Today's New York Rangers notes.

Bruce Bennett

The Rangers are over a major hump. Wednesday's matchup (and win) over the Flyers was the team's last divisional game of the season. And with eight remaining to play before the playoffs, the Rangers only have three teams on the schedule with records above .500. Putting it plainly, a rolling Rangers team will have a chance to gain some more momentum and footing as the season winds down. Here are your morning notes.
