Rangers prepare to take on former teammates in Tampa

 

 Henrik Lundqvist admitted that it will be more than a little strange to see so many friends and former teammates coming at him wearing Tampa Bay Lightning uniforms Thursday night.,In the moments after the Rangers’ 3-0 home loss Tuesday to the Winnipeg Jets

 

“I thought about it today, Anton Stralman and Ryan McDonagh when the Rangers visit the Lightning. “It popped into my head. It’ll be weird to see all these guys together. We will think about it,[url=http://www.lightningofficialhockey.com/adidas-steven-stamkos-jersey]adidas Steven Stamkos jersey[/url], Ryan Callahan, actually,[url=http://www.capitalshockeyshop.com/adidas-philipp-grubauer-jersey]Authentic Philipp Grubauer jersey[/url], especially in warmups. Then,’’ Lundqvist said of playing against former Rangers J.T. Miller,[url=http://www.hockeyjetsshop.com/adidas-michael-hutchinson-jersey]adidas Michael Hutchinson jersey[/url], Dan Girardi, when the game starts we’ll be OK.’’

 

The Rangers declared their intention to rebuild the team with a Feb. 8 letter to the fans and then traded away several veterans over the last few weeks. Defenseman Nick Holden was the first to go, and Michael Grabner was next, in a deal that brought back Ryan Spooner and a first round pick,[url=http://www.bluesofficialhockey.com/adidas-jake-allen-jersey]adidas Jake Allen jersey[/url], moving up to Boston, and finally, Miller and McDonagh went to the Lightning at the Feb. 26 trade deadline in exchange for two prospects, going to the Devils. Rick Nash was also traded to the Bruins, two first-round picks, and forward Vladislav Namestnikov.

 

 Lundqvist said,After that last trade, the veteran players were able to make their peace with their new reality and moved on., when the remaining Rangers knew this would be their team for the rest of the season

 

“Of course, you can’t be stuck in the past. You’ve got to mentally just move forward, you miss [former teammates] being in the room, and I think [after the trade with Tampa Bay] was the time where everybody kind, and making a difference for us,’’ Lundqvist said. “But you have to look forward, ‘It’s done now. Focus on the next game.’ ’’

 

Playing as though a burden had been lifted from their shoulders,[url=http://www.bluesofficialhockey.com/adidas-jake-allen-jersey]Authentic Jake Allen jersey[/url], before losing to the Jets Tuesday in their return home., the Rangers then went out to win all three games of their Western Canada trip

 

 scoring two goals with three assists in four games. He had a goal and an assist in Tampa Bay’s 5-4 overtime win over Florida on Tuesday. McDonagh,[url=http://www.lightningofficialhockey.com/adidas-steven-stamkos-jersey]Authentic Steven Stamkos jersey[/url],Tampa Bay has the best record in the league and Miller has fit right in, who was the Rangers’ captain, has been out with a hand injury,[url=http://www.capitalshockeyshop.com/adidas-nicklas-backstrom-jersey]adidas Nicklas Backstrom jersey[/url], and has not yet played for the Lightning and is unlikely to play against the Rangers.

 

 and still the 19-year-old Finnish star is on a remarkable pace.,Patrik Laine went more than a year between hat tricks

 

 lifting the Winnipeg Jets over the New York Rangers 3-0 on Tuesday night.,[url=http://www.hockeyjetsshop.com/adidas-michael-hutchinson-jersey]Authentic Michael Hutchinson jersey[/url],Laine got his fourth hat trick and set a career high with his 38th goal

 

The 19-year-old star had been the youngest ever with three hat tricks — getting there at 18 years, 302 days — but it had been over a year since his last three-goal game.[url=http://www.capitalshockeyshop.com/adidas-nicklas-backstrom-jersey]Authentic Nicklas Backstrom jersey[/url], He joins Jimmy Carson and Dale Hawerchuk as the only players with four hat tricks before turning 20.

 

Laine has at least a point in nine straight games (13 goals, six assists) and has scored multiple goals in four of his past five contests. He's two goals behind Washington's Alex Ovechkin for the NHL lead this season.

 

Laine has taken off since being put on a line with Nikolaj Ehlers and Paul Stastny.

 

"Our line is playing pretty good hockey,[url=http://www.hockeyjetsshop.com/adidas-connor-hellebuyck-jersey]adidas Connor Hellebuyck jersey[/url]," Laine said.

 

 1944,Laine is the first visiting teenager with a hat trick at Madison Square Garden since Toronto's Ted Kennedy on Dec. 27, according to Sportsnet Stats.

 

Steve Mason made 31 saves as the Jets extended their winning streak to three. Winnipeg has earned points in seven straight road games (6-0-1) and improved to 14-6-5 against the Eastern Conference.

 

" Jets coach Paul Maurice said. "He had a couple of tough ones early, a couple of squeezers right around the net that he made a good save on, and then a lot of what came to him,"He didn't get overworked, he saw clean, so it was a good start for sure."

 

Henrik Lundqvist made his 798th career appearance and stopped 31 shots as the Rangers lost for the first time in four games. Lundqvist made 50 saves in each of his previous two games.

 

 we tried hard and tried battling back in the third,[url=http://www.capitalshockeyshop.com/adidas-philipp-grubauer-jersey]adidas Philipp Grubauer jersey[/url],"At the end of the night," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. "That's a real good team we played tonight and they were able to get their best shooter to get a few good looks."

 

Laine opened the scoring by putting a wrist shot past Lundqvist at 19:05 of the first period. He added on midway through the second period when he snapped off another wrist shot, then scored into an empty net with 34 seconds left.

 

 the third overall pick of the 2016 draft,Laine, scored 36 goals in his rookie season. He leads the NHL in goals since entering the league with 74. Ovechkin and Tampa Bay's Nikita Kucherov each have 73.

 

Mason made his first appearance since Jan. 9th, when he was sidelined with a concussion. The veteran will play important minutes down the stretch as Winnipeg looks to lighten Connor Hellebuyck's workload before the playoffs. The franchise hopes to win a playoff series for the first time in its history.

 

Winnipeg teammates Mark Schiefele and Blake Wheeler collided in the first period. Schiefele initially returned to action but was later ruled out for the game with an upper-body injury. His last shift ended with 3:58 remaining in the second period.

 

League-leading Tampa Bay had 17 shots on goal before the Rangers got their first nearly 11 minutes into the game. Lundqvist kept New York’s deficit to 2-0 through one period but was pulled after allowing two more goals in the second period.

 

 playing his fourth career game, helped the Lightning improve to 8-0-1 in their last nine games. Adam Erne, Cedric Paquette. Tyler Johnson and Chris Kunitz also scored,Cirelli, and Andrei Vasilevskiy made 27 saves for his league-leading 40th victory,[url=http://www.hockeyjetsshop.com/adidas-connor-hellebuyck-jersey]Authentic Connor Hellebuyck jersey[/url], which ties the franchise record.

 

The Lightning remained six points ahead of Boston for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference.
