The sizzling New York Rangers steam into Philadelphia to renew their long and often bitter rivalry with the Flyers on Friday.The Rangers John Hayden Jersey , who are supposed to be in a rebuild, have won three straight and are 9-1-1 in their last 11 games. They have outscored the opposition 11-3 in the three games, beating the New York Islanders 5-0 Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden.That win ended an eight-game losing streak against the Islanders, pulled the Rangers (12-8-2) into a tie for first place in the Metropolitan Division.Article continues below ...“It was getting a little ridiculous,” Marc Staal said of ending the streak. “Obviously that building is a lot different. But the fact that we couldn’t even win (more than once) in our own building? They’re supposed to be one our biggest rivals, and to keep laying eggs, it wasn’t sitting well.”Henrik Lundqvist, who was chased in a 7-5 loss in Brooklyn last week, sat it out Wednesday — rookie Alex Georgiev spinning the shutout. Lundqvist is 35-16-4 with a 2.50 goals-against average and .917 save percentage lifetime against the Flyers, who tote a four-game losing streak into this matinee and are one point from then bottom of the Eastern Conference.“It’s frustrating and we need to wake up,” Flyers captain Claude Giroux said after his team allowed four goals in the first period and fell 5-2 in Buffalo on Wednesday night.“We didn’t do enough in the first 10 minutes to give our goaltender (Alex Lyon, in his first NHL start of the season) a chance to get into this hockey game,” Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said the loss. “On the flip side, he didn’t give us a (big) save early on Authentic Jonathan Toews Jersey , either. The two go hand in hand.”The Flyers (9-10-2) have scored eight goals during their 0-3-1 stretch, scoring eight goals in the four games — five of those coming in one game, a 6-5 overtime loss.The Rangers have had no such problems — especially against the rival Isles.“I think eventually when you lose so often to someone, eventually you’re going to win one. Odds were just in our favor,” rookie coach David Quinn said. “And when you do breakthrough and win a game, it usually happens like that.”Cody MacLeod scored his first goal as a Ranger as part of an early three-goal assault, but then broke his left hand in a fight with Ross Johnston. His toughness has been greatly appreciated by his new team and he is out indefinitely.Mats Zuccarello, who missed his third straight game with a lower body injury, hopes to return for Friday’s game.The Flyers recalled winger Tyrell Goulbourne from the Philly Phantoms and sent Nic Aube Kubel back to the AHL team Thursday.With Brian Elliott hurt, Cal Pickard, who replaced Lyon after Lyon allowed four goals on 12 shots, is the likely starter Friday. He is 3-1-2 with 4.13/.858 numbers on the year, has allowed nine goals on 66 shots in losing his two career starts against the Rangers.Lundqvist, 8-6-2 with a 2.61 GAA and .919 save percentage on the year Blake Comeau Jersey Womens , defeated the Dallas Stars 2-1 Monday night for his 500th career victory, counting playoffs. He also moved into sole possession of seventh place on the all-time regular season wins list, with 439. He needs seven more to pass Terry Sawchuk for sixth on the list. WASHINGTON — After years of carrying the weight of unfulfilled expectations on their shoulders, Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals traded it in for the weight of the actual Stanley Cup, which they paraded around the Las Vegas ice after a 4-3 win in Game 5 of the finals in June.On Wednesday night, the Capitals will raise a banner to the Capital One Arena rafters and begin their title defense against the Boston Bruins.While their roster is mostly unchanged, new coach Todd Reirden will make his debut. After four years as Barry Trotz’s top assistant, Reirden ascended when Trotz stepped down and ultimately took the New York Islanders’ top job.Article continues below ...Ovechkin, who recently turned 33, scored 87 points (49 goals) in the regular season and added 27 points (15 goals) in 24 postseason games as he finally put to rest questions about his ability to lead a team to the Cup.“It looks like he’s in the best mode ever,” center Nicklas Backstrom told the Washington Post. “He’s just laughing all the time, which is great. He’s going to carry this over, I think.”Washington will likely open without top-line winger Tom Wilson, who was ejected from Sunday’s preseason finale against the St. Louis Blues for an illegal check on Oskar Sundqvist Patrick Kane Jersey , who lay motionless before being helped from the ice. Wilson was slated for an in-person hearing with the NHL’s Department of Player Safety on Wednesday.Wilson’s absence combined with several injuries led the Capitals to claim forward Dmitrij Jaskin off waivers from the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday. Jaskin, 25, totaled six goals and 11 assists in 76 games last season.“We like the player,” general manager Brian MacLellan told the Washington Post. “We think the player has some upside and with the possible suspension of Tom we’re adding a big body that can make some plays and go to the net and has a similar skill set as Tom.”Washington has won 12 straight regular-season games in four seasons against Boston.After starting 6-7-4 last season, the Bruins soared to a 50-20-12 record, good for second place in the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference. They defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs in seven games in the first round but fell to the Tampa Bay Lightning in five games in the Eastern Conference semifinals.The Bruins’ success was a bit ahead of schedule as they boast one of the youngest rosters in the league.Boston will be missing a key player in the opener as well. Defenseman Torey Krug injured his left ankle in the final preseason game. He’s in a walking boot and will be evaluated in three weeks. Krug had 59 points (14 goals, 45 assists) in 76 games last season.“It’s a big loss,” center Patrice Bergeron told the Boston Herald. “He’s a huge part of our defense, power play as well. He’s the quarterback up there. We’re going to miss him. That being said, it’s an opportunity for someone else to step up and be good for us.”
