VIDEO: 30 teams in 30 days – New York Rangers

The New York Rangers surprised with just how good they were a season ago, but that unexpected success has changed the perspective about the team. Now it is anticipated New York will be among the best in the NHL.

New York acquired Rick Nash from the Columbus Blue Jackets, providing the team with a wicked scoring tandem of Nash and Marian Gaborik. With an all-star cast on offense and a young, emerging defense, New York is dangerous enough. But toss in the fact Henrik Lundqvist backs it all up in the blue ice and it`s easy to see why New York is the Stanley Cup favorite of many.
