Mats Zuccarello’s overtime-winning shootout goal could go a long way in determining how high the Rangers finish in the Eastern Conference.
Affectionately nicknamed “The Hobbit” by some, Zuccarello is a gifted offensive talent whose quick-moving legs, remarkable vision and skills on the puck can cause problems for any defense.
The agent for suspended Islanders defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky says he will report to the team by Feb. 11.

Ilya Kovalchuk will be back in the United States Tuesday and practice with the Devils on Wednesday.
Ilya Kovalchuk’s desire to remain in the KHL must have burned Lou Lamoriello and the Devils up.

Before Game 5, Jagr called over to the legendary Devils goalie, “Hey, Marty, how does it feel to be 40?” It must feel pretty good — Brodeur is moving on.
It was a tragedy felt well outside the hockey world. Nets coach Avery Johnson was in Russia when a Kontinental Hockey League team’s chartered jet crashed, killing 44 people.
For the Rangers, an already dark summer just became unimaginably worse. New York players struggled to comprehend a shocking loss to their sport after a chartered Russian plane carrying several NHL veterans crashed.
