Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY SportsVincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports Paul Maurice is right.

The Rangers have won consecutive games in overtime and now lead this best-of-7 series 2-1. They could move within one win of their first Stanley Cup Final appearance in 10 years with a victory in Game 4 on Tuesday in South Florida. But instea ..read more

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY SportsCharles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports Kaapo Kakko returned to the New York Rangers lineup for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Florida Panthers on Sunday.

But their elite power play is a huge part of the Rangers success and make up. Like Igor Shesterkin’s goaltending, the power play sets the Rangers apart from most teams in the NHL.
