POWER RANGERS

TSN’s Scott Cullen ranks the Rangers #1 this week.

1.    NEW YORK RANGERS 17-8-1
THIS WEEK: 1 LAST WEEK: 3

GF: 3.65  GA: 2.46  SA CF%: 46.7
PP%: 22.7 PK%: 85.1
The Rangers have been treading water lately, 4-4-1 in the past nine games, and have worrisome possession numbers that are in decline (44.4% of score-adjusted shot attempts since Nov. 1 ranks 29th), but they’re scoring like mad, so good enough to slide back into the the No. 1 spot.
Key Injuries: C Mika Zibanejad (fibula), RW Pavel Buchnevich (back).
