Rangers unveil 2018 Winter Classic uniform

by NHL.com @NHL / http://www.newyorkrangers.com

The New York Rangers unveiled their uniform for the 2018 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic against the Buffalo Sabres on Jan. 1 (1 p.m. ET; NBC, SN, TVA Sports, NHL.TV). Their Original Six heritage, their 90-plus years of history in New York and the intrastate rivalry with the Sabres served as key influences in the design.

The jersey features the Rangers' color scheme of red, white and blue, though navy blue replaces their traditional royal blue as a nod to the roots of the game outdoors. The stairstep font is inspired by the diagonal "RANGERS" lettering worn in the late 1920s. The red "NY" is a tribute to the intrastate rivalry with the Sabres.

Rangers Surge into Thanksgiving With 6-1 Win Over Hurricanes

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com

Before giving thanks on Thursday, the Ranges had one more piece of business to take care of when they routed the Hurricanes, 6-1, Wednesday night in Raleigh for their eighth win in their last 10 games.

Chris Kreider and Jesper Fast each scored twice and Henrik Lundqvist made 32 saves for his 10th win of the season.

The Blueshirts jumped out to the lead just 52 seconds into the contest when Brendan Smith drew Carolina's defense and goaltender Scott Darling out of position. Smith hit Kreider in the slot, who buried the shot for his sixth goal of the season.

"It's happened to us a lot early in the season," Kreider said of what an early goal does to the opposition. "It's hard. We've had some good starts and that definitely gives you a leg up."

Nieves Adjusting Well to NHL With Rangers

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com

Boo Nieves said he knew it would be difficult to match his offensive production from his first game of the year, when he registered three assists in his second career NHL match.

But that's not the goal. Instead, the 2012 second-round pick is focused on the small details of his game to stick around in the NHL for an extended period of time.

"I'm starting to feel more confident," Nieves told NYRangers.com on Tuesday. "Seven or eight games is a good amount of hockey in terms of finding your role and seeing where you're at in this league and I feel like I've adjusted pretty well.

The Rangers and Hurricanes do battle for the first of four times this season when the two squads clash in Raleigh on the night before Thanksgiving.

With McDonagh out, Steven Kampfer will rejoin the lineup and be slotted on a pair with Marc Staal. Brendan Smith, meanwhile, took McDonagh's spot alongside Nick Holden.

Ronning Not Focused on Numbers During 10-Game Goal Streak

Rangers Prospect Has Sights Set on Playoffs With Vancouver of WHL

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com

Ty Ronning has 13 goals during his current 10-game goal streak that's given him 23 total in 23 games thus far with the Vancouver Giants of the Western Hockey League. 

He's two shy of his total from a year ago with 45 games to spare. He's leading his team with 34 points and is a plus-player for the first time in his junior career. 

But he's not interested in personal achievements.

"I haven't really been focusing on it to be honest," Ronning told NYRangers.com in a phone interview Sunday. "I've been focusing on trying to win games and play the right way.

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com

The Rangers, on the strength of their penalty kill, edged the Ottawa Senators, 3-0, Sunday night at Madison Square Garden.

Kevin Hayes, Michael Grabner and Mika Zibanejad scored while Henrik Lundqvist built off his strong performance Friday night in Columbus, though this time he was on the right side of the decision, and stopped all 20 shots he faced for his second shutout of the season.

With a 2-0 lead midway through the third and after killing a pair of penalties over the first two periods, New York's penalty kill was relied on again to kill a five-minute major assessed to Brendan Smith, who was also ejected from the game following a hit to Mark Borowiecki 7:32 into the third period.

Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault confirmed David Desharnais would be a healthy scratch for the first time this season when the Rangers host the Ottawa Senators tonight at The Garden.

Paul Carey will rejoin the lineup, while J.T. Miller will slide from wing to center to replace Desharnais down the middle.

"I want to put JT in the middle tonight, so I decided to take Davey out," Vigneault said following the morning skate. "[Desharnais has] been working hard and he's been playing all right, but for tonight, I think that's the best way to go."
