Rangers Beat Penguins, Move Into 7th [David Stefanini]

The New York Rangers are one of the hottest teams in the NHL right now. This is very familiar to what the New Jersey Devils did at the end regular season last season. The Rangers are 7-1-3 in their last 11 games. Just a month ago they seemed as if they were on their way out of playoff contention, but this recent surge has put them right back into the thick of things. They are currently in 7th position, but they can move into 6th spot by Wednesday if everything goes in their favor as it has been the past month.

Last night was a thrilling game to watch. The defense that the Rangers played like something they haven't done in many years. They found a way to silence the East's hottest team, the Penguins, and then found a way to score with 33 seconds to go. Maybe they didn't find a way to score and it was divine intervention, but whatever the case may be they won the game and that's all that matters to them.

The Rangers are going to keep this hot streak going this week with games against Philly, Boston and the Islanders.
