The Rangers are coming off a 4-3 win at Nashville on Saturday night. The victory snapped a three-game skid, but the team has earned points in eight of its last 10 games.
Marc Staal and Jesper Fast scored third periods goals as the Rangers overcame a 3-2 deficit to beat the Predators.
"You could feel it," Rangers coach David Quinn told NHL.com. "There was excitement, guys understood what they needed to do. There was a different feel tonight for sure."
Before the game, the Rangers veterans held a team meeting stressing the importance about playing strong on the road trip heading into the All-Star Break.
"The guys had a meeting today and talked about playing winning hockey and understanding situational hockey, and I thought we did a heck of a job of it tonight," Quinn told NHL.com. "I give our leadership group a lot of credit. ... I give those guys a lot of credit because they took the bull by the horns, and we played winning hockey when it mattered."
