Vigeanult juggling lines; Samuelsson family reunion; On the Rangers' future

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

Today's New York Rangers notes.

With an 82-game schedule, there are plenty of ups and downs to be had. While the Rangers recent losing skid has provided one of most difficult moments in the career of Henrik Lundqvist, and in recent memory for the Rangers, all is not lost. Wedensday night, the team will get a chance at coming away with a statement win at home versus the Penguins. The last time these two teams met (also in New York) it was the Rangers offense exploding for five goals. Hopefully, seeing that same sweater will spark something in the Rangers forwards again. Here are your morning notes.
