RALEIGH, North Carolina (Ticker) — The New York Rangers begin a
three-game road trip against the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday,
when they aim for their fourth consecutive victory.

New York, which has scored 14 goals over its current run, used a
key tally from Nikolai Zherdev with 6:22 remaining in the third
period to post a 4-3 triumph over the Eastern Conference-leading
Boston Bruins on Sunday.

The Rangers had dropped four in a row and seven of eight prior
to getting back on track, and are locked in a three-way tie with
the Florida Panthers and Pittsburgh Penguins for sixth place in
the conference with 76 points.
