but status against Panthers is unknown,Chris Kreider practices

 

The forward missed the final two periods of Thursday night’s 5-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning after taking a hit to the head near the end of the first period. Coach Alain Vigneault said after the game that Kreider had passed the concussion protocol test and was held out as a precaution. He was cleared to practice Friday, Vigneault declared him “50-50’’ to play Saturday., and afterward

 

“We want to see how he reacts’’ after practicing, and that’s what we’re doing.’’, Vig neault said. “He seemed fine today. You never know with these things. I think everybody in today’s game is going on the safe side

 

 but moved around,Kreider didn’t skate with his regular linemates, Mika Zibanejad and Pavel Buchnevich, he playfully bumped (softly) into defenseman John Gilmour and laughed as teammates do when they are horsing around in practice., playing with several different players. At one point

 

 and when asked if he expects to play Saturday,In the locker room afterward, Kreider joked with teammates and reporters. He said he felt fine, “Hopefully.’’, he said

Vigneault said Henrik Lundqvist, will start against Florida., who was pulled from Thursday’s game after giving up four goals on 31 shots

 

The Lightning 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.

Tyler Johnson and Chris Kunitz also scored, playing his fourth career game, which ties the franchise record.,[url=http://www.lightningofficialhockey.com/adidas-steven-stamkos-jersey]Authentic Steven Stamkos jersey[/url], helped the Lightning improve to 8-0-1 in their past nine games. Adam Erne, and Andrei Vasilevskiy made 27 saves for his league-leading 40th victory

 

” Kunitz said. “We’ve got new guys in the lineup and everybody’s been contributing and that’s a sign of a good team. We just have to keep growing these last fifteen games and keep getting better.”,“We keep growing as a team

 

“We’re trying to worry about our game and what we can do every game, a tough season. … We’re trying to go out there with the mindset to win games and battle.”,[url=http://www.capitalshockeyshop.com/adidas-nicklas-backstrom-jersey]adidas Nicklas Backstrom jersey[/url],” New York center Mika Zibanejad said. “It’s been a tough stretch

 

 who made 13 saves.,Lundqvist made 27 saves before being replaced by Alexander Georgiev

 

” New York coach Alain Vigneault said. “They came at us with speed and skill. We had a real hard time following the pace. There’s no doubt they dominated us.”,“That’s the hardest a team has come at us all year long

 

Paquette and Erne scored during Tampa Bay’s dominant first period, Kunitz chased Lundqvist and Johnson got to Georgiev to make it 5-1 by the end of the period.,[url=http://www.hockeyjetsshop.com/adidas-michael-hutchinson-jersey]Authentic Michael Hutchinson jersey[/url], and Cirelli made it 3-0 just 1:53 into the second. After Spooner cut it to 3-1

 

Nobody needed to see a matchup between the Rangers and Lightning to grasp the current gulf between the two franchises. The standings and the blockbuster trade between the two teams, provided overwhelming evidence., the rebuilding Rangers dealing their captain to stock up for the future while boosting Tampa Bay's Stanley Cup hopes

 

The Rangers' loss Thursday in Tampa, did underscore that great gap. It was every bit as humbling for the Blueshirts as their three-game sweep through Western Canada was uplifting., however

 

" Mats Zuccarello said after the team atop the NHL standings had their way with the Rangers through 40 minutes.,[url=http://www.hockeyjetsshop.com/adidas-connor-hellebuyck-jersey]adidas Connor Hellebuyck jersey[/url],"In the first two periods you saw the difference between a bottom team and a top team

 

 which began last summer, eight of them against teams currently in the playoffs and the next Saturday night against the surging Panthers. There are certainly more tough nights ahead, was dialed up to 11 ahead of the trade deadline and shall continue this offseason. Fourteen games remain, Dan Girardi and J.T. Miller.,This is the uncomfortable bridge the Rangers have to cross between Phases II and III of their rebuild, and the Blueshirts will see the NHL-best Lightning again in their home finale on March 30, which will mark the first game at the Garden as visitors for Ryan McDonagh

 

 it can't get much worse than it was in Thursday's first period when the Lightning had 17 shots and two goals before the Blueshirts finally put a shot on net.,Fortunately for the Rangers

 

"Starting with myself," Kevin Hayes said. "We've all got to be professionals and prepare the right way and be prepared for puck drop.", in that first everyone needed to play better. And I was leading the pack with not playing great in the first

 

 but the silver lining for the organization in losing is the potential to increase their odds of a high selection via the draft lottery. Entering Friday the Rangers sat 24th overall. Finishing eighth-worst in the league would give them an 18.3 percent chance at a top-three draft choice and a 5.8 percent chance at the No. 1 pick. Detroit entered its Friday night matchup with Columbus three points behind the Blueshirts with a game in hand.,The players can't appreciate this as they toil through to the end of the season

 

 their odds at securing a top-three pick would creep beyond 25 percent.,If the Rangers slipped into the bottom-five

 

The Winnipeg Jets winger might not keep track of each time Alex Ovechkin or Evgeni Malkin scores, but he knows how many goals they have.

 

"I just sometimes look at the scoreboard and the score sheets," Laine said. "I always pretty much know where's everyone at."

 

Laine and Ovechkin went into their showdown Monday night tied at 40 goals. Ovechkin scored twice and Laine once to keep the race for the Rocket Richard Trophy and pursuit of 50 goals red hot in the NHL's stretch run.

 

 Laine is a real threat to win his first goal-scoring title,At 19 years old, while Ovechkin at 32 is seeking his eighth 50-goal season and seventh Rocket Richard.

 

"Most great goal-scorers," Capitals owner Ted Leonsis said. "It's very, when they're in their early 20s is when they're putting up all their big numbers, very unique and unusual for a player of Alex's vintage to be staring 50 goals in the face."

 

The goals race comes down to Ovechkin and Malkin — the Nos. 1 and 2 picks from 2004 — and Laine, the second selection in 2016 who has shown he deserves to be in the conversation for the best goal-scorer in hockey today.

 

"He's got a gift for scoring goals, 70 percent chance he's going to put it in the back of the net. I've never played with anyone like that — that dangerous," Jets defenseman Ben Chiarot said. "It's even more profound that you look for him in the offensive zone because if he gets the puck — it's crazy to say — it's like a 60, that lethal."

 

 Steven Stamkos,Winnipeg teammates aren't shy to say Laine's abilities are "Ovechkin-like" because Laine is scoring as a teenager the way only the Washington Capitals superstar, Auston Matthews and Ilya Kovalchuk have over the past two decades. Ovechkin is no doubt the greatest goal-scorer of this generation and on Monday became the fourth-fastest player in league history to 600.

 

Capitals coach Barry Trotz thinks 50 is a more important milestone for his Russian winger given his recent trajectory.

 

"The 600 will be something he'll have forever,[url=http://www.capitalshockeyshop.com/adidas-philipp-grubauer-jersey]Authentic Philipp Grubauer jersey[/url]," Trotz said. "I think the way he looks at it, but I think he'll put a lot of pride if he can get 50 this year, it's so hard to do and he had a down year (last season). He wants to show that he can still do it."

 

Ovechkin soaked up 600 quickly and is now eight away from 50 with 13 games to go.

 

"It would be pretty amazing and pretty unbelievable, a little bit of help from upstairs,[url=http://www.bluesofficialhockey.com/adidas-jake-allen-jersey]adidas Jake Allen jersey[/url], and (with) a little bit of luck,[url=http://www.capitalshockeyshop.com/adidas-nicklas-backstrom-jersey]Authentic Nicklas Backstrom jersey[/url]," Ovechkin said. "I still have time, I don't know, we'll see."

 

Like Ovechkin,[url=http://www.lightningofficialhockey.com/adidas-steven-stamkos-jersey]adidas Steven Stamkos jersey[/url],[url=http://www.capitalshockeyshop.com/adidas-philipp-grubauer-jersey]adidas Philipp Grubauer jersey[/url], Laine said scoring down the stretch is important for team goals and he has certainly helped the Jets. Laine has scored 16 goals in his past 12 games

 

The most prolific young Finn since Teemu Selanne said winning the Rocket Richard Trophy has always been a dream, and now 50 is in reach as he clicks with linemates Nikolai Ehlers and Paul Stastny.

 

"You never know what's going to happen, I was at 25 and nobody was talking about even 40. There's a lot of things that could happen. If we're playing like this with Niky and Paul," Laine said. "Ten games ago,[url=http://www.hockeyjetsshop.com/adidas-connor-hellebuyck-jersey]Authentic Connor Hellebuyck jersey[/url], why not?"

 

Ovechkin already has nine more goals than he put up all last season. Only Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Marcel Dionne have scored 40 goals in a season more times than Ovechkin.

 

"I don't think people understand how hard that is to do," Toronto Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri said. "He makes it seem so effortless. He's got a very special shot."

 

Jets center Andrew Copp wondered if Laine's shot is even more special than Ovechkin's. Copp hasn't seen Laine score from the center red line yet but joked,[url=http://www.hockeyjetsshop.com/adidas-michael-hutchinson-jersey]adidas Michael Hutchinson jersey[/url], "I'm sure that day will come."

 

"Ovi's got a big, it's almost like he's throwing darts at the net, winding up wrister and it comes off just kind of so crazy whereas Patty," Chiarot said. "It's just a little flick of the wrist and it's kind of where he wants it. ... I think it's the most dangerous shot in the league."

 

Jets coach Paul Maurice senses the confidence oozing from Laine just from watching him at practice. He can see an entirely different player from a month ago.

 

"If you're getting close to 50," Maurice said. "Any of these guys, you're feeling good about your game, confidence is a critical piece. That puck is off Patty's stick where he wants it right now every time. So he's feeling it, he's feeling good."

 

Malkin, right now might be the most dangerous player in the league. The Pittsburgh Penguins center is right there with Ovechkin, who has 39 goals, New Jersey Devils winger Taylor Hall, Stamkos and Tampa Bay Lightning teammate Nikita Kucherov and Colorado Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon in a crowded MVP race.

 

Playing on the same team as Sidney Crosby could leave Malkin underappreciated at times, but he's playing some of the best hockey of his career.

 

"I have confidence right now," Malkin said recently. "It's like every shot goes in. It's funny sometimes. I'm trying to do my best."
