Surging Rangers continue pursuit of Devils in New Jersey

The New Jersey Devils and the New York Rangers handled their initial games after clinching a playoff berth in significantly different ways.

Because of those dramatically different results, the race for second place in the Metropolitan Division and home ice in the first round of a possible playoff series between the rivals is even closer heading into the final meeting Thursday night in Newark, N.J.

New Jersey (46-20-8, 100 points) holds a two-point lead over the Rangers (44-20-10, 98 points) partially because it is 2-0-1 in the season series.
