Rangers go right back to work against rival Isles

After playing well but losing Tuesday night against a heated rival, the New York Rangers will go right back to work Wednesday night when they host another nearby team with which they have a history of bad blood.

The New York Islanders will come to Madison Square Garden desperate for points. They are three points behind the Toronto Maple Leafs for the final wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference with both teams having just 10 games remaining. It's been a struggle of late for the Islanders, who have lost four of five after a 15-6-3 stretch breathed life into a nearly dead season.

"It should be a good atmosphere, probably a good game for us to have, too -- to get that emotion going that we'll need to play with the rest of the way here," the Islanders' Andrew Ladd said to Newsday.
