Today's New York Rangers notes

James Guillory-US PRESSWIRE

The Rangers are in a logjam of six Metropolitan Division teams fighting for two playoff spots. On Monday, one of those teams went into the Rangers home arena, and earned two points. Despite the fact that New York was able to salvage a point, these divisional games (especially the three point ones) usually have their way of coming back to bite you. Here are your morning notes.
