After defeating the Vancouver Canucks by the score of 7-2 earlier this morning, New York has extended their winning streak to three games, and have won eight of their last nine. With a meeting against Columbus looming on Friday night, the team will rest up for the next few days before taking on John Tortorella and his Blue Jackets. Here's today's news and links:
