Bantering Points: 3/26/17

News and notes for Sunday, March 26th, 2017

The Rangers started their road trip off on the right foot earlier today, as Antti Raanta pitched a shutout en route to dethroning the Kings by a margin of 3-0. But with a second game in less than 24 hours tonight in Anaheim against the Ducks, the team will have little time to celebrate the victory, as Henrik Lundqvist will return from his lower-body injury tonight. Here are today's news and links:
