    NHL roundup: Streaking Rangers blow by Predators

    The New York Rangers remained red-hot Sunday night when they rode a six-goal first period to a 7-0 rout of the visiting Nashville Predators. The Rangers, who blanked the Pittsburgh Penguins 6-0 on Saturday night, have won four straight by a combined score of 22-5. K'Andre Miller scored twice in the first, and Filip Chytil, Mika Zibanejad, Tyler Motte and Artemi Panarin also collected goals as the Rangers tied the franchise record for most goals in a first period, set most recently against the Los Angeles Kings in an 8-3 win on Dec. 15, 1999.

    Clock ticking on Flames' playoff hopes as Kings matchup looms

    The Calgary Flames are running out of real estate in their bid to return to the Stanley Cup playoffs. Working overtime hasn't been the answer either. The Flames are scheduled to play the first of back-to-back games in California when they face the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night. "We have to get every point we can," Flames defenseman Rasmus Andersson said.

    Kings' game against Flames could light a fire

    If the Kings had let a tiny bit of malaise seep into their game during a successful stretch that has mostly pitted them against non-playoff teams at home, maybe a good, old-fashioned cage match will reinvigorate the black and silver. On Monday, they'll welcome the Calgary Flames and their head coach Darryl Sutter, who guided the Kings to two Stanley Cups and famously said of the atmosphere he expected during road games in the playoffs that “cages are a good thing.” The two sides will be slugging it out with differing goals: The Kings are in a points tie atop the Western Conference, while defending Pacific Division champion Calgary is fighting for its very playoff life. Calgary currently sits four points behind Winnipeg for the final wild-card berth.
