A preview of the Rangers.

Record: 37-26-9

Leading Scorer: Scott Gomez, 67 points (16 goals, 51 assists)

Last Game: 3-0 loss at Tampa Bay Saturday.

Last Game Against The Penguins: 4-1 loss in Pittsburgh Jan. 14.

Rangers Player We Would Bet Money On Scoring: Gomez. We don't have the numbers in front of us, but we're pretty sure he's the all-time leading scorer against the Penguins among players of Hispanic descent that are from Alaska. Just a hunch.

Ex-Penguins: Michal Roszival, Jaromir Jagr, Martin Straka, Rick Kehoe, professional scout.

Useless Rangers Trivia: The Rangers and the Islanders have not made a trade since November 14, 1972 during the Islanders' inaugural season. Center Ron Stewart was sent to the Islanders in exchange for cash.

Best Rangers YouTube Video We Could Find: Jason Strudwick has a sweet moustache.

(Kudos to EN reader Elizabeth Krenzelok of Upper St. Clair for the find.)

NOTES:

-Ty Conklin gets the start.

-Hope you don't mind New York teams.

-The Rangers are riding a two-games losing streak.

-New York is having some power-play problems.
