers ahead by two. "Hopefully it's a springboard into a lot more."

While no game is perfect, the Rangers were satisfied with their play against a Nashville team that entered the game 4-0-1 in its last five games, especially early with two goals in the first period, with the first coming from Jesper Fast, who followed Hayes into Nashville's zone on a breakaway and buried home the loose puck after No. 13 was initially stopped.

Garden Of Dreams Makes Two Youngsters' Day With Rangers Unforgettable

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com

Bonds are forged through good and bad experiences, and sometimes a balance of both.
 
The Morgan Center, a pre-kindergarten program for children with cancer, brought Johnny Higgins and Anthony Gregoretti together when the Long Islanders were three years old.  
 
But it was a love of hockey, especially the Rangers, that created a friendship that has helped both get through the good times and the bad. Johnny and Anthony, who are both treated at Cohen Children's Medical Center, a Garden of Dreams partner organization in Queens, first connected with the New York Rangers through the Garden of Dreams.

Rangers Rally for Point in Shootout Loss to Islanders

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com

The Rangers rallied from two-goals down in the third period but fell to the Islanders, 4-3, in a shootout Thursday night at Madison Square Garden.

Mats Zuccarello and Kevin Hayes scored in the third period, but Jordan Eberle and John Tavares each beat Henrik Lundqvist in the shootout to deny the Rangers of their second win of the season.

"We buckled down," coach Alain Vigneault said. "Our guys worked extremely hard. Maybe our execution may not be perfect, but the work ethic in that room and the commitment to try and play the right way is there. I'm a firm believer in that if you prepare, work hard, things are going to fall into place.
