Rangers brace for rematch with Hurricanes

Because of an odd scheduling quirk, the New York Rangers and Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday afternoon will meet at Madison Square Garden for the second time in five days.

The Rangers rallied from a 2-0 deficit to beat the Hurricanes 3-2 on Tuesday behind a goal and an assist from left winger Rick Nash. There was no momentum carried into New York's next game in Buffalo, as the Sabres won 4-3 to prevent the Rangers from winning consecutive games for the first time in more than two weeks.

What has been the biggest problem for the Rangers over the first two months? Oddly, it hasn't been offense, as the team is averaging a league-best 3.64 goals-per game. Instead, it's been goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, whose .914 save percentage would be his lowest since 2007-08.
