LAST MEETING:
Jan. 9, 2007: Islanders 5, Rangers 3
@ Madison Square Garden.
The Rangers came into the game with four straight wins. The Islanders came in with six straight losses.
Everything seemed to be in the Blueshirts' favor at The Garden, but by the evening's end, it was the visitors who were celebrating.
The Isles broke a 3-3 tie with two goals in a 27-second span of the final period and held on for a 5-3 win.




The Rangers have lost all 4 meetings this season against their state rivals and are looking to reverse
their fortunes in their final meeting of the season between the two on Garden ice.
On Thursday they'll faceoff again on the Island. Huge points on the line.


A sweep by the Rangers would leave them only 2 points behind the Isles,
but a sweep by the Islanders would separate them by 10 points...
