After getting off to a tough start this season (shades of 2013-14), the Rangers are now winners of three straight, and are above .500 for the first time since the season opener. New York earned a big two points last night, which we'll get to momentarily. No hockey now until Saturday, so there will be plenty to digest and dissect until then. For now, here are your morning notes.
Two points, on the road, against a divisional and geographical rival is now easy thing to come by. Add in the Rangers trailed by two goals in the third period Tuesday night against the Devils, and an overtime victory is a pretty big achievement. Some recaps of the game.

He wasn't a marquee free agent signing this summer, but Lee Stempniak is certainly finding a home early into his New York tenure. [The Record]
