Today's New York Rangers notes.

Harry How

It's been a while since the Rangers have been in action, and easy to forget the team has won its last two games (both on the road) and won four of its past five. The Rangers have been playing well of late, and will be tested Friday night as their road trip continues into Pittsburgh to take on the East leading Penguins. Here are your morning notes.
