The Rangers (25-25-8, 58) complete a four-game road stretch with Tuesday night's game. They're 3-4-1 this month after Sunday's 6-5 loss at Pittsburgh, in which they erased a 3-1 lead before allowing three third-period goals.
"We don't quit. We keep coming," Rangers coach David Quinn said. "We have to stop digging ourselves those holes. Don't let the situation rattle you."
Hurricanes goalie Petr Mrazek posted a 27-save shutout of the Rangers on Feb. 8 in New York. He's coming off his second shutout of the month Saturday night when he blanked the Dallas Stars, stopping 33 shots.
"He was amazing," McGinn said. "We really feed off that, and it gives our team a lot of energy."
Even while winning the first two games of the three-game homestand, the Hurricanes have been outshot by the Edmonton Oilers (41-27) and Stars (33-27). That's why the steady -- and sometimes outstanding -- play from Mrazek and goaltender Curtis McElhinney has been so crucial. >> Read More
