by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com

Brady Skjei said the Rangers came to Madison Square Garden with a chip on their collective shoulders following back-to-back losses over the weekend, and it showed with a convincing 5-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

Rick Nash broke out of a 12-game scoreless streak with a pair of goals and Paul Carey netted the team's first shorthanded tally of the year as the Blueshirts scored five unanswered goals and reached the five-goal mark in a game for the first time since Dec. 9.

Things looked bleak early after Jordan Weal put the Flyers ahead 1-0 just 2:06 into the contest.

Rangers Fall to Blackhawks for First Loss in 2018

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com

Henrik Lundqvist said there shouldn't have been an emotional hangover following Monday's Winter Classic. The points are too important for one.

But the Rangers struggled for long stretches in a 5-2 loss to the Blackhawks that was ballooned by two empty-net goals in the game's final minute.

"There should not be, at all," Lundqvist said when asked about any emotional issue at the start. "We need to understand the situation of where we are three games before the break, so that definitely should not be an excuse. We need to be ready to play."

Miller Lifts Rangers to Overtime Win in Winter Classic

Blueshirts 4-0 in Outdoor Games

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com

Wins have become a constant for the Rangers just as much as frigid temperatures, the sun and shadows whenever they play outdoors.

J.T. Miller made sure that would continue when he scored 2:43 into overtime to lift the Rangers to a 3-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres at the 10th annual NHL Winter Classic in Queens to keep the Blueshirts perfect at 4-0 in outdoor events.

"Obviously that's a pretty special feeling," Miller said. "That situation is pretty surreal. I feel super fortunate. It was an awesome game for our team. I think we had a good start tonight and to get it done in front of a lot of New Yorkers is pretty special."

Kreider Out with Upper-Body Injury

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com

Coach Alain Vigneault opted to surprisingly start goaltender Ondrej Pavelec against the Capitals, and it proved to be the right one as the netminder backstopped the Rangers to a 1-0 shootout victory against Washington Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden.

Pavelec made 30 saves through 65 minutes and stopped T.J. Oshie before Alex Ovechkin missed the net in the shootout. Both Mats Zuccarello and Mika Zibanejad scored in the skills competition to snap New York's two-game winless streak.

"After the break it wasn't easy for anybody and it feels good to come up with the two points," said Pavelec, who picked up his first shutout as a Ranger.

Rangers Head into Break With Loss to Leafs

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com

The Rangers pushed in the third period but could not overcome a two-goal deficit in a 3-2 loss to Toronto that sends them into the three-day Christmas break winless in their last two games.

"Whenever you have a little stretch like [this break], you always want to go into it on a positive note," said Rick Nash. "The last few games haven't been our best, but there's been a lot of hockey."

New York trailed by two goals heading into the third period before J.T. Miller scored at 11:25 off a no-look pass from Pavel Buchnevich.

Carey's Pair Leads Rangers to 4-1 Win Over Ducks

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com

Alain Vigneault had a lineup decision to make ahead of Tuesday's game against the Ducks.

With the return of Mika Zibanejad, a player from his fourth line would have to be scratched. He ultimately chose Boo Nieves, opting to keep both David Desharnais and Paul Carey dressed.

It paid off as Carey had first two-goal game of his NHL career while Desharnais picked up assists on both as New York disposed of Anaheim, 4-1, at Madison Square Garden.
